An exclusive report from our Alabama bureau:

SPECIAL TO THE OTHER MCCAIN
In a stunning display of the ability to run out the clock, in a game punctuated by clock mismanagement on both sides, an Alabama team that displayed exactly the same weaknesses that it underlined in Sharpie, highlighted, and pointed to with those little 19th-century “pointing finger” logos in both the LSU and Texas A&M games, managed to hold on for a win that the Georgia Bulldogs would surely have procured had they simply stopped the clock with a spiked ball after their last first-down.
Alabama fans everywhere are praying that Notre Dame’s game-film viewing machines will break down, and that all its coaches were struck blind during Alabama’s last four games but, as Billy Joe Bob Stumpwater observed, “it’s ok if the Irish watched the Auburn game, just not the other three.”
The overwhelming fan sentiment, however, is “who cares; we’re going to the BCS and Georgia isn’t. And neither is Texas A&M,” as relayed by some blond girl in a houndstooth hat who followed up with, “I’m so drunk . . .”
Plans to provide exclusive blog coverage of the BCS Championship Game Jan. 7 in Miami are contingent on readers hitting the tip jar in a very serious way. Media credentials deadline is Dec. 14.
