    Jones Calls Players Only Meeting Today

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.
    Hope you're right.

    They could have gotten distracted by the Big and Bright lights in the Big city and some broads on the beach.

    Not to be a nervous Nellie but we heard rumors just like this leading up to the Utah game. Ultimately I think we passed the blame of the eventual outcome to the Andre Smith debacle and the disappointment of not being in the BCSCG and losing to UF.

    So we'll see if we have another "Utah" Monday night or not. I certainly hope not. But how the "flow" of this bowl season is going for the SEC we're on schedule for a letdown. Thank goodness the outcome ultimately is in the players' and coaches' hands.

    18-22 year old kids can make dumb mistakes at times.

    I hope Jones let every one know his foot would be lodged somewhere else if players do not get refocused. Hopefully, Williams, Nico, AJ, Warmack, Lacy, Lester, and others volunteered to help.

    The team was focused in the Big Easy, Miami should be no problem.

    except for the Utah game due to all the issues you stated, Bama has done a great job under Saban for all other post season games. I am not worry.

    i would imagine what they think is a lack of focus is probably a lot different than what we think is a lack of focus. luckily for us, we have team leaders like jones that know what it takes to win it all

    my thought is the only reason we are hearing this now is because worrying fans consume more pre game analysis and with the weak bowl schedule there is nothing else to talk about

    DISCLAIMER: I hereby reserve the right to discuss any game on the Alabama schedule I wish, at any time during the season, as I am not a part of the Crimson Tide football program. I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. 2009-2014, crimsonaudio
