BCS Title Game Open Thread
What do you have to do to get back in this game?
"We'll, uh, maybe Alabama should just not show up." -quote of the night, Brian Kelly
HEY GUYZ DID YOU HEAR MCCARRON'S GIRLFRIEND WAS MISS ALABAMA?
Not Lumberg - anyone but Lumberg
No, wonder if they are going to show her on tv. Also wondering what college she attends - no way it could be Auburn.
I know, right??? That'd be totally WEIRD. They totally hate each other. I know, I watched "Roll Tide/War Eagle" once.
If I am Kelly, screw it. No talking in the locker room, just tackling drills.
Saban has the stare and speech pattern of a sociopathic serial killer, ready to pick apart his victim....piece....by piece....
There is no animosity there. Only the understanding of what must be done.
Did Brian Kelly just concede ala the famous Bobby Williams postgame.
Quick, someone merge these into one gif:
Brian Kelly interviewing for Bears and Browns job at halftime.
Is that possible?
How does Florida stay at #2 with a loss to Louisville.
Florida lost...I forgot about that
The Florida team who just got shitslapped by a bad Lousiville team?
by Louisville in the Sugar. Yes on the other 3 but Oregon will probably sneak in at 2 or 3..
ND will probably still be in the top 5
Saban basically saying there's nothing to complain about. And Kelly basically saying the only chance they have is if Bama doesn't show up or the second half. I didn't really like his strategy of "we have to tke chances to have a chance." It's true, but it has to come off to his team like they need miracles to win. Which they did, but bad for morale.
wasnt a physical difference between the 2 teams nd it would come down to execution, etc.
Well, either there is a physical difference or his coaching stinks or both.
Men vs boys.
The shit-eating grin on Mark May's face will be the Mona Lisa of Schadenfreude.
Bama just needs to score twice to score more points than they did against us.
I WANT MY FREE SHRIMP APP
The best tweet about the game I have seen "Someone call the Lehman Brothers and tell them they're no longer part of the most lopsided SEC victory""
This is so awesome.
In Rudy! Damn you Hollywood! Lol
Why is urban Meyer there?
because he's the best coach evarrrrrrr!!
teams rather than his own bowl. Zinggggg.
Really, in all seriousness how is that allowed?
Doesn't that provide an unfair recruiting advantage?
Ah...it's still somewhat sickening, thinking back to all those turnovers. I would have loved a rematch this year, but I guess we'll just have to wait for UTL II to beat the Irish again...
Alabama goes into the locker room to hear a speech on how you need to play 60 minutes, whereas I assume Notre Dame goes into the locker room to hear a speech on how the 60 minutes are half gone and where have they been. It's all perspective, I suppose.
In any case, one of the more interesting tidbits - ND is 0-5 on 3rd downs, and Alabama is 6-8, not to mention Alabama is outgaining ND at a 2.5:1 clip right now.
Urban Meyer has no personality.
He's probably mad he's been dragged away from his family.
I can't believe Desmond Howard has to endure sitting next to that scumbag.
WTF, what is Urbz doing there?
Probably lobbying for a claim to the NC, as the nation's only undefeated team.
Was locking out non-members from their "game watch" board (also known as the "Cup 'o Schadenfreude"). What I would give for use five minutes.
Nice year for OSU to be the only unbeaten team. hahahahaha
His Saban impression in the morning
ND = Apollo Creed, Bama = Ivan Drago
I'm no fan of Brian Kelly's by any means but i have to give him credit for his candor walking off the field at half. He actually seemed pretty composed and acurately assessed the situation (their only hope is if Alabama doesnt come out for the second half).
Notre Dame: Return to Fraudulence.
Notre Dame: Return to Fraudulence.
Return to flatulence.
We'll always have the fact that MSU had him and lost him.
I was just thinking about the fact that he actually coached for MSU. Know who else he coached for before MSU? Cleveland Browns.
Your bigger problem was who was his head coach that you fired.
God bless you Desmond for calling it like it is...
Classic Desmond, go blue!
ND shows up with 8 new starters on O and 4 new D starters. I think the loss of 4 OL and Teo are their biggest issues.
Hopefully we procure 6 TOs from them and give them a Detroit style curb stomping.
Lol @ desmond "This is just a good ol' fashion butt whoopin'"
They wish. The only chance they have is to pull the Delorean around and hit 88.8 mph. Though I don't think they have enough gigiwatts.
Ehh all you need is 1.21 jigawatts. Or a bolt of lightning. Either will do.
Did not like Desmond touching him on the shoulder. Fuck you Urb.
And BTW, why the fuck is he on tv? He is a coach now not an analyst. Go away you fraudulent fuck.
So, all ND needs to do is:
1. Get the ball at half and score TD
2. Force a punt/turnover
3. Score a TD
4. Force a punt/turnover
5. Score a TD
6. Force a punt/turnover
7. Score a TD
Then gentlemen, we will have a ballpark on our hands
Sorry - ballgame (damn auto correct)
8."Dial Up The Leprechaun."
Meyer: "Um...bring large caliber firearms, like that guy in "The Last Boyscout."
Mccarron better keep one eye on that girlfriend, Urbs the coed impaler, is in the house...
Fab Five special is on ESPNU.
this game weirdly therapeutic
LOL is anyone else watching the First Row stream?
Jewelry commercial just now: "We understand the love between Arkansas couples like only an Arkansas jeweller can."
The joke is just too easy, I'll let you finish it in your own minds.
Because they grew up under the same roof.
ABC should have asked not to show his request that you video yourself grabbing the TV at a key moment in the game. It was over an hour ago.
In a show of class, Alabama comes out to play the second half with their helmets on backwards!!
More shots of AJ's girlfriend will keep me watching
Damn. That is a great play by Haha.
God I wish Clinton Dix would have came to Michigan.
I question a coaching staff, that keeps going after Milliner. Who drew up that game plan?
We need a lacy too
I don't think he has gone down on first contact yet.
Can't wait til our o-line looks like this.
Wow. Amazing performance by Bama so far, though I hate to see so many guys go down to injury.
This is just silly now.
... the dam is about to burst
This is a disgrace to college football.
In case anyone thinks the nd pr machine didn't manufacture hype...
#55 for ND is one of their bright spots on D. In addition to a rapist wit, dude assaults the ballcarrier with ferocity
but what about the great domer defense?
Keep it coming. Bury those domers far underground.
So far that they never get above ground.
5 star Clinton-Dix for TO.
Out trots 2 5-star tackles with 5-star Yeldon to run behind them.
Saban has recruited like a machine for years. Wow.
He has. It helps when you can have 5 recruiting classes every 4 years. And cut all of your busts.
Mods started 2nd half thread if you don't like scrolling. Or hang here. Whatever works. Just FYI.
thanks for the heads up
ND's defense has already given up more points than ours did (Denard threw a pick-six) against Bama.
High tide... Clever Brent
Notre Dame's chances: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0lV6uMtcz8
This is the curse of Freekbase
Mussberger is now trying to make the game a soap opera with Jones and McCarron, this is what the game has come to
They are a great team, and very well coached.
I dont want UM to play Alabama as long as $aban is there, unless it is in basketball or hockey.
