How long did you figure we would have to wait until this happened? You knew somebody eventually would say the hoax involving Manti Te’o was at least partially responsible for Notre Dame losing so badly to Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game.
By the way, the Twitter post above comes from an organization that claims no affiliation with Notre Dame or the Fighting Irish football team. It’s just a fan group.
I’m not buying the hoax affected the outcome of that game. Notre Dame’s own athletics director, Jack Swarbrick, said only a couple of coaches and a couple of Manti Te’o's teammates knew his girlfriend dying of leukemia was a hoax until Deadspin.com’s story Wednesday. If only a handful of people knew about it when Notre Dame and Alabama kicked off, how could it have kept the Irish from playing competitively?
Alabama freshman Devonta Pollard of Porterville, Miss., returned to his home state Wednesday night and had two terrific alley-oop dunks in the Tide’s 75-43 win over Mississippi State. We’ve got video below of both dunks, courtesy of the Southeastern Conference.
He finished with seven points and a pair of steals.
Tired of BCS videos yet? I didn’t think so. Here’s Amari Cooper‘s interview with the SEC Digital Network following Alabama’s 42-14 win over Notre Dame.
Just a thought I have every time I see Amari Cooper: Doesn’t he look about 14 but act about 29?
Alabama coach Nick Saban typically doesn’t allow freshmen to do interviews, except in situations in which he gets overruled, such as the BCS game. He said he began this policy at Michigan State when he star freshman receiver, Plaxico Burress, gave an inflamatory interview. I’m thinking Cooper could handle doing interviews better than Burress did.
