    I remember the Miami Hurricanes had a conflict with the Irish back in the late 80s near the tunnel at ND Stadium. I need to find a clip of that action.

    Fast forward to 2:40. It's not great, but all they had back then. 1988.

    I thought the stare down was absolutely moronic. It gave me a sick feeling from the start.
    HAHA..Yeah your Boys definitely stirred up the hornets nest from the get-go with that stare down..Good luck next year..If Coach Kelly stays with y'all..I have a feeling we'll have a rematch in the future..

    PS..As you can tell from this thread that we have a name for that "deer in the headlight" look..We call it "Processed"...

    Flash Back. That was the tunnel scene I was thinking about. A little more engaging back then. Ole Brent was a much younger.

    Haha yeah. That's when, at halftime, Lou told our ND boys that if UM wanted to fight, to leave Jimmy Johnson for him.

    Lou would have gotten killed.

    One of my friends was a student at ND during Holtz's years. I had the opportunity to attend a few games in South Bend with my friend during those years - sat in the student section, attended the pep rallies, partied at the 'Backer, etc. Holtz seems like an idiot now, but he was a real motivator back then. I was a huge fan of his, even if I never liked the Irish.

    Well, he did play LB at Kent ST. Of course, Saban played DB there. Both of them would do well to stay in their weight classes, though...

    Just an observation but I really thought it was dumb on their part.

    I like the event staff trying not to laugh as the bama players streamed almost single file out of the locker room past the stare down.

    DISCLAIMER: I hereby reserve the right to discuss any game on the Alabama schedule I wish, at any time during the season, as I am not a part of the Crimson Tide football program. I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. 2009-2014, crimsonaudio

    That was my thought exactly, It looked like a high school team compared to the Tide.
