I did not watch the ND game, but the 05' LSU game was one of the greatest I have ever seen. I thought it was over and nearly turned it off. It still amazes me that we won.
I agree with this. I remember Ainge making one of the most boneheaded plays I've ever witnessed at the end of the first half that led to an LSU touchdown. I thought for sure we were dead in the water after that.
Oh this was glorious. Watched it in a room full of Georgia fans on a big screen. Had one buddy there who was a Tennessee fan. We nearly went hoarse singing rocky top all through the second half. Fun times!
I never experienced the Miracle in South Bend so i cant fairly make that judgement. IMO, (and probably because i was there for my first and only trip to Tuscaloosa) the MOST EPIC game was the 5 OT win AT Bama in 2003. 2 different 4-down goaline stops, 47 yd fg, 4th and 19 from Clausen to CJ Fayton..... i will honestly never forget that experience. As a bonus, I started "rocky top" and the entire section joined in celebration singing along to rub it in the Bammers' faces.
Why... Because I HATE Notre dame, and LSU is the only team in the SEC I don't hate for some odd reason.

So, do you think the Miracle in south bend is more impressive, or the fourth quarter comeback in baton rouge against LSU. Both games were away games, so for me, that is already impressive. Both games UT was down by 21+ points. Leave the Majors Fulmer crap aside, but which do you think was more epic and why?
Probably so. You have to be at least 30 to even have a frame of reference.
I am at the cusp of 30, and I can tell you that I think that both of these games are amazing, mind blowing, and epic in their own right. I was alive for both. I do remember that John Ward said his miss call of the final FG of the ND game was his only regret. Jerome Bettis as RB for the Irish, Pillow Clausen as QB for the Vols agaisnt the naturally unobvious bengal of LSU... some real epic shiz here. I personally can agree with, or have empathy with, either side.
