The Irish weren’t a unanimous choice in the coaches balloting, and they weren’t even a top 3 team in one coach’s eyes. Three voters — Middle Tennessee’s Rick Stockstill, Texas Tech’s Tommy Tuberville and Vanderbilt’s James Franklin — had Alabama as the No. 1 team in the land. That much will be settled on Jan. 7 when the Crimson Tide and Irish meet for the BCS title...
