Alabama 1-5 vs Notre Dame, 0-2 in bowls

Posted: 12/4/2012 8:59 AM

Alabama 1-5 vs Notre Dame, 0-2 in bowls 


All we heard was our record against SEC schools in bowl games before we beat Arkansas, has anyone in the media mentioned Alabama's failure against Notre Dame?

For the record, I don't think it is at all relevant, but I didn't find our history to be relevant either.
1987/11/14  Alabama       6  -  Notre Dame   37 L 1986/10/04  Alabama      28  -  Notre Dame   10 W 1980/11/15  Alabama       0  -  Notre Dame    7 L 1976/11/13  Alabama      18  -  Notre Dame   21 L 1975/01/01  Alabama      11  -  Notre Dame   13 L    !! Orange Bowl !!1973/12/31  Alabama      23  -  Notre Dame   24 L    !! Sugar Bowl !!    
The views expressed here, are solely my own, well, most of the time.

We haven't played them in a bowl game since 1974 season. Not hardly relevant.

Agree, not relevant at all, nor was it relevant when we heard all the SEC crap.  Alabama is 1-5 against Notre Dame and those games will have no bearing on this one.  My point is the media chooses these kind of stats and uses them to bash who they want to bash.

Re: Alabama has never beat Notre Dame in a bowl game 


Will not matter this year, Notre Dame has not faced athletes and depth with explosive athletes like Bama has all year.
You saw ND struggle to beat Michigan at home, and UofM had 6 TO's.
Bama had a controlled scrimmage in the second half with Michigan and could have scored 50 or more.
ND was lucky to get by hapless Pitt, BYU, Purdue and Stanford, no way they beat Georgia on a nuetral field like Bama did.
Bama rolls by 2 TD's or more, this will be like an 11-1 MSU team that faced Bama two years ago and got crushed in a big bowl, MSU had not seen those type of kids all year and could not simulate them.
Notre Dame will have the same issue and get beaten going away in the 4th quarter.
Saban with a month to plan vs. Kelly, big mismatch as well for the Tide.

And you never heard a fen’ word back in 2009 about Alabama never beating Texas . Prior to that championship game they were 0-7-1 against Texas . Even the great “BARE”  was 0-3-1.tongue

I really have no problem with Bama, other than their in the fen' sec. Only school I ever rooted for from the sec other than Tennessee(in any OOC games) had an old neighbor who played for Tenn.

You over estimated the reading comprehension of the posters on this site.

I will try to get back on topic for you. Yes I agree there is biased opinions given by the media, especially ESPN.

I honestly think there has been a power struggle going on behind closed doors for many years. Who started it I don't know but I think that is why ESPN signed the deal with the SEC. So it only makes sense for ESPN to have a SEC biased opinion.
I hope this power struggle doesn't ruin college football. I for one can't hardly stand to watch ESPN anymore. The way they glorify the SEC gives them a recruiting advantage also. Dammit! Now I'm getting off topic

The statistics are what they are.  Relevant?  Not to the upcoming game.  Interesting?  Somewhat.

The 0-9 figure was only notable because it was Ohio State.  Had say Illinois been 0-9 in bowl games against whomever, no one would care.

I hate all over generalizations.

Re: Alabama 1-5 vs Notre Dame, 0-2 in bowls 


Notre Dame back 30 years ago with these references, talent wise stacked up  with Bama, there was no balance like there is in college football now and the 85 man scholly limit brought parody.
Give Notre Dame Bama's schedule this year, and they at least have 2 losses for sure, Georgia on a nuetral field and at LSU.
Notre Dame snuck by Michigan at home under the lights and 6 UofM TO's, on a nuetral field UofM could have beat Notre Dame.  Bama date raped Michigan.
Does Notre Dame beat Texas A&M, I say no.
This Bama and Nick Saban is way more talented, way more physically gifted and faced way more tougher competition in the right here right now.
Alabama beats Notre Dame by at least two TD's.
Gholson will be running for his life, and the passing lanes will be shut down.

While I don't care either way which team wins, 79's statement pretty much summarizes the matchup between OSU & Miami. How did that turn out for the underdog?

Forget about the check, we'll get hell to pay. Have a drink on me.

You saw ND struggle to beat Michigan at home, and UofM had 6 TO's.
Bama had a controlled scrimmage in the second half with Michigan and could have scored 50 or more.Yes, and the Mich coaches thought Denard was a drop back passer.  Gardner should have been their QB from day one if they wanted to play the Drop back game.   
ND was lucky to get by hapless Pitt, BYU, Purdue and Stanford, no way they beat Georgia on a nuetral field like Bama did.Tell me one team with a 11 wins didn't have several close games.  Besides A&M who did Bama play that was so good.  And A&M beat them at Bama.
Bama rolls by 2 TD's or more, this will be like an 11-1 MSU team that faced Bama two years ago and got crushed in a big bowl, MSU had not seen those type of kids all year and could not simulate them.ince when has MSU had an offense??
Notre Dame will have the same issue and get beaten going away in the 4th quarter.
Saban with a month to plan vs. Kelly, big mismatch as well for the Tide.Kelly can coach and has proved it every place he coached.  ND def Line will play Bama even and if Bama can't run what will they do??  ND, one of the best front 7s in college football, much better than Ga.  ND has a solid OLine and their RBs are fast and tough.  This will be a game decided in the last 2 minutes and expect the Irish to end the SEC run.

Re: Alabama has never beat Notre Dame in a bowl game 


The Big Ten had a tremendous winning bowl season before the OSU vs. Miami game, and OSU had big wins OOC vs. Pac 12 champ Washington State, a 9 win Texas Tech, and top 10 teams Michigan and Penn State.
Wisconsin (beat Colorado), Purdue (beat Washington) and Michigan (beat Florida I think) all had nice bowl wins, justifying a pretty good Big Ten.  Iowa went 11-1 as well.
Comparing a Nick Saban coached team with a month to prepare vs. a clown like Larry Coker at Miami is your first huge mistake.
Yes, Miami looked daunting, but playing in a crap Big East and beating up those chump teams before Miami defected to the ACC, where by the way, better competition has set them back since joining the ACC, and comparing to Alabama winning at LSU, beating Georgia on a nuetral field, playing Texas A&M and those other SEC teams, plus Michigan on a nuetral field is a stretch.
The Big East is usually cannon fodder in Bowl games, and as great as Miami was, their fall from grace starting to play better teams in the ACC like Clemson, North Carolina, Georgia Tech (went to two BCS bowls recently), and those types sure has to do with getting out of a pathetic Big East they Canes ruled with ease.   Add FSU and Va Tech every year as well.
Even NC State had some good ranked teams under Amato and O'Brien, Miami plundering while joining a tougher conference was no coincedence.
How mighty has Miami been post the Big East defection and a lot easier schedule?

Right here.

I can tell you that this stat is not one that is lost on any Bama fan. A better thing to use is this -- 1966/1973/1977

Maybe between now and January 7th, you guys can trot those three years out day after day.

That isn't nearly as entertaining to me, however, as it is when OSUVB and some of you guys trot out total wins or conference championships or some other such stat to establish Ohio State as an "all-timer". My son is 16 and he has seen as many national championships from Bama as any Ohio State fan that is 50 has seen. Now THERE is a stat.

Other than LSU and Georgia they didn't play squat crap!! 
Four!!! fen' 4, teams (beat 3) with winning records amongst all those explosive fen fast southern boys!

That’s a great stat, I’m glad you brought it to our attention.

I don't know, if ND can beat them, but don't fen over do it with why they won't!!!
