There are plenty of Bama-Kentucky laughs after the jump…

Random Thoughts Meandering Through My Head

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:

  • We’ve all been extremely critical of John Parker Wilson over the years, but give the man the game ball for his performance. He went 13 of 16 for 205 yards and 1 TD, managing the game better than anybody could’ve predicted. The yardage and TD pass don’t shock me, but it usually came from a 15 of 35 performance with very little ground support.
  • Hats off to Georgia and their fans for not giving up. 99% of the stadiums in America would’ve been half empty after a 31-0 deficit at the half, but the Blackout crowd stuck around and played a factor.
  • I don’t mean to take away from a good performance from A.J. Green, but can the critics of Julio stop claiming how much better Green is compared to Jones? Julio had more yardage with a TD and 0 turnovers. Green made a rookie mistake, and Jones played a very good game. Green is still an amazing player, but let’s relax on the glorification of the guy.
  • Matthew Stafford is probably the best overall QB in the SEC right now. He had some rough times, but he carried that team down the field without the help of Moreno to score 23 second half points on offense. I’m not the first to say this, but he really does remind me of John Elway.
  • The Defensive Line was great again, although Georgia’s Freshman Center certainly held his own. It was nice to keep Moreno a non-factor for a majority of the night.

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.

Saban Sends Message

Not much needs to be added, considering I agree with all that was said by Coach Saban:

How’d This Get Past Bama Fans?

Not much going on today. I have a few errands to run, so I’ll leave you with an amazingly good video of Saban during spring practice. So go get your straw hats and gray Alabama vests and enjoy!

Why Be A Fan of Saban?

Because the guy is crazy nuts about football, which actually fits pretty well in this state. Here’s an old story from his Dolphin days:

Miami Dolphins coach Nick Saban planned to wait out Hurricane Wilma by watching game film at work. His wife said no.
Nick Saban, coaching against the Bucs on Oct. 16, rode out Hurricane Wilma at home. Now he and the Dolphins must get ready for the Saints in Baton Rouge, La., Sunday.

“I tried to escape yesterday before the wind started blowing so I could come here where we had a generator and watch film and work during the storm,” Saban said Tuesday at the team’s complex. “And Terry politely said, `If you leave the house now, I’m calling the cops and telling them to arrest you.’

“So that was basically the end of that.”

Is it Pete Carroll braves the back alleys at night awesome? No, but it is still cool if you’re an Alabama fan.

Was Nick Saban Kyle Ardoin’s “Jeremiah Wright”?

No, because he’d actually have to be you know…. involved somehow to actually be worth mentioning in a political race and not a man that brought that town out of the sports doldrums. From 2007:

Is it old news? Well yeah, but I just recently found this stupid video, and did a little research (plus I was lacking a topic of the day). This video was brought to you by the same campaign that sported these political signs. THE QUAD:
