Alabama defeats Notre Dame for 15th National Title
by Luke Douglas
In the 2013 BCS National Championship game in Miami Gardens, Florida between #1 Notre Dame and #2 Alabama, the stage was set for a slugfest between two of the top programs in the nation with Alabama having 9 AP National Titles and Notre Dame having 8 AP National Titles. Notre Dame's last title was in 1988 when they went undefeated under Coach Lou Holtz with Alabama being #17. Notre Dame became the first unranked team at the beginning of a season to play for the national title. In previous meetings, the Irish dominated with a 5-1 record with Alabama's lone win against ND coming in 1986 with a 28-10 win at Legion Field in Birmingham.
However, Alabama came into this game as the reigning National Champions having defeated LSU 21-0 in the 2012 BCS title game and had won the 2010 BCS National Championship Game beating the Texas Longhorns 37-21. Alabama was looking to make history by being the first team to win three out of four years since Nebraska won in 1994, 1995 and 1997.
When the dust had settled, there was no doubt in anyone's mind that Alabama was the 2012 National Champions as they completely dominated the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Led by Offensive MVP running back Eddie Lacy who scored one touchdown rushing and one receiving with 140 yards on 20 carries, the Tide offense did just about anything they wanted. Notre Dame's vaulted defense couldn't handle the offensive line led by All-American center Barrett Jones who played on an injured foot. A. J. McCarron threw for 264 yards and four touchdowns that broke a school record for career touchdowns with 49 TD's which passed John Parker Wilson's 47 TD's. His favorite receiver for the game was the highly-touted freshman Amari Cooper who caught six passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns. Heisman trophy finalist Manti Te'o was a non-factor throughout the game as the offensive line and backs either blocked him out of the play or the running backs simply ran through his tackles.
The Tide defense led by Defensive MVP linebacker C. J. Mosley, stifled the Irish thoughout most of the game although the Irish did mount two substained drives that ended in touchdowns in the 3rd and 4th quarters but the game had already been decided. Freshman QB Everett Golson as well as the ND backs were contained for much of the game and the Irish only had 32 rushing yards.
With the win, Alabama extends it's lead in AP National Titles to 10 and overall National Titles to 15.
|Total offense, plays - yards||55-302||73-529|

For those of you new & old, here is some info on Game Days at the Irish Hound to keep in mind:
Parking on St. Paul, in front of the Hound between 6th & 5th is limited & has time restrictions. Parking is available with out time restrictions to the surrounding streets NORTH of 6th (between 6th & 7th, ex: Milwaukee, Steele, Fillmore) as well as along 6th. This is all a residential area so please be considerate to the people who live in these areas!
PLEASE DO NOT crowd
the bar area. The Bartenders at the Hound also work the floor and
will frequently circle the place to wait on the tables as well. If
you crowd the bar, you make it difficult for them to get out around to
the tables as well as block the view of others. (PS - don't forget to
tip your bartenders!)
If you come in and see a few big tables with
just a few folks at it, don't be a stranger! Introduce yourself & grab
a seat (if they aren't using the whole table). The reverse also
applies - if you sit at a big table but don't need all the other
seats, please welcome people to sit with you. The Main room will be
high bar-tops and mostly standing room with the bigger tables to the
side rooms & pool room.
We're going to be having some fun bonus events/activities tied in with
Game Days so keep your eyes out for details each week!!

|Former University of Alabama basketball star and founder of the Denver UA Alumni Chapter Dennis O'Shea, right, watches the BCS National Championship game from the Irish Hound in Denver on Monday night.|
By Jared Downing
DENVER--The Steelers were beat, it was too early to worry about the Patriots, and last Monday afternoon, Doug Reeves was one of the only ones in Denver who wasn’t happy about football. Of course, Reeves had been in Denver for 30 years, and he liked the Broncos. But in the Irish Hound Pub, Reeves wasn’t thinking about the previous day's upset or whether Tim Tebow would come through in the second playoff. After all, his team made Tebow cry.
He was there, 1,000 miles from Dixie, when his team beat Florida in 2009 and he was there when they went on to play Texas. He was there in 1985 when Leigh Tiffin kicked that magic field goal against Auburn, and he was there last April when tornadoes gutted his home state. And now he was there again, at 6:15 p.m.Mountain Time, about to watch his team play the Rematch of the Century.
