    Syracuse, back from the dead even in the Big East over the last four years and winner of the Pinstripe Bowl over West Virginia (and the vaunted Geno Smith) this year, just lost the engineer of their resurrection, head coach Doug Marrone, to the NFL's Buffalo Bills where he'll take over as head coach from the fired Chan Gailey. Good news for the Bills, NOT so good news for the Orange.

    Oh, yeah, tonight's the night for the big BCS bash. I'm rooting for ND simply because I hate Nick Saban.

    I am rooting for injuries. I probably won't even watch the game. I hardly watched last years 1 vs 3 SEC title game/National Championship.

    Oh no, this one is worth staying up for! I support any team/conference that humiliates ND.

    I second that. I'll probably watch the 2nd half just to see the Irish lose. Any chance that both teams can double their score?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Notre Dame didn't belong in this game to begin with.

    FWIW this is the 2nd year in a row I correctly predicted Alabama as national champs on here.

    I was rooting for the Catholics, but I respect the excellent game plated by the Rolling Tide. Good job Alabama.

    Five freaking yards from being National Champions.

    Oh, and congrats to 'Bama for taking care of bidness.

    Nick Saban is a horrible person, but an insanely good recruiter and coach. Congrats to the SEC.... again.


    I like the future though, as this year it was pretty clear the SEC wasn't the same as it has been in the past. Let the trash talking for 2013 begin!

    Also, I did want to note that there was only one undefeated team in college football this year.... now who could that be?

    Now the undefeated teams of ND vs OSU might have been a more competitive game, but there is no way in hell either team was better than 'Bama. It would have been a travesty if one those soft schedule teams had won the BCS Championship.

    Let's see,....Final AP Poll says 3 of the Top 5, 5 of the Top Ten and 7 in the Top 25 are from the SEC. That's nearly half or the whole conference!

    This keeps up, they might as well just count the SEC conference championship game as the National Title Game.

    I'm pulling for Michigan to move to the SEC. I saw how much better A&M got when they moved from the Big 12.

    This year Georgia was the defacto loser. I think that is pretty clear....

    AP can't even get it close to right after the season! Best argument for a play-off yet.
