It's Gameday
The worst part about the 6:45 kickoff is that we have to wait like 7 hours after ESPN Gameday before our team actually comes on. The good part is that it gives the fans down in Tuscaloosa plenty of time to get riled up and ready for the ballgame, so by the time we get to kickoff, Bryant-Denny Stadium should be extremely loud.

In the meanwhile, I'm watching Oklahoma and Texas, and I've already seen a screen pass to Demarco Murray take them from their own 30 down to the Texas 8 yard line.

I'm interested to see what's going to happen between Arkansas and Florida today. A lot of people seem to think that Ryan Mallet and the Hogs can give the Gators some real trouble. I think that Florida's defense may be just as good as ours, so I don't expect Arkansas to get much going at all. This is the only good offense that Florida will play for the rest of the season, so it may be the only shot to get them picked off before the SEC Championship game.

I'm curious to see what happens with Alabama and South Carolina tonight. Garcia has been known to make a lot of plays with his feet, and if the pocket collapses on him, like it has every other QB we've played so far this season, he will either make some absolutely huge plays, or he's gonna make some big mistakes and maybe end up in the hospital there in T-Town. I expect more turnovers, personally. I'm looking for 3 interceptions and a fumble at some point in the game.

I have a feeling we're going to get a lot of quick passes tonight. McElroy will have a TON of hot routes and screen passes because of two reasons. First, you want to slow down their pass rush with Eric Norwood from the edge, and two, I have a feeling that Ellis Johnson will probably put 9 in the box to try and stop the run because they've given up a total of about 400 yards rushing to South Carolina St and Kentucky. They know if they just try and play us with a base defense, we'll run for 5 yards a carry and grind out first down after first down.

We want our running backs involved, and our slot receivers to have a look for hot routes and screen passes.

I may update more later when I get a chance. If not, Roll Tide and we'll talk to you tomorrow!
