We have absolutely got to avoid turnovers like those muffed punts. It cost us in the Orange Bowl too. If we have more than one turnover, I don't like our chances.
I'm in grad school at VT after undergrad and a victory lap at OSU. Obviously I was rooting for Ohio State. What a disaster. I look forward to an absolute annihilation next year that makes the Wisconsin game look like a pillow fight.
I drove 4,500 miles to be there, it made the win even better.
Why does everyone act like Eugene and Pasadena are like Akron and Cleveland? It's a 13 hour drive for the Ducks too.
75% of Alabama doesn't have internet.
You said it yourself: "I can't wait to watch College Final." Point goes to Mark.
DJ BYRNES STAND UP! You called it. Warren Gamaliel Harding FTW.
A lot to learn indeed, but you could almost see it happening in real time during the second half. This was a needed reality check before conference play starts. It won't be the last they get, but it's a start. I am generally on the more cynical side of things when it comes to poor performances but I'm happy with the effort in the second half.
Thad should be proud of the second half effort, and you could tell in the second half his team realized they could have won that game. They'll hopefully be more confident and hungry for those wins in the coming weeks and months.
I have the same problem. Google and my cookies must not realize I only visit MGoBlog to wallow in an ocean of tears.
Maybe (hopefully) you're right.
Do I? Does one loss for defending national champion Florida State knock them below us?
1) Alabama loses to Auburn or SEC East champion;
2) Oregon loses to Oregon State or Pac-12 South champion;
3) Florida State loses to Florida and Georgia Tech;
4) Mississippi State loses to Mississippi;
5) TCU loses to Texas or Iowa State, and, Baylor loses to Texas Tech or Kansas State.
Not to mention taking care of business against Michigan and Wisconsin/Minnesota. It's obviously an unpopular opinion but I just don't see it happening. I want to believe we'll make it but I'm not confident, and I for one will channel my rage not at any selection committee, but squarely at our own team for failing to dispatch what has been proven week after week to be a vastly inferior opponent.
Woof is right
I saw, "Italics from Mobile" and thought you meant Mobile, Alabama, and wondered if this was some story about what Nick Saban thinks of italics.
Imagine what upending the SEC east leader this weekend will do for our playoff chances!
"I believe luck is a concept invented by the weak to explain their failures." - Ron Swanson. I think the same goes for superstition.
Careful, 2-7 Iowa State > Iowa.
I'll never understand that turnover (mistakenly snapping like the QB is under center when he's lining up for shotgun) - don't you think you'd know if there were hands in that particular place ready for the snap?
Thank you, here's to a good game coming up.
DJ, I'm sure you're coming up with some mind-blowing prose to describe this one. How many times will the phrase, "Almighty Cleveland Browns" pop up in tomorrow's Skull Session?
