    Perry, Lester, and Milliner Respond to Theo Riddick's Comments About Bama Secondary

    Today, Nick Perry was asked about Theo Riddick's comments about the Alabama secondary.

    For those that have not read or heard Riddick's comments...

    Asked what could be gained by Notre Dame from its review of Alabama's loss to Texas A&M, Riddick said: "That we can take advantage of their secondary."
    Nick's comments from today:

    "Weíre in the spot (playing for a national championship) we want to be in, so apparently we couldnít have played that bad," he said. "It's kind of hard when people point out the secondary as the weak link, but we had the No. 1 (total) defense in the nation. Thatís a compliment to our program. If thatís our weak point, so be it. If next year we get the same opportunity to play for the national championship and the secondary is the weak link, Iíll be happy with it.Ē
    Milliner's comments from Friday:

    Shortly after, UA cornerback Dee Milliner had this to say in response: "They say we're the weak link? Hopefully, they'll take some chances and throw the ball out there and we can make some plays on the ball."

    Milliner went on to call it extra motivation.

    "I'm glad they would say something like that. It makes you want to play even more and go out there and make plays, our secondary also. We know that because we've been hearing it all season -- we're the group that can be exploited," Milliner added. "Since they think we're the weak links of the team, hopefully they'll try to exploit us and we'll make plays to change their mind."
    Lester also commented about it:

    In typical fashion, fifth-year senior safety Robert Lester brushed Riddick's remark aside.

    "We're just going to go into this game and do what we do best. That's go and play Alabama football," Lester said. "You know, execute the game plan and cover the receivers. That's out job and that's what we plan on doing."
    Glad to see our guys give a classy, organization-based response. None of the three gave a response that can be used as real bulletin board material.

    "We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."
    -- Nick Saban day after beating Clemson

    Probably didn't even need to respond honestly.

    I agree. Riddick's comments were ridiculous in the first place. From reading tweets from the ND offense's media session yesterday, one can come away with an easy impression "ND has a chip on its shoulder." ND of all schools should never have a chip on its shoulder.

    All due respect ND should have a chip on their shoulder all they have heard is: "ND would MAYBE be the 4th or 5th best team in the SEC" "They have never faced a team like Alabama"



    Kind of like all the GARBAGE the 92 Alabama team heard before they played the "unbeatable" Hurricanes.



    You remember how that game turned out?

    Good thing we've already proven we're not unbeatable this year. I think our guys have just as much to prove. They'll be ready.

    You honestly cannot say that ND does not get respect every season. Especially with the mouthpiece known as Lou Holtz.

    Yep. Technically we're the underdogs being ranked 2nd.

    Holtz? He's a JOKE IMO. Him and Corso BOTH need to retire. The ONLY college analyst who is worth ANYTHING is Bruce Feldman.

    I grown to like Mark May. He seems pretty impartial.
