    Playing for and winning are two different things. Ask Oregon.

    Very big mistake to look past USC.

    I am hoping ND will play for the championship. Bama will win the SEC Championship, and will meet ND in Miami.

    A couple of reasons I think Bama will win it. First of all, the glare, hoopla and excitement of the biggest game of the year can put a team off kilter. Bama has been there before (recently) and will be focused. ND? Not so much.

    Second, Bama's ground game is tough enough to wear down the ND defense. Add in the balance of a good passing game, and ND loses. ND's defense is built around a couple of major stars. That works against a more one dimensional offense but not so well against a balanced attack.

    Third, the only games in which Bama had any difficulty at all were the LSU game and the Texas A&M game. LSU simply played the best game of their season, bar none. Not only did they live up to their pre-season expectations, they were trying to pay Bama back for an embarrassment in January. And LSU is far superior to BYU or Pitt. Texas A&M won that game on the shoulders of the best scrambling QB I have seen in years. Neither Tebow nor Cam were as good as this kid. He runs as well as they did and his passing is MUCH better. ND doesn't have a QB who can come close to doing that.

    And lastly, the time between the SEC Championship and the BCS Championship give Nick Saban time to put together a game plan that will be unstoppable. The last 2 years have seen Bama's bowl game opponents absolutely slaughtered.

    Roll Tide!!!

    IF ND survives at USC I think they might win it all.

    I think ND's Defense can contain 'Bama. I just don't know if ND's offense can get it done.

    Will be over by half. USC is a beaten team.

    Would be even if Barkley played.

    NDs offensive can be explosive.

    Don't worry about that.
