    Re: The "Stare Down" Was A Huge ND Pre-Game Mistake In My Opinion

    It all reminded me of what Houston Nut said of Saban and Bama..."Alabama looks like Gladiators when they come on the field." ND just had a good look of it from the get go.

    I posted a clip from Rudy earlier. I know it was a movie but the part where they line up and stare down their opponent as they exit their locker room is identical to Monday night.

    That was Josh Magee a WR from Hoover. I don't think it hit ND until they got to see Alabama up close that they were in for a long night.

    I thought they just shared the same tunnel as well. My impression at the time was that Bama was loose and ND was tight.

    Amateur video from the tunnel... Notre Dame was chanting, hooting, and hollaring at our players - many of whom, by the way, heckled back or at least danced past.

    A little bit of dancing caught on the televised side,

    Looks like fun.

    Apparently he injured himself, because he was a major non-factor in the outcome of the game. We hardly heard his name called all night.

    Does anyone have a video clip of the stare down..I've looked & haven't found it..I thought it was awesome..
    Enjoy the Tunnel from a different camera angle. Sounds like ND players are chanting defense--guess this was suppose to intimidate. AJ is one of the last players out.

    Right now, there are 3 categories of football: college, pro, and a thin layer between the two occupied solely by Alabama.

    I watched both teams warm-up and remarked to my wife how intimidating we looked compared to them. Not that I was surprised at all. Only thing those poor domers could come up with after they saw us on the field the first time was some false bravado. Then nothing else left for them after they felt our first hits. Reminds me of what that idiot Fran said the first time he faced UT when he was at Bama, remarking how during team warm-ups he wanted those other players over there. About as stupid as Kelly saying what he did Monday about not showing up for the second half. Seeing those domer players penned back there in the tunnel makes me think of the poor souls about to go out to face the lions.

    Theismann is a good guy. I got to work with him last year on a project in Georgia. He respects Alabama football; he said that he knows Coach Saban. Told me that after he was fired from Monday nite football that he got offered the job to work color commentator on college football prime time games; decided not to accept it. Said initially he was going to play for Lou Holtz at NC State until Ara Parsighian and Notre Dame offered.

    Dude, the stare down SCREWED US. You guys game out doing freaking jumping jacks, loose and ready to battle. We looked like deer in headlights.

    I thought the stare down was absolutely moronic. It gave me a sick feeling from the start.

    That is what I was thinking. Bama seemed to enjoy taking their time coming out.
