"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
That personal foul call was ridiculous. As was the pass interference. To me, those two teams looked very similar. Evenly matched game.
Anybody else going to any games today?
Good call on the Clemson-Auburn game...
Alabama looked awesome and many reports coming out that Michigan was a little bit in awe of Jerry's world.
Neither team in the Clemson and Auburn game looked like they wanted to be in Atlanta.

Kentucky is absolutely awful, which I love. I just hope they don't do something intelligent like fire Joker and hire Petrino.
Game atmosphere was great there. Very fun game to be at. Few thoughts:
Frazier will improve his accuracy. He had a lot of passes that were overthrown or underthrown, but he wasn't terrible. Jason Campbell wasn't great when he started out either.
Defense has to tackle! Defense didn't look that great, especially secondary. D Line was ok, but gave up far too many rushing yards. As Chizik said, that 68 yard run should have been a 5 yard gain.
Very tough game to lose. Thought we had the game the whole time. Oh well. Let's hope we can bounce back and put it to those Miss State Bulldogs. Would love for us to have a huge game and handily win the game.
In terms of the season, I think we will improve. Will we beat Alabama and LSU? Probably not. Didn't watch any of the games because I was in Atlanta, but sounds like they dominated. I really hope we can beat Georgia, but that might be a little too much pressure. I really think we can beat Arky, Vandy, A&M, Miss St., Ole Miss, and the 3 cupcakes for an 8-4 regular season. That isn't that bad, and I think next year we will continue to improve and be even better. War Eagle!
But there was great intensity, it was hard hitting and a drama filled game played in a great atmosphere between two teams in a burgeoning rivalry. I have no idea how that's a game to complain about as a season opener.
Concerning the helmet rule, presumably it's to allow the student athlete to be checked out on the sideline. Again, pretty hard to criticize a rule that protects the noggin of a young athlete.
