Bama looked very "Bama-ish" against a good Wisconsin team. I think it's safe to say they'll continue to be a force to reckon with in the SEC West. No matter how many key players graduate/leave for NFL, they just seem to keep on keepin on with an endless supply of talent, without missing a beat!

Dammit!

I was at the A&M - Zona State game last night. Great game! I was expecting a shoot out between two explosive offenses, but instead was pleasantly surprised to see a hard fought defensive battle. Chief has our guys salty this year, and the D line especially played well, with 9 sacks and 14 TFLs.

Keep an eye on freshman phenom Christian Kirk (WR), because that's a name you're gonna hear a lot more of. The kid is the real deal! Here he is showing his speed on a punt return TD.

He also had a dazzling TD reception off a bubble screen from midfield that was as impressive, maybe more so, but I couldn't find a link to the highlight.

Keep in mind, he's a true freshman!

Well, THE Ohio State looks like they are picking up where they left off. I went to bed earl, but they seemed to be driving most of the game, even missing some of their guys. "12 Gauge" is a hoss. 

They looked focused and fast, just like Urb's like 'em.

And unfortunately, it appears they have a pretty easy schedule the rest of the season, so barring a major upset, I see them coasting to the playoffs again... unless the playoff committee penalizes them for soft SOS...but I don't see that happening, as they are the sports media darlings at the moment.

Ted, did you see UCLA play at all? Freshman QB Josh Rosen, (remember that name) threw for 3-fitty-1 Saturday. I seem to recall The Queer Spear chasing him to go to Tallahassee. Big Grin

No, I didn't see any of the UCLA game. I was hanging out with my girls all day prior to our game. I'll be watching for Rosen.

Man, really weird weekend in CFB, with a couple P5 ranked teams either getting a scare and/or beaten by FCS teams!

I can't believe Arky got beat by Toledo! Toledo?!!! AU dodged a bullet against Jacksonville State and needed OT to finally pull out the win, and they had to come from behind to put the game into OT to begin with! Missouri struggled to beat Arkansas State.

Weird weekend.

Still, as previous years have demonstrated it's hard to tell much about any team this early in the season, and the preseason rankings are usually bogus for the most part.

Agreed! Man, I was a Jax St. fan Saturday! But in the closing minutes they decided to play not to lose instead of playing to win and it bite them in the butt.

Florida host The Vols this weekend. 

Might want to use a 2 QB attack against the Volunteer "D" that is quite good this year. Tempo, keep them guessing....TRY to make up for that Florida "O" line that is gonna have a LONG day against Tenn's front 7. 

Stay classy Knoxville!!

So who's The OT's numba one team in the country going into week 4??

Me? 

The best team I've seen this year is...The Sip!! Maybe not defensively, but that high octane offense can keep them in a game with anybody in the country right now.

Who Dat got to go on the road to play them this year. Your right, Mike. That will be a great match up. 
I still think Fournette is just getting warmed up. He is DAZZLING.

Ole Miss is a very good team, no doubt. I'm still not convinced they're a better team top to bottom than Bama, despite Saturday's results. It's just damn difficult for any team to overcome 5 turnovers against a quality opponent.I take nothing away from Miss; turnovers are part of the game, and they made the most of Bama's mistakes, legitimately beating Bama in Tuscaloosa. But, I still believe Bama has more talent overall, and I believe they can bounce back from this and still be a legit playoff contender, as previous years have demonstrated.

LSU's Fournette is a once in a decade, special player. The dude is frightening! If LSU had a potent passing attack to complement him, their offense would be damn near unstoppable.

I disagree about Bammers. I'm not sold on Coker. Secondary is highly suspect. The loss of Amari Cooper is showing. No big name stars that Bama typically has on the roster. Henry ain't bad, but can't do it all. 
All that, IMHO, and a stronger than usual SEC West...

Bama ain't done losing. This could easily be a 3 loss season for The Tide. (Sorry, Mike.)

OMG, that's the typical Tn fan. Check out the ring. At least they are all costumed up for trick-er-treating. LOL

Maybe so, but consider this...
Bama was down 30-10 near the end of the 3rd quarter. Yet, they still managed to score 27 points mostly in the 4th quarter to bring the score within 6. They were driving with a minute left in the game and might have scored again to take the lead had Coker not been intercepted.

Bama put 503 total yards on the Ole Miss D vs. 433 total yds for Ole Miss.

Bama 29 first downs vs. 16 for Miss.

TOP 35:26 for Bama vs. 24:34 for Miss.

3rd down efficiency was 55% for Bama (11 of 40), 29% (4 of 14) for Miss.

Rushing yards: 215 Bama, 92 Miss.

Both teams had the same pass completion %: 54%

Bama had better stats in every category, except the one that cost them the game: 5 turnovers (2 fumbles, 3 interceptions), giving Miss a short field to work from.

Again, not saying Miss didn't win legitimately, but Miss was very fortunate to get that last interception because Bama was more than capable of winning the game at the end and had plenty of time to do so, despite of 4 prior turnovers and a 20 point deficit. In short, few teams could overcome 5 turnovers and still threaten to beat Miss from a 3 score deficit, mostly all in 1 quarter of play. That's impressive. Given the stats above, do you believe the result would have been the same had Bama done a better job of ball security?

I do think Chad Kelly is a better QB than Jake Coker at this point, but I personally think Bama has as good or better talent everywhere else, along with a better coach.

BTW, the NCAA is in Oxford, MS right now as we speak, investigating Ole Miss for possible recruiting violations. Who knows whether they'll uncover anything, but one has to wonder how they were able to land so many 5 star players in 2015. Somehow, they were able to lure a bunch of blue chip players, who had offers from everyone, to a school in Mississippi who hasn't won a championship title of any kind since the early 1960's, when they hadn't been able to get these players in the past. Not just regional players, mind you, but from all over the country. Either Ole Miss coeds are smoking hot, or Hugh Freeze is one helluva recruiter to sell Ole Miss over Bama, LSU, and Auburn... or something really fishy is going on.
