Hats off to Texas for providing a good game after losing their star QB. But McElroy also was playing injured with cracked ribs he suffered in the Florida game.
Gilbert did an admirable job, but still turned the ball over (4 INTs). Bama's defense stepped up when they had to.
And IMO, you have to be able to run the ball. Texas couldn't, and Bama put up over 200 yds on the #1 run defense.
It might have been a closer game with McCoy, but I still say Bama wins.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
