High Tide

January 8, 2013

Ladies and Gentlemen –

The smoke has cleared and all the confetti has hit the floor….

The Crystal Trophy has been lifted

The 2012 National Championship has been decided….

I mean, I guess you could say that it was “decided”

By decided, I mean Notre Dame got their asses kicked between their golden shoulder blades.

Alabama 42 – Notre Dame 14

It wasn’t just a High Tide in Miami on Monday night; it was a damn Crimson Tsunami

Men against Boys

Southerners versus the Yankees

Use whatever cliché you’re comfortable with, but after you boil it down it was nothing more than a good old fashioned Alabama Ass whipping of Biblical proportions.

Notre Dame trotted out John Bon Jove or whatever that fruits name is before the game

And the most highly decorated defensive player in the HISTORY of college football…

Lucky Charms

Four leaf Clovers

Rub a Leprechauns head if you want too….

Not even the Pope himself or Touchdown Jesus could save the Fighting Irish from getting taken behind the College Football Wood Shed and spanked like a petulant four year old by the Mighty University of Alabama Crimson Tide.

That’s right I said “Mighty”….

As in Three National Championships in Four years….

And the last two National Championships in a row

And in case you are counting….

(And I know you are)

That makes “7” National Championships in a row for the Southeastern Conference

But why take my word for it…..

Here is what some of the National Sports pundits said after the game….

Coach Lou Holtz (ESPN): “Suffering Succotash, Tssss Shhhhhh Wsssssss Ssshhhhhh”

Mark May (ESPN): “Coach, for the Love of God please stop spiting on me!”

Coach Urban Myer (Ohio State University): “Without Tebow Notre Dame couldn’t execute plays”

Brent Musburger (ESPN, ABC Sports): “I tell you Herby looking at that Miss Alabama in the stands there makes me think of the time I got in trouble in elementary school for putting that hamster in my pants”

Kirk Herbstreit (ESPN College Game Day): “Brent, you are making me feel creepy, now get your hand off my leg”

Like the rest of the Crimson Tide Nation I am going to enjoy this one for a while

Back to Back Championships haven’t been done at Alabama since I was there in 1978 and 1979

I am going to take the time to truly appreciate the magnitude of what those coaches and players and support staff accomplished this season.

I will have an article or two for you next week to close out the season

But until then I leave you with a familiar greeting from my Home Country
