    Alabama Crimson Tide

    Good lord is that a football team or what?

    They absolutely handled Florida last night.

    Are they on a collision course with Ohio State? Another epic SEC v. Big Ten matchup?

    I'm hoping neither team stumbles because that could be a hell of a game.

    Alabama has won NINE STRAIGHT SEC road games. That is an impressive stat.

    Can't stand Saban or the "Tide".

    Darn Razorbacks. Could have held on.

    Now that we're at it. Darn Volunteers! 13 on the field? Geesh. (Don't like Miles or LSU, either).

    What a way to lose, I loath the ugly orange but I felt sorry for Dooley.

    Nor can I, but my dislike for Urban Legend is greater. Nice to see his team get the beatdown.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Watched the end, I hear every day that they're a helluva team, every single day.

    I think it will be Oregon and Bama.

    I think those two plus tOSU could all be underwater. Someone will get their feelings hurt...

    Alabama is pretty dang good. They have a habit of not doing much after they jump out to a lead though. They let off the gas in the second half against Florida, if they would have kept going full throttle it would have been even more of a massacre than it was.

    You can say what you want about Saban, but they guy knows how to build winners, and his defenses are usually among the best, if not the best, you are going to find in the college game.

    Lot easier to build winners when you bring in 140 scholarship players over a five year period.

    Pretty interesting read. After reading the entry about how Tressel runs his program, as far as scholarships goes, makes me appreciate him even more.

    Until the SEC changes their standards they need to be setup in their own league.

    When you can sign 30 guys a year and discard the bad players you have a HUGE advantage. Ohio State and most other schools can't just miss on a player and get rid of him. The margin of error for the southern pro schools is just laughable.

    That's not even mentioning the laughable academic standards at most of those schools.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Many SEC schools are leaders in science and engineering research.... speaking for Auburn, academic performance is no laughing matter.
