It was a beautiful thing--not as close as the score indicates. The only thing to mar the experience was Brent Musberger slurping and sucking at the ND trough half the night, until he had to quit or be exposed to ridicule.

I think Alabama-A&M could now be the best rivalry in football, the Bear connection, and this year’s game now make this the biggest game of the year.

Poor UT. Nobody cares about them now, but hey, they’ve still got The Longhorn Network.

A&M plays at LSU next season. Rice, Sam Houston State, SMU and New Mexico are non-conference foes. Looks like they don’t play Florida, Georgia or South Carolina.

"Poor UT. Nobody cares about them now, but hey, they’ve still got The Longhorn Network."

Only the UT/Texas A&M combo have a higher ($$$) income athletic department than the Alabama/Auburn combo.

There are more people in metro Houston, Texas than the whole state of Alabama.

True...
Texas A&M played an awesome game in Tuscaloosa

I am proud of Johhny Football for his Heisman...
... and the Aggies upheld the SEC tradition & won their bowl game convincingly...

The Aggies "monkey" has been there less than 1 year....

--YET--
The silly leprechaun has been riding 'Bama's post-season-bowl @$$ since January 1975....

But all good thing... in all good time!

Next time we play A&M -- College Station...
Looking forward to it...

Roll Tide some mo'

If not for a bush league reversal of an incomplete Oregon would have been in that game. Now that would have been a game.

Alabama Routs Notre Dame For Yet Another BCS Title Under Nick Saban

"Saban's Alabama Crimson Tide won a third BCS title in four years here Monday, absolutely demolishing Notre Dame 42-14 in a game that – if you can believe it – wasn't as close as that lopsided score. "

Don’t forget Saban was coaching LSU when he won 1 of the 3 mentioned, then he bolted for a pile of cash.

This is Saban's 4th National Championship...three at Alabama, 2009, 2011,2012...the other was at LSU in 2003. (Am I wrong?)

Musberger also “slurped and suckled” at the TV monitor when McCarron’s girl-friend, Katherine Bell, was shown on the screen. He must’ve been gobsmacked by her beauty since he kept on talking about her...and then again a bit later on.

Now that I’ve ranted on Musberger I have to admit when I saw Bell on a local TV news cast two nights ago (SE Alabama) I was also taken with her beauty. She is a real head turner.

KENT STATE UNIVERSITY graduate, Nick Saban Class of 1972, wins his 3rd Championship in 4 years. Our motto back in the early to mid seventies (1972 - 1977) was “Management by Objective”, and the objective is excellence in 2013! Congrats Coach Saban! Include Urban Meyer from Ashtabula and you have the National Champion Coach from Northeastern Ohio five of the last seven years, kinda.

You’re correct - LSU was in 2003 (my how time flies). I guess I wasn’t paying attention to ‘Bama as closely the last 4 years after moving back to TX. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of win/loss records Saban will rack up over his career since he’s still pretty young.

“How did Stanford lose to these guys?”

Senior QB Nunes replaced Luck and proved ineffective and was replaced by freshman Hogan after the first 6 games and 2 loses.

The Stanford team with Hogan would have beaten ND easily.

and I think Stanford would have held Bama under 28.

Stanford held Oregon to 14 and held Wisc. to 14 after Wisc put a 70 against Nebraska. The Stanford D gave up more than 24 only once all season.

I still think Bama beats Stanford because, Bama’s D is also really good. But at least the game would have been close.

“If not for a bush league reversal of an incomplete Oregon would have been in that game”

Oregon was playing at home, averaging 55 a game and only got 14 against Stanford. No excuses for the call, it was first and 10 and would have been 2nd and ten from the duck 10.

Miss Alabama Katherine Webb: AJ McCarron's girlfriend scores thousands of new Twitter followers
http://aol.sportingnews.com/ncaa-football/story/2013-01-07/katherine-webb-twitter-aj-mccarron-girlfriend-miss-alabama-bcs-title-game

The mere sight of Miss Alabama Katherine Webb on national TV, and the words of ESPN commentator Brent Musberger to provide the context, were enough to send the Twitter follower count of Crimson Tide QB AJ McCarron’s girlfriend skyrocketing.

Webb’s first sighting, at the 4:33 mark of the first quarter in Monday's BCS National Championship Game, resulted in an instant spike in traffic across the interwebs, and that also spread to Webb’s Twitter account (@_KatherineWebb). Prior to the game, Miss Alabama had about 2,000 followers. As of 1 a.m. ET Tuesday, she was above 104,000; one of them was Miami Heat star LeBron James. James later unfollowed Webb.....
