08:17 AM ET 12.27 | As Alabama center Barrett Jones recently put it, the Tide has no plan to steer its offensive gameplan clear of Manti Te'o. The idea of scheming away from one player, Jones said, was largely a media creation. Right tackle D.J. Fluker took it one step further when he addressed the media Friday. "Everybody has their own way of (challenging) us," Fluker said. "We're going to go right for him. He's what they call the best of the best, gotta go take it to him." That's been Alabama's style throughout the season. It's why the Crimson Tide threw at Mississippi State's Johnthan Banks and ran at Georgia's Jarvis Jones. Fluker was more inclined to praise an entire unit of Notre Dame's defense than an individual player.

The Tide went right at the Honey Badger in the last BCS NCG, and the results speak for themselves. Maybe that's why he isn't playing anymore.

"As the Philistine Goliath moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell, face down on the ground." YOU CAN DO IT IRISH...!

LMFAO, "Honey Badger", you say???? Mathieu played at 5'9" and 180 pounds. you can't compare a Cornerback to a linebacker like Te'o. Also, why are you talking about and comparing last year's NCG to this year'??? Completely different game and year!!

"The sluggish and dying carcass that was Rome, moaned as it tried to move and fight against the younger, faster, and more energetic German tribes, who slowly and systematically dismantled the dying empire which had been reeling for years."

YOU CAN DO IT, ALABAMA!!!

At the very least it drove the Honey Badger to use the chronic...um chronically....Or playing for Les Miles did

Matthieu's problems were his own. He brought it on himself. But, I know you're just funning.

Best way to go at an active L.B. is run at him and put a big body on him.

The entire state is already in hock. You meant more in hock. But, this will put them back in black!

Disagree. I actually found it right on and very timely.

And it is good to see some smack talk for the NCG.
