Notre Dame and Alabama, two schools that are rumored to care a little bit about their football teams, will meet Jan. 7 in a BCS national championship that's as juicy as these things get. Alabama coach Nick Saban's method for passing the time until then is figuring out a way to break down enough game film while also catching up on his 45 minutes of nightly sleep. Here's our way: imagining a game between Notre Dame and Alabama's alumni.
Sure, you could fill an entire Pro Football Hall of Fame wing with Crimson Tide and Fighting Irish names. But what about everyone else? Alabama and Notre Dame have produced great icons and greater villains—and not just on the football field. In fact, some of the most recognizable representatives of Notre Dame and Alabama aren't even real people. (Warning: We can't guarantee that these results will predict the outcome of the BCS championship.)
