TUSCALOOSA, AL - OCTOBER 16: Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide against the Ole Miss Rebels at Bryant-Denny Stadium on October 16, 2010 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)
Those of you who were tuning in last night expecting a close competitive game at least got a quick notice that it was not to be. Nick Saban's Crimson Tide came out and took the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to woodshed, and by the end of the half, the game was for all intents and purposes, over. Eddie Lacy, the game MVP ran all over the place, rushing for 140 yards on 20 carriers that included 1 rushing TD and one TD reception. QB AJ McCarron had good numbers in his own right, going 20 of 28 for 264 yards and four touchdowns in the rout. Another year, another BCS laugher. "We've had a lot of really great football players who've worked really hard," Saban said via ESPN. "Because we've had a great team, we've been able to have a significant amount of success." After the game, Alabama was voted no. 1 by the AP, followed by Oregon. Notre Dame, no. 1 before the game, plummeted down to the 4 spot. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • I LOVE that kelly and the Irish were embarrassed by Alabama lastnight. Ever since kelly insisted that one of his practices still be recorded from a dangerous scissor stand 50 feet off the ground in dangerously high winds which resulted in the death of Declan Sullivan, I have wanted to see him fail. He cares more about his precious football program than the life of a human being. I wasn't too pleased with Notre Dames choice of kelly to begin with considering how he left the Cincinnatti Bearcats. The man is a liar since he told his players in Cincinnatti that IF he took a new gig they would hear it from him first. They instead heard it on Sportscenter because he just up and left without telling his players anything, what a creep. Then there was the way he treated players on the sidelines whenever they made a mistake...his venom was on display for all to see. This past season he obviously had his wings clipped where that's concerned but he is still a liar and because of his selfishness a family lost their son. Screw kelly, I hope he NEVER wins a National Championship...and it should be important to note that I have been an Irish fan for many years. But until he sneaks away to another team either in the NCAA or the pros I can not root for them anymore. Still Love the Irish but on principle alone I can't root for kelly. Roll Tide....and thanks for not only beating kelly's ass but embarrassing his team in the process.
  • Everybody knew the Irish couldn't hang with Bama. Besides the only reason they were there was because the Buckeyes were still on suspension. Notice who was the guest analyst after the game?..Urban Meyer, head coach of OH.ST. This was kellys' shot and he blew it. You wont be seing ND as #1 anytime again soon. That rating was strictly to promote the champ game, and then ND didnt even show up. Kinda backfired on NCAA.
