ROLL TIDE!!! Can't deal with a year of the ND BS that will follow if they win, and I want OSU only undefeated, and I want OSU to break sec streak next year.

I completely agree.  I currently live in "SEC country" and hate to hear them drone on and on, but an upcoming move to NJ will help me deal with it.  Roll Damn Tide...

Bruce Lee everytime.

If ESPN shows that puff piece on the city of Miami one more time I'm gonna hurl! It's not all that! I lived there, it's filled with Jersey Shore Douchebags and Haitian gangsters!

The Orange Bowl field looks nice for a change. They must have gotten lucky with the rain (or lack thereof)? 

tampa buckeye's picture

1. not the orange bowl
2. that place is a total shit hole in the middle of nowhere.  worst venue for a college national championship ever.

Knarcisi's picture

KGratz, totally agree. Having a hard time with rooting for Bama, but an optimistic outcome would be for us to be Dynasty and SEC breakers next year.

Clearly he caught the ball and it was no juggle. 1st and 10 Notre Dame!

Looks like a catch to me!

Ultrabuckeyehomer's picture

No catch there ... but this game is not over yet.  ND can settle down.  I am rooting for the midwestern team to end the streak.  As much as I hate ND, I would like to see a cold weather, midwestern team bring one home.

What?? How was that not a catch? Bs.

Brutus Greyshield's picture

ND needs to take a deep breath.

DbuckiMcG's picture

Not a ND fan, but 2 crappy calls in a row with the Eiffert non catch and the catch interference. Just makes you wonder

steensn's picture

ND getting screwed by the refs. Like Alabama needs anymore help... PI like a boss, no turnover of punt... geeez... evidently you can push a defender into your punter to ensure that you never turn the ball over on a punt. Heck, even get some yards out of it.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

That was a good call says the expert in the booth who sounds like he's from the good ol' south. 

Normal Buck's picture

I'm beyond sick of all those referee consultants.  They blew the call.  Face it!

well, this is not going as expected ... where is the vaunted ND "D"? 
bad calls or not, they should not be getting pushed all over the field like this.   Need at least a few first downs here to settle the team.  not over yet, but one more score by bama before the end of the first quarter ... too much to overcome.

They must just take turns doing the big games because I have seen some pretty good non-B1G refs during bowl season. These dudes just plain suck.

I've watched a number of Alabama games this year.  Trust me, their offense is usually not like this.

But we're they playing defenses the caliber of NDs?  Think about it...

Oh, I 100% agree with your point.  I just did not complete the full analysis.

Haha Kirk! Whistle blows and he thinks they are reviewing it to call a TD. Sorry bud, just the end of the 1st quarter...

I was actually leaning ND this game to stop the SEC crap... but I will be just as happpy with a ND complete beatdown to break their spirits and maybe remind a few recruits where they are going.

I think we would have gotten blown out. We are just not put together just yet as a team.

I think with urban as head coach (experience in titles) and the seniors they would be ready. Also herman could proabably come up with a few tricks with all of that time. We could hang with ND

One Bad Buckeye's picture

I think the guy to watch after this game isn't Gibson, Timmons or Bell.....I think it's Saban.  If Bama ends up destroying ND (which it looks to be headed that way) will Saban finally feel bored with college football?  I think that will shape the landscape of these last few weeks of recruiting. The only x-factor is, how long does Saban wait until he "declares" for the NFL?

"I'm One Bad Buckeye, and I approve this message."

Gawd I hate the SEC. How can you explain their dominance? Is a playoff going to change anything? B1G colleges need to start poaching their coaches.

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

Simple, they pay their coaches more, including their assistance. I think that some of their assistance make more than Big Ten head coaches, seriously...

BuckeyeChief's picture

can somebody get an f'in clue?
Somethings gotta shift.

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

Deshaun's picture

Yes, the Big Ten does need to try harder with its coaching hires (with the exception of Ohio St and Urban Meyer). But "SEC dominance" is a bit of a misperception. Mississippi St is not a good football team just because Alabama kicked the crap out of Notre Dame. Grantland had a pretty good article about that this fall. The whole SEC hasn't dominated college football. Urban Meyer, Les Miles, and Nick Saban have. Urban is in the Big Ten now. Now we just need the rest of the conference to follow suit and hire big time coaches instead of shooting for moderate success on a budget.

I am not ashamed to admit I am glad we are not playing Bama right now.

unknownmusketeer's picture

I completely disagree about not wanting to play this Alabama team. We would have loved to be playing in a bowl game this year, even if it was against Alabama. Our team consistently found ways to overcome each obstacle in front of us.

popeurban's picture

Don't get me wrong, I would love to be in the NCG, but not to lose to another SEC team.  I know it is better to have loved and lost, but....

Ultrabuckeyehomer's picture

of course we would love to have played in a bowl game this year.  But, yeah, we could not legitimately compete with this bama team.  It would have been worse for us than not playing. Now, I recionize and respect that many in our fan base would not have cared getting obliterated in a title game again, but some of us (me included) prefer to get there when we have an actual chance to compete.  I'm happy we are not playing bama this year.  next year and the years after, with Meyer, let's have at it. Just not this year.

btalbert25's picture

Notre Dame struggled to beat 2 of the same teams we did and blasted Michigan State who we struggled against.  Now, I know the D came around SOME in the 2nd half, but I wouldn't like our D's chances against this Bama O-Line.  We may put up a better fight simply because of how good Braxton is, but Urban didn't have the talent or speed in the trenches to hang with Bama this year.  I would like our chances next year and probably around 2014 where our skill players will be elite and we'll have so many nasty defensive players flying around, but 2012 Buckeyes woudln't beat this Bama group.  Notre Dame isn't that much different than Ohio State.  They may not have been as good as us offensively, but they were superior on D this season. 

buckeyedude's picture

I don't think we, Ohio State, had the depth that Bama has either....yet. It seemed like we were one good injured player away from losing a game this year. Would Bama have had to move a full back to the starting MLB position? Doubt it.
That depth is coming though, with Urban's excellent recruiting.

