I doubt the drunkest Kool-Aid drinker expected that first half performance. Best resume thus far, although I hope we can keep it going.
A very talented team deserving of their ranking. Still, I do wonder about the amount of points they’ve given up to two of the worst SEC offenses.
Someone needs to make a movie about that game. They could get Sonny Seiler to be in it! Wouldn’t that be original?
4. Ole Miss
Heck, they deserve a little love this week. First SEC win since sliced bread was created.
Tebow tried to toss his helmet in disgust, but an Ole Miss defender ran up and swatted it away before it could pass the 31 yard line.
Did Tony Franklin’s comments after the game remind anyone else of Silas from The Da Vinci Code?
The Ole Miss victory looks better, although I am still not sure about having Vanderbilt ranked in the Top 20 just yet. Prove me wrong Commies, prove me wrong…
Rich Brooks figures the best way to attract Kentucky fans to Tuscaloosa is the promise of a shirtless Patrick Patterson leading the team onto the field.
Let’s make a golf comparison: Jon Crompton is a Driver in a Putter’s world. Little nuances of the game don’t matter as long as you can get the ball there as hard as you possibly can.
10. South Carolina
The game wasn’t as close as the score indicated. I am not sure how the game in Oxford will go for the Gamecocks.
11. Mississippi State
MSU caught LSU asleep for part of the game. Their defense has given up 38 and 34 points in back-to-back games.
I see Arkansas fans waking up early for their football games… the ones that are televised.
If you had told me we’d be 5-0 after the Georgia game, I probably would’ve ran screaming about a loose crazy man bothering me with wild allegations about Alabama football. But here we are as the #2/#4 team in the nation. Can you say signature win? I think Saban just wrote his name on Athens. The players worked hard, and deserve to enjoy this victory while they can.
Celebrate until the Kentucky film arrives
So here are a few thoughts/observations about Saturday’s game:
I could say more, but there is so much to get ready for this week. The Kentucky Wildcats come to town, and they are far from pushovers. They ride into Tuscaloosa 4-0, having scored just as many points on Western Kentucky as Alabama did. Respect Rich Brooks, respect their Defense, and respect their fans.
That 2nd half almost drove me insane, but I’ll take a 41-30 SEC road win against a Top 5 team any day of the week!
Scott Cochran is my new hero, because he called it! More to come later, because I’ve got the rest of the night to celebrate!
Who’s afraid of a big ole Blackout?
Well, Lee Corso has picked us, which usually leads to bad things. This only adds to yet another list of reasons as to why I think we’ll lose… much like last year.
only pic I could find
I know some are feeling fairly confident, and I certainly don’t blame them. We have nothing to lose this week because we have all chalked this up as a lose before the season started. But, I still prefer coming in as an underdog if we are going to have a shot.
Reasons for my gut to say Alabama wins
Reasons for my gut to say Alabama losses
All things considered, I’m giving the edge to Georgia. Then again, I wouldn’t be surprised by any result in this game, so this could be yet another memorable experience. After all, Ole Miss is giving Florida a game, and Oregon State did beat USC. Shall another Top 5 go down? I hope so, but I think Georgia wins by about a Touchdown. 24-17.
Who’s ready for a Crimson and White Roundtable? Alabama Gameday is, as they host this week’s CWR. Let’s get down to bus-nass (business for those of you who don’t understand what I just said):
What are your feelings on Alabama’s current position in the polls? Are we overrated? Underrated? Just right?
Given all of Alabama’s accomplishments thus far, it makes sense. If we beat Georgia (big if), then the high ranking we get will always be deserved.
What aspect of the game did Alabama control that shocked you the most? What aspect of the game was Alabama dominated in that shocked you the most?
I was shocked at how well Alabama’s defense played in the redzone. In between redzones, our D wasn’t extremely impressive, but they did shut down the Hogs when it mattered most.
Alabama really looked bad on punt return coverages throughout the game. Sure, it was better in the 2nd half, but every other team we face should have a speedster back there in waiting. We can’t allow easy TDs or easy field position if we are to make it to the next level.
Name your player of the game on Offense. Also name one on Defense.
Is there any doubt that the Offensive player of the game should be Glenn Coffee? The guy averaged over 16 YPC against Arkansas!
Javier Arenas should get the Defensive game ball for that returned INT for the TD, as well as his ability to be all over the field.
Alabama has dominated the first quarter, outscoring opponents 64-0 in the first quarter. How do you think this team will handle its first taste of adversity this season?
That really all depends on John Parker Wilson. We’ve all seen how he’s faltered in key situations, and we all remember the heartache it has caused us all. If he can FINALLY get over the hump and perform well in a big road game, then I’ll be feeling pretty good about this season. I don’t think we’ll beat Georgia, but a good performance could mean good things for the Tide this season. But more on that later…
If JPW gets intimidated by the”BLACKOUT”, then we might as well watch M*A*S*H reruns on TV Land. Hopefully, John Parker will envision Britney Spears every time somebody mentions “BLACKOUT”, so he can simply laugh at every single reference.
