    Re: Time for Bama to excise some demons from the past (2010 game)

    I'd be curious what the models would say if you put the stats for this game in. How often, given these stats, would you expect Alabama to win or South Carolina win.

    I remember seeing a stat like after the Clemson game where it said Clemson would be expected something like 75% of the time.

    I had forgotten that on 9/29/2001 we lost to USCe in Columbia 37-36. Lou Holtz vs Franchione.

    No, this was actually the game where Julio broke his hand. He broke it on his first reception and run in the 1st quarter, then finished the game with 8 catches for 118 yards and a TD. I think that's the TD you're referring to. So he got 7 of those catches and 104 yards and a TD with a broken hand.

    Was there for that one. The defense was awful. Tyler Watts played his best ever ... Great atmosphere.

    Watts was fantastic in that offense.

    Re: Time for Bama to excise some demons from the past (2010 game)

    That game unfairly gets pegged as Garcia having some kind of miracle game. Granted, he had a very good game, but it was one of 4 very good games in a row he played. He actually had a better game statistically the week before vs auburn, and then threw for more yards the next two weeks. It's unfair to Garcia & USC to say Bama just caught him on a hot day, they really caught him in the midst of a hot streak. Over a 4-game stretch he went 83 of 112 (74%) for 1173 yds & 10 TDs. Those numbers don't seem great by today's standards, but in 2010 at USC (which was surprisingly a running team under Spurrier), those were outstanding numbers.

    That 2010 game was lost simply because Bama did not run the ball well and USC did run the ball well (at least they ran it well enough) and Bama had some kicking woes (missed short FG, missed extra point, 15-yard punt), plus Bama had no answer for Alshon Jeffery who averaged 18.1 yards per catch. He and Lattimore were arguably more damaging to Bama than Garcia, who threw several jump balls that Jeffery was able to come down with. Lattimore had a business-like 93 yards rushing & 16 yards receiving with 3 TDs.

    If there was a key play in the game it was McElroy's fumble. Bama had the ball near midfield, 1st & 10, down 14-3. Had they scored there it's 14-10 or 14-6 and possibly a different game. Instead, McElroy is sacked and fumbles & USC takes over with great field position and scores to go up 21-3. At that point Bama was playing uphill much of the rest of the game.

    I believe these stats demonstrate that we need to play in the East.

    2. Alabama has not lost to an SEC Eastern Division opponent since the Gamecocks defeated the Crimson Tide in 2010, 35-21. Here is Alabama’s record against the SEC East in this decade:

    vs Florida, 5-0
    vs Georgia, 3-0
    vs Kentucky, 2-0
    vs Missouri, 3-0
    vs South Carolina, 0-1
    vs Tennessee, 9-0
    vs Vanderbilt, 2-0

    Oh, how I do. We played like garbage that day. Completely. I just hope South Carolina fans enjoyed their 9 years of "dominance" with that 1 game win streak
