i am your prototypical notre dame hater...i am picking bama to win...but for some reason this notre dame team feels alot like the '02 buckeyes team that went undefeated and upset the mighty canes in the fiesta bowl for the national championship...very strong defense and clutch late in games...i just hope its as entertaining as that sec championship game was yesterday!
That is a really interesting comparison... But wasn't that Miami team (Edit: It was a 34 game win streak that was snapped--haven't been the same since) more known for a balanced-passing attack than this Bama team? That '02 OSU team was something special though---a crushing defense, esp against the run, and they pounded and out-toughed that flashy Miami team in ways that harken back to the great Buckeye teams of yore.
