After Yet Another Title Game Win, Alabama Takes its Place in the History Books

After Yet Another Title Game Win, Alabama Takes its Place in the History Books

Another great year of college football, another unfortunately forgettable title game. While we can’t necessarily count Notre Dame as an ACC team officially, it still stings a bit to see the Irish get so thoroughly throttled last night. Regardless of what Alabama coach Nick Saban says, the Crimson Tide are a dynasty and they proved it on Monday. Congratulations to them, and let’s all collectively make an effort to end the SEC streak next year, since we failed so miserably again in 2012.

  1. only the SEC had more top 10 teams than the ACC… hard to believe the Big XII didn’t have ANY top 10 teams. With U of L, ACC and Pac-12 are about the same; without Ohio State, the Big Ten has nobody in the top 15. So it’s SEC ACC, Big 12, Pac 12 Big Ten everybody else

    • These results won’t shut people up about the conference’s shortcomings, though. Unsure why that’s the case, but even when the ACC does incredibly well in the offseason, we’re still dissed.
