I listened to a little bit of "Vol Calls" last night on 92.9 ESPN here in Memphis. I laughed so hard that I cried.
Now, I'm not overlooking South Carolina, but man, these UT fans are delusional. One bad win over a crappy Georgia team, and they're ready to dethrone Nick Saban. In Bryant-Denny, no less. They really think that they're going to win the game. Niiiice. Surely they realize that Saban has had this one circled ever since Lance Thompson decided to split to ol' Rocky Top.
Fishy betting lines
Alabama opened as a 17 point favorite over South Carolina. Does that not sound like Vegas is BEGGING you to take SoCar? This is a trap game, but Bama should beat this team by 4 touchdowns.
UConn opened -12.5 against Louisville, and the line immediately dropped to -10.5. Vegas is wanting you to take Louisville so bad in this game it's not even funny.
Illinois is favored AT Indiana by 3. Illinois has not covered a single spread this year. Hmmmm...
ESPN's SEC Rankings
SEC Power Poll - Chris Low thinks Bama's #1. He doesn't see a weakness. I see some, but not much.
I'm not sure if I like all of the media attention we're getting. It's always nice, but I don't know how it affects the team. The last thing we need is for them to actually think they're the best. Keep playin with a chip on their shoulder, and they are the best. Get a big head, and they lose a step.

I'm so ready for the 10rc game, but can't wait to take on the Spurrier team in T-town this weekend. 17 is a huge spread, but I think we SHOULD cover. However, Saban isn't into style points and running up the score.....we will see.
