Ahh yes. Waiting until Wednesday to do the Monday Morning QB? Yup. I think I like the idea of hitting on 5 topics every day. I'll start doing this more regularly.
1. Tony Barnhart looks back at the difference between Jan 2007 and now...
Mr. College Football's latest article tells us all about the difference between Alabama when Saban was first hired, and the present - leading up to their 2nd straight SEC Championship Game appearance. Who thinks it was too much to pay for a football coach now?
2. Carlos Dunlap. You, sir, are an idiot.
My first rule of thumb was to think "don't get too anxious or overly critical, cause I'm sure our guys are out there doing it too." And then this article comes out with possibly my favorite quote ever. Lorenzo Washington said that Alabama players were in bed at 3:30am, and that they act right because "The Boss, he's not with all that". Hahahahahahaha.
3. Ole Miss...c'mon man. That's Houston Nutt for ya...
Handle Tennessee and LSU at home. Then get blasted by Mississippi State, who just got blasted by Arkansas. Give up over 300 yards rushing? 120+ of it to Chris Relf who hardly ever plays? Guys. It's called the option. Just play sound defense and it's easy as hell to defend.
And Jevan Snead. You should be drug out in the street and shot for some of those throws, buddy. At least you've got another year in school to try and fix it. Good lord. And the shots that Dan Mullen was taking at the Rebs were hysterical. We've got a great rivalry in the state of Mississippi again.
4. LSU. Lucky Shits University
If you think that win had anything to do with clock management, you're an idiot. But, I will say this. They played a good game, and didn't quit, which is something some of those boys have been known to do. I personally think they should have lost the game, but, personally, I'm glad they won so they'll keep Lester around for a while. Haha.
5. Charlie Strong rumors are everywhere
Looks like this is finally the year when Charlie will get his chance at a head coaching gig. However, I'm sure he would have loved for it to come after the SEC Championship game. The Louisville message boards are stating that Strong has already agreed, in principle, to a deal with the Cardinals, but now there are rumors that he will be the next head man at Virginia. Regardless, if he's focusing on another job instead the SEC Championship, and his players (i.e. Carlos Dunlap) are out having fun instead of focusing on the task at hand, this could be a weakness that propels Alabama to Pasadena. I suppose we'll just have to see what happens. I'm surprised nobody has started talking about this.
