Fail !! and spectacularly so.... you spent many words building a refutable case for Alabama and then threw out an entirely emotional prediction (based on "luck of the Irish"), it's like why bother to build your case.

OOOPs !! prior post should have read an irrefutable case...

Actually I wasn't building a case for Alabama, I was just pointing out what the data said. The data clearly favored Alabama. When it comes time to make a pick, one has to realize that the data isn't always right. Even if you figure team A should win 9 of 10 times, you sometimes pick team B to win that one particular instance. Obviously in the end Notre Dame laid an egg big time, but without going out on a limb every once in a while, everyone's picks would just be a few points away from the spread, and where's the fun in that?
