I'm not sure it matters when there's 9 years between games. We played them in Tuscaloosa in 2009. We used to play each rotating opponent from the east back-to-back games each rotation. That doesn't seem to be the case anymore. We don't play USCe again for another 5 years.Great game... congratulations to Tua... defense was a little shaky between the thirties but forced field goals instead of TDS. Ref scored the last TD as it should be our ball after a failed fourth and four... Gary will be discussing how a guy should have scored with his knee down the rest of the year. Oh well was happy with the W overall we have a very young team due to injuries hopefully they grow up... kudos to S.C. QB he is the real deal he is a force to be reckoned with... btw the way did I miss it but didn’t we play in Columbia last time? I thought we played home and home with everyone???
Someone besides Muschamp will be the coach for SC by thenI'm not sure it matters when there's 9 years between games. We played them in Tuscaloosa in 2009.

On the radio, Eli said they partially blocked the kick. Just enough to send it off course.Good win. I feel like we saw our young LB's struggle today and especially 8. He looked a little confused today, but they keep talking about how inexperienced he is. I feel like he and 35 will learn from what South Carolina were doing to them today. It looked like we were having trouble fitting the gaps on their outside runs. I thought the OL did a better job today with the exception of the second drive when they sacked Tua twice. I do wonder if maybe there was a bad hold or snap on the missed XP because it just didn't look like all of his other XP's.
We're on the same page. Keep in mind, I don't think the losses to LSU and the barn are guaranteed. I think they're probable only if the team doesn't improve on (1) the running game, and (2) at least two of the other three cited points.4Q, I don't disagree with anything you say except the guaranteed losses. We do need to improve in order to more better assure we won't drop a game, but the team as it stands today can win them all until at least Georgia in the SEC championship game. No one is stopping this QB/WR corps without injuries occurring. Now, they may outscore us, but that's a lot of pressure to have on your offense. So I say we can beat LSU and Auburn today but it would be a bumpy ride.
Our line play has to improve on both sides. We look like the Kirby defenses of old, never being able to get pressure without blitzing, and most of those blitzes still getting picked up. I don't know what to think about the offensive line. Being a pass first offense should not disable the OL from being about to open up running lanes. But I love us getting the RBs involved as receivers.
The freshmen on defense will continue to grow up and be ready for the the better teams when we get to them. But our offense has to keep the pedal to the metal. I'll say I've never been more confident in one to do it.
IMO, Bama is better than both LSU (-7) and AU (-9). Both will score, but neither can stop Bama's passing game. IMO, Bama would be able to get enough stopsBad news: This team, as it exists right now, has some significant flaws. Without improvement, we will lose at least two games (LSU and the barn), and maybe a third.
Good news: We're young, should improve, and the challenging part of the schedule is 4-6 weeks away. There is time to become by then what we are not today.
When we listen to Gary's interviews after the game he is always hugely complementary about Alabama and Tua in particular. His commentary and memory of the previous games is extraordinary. When ,however, he becomes such an advocate for a close ball game he is like a dog on a bone. He just can't give it up and the CBS crew support him with replays while the game continues. He drives us completely mad with that game after game. My other complaint is that CBS goes into full promo mode and moves away from calling the game for practically the entire forth quarter. Anyone can see that sports is only a sideline for CBS in everything that they cover and they do such a sloppy job. Sports coverage on TV in general is becoming almost too much to watch.Danielson seems to always fail to understand what is obvious to everyone watching.
Gary is a zero on the ten scale.
