    You don't win championships by beating down your players mentality. You teach them how to win with class and keep modesty but you also want them to feel superior. People who think they are superior play like they are superior. People who play with fear get beat.

    Great coaches teach players how to be a "champion" and all that that consists of.

    Re: Worried

    I would bet Saban hasn't said anything about winning a national title. That's not what The Process is. Do your job play after play.
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again

    Only a few people in the world have the ability to remember everything. I'm one of them. Pick any day of my life, and I can tell you what I saw or heard.

    Re: Worried

    I'm not worried at all. The hotel is a non-issue. In Pasadena and in NOLA, Coach Saban had the players on a "lock down" 24 hours prior to the game to avoid distractions and to help them focus on the business at hand. In fact, they watched movies amongst other structured activities in order to avoid the media blitz and outside fervor. I've been told they often forfeit their cell phones too in that last 24 hours.

    As for the SEC record in the BCS, I am disappointed, but it's been my opinion from the beginning of the season that the SEC is NOT as strong this year as in year's past. I have enjoyed the strength and dominance of the SEC, as a whole, but it's just not there this year.

    Notre Dame just barely beat Purdue which got blown away by Okie light 58-14. So, maybe the Domers should be worried.

    The last time Alabama won a title, Auburn didn't score an offensive point in the Iron Bowl.

    Re: Worried (hope the team is prepared)

    I'm worried big time! I hope my heart is still beating after this game. I think I had a nightmare last night after watching Fla vs Louisville. Thinking that ND could put a beating on Bama like this one, that's a nightmare! We may need some help from above! Coach Bryant, are you listening or reading this? We may need divine intervention, since Touchdown Jesus is located on ND's campus. I hope they didn't bring the Pope to Miami!

    I sure can't listen to Jessie Palmer, et al on ESPN. After his prediction regarding Florida beating Louisville, I didn't think Florida would have any problem last night. This just shows what he knows! Not much! Everybody on TideFans could do just as good a job as Jessie P.

    I just gotta stop listening to the talking heads, esp. Mr. Palmer, who have NO Clue regarding what will happen in the Biggest Game in the history of College Football. Seems like they only fill talking space on ESPN with guesses and very BAD guesses when they do guess.

    Mr. Corso, where are you? I hope you pick ND!
