    For those of us who missed it, anything of note said?

    Nothing really ground breaking from the bits I saw. Several questions about if he wanted to go to the NFL of course. He handled those well. Was asked about sending player home. Said he hoped it was used as a learning opportunity.

    Nothing of note. But in listening, all this talk of 'lack of focus' should cease.

    Barrett said there was no special players meeting during his presser. He's not sure where that came from.

    Just normal Thursday meeting I would gather where some veterans used it as an attitude adjustment time.

    Thought it was the best press conference I have seen CS have. He spoke of motives behind everything he did, and especially emphasized that he was happy where he was at. Coach Hawkins on EspnU said he took three pages of notes in the first few minutes; that every coach should pattern themselves this way.

    It was the Best most relaxed I have ever seen him. They tried to push his button with the NFL stuff & he got tired of that. He talked in great length about having to send the players home. Said he went to the team leadership for advise, & it was harder on him than anything, he does not want to do anything to hurt a kid & these were good kids. They just did not respect the consequence of their actions compare it to drunk driving, in detail.

    He spoke about the team leaders a lot that lots of guys stepped up with all the injuries this year, how proud he was of those who took advantage of the opportunities.

    Spoke a lot about family & how happy they were, how he wanted to be a better person
    , husband, father.

    Someone tried to say he would be bigger than CPB he shut that down quick, he said no coach he knew should be even mentioned in comparison with CPB. Showed a lot of respect.

    It was a loooong press conference. Spoke a lot about preparing the team to stay focused on the here and now, the process, player/person development, much respect for the traditions of both programs. He said many nice things about ND's offense and defensive front seven. Handled himself humbly and sincerely when compared to CPB and again explained his satisfaction and happiness at being at Alabama. Answered questions about disciplining players and compared it to parenting. Spoke well of several specific players he was asked about (Jesse, Lacy, TJ, CJ, Barrett, etc. Spoke about his focus on trying to be a good person himself and influencing the players to do the same, to be leaders and adjust their roles as they mature in the program.

    There was just a lot. He was relaxed, smiled at points, never got rattled or short. Totally in command of himself and his audience. I'm so proud he's our coach!
