    Who ya got?!
    #1 Alabama vs #4 Oklahoma
    #2 Clemson vs #3 Notre Dame

    I say its an Oklahoma vs Notre Dame championship.

    Yesterday showed when Alabama is forced to play a REAL team they struggle especially when the defense gets after their QB.
    Yesterday showed Clemson struggling against a self destructive Pitt team who hung around in the first half despite TONS of penalties!

    I think Oklahoma's QB and Receivers are better and I think Notre Dame is much more physical and faster on defense than Clemson's.

    GO IRISH!

    Funny, Alabama didn't have any issues beating LSU, MS State or auburn.
    And as for playing a defense that gets after our QB, Oklahoma's defense has barely shown a pulse all year.
    And, historically, Nick Saban has his teams playing at the highest level when given the amount of time they will have.

    As for Notre Dame beating Clemson, I don't think that will happen either. Clemson beat Pitt by 32 points. Notre Dame beat Pitt by 5 points.

    It will be Bama vs Clemson for the championship.

    But Georgia SHOULD have beat Alabama if not for a collapse in the 4th quarter and a HORRIBLE fake punt call...what did Georgia do differently that no one else did to Alabama? Yes Clemson beat Pitt by more but Pitt was hanging around in the first half that's with their self destructive penalties,Notre Dame plays Pitt the week of midterms which if you watch enough ND football you see a theme with that week every season. I don't it matters how much or how little you beat someone I think it matters how the game was played in general and Clemson looked rough with Pitt...plus with them having a freshman QB it will be easy to rattle him...I am looking forward to it. Plus same could be said for Clemson vs Syracuse they BARELY beat them we held them to a Field Goal.

    Georgia played man to man.........with a floating safety who picked 2 passes off...........and the blitzed blitzed blitzed........Most teams playing man for man don't stay on Alabama's receivers that well...........they didn't break down til the 4th............Hurts came in more mobile than TUA and burned them..............

    Oklahoma defense sucks..........They will not take Alabama............

    It will be Clemson versus Alabama.

    Clemson's defensive line will keep Notre Dame's offense running for its life. Their secondary will feast on hurried passes.

    We'll see but I think you are wrong. If it was that idiot backup QB of ours yes absolutely he couldn't hit the side of a barn if he was leaning against it but Book is a hell of a passer and a better runner.

    Don't know how the game will play out.....that's why they play the games. I plan on having plenty of Dr. Pepper and wings on hand.

    After what Ohio State did to Michigan's defense I believe they could whip any of the other 4 teams, maybe all on the same day. That was other-worldly.
