I said I hoped Bama did not give up on running against Georgia, and that the best way to neutralize Jarvis Jones would
be to run right at him. You told me Bama would never be able to run on Georgia, and another poster told me that if
Bama ran at Jones he would beat us. 350 yards rushing made you incorrect, and Gary Danielson took the time during the game to point out how Bama was neutralizing Jarvis Jones - by running right at him.
Then you and EdA made a federal case out of Quinton Dial's hit on Aaron Murray. When the head of SEC officials exonerated Dial after 10 days of excruciating review, I said something about it on this forum and was told that nobody acknowledged this because of the Sandy Hook shooting and the upcoming fiscal cliff. Fair enough.
I say the same thing about the ND game as Georgia and got told again that there is no way Bama runs on the ND defense. I believe I quoted you earlier. 265 yards rushing later, you were again proved incorrect.
Now you want to split hairs about something Coach Saban said about his team having overachieved, which he did say. I am not sure what that has to do with the fact that two times I told you Bama needed to run the football to win, two times you told me Bama could not do it, and Bama totaled 600 yards rushing and won the SEC and BCS championship games.
I am wondering if/when you are simply going to say that I was right about those two football games and you were not.
You were right about being able to run the ball in those 2 games. Again, it would be 1 thing if I was the only one who said what I said, but I wasn't. Far from it.
1) I agree with you, running at Jarvis Jones seemed to be a good strategy.
2) I agree with Ed and Jabob, regardless of SEC officials decidingthe hit on Aaron Murray was within the rules, it looked like an unnecessary cheap shot to me, then your timing did seem a bit insensitive as the significance of the argument diminished against a real world tragedy.
3) You were again correct, as a matter of fact I pointed out durring the game I wished my favorite NFL team had that line and those two runners.
I still don't think Alabama is the number one team in the Country, I just think ND was terribly overrated.
I was just kidding on that last point, wanted to raise your blood pressure a bit as you seem to take this so seriously...
You've succeeded in raising blood pressure for all RTF SEC fans.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
