Days 'til LSU: 6

Well, we got through that one. Now on to the big one.

The biggest game on the schedule was / is the LSU game for all the external factors, and now for the fact that we've ascended to the #1 ranking, thanks to Texas being beaten in Lubbock last night.

You know what Coach Bryant and Coach Stallings both used to say about football? Just win. Everything else will take care of itself. My dad taught me that a long time ago. Do the things that you're supposed to do, and do them the right way, and everything else will take care of itself.

I really didn't expect ESPN's College Gameday to make another appearance at an Alabama game this year, especially since the newly annointed #3 team in the country is playing against another top 10 opponent, but I guess since they just went to Lubbock, they couldn't really do it again. never know. There aren't a ton of big games this weekend, and I'm pretty sure that EVERYBODY will want to see what happens, and how the crowd's going to respond when Coach Saban goes back to Baton Rouge.

I watched a touch of LSU's game against Tulane last night and the best thing that I took away from it was this -- Jarrett Lee threw another pick-6. The coaching staff is putting him in bad situations, and that's something that we can take advantage of. He's putting the ball in places where the defense can make a play on it, rather than making smart throws. The play-calling has A LOT to do with that. We'll see if that continues.

The biggest thing this week is to remain focused. Go into the game like we're the underdog, and everything will be just fine. Besides...look at Bama's games on the road this year: 34-10, 49-14, 41-30, and 29-9. Beatdowns. That's what I'm talkin about.

Not to mention the fact that I have a feeling that Coach Saban wants to absolutely beat the dog piss out of the corndogs. Just a feeling. I think he's sick of the shit that they're spewing down there, and he's got some tricks up his sleeves that he'll pull out for this game. We could see this one being like the Florida / UGA game turned out yesterday. And I do mean UGLY.

We've played LSU one time as the #1 team in the country. November 10th, 1979. We beat them 3-0 in Baton Rouge that day.

I'll talk more tomorrow. For now - FOCUS.
