Bert is trying to make a game of it.  21-14.  Bet he gets tripped up.

Bama struggling but they look pretty solid on O IMO, their defense is average compared to what they usually are. Northwestern is getting smashed by Cal.

You would think after the Iron Bowl that Alabama would have worked on defending every return possible.

Aparently not

I can't tell if Sims ('Bama's QB) looks so hefty because of the padding or if he's just stout.  Based on his arms, I'm leaning toward the latter.  He also seems to be deceptively fast.

Edit - too many mmmms in his name.

Dana Holgorsen needs to come to grips and or embrace his male pattern baldness. Major Chester situation going on there. Roll Mountaineers though.

When tOSU struggles vs an 8-5 team: "lol overrated."

When Bama struggles vs a 4-8 team: "That's just early season jitters. SEC! SEC!"

Hypocrites.

What I have not seen is the infamous 'virtual field goal line'

FCS South Dakota State seems to be giving Mizzou a tough time. They're only trailing by 3.   21-18

bad PI call there

Hey guys, anyone know a link to watch alabama vs wv online? If any of you have seen my recent posts in other forum topics, my cable crapped out on me. I am writing a paper for class next week and need some good football to watch, and that game is pretty close right now.

I forgot i had to create a new profile for my cable provider, but it ended up working. Thanks, even though it sounded like you are insinuating that i am an idiot. :)

Alabama's offense not looking that great.  Kind of surprising, given the steady leadership of Lane Kiffin.

So they give Bama bs 15yd late hit penalty but boy when it is the other way around they just let it go

Yeah that helmet to helmet over the middle on WVUs last third down was ridiculously missed.

Bama + zebras = Still mediocre. 

The way they're playing, A&M will go into their house and beat them again. This time by more than 1 possession.

I think Bama is missing AJ more than they care to admit.

Northwestern is only down by 7 and has a 3rd and 10.

I want to flip over to the WVU game the Cal/NW game is getting interesting.

sb97's picture

NW has scored 17 straight to close it to 31-24

elitesmithie's picture

I think watching Bama "struggle" should ease some of our concerns about the issues of starting a new QB. Of course, I personally, would have given the ball to Yeldon 40 times and call it a day.

If OSU was in Bama's position, there is absolutely no way they would stay at #2 with this performance, but Bama will likely get (another) pass and undeservingly remain at that #2 spot.

It wouldn't surprise me if OSU dropped either (not that it really matters this early) even though they did what they were supposed to do and covered the spread.

Yeah, the regular ones are much better. Too much white and the gold doesn't seem to be the right shade.

FSU looks bored, even at 37-31. Not a good look for a defending champ. I'm not sure how good Okie State is, but I suspect 9-4, 8-5.
