Even after the first loss, pretty much every Alabama fan I know is still very excited about our prospects for the rest of the season, and it all comes back to their faith in Coach Saban's coaching. The Decatur Daily takes a good look at how this team is performing above expectations so far:
This Alabama team had a losing season last year.
However, that is what makes this Alabama team so appealing. The Tide is doing the unexpected, and a lot of players who are contributing are those who weren't on our radar last year.
I'm pretty sure this is just some Auburn or UT fan trying to be funny, but if it really is an Alabama fun running FireCoachNickSaban.com, you suck, and we hate you.
The Bleacher Bloggers seem a little upset that a couple of classy guys like the Mayor and I didn't oblige them with some post game trash talking.
Your Crimson Daddy has just the thing to curb Wilson's struggles.
Looking ahead to Florida State, Tomahawk Nation, the SBN 'Noles blog, is way ahead of us with a great post about Saturday's game and what it means for Florida State:
Hmmm, maybe. It's hard to say. It is a "must figure out how the rest of the season will play out" game. Because, say FSU struggles at the QB position again and loses. They have the Duke game to figure out that position and then it's a Thursday night against Wake Forest and a game against a Miami team gaining confidence by the second.
In the end it could be the difference between 6-1 and 4-3 or even 3-4.
So depending on your expectations, this is a must win game for the Seminoles.
A quick quote from Coach Saban during the weekly press conference that I really liked:
That's probably the best summation of where this team is right now that I've heard yet. Yeah, they didn't go out there and execute like they should have, and we lost because of it, but you can't fault their attitude in going out and giving it their all on every play. The execution can be fixed, but the players have the kind of winning attitude that's been sorely lacking the past several years, and it's really refreshing to finally hear that from the coach.
Even though the majority of you thought kicking the PAT was the right call, Hunter Ford would like to respectfully disagree:
