so i decided to pull up the stats on Bama and ND. Where's all the talk about our D???? They have our team beat in total points averaging per game by 4/10 a game and we are well ahead in all other categories. Can't wait until kickoff...RTR

You can't hype the game by saying the 10 pt favorite is better at every stat. They had to find some stat they had us on. I think its funny that the only one was pts/game and we were that close.
Here's the Offensive comparison:
Sortable Team Stats: Total Offense
Team G Pts/G Yds/G PassYds RushYds 1stD/G 3rdM 3rdD% 4thM 4thD% Pen PenYds
Notre Dame 12 26.8 421.3 2626 2430 22.1 80 47.3 3 60.0 68 515
Alabama 13 38.5 439.1 2788 2920 21.2 72 46.8 6 60.0 50 427
ESPN is a bunch of a$$ clowns don't ever listen too them.
Romney said this during the debates and it reminds me of ESPN talking about ND...
"I've got 5 boys. I'm used to people saying something that's not always true but just keep repeating it and ultimately hoping I'll believe it,"
if you break down the points given up by the actual defense alone.....Bama's is a hair better per game.

I didn't see this thread until after I posted mine.
I compiled some stats too.
Alabama and Notre Dame have played similar talent averages wise, but looking at the statistics a little more in depth, Alabama has performed

I think its great because when we put 30 plus on that "Amazing D of ND" it will just make the TIDE look all that more impressive!
All this Nd stuff reminds of 2009 and all the hype Texas was getting for their rush defense and when it counted the most we slammed them.....All the talking heads say that ND has played against Rb's as good as Lacy /yeldon but they haven't seen a o-line and rb's like ours this year, That will be the key to us winning....RTR
Yesssss another one of these threads
Plz tell me more about how you are butthurt because ESPN is trying to generate buzz
I'll take scoring 38.5 and giving up 10.7 every season...average winning margin by 4 tds!!! I just don't see ND holding us under 30 points in this game. If we take care of the ball and prevent turnovers we win by 20 or more. I've went back and watched 3 of ND's games this year, all were narrow victories, and I was not impressed. They have found a way to win and I'll give them that. I think they run into a brick wall tomorrow night and most will spend the remainder of the week in the hot tub. We are mentally and physically prepared to take home the third crystal in four years. Roll Tide
BBD looks good in your thread.
