ND was blown out because the SEC is just that good. Yeah, they had a tough schedule. Alabama had a tougher schedule. Much tougher. Heard somebody say it last week. To bad Stanford made that kick in overtime to beat Oregon. Then again, maybe Alabama would have been left out. Anyway, there will soon have a playoff system. Also, don't forget about Ohio State. They will be a force once again. They where undefeated this year but still on suspension.
