This Post is Graphic in Nature: A Dawg’s National Championship Preview

Most of you hate these things, so I figured I’d end the season on a sour note.  Here are a few graphs to make tonight’s National Championship game a little easier to understand.

Similar Programs

The similarity of these two “power” programs is being oversold right now.  Sure, there’s a lot of history for each program, but as you can probably tell by this chart,  Notre Dame and Alabama haven’t exactly been on the same page as of late.

Alabama is Pretty Much Better at Everything

This chart shows the National Ranking of both Alabama and Notre Dame in several categories.  In this instance, a lower line is a good thing as the best possible ranking is 1.  I gave Notre Dame a crimson colored line and Alabama a blue line just to confuse you.

Notre Dame’s Entitlement and Alabama’s Chip

For some reason Notre Dame thinks they belong in this game.  They do not.  And I think that makes Saban angry.  You won’t like him when he’s angry.

Check back later this afternoon for a slightly more formal game preview.  Enjoy the game.

That’s all I got/

  1. Excellent representation Andrew. I’m sold.

  2. .just because you hate ND doesn’t mean they aren’t good enough to beat Bama. ND deserves to be in this game and I believe they win with a solid performance 21-17. But, I pull for all SEC teams- Roll Tide!

    • I hate ND but I’m no blind Alabama supporter either. In the five games I’ve watched the Irish play this season I just haven’t seen anything to indicate that they can beat the Tide.

      Could I be wrong? Certainly. But I can’t in good faith say that I expect ND to win.

  3. Aren’t graphs and charts fun!
