    It's called big boy football Nix, learn to play it. I thought you had to be smart to go to that school.

    I was listening to Bill King this morning. I don't know who the guy was Bill was interviewing, some ND beat reporter, and the guy still claims ND has the best front 7 Bama's seen all year. I think ND is at best a middle of the pack SEC team. They lose to Georgia, LSU, South Carolina, and aTm.

    In 2011 ND beat Navy 56-14. Maybe that's the score it takes to get dominated. 42-14 is just a woodshedding.

    Nix is getting annihilated on ESPN radio....

    if you've given up 9 offensive TD's all year then give up 6 in one game you've been dominated
    if you give up 4 80+ yard TD drives after not giving one up all season you've been dominated

    perhaps Nix meant "we weren't dominated, we were embarrassed" and got partially misquoted? I'll give him the benefit of the doubt

    I'm still not sure they know what went on last night. It hasn't sunk in. They weren't in quicksand. Bama just made it seem like it.

    Thank goodness we didn't dominate them. If we had it would have been 100-0.

    If he watches the tape he'll realize real quick they got dominated.

    I don't think he'll want to do that.

    Any of the Notre Dame players or fans who emphasize the singularity of last night's event are just trying to save face. If Alabama and Notre Dame played five times, Alabama would win five times.

    Nix is partially right. There was a good article on Bama's inside zone blocking scheme and how good our guys are at running it. If it's executed properly it always works.

    Even though we're thought of as a power running team blocking technique is what our guys, especially BJ, do so well. If you look at the replay you'll see that our guards don't really double team as much as they nudge or brush block on their way up-field to block LB's. Our RB's are taught to run slightly parallel to the line of scrimmage then cut up-field into the hole.

    First, congrats on the win. I'm still pretty sick, and probably shouldn't be reading your site. In any event, we got stomped, and I am mostly upset with the coaching staff/game plan. You all played your best game of the season, yet showed why you deserve three out of the last four.

    That being said, why do you care what our players said? Nix is a competitor. He didn't make an excuse. You are reaching here. This surely does not compare to saying if Colt had played, it would have been different, or if we played a different player it would have been different.

    Whatever. I take refuge in the fact that I don't think anyone could have beaten you last night. I am glad that our team still fought through in the fourth quarter and didn't stop playing, and have hope for the future. Maybe hoping to see you guys back next year in Pasadena.
