Another Vote for the Crimson Tide in the BCS National Championship from the Huffington Post

Alabama footballJordan Schultz of the Huffington Post tried hard in his article, Notre Dame Will Beat Alabama in BCS Title Game, to talk himself into proving Notre Dame is a better choice. But he just couldn’t do it.

To be honest, Alabama would win seven or eight times if these two played 10 times. It has much more speed and a legitimate pro in quarterback AJ McCarron, who led the nation in passing efficiency and very nearly made the trip to New York City for the Heisman presentation. He is a tall, classic drop-back passer who excels in play-action and loves to throw the deep ball. That play action of course is made possible by a two-headed rushing monster in Eddie Lacy and frosh T.J. Yeldon, who could wind up being better then Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson.

‘Bama cornerback Dee Milliner is a surefire first-round draft pick and perhaps, even better then 2011 All-American corner Dre Kirkpatrick. He possesses very good cover skills and terrific zone ability. Then, there is the matter of fellow All-American C.J. Mosley, a linebacker who goes sideline to sideline like a cheetah with the ferocity of a lion. He replaced first-rounders Dont’a Hightower and Rolando McClain easily.

So, to answer your question, yes, the Fighting Irish are going to need something of a miracle. Yes, oddsmakers have them listed as 9.5-point underdogs and yes, ‘Bama is more talented.

Roll Tide, friends. Roll Tide!
