    In 1993 - When #1 Notre Dame makes a great comeback against Boston College, take s the lead , then on BCs final drive - PETE BERCICH drops a chinch intercept - and BC goes on to score a final second FG.

    Ever since - ND has been a struggling team instead of a top 5 team .

    Joe Montana threw an easy interception that bounced off the Bengals #25 (I think) in the Super Bowl that prolly would have clinched it. Joe's next pass was for the winner. That's how the ball bounces.

    I remember watching that in my dorm room on a Monday morning at Osan AB Korea after having worked a night shift.

    The best nonplay in CF was the strip by George Teague in the 1993 Sugar Bowl.

    Lamar Thomas, Miami WR, had talked smack all week about how superior the Miami receivers were and questioned the manhood of the Alabama secondary

    Torreta hit Thomas on the outside and it looked like Thomas (also a track star) was going for an 89 yard touchdown. Until DB George Teague ran him down and took the ball away from him like Thomas was a little kid on the big kid's playground.

    A penalty negated the play. But it was the straw that broke the camel's back, and Miami was beaten. They were completely demoralized. Not that they stood much of a chance against that defense anyway.

    Yep, we lost back to back bowl games to Notre Dame. The bowl games at the end of the '73 and '74 seasons. Vietnam was still being fought back then too.

    But here in the present, Notre dame hasn't been relevant in how long?

    ND's last National Championship was in 1988. The Crimson Tide have won 3 of them since then. I guess if Bama was nothing back in '73 and '74, Notre Dame has been nothing for better than 20 years.

    History is all Notre Dame has.

    But speaking of history and QBs, ask Steve Beuerlein about Alabama's defense. He was a 5th year senior and said he had never been hit that hard.

    Alabama, unlike ND, has a Crystal Football trophy from last season. Oh, and another from 2 seasons before that. And another National Championship trophy that we won before those two, but since ND won their last championship.
