Notre Dame suffered another blowout loss in the College Football Playoff on Friday evening.

Alabama soundly defeated the Fighting Irish 31-14, but it wasn’t nearly as close as the final score indicated.

When combining this loss with their 30-3 drubbing vs. Clemson two years ago and their 42-14 loss to Alabama in the 2013 BCS National Championship Game, a pattern begins to emerge.

Alabama quarterback Mac Jones was excellent, completing 26-of-31 passes for 303 yards and four touchdowns. Running back Najee Harris controlled the game on the ground, going for 125 yards on 15 attempts.

But most importantly, Notre Dame proved it could not cover receiver Devonta Smith. Smith caught seven passes for 130 yards and three touchdowns, out-scoring the Fighting Irish by himself.

Fans and media across college football had no issues with pointing out that trending and expressing frustration at Notre Dame’s inability to make this a competitive game.

Some also said it was unfair for Texas A&M, who lost out on the opportunity to play in the College Football Playoff.

Here’s some of that reaction:
