I am not all that thrilled with either choice, because they each have long histories of winning.  No real underdog in this fight.  So, I have chosen to cheer against the team from the SEC, just so we can stop hearing about the conference for a year.

Just to keep in mind, this thread asks "who are you pulling for", and not "who do you think will win."  Just for the record, those two questions result in different answers for me.

Alright Mike. You got me there. Break it out for us. Who do YOU want to win and who do you THINK will win?

Personally, I want Bama to win. I'm an alum, so I'm biased.

I do think it will be a good game though.

Was that supposed to bother me? :p

I've paid so little attention to college football this year, I had no idea what you were talking about.  Had to Google it.

FWIW I'm pulling for ND just because they're the underdog, but that's hardly for any particular love of ND.  I do think 'Bama will win, but that's also not a terribly informed opinion.  Whichever team wins this year I'm not gonna lose any sleep over it.

 It's only a game, right :)

LOL Yeah it is. A big vacation scheduling hoopla started at work over the weekend because a couple of coworkers blocked out every weekend in September and October so they could go to UT football games. A couple of others with more seniority were not happy. I'm sure much drama will ensue. All over a game.  :laugh:

I'm glad to see ND back in the hunt, but I'll be rooting for an SEC win.  :)

UT? Are they hopeless romantics, or masochists?  Yeah, I know.  True fans go to the games regardless of the probable outcome.  Sometimes it is just the party atmosphere that draws them.

I was glad to see my Head Coach turn down UT, BTW.

Everyone says the SEC is over rated yet for the past seven years no one has been able to take the national championship from the SEC.

Impressive win for Bama.  They have the best pair of running backs in the country hands down!

Don't you mean $ec - $ec - $ec ?
That said, I hate ND and was glad to see the outcome. Not to mention I cashed in. 9 1/2 was a lot to give up but the writing was on the wall. ND was overrated the entire year and it finally caught up with them.
I wonder what would have happened if Alabama had matched up with Oregon? Now THAT would have been a game. Congrats Bama

How can anyone say they were overrated?  They won every game.  I could care less, didn't even watch the game, but there obviously is a huge amount of talent on both sides of the ball to get to where they got to.  To say they were overrated is just crazy.

So many of those "championship" games seem to be like that. Especially in football where the players are a perishable and physically continually declining component.

10 point underdog. The BCS got it wrong this time, plain and simple. Yes they played the schedule that was in front of them. But they were NOT the number 1 team in football. MAYBE top 5...maybe.
What's even more confusing is that they will likely be the number 1 or number 2 team to start the season in 2013.

Have everyone play 4 games. Rank them from there. It's a new year, new slate. Go.
