Congrats to Bama for a great game by them tonight. That oline was all you fans said it was, and it kicked our butt. Oh and your defense was awful good too. Hope we get to see you again next year out in Pasadena, you will probably be there, and I will be cheering my Irish all the way there, I hope. Good win and good night to all.
Gringo Mafia Strength Coach
I'll second that. Hell of a team & one of the greatest coaches ever. Bama took it to us & we were never in it. I hope that ND can get to that level (I believe we are on the right track). Congrats Bama, my hats off to you.
Great talking with you on this board.
Thanks for the props to the team. They definitely followed Saban tonight.
You are below 500 in the SEC.
If and when you get back it will be the same as this year Media Hype. Nothing you do on the field will get you there. The media looked at nothing but what they wanted to see and that was you in that game. You did not belong in that game but they made it happen. So don't get your hopes up cuz another undefeated season against nobodies can not be hyped two years in a row. They have to wait at least two years to sell that crap again, but you know they will have another candidate. And it looks to be one of many OSU for the media hype darling. SEC baby!!!!!!!
Tonight sure made it look like we were overrated this year. But I assure you an undefeated ND team will always be in the BCS championship, or the playoff. That my friend is your true lock.
Tonight the stage was a little too big and the lights a little too bright, oh and the oline was too good. But the Irish will learn they will grow and they will be back I do believe. Maybe next year maybe not, but Kelly will have them back.
You won't fare any better and sooner or later the network will tire of watching you get skull drug up and down the field.
I was not speaking in jest when I said you would be a five hundred SEC team and that may be too generous for you.
LSU had a better line backer than Manti in Minter who played against much much better competition and had better number. Manti was a feel good story and ND was also, the Media rode both like a pack mule. But when it came time to put up there was nothing there.
Yes your coach was right in saying his only chance was if Bama did not come out for the second half. It will be the same next year if they can con you into the game be it against Bama, LSU, Florida, aTm or Miss State. You will be skull drug up and down the field again and that my friend is your lock. Skull Drug.......
The same Florida team that got their skull drug by Louisville?
3 time POTW
So the pinnacle team in the nation, and the sec, wins a great game tonight and that causes you to jump off the deep end, declaring that ND stinks and would get "skull drug" by many teams in the sec.
The sec is a very good conference, the best in the NCAA; however, I fail to see how this game proves your point that ND would be a "500 at best team" in the sec. Lsu not looking great at the end of the year. A good team yes but not great.
S. Carolina another good team, but dominant, hardly. A last second heave was needed to beat um. So not sure on the "skull drugging" there.
Uga yeah they are very good, but none of those other teams are bama. So other than sec pride and anger or jealousy at the attention ND gets, warranted or not, I do not see how you are coming to your conclusion here.
Oh I forgot the Miss St. comment, now that's just plain hyperbole and a lot of reaching. Did you watch them verse an above average northwestern team? Because if you had you would not be mentioning them here.

Just lets you know how bad ND is and will be.
It is galling that a teams as undeserving as ND gets to the game on the back of the media. Period.
The teams you beat are weak and should have shown every one not hyping you that you were a top 20 team but not even in the running for a top ten much less a number one ranking.
You are a top 25 program as we speak and you make the BCSCG as an independent weakling. We in the SEC have been consistent on this for the last 15 years that the talking heads pump you up at the season start every year. You did not deserve it this year or the past 15 but you get it and accept it.
If you don't get it watch the game again, you were not competitive in the game. Not competitive at all. Alabama competed in the SEC this year and were taken to the wire and beaten. In this environ you would not be able to compete ever. And that is another lock for you.
Just know year in and year out your ranking is not based on performance but by Media bias and nothing more.
Thanks...and don't listen to the drunk Cajun...God only knows how he stays upright.
