Roll Bama Roll, the SBN site for the Alabama Crimson Tide put together a nice post full of graphs and charts for the latest loss by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish against the Clemson Tigers in the Cotton Bowl.
The post suggests, that instead of the narrative that the Irish got their butts kicked up and down the field at the hands of Clemson — the game really was closer than the score. It doesn’t suggest that Notre Dame could have won the game, or anything of that sort, it merely points to the stats and plays and it produces an effort that isn’t worthy of say... the same type of pounding Notre Dame got in 2012 from Alabama.
It’s really more or less of what a lot of us have said — as crazy as it seems and feels after a 27 point loss.
Regardless of how you may feel about advanced stats, it’s definitely an interesting look at the game. YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT BY CLICKING HERE.