One Bad Buckeye's picture

I'd love to see a clip or two with Mark May and Urban Meyer on the set together....better yet.  I'd like to hear May interview Meyer and Meyer annihilate May wtih references to OSU's trucking of Pitt.  

"I'm One Bad Buckeye, and I approve this message."

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

Didn't Pitt just gett beat down in their irrelevant bowl game?

Manti Teo draft stock is plummeting as the clock in this game continues to run...

unknownmusketeer's picture

Serious question, Alabama Offense or Alabama Defense?
And (not serious question), would the NCAA let ND use BAMA second teamers for one game?

harleymanjax's picture

By the way they keep throwing at Milner it makes me think Brian Kelly put his life savings on Alabama!

My main question is: Does Saban want to coach in the NFL?.  If he does, Bell becomes a Buckeye

harleymanjax's picture

Saban will not go to the NFL, they have very strict limits on how many players you can sign

Notre Dame proving every criticism about them and then some.  What a pathetic showing.  They'd be better off having just lost to Pitt or Stanford.

I think Oregon would have been a much more interesting match up.

M Man's picture

Yep.  ND was by far the least-scary team that beat us this year.  We beat ourselves that night.  Six turnovers and it was 13-6 at the end.
Oregon would have been a better game.  And no doubt that OSU could roll ND in a bowl game.

I will stay with my Oregon and Alabama 1 and 2 in my fan poll.  Some of the things that were wrong in October were USC and Wisconsin, for me anyway.

D-linemen dropping like flies on ND....they need some Marriotti conditioning.  This game is getting really really embarrassing.

I'm pretty sure it's now safe to say that this game was over on Dec. 1, 2012...

Anybody else surprised the line was only 10 or so in this game?

toad1204's picture

Could they put a camera on the Bama flag girls or cheerleaders and do a little picture in picture of the game...  I'd have a reason to watch at least.
 

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Do you think Kelly wishes there was a freak hurricane to stop this game?  I don't know I could stand there an take it.  ND has zero defense.  Just pathetic.

For the first time in BCS history they had to call in the second string Bama BAND members after the first stringers were just too winded to play the fight song after another Bama TD!

Quite possibly my favorite quote of the evening (next to Kelly saying he could win if Alabama doesn't come out of the locker room after the half).

HOLY TOUCHDOWN!

We've got a ball game... Oh wait, nevermind

Saban is gonna be so pissed they didn't get a shut-out. I bet he won't even smile now when they hand him the trophy after the game.

LABuckeye's picture

How cute. Saban allowed a pity touchdown...

I really enjoy the AT&T commercials with the kids and the guy in the suit. They make me chuckle everytime

If it weren't for all the commercials the game would be over.

Notre Dame in the BCS:
2001 lost to Oregon State 41-9
2006 lost to Ohio State 34-20
2007 lost to LSU 41-14
It's like Bill Murray's "Ground Hog Day" for them!!!

You need to change the graphic on this post. Kelly should have a pillow and Saban should have a rocket launcher.

I'm not sure which is funnier - watching Notre Dame get the ever living shit kicked out of them or watch Desmond humiliate himself while Urban drills it out of the park!

Never seen a QB and a center fighting before!

The center should just let a D-lineman through next time instead of pushing his QB.

Yeah, that made this game worth watching

Wow. There's a point where you may be taking yourself way too seriously, McCarron and Saban

cinserious's picture

I have to say I love the infighting between the douchebags of alabama. Contrasts greatly with the 'family' atmosphere at OSU. Take note vonn bell and ask yourself which team you will really feel a brotherhood with.

Gone ham, be back soon...

Veraton's picture

Holy crap Nick Saban smiled.

btalbert25's picture

Hard to argue that Bama could be in the middle of the Dynasty not the end, but how much longer will Saban be this effective?  He's 61 now, and I just can't imagine he'll have the same edge for much longer.  At some point he's just going to lose that edge.  Is it next season, 2 years?  Hard to say really.  I don't know that he'll get to the Bear Bryant 6 titles. 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I dunno, Paterno did mighty well after age 61, albeit in a figurehead role much of that time. Bowden had his best seasons in his sixties. It's a matter of how long he wants to keep doing it, really.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

btalbert25's picture

That's kind of what I mean, he's got a few good seasons left, but it's not like he'll be at Bama for 25 years and dominating college football that long.  It's conceivable, IF he wants to, in 15 years Urbs could still be here coaching. 

William's picture

Exactly. Urban is quite young at 48. Forty-freaking-eight and he has two titles to Saban's four at 61. 

buckeyedude's picture

I wonder how LSU fans feel about Bama's success with their former coach? Because it's the eSEC, i think they still love him.
But watch the hatred for Urban Meyer next year, because he left the SEC.

I have a number of LSU friends.  They hate Saban.
