    Yeah McGahee tore 3 ligaments in his knee.

    Lattimore also broke his femur which is insane, the thigh bone is one of the toughest bones to break, and then he broke his knee cap and tore the 4th ligament in his knee. Total destruction in that area of the leg...anything that is there to hold that area of the leg together was torn or broken except for the skin.

    You just hope he can recover to walk normally again. I don't really know what the expectations are after an injury like this.

    I think he's got coaching in his sports future. It would be surprising if he ever competed on a high level again.

    Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread

    There is some pretty serious chatter about Jay Jacobs being replaced with an interim AD (Scott Etheridge) @ Auburn as early as tomorrow which would flick the dominoes leading to Chizik's departure (maybe as early as this week?), an outcome that is all but certain now.

    These are unusually specific details much like the stuff I was hearing during the Cam saga so I'm cautiously expecting a bit of an eventful week. At the very least these rumblings clearly signal that there are some serious conversations being had in the mansion on the corner of Samford and South College and the decision making process is already well underway.

    Did anyone see the Sportscenter interview with Nick Saban? I only saw the visual of Nick in his wood paneled office, wearing his argyle sweater, and wearing loafers with no socks and high pants. It was an astounding visual.

    He is the peer of Calipari as far as being on the top of his profession, but is the opposite in another way. Saban thinks he is cool but isn't and Cal think he isn't cool but he is.

    He looked creepy in that.

    Auburn will be picking from some great names both for their AD and HC positions. Chizik will not be around any longer than Dec 1 and may be gone sooner depending upon how long it takes to get all the ducks in a row. His replacement will probably be hired by an interim AD and will likely have an established track record of winning a lot.

    Jimbo Fisher? Maybe. Petrino? Right now, I'd be shocked by that.
    I think Auburn fans ought to relax and just be a little patient. This isn't going to require a lot of patience.

    Maybe now we can stop hearing the idiocy that Alabama could beat an NFL team.

    Ain't that the truth. Your defense, especially in the second half, pretty much has throttled their offense (and QB) where they haven't down squat. McCarron was 1 of 7 for 0 yards in the second half. Then on the last drive, with about 1:30 minutes left, you basically loosen up your "grip" (pressure), have your secondary playing soft coverage, thinking the clock is Alabama's worst enemy right now? Then when they have moved down, well within FG range, they decide to blitz, played right into the screen play, and the rest is history.

    IMO, this is on Les Miles. But I'm not a Les Miles fan.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I never seen Saban like that in the post game interview:

    1. He looked proud
    2. He looked emotional
    3. He looked relieved.


    That game is why College Football is the best TV show right now. It had a little bit of everything.

    I thought Saban was outcoached last night. They abandoned the run too easily and they didn't make many adjustments at half time.

    Bama played their worst game all year. McCarron wasn't very good and they had 2 fluke fumbles. LSU caught quite a few breaks, but Bama pulled out the win. LSU played a great game.

    Didn't help that Mettenburger turned into Tom Brady. Teams that give Alabama problems are teams with a hot QB. LSU was also spliting a TE out wide and putting a WR in the slot. Safeties were covering WR's in zone.

    I think the Texas AM game is going to be rough next week.

    I want a Oregon vs Alabama NC Game.
