rather than be more worried about AC salaries, the Eagles and all the unfair obstacles Notre Dame has to winning a Championship, maybe he could have put together a better overall plan and got his players ready and we could have played a closer game and looked like a legit opponent. Instead he came in with all this garbage and left Miami as the laughing stock of college football. Hell, 9 times out of 10 Florida beats Louisville but look what happened that one time. Sad that hes too busy worried about why we cant win a championship, when you had such a wonderful opportunity to show the world what kind of coach and team you can get ready for a big game even when youre inferior to your opponent. 42-14...what a joke....now it all comes together

Dude, I think it's best for you and everyone else if you sit the next couple plays out....
He could have gameplanned a lifetime; that was a good as we could have gotten. Saban really didn't push the issue hard.
Just honestly ask yourself, how many positions on the field did we have superior talent? On offense, TE, and that is a close call. On defense, maybe NT and FS. Teo, in this game, was no better than his alter ego on Bama.
We got whooped. No shame in that.

I almost forgot how awful of a poster merlin was on other boards after he left, then I came here and he reminded me quickly
merlin, do you just post everything that pops into your head?
Honestly you are the worst poster I have ever seen on any board.
Coach D has him beat
That's as good as we could have gotten? You can't be serious.
I'm not saying we should have or would have won, but come on . . . everyone saw how flat ND played right from the start and Herbie and Musberger commented all night long on the missed tackles. There's no way anyone can say with a straight face that "that was as good as we could have gotten."
We're al just dust in the wind.
Merlin just likes to
3 time POTW

Ahh he is a troll them?
Merlin perhaps you can give us a detailed game plan that would have eliminated all our missed tackles and over come what appeared to be Bama's strength advantage. Then countered the fact that they had superior depth and a better secondary. I am all ears as I do not have one and I always like to learn things. Imo you have no clue what the game plan should have been because unless I miss my guess you are not a football coach. I am also guessing that you had no access to the Bama game tapes. I would have done some things differently but I have friend who coached and played for Michigan and he thought we should have dome some thing differently but be did not think that would have kept the game close if we tackled like it was two hand touch. They arm tackled to no end and Motta was physically over matched at times. I do not blame Zeke that just what we all saw watching. You can blame the staff for them being flat but one would have thought with the national title we would not have played flat. I do not think we did I think we just played below our skill level and you can not do that and beat Bama.( I hate Bama btw)

It's talent, period. Look at it by position and by coach. Factor in experience. Mix them all togther and you have 42-14.
Maybe you can just post more picks of the hot chick, that will soften everyone up!
Merlin let me put this nicely, I don't condone bad language (, please crawl back under the rock from where you came.
To the others......I give you fumbuzzled or whatever he calls himself, Irish Impact, rgunner...God Help US!
