As I stated, "maybe not defensively". 
That's TWO straight years The Sip has beaten Saban. If Bammers couldn't get cranked up for that "revenge game", then I have to wonder how good Bama is this year. 

Ya know I ain't hating. If Bama was in the SEC East, they'd have it wrapped up. I'm not saying they're not "good", just not "Bama good". 
At Jawja, at College Station, home with LSU....dare I say Big Orange?? are going come gunning for them. 
At Sippy State and at Auburn. That's a dangerous schedule for anybody. 
I loved Bama against Wisconsin this year, but they just don't seem right. Easily a 3 loss season for Saban potentially.  

That Ohio State game last year made them seem vulnerable to me.

Oh, I wouldn't at all be shocked to see them drop 3.

Then again, I also wouldn't be shocked to see them run the table. I will never count out a Nick Satan coached team no matter who they do or don't have. They consistently have an endless supply of blue chip players waiting in the wings.

That's the interesting thing about the SEC and the toll it takes on even its best teams any given year due to the gauntlet they have to endure. Anything can happen.

I didn't think Sip and Sip State would fall apart at the end of last year the way they did.

I also didn't think "the" Ohio State would beat either Bama or Oregon last year, I didn't think Notre Dame would beat LSU, and I damn sure didn't think TCU would beat Ole Miss, much less give them the complete beatdown they did. The past couple years especially have been weird and have proven conclusively that my college football predictions haven't been worth spit, so I've given up on making them and just sit back and enjoy the ride.Big Grin

Mark, no offense taken! I'm hopeful of this years team. As Ted pointed out, they did well in the stats but fumblitus is not a typical ailment at Bama. Fundamentals have never been a problem like it was in sip game. Dropped passes, missed assignments, just sloppy play that isn't normal to Saban coached team. Could they run the table? Yes, could they get beat again absolutely! What I will say is this, had that team come back an beat Ol' Miss that would have been a game for the history books of Bama football. IMHO

They showed the character of a championship team, they never rolled over. That's something Saban will build on!

Great....Got Big Orange coming into town and Treon Harris fails a drug test and star DB Jalen Tabor refuses to take test, thus gets suspended. 

REALLY?!!!??!! You didn't know you'd have to pee pee???

I tell ya, I'm always a'feared of Bama. I freakin hate LSU and have ever since I was a student at A&M during the Southwest Conference days, when their fans vandalized buildings on campus with purple spray paint and so many of them acted like total asshats. But for some reason, I don't hate Bama despite the beatdown we received from them last year. They seem to be able to take good-natured ribbing and normal homerism from opposing fans better than some other fan bases I've seen. Perhaps lots of winning does that to them.

Don't get me wrong; I'll always hope we somehow manage to beat the hell out of Bama every time we play 'em, as any fan would. When I put down the Maroon Koolaid and look at them just from the perspective of a football fan, however, I respect them immensely and I'll always worry about our games with them. They've earned respect, not only recently, but throughout their history. There's a good reason why the Steely Dan song "Deacon Blues" contains the lyrics:

They got a name for the winners of the world
I want a name when I lose
They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
Call me Deacon Blues

I agree with ALL you stated, Ted. 

I know I shouldn't, but I love Bammers. Big Grin

Mike, I'm reading some interweb rumors about Lane Kiffin getting in another jam......Booster's wife or Saban's daughter?  Whatever 

I was just saying the other day that maybe Kiffy has found a place where he belonged. A place where he could coach up QB's and run offense's...keep his yap shut, pants zipped and all would be well. 
Maybe those nasty rumors in Knoxville were more true than rumor.

I can make that wish happen, and would be thrilled to do so, Mike! Any time you want to visit, let me know. Every fan base has its share of asshats, but I promise you, most Aggie fans will treat you with respect and friendliness...despite wishing ill will on your team.Big Grin

BTW, the proper terminology is "Midnight Yell Practice." It's a bit weird (o.k., a LOT weird) to outsiders, but hey, many college traditions are weird, and that just adds to the fun in my book. If you understand the colorful history behind some of the weirdness, it all makes more sense, and a lot of the origins of our traditions are kinda funny.

Reveille is our beloved mascot. Reveille VIII just retired last year, and Rev IX just started her career a couple months ago.



Miss Rev is not only our mascot; she's the "First Lady of Aggieland" and is also the highest ranking member of the Corps of Cadets.  She's the only animal besides service dogs allowed in any building on campus.

She wasn't always a collie. The first Rev was a stray dog that some Corps members accidentally hit with their car, and brought her back to campus to care for her. Here is Reveille I:

A&M was an all ROTC college until the 1960's. Reveille 1 got her name because she barked when the bugler played Reveille every morning. According to tradition, if Reveille decides to get on a cadet's bed, that cadet must then sleep on the floor. If Reveille barks during a class, that class must immediately be dismissed for the day.

More explained here:

Yep. I heard that Mcalister might be suspended too, which made me crazy. Tenn QB Dobbs is gonna go after Quincy Wilson with Tabor out. 
Not feeling good about Saturday BEFORE this......

Well, at least I still have this legendary tribute to Volunteer fans.....Rocky Top you'll always be last in the SEC...good ol Rocky Top...Rocky Top Tennessee....

I'm good, Ric. Thanks for asking! How's everything over there in the Sunshine State?

BTW, Mark, that's my second favorite GIF behind "Rainbow Man."

Mark,

lets,just say there may be trouble in T town. The 2 in question I've seen in action on the strip, nothing would surprise me.

Keep us posted, Mike. With Kiffin there's no telling.

To think someone in Knoxville told me Lane would be the next HC at Florida....
Sheesh...
