An Evening with Coach Saban. Chris Low, ESPN's SEC blogger, has written one hell of an article about the "Hey Coach" show. Very good read.
Cincinnati looked like the real deal last night. They handled South Florida, in Tampa, with ease, and with a backup QB, no-less. I was very much impressed by their defense, and how efficient their offense was, even with a backup. Brian Kelly is, in my estimation, one of the best coaches in the country. He knows what it takes to win.
I don't think the betters are buying into Vegas's plot to get you to take South Carolina. The line opened at Alabama -17, which looked like a whole lot of points...but since then the line has risen to as much as -18.5. Wow.
Does anybody seem to think that Arkansas can hang with Florida? I think they'll give them a good ballgame.
South Carolina's gonna be missing some players. Their 2nd leading rusher, Jarvis Giles, has been suspended for this game due to unspecified team rules violations, and Heath Batchelor, their starting left guard, has left the team this week. Not good to come to Tuscaloosa without your full allotment of players, I would think.
