Yes, Manziel certainly showed you how it's done this year.

Go Ducks.

Ouch that was a one sided game ... but then agin how many players gunna grad-u-ate from A vs ND?
One sided the other way y'all.
At least the BSC was clear on the teams this year. Well deserved victory.

Although it pains me to say it, (auburn fan my whole life), IMO, the two best teams in the nation played back on Dec 1.

That game was brutal. Was it just me or did it look like the NFL replacement refs were in attendance again in the first 20 minutes or so?

Loved the interview with Kelly at half time.

well one thing is certain...not a lot of those SEC boys go to college for their smarts, or to earn a FOUR year degree....but they certainly can play football.

Do a count of 'bama's seniors and most are probably five or six year majors

Funny moment of the game was Brent babbling "If you're a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pop."

I thought this was about the Securities & Exchange Commission.

Did you catch why....he was talking about the QB's hottie girlfriend!!!!! The announcers AND cameramen spent a good amount of time focused on college chicks in the crowd...it was hysterical to say the least. Wifey just shook her head - but my son and I were rating them

So true. The SEC loads up with JuCo transfers. It is like a draft plugging their holes. Some football conferences (like the ACC - except Fla. St.) have little to no JuCo transfers and this starts to show in the trenches late in the season when the 18 yr old kid is lined up against the 22-3 yr old man.

Who could have missed that?

Or some of Brent's prior highlights, this one making Jenn Sterger a household name: http://youtu.be/3Pj2zV5FdYU

I think they had said she was Miss Alabama or something. Pretty cute. She picked up his mom after a TD at one point which was pretty funny.

Oregon did not play Ohio State on 12/1...which game are you talking about?

These trees look a little thin these days, karma for Cecil's new church, no doubt...

I hung out with her quite a bit in college, talked to her before she was in Miss USA. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and her family is great too.

It looked like men and boys playing. Kinda remonded me of UF and Nebrska back in '96. I love SEC football but Alabama is in league with Satan. ND should have had the Pope calling some plays.

The real question is not how many Alabama players will graduate, but how many are functionally illiterate!

Root for a team, not a conference. I hate when fans of awful SEC teams think they're somehow a part of Alabama winning another title. This thread should be re-titled Alabama football rules

Wow some Haters in this group. Every college Div. 1 player goes to college with the dream to play in the NFL and be rich, even the big name ND players. The best players leave college early and therefore don't graduate on time or ever. But so what? They got out of college what they needed, an NFL career. They don't need a diploma.
The SEC recruits the majority of its players from high school in the south. All schools take Juco transfers but they are not the majority.
Face it ND was over rated due to their past glories not present. They don't play in a conference with tough games week in and week out. They don't have to play a Conf Title game. They should not have been in this game.
AL would have scored 70 points against Oregon, they have no defense. OR would have put some points on the board but AL still would crush them.
I'm not a huge football fan, I don't watch it every weekend. I graduated from the University of Wyoming and support the Cowboys for heavens sake! But I know the SEC produces the best football teams year in and year out. I can't believe anyone here could honestly think differently.
Any conference will produce some good teams but right now the SEC is the most consistent.

I agree but I think teams plateau a little once they reach a certain level of success. They just don't need to take the risks like a team that's still on their way up. I think it's getting a little tougher to get away with kids posting dumb stuff on social media.

FSU and Bama grad here
