    ND's post game presser

    All kudos to ND for giving Bama all the credit in their loss but did you ever see players that looked like they had their butt whipped? All of them had bruises on their faces. They looked like they had been in a knock down drag out.

    Here is the link in case you missed it.

    Re: ND's post game presser

    I thought their comments were pretty classy even after a tough loss like that. But Te'o saying Alabama was the better team "tonight"? How bout the better team period. The media hyped this guy up all year long giving him everything other than the Heisman. He was nowhere to be found tonight other than missing 3-4 tackles at least. He seems like a good guy and I wish him luck in the NFL but like Corso said afterwards, this Alabama team could play Notre Dame 20 times and beat them 20 times in a row.

    I agree. Te'o was not the only one saying that Alabama was the better team "tonight". I thought their players were classy in their post game interview, but they could have left off the word "tonight". It could be that arrogance was involved.

    Bama owed Notre Dame Big Time for prior years under Coach Bryant.

    I feel better about this win than last year's win against LSU.

    Yeah, you're right. I guess it just stood out for me more when he said. Probably because the hype machine has been in full affect for him. I don't wish him any ill at all. I hope he has a successfull NFL career. But I admit it was nice to see the hype machine come to a screeching halt tonight.

    I don't think that they were necessarily saying "tonight ONLY". All their lives they've viewed Ws and Ls as going to whoever is the better team that day. That's just how it's always been worded.

    Even if this game was to be played 100 times, Bama, being as prepared as they were would win every time... and Te'o knows this too. He knows that ND isn't anywhere near where they thought they were.

    It doesn't really matter if they said, "tonight," "this season," or "ever." Everyone one on this planet that saw that game knows that ND team would NEVER beat this Bama team. Ever.

    Te'o looked like he had been slapped silly, literally.

    Pretty sure that it's typical player speak to say "tonight"; no player is going to go around saying, "Man, they're just better than us. We would never have a chance in 100 against those guys!"
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    Well, "tonight" is all that matters in the record or history books.
    Besides, what else would they say? "Yeah, we had no business even being in the same state or stadium as Alabama?"

    "They did not dominate us," Nix said. "We just didn't play our ballgame, man. We didn't make tackles. Everything we did or had lined up should have worked."

    I think they believe "tonight" was an aberration. Sad.

    I'll let them think that all they want. The crystal trophy is going to Tuscaloosa. If they didn't play "their" game last night, what were they preparing for with the month and a half they had?

    These are competitive young men so I don't really fault them for saying "tonight". Their pride is hurt.
