    SIAP: Congrats To Eddie Lacy for Reaching 1K This Season

    I now that EL has battle with injuries for the better half of the season and at times it looked like he was never going to be 100% and he may still not be. but it appears that he has really come on strong the last 3-4 games and will be the cowbell for Bama in the next 2 crucial games.

    I was very happy for him when he passed that 1K threshold esp. against auburn. keep it up Eddie, Bama Nation needs you to be at your very best!!

    TJ, you're next buddy.

    One of the best stories of the year is Lacy getting stronger as the year progressed. I would think he's at least a 2nd rounder right now. He's probably gone, correct?

    RB's need to get to the next level as quickly as possible so their not 28 or 29 when the 2nd contract comes up. If he's in the top 3 rounds I would certainly go.

    He is easily our best back right now - and I can't wait to see one of the Ga. defenders try to take the ball away from him on Saturday.

    Great job EL!!! Yeldon will get his soon enough. He can still get there before the "end" of the season too.
    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    SIAP: Congrats To Eddie Lacy for Reaching 1K This Season

    I loved how he was further behind the Allbarn guy in reaching 1000 yards and he got there before he did! He's battle tested and will be needed. If had been healthy for the year he would have put up Heisman numbers. I still believe he's the best back in the league above Gilleslee. Good job young man!!

    Congrats to Eddie! He deserves it, he runs with a lot of heart. I hope Yeldon joins him with the last two games. He should be able to break it as well.

    Congratulations to Eddie Lacy on reaching 1000 yds. rushing this year.

    You did it sharing carries with TJ Yeldon and others.
    You did it while injured.
    You did it playing a little more than half a game each week.
    You did it with us having a potent passing attack.
    You did it with everyone knowing you were likely to get the ball.
    For the most part... You did it running it up the gut.
    You did it without trickery.

    You also gained a lot of yards with your super duper, 'Spin Move'...
    You did a spin and were off to the races again. Love it.

    When you go Pro, they are gonna love you.

    (and we will miss you when your gone...)

    I hope our fans always remember the heart and team-first attitude EL has shown here. He played most of this year and last significantly injured, always came back the next week ready to run as hard as he could. I can't remember how many times I've seen Eddie either limping severely or on crutches after games in which ran extremely hard. Eddie is talented enough to start on any team in CFB, but he came here, waited 3 years for his turn, and now he is the man. He deserves any and all accolades he gets.

    6 yards per carry on average and T. J. Yeldon currently has 847 yards on the year. And we're still running a balanced attack. Congratulations EL. You are THE man. I think if we win the NC, he leaves for the NFL. If we fall short he may be back. And should he end up in the draft I pray to God that he ends up on a team that actually uses a running back. I feel so bad for Mark Ingram.

    Yeah; that was kinda goofy, but at least the kid got his 1000. EL actually got over the 1k mark against starters...

    the hit he took to the head by a TAMU defender should have been a Personel Foul. I was so relieved to see him get up on his own accord. tough kid.
