Lost in all the mess about how poorly the Tide played is the fact that we beat a team from Louisiana...
So suck on that, Les Miles. Haha.
Anyway, I have to admit that I was disappointed with how poorly our offense...and defense...performed. All in all though, we didn't allow any touchdowns, and only 2 field goals. I believe that, once the team got two special teams touchdowns in the first quarter, they took their foot off the gas and just kinda sleep-walked through the rest of the ballgame. I guess it's best to go ahead and get a game like this out of the way...and maybe have to suffer through another one next week...before the conference season starts. Regardless of how pitiful Arkansas has looked, they're still gonna give us a helluva fight at home. They always do.
Brandon Fanney was all over the field on Saturday, along with Hightower and McClain. Arenas was a one man wrecking crew on special teams. The offensive line looked pathetic without Davis, Big Dre, and Mike Johnson at their correct positions. I would almost prefer to keep everybody out until the Arkansas game, just to make sure they're healthy. We can beat Western Kentucky with subs...as long as the guys play smart.
Arenas got his clock cleaned on a hit later in the game, and still tried to go out on the field after suffering a possible concussion. His teammates had to hide his helmet from him. Haha. Read more here.
Ian has a pretty good article about how the Tide needs to use this game as a wake up call. Couldn't say it better myself.
Aside from the game, we got a bit of good news on the recruiting trail. Michael Bowman, the top wide receiver in the state of Georgia, has committed to Alabama. We'll see how long it lasts, cause he really wants to go to Georgia, but he's frustrated that they haven't offered him since he's having some grade issues. Seems a lil bit ridiculous to me...but if they offer him late, he may be gone. I would LOVE to have him opposite Julio next year. 6'4" 215lbs and looks great.
Coach Saban has also offered a scholarship to Joe McKnight's little brother. Read more here.
Anyone hoping for a CBS game against Arkansas might be crazy. That weekend we also have Auburn vs LSU, Tennessee vs Florida, Vandy vs Ole Miss (this game is looking very interesting), Georgia vs Az State, and Mississippi State vs Georgia Tech. I'd be happy with an 11:30 kickoff on Raycom. We could end up with an ESPN matchup though...or ESPN2. We shall see.

Although the game didn't go as planned it was still an awesome atmosphere. And Mclain is a beast. Hey and I'm 2-0 in our fantasy football league. RTR # posted by walker : 3:14 PM
