Two of the most successful programs in college football history, Notre Dame and Alabama, will square off at 8:30 tonight (ESPN) at Sun Life Stadium near Miami for the BCS National Championship.
The nostalgic elements of this game are evident. The way these two teams played during the course of 12 and 13 games, respectively this season is a storyline that has been rehashed for the past month. We all know that Irish head coach Brian Kelly has resurrected Notre Dame and that Tide head coach Nick Saban is the best coach at Alabama since Bear Bryant.
But all this would have never happened had both head coaches and their coaching staffs not put together a winning formula in recruiting and roster-building. The Fighting Irish classes since Kelly’s arrival have ranked No. 17 (2010), No. 9 (2011) and No. 12 (2012) while the Tide had the No. 4 class in 2010 and the nation’s top classes in both 2011 and 2012, according to the 247Sports team rankings, which exclusively uses rankings and ratings from the 247Composite in order to provide a more broad, consensus look at a class rank.

irish not so much. there are 15 teams with more talent than nd.
There are a lot of talented teams around the country with highly rated kids that don't make plays.. Football is a simple game, do your job and the plays will come!
They need some support in the back-end and some depth on the Dline. On offense, they need some speed outside. They are getting all of that except for upfront with this coming class. i don't think ND is going away. Kelly is a good coach.
