When it comes down to it - we did, at least, win the game. But, when you look back on it, we completely gave them the football game. Fumbles, interceptions, penalties and just poor gameplay in general. But, after playing football for 6 straight weeks, you almost had to expect it.
Kentucky is a good football team. Their defensive line is a beast, and, even though we won the line of scrimmage, they kept us on our toes the whole ballgame. Kinda weird that I'm talking good about their defensive line when Glen Coffee had 218 yards rushing against them. Haha.
Speaking of Glen, he's now carried the football 96 times for 710 yards. That's an INCREDIBLE 7.4 ypc, and 118 yards per game. And that's splitting carries with Ingram and Upchurch. Yeah. Damn.
Coach didn't seem quite so upset this week as he did after last week. I think he realizes that this team is tired. As he said, this bye week comes at a good time. Josh Cooper chimes in on how the weary Tide needs a break.
Darrington Sentimore, a DE from Louisiana, committed to Alabama after the weekend. He was waiting on an offer from LSU, but accepted our offer and has said his recruiting is finished. Read more on him here.
ESPN has released the Mock-BCS poll, and Alabama is #2. I guess the most surprising, to me, is Vandy and Utah being in the top 10. Now that's interesting.
Also, I didn't realize that Gene Stallings and Nick Saban had the exact same record through their first 19 games. 13-6. Read more here.
Glen Coffee gets to carry a football around campus with him all the time. He has to keep holding onto the football. Now that's awesome. I don't even wanna know the punishment if he drops it in front of the coaches.
Cecil brought up something that I have been thinking a lot about - this team reminds me of a Gene Stallings football team. Read more here.
I'm hearing that the Ole Miss game will be an ESPN game, which would mean 5:45 or 6:45 kickoff, most likely. I'm thinking LSU / South Carolina would be the CBS game.
