    Worried (hope the team is prepared)

    I hope the Florida loss will get the team's attention. ND has great motivation

    to beat the SEC's power hype. Florida was flat and the Cardinals super pumped.

    We are 1-5 against the Irish so we must not be overconfident.

    Makes no difference. I'm sure Oklahoma thought they were going to smash Florida after seeing Alabama wet the bed in the Sugar Bowl a few years back. Conferences don't win games, teams win games...and teams win games by matchups and performance.

    You say "we" like we're actually playing in the game. We're just fans. I'm pretty sure Saban reminds them daily they can be beat. Honestly, if it takes Florida losing to get the Bama players attention then we have worse problems than we know of.

    Worried

    RGW is right. Besides, LSU and UF just didn't care, and Les Miles cost LSU big time. Yes, MSU got waxed but it will not affect our performance. I seriously doubt coach lets them watch the games anyway.

    Re: Worried

    We have been the hunted for 13 straight games. Our team has had a target on it's back ALL year. LSU & Fla (as well as UGA&SC) found out that being the hunted against a team that has nothing to lose ISN'T so easy. Every team that has faced Bama has had an INSTANT "bowl game" and brought their best against us(well don't know if Auburn counts-but I think that was their best). This will be Bama's 14th "Bowl Game" of the year against an UNDEFEATED #1 ranked team. If they are nothing but FOCUSED--I'll be shocked!!

    To be fair, most everyone here uses the term "we" when discussing Bama football.

    To the OP's point - I'm not worried about this team's motivation. I haven't seen complacency at any time this year. Suddenly we are gonna be flat for the national championship? With a chance to be THE team that seals history and secure a dynasty?

    Nah, no way...

    It will make just as much difference in the BCSCG as Florida's loss to Georgia or MS State's loss to LSU did. None.

    Re: Worried

    I've heard Alabama is staying at Fountainebleu, one of the nicest hotels/clubs in Miami. I'd be more worried about that rumor of lodging assignment by the bowl committee than what LSU, MSU, and Florida have done lately.


    FYI, I'm not too terribly worried because I'm sure Saban is going to keep them locked away from all the rappers and musicians hanging around there this weekend.

    Re: Worried

    If the fans were in charge, I'd be worried. Thankfully, Coach Saban is running the show.

    It's a little ridiculous to disrespect an opponent like undefeated #1 Notre Dame, which has only surrendered 10 TDs all year on defense. They are good and they are hungry. Brian Kelly is an excellent coach and he will have ND ready.

    Coach Saban repeatedly says that "fans are part of the team." As part of the team (per our leader :-)), I'll do as he does and respect Notre Dame. I'm not “worried,” but expect an epic battle in Miami.

    Re: Worried

    I'm not worried, but sure am concerned about our lack of success in third down areas. I don't share the optimism that most of you have that we will win handily given that the team's focus is not lost. I think this will be a hard fought game and there will be more nail biting moments like we had against LSU, TAM and Georgia.
