I am already dreading the movie that will surely be made about Notre Dame if it beats Alabama on Monday night in the BCS title game. In these Notre Dame movies, literary license means pouring on the sweetener until it's pure sap.
There will be the touching moment in the Pittsburgh game when coach Brian Kelly (played by Jack Black or the pudgy guy on Modern Family) sagely takes young quarterback Everett Golson out of the game in a teaching moment.
Golson looks lost on the sideline. But then, with the game slipping away, Kelly wisely puts Golson back in. Golson completes the big pass and wins in triple overtime. It was the moment that Golson became a man, the moment Notre Dame knew its magic was back.
That actually isn't far from how the moment is already being portrayed by the media and by Kelly himself. It is the moment that supposedly turned Golson into a star quarterback. The truth is that Kelly wasn't looking to teach, but only to get a failing QB out of the game. ...

Can Manti Te’o lead the Irish to their first National Championship since 1988?
This is the moment Notre Dame football fans, alumni, players, and students have been waiting for. 24 years since Lou Holtz won the Irish’s last National Championship, and here they stand once again, on the verge of their official Return to Glory in the BCS National Championship Game against Nick Saban...
When Everett Golson sees a piano, he usually sits down and starts entertaining. He plays several instruments, keeps a keyboard in his room and loves to sing.
Music is a huge part of his life, perhaps only topped by basketball.
And in Golson's spare time, he plays quarterback for Notre Dame.
''He's pretty good at his hobby,'' Notre Dame offensive coordinator...
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Everett Golson lacks the catchy nickname and Heisman Trophy of fellow redshirt freshman Johnny Manziel.
But in terms of style, Golson resembles the only quarterback to defeat Alabama this season athletic, quick, a strong arm, ability to scramble.
There are a lot of similarities, said Crimson Tide coordinator Kirby Smart, whose defense was frustrated by Johnny...
NOTEBOOK: After Texas A&M's scrambler Johnny Manziel got the best of Alabama, the Crimson Tide has vowed to make sure that they don't make the same mistakes against Notre Dame's mobile quarterback Everett Golson.
We could go in a lot of different directions in the lead-up to Monday night’s BCS National Championship Game here at Crystal Ball Run. We could talk about the battle in the trenches between Alabama’s offensive line and Notre Dame’s defensive line or how Nick Saban plans on to defend Irish quarterback Everett Golson.
The problem is you don’t want to talk about any of...
#1 Notre Dame (12-0) v. #2 Alabama (12-1)
The BCS National Championship Game
Sun Life Stadium - Miami, FL - 8:00 PM EST on ESPN
This is really going to happen. Irish fans have wallowed in and out of sincere doubt for years over whether this opportunity for a championship would ever come again. The university's balance between academics and elite football in...
(Eds: Adds details. With AP Photos.) By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer Luck of the Irish.
For starters, it's a misleading phrase, in that most historians would tell you Irish luck is not necessarily a good thing. No matter - No. 1 Notre Dame enjoyed its share of fortunate breaks on its way to the BCS title game, with perhaps the bulk of those coming during a wild, wacky, marathon...
Welcome to the Anti-Preview on Subway Domer! Friends, I'm going to cut through the ********. This post was already written and then lost (always the ******* Anti-Preview) so I'm going to fly through this like a boss. Don't worry, don't worry... the good stuff will still be in here. For more blah, blah, blah, there will be an article in Huffington Post soon.
Tonight, the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame will attempt to prove that their 12-0 record and No. 1 rankings are no fluke against what could be the makings of a dynasty in the second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.
WHAT: BCS National Championship game
WHO: Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Alabama Crimson Tide
