    Re: ESPN team has its marching orders...

    ESPN is just bad. Just watching their breakdowns. They wer talking about the UA aTm game. They first showed the play where Manziel gets sacked in the 4th qtr and was talking about how the UA defense was confusing him with the DB coverage. Now understand there was only 4.5 minutes left on the game clock in the 4th. Next the talking idiots go on and say how well he adjusted to it as he game went on and showed a play from the 1st qtr. Plain and simple the2nd half he was not good, but they are doing everything they can to make UA look not s good as advertised.

    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?
    Since the pre-game is a separate show, you can always delete it if the ND lovefest is too much to stomach.

    We have more TVs sticking around than I like to think of. Our big plasma which is in our living room and is tied into the home theater sound system seldom gets turned on. Here, in the study, where my primary computer lives, is really my primary watching area. The TV here is, looking at it, about a 50" Sony Bravia. The set out in the other end is a smaller Toshiba, but that's where the family cat hangs out, so I'm sure he loved having company for an hour and a half...

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

    In 24 hours. The talking of the leprechauns beating the Crimson Tide will end. Period. You heard it from me first. The game will be a repeat of the 2012 Iron Bowl!

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

    Its funny how they keep comparing Gholson to Manziel when he compares more favorably to Michigans Robinson. Not a very accurate passer but can hurt you with his feet if the pocket collapses. The bad news for ND is that he is about the same passing as Robinson but not as good running.

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

    I said this in another thread, I say it in the PF threads, and I'll say it here:

    ESPN does their job if you go talk to your friends about them. Period. Marketing says that a happy customer will only tell a few people while an unhappy customer will tell about 14 people on average. Media outlets know this and accept that negative word of mouth produces more tuners than positive comments.

    Herein lies 6 pages (so far) of ESPN doing their job. Or rather, we're doing it for them.

    I thought the "Experts" segment was good.It was better than the Road to the Bcs segments, which were ND infomercials. Jesse Palmer was defending Alabama as was Desmond. Say what you will Desmond knows his stuff and usually doesn't care who it offends. Even Lou Holtz was giving Bama props, though you could tell he didn't like it when everyone started pointing out Nd's weaknesses. I even laughed at a few of his jokes.

    Re: ESPN team has its marching orders...

    The Bama show yesterday was more ND than Bama the ND show was ND. Ok I get it they went undefeated Teo lost the Heisman because ESPN wanted Deliverence Banjo Boy so they owe then.

    Hurbie & Mark have been fair to Bama all year I can live with that & get what I expect from the others.

    At least Fox is not carrrying it they missed showing a kick off because the sideline reporter had the Coach's attention. Guess the just had one camera.

    Trust me after we win tonight all you are going to hear is how they knew it all along how good Bama was. Having the reporters salivating over the ND players is a good thing.

    Can I get a Honey Badger! The best name in CFB to its a mauling folks.

    I'm soaking up all the coverage...good bad indifferent...it's all good.

    We spent too many years pre-Saban out of the national discussion, I'm loving being the center of attention.

    Re: ESPN team has its marching orders...

    its in ESPNs best interest to hype up ND as much as possible. the game is on their channel and you have a 10 point underdog in this game. the event never lives up to the hype.

    Re: ESPN team has its marching orders...

    It'll be interesting to see how the coverage goes today. I posted the thread last night in disgust at the first five minutes or so. In retrospect, it's clear that they had been told to say everything good about Notre Dame possible in order to raise interest among people who may have assumed a guaranteed win for Bama...
