Scab has been pretty fair in his articles of late, however I passed on this morning's serving. It was titled "As if talent and coaching weren't enough,Alabama has all the luck". an you belive it? Yes he recounts the injuries we've had, and then notes that Michigan, arky, and Mizzou, din't have starting QB's, while conceding at the end of the paragraph, "does anybody believe the out comes would've bee any different?" Then concludes "the Irish are offensively challenged", inferring we should win easily. I don't believe in posting links to boogs websites are their apologists, however this guy does get it right sometimes, I guess his booger leanings are are coming out this week. I don't agree with every article I post, for sure, however I draw the line where I see denigration of the Players or Coaches or the University. This article crossed that line, with a thinly disguised disparaging of the teams efforts. True a team needs scheduling luck, injury luck, and luck with at least 50% of the referees' calls, as any coach and indeed Coach Saban has said, however, to lay our team's success off to "luck" is too cute by half, most especially for an "unbiased sportswriter". I actually read it so you wouldn't have to. I emailed this response to him. One get gets Bama News where one can find it. doing it everyday, it is sometimes difficult. I use souces, I don't particularly like (al.com) for instance, but I ty to be diligent, making sure the content, is up to TideFans standards.
I blogged this post, on TF.com

They remember what you do in November. And for me, this is my last chance in November to cut into the ATL Kid’s five-game lead. I did pick up a game two weeks ago because he’s still not a believer in the Music City magic that James Franklin is working at Vanderbilt. Still, five games is a daunting deficit to make up, which is why it’s imperative that I narrow the gap this final weekend of the regular season. If I can just get within striking distance, we saw last season that he still doesn’t have that “It” factor when it comes to picking games in the postseason. He’s still young and will mature, but postseason picking is a whole different ballgame.
And then there’s Jim Weaver. The Virginia Tech athletic director, normally not one to verbally shoot from the hip, preferring to keep his athletic department’s cards close to the vest, caused quite the Twitter stir late Tuesday night with comments that may or may not have been taken out of context. - See more at: http://www.ibleedcrimsonred.com/#.dpuf
