I think there is a pretty good chance that they could. Golson is pretty "meh" and they really don't have any big threats at WR. What about their weak running game? They have a good receiving TE.
Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
We'll probably lose by 600...
Jordan Jefferson isn't playing and Miles isn't calling the plays. I think we'll be alright, least looking forward to crossing the 50.
You might not get shutout but you will get run all over. On BOTH sides of the ball
So a repeat of last years game except we don't get shutout?
No we don't shut them out. We spot them a FG lead.
Final score 3-2 Irish
I can't wait for Bama to lose.... It's going to be GREAT, I've never heard so much disrespect for another team than I have from Bama and SEC fans...

it's been bad. most of the bama fans on here are POS. There are a couple good ones....
The same thing could be said about your fanbase. I keep telling you Notre Dame fans about throwing stones while living in glass houses.
To anwer the OP's question. They will put on a lot better show than your team did against us last year. I'm of course going to say we will win, but we won't shut them out. Our defense isn't near as good as we were last year, but our offense is a lot better than it was last year.
I think it will be a competitive game that will come down to the fourth quarter.
Edit: I mean this in all seriousness though ND fans. The worst thing that could have happened to your team facing us, other than the fact that Saban has over a month to prepare for your freshman qb, is that we have faced Manziel already. Our defense has faced a dual threat guy that can make plays. Manziel lit us up in the first quarter, but after that, our defense really had him figured out for the most part. Kid made two throws that were absolutely perfect and had our CB/S's draped all over them. The one on the corner fade route inside the fifteen, and the other one where he put it on the money between two defenders around midfield. The latter just made me shake my head that he even held onto the ball. It was a hell of a catch on the other throw as well.

on this board bama fans are way worse than the ND fans.
I don't think it's that bad on TBB. A lot of them are just screwing with you guys. It started boring a few of them messing with the AU fans. I haven't seen many talking shit to the ND fans about this game. I've seen more BS from fanbases from other teams in the SEC than I have seen from ours when it comes to January 7th.
Edit: It would also be better if you actually called out the fans that you are calling POS posters instead of lumping a whole fanbase into it.

Not much difference in Jefferson & Golson IYAM. At least JJ had a lot of big game experience.

I think you will be disappoint.
Says a ND fan, so I'm sure you are unbiased, right? The "Catholics vs Cousins" graphic that you have in your signature give you a world of credibility.

Very funny that you mention the sig pic btw, I live in the south and have for my whole life. If you are trying to equal my sig pic to the behavior of the bama fans on this board then you sir are dumb.
You obviously weren't here this offseason. My disrespect for Notre Dame is only rivaled by the disrespect I showed Michigan
Because there are like 3 ND fans and eleventy billion Bammers
This, lots of crying going on from the Domers and the game hasn't been played yet.
We probably won't beat them that bad, just by 14 or so.

31-10 Bama. Manti Te'o cries like Tebow.
I think we kinda have to know what we're getting ourselves into, irishyoung, star69, and myself are probably the only blueandgold members that dare entire tBB. Most domers on our board are an older more civil crowd who avoid this crude troll castle at all costs.
There is also a big difference between "I expect 'bama to win because I think we're a better team." and the threads that OP "hey ND, on a scale from 1 to butthurt how pissed will you be when our 3rd string QB runs for 100yds?". It's probably a 90/10 split of the Alabama fanbase and when you come across that 10% you just gotta be thankful that you're smarter than that person.
