Two players (who don't really play) sent home for missing curfew. These guys aren't taking this game seriously. ND wins 27-24. Hate to say it.
AJ & Lacy
T&P to bama
And seniors calling a players meeting because they weren't focused enough, at least according to espn.
Damn we're screwed
All this time down south and you would think Saban would know about the Kryptonite
This sh!te is devastating. Game over.
1 who was red shirting this year and 1 True Freshman who played on Kick Off coverage. You are reaching. OU was ND signature win this year and aTm just destroyed them. Sucks to be a ND fan.
i'd be more concerned if they were not sent home. probably turned in by other players that were there to win the game and not break the rules. i think we'll be alright. i think alot of this is wishful thinking by our enemies. roll tide!
Sucks so bad man. Never has a season I expected to go 7-6/8-5 sucked so bad.
It pains my heart as an Auburn Man to say this, but as long as Saban is there, 98% of the team will be focused on the task at hand. Just the way it is, IMO.
"Get in where you fit in." Life is, Too Short TL;DR
I don't like it at all but Fogtown usually has a pretty good gut feeling about these games. If we have guys missing curfew, the entire team isn't as focused as it should be. I'm not saying we lose but it is worrisome.

This is a telling statement ...........
"“We feel like practice it hasn’t been where it needs to be as far as intensity or as far as focus, or as far as everything,” senior linebacker Nico Johnson said. “So each player took it upon themselves to elevate their game a little bit more and we did yesterday. It was a good practice.”
if Bama plays a clean game & AJ has a solid effort and connects the easy ones, Bama rolls by double digits.
after the team meeting w/ Saban, the team will have all weekend "to get focused."
You're right. #1 football team, #1 graduation rate and working on #1 recruiting class. Really sucks.
3 time POTW
When if and buts are candy and nuts, this world will be one big party. That's a LOT of ifs, buddy.
Bama HAS to establish the run.
Notre Dame HAS to stop it.
Turnover will play a factor and field position. Whoever wins this, will win out.
These are the three keys to the game. Bama's ability to run it against the best front 7 they've seen this year. Turnovers and field position.
Low scoring game. Take the under....it's now 41.
you haven't won anything...bama 4 in graduation rate...and we know about the championships and recruiting.
kelly is a good coach, but nd loses a lot next year...Bama will be better next year...this is what we do.
Not sure if this is a troll or not. Actually this help the team to get refocused. Best thing that could have happen. Only one of the player has even played this year and it was special teams. I am OK with couple of players sent home.
Duke Uconn in 99... I remember that well as I was there in Ybor City.
Pitt ran all over them. lol at best front seven.

I hope you're right. But it's always been my experience that you need to be focused during the practices leading up to the game as opposed to just right before. You play like you practice and you can't just flip a switch.
He's a paid mercenary. Absolute killer.

Notre Dame doesn't loss a lot.. We lose Cierre Wood, Tyler Eifert, Braxston Cave, Mike Golic, Kapron Lewis-Moore, Manti Te'o, and Zeke Motta. Sure, some big players for Notre Dame, but the Irish return Nix and Tuitt on the DL, 3/4 of the secondary, and 3/5 of the OL. Nothing that can't be overcame. To return seven or eight starters on each side of the ball is not what I would consider to be a complete overhaul.

You guys will be irrelevant again in 2 days.
Sheesh at the Domers coming out like you've done something the last thirty freaking years.
I believe Stanford would be considered ND's signature win this year. Who was Bama's, LSU?
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