When will Mark Richt drive with his newborn in his lap?
Setting aside Georgia, now that the season is well underway, how do you feel Alabama stacks up against what you’ve seen of their big opponents?
Alabama’s Offensive Line should match-up to no less that even with every other team’s Defensive Line. Why? We’re strong, physical, and experienced. If we take care of business against Kentucky and Ole Miss, I am starting to like our chances against Tennessee’s offense (knock on wood)… unless they find a way to totally turn around Crompton and crew.
Not much to say other than the facts. from the Tuscaloosa News:
Junior left guard Mike Johnson, junior fullback Baron Huber, sophomore tight end Preston Dial and walk-on tight end Drew Cummings pulled a driver out of his overturned truck and helped contain an accident scene until police arrived.
The accident, involving a truck and another vehicle, occurred at approximately 12:30 p.m. on Veterans Memorial Parkway, ironically near Kicker Avenue, near American Christian Academy.
“We were in the car and we heard something screeching across the ground,” Johnson said. “We got out of the car and this truck was on its roof.
“Preston went to the driver’s door, Drew went to the passenger’s door. Aaron came out from inside and I was blocking traffic trying to tell everyone not to hit the guy.”
Your team wins in impressive fashion. You feel that no other team in the world could take you down. In fact, anyone who thinks that your team isn’t the best is simply a hater and must be punished! How dare they try and find flaws in our performance!? WE TAKE NAMES AND KICK BUTT!
This type of thought is commonly referred to as “Drinking the Kool-Aid”, which refers to believing what the out of touch fans tell you. We’ve all heard it before, using it daily when it comes to sports. Still, one has to wonder where the heck this term came from?
13 & 0!!! Leigh Tiffin for Heisman!!!
Do the Kool-Aid manufacturers walk around with tin foil hats, claiming that purple men from Saturn killed JFK? Do people who have out of touch views prefer this cool beverage after typing 200 message board posts reflecting their thoughts? Where did this come from!?
My “research” (by research, I mean Google) took me to a strange encyclopedia without any pages (also known as Wikipedia), where I found my answer.
If you’re old enough to remember the Jonestown massacre, which I am not, you may remember the fact that the radical zealot Jim Jones led his followers to their doom. How did he kill them? By serving Kool-Aid laced with potassium cyanide:
The saying “Do not drink the Kool-Aid” now commonly refers to the Jonestown tragedy, meaning “Do not trust any group you find to be a little on the kooky side,” or “Whatever they tell you, do not believe it too strongly.”
Having “drunk the Kool-Aid” also refers to being a strong or fervent believer in a particular philosophy or mission — wholeheartedly or blindly believing in its virtues
Man, I am going to get some crazy Google search hits for this one…
If you happen to have a conversation with an over-zealous fan about how awesome the totally awesome ball boy happens to be, just remember that this term may not resonate the actual accusation you’re trying to make. I doubt anybody would argue with you if you claimed “Hey dude, stop drinking the beverage of death”
In short, uhhhhh………… just……….. just drink a Coke.
Nice victory in the desert. I think they should have enough motivation, but Richt seems to think some black jerseys will make the difference. We’ll see.
I doubt there have ever been so many circumcision and fat jokes made in the same location in the history of mankind.
The Fighting Tigers of Red Stick have a QB after all.
Odd fact: Nick Saban has now beaten Arkansas in 4 different cities (Baton Rouge, Little Rock, Tuscaloosa, and Fayetteville).
The offense did look better, but being outscored 23-7 in the 2nd half usually leads to a loss.
I used this before, but it fits for this moment:
The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need. My name in print. That really makes somebody. Things are going to start happening to me now!- Steve Martin
For such a hyped up game, it ended up being a rather boring affair. Fulmer could be in a world of hurt if he doesn’t turn this around.
8. Ole Miss
Ole Miss fans 2 week ago- “Jevan Snead might just be the best QB in the SEC!”
Ole Miss fans today- “Jevan Snead stinks!”
Battle #2 for in-state domination against Western Kentucky.
10. South Carolina
I wish I could make a funny remark, but I am really at a loss when it comes to this team.
Hey, at least Casey Dick had 3 Touchdown passes. Two of them were to the opponent, but let’s not get worked up about who we’re tossing it to since Arkansas needs something to build from.
12. Mississippi State
Should we start the Croom Death Clock now? Ouch!
John Parker Wilson would like to remind Damario Ambrose of the score. Smack talk can be fun, but be sure you’re on the right side of the score when it happens, ok Damario?
