I’ve got Notre Dame beating Alabama tonight because someone who is way smarter than me about football convinced me the Fighting Irish’s schedule made them more battle-tested for a big game.This is the place where Southeastern Conference proponents will say that’s not remotely possible because Alabama played in the SEC, best conference in all the land.It’s not only possible. It’s a fact.The perception is (and you can blame national media for adding layers to the hype) is that college teams faced inferior competition if they didn’t play in the SEC. The truth of the matter is some of the programs in the SEC are the embodiment of the old gray mare ain’t what she used to be. Conclusion: Not everybody from a tough neighborhood is tough. Victims live there,Chanel bags, too.Alabama played four road games (all in the SEC) this season. Only one of them came against a team (LSU) that finished the season with a winning record.Five of Bama’s SEC victories came against teams that failed to finish the season with a winning record. That means you, Tennessee, Arkansas,Burberry Outlet, Mississippi, Missouri and Auburn.You can tell me they wound up in that predicament by feeding me the company line that they beat up on each other in league play. But I’ll tell you that’s no excuse because the SEC (like the Big 12) plays next to no one in non-conference games, so league members still had every chance to win enough games to post credible records.Give the Crimson Tide credit for playing a neutral-site game against Michigan. But the Tide also played three teams -- Western Kentucky, Florida Atlantic and Western Carolina -- that you won’t find on Notre Dame’s schedule, probably ever.You can play a more grueling schedule than an SEC team without competing in the SEC and Notre Dame proved it,p90x dvd, both from a competition and travel standpoint.Notre Dame survived a schedule that began with a tough commute to Dublin, Ireland, to face Navy. Anybody else want to make that trip and then turn around and play a game seven days later?The Fighting Irish also played road or neutral-site games against Michigan State, Miami, Oklahoma, Boston College and USC. Home games came against Purdue,Chanel bags, Michigan, Stanford,http://www.p90xdvdrose.com/, BYU, Pittsburgh and Wake Forest. With the exception of Boston College and Wake Forest, every one of the Irish’s opponents ended the season with a bowl trip or a winning record.From a talent standpoint,http://www.longchamppascherroses.com/, I don’t think Notre Dame is better than Alabama. From a scheduling standpoint, the Irish is better prepared for the challenge.
Then again, perhaps Patrick doesn’t realise quite what I skillful driver I am. This is one of the boys, after all, who has driven me to distraction over the years,ghd, squabbling with his brothers, demanding I look round to witness some misdemeanour, even leaping into the front to change the radio station while I am trying to drive.
Like the phrase "We are the 99 percent" which has become a unifying slogan for the Occupy Wall Street movement, "People first" can become a unifying slogan for the 18th Party Congress.
