Sheesh! So who to root for on January 7th....Alabama or Notre Dame.
In 'Bama's favor: long-standing mutual admiration between the fan bases of PSU and 'Bama (for the most part); they definitely are a solid football team on both sides of the ball; they beat Georgia in what was arguably one of the very best football games of the season; and they're not Notre Dame.
In Notre Dame's favor: they had a nice undefeated season completely unexpectedly; it's good for football when Notre Dame is relevant; it'll be good to finally have someone other than an SEC team as champion; it might shut SEC fans up for a little while.
Reasons against Alabama: They've won it enough already; they're an SEC team and it'd be good to shut their fans up for a while (how can anyone listen to Finebaum?!); it'd be nice to knock Saban down a peg or two (SaTan...SaBan....someone made a deal with the devil me thinks...).
Reasons against Notre Dame: I love watching ND lose ALMOST as much as I love watching Pitt lose; there'll be NO living with Notre Dame fans for the next 12 months if they win...they'll be insufferable; the fellating of T'eo in the national media will be unbearable; the only thing worse for football than a non-relevant ND is a way too relevant ND.
So I am completely conflicted almost to the point of maybe not watching. Last thing I want is to be like Brady Quinn's sister when she was wearing that god-awful sewn together tOSU/ND jersey when she was dating AJ Hawk. Anyone else feeling the same ambivalence?
How do you feel about the championship? (Read all answers before selecting. And please, answer truthfully....remember, this is for posterity)
