That was in the 2012 championship game. My comment was in response to the statement that Notre Dame did not deserve to be in the in the 2013 championship game. When you have to choose between an undefeated Notre Dame or Stanford, who lost to Notre Dame or Oregon, who lost to Stanford, picking Notre Dame was a no-brainer. The question really should be whether a one-loss Alabama (they lost to Texas A&M that year) should have been the opponent to Notre Dame, but Alabama answered that on the field.
For the 2012 championship game, there were many one loss teams, but no undefeated teams other than LSU. Again, the question should have been which one-loss team should have played an undefeated LSU in the championship game . The candidates were Stanford (who had lost to Oregon), Boise State (who had played a weak schedule and had lost to TCU), Oklahoma State (who had lost to Iowa State), or Alabama, who had lost to LSU. Of the one loss teams, Alabama was the best, and Alabama showed that on the field.
Interesting note about Alabama the last two years. Before 2011, no BCS champion finished the season with fewer than 4 wins against year top 25 teams (according to the final Coaches poll). (http://www.cfbtrivia...tby=Wins&cres=1) In 2011, they set an all time low, with only 2 wins, and followed that up in 2012 as the second team to achieve this feat of mediocrity and finish with 3 wins against top 25.
The fact they won, doesn't negate the fact they accomplished far less to get there than any teams in the past.
