All year all I wanted was for ND to stop being so lucky and it never happened. Nebraska got their due in the B1G title game. Notre Dame is hopefully getting their due here

"Should be Fightin' Irish football! What's going on here?!?!" Is this NBC?
I want a purple Brian Kelly by the end of the 1st Q
Wow. ND, the team that got virtually every break all year to get where they are, then 2 successive calls go against them that could definitely affect this game.
Oh shut it ND. You've had quite a few favorable calls over...history.
I'm happy about it. I don't care that that call will be referenced by Domers for the next 50 years as the reason they didn't win the 2012 National Title. You know it will be referenced for the next 50 years at least
No their losing to Alabama by 60 will be the sole reason they don't win the national title. They're getting outclassed right now.
Didn't we get called for that against Bama? And I could have sworn Herbie and Brent were talking about how it was the right call...
I don't feel sorry for ND. Not tonight. Not after all the insanely good luck they got this year.
Another blown tackle by T'eo, just like the TD. Dude is good but soooo overrated.
That was a good call.
- The SEC
but that was a catch and that was no penalty on the ensuing punt
Expert ref, not much of an expert.
ND getting gashed.
Which shade of purple will we see tonight?
The darker the better...lack of oxygen.
All of the above.
Bama oline channeling their inner Moses
At that call.
ND fans wrong... Commentators wrong... Go figure!
In a few years our O-line is gonna be that good.
I guess someone doesn't know what redundant means.
Nothing against Teo, he's a great kid, has a great pedigree, and I would love to have him, but he's showing he's not as good as he was advertised all year.
Is Manning any less a great player because he had a bad game versus the Saints? You can't judge a guy on one game.
Do you remember that game where he was all over Denard, pretty impressive...
Lacy is running the hell out of this "superhero" nd defense
I wish we had more run plays to the outside. I'm jealous.
ND fans are already conceding defeat, wanting to shut this whole thing down and turn it into a "woe is us" parade.
Take your beating and enjoy it.
Lions need defense more than anything. They lost a lot of close games this year
The Lions OL is okay. It's the defense that is atrocious.
Stanford was robbed of a game tying touchdown in double overtime against ND. They also got flagged for a pass interference in the 4th quarter that was invisible.
Against a crappy Pitt team, ND was offsides on Pitt's chip shot field goal attempt which would have won the game in double overtime yet never got flagged and the Panthers never got the rekick attempt. There was also a 4th quarter phantom interference on Pitt that set up ND's game tying score. Not to mention the ref missed a ND player punching a Pitt player and no punishment was ever handed to them.
So you keep booing, ND fans. There is such a thing called karma.
The ball has bounced to nd all year, but against a saban coached Bama, the ball doesn't lie
Love love love !!
ND fans should take solace in the fact the refs put them into the MNC in the first place. I didn't hear any of them complain about Stanford's non-TD in overtime.
Ok so that interference call was for the stanford non-td. The fumble's (if it stands, even though it looks like he's down) for the phantom PI. They have quite a few more bad calls against their favor to go so that they'd be square with the football karma.
I didn't realize Bama's o-line will need to replace 3 guys next year, although they'll probably just reload.
Brent Musberger is already making me want to punch cute little babies.
Not the cute ones! Punch the ugly ones first.
Haha, Tide Rolling
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha completely gave up already ha ha ha ha ha ha first quarter ha ha ha ha
God, that offensive line is scary.
I hope derrick green becomes the lacy of michigan
Ha!!!!! Suck it Kelly!
I think these refs are anti-Michigan. If they keep making calls like this, we are gonna have to listen to both these fan bases for the next decade.
Where the hell is Teo?
Getting smoked by play action, that's what a running game does for you.
Did not know that
Watching Bama's OLine just makes me feel great about the future with our great recruiting along the front trenches.. A world class OLine is just dominating this game.
