    I thought we were going to get blown the eff out. Not only has this team shown that they will compete tonight, but that they can certainly win.

    Credit to the players for the new energy.
    Credit to Robinson for keeping it simple.
    Credit to both the offensive and defensive lines for winning their battles.
    Credit to Major for not trying to be fancy and waking up from the daze he was in last week.
    Credit to Case for taking what's there and not trying to be spectacular.

    Good thing last week was only preseason. We should be a rolling ball of butcher knives by this time in October.

    I wouldn't get too giddy just yet. This is just not a very good team. I figure 7-5 or 6-6 this year and Mack is finally shown the door. Good days are ahead, but not before some more pain.

    I was feeling better at half time too. Not so much now.

    Game shoulda been at least 27-14 at half. This team just is not good. I doubt seriously our level of talent as well.

    The fact that Edmond and Phillips see the field blows my ******* mind.

    I kinda hope that everyone sees why Case isn't our best option now. Makes awful decisions. Moves around in the pocket before any pressure gets there. Major doesn't trust him enough to let him throw on 2nd and long.

    Well, the third quarter went about as well as I expected the whole game to go.

    It looks like Ole Miss is going to win this sissy slap fight.

    Can't wait to see this team get their nose bloodied by an actual football team. That should be good for some laughs.

    It's quite evident that our players are just not that good. Overrated by me and a lot of people. [​IMG]

    This was abyssal. It's 2010 all over again. No telling how low this team can go. I'll be interested to see how Mack spins this one in the presser. If he says win out or win the conference can someone throw a shoe at his big fat lying head?

    The offensive line just plays a little when it wants to.

    The defensive line and defense in general simply cannot get off block and can't find the ball in the zone read or diamond formation.

    The blueprint to beat Texas is cast where almost anybody can figure out how to gameplan us. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah, I bought the fools gold at halftime and briefly thought maybe the team had turned the corner. But no, OL continuted to block inconsistently, Case continued his happy feet dance, Edmonds, Phillips & Thompson, etc. continue to get fooled by misdirection, are out of their lanes, take bad angles and miss tackles.

    Yes, this isn't a very good football team right now...

    Texas always recruits well according to Rivals, 247 etc. Shows what they know. Bobby Bowden said his downfall was too much internet recruiting and not enough talent evaluation by the coaches.

    For all the 5stars they have look at the number of 3 stars Bama have that are making significant contributions,
