Heard a lot going into this game that with the Big 12 crew, there probably wouldn't be many holding or PI calls due to the pass-heavy tendency of the Big12. They seemed to let A LOT of stuff go, with just as many of the no-calls benefiting Bama as well. Hell of a game, but when you go 3 and out a billion times in a row, and have an over-sized defense, you don't give those big-uns enough time to rest and they got nothing left at the end of the game.
I think every team showboats a little, but Watson has been a complete prick tonight.
Before this game, I had a lot of respect for Watson, or at least I thought person I thought Watson was. He's been a preening buttnugget all night long, and I was shocked to see it. Really shocked to see the show boating and crap he's been doing tonight, not to mention claiming he's the best player in the country.
The D has been playing great. The lack of offensive production is just keeping them on the field too much with little to no rest. You just can't keep a potent offense in check like that. They've produced 2 picks, it's hard to ask much more than that from them, honestly.
They have looked absolutely AWFUL this entire game. I'm not sure what in the world is going on, honestly.
Allen and Foster on the defensive side were limping around, too. This game has pissed me off from the start.
I'm about one notch below an aneurysm at this point. Why we keep running dumbass quick outs to the WR, delayed QB runs, etc when we can just give it to our big backs and watch them run through people is beyond me. That last TD we just got, two consecutive runs with Harris, voila. Kiffin has done a great job overall at Bama, but sometimes, I just don't understand wtf he's thinking.
The thing that's the most frustrating about how we're playing right now is the fact they're calling so many designed runs for Hurts. Games like these are where your key players end up with stupid injuries. I already saw Ruben Foster limp off the field, Jared Allen was a little gimpy, and running Hurts so many times is just asking for it.
Our O-Line is getting pushed around, and on defense we're getting little to no pressure. Not sure what the hell is going on, haha.
I think they found these refs out in the parking lot before the game. Missed calls on both sides, though. Harris got spun 180 degrees by his facemask earlier, holding on both sides, etc. This might also be the worst I've seen Bama play this year.
Good catch, lol. 28/37!!
Work has been kicking my teeth in as of late, lol. Just got back from a week in Orlando and actually had some time to breathe today!
Sorority girls wear panties at OSU? That's just a waste of time... for everyone.
Throwing a bad pick makes any praise put on you prior to that all "overhype"?
The pick WAS an awful throw but he's 28/27 for 347yds and 4 TDs (averaging 9.4 ypc). Oh yeah, he's also got 11 carries for 100 yds and a TD.
I honestly think he was "aiming" for the guy's chest, but that doesn't matter since his helmet hit the guy directly in the face. No idea why this wasn't called targeting, it should have been.
So, according to your comments, Alabama would be 0 - 8 right now if not for the refs fixing every single game. Yes, they SHOULD have called targeting on that hit on the kick returner, but come on, man.
My fav Verne comment was "Trevor Knight rushes for ANOTHER first down!"
Only problem was, it was 3rd and 20 and he was 3 yards short of the first stick. Not only was he short, he was 14 yards short. lol
It WAS a stupid penalty, but it was the correct call. You can't shove a QB in their face, lol.
A break-action 12 gauge shotgun is a very "simple" thing, too, but you won't catch me wanting to stand in front of one. Just sayin.
