    ESPN Notre Dame/Bama special...

    Is not very balanced. The ND segment came first and it was all praise for ND. Now, in the Bama segment, about half of it seems to be why ND will beat Bama...

    I agree. I think it has been poorly done.

    I thought the Mark Schlabach phoner interview segment was good, but other than that it pretty much has been a ND infomercial.

    Yep...I had it set to Tivo as we were going out to dinner...but not worth it. It's pretty much all ND coverage. Blech.

    Agreed - although it may work to our advantage since they underestimate Bama.

    Their building up the ND as unstoppable for us because of Golson/Riddick/Eifert bordered on dishonest. Look at their crummy offensive results...

    Yet another example of SEC fatigue by the remainder of the sports world. Here's hoping that fatigue turns to pure and outright jealousy.

    I noticed this afternoon was all ND then one special on Bama. Did PTI do a special on the Bama timeline like they did ND? That would have been interesting to see.

    They're doing the so-called Bama segment now...

    I saw the same thing. The first time I saw it, I watched the Notre Dame show and as expected it was all Notre Dame. Then the BAMA segment pops up and it's at least half Notre Dame. Get it right ESPN! Also, did you notice that ESPN has a little 1/2 hour show with Notre Dame coaches, new and old. They have Parseghian, Holtz, and Kelly on there. Where's the show with old BAMA coaches? Krymsonman

    They gotta say something just to get folks to watch... A lot of folks paid some big money around this programming for people not to watch it. I am not too worried.

    Yeah I see that one. PTI earlier had a special on the timeline of Nd over the years and their commentary clips from over the years. I would love if they did that for Bama. To see what they said when Shula was here and when Saban was hired.

    Who are they going to talk to for 1/2hr Coach Stallings? - other than him most of our coaches are nothing but a punchline that are still alive...
