    Saban doesn't want the team watching LSU-Arkansas game

    I'm confused. I get the fact he'd rather they be watching film of Auburn. I don't get how the guys would be able to watch the LSU-Arkansas game. It's a 2:30 game so wouldn't the team either be practicing or travelling or a combo of the two? I know they don't fly to Auburn, so I assume they bus there. Maybe they'll be on the bus as the game is being played. Maybe that is what he's talking about. Gonna be hard for the guys not to want to take a peak at that game.

    There focus Better be on the Barn & CNS knows it, heck, I had rather they watch the 2nd half of last years IB over & over. It has been said that it was played in the locker room at camp, I hope so.

    This Team has Heart, the coaches will make sure they are focused.

    But what happens on Friday ain't got a dang thing to do with the business at hand for the Tide.

    I for one am glad he has them concentrating on the Barner's!

    The ls who's vs Hawg's game is of no consequence to Bama if they don't come out on top vs the Barn.....

    They can TVo it and watch it after they beat the burn out of awburn!

    It is not too hard figure out CNS is talking about them taping or video recording the game to watch later. I am sure that is what CNS is talking about. They will get plenty of time after the Auburn game to watch that tape, over and over. lol

    CNS is just saying stay focused. None of what happens in the LSU vs. Arkansas games means anything to Bama unless they win against Auburn.

    The game's on Friday. What else might the team be doing? I don't know the schedule.

    They normally fly out about 3:00 for away games. Since they're not flying I assume they'll bus and leave about that same time. I know they have a strict ritual night before and day of game. They'll get settled in, have meetings, eat, have more meetings, bed check, etc... I assume they still stay in Montgomery but don't know for sure.

    Yep, I guess my question sounds stupid now. I wasn't even thinking about taping it. I'm sure they will. I was mainly thinking they wouldn't have the opportunity to watch since they'll either be travelling, meeting or a little of both. I know he wants 100% focus. I'm not sure he got that this past Sat. Absolutely no excuse on anyone's part not to come in 100% focused on Auburn and Auburn alone.

    They can record it, but they wouldn't have access to it (assuming they leave T-Town before/during the game) until sometime Sunday. By then they'll know the score and likely seen highlights. Watching it would be anticlimatic.

    If what happened last year in the Iron Bowl is not enough to get them focused they will never be! If they ain't madder than a wet hornet when they go into Jordan Hair I will be very disappointed!

    I will do everything within my power to get these suggestions to CNS. Clearly he is inexperienced preparing for big games.

    This is what CNS means when he talks about avoiding "clutter". The team needs to be focused on dismantling *uburn (and nothing else) until the clock hits 00:00 Saturday.

    If the guys don't realize that all they have to do is beat the Barn Saturday and they are in the BCS Championship game. They don't even have to whoop them -- although it would be fun and provide pay back for last year -- and they are in. Assuming LSU beats Arky, they still have to play GA with the added potential for injury.

    The buses they take have satellite TV/wifi so it would be available there. I'm guessing Coach won't let them watch it on the bus TVs but it will also be streaming online which many of the players will have access to on laptops, smartphones, iPads, etc.
