Alabama showed why they belonged there. The only thing about their win is the anger/sadness over what might have been as a Georgia fan. While it was disquietingly fascinating to watch/hear Brent fawn over AJ McCarron's mom and GF (as an aside, didn't you expect Musburger to demand someone show the Big Lead's post on DeeDee Bonner?), that paled in comparison to the nearly open rooting both Kirk and Brent were doing for Notre Dame.
Now, I don't think they had a legitimate rooting interest in the game; I think they were worried, probably because a producer was shouting in their ears, about viewers turning off the TV.
As for the sadness/anger part, we had our shot.
