Saturday was the Third Saturday in October, and unfortunately, like it has been since 2006, the Tennessee Volunteers ended up on the wrong side of a 44-13 beat down. So on to the the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.   The Good: Alabama sports one of the bet defenses in the nation, and in [...]

Tennessee and Alabama both had easy games on Saturday. Oh, wait, UT didn’t? They were tied with Akron at the half? Hmmm? They won right? Ok. Well then on to the week 4 reviews to see how bad Steve and I were this week. Florida Atlantic at Alabama Steve Says: Four weeks in and the [...]

Saturday was awesome for a half. I wasn’t sure of a victory at any point Saturday, but I liked the way we competed in the first half in that hostile environment. 6-6 at the half…and we’ll stop there. Now on to the good, bad and ugly. The Good Mike Palardy had his best game ever [...]

McCarron has it.   A question I asked myself over and over yesterday was, “Could Sims have done what McCarron did if he had the opportunity to start [...]

Duron Carter has reported to Alabama’s practice field for the first time all season. All is well.

Julio had a great career at Alabama, but it seemed the ‘Tide always had a difficult time using him to his full ability. Once I looked at these three videos, it was obvious that we didn’t go to the television booth enough. It’s scary how many times McElroy and Julio responded to the voices in [...]
