Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Bama by 14+
How many total points does everyone think will be scored in the game?
I'm not allowed to provide color commentary or I become a hater. I can only provide bare facts.
hahaha, great response.
Hadn't seen it laid out this way. Interesting, although it won't help us on Monday.
So ND played 9 games against bowl teams in the regular season?
Alabama played 6 bowl teams in the regular season, and 7 when you add in Georgia from the CCG.
These stats don't mean much.
How in the heck is ND going to score 16? I can not see them getting into double digits, very well could be shut out. I think they might get a FG or late TD when Alabama has their 3rd string in.
Every game is different - not ND's fault the BIG gets their ass handed to them every bowl season by the SEC because of tie-in contracts.
Btw - Louisville beat Florida who beat A&M so Lousville who lost to Syracuse and UCONN, would crush A&M???
A&M beat Bama so by your logic just give Louisville the Crystal Ball if Bama wins???
You guys seem all worried trying to reassure yourselves with the countless threads but I am glad ND has Mich guy up all night.
...and of those 7 bowl teams, 3 won.
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
I think MrWoodson secretly loves ND. But is like a fruit in the closet & fights it with constant bashing threads. He is the Tom Cruise of TBB.
This board is gonna be crazy Monday night
fo sho! I'll be here win or lose.
So you then would agree that Ohio University would finish behind Ohio State in the BIG?
pSU beat north western and Wisc????
Lost to Ohio U and Virginia
Is that supposed to be a good thing, or a bad thing?
Alabama played 3 teams that won their bowl. ND played 3 teams that won their bowl.
And a team that Alabama played (W Kentucky) had the worst bowl loss of any of these teams, as they lost to Central Michigan.
No, just showing it was not a great bowl performance by their opponents either.
You're well beyond hater already, go on. Congrats on beating all the has beens and losing every game to teams with equal or more talent. Hell of a coaching job by Hoke this year, looks like I had him pegged wrong. You guys going to land any offensive playmakers this year? Two years in a row without doing so would be a death sentence, even in the average B10.

Yeah, it's obviously Hoke's fault Denard threw four picks against ND.
Yeah, it's obviously Hoke's fault Denard got injured against Nebraska.
We just weren't beating Alabama, and Borges is the one who sucked at playcalling against OSU.
Troll more, star. Jesus...
Was it not Hoke that made the decision to keep Shoelace in? Golson was stinking and got yanked. Was it not the coaching staff that asked Denard to run a system that negated his talent? Where's the troll? Have you guys landed a bunch of playmakers on O the last 2 years? Green might be the most important recruit for UM on the field in a very long time. I like the other RB, but he's a grinder, not a home run threat.
You saw how bad Bellomy was vs Nebraska. I think it's justified that he kept Denard in, because given how bad Denard was playing he is still the best option we had. And we didn't really negate his talent. He still operated from the shotgun much much more than he did under center. The troll is definitely there.
Well if you're going by rankings, not really, but it's stupid to write them off. Want me to pull up how many players that were low ranked turned out to be studs?
And - Green runs a 4.4 fourty time. If that isn't a home run threat, what is?
I guess QB isn't a play maker position. Give me a break your post doesn't pass the smell test. Do you listen to these nfl teams where the WR come from. Good wide receivers are all over the place. Not just at big universities.
Didn't watch.. No not really, I base that off my own opinion..Not saying they won't be decent, but only 1 WR you've landed the last 2 years is one I have pegged for high ceiling..I mentioned Green, did I not? Missing on Treadwell was huge for you guys, sucks but nothing you can do about it. Next year will be huge for UM. Can they show what UM's offense is really going to look like and will it impress playmakers on the outside?
With Devin Gardner throwing the ball around I think we can. Our coaches are raving about one of the WRs we picked up in the 2012 cycle, Amara Darboh. Him and Gallon, plus Funchess who had a really nice year this year and I think our recieving corps won't be that bad. I guess we'll see.
