Do not suck. It is embarrassing.
Feel it, circa 2008. Not a good place to be. I'd commiserate more but we have recruiting to consider.
This is the biggest fear most fans have during bowl season - your team just doesn't showing up. In our case we have shown we can recover but I remember when we didn't.
If the players arent ready at this point, our fate is sealed. Football games are won during preparation not by getting excited right before kickoff. Too many distractions at bowl site to prepare. Hopefully, ND had our attention from day one.
yeah, hope we didn't wait to "get serious" until December 29th like the Irish would like us to believe they did.
THIS....and LSU's game will be GOOD for us.
You can bet, Coach Saban will be reminding our team about how 2, really good SEC teams went out and played like poo. Both maybe thinking they were the better team, yet did not come to show it. Never Miss a Opportunity!
Coach Saban did his best I am sure to prep the team. If the players dont buy in, there's not much that can be done. Without the hunger of an underdog role, sometimes players take things for granted. If coach Saban cant get it done, no one can.
Hope Saban is telling the guys to let this game tonight be a Lesson to always Respect Your Opponent!
I think we are going to be alright guys. We know we aren't immortal and we will show up like I expect we always do in big games. Florida lost their game all the way around. I usually cheer for most SEC teams in bowl games, but I'm not one if those fans who beat their chest chanting "SEC" "SEC chant after we beat non conference schools. I will honestly say though Florida really embarrassed themselves and the SEC tonight. It wasn't just about players being excited to be there, it was terrible third down execution and i can't say i have seen a worst called game by a coaching staff in my 23 years of life. Starting with not running the football which was floridas bread and butter this year, but the thing that got me was the onside kick to open the half. That was playing scared and saying hey guys we can't beat them straight up tonight. Also driskel was horrendous, no pocket presence. Sorry for being so long, just ready for my flight to south beach Friday.
If the team listens to Saban they will be ready. I have never heard CNS diss an opponent.
I WANNA SEE SABANS PREGAME SPEECH
