    Re: ESPN team has its marching orders - diss Bama...

    Having watched ESPN pump us up since before the Michigan game I would have to believe they may have run out of material. ESPNs bias begins and ends with what people are gonna tune in to watch. It's just inside of 24 hours til kickoff of what will be the most anticipated game of my life. They could show straight static til then and I would still check in every half hour to see if something changed.

    Lol I was thinking the same thing. Commentators get so excited/enamored when a player plays two positions. Its normally because he isn't really good at either one, but average at both.

    Welcome to my world, Earle.

    The price I pay for having had upgraded the home theatre set-up to now include a 60" plasma - to watch Bama football, of course - is having to endure my g/f and her son's penchant for such shows.

    I simply cannot abide them.

    Unfortunately, I don't get ESPN up here in Canada - though tomorrow's game will be picked up by a Canadian cable sports channel...

    I plan on DVR'g the game, but gather from what I'm seeing in this thread that I should probably not bother recording the 1/2 hour pre-game?

    All of the "stories" in this show are from the season or right after the season. None seem to be new.

    Add to that, the "SEC fatigue" audience, and color me unsurprised that ESPN would pander to those audiences.
    The pander to USCw for much the same reason, not that the pandering did the Trojans much good.

    Re: ESPN team has its marching orders - diss Bama...

    I watched some sort of special on ABC yesterday. It was ridiculous, yes they threw in some Alabama stuff but it was like 10 minute filmed segment on Notre Dame, 2 minute filmed segment on Alabama. They also interviewed coaches, Nick Saban, Brian Kelly, Lou Holtz, and Aria howeveryouspellit.

    That's right, they interviewed four coaches, only one of them coached at Alabama.

    The show was mostly about ND, but all three guys picked us. Haha.

    I thought I heard that Holtz picked us as well. Is that right? I guess Espn figures they have to please the ND fans in some way.


    Kind of like how Pollack was praising UGA all week before the SECCG but come Saturday morning, he picked us to win.

    Re: ESPN team has its marching orders - diss Bama...

    Honestly, since ND has the NBC deal, it would seem they might prefer to shine the light on Alabama.
    The only time I watch ESPN is when I am working out at the gym, and I have seen discussions about whether Alabama is a dynasty or not, where Saban ranks among the all time greats, how dominant Alabama's defense has been to have ranked where it has the last several years, and basically, just how we are the best program around.
    I mean, it's not like ESPN ignores us. But, they have done these specials on us three of the last four years. It is understandable they might give Notre Dame a little more air time.

    and, no I am not watching what is on now.

    I haven't heard who Lou picked. He knows deep down who the best team is.

    Desmond Howard has been the most honest. He was shaking his head at times when the others were lathering it on thick for the Irish. When they droned on about Golson he said to compare him to AJ was ridiculous. Said he never remembered AJ bein yanked in 5 games so the team wouldn't lose. I thought he was the most honest in the early show.
