Alabama or Norte Dame?

Who are you rooting for, who do you think will win, and why?

Comments

I am rooting for a hurricane or earthquake as tonight's game will be the largest assembly of obnoxious sidewalk alumni in the history of sports.

This post has been sanitized with sarcasm for your protection.

Remember the scene from The Dark Knight Rises with the football field crumbling? Yeah that needs to happen. Although I do hear that fans should bring an umbrella or rain jacket due to Lou Holtz being in attendance tonight.

Granny Holtz will probably break his hip before the game...

Let's hope. Should ND win, I believe he might die from excitement...or from drowning himself in his own saliva

DKR

Just finally saw it last week and would have to say that would be the best outcome for this game.

I wish they could both lose

The REAL question

Is which will be the greater sum, Bama's points or McCarron's shoe collection

I've got my money on him crying again.

don't like either but i'm tired of seeing bama win all the time

... so i'm going for the domers

... but i think bama wins by 10 (20-10)

What is worse Alabama fans capturing their third national championship in four years or Notre Dame fans who have been chomping at the bit to show their Irish pride for the last 25 years?

I vote the Notre Dame fans and for that reason alone I hope that Alabama wins. Also, if they win hopefully Saban leaves which will set the stage for the biggest upset in Virginia Tech's history #BEATBAMA

These people are losing their minds!

Alabama because I hate Notre Dame fans and I want to play against the defending national champs in Atlanta.

I think Bama wins pretty easily.

Rip his freaking head off!

I can (kind of) stomach Alabama fans because the team has actually earned it. When Alabama was struggling in the late 90s/early 2000s, you really didn't hear the arrogance from them as we have from ND fans over the last 20 years. I cannot imagine how annoying they'd be if ND won.

Gotta go with Bama

Notre Dame is much more annoying than the SEC winning its 43rd consecutive championship.

Plus, it will be much more gratifying to knock off the defending national champion when we #BEATBAMA

I think I actually dislike Bama more these days.

ND just isn't the hate vessel they used to be to me anymore. Which is shocking, because I do not like Brian Kelly at all. Maybe it is some fundamental appreciation of how they played this year....which is to say...Beamerball at its best. Watch Everett Golston and tell me that's not Tyrod Taylor......

There is an interesting angle to this game tonight: future NFL Hall of Famer Nick Saban's last college game! Yay!

Bama will win by 15+

ND is Duke, Bama is UNC

Both are extremely hated, but Duke is Duke. And everyone really hates Duke because they are really big bitches.

#Analysis

This is like picking between Nazi Germany and the USSR. As a staunch southern advocate I might alter every bit of my history and root for the domers for two reasons:

1. Go ACC (sort of)
2. If ND wins they'll be the only team in history to have won the National Championship and
have the highest graduation rate. That is the type of team I'd rather have on the top than the likes of the $EC. Even if their fans are unbearable.

Plus I have Team SEC fatigue

#ALLMAROONEVERYTHING

Why do people value graduation rates?

When you take a group of students with below average admissions metrics, why do we celebrate how many of them graduate? Shouldn't it be harder to graduate from your school, not easier?

You can argue that or you just look at the alternative. Team $EC.

Awesome Metaphor

Neither?

What do I dislike more, Nonstop SEC love or random bandwagon fans??

I guess I'm just gonna root against SEC tonight...

WHY COULDN'T OREGON OR KANSAS ST WIN OUT?!

im just real sick of the sec i just can't bring myself to pull for bama

tyrod did it mikey! tyrod did it!

Im rooting

for a good game I love bowl season but a lot of the games have been boring this year

UVA: Jefferson's biggest mistake

@pbowman6

Roll Tide

if even one player leaves early because they win the national championship, it's worth it for them to win

@seanhoganvt

Lou Holtz is awful.

I just don't want to hear Lou Holtz blathering on about Notre Dame. I want them to lose purely because of how annoying that man is... And I want them to be getting rocked the whole game so I don't have to hear him at halftime either....

Bama has at least earned their moon-sized egos...

Hokies.

Gotta go for

the Dark Lord Saban....can't stand ND...didn't like Brian Kelly when he was at UC, either. On the positive side, if Bama wins, the possibility of seeing more of A.J. McCarron's mom goes up.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

Even Better

A.J.'s girlfriend

I'm here for the memes, I just stay for the football.

Yeah,

I forgot about that....her too!

Can we get an interview with Johnny Football tonight (with model/girlfriend on arm)?

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

Well that solidifies my choice of Alabama to win. They clearly have the confidence.

Rip his freaking head off!

Nick Saban's daughter...

Screw the rings, I'm sure this is all he has to show to his recruits

It's not Nick Saban's daughter

There are two Kristen Sabans and one looks like that, and the other is Saban's daughter.

Here's why:

Let's say ND wins tonight. Well, the aging sportswriters of this great land will surely fire up a massive circle-jerk for the potential to have ND and resurgent tOSU in the National Championship next season. Their 1960s midwest-biased collective stroke session will last deep into the season whereupon ND will lose to a shitty opponent (Air Force sounds like a likely candidate). However, because they'll win out against powerhouse football schools Navy, Pitt, BYU, and Stanford, the Kornheisers of the USofA will do all in their power to put ND in the National Championship game again...this time against Corch Urbans Meyers'ss (Corrine Brown reference) the Ohio State University.

THIS CANNOT HAPPEN.

