Notre Dame Irish vs. Alabama in BCS Championship …Update: RollTide Rolls Over Irish

They’re saying this could be the most watched game ever.

Alabama (12-1) versus Notre Dame (12-0) tonight at 8:30 PM EST.

The game kicks off at 8:30 PM tonight at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.
The AP reported:

Sometimes, the buildup to a game can overwhelm what actually happens on the field.

Certainly, No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama would have to play nothing less than a classic to live up to all the hype for Monday night’s BCS championship…

…For the Crimson Tide (12-1), this is a chance to be remembered as a full-fledged dynasty. Alabama will be trying to claim its third national championship in four years and become the first school to win back-to-back BCS titles, a remarkable achievement given the ever-increasing parity of the college game and having to replace five players from last year’s title team who were picked in the first two rounds of the NFL draft…

…Despite their impressive legacy, the Fighting Irish (12-0) weren’t even ranked at the start of the season. But overtime wins against Stanford and Pittsburgh, combined with three other victories by a touchdown or less, gave Notre Dame a shot at its first national title since 1988.

After so many lost years, the golden dome has reclaimed its luster in coach Brian Kelly’s third season.

Consider this an open BCS Championship thread—

Update: I just flipped the TV to the game and saw Bama already scored. Wow.

Update: Alabama scored again right before the half and lead 28-ZIP. The announcer added this after the last touchdown, “If this was was prize fight they’d call it off.”
True.

Update: It was never even close. Alabama wins its third championship in four years under Coach Nick Saban.

    Could there be two more unlivable teams?

    Obama visited Notre Dame and not Alabama so Dame will lose….Obama’s death touch.

    14-0 Bama. Great Team, representing great folks.

  • C2S

    turned it off hour in. what a disaster

  • JPeaco

    Must be on ESPN, so I won’t watch it, but then again I don’t miss that cable bill. I just have to watch some better Roku TV.

  • Marsh626

    Yay for worshipping a bunch of amateur athletes from the ghetto…

  • Ray

    I am a Tennessee fan and am dreading my brother-in-law rubbing another Tide title in my face.

  • Mad Hatter

    #5,

    You might have something there. Alabama is up 21-0 early in the second quarter. If I recall, Obama went and campaigned for some Democrats in Governor races a few years back, and they lost.

  • Campfollower

    What a nightmare for the Notre Dame fans. We’re a Bama household, though in GA. Daughter is a recent grad and other daughter is friends with the Sabins…very good people. Kids who play for the Tide are GREAT kids. Let’s not insult them with ghetto comments. They have incredible discipline and Coach Sabin rides them hard and doesn’t sign the ghetto boys.

    I feel sorry for ND at this point. The SEC is incredible!

  • Not a fan of neither team but I knew long before the bowls even started Notre Dame was just a good team not a great team. ND should have been beaten by BYU and Pitt two unranked and average at best teams.
    Northern Illinois would have played Bama better tonight. Its only half time the Irish are in for a long and looks to be an embarrassing 2nd half.
    There are at least five teams that should be in this game and ND is not one of them.
    Good Luck Irish maybe the leprechaun can start at QB to start the 2nd half you are going to need all the luck you can get…..

  • Highlander

    Notre Dame was demoralized early with two miserable calls. Sure, they’ve been outplayed since, but it’s hard to put your heart into it when you know the cards are stacked against you. I don’t think I can remember a football season where the officiating was ever as bad as it has been this year … in college or pro.

  • Freddy

    Looks like the ONLY UNDEFEATED team left is …. Ohio State!

  • Terry Gain

    I haven’t cheered for ND since they bowed down to Obama.

  • Ghost

    grew up a Notre Dame fan, everything they were and did-
    always believed they were the Good Guys.
    after serenading The Zero, they deserve harsh karma
    let them suffer every public humiliation, piss on ’em

  • Highlander …Quit blaming the officials , you sound like Obama. A lot of the experts and odds makers said Notre Dame did not deserve to play in this game.
    Who is better ?….
    Oregon
    Kansas State
    LSU
    Florida
    Florida State
    and I would add maybe even Texas A&M….
    OH NO… 7 min into 3rd and another Bama TD….Yeah The Irish deserved to be in this game.
    Think I’ll go to bed before Bama puts in their 3rd string to put more points on the Irish…

  • driguana

    Shows the misguided power of “hype”…..either Oregon or Texas A&m would have been a much better game.

  • Ray

    While I can’t root for Alabama,I do respect the way they play. Run the ball,play tough old school d,and don’t make stupid mistakes. I hate watching spread finesse teams like Oregon and most of the B12.

  • ★FALCON★

    I’m a Michigan fan. And I hope Michigan gets a chance at Bama in next year’s Rose Bowl for all the marbles.

    They are truly a great team. And I love to see a great team knock off an over-rated team any day.

    Alabama has my respect and that of the Nation.

  • Jim

    Ray, I’m with you. Physical play, rub the ball, play tough, don’t beat yourself with turnovers, penalties, etc. will win most of the time. Even with average talent. Roll Tide!!!

  • Touchdown Jesus must have had other plans tonight !!!!!!!

    OT.. via email:

    ALABAMA FANS AHEAD OF NOTRE DAME IN CONTRIBUTIONS!

    Here’s the latest update on MAF’s first-ever BCS Trooperbowl, our effort
    to support the troops over in Afghanistan with care packages sponsored
    by college football fans back home!

    Donations have been rolling in since this morning, and as the tally
    continues to grow it looks like Alabama fans have sponsored more
    than the Notre Dame fans! But don’t worry Notre Dame fans – –
    you’re not out yet. There is still time for you to take the lead. It’s
    close and just a few donations will make the difference. Let us know
    who you support NOW.

    Thanks to overwhelming support from you, the fans and supporters of
    our troops, we will be making some troops over in Afghanistan very
    grateful and excited to receive a big shipment of care packages full of
    goodies and football gear!

    The winning team will be decided by which ever has more donations
    by the end of today’s game. A lucky Unit from either Indiana (fighting
    Irish) or Alabama (Crimson Tide)
    will receive a special shipment of
    Care Packages with a BCS theme and be crowned the BCS Trooperbowl Champions

    Saban is now right there with Bear Bryant. I think he won 4. One of Bryant’s was given to them before they actually lost their bowl game though. Back in those days the AP did that.

  • Flintstone F.

    Alabama always reminds me of these two songs from my past. Not much of a game but the night belongs to the Crimson Tide. Looks like the old days.

    tommy .. LOL!! No, Alabama earned their points, and they deserve to keep them. We have far too much redistribution going on in this country to suit me! And I know Notre Dame was outclassed … I just think they could have put up a better fight if they hadn’t been demoralized so early in the game. I’ve played competitive sports, and I know what it feels like to know you’re facing an uphill battle against a better team, and then have a few bad calls go against you early. Something just clicks in the back of your mind, and the minds of your teammates, and things go downhill from there.

    On a different note though, that leaves OSU the only undefeated team in the country!! Go Bucks!

    Watched the game. Not only did the ND players look lost, whenever the camera panned
    to their coach he had a “no clue” look on his face; he did not know what was happening.

    I am Catholic, so no religion bias in my comments. However, the ND group (fans) arrogant attitude, holier than thou behavior and those ostentatious gold helmets leave me cold.

    Its sort of how the White Sox fans feel about the Cubs fans in Chicago. They think they are
    arrogant a$$es, and they are spot on.

    I feel sad for the players who worked so hard to get there (did they? I know Saban’s team
    worked hard). Other than that I am glad they lost and lost huge.
