I've been saying that for years now. The SEC title game has become the national title game, except for last year.
I live is SEC country so I would prefer ND but I think Alabama gets it's second crown in a row.
ND is going to win the national title this year. I don't care who they send.

Years sounds like an exaggeration. Let's just say the last 30 reincarnations of yourself and leave it at that.
ND without. I am already fed up with the SEC. Yes, admittedly they play great ball but at this point their rep proceeds overall performance on the field.
I'm with you. And as far as sick of hearing about the SEC speed, and SEC defense, I tend to think about the SEC IQ, and it makes me feel better! I can't stand the thought of ND being the first team to break the SEC record. We will NEVER hear the end of that one either. GO SUC!!
Tough Call If ND loses then tOSU is then the ONLY undefeated team in the Land. Better chance to WIN AP NC or Others, like the MacArthur trophy and/or the Grantland Rice trophies can still be won by tOSU. Butttttt I Really starting to HATE the SEC, and wouldn't mind it one tiny bit if ND BLOWS them out. I strongly feel they are OVERRATED and Over HYPED by ESPiN way too much.
ND unfortunately is the team that has to take the power back.

I hate ND and the sec.
I do think Bama beats ga pretty good. Ga offense plays right into what the Bama defense does so well.
ND could give Bama some problems on offense but I don't see ND defense stopping the Bama offense with Saban having so much time to prepare.
dam I got indigestion thinking bout that 1,,,,,If ND loses then we are only undefeated team in the country sooooo,,,
It will never happen though. The love affair with the SEC is so strong. Each AP voter would be fighting to get in line to kiss Nick Saban at the kissing booth......Now if it were Mark Richt?????????? Guessing there would be a line like Black Friday also.
True but tOSU should get a few #1 votes, and even if they get shafted by the AP could still win the MacArthur and/or the Grantland Rice National Champion trophies. anything is possible.
But agree ONLy if Bulldogs WIN out..
I have lived in Atlanta the last 15 1/2 years. I agree with the above poster.
And I married a girl from Bama.
I'm voting against ND
This is easy and for me and not even close: I DON'T want the $EC to win a 7th title period!
Say what you will about ND but the fact is they're still one of the all-time great football programs that has gone nearly a quarter of a century without a national title.
Plus it just so happens that this will mark the first time in five years when a northern school will face off vs one from the $EC. We've been the lone northern rep in BC$ title games vs TCDS (That Conference Down South) and it's going to take someone--if not us, someone to assist us in ending this streak of dominance.
I think every B1G and Buckeye fan should root on ND in the title game.
I'd been thinking about that...an ND win would be good for Midwestern football.
I think the SEC is due to lose and ND is a pretty decent team.
As a buckeye fan, I do not ever want to see another buckeye fan say "roll tide" or "go Irish" ever again. Please, just don't do it ever again.
But, when it comes to the NCG, I want the SEC to lose no matter what. All they talk about down there is how the south is god almighty when it comes to football. I talked to my cousin in Florida a few days ago and he asked me what a buckeye was and looked at me as if I was inferior.
I hate notre lame but I want to see college football elite shift back towards the north. I'm not going to say "go Irish".... But I want the SEC to lose sooooo bad.
seeing posters say Roll Tide almost made me sick. Im tired of all the "$EC is almighty and every other conference is soooo far behind" bs. I hate Notre Shame but its good for college football to see them win a title against a $EC team and put them, and ESPN back in their place. IMO id much rather hear ND is back! for a whole year, rather than the SEC is the greatest thing ever.

I am right there with you. Great post Sugar. TCDS wins another title, then we will hear another 365 days of how dominate they are. Please NO.
Have to root for the Irish on this one. I take that back, I am not going to root for anyone, Probably not going to watch it just like last year.
I cannot take listening to the "Finebaum" show and hearing those trailer trash SEC fans run their mouths. I live in Virginia, it is bad enough to hear ACC fans try to defend their conference but somehow they seem to take pride in the fact that the SEC is so dominant. I am NOT a domer fan at all but I hope they kick the shit out of Alabama. The crawdad eatin doublewide livin idiots down there will set their hair on fire if that happens. I will love every minute of it. Nd has a few Ohio kids on their team and I would love to get a crack at them next year for all the marbles. I attended the VA. Tech. /Florida State game this year with a buddy who is an alumn. and booster for Tech. I always have my Buckeye stuff on and fans were giving me some serious shit down there. They couldn't say anything about the ACC but they ran their mouths about the SEC like it was their conference. Fuck the SEC ! I hope ND kicks their ass!!! ( A previous poster did make a good observation though, Mark Richt is a first class man ) Richt is the only classy thing about that conference.
I don't care if they win or not but thank God ND is in the game. I can't think of any thing more lame for college football then to have two stright years in which the SEC champion was matched against an also ran from the SEC who didn't even qualify to play in the SEC championship game. I don't care if Alabama won last years game by 100 points they had no business being in it. Thankfully the BCS is almost history and the era of having popularity contests conducted by sports writers and who ever fills out the coaches ballots deciding who plays for the championship will hopefully be gone forever.
Indeed! Had ND lost to USC, Alabama, UGA and Florida would have been 1-2-3 in the BCS, which would have put Florida in the NC against the winner of Alabama-UGA.
