    Re: Jones Calls Players Only Meeting Today

    I doubt we lack focus. This is probably a wise coach and his smart juniors/seniors making an impression on the younger guys and "honing" more than having to get them to focus.

    It really is. They did a good job putting the preview show together. Loved the videos of families reactions through the various highs and lows of the season.

    Yeah. Were most of us watching things, we'd probably think they were ready to go. But with Coach Saban, and those like Jones who have been around, they take things to levels most of us are not able to.

    it's amazing we still have fans bringing up the utah game and even more amazing that they're actually trying to draw parallels.

    Agreed. The FLA debacle has seemed to re-kindle some negative thoughts of years past.

    Yup, I just think it's that the leaders wanted the intensity ratcheted up a little, up to Alabama Football standards. They needed to remind that while it's good and all to have fun, they are ultimately in Miami to accomplish a goal.

    I have know doubt we have the better team and we should win. But make no mistake ND is prepared and ready. They may not be better than TX or LSU were, but I believe they are better coached and more focused than either of those two teams were. We must come with our A game. As I have heard Lou Holtz say " you don't have to be the best team in the country, just the best team in the stadium that night"

    Our experience in having been to the Big Show recently is an important asset. The players who have been there before are getting the attention of those who haven't yet.
