Skip succeeds again.

TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
Maybe he should be reminded who the #1 rush defense is. ND still has not played against a team with the size and speed like ours. Some say they have with Stanford, but IMO thats just more than a tad off. JMHO, not saying Im right, its JMHO.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
People have to realize it's almost never personal with these professional trollers.
Furthermore, if ND gets talked up and we get talked down, that does nothing but help us.
I just hope the players see all of the talk like this.
Well rested and pissed off = #15
Roll Tide guys

The Dynasty is Here!
Skip Bayless has made a career of making absurd claims to get press coverage and is almost never correct
Never Gets Old
you don't get it....Bayless is a professional troll. He gets paid to be the opposite view 90% of the time.
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
Correct. Skip Bayless has never had an original thought in his life...he is feed what to say and most of the time it is always the less than accurate side of the argument. He is suppose to be "entertaining".
Skip predicted that AJ McCarron would be ineffective against LSU in last year's national championship. He was wrong there. i think he is wrong again.
he also was the guy that said AJ would not start for one Big 12 team last year. Or was that Cowherd? Anyways, doesn't matter. Isn't Kansas and Iowa St. in the Big12?
I was thinking the same thing. The only reason we won't have 100 yards total rushing by halftime is because we are airing it out and are having success at it.
Skip Bayless is as worthless as "tits on a Boar Hog" and knows less about what Alabama can do or can't do. He is so "FOS"
and any one that pays attention to what he says is as stupid as he is! He says all kinds of stuff, just throws it off the wall. If he's right he's a genius, if he wrong, nobody cares or remembers any way. He & his buddy Stephen A. Walker are both idiots and total waste of time on the TV or the radio.
Man I hope every sports journalist north of the Mason Dixon is saying this as loud as they can for the next 3 weeks. I hope the ND players are watching TV and reading Online. I hope they believe their press. I hope their preparation is not as strong as a result.
I think this kind of talk could have an emotional effect early in the game (but not the whole game), but the greater effect IMO will be if it affects their effort in preparation for the game. Plus, it should motivate our players , as if Saban needed any help, to prepare to the very best of their ability. Perfect, would pay Bayless and the rest of the national media clowns cash money to keep spewing this as loud as long as they can.
Simply said, early emotion can change things early in the game, but probably won't last the entire game. Less than 100% effort in preparation in the weeks leading up to the game will definitely last the whole game.
So keep spewing Skip, Forde and assorted friends. Keep spewing loud and clear.
We heard this same crap before the Texas game and we all know what happened
They have a good rush defense, so we will have to work hard to rush for 100 yards in the first half.
Talk is free, and words coming out of the mouth are not constrained in any way. However, once you line up and get that first pop in the mouth, the talking stops. Mr. Bayless is once again getting into an area he is ill equipped to discuss in an unbiased way.
Several mediocre teams got more than that and UA for cerain will and I'll put my money on it and I'm sure he won't.

Skip has probably never worn a jock in his life,he has probably sniffed a few thou.
IF IT FEELS GOOD,YOU AIN'T DOING IT RIGHT!
