Things are all happy and quiet again here in the South. After much tension last week from the Alabama Fan base and Nick Saban declaring how “pissed off” it made him for people to doubt a one point win, things have finally settled down. On Saturday, the Bama boys unleashed a beat down on staunch rival, Texas A&M, a complete shut out 59-0, that basically shut everyone up…even the critics.
Alabama is now back in the top four and back in the race for a title game. Not to get too far ahead of ourselves, Alabama still has some heavy contenders coming up, they still have to play Mississippi State as well as Auburn. However, things are looking up and on Monday morning, everyone is happy.
The win had a lot to do with Coach Saban giving his offensive line a pep talk that helped pull the team together. The sideline on Saturday felt “electric” and anyone within a hundred mile radius could feel it. Alabama got their groove back and came out with a bang. Texas A&M never even had a chance to even put points on the board. It was one of the most amazing Alabama games ever because it wasn’t a “nobody school”; It was TAMU, and after having to handle Johnny Football last year, the Tide was ready to deliver a win on a silver platter.
The best part was that Alabama got so far ahead, Coach Saban gave the green light to some of the younger players and let them play out the rest of the game, giving them valuable game play time. Fans also got to see some action from Jacob Coker, something Bama fans have been salivating for. So not only did Saban pull of the coup of the century by shutting out TAMU but he also pleased the fan base, and in Alabama, that’s a lot of people to please.
Next week Alabama travels to Knoxville to take on the Tennessee Volunteers. Let’s hope their game on the road is as good as the game they played at home this week. If so, Vol fans will be crying ‘Rocky Top’ instead of singing it!
Roll Tide Y’all!
