TItle Game FINALLY Here- these guys haven't played in 6 weeks!

WOW- its Notre Dame & Alabama- I think both teams haven't played for over a month! The Irish last played Turkey day weekend.
From a sports medicine point of view- THIS IS NUTS! Just hope that there are not any serious injuries due to all this WAY too much time between games. You can practice all you want but it is not the same.
Besides the "possible rust" from this huge interim, I'm really concerned about injuries- you'd think "the geniuses" behind the NCAA & college football would be able to come up with a better SAFER schedule to play the "endless" bowl games & the championship.
Well, next year when there will FINALLY be a playoff format to determine the champion "on the field", hopefully we won't see an even longer amount of time between games!
We all know that "money determines all these schedules" BUT - lets include player safety & be much smarter with these ridiculous amounts of time between games- gotta be a better way! PS- GO IRISH! :)

    The Sports Doctor

    Born and raised in New York, I've practiced podiatry and sports medicine for over 30 years in the Aurora- Naperville area (almost BUT NOT QUITE LONG ENOUGH to lose my NY accent ). You can check that out for yourselves by listening to Sports Doctor Radio, on Join me live Wednesday's, 3-4 pm. CST. The Sports Doctor was formerly on WDCB 90.9 FM in Chicago for more than 20 years. The Sports Doctor is also read in newspaper columns including The Aurora Beacon News and the Naperville Sun. Also please 'like' my Facebook page, "Sports Doctor Radio" and follow me on Twitter @SportsDocRadio to keep in touch! Go to to hear many past shows and read my many articles. My specialty in sports medicine is orthotic therapy, combined with specific training and strengthening of the feet and ankles. I've been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the best athletes in all sports including many of the Super Bowl Bears back in the 80's, tennis greats John McEnroe and Tracy Austin, and numerous Cubs and White Sox. A true highlight of my career was watching Naperville's hometown figure skater Evan Lysacek, who I first saw as a nine-year-old and put orthotics in his skates, win the 2010 Olympic Gold Medal for men's figure skating with his orthotics (updated of course!) still in his boots. These high performance youngsters still remain my passion. Another big interest of mine is the challenge of our countries greatest epidemic: childhood obesity. Join me on Facebook and Twitter for updates on this important topic.
