As far as the SEC dominance comment...I guess there's a conspirancy that the SEC has won 7 titles in a row...plus have had the longest standing conference championship game to go along with its schedule...FL, LSU, FL, Bama, Auburn, Bama, Bama...

If you can show me any phase of that game where Notre Dame was competitive, I will concede about momemtum and blah blah blah. The fact of the matter is that on the opening drive the Tide marched 82 yards like it was a practice scrimmage and walked over Mr. Teo (second in Heisman voting). The longest drive against Notre Dame's defense in the regular season was 75 yards. Alabama had drives of 82, 80, 97 and 86 yards. All of that is fact, not biased.
Completely agree. BUT, that doesn't deter my sideline confidence piece one bit.

I only pointed out lsu and florida because they are two of the sec perennial 'power' teams, yet they got beat by 'inferior' opponents.....especially florida. Wow, what an embarrassment that was. I haven't elaborated on it because I don't want to rub it in to Tricky but that is a black eye on the 'ever powerful' sec.

As for the Big t-four-ten, 2-4 and a complete disgrace. The only argument for that is the two best teams were not playing this bowl season so the entire placing of Big t-four-ten teams was shifted with the matchups being lopsided. Make no mistake, the Big t-four-ten is not doing well and I'l be the first to admit it. Next year when THE Ohio State can play it will be different.
Hey CP - I agree with you 100% Florida & LSU losing their bowl games was absolutely pathetic!!! No excuses here - Both teams were out coached!!!

I understand confidence issues...but championship caliber teams should not be so distraught or lose so much confidence over one call in the 1st quarter when the score is 7-0 that it causes them to fall apart. I understand your point, but do not agree that it had anything to do with the outcome of the game. Nothing was given to Alabama in that game, they took it.

Agreed especially on LSU's part. Looked like the same old faulty over conservative offensive game plan. It Also looked like the team wasn't emotionally in the game either.

At least the SEC continues its stranglehold on the National Championship.
