It’s #1 ND versus #2 Alabama far all the marbles.

 

I like that ND defense. But he money has ‘Bama wining by 10. I bet against that line alright, but i don’t think ND wins.

 

Even though I would prefer that they won this game.

NotableGolden Domer Facts.

The Fighting Irish have 13 national championships recognized by the NCAA, first out of all FBS schools in the post-1900 era and third all-time behind Princeton and Yale.[2] A record seven Notre Dame players have won the Heisman trophy (Ohio State won 7 trophies with 6 players). Additionally, Notre Dame has produced an NCAA record 96 consensus All-Americans,[3] and 32 unanimous All-Americans, more than any other university.[3]

 

Distinctions

  • As of the end of the 2012 regular season, Notre Dame has the second highest winning percentage in NCAA Division I-A (FBS) history (.734), behind Michigan (.735) (minimum 100+ years playing football).[10][35][36][37]
  • As of the end of the 2012 regular season, Notre Dame is third in wins among Division I-A/FBS programs (865), trailing Michigan (903) and Texas (866).[37]
  • As of the end of the 2012 regular season, Notre Dame has the fewest losses of any NCAA Division I program (300) that has been playing football for 100+ years.[38]
  • As of 2012, Notre Dame has 105 winning seasons in 124 years of football, and only 13 losing seasons.[35]
  • The football program has the most individual Heisman Trophy winners at seven (Ohio State has seven Heisman Trophies that were won by six players).
  • As of 2012, Notre Dame has produced more 1st Team All-Americans (188), consensus All-Americans (81 players on 97 selections) and unanimous All-Americans (33) in football than any other college program.[3][39]
  • Notre Dame is represented by 48 players and coaches in the College Football Hall of Fame, the most of any university.[40][41]
  • Ten former players are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, second only to USC (11). Notre Dame has produced the second largest number of players drafted into the National Football League of any program in the country. As of the 2011 NFL draft, 469 players have been drafted, second only to USC’s 472.[42]
  • Helped by its status as a highly regarded academic institution (ranked 19th by U.S. News & World Report),[43] Notre Dame is second only to Nebraska in Academic All-Americans (43).
  • Since 1962, Notre Dame has graduated 98.74% of its football players in four years. As of 2006, only 13 football players in this time have left Notre Dame without finishing their degree requirements. Also of note is the 90% graduation rate of ND’s African American players (only Navy and Boston College have higher African American graduation rates).[44]
  • Notre Dame holds the NCAA record for Most consecutive wins over one opponent, beating the US Naval Academy (USNA) 43 times in a row before falling to them in 2007.[45]
  • The football program is also known for ending the Oklahoma Sooners’ NCAA record winning streak of 47 games in 1957. Coincidentally, Oklahoma’s 28–21 loss to Notre Dame to open the 1953 season was the last loss before the beginning of the streak.[46]
  • Notre Dame has had 12 undefeated seasons and 10 others with at most one loss or tie.[47] The 2012 season will either become their 13th unbeaten season or 11th with at most one loss or tie, depending on the outcome of the 2013 BCS National Championship Game.
  • Notre Dame is 3–3–1 in games where the national title winners from the previous two years have met in a regular season game. There have only been 13 of these games played in college football history. Notre Dame has played in 7 of the 13 games:
    • 1945 – Army def. Notre Dame 48–0
    • 1947 – Notre Dame def. Army 27–7
    • 1968 – Notre Dame tie USC 21–21
    • 1974 – USC def. Notre Dame 55–24
    • 1978 – Notre Dame def. Pitt 26–17
    • 1989 – Miami def. Notre Dame 27–10
    • 1990 – Notre Dame def. Miami 29–20
  • The Bowl Championship Series’ “Notre Dame rule”[48] gives the university unique privileges in the postseason among independents. If Notre Dame finishes in the top eight of BCS teams, it is automatically selected.[49] The university receives $4.5 million for playing in a BCS game and $1.3 million when it does not.[50] In essence, Notre Dame is treated like a conference team in either case. The university’s athletic director acts as an equal to the commissioners of the 11 Football Bowl Subdivision conferences when they discuss BCS issues.[51]
  • Notre Dame is one of only three out of the current 124 Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) teams to have never played a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) team since the divisions were created in 1978. The other two are UCLA and USC.[52]
  • Notre Dame is one of only two Catholic universities that field a team in the Football Bowl Subdivision, the other being Boston College.

