    Go back and watch the ND/Pitt game. It might help to calm your nerves. If that doesn't help then try some Xanax.

    Re: The Notre Dame Defense!

    I'm not worried about the team not being hungry enough. As the game gets closer, my stomach is already in a knot just like it has been every time the Tide plays in a NC game. I'm sure the players are ready to go. I may be mistaken, but I believe the team is healthier than they've been since early in the season.

    I feel more confident after watching OU and Pitt play. I watched ND play both those teams. ND was better than OU and deserved to win that game, but they were so flat against Pitt. I can't imagine how badly Bama would beat Pitt on their (Bama's) worst day.

    The Notre Dame Defense!

    When did ND play Pitt? Was it after an emotional game like us playing the Aggies after LSU.

    Yep, ND played Pitt the week after OU.

    A lot of people seem to discount where an opponent falls on a schedule. I'd expect ND to beat Pitt handily if they played again, but if they'd have played Stanford the week after OU, that's a loss.

    Re: The Notre Dame Defense!

    I think ND is really overated.... I keep hearing that they didn't really start coming together until the last few games, but honestly, they played teams that didn't come to play... If ND had to play those teams again I know they'll come out of that with two loss. They have not faced a real good team like Alabama all year long, so THey have no idea what they are getting into. Even Texas A and M said that it was one of the toughest game they played all year round...

    Re: The Notre Dame Defense!

    Overrated, underrated, rated just right. None of it will matter come Monday night. On paper, we're a better team. But all they do is have to prove that they can be better than us for one game. I am, however, of the opinion (conviction even) that that won't happen.

    Yep, ND really came together in the last game against that mighty USC winning with one TD and five field goals against a team
    that finishes 7-6 after losing to GT 21-7.

    Re: The Notre Dame Defense!

    I think some of the nervous jitters are from so much media hype about how good they are whether it true or not, you start to believe they are a brick wall up front. I have watched a lot of their games this year and yes, their front 7 a very good but not impenetrable. The DB's seem to be the weak link and if their safeties pull up too close, they'll be looking at the back pocket of AC. The thought of Lou "spitter" Holtz admitting ND got beat by Bama does make me smile and relax.

    They beat BC 21-6. Now I know they won, but BC was horrible this year and just 21-6?

    Re: The Notre Dame Defense!

    I just get nervous thinking about how perfectly everything is set up. Halfway through the season, I was almost cheering for Notre Dame (GASP) because I thought they were by far the worst team we could play for a national championship. I was watching the 30-for-30 on "The U" the other day where they highlighted the 1987 Fiesta Bowl for the NCS. Miami outgained PSU 445 - 162, but had SEVEN TURNOVERS and lost 14 - 10. I honestly believe the only way BAMA loses this game is if we have a nightmare type game with injuries, turnovers, etc... I am REALLY trying to just enjoy the moment since I am pretty sure I have no impact on this game. I want this one so bad though as it has been a long time coming.

    Re: The Notre Dame Defense!

    their D is a bit more talented than the MSU team we played couple years ago, but depth of the team is not quite there yet. As long as we take care of business and not make as many mistakes as we made during the SECCG, I'm not worried about their defense. Media is making them look a lot better than they actually are.
