Different year, same story: that’s the early theme of this year’s Alabama-Notre Dame postseason clash.

Once again, the Crimson Tide is out to a double-digit lead at the half, scoring with ease against the Fighting Irish defense.

The media reaction on Twitter is going about as one would expect with many calling out the College Football Playoff selection committee for putting Notre Dame in the final four as Brian Kelly’s squad doesn’t appear to belong on the same field as Nick Saban’s No. 1-ranked UA team.

Many are also hoping for a more competitive game in the other CFP semifinal when Clemson takes on Ohio State.
