    Jones Calls Players Only Meeting Today (Jones says never happened)

    Watching the BCS special on ESPNU and one of the ESPN analysts said that Barrett Jones was concerned about the focus of the Alabama players in Miami and called a players only meeting this morning to address it.

    Edited - He might have called the meeting yesterday. Anyone know if this is still a concern?

    WSFA reported this morning that Saban was yelling during practice yesterday to get the focus. Figured it was being over blown. Maybe not...

    I didn't get an invite so this is probably only a rumor...

    BTW for the record, I'm not a playa, I just crush A LOT!

    Man.... I sure do hope they get focused. I don't want to see another Utah game.

    Oh well...... we will see Monday.

    Guess we'll find out Monday night. Doesn't keep my ulcers from flaring up all weekend though.

    I sure hope he got everyone FOCUSED on what is truly important, i.e. sending the Fightin' Irish back up north with the blues, and a state of depression for their loss in Miami.

    It baffles me how their could be a lack of focus before a national championship game. After all the work they have done it would seem easy to keep them focused for a few days with a chance to do something incredible.

    I really don't even understand it for the "lesser" bcs bowl games. Why blow am opportunity to play on national tv and finish your season off on a high note.

    I saw it too and it was yesterday per the report. I also saw an interview with Nico today and he said they needed to get more focused and then said they had a real good practice. I have a feeling Coach got on them bad about not being focused after a bad practice and then they had the players only meeting and then the better practice after the meeting. It sounds like a young team not being focused at a very important time and Coach and the seniors let them know to change their mindset. I believe all is good now.

    We gotta remember this team has young players who contribute......the Miami scene can be too much for 18-20 yr olds.
