Notre Dame's changing its mascot to just "Irish" next season. They stopped fighting. OK so maybe they're still the Fighting Irish, but in Monday night's BCS Championship game against Alabama, Notre Dame certainly didn't play like the undefeated, #1 team in the country. The Crimson Tide rolled right over the Irish, 42-14. Alabama's halftime lead was 28-0, which they quickly expanded to 35-0 in the 2nd half. It was embarrassing and a bore to watch. Usually, if there's a big game on during The Tim Conway Jr Show, we'll mention it at least once or twice if it's close. This. Wasn't.
(AP) Alabama has rolled to its second consecutive BCS championship, and third in four seasons, beating No. 1 Notre Dame 42-14 in a BCS championship game that was no classic after all. AJ McCarron threw four touchdown passes and Eddie Lacy ran for 140 yards and scored twice for the second-ranked Crimson Tide, which scored on its first three drives and cruised from there. Alabama (13-1) became the third team to win three national titles in four seasons since polls started being used to crown champions in 1936, and the first since Nebraska from 1994-97. Tide coach Nick Saban now has won four national championships. Only Alabama's Paul ``Bear'' Bryant, with six, has more. The Fighting Irish (12-1) didn't score until they were down 35-0 late in the third quarter.
