  1. Cool, so he announces yesterday 12/10 ( that he is going to announce his decision on December the 18th. Yet he says in an article in OA today ( about how he has flipped now and that he de-committed on the Sunday the 8th and told the coaches and they were mad and pulled an offer he didn't want. So tell me this , why would you announce a decision day on the 10th if you had already de-committed and the offer was rescinded. on the 8th?
  2. I remember having time at the end of the first half like 2 and 1/2 minutes down 17-14, offense had been moving the ball and we go into a shell and run the clock out. Knowing it was going to take everything they had to win. And that was that, all over at that point.
  3. How many of them have there been on first down with Ole Miss stuffing the line?
  4. 17-16, sitting in the Alabama student section. Right before the second blocked punt for a touchdown I turned to my friend and said watch them do it again. Then it was almost like watching an instant replay and the half of the field we were in pretty much was silent and the other half was going wild and orange and blue was flying everywhere.
  5. I thought Gatewood would be the starter. If they were more or less equal coming out of evaluation, then the more senior guy should be the starter. If he can't get it done then you can bring in the next guy.
  6. A little over 3 yard per down is all you need at times
  7. Did any of you catch Davidson after a play looking at a ref and saying "Come on man"? You could read his lips. It was in the 2nd half.
  8. Out of the frying pan and right into the fire.
  9. Me too, here's what I remember about it's_Eve_1963_snowstorm, My family had headed home from Brilliant Al. to out home in Thomson Ga.. on New Years Eve after spending Christmas with my Grand Parents. We made it nearly to the Georgia line and were turned around by State Troopers and had to try to get back to Brilliant all the while snow continued to fall. Needless to say it was late that night when we got back. This was in a 1959 Chevrolet Impala. way before front wheel drive. Along the way back we took a slide toward side of the road and I can remember seeing the tops of large pine trees below us but the car took a groove and straightened out. We fell in behind 18 wheelers and followed their tracks. We managed to got the last set of chains at a place in Jasper.Next day we watched the game with Grand Parents and didn't bet back to Ga. for a few days. I was 9 and the snow was about 17 inches in the yard .
  10. what a bunch of s***, they gave the game to them
  11. I'm listening to Sonny and Rod 10 seconds ahead the TV guys blow.
  12. I so agree with that description. Sabin changed the narrative when he came to tuscalosers, in 07 he called all the journalist in one at a time and told them how he wanted the mighty tide portrayed in the media and that's a fact Jack. I heard from a good friend of one that told him he hadn't been talked to that way since he was in elementary school. Didn't make any difference he hasn't called him out on anything since them, in other words you either tow the terd line or your access is nil. All of that was to swing the perception and support to the dark side. They subsequently went out and "got" the best player's that he asked for and the rest is history. Not sure how much '"getting" they have to do now but if needed they are the best around, no trails. They have the NFL pipe line going and that's as good a recruiting tool as it gets.
  13. when our coaches showed no confidence in our offense, beginning of the end.
  14. anybody catch the super quick push off Judy used at the 24 on the TD pass?
  15. that was actually BCrap a the end of the half
  16. Another thing I remember is that right after that was 1/2 the stadium looked like they had been hit with a taser deadly quiet and the other half was roaring and going wild with blue and orange shakers and stuff filling the air
  17. Mine too, the 2nd time bama was punting I turned to a buddy sitting next to me and said "Watch them do it again". It was almost like watching an instant replay.
  18. No kidding, I think players have to respect the head coach and know there are consequences to failure to "Do Your Job". It takes a little bit of an SOB'ness to be a winner as a head coach.
  19. Seems like I remember Gus frantically calling the the offense off late in that game after Malik Willis hit a 37 yard pass to Marquis McClain that almost went to the house. Hand offs up the middle after that instead of letting the 2nd string get some good reps in.
  20. I've been a fan since I was cognizant, I'm ready to start the fire and burn my stuff and the cognizance is from about 1962. I've not been a real fan since my kids attended in the 2000's and it appeared to me the only thing AU was interested in was milking every penny out of me and my wife as long as they could.
