Is it just me or does Saban HATE scoring more than 50 in a blowout? Beat the heat. Stay inside and watch College Football!

Catch me if you can!

Well, the good news is Alabama absolutely dominated Kent State as they should. The bad news is running backs Damien Harris (knee ligament injury, LCL initial reports said possible LCL but Saban now says Harris is day-to-day with an ankle sprain) and Bo Scarbrough left the game with injuries. The good news is that Joshua Jacobs came in and TORE IT UP! Fellow freshman running back B.J. Emmons looked good as well. Scarbrough should be okay but Harris may be out for awhile.

Tide fans also got a good look at some fine-looking young'ns like right tackle Jonah Williams, kick returner Xavian Marks, WR/DB Trevon Diggs, LB/FB Mack Wilson, placekicker Andy Pappanastos, and others. The future looks bright.
