    personally, i hope every commentator out there trashes them. point out every fault (real or conceived) and how ND will prevail. no way to stop their TE. Te'o is the second coming of LT. show all the weaknesses in the D and how to move the ball on it. everything. i hope the players see it and that it gets under their skin. we have all seen what this team can do when properly motivated and i think the media's love of bama would provide that. one word comes to mind: buzzsaw.

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"


    I apologize for getting slightly off subject, but that is exactly what bothers me about a playoff system with too many teams involved.

    Roll Tsunami, Roll...A'ight!

    Jones Calls Players Only Meeting Today

    Which is it though? Is it a regular meeting or a called meeting?

I find it better for my blood pressure to just check in on Tidefans and leave ESPN alone until gameday. Heck, speaking of gameday... I don't even watch that show much anymore.
    I totally agree with this post. I'll get info here on TideFans and turn the TV on Monday night.

    They may have regular meetings on Thursday's but this one was called IMO. From Nico's TV interview I saw along with other supporting stuff it was called and for a reason. Nothing wrong with it and/or to worry about.

    Yeah I just read an article that says they were a little sloppy at practice. I'm sure they've refocused.

    I actually see this as a positive, that we have team leaders holding younger players accountable. Something that seemed lacking on the 2010 team, for instance.
    Discipline.
    Commitment.
    Effort.
    Toughness.
    Pride.

    The comment about "desire" earlier was misunderstood. The fact we've won a couple of championships in 3 years is like the man who has had a steak dinner twice in the last three days.

    ND's hunger may be stronger because they're like the guy who's been lost in the woods for a week and he's finally been found.

    Now, if ND is "hungrier" or if they have more "desire" that doesn't mean they'll automatically win. Our "desire" may just be enough, coupled with what I hope is superior talent and coaching to be the difference maker on Monday night. RTR!!!

    Barrett said during his presser there was no special players meeting. He's not sure where that came from but it never happened.
