It has been reported by various media outlets that Stanford offensive tackle Chris Marinelli had some pretty tough words for the Notre Dame team and their fans on the eve of their nationally-televised game tomorrow afternoon (11:30am PST).
Marinelli supposedly does not have much respect for the Notre Dame defense, pointing out (correctly) that the the Fighting Irish have one sack for 200 blitzes this year.
Marinelli, speaking in an interview to CardinalReport.com, also said: “We are going out there to mash them up, and that’s all there is to it.”
Let me say…I sure hope so! The thing about trash-talking is, we gotta come out and batter them now. We have to live up to
While the Athletic Department tried to clean up the mess earlier today, the truth is, I’m kind of happy to see Marinelli say that. He was a bad-ass already, and saying this only confirms it. More importantly, it shows the truth about this team. The Cardinal’s got some fire in its belly; it’s hungry and it is relentless.
Predictions for tomorrow?