You know

the press is salivating to have a ND offseason lovefest. I can't stand ND.

Rather have that

than another SEC vs SEC title game, which could be likely if Alabama wipes the floor with Notre Dame proving that no one else other than SEC teams belong in the title game.

AJ McCarron's chest tat...

will be the sole reason I root for the domers tonight.

its just ridiculous...

Now if a tat like that

gets him a lady like that (see pic above), I might consider getting a tattoo

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

I wouldn't be so sure it's a tat...

Now, if you went back to college, became a starting quarterback and won a couple national championships, that might help a bit.

AJ McCarron can work miracles.

He makes me feel sorry for Phillip Sims. What a douche.

holy crap, yup pulling for nd

tyrod did it mikey! tyrod did it!

I'm rooting for Bama.

  1. I want to beat the two-time defending national champions in Atlanta.
  2. I think Alabama will lose underclassmen, possibly Saban if they repeat, making our game more manageable.
  3. Bama fans can't get much worse, Domers haven't even come out of the woodwork yet.

the thought of Brent Musburger

gushing over ND makes me wanna puke. I hope 'Bama hangs 70 on them, can't stand the whole old school entitlement aura...this is America, at least the Tide isn't resting on their laurels and have kicked serious ass in recent memory. They might reek of arrogance, but it ain't braggin if it's true.

"Rule #9: Calling a touchdown before the player actually scores. For example, during an interception return, Brent says "It's a touchdown!" before the player actually scores. In this case, everyone must start drinking and continue to drink until the player actually does score. If by some odd event, the player does NOT score, everyone must finish their drink."

i think bama will take it but i want notre dame to win.

it all boils down to me being sick of the sec.

its gotten out of hand

i agree with much of the anti-nd stuff above but that's how bad it's gotten for me. i will root for nd before the sec.

Low mother fuckin pride

Fuck bama, fuck the sec. Shit is getting quite old. I'm sick of the sec. If nd wins they won repeat agian next season so I can handle it for the offseason. And I want to beat Sabah and all those blue choppers our way to prove they ain't shit.

Go Bama, so we can upset them in August. I never liked ND, and hate the deal they got with the ACC.

I wise man once told me that

A wise man once told me that in games like this (where you don't really want to see either team win), root for the Iranian Nuclear program. I guess I'll reluctantly cheer for Bama, because their fans will be quieted on August 31st. ND fans would be insufferable for the next 25 years.

Not the bagman VT deserves, but the bagman VT needs right now.

Bama, because most Notre Dame fans don't even know what state its in

Well lets be honest, most Bama fans wouldn't know that either if it weren't in their name.

@seanhoganvt

Gotta Root for the Golden Domers

I hate the SEC. They have had the best football conference in college footaball for at least the last five years. They have won the last 7 national titles and I hate that I have to turn the CBS and listen to two senile old farts jerk off to Nick Saban and Les Miles every time I want to watch a good football matchup.

But this bowl season the SEC has had a chip taken off it's pedistal for the first time in a long time. LSU loses to Clemson (#goacc), Florida loses to Louisville (#goacc), SC is one play away from losing to Michigan (serves those blue sonsabitches right), and UGA was in a dog fight when they were heavy favorites.

Bama losing to ND would be a huge slap in the face in the eyes of SEC fans, they can no longer waive their national title grip in our face, they have to start realizing that their reign may be coming to an end and other schools are catching up.

I hate both teams so I'm not gonna lose sleep either way. I will say though, that if Bama is gonna win, I hope they blow ND out of the water so the fair-weather ND fans can go back into hiding for now.

I HATE both teams. I want Bama to win, though, just because they will be all everyone talks about all offseason and then WE WILL WIN.

I love Virginia Tech, regardless of the outcome of every game.

ROot for both to lose. hate ND, Kely is a douche

but I am tired of the SEC and ready for some new blood. Who do i think will win, I think it will be a tough 1st half, but Bama blows it open in the 2nd half. Bama has a tough D, same as ND, but Bama has a much better ground game and a good QB.

Correy

my heart says ND but my gut tells me for us to become god of college football we need to beat the back to back defending national title champ... very conflicting

Hate both so no real rooting interest. Guess I dislike Kelly more than Saban though.

wow watching this game is worse than a double pass when your down 31-17

This Game

is embarrassing if youre a ND fan. I really hope Bama shuts ND out, then we crush them in August.

BEAT BAMA!!!!!!!!!!

tyrod did it mikey! tyrod did it!

I think Pep's asking price just went up!

We're going him !!

We put the K in Kwality

Bama's O-line

This has got to be the best game ever played by an offensive line in a national championship game.The holes for lacy and yeldon are huge, and McCarron's only been touched once. Thank god most of them (jones, warmack, fluker) will be long gone by August.

Be the team

Next years matchup has the makings for potentially one of our greatest games ever. Think about it: Bama will have little to no respect for us and they'll be higher than a hippie in Colorado. We'll have a new OC who they have little to no film on during their preparation. We'll have a senior Q. with tons to prove, a hungry rookie running back, and a defense that finally lives up to its preseason hype. This could really happen. Buckle your chinstraps boys, we're about to slay Goliath.

Eat your vegetables.

I screen shotted that and it is now the background on my phone.

I love Virginia Tech, regardless of the outcome of every game.

Couldn't resist putting this on here.

Remind me again why Notre Dame is a great addition to the ACC? Why they don't have to be a full member?

Beat uva. That is all.
