It's been a great weekend, can't for the next one. Reading around I see people talking about the media picking Florida. If you're thin skinned, I'd just avoid the media altogether then because they've been picking Florida to beat us for the past few weeks. It's not been subtle either. I love it. This team has responded greatly to being the underdog. Like Coach Bryant said in another thread, it was the exact same way in '92. According to the media back then, Miami and their flashy, high point scoring would have no issue dismantling the Tide.
We'll see what happens this time around, but you have to know, the average person is an idiot. Flashy athletics and points with little defense impresses the average person, while the type of ball we play appeals to purists and people who can appreciate sound defense and a tough running game. It happens in most sports (Take a Phoenix vs Detroit or San Antonio comparison). People that really know the game know that Alabama has more than a small chance to not only win, but do it in dominating fashion.
What I am getting at is, don't let articles that are written by and aimed to cater to idiots get to you.
