I just want to share my thoughts on the game Saturday night after reading posts and comments from our fan base. If we score a TD the 4 times we kick FG 's, the score is 49 - 14. Maybe we aren't having a lot of these discussions about playing hard, poor offensive execution, etc. We surely could have done better, that I will not argue, but Bama did what it had to do to get the victory.
CNS is a class act, and has brought class and pride back to the Capstone. The type of football we play is the envy of every fan base. I love the physical style we play, and after seeing WVU/BU and UT'/OSU, I am more than happy with our win.
AJ had an off night and was still near perfect on the stat sheet. He made some errant throws and easily could have had 2 int's. I would think nobody is harder on themselves than AJ. Odds are he was in the film room early Sunday morning.
Eddie is still not fully 100%, obviously, TJY is a freshman and will have ups and downs. Amari was great, and he will do great things if he doesn't get hurt. As an overall team, we will struggle with highs and lows, because the SEC is a tough conference to play in regardless of the team.
I hope Dee Hart is okay and back soon. He isn't a big guy, but he has a heart the size of Texas, and a lion's share of competitiveness. Guys like Dee are what makes good teams great. Deandrew White is really a big loss, if he is out for the season,we lose a big play threat and exceptional teammate. But, other guys will step up and get the job done.
This is a different team, that is still finding it's way, and with the help of CNS, they will get there. Whenever I get a little down or frustrated, I just think of the years between Stallings and Saban, that puts things into perspective, and makes me realize what a great coach we have, what great teams we have, and what a great group of young people are at the University of Alabama.
We may or may not lose a game this year, we may or may not win an SEC championship, we may or not win a national championship, but I will be proud of our players and coaching staff no matter the outcome, because whatever is done, will be done with CLASS. Roll Tide my brethren!