 Notable Crimson Tide Facts:

The Alabama Crimson Tide football team represents the University of Alabama (variously Alabama, UA, or ‘Bama) in the sport of American football. The Crimson Tide competes in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) and the Western Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC).[5] The Crimson Tide is among the most storied and decorated programs in NCAA history. Since beginning play in 1892, the program has accepted 14 of the national championships awarded to the team,[2][6][7] including 9 wire-service (AP or Coaches) national titles in the poll-era, the most of any current FBS program. From 1958 to 1982, the team was led by Hall of Fame coach Paul “Bear” Bryant, who won six national championships with the program.[6] Despite numerous national and conference championships, it was not until 2009 that an Alabama player received a Heisman Trophy, when running back Mark Ingram became the university’s first winner.[8]

As of the completion of the 2011 season, Alabama has 814 official victories[a][b] in NCAA Division I (an additional 21 victories were vacated and 8 victories and 1 tie were forfeited), has won 27 conference championships (4 Southern Conference and 23 SEC championships) and has made an NCAA-record 59 postseason bowl appearances. Other NCAA records include 23 10-game+ win streaks, and 18 seasons with a 10–0 start. The program has 31 10–win seasons (32, one vacated),[9][10] and has 33 (34, one vacated)[b] bowl victories, both NCAA records.[11] Alabama has completed 12 undefeated seasons, 10 of which were perfect seasons. The Crimson Tide leads the SEC West Division with eight division titles and eight appearances in the SEC Championship Game. Alabama holds a winning record against every current and former SEC school, except for SEC newcomer Missouri (2-2). The Associated Press (AP) ranks Alabama 4th in all-time final AP Poll appearances, with 49 through the 2011 season.[12][13]

    Open thread right? Ok, I got this from freepers. I listened to the call (it’s about 5 minutes long). A North Carolina police Lt. phoned in to say he is watching the Feds team up w/ LEOs for training to take down the American people -- drones will be part of it. it was very disturbing.

    @ eaglesoars:I think drones are just a normal weapon. Can be misued by anyone. Emergency responders in local government all have two way hooks into the state and feds whereever they are at.

    One would need to distinguish between normal Emergency plans and wacky ones. A wacky one should be leaked.

    the politicians here do have a jones for doing a handgun grab of some type. they talk about it all the time. It is only the 2nd Amendment that makes their thoughts unconstitutional that stop thems.

    Manziel turned 20 a month ago yesterday. I’m thinking there’s another inch or 2 in height and another 15 or 20 lbs. in his near future. The question is, can he get bigger and maintain his speed and agility?

    linebackers in the NFL will run him down…agility is more important, and yet pocket awareness and reading defenses are even way more important

    I think it’s more important to understand your passing lanes and exactly where your receivers are…and if you do that real good and are 6/4, then you are John Elway (who could throw on the run and across his body like no one ever else)

    wow hate to disturb the football but a poster on the Washington Examiner just blew me away…

    U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
    * Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
    * New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
    * National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
    * Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

    Let’s now remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:

    * Annual family income: $21,700
    * Money the family spent: $38,200
    * New debt on the credit card: $16,500
    * Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
    * Total budget cuts: $385

    Ok here is is a halftime recap. I feel just like Jack and I did in the hey day at WLGF when we had the sports blog world at our feet.

    The Tide has come and the Irish have felt the tsunami. Going into halftime the towering Big Crimson Alabama Badda Bing Bam has come to deal the Irish a crushing tidal blow back. Where do the Irish go from here? Pray that it doesn’t get worse. There is nothing worse than a blowout, but that is worse for us watching than for those playing.
