The history of this blog

This sports blog began as an avenue for me to vent my frustrations regarding Alabama's football team, as well as another vehicle for documenting my well-known obsession with NCAA football. It began a year ago this week, and, like most blogs, it began with a flurry of posts, leveled out and then basically died once I became caught up with Alabama's success this season. However, the Iron Bowl holds a special place in my heart, and I feel that it is necessary to give it true respect each year. Yeah, I do think Alabama should win Saturday. Yeah, I do feel as if Alabama has played better football than Auburn every week of the 2008 football season. And yeah, I think Alabama has an advantage in every area of the game going into Saturday's contest. But, do I think it is a given that Alabama will prevail? HELL NAW! Anything can happen in the game, and it usually does. While Auburn's record shows that the team has not lived up to expectations, a win against Bama makes the season a success and dismantles a great deal of what the Tide has accomplished thus far in 2008. Furthermore, if Bama wins, the six straight Auburn wins are placed aside, and Nick Saban has removed that particular albatross from his neck. I think this is a tough one, but I think Bama grinds it out, old school Georgia Championship Wrestling style and wins this version of a no-dq lights out, cage match 28-13.

So, Bama avoids being Croomed and Javier Arenas had 150 plus return yards while Mississippi State puts up under 170 yds of total offense. The rumor mill is churning that Croom's days are numbered. All other SEC coaches will sleep a little more heavily if this is the case. I may break down and cry if Sly is chased from Starkville.

I received an accolade

I was recently named the Most Fashionable Member of the Faculty by the seniors. to be honest, I'm fucking stoked. Wanna come shop with me?

Saban Bowl-errr countdown to something

So, I've enjoyed all things Bama these past few days after the albatross was hung about the collective necks of the Crimson Tide. IT took Nick Saban only 22 games to propel the Tide to the top of the AP and BCS polls, and his former school LSU would like to topple Bama after only six days. I guess it would be poetic justice if it happens, and in Baton Rouge, that definitely may be the case. Fuck it, who knows at this point. All I know is that I don't know goddamn shit about college football at this point.

However, I do like when commentators and sportswriters refer to a team as "the hottest team in the country right now," and "the hottest team is always a one loss team on the rebound a la Florida. Florida does look amazing, but the Gators did lose to Ole Miss in the Swamp like six weeks ago. Wouldn't teams that remain unbeaten still be "hotter?" Am I missing something. Oh yeah, style pts.

Michael Crabtree is the most badass player in college football after last week. He's even more badass than a croaker sack full of Tebows.

I kinda doubt that Auburn or Tennessee will lose this weekend.

Kentucky is bowl eligible for the 3rd straight year for the first time since Bear Bryant was head coach. HOLLA!

The ACC and Big East are mind-numbingly schizophrenic, as far as conferences are concerned.

UGA better rebound kinda fast before the Dawgs have to deal with Auburn and Tech. Tech looks ready this year.

Though Alabama is 9-0, the Tide is 0-6 against its final three opponents during the past two years, 0-5 against LSU over the past half-decade and 0-6 against Auburn since 2001. However, if Bama makes the SEC title game, the Tide is 1-1 against Florida since 2005. Go figure.
