Bama looked MUCH better when it mattered, but I disagree regarding the regular season.
ND's schedule was much tougher than Bama's. That should carry a lot more weight than margin of victory.

And, we'll be here again next year. Anyone seen Bama's 2013 schedule?
So tired of this.

So does 1973 - You know the Sugar bowl where you LOST to ND but still claim a title.

I think they listed ND's schedule around 6th or 7th. Bama, TAMU, Georgia, Florida and LSU were ahead of them and ND barely nosed out Mizz, K State and South Carolina in the top ten SOSís.

Difference: The Coaches Poll awarded the title before the bowl in '73.

Who cares when the Litkenhous System awarded the title in '67?

No, we claimed the '73 title before ND beat us in the final game.

National champions used to be named prior to bowl games.

Who is "they"?

There's no way Bama's schedule strength was that high. It's not all their fault (see Arky and Auburn), but there was a lot of deadweight on their schedule. Unfortunately, some of that deadweight wears orange.

Easy...UT claims the 1951 national title but lost to #3 Maryland in the bowl game.
