Irish Fans in Denial Blame Refs for Loss

Alabama’s 42-14 BCS title game victory over Notre Dame was completely one-sided.

The Crimson Tide outgained the Irish, 529–302. They converted 8-of-13 third down opportunities. And they held a Notre Dame rushing attack that had averaged over 200 yards per game in the regular season to 32.

You can throw all those statistics out the window, several Irish fans in the Twittersphere insist. Alabama won because the referees screwed Notre Dame over.

While there was a questionable call or two that went against Notre Dame early, we’d like to see how Irish fans such as these justify blaming the refs for Notre Dame’s sudden inability to tackle.
