There's probably 10 other teams that would play Alabama better than this. And I'm not just talking about on a one game basis. This game is just proving that, while they deserved to be here, Notre Dame put together one of the least impressive undefeated seasons in a long time -- by a big name school playing a schedule of their caliber.
By name brand only, they arguably had the hardest schedule.
