Look I was pulling for the Irish but they obviously had no business in that game.
Your program lost....Admit it. Trying to make this comparison is OLD. The big 12 and Big 10 folks have tried to make that claim as a reason for their failure in the big games too. Get over it. It's a straw-man argument.
yep SEC WHY WAS ND EVEN NO.ONE BCS WAY TO GO BAMA>>>>FROM A GA. BULLDOGS FAN
Ditto. And as far as academics, LSU does pretty damn good in that regard, and they are a kick *** SEC team.
As far as non conference opponents, Alabama played Michigan this season, Auburn played Clemson, LSU played Oregon, etc.
Also, the in conference competition is better than out of conference competition. See PITT vs ND and PITT vs Ole Miss.
Face it, the SEC is back on top again. I'm not a Bammer, but I know where the best football program in America lives.
notre dame at #5, Bama is 2 spots below at #7. 2 SEC teams in the top 10 and 6 in the top 20.
I'll bet Lou Holtz is on suicide watch .
I always support my Southern brethren, even if it pains me to do so.
They have an odd way of determining success.
If a school does horribly at graduating all male students but somewhat less horribly in graduating football players, they rank highly. So Boise State (which graduates 26% of all male students but 60% of their football players) and Northern Illinois (51% and 66%) appear to be better than ND (96% and 83%). Kind of a joke.
The way they determine graduation rates for athletes is also different from the NCAA Graduation Success Rate. Their calculations assume any athlete who leaves school to transfer or turn pro before he gets a degree counts against % graduation whereas the NCAA figures don't count this against a school unless the athlete leaves in bad academic standing.
There's losing with dignity and then there's....
who the hell would that be?
It's funny. I was watching the game closely, and even paused and rewound a bunch of times, but I didn't see any of the players cracking open their textbooks in Miami.
Oh, wait. That's right. It was a football game and the Irish lost.
Post hoc discussions about various other positive aspects of the schools and/or their programs are non sequiturs. BTW, Bama's got better bar-b-que and prettier girls.
Well here is what I wrote in the post you quoted.
"They played poorly against Alabama, the coaches had a poor game plan, and ever if those were not the cases Alabama would have won easily."
So what do you want me to do, slit my wrists and kiss your *** in the middle of main street?
OK Mr. Moderator, next time I'll get clearance from you before I make a response to someone's post in a GT thread since you seem to take such offense LOL.
uhhhhmmmm......???? Never thought of that, but.........now that you mention it.......
You attempted to salvage any dignity from the beating ND received by trying to compare academics, is hilarious!!!
Alabama's graduation rate is approx. 77%, very respectable in college football, but certainly not a match to ND in the high 90's.
Alabama would no doubt be the underdog in a spelling bee, but football ain't a spelling bee.
Before the game it was all about ND front seven, red zone defense, impossible to run on, QB as good as Johnny Football. After the game it's suddenly all about academics, gray shirts and cheating.
ND fired their last 3 coaches, not because of graduation rates, but because they didn't win enough games. Same as everyone else does.
Told y'all the SEC would again.
A successful football program funds all sorts of needs and luxuries at a university.
