After much research, I have found indisputable proof that neither Alabama and Notre Dame are championship caliber programs. They "hit their ceiling" long ago, it would seem. Here is the evidence:
A. Alabama lost a game at home in which they entered the game as 13 point favorites. In fact, one might say they were dominated.
2. Alabama was only up on Western Kentucky 21-0 at halftime during their game on September 8, 2012. With the amazing recruiting advantage they have over the Hilltoppers, they should have been up by at least 50 points. Obviously, the Crimson Tide cannot fully develop their talent.
D. Against Tennessee, the almighty UofA amassed 536 total yards of offense, but to most it just "didn't look purty." In fact, it looked "disjointed" and "haphazard."
Fail. Overall, the Tide rely entirely too much on their defense. Its ridiculous to think that they should play towards their team strength. They should score tons of point throwing the ball around, especially in the fourth quarter after the game is in hand.
A. The Irish needed 3OT just to beat Pitt, a team that lost to Youngstown State. The Irish are just a step above 1AA patsies.
2. Notre Dame has out-recruited Boston College by leaps and bounds over the last few years, but they were only up by 14 at halftime. They clearly have squandered the talent they have all over the field. Also think about this: Notre Dame didn't score a single point against BC in the fourth quarter. Pathetic!
D. The Irish could barely beat a USC team without their starting quarterback. In fact, they only won by 8 points. That USC team just lost to a "below .500" Georgia Tech by 14 points. Obviously, Notre Dame would probably lose to GT by two field goals.
Turrible. The Irish rely on their defense because it is the strength of their team. This makes them weak.
I hope you can all clearly see the pathetic wastes that these two teams are. They are in over their heads and will probably sink into oblivion if they stay on their present course. My logic is undeniable.
