Happy Hour "SEC Style"
Bubbais driving down a back road in Alabama ..A sign in front of a restaurant reads:HAPPY HOUR SPECIALLobster Tail and Beer"Lordy mercy!" Bubba says to himself, "Them's my 3 favorites!"
I hope that we at least try to run it a couple times to try and keep them honest.
They might be the best run defense ever, but I would venture to say that our OL is the best they will see all year too. I would be surprised if our coaching staff just threw up its hands and abandoned our identity without at least seeing if they were as good as advertised. I would also be surprised if we don't have a backup plan available if (i) their run D is as good as advertised or (ii) they are forced to walk 8 or 9 down in the box.
I was told point blank last week on this board that my suggestion that Alabama run right at Jarvis Jones to neutralize him was just dumb and that if you run right at him "he will beat you." Not only did this happen, Gary Danielson himself said the same exact thing I did about running at him. Now it turns out that in the 2d half Bama's right tackle was walking up to the line of scrimmage and telling Jones and everybody else that the play was coming over him, and they still couldn't stop it. Yep, I guess my suggestion was pretty stupid after all. And this against an SEC defense with NFL players all over the field.
All that to say this: ND might stop us from running, but they will have to do it that night on the field. All this talking about it, and most assuredly my talking about it, has reached the point of diminishing returns IMHO.
gary danielson definitely reads rtf's college football thread for color commentary insight. i think i would rather have verne drink a glass of scotch and agree with my prediction than have gary confirm my views.;-)
who will do the play by play of this bcs championship game anyway?
Now he's got at least 2 more years to match :D
Now maybe I can find a Johnny Football jersey in Ft. Worth.
I just noticed that Tommy Tuberville quit Texas Tech to take the head coach position at Cincinnati. That was a surprise!
