Let's make one thing clear: I absolutely believe Alabama is the best team in the country. I thought that before the season and I've seen nothing to really change my mind.
Likewise, at this point, I strongly suspect Notre Dame is overrated in terms of national perception.
I can't deny the Fighting Irish their due, though. Up to now, ND has the best body of work and deserves to be recognized for its schedule.
Before some Harvey Updyke out there decides to come destroy my lawn for not having the Crimson Tide at No. 1, just remember that it's not where you are right now that matters, but where you finish.
(Who am I even kidding?)
Without further adieu...
