ROLL TIDE, ROLL

Posted on 11/09/2008 12:16:37 PM PST by chesley

Well, I searched, and found nothing about Alabama's gutty win over LSU last night, so here it is, 27-21.

http://blog.al.com/tidecorner/2008/11/alabama_vs_lsu_the_full_recap.html

So, Roll Tide.

On a personal note, while I don't know Rashad Johnson, and have never even met him, I work with his father who is a foreman at the company at which I am employed.

He's proud as a peacock, of course, and my bet is that once Rashad signs that NFL contract, he will retire and follow his son aound to every game.

What a great game that was. I had some ‘chores’ to do while I watched. I got very little done.

Roll TIde!

LSU played tough and the officiating was horrible. Yet we were able to get the win! I think we added 16 mins to our year to date total of 1 min 15 seconds of being behind in score.

It was a good win for the Crimson Tide and a good win for Coach Saban. :)

And the excuses keep rolling in...Clemson was expected to be a BCS contender....after Bama....they were overrated. UGA preseason #1...after Bama...they were overrated. Bama certainly couldn't win in Death Valley...oops. ESPN was already crowing last night that FU (UF) will destroy us in the SEC Championship. We're in a great place right now. One game at a time...always underestimated. Take care of MSU. Rammer, Jammer, Yellow Hammer, Give em Hell Alabama!

Dixie's Football Pride, Crimson Tide!

Indeed it was. Iowa over Penn State was reminiscent of No. 2 Iowa over No. 1 Michigan 1985, FG at the buzzer to win in Iowa City both times.

Yep, but the one thing is, Bama played the games on their schedules. Bama DID NOT rank all those teams preseason. I have heard, well their schedule is not as strong as first thought because of Clemson, LSU, TN, Auburn, and GA did not turn out as well as first thought. That was not Bama’s fault. They did not rank all these teams. All of them were ranked ahead of Bama. One poll did not even rank them before the season started and one had them 24th I think. Shows you how much the so called experts know. They all picked AU and Clemson in the top 10 along with GA and LSU. Bama just played them. Maybe what Bama did too them is what helped their bad seasons along that road, except for the Barn that is.

I have a sister and a brother, both UA grads that live in the Dallas area. Not to mention the resultant neices and nephews, all Tide fans.

Roll Tide.

Roll Tide!!!!!!!!!

One game at a time. 24 hour rule. :-)

Rashad is quite the player. Coach Saban speaks very highly of him. “I would hire him.” That’s a great endorsement.

Can’t say enough good about Julio’s talents. What a work horse. Coffee, too. And then there are all the other players. They are a TEAM, and that shows with every play. Keep it up!!!!!!

I wore my Bama shirt to school on Friday and one student said, “I thought you did not like OBama, oh wait that is Bama.” The shirt has multiple Bama, Roll Tide, Championship dates on it.

A week or two before election day, a couple other Bama Babes and I were bemoaning the Bama/Obama/Nobama/etc. link and were so waiting for it to all be over. I guess it won't be for at least four more years! Oh Pooh, I just hate it!!!!!

I think I'm gonna have to stick with gear that says Roll Tide instead of Bama for a while. Only problem is I have a Bama Babe plate on my car and I hope that doesn't get misinterpreted!! ~<];D

As an LSU grad I can say it was a great game and emblematic of the type of ball played in the SEC. I can sum it up in one word, quarterback. Bama had on and LSU didn’t. I don’t know why they didn’t pull Lee out before he blew the game. I think most LSU fans wanted to see Saban humiliated much more than they wanted to see LSU beat Bama. All in all it was a great game and I think both teams could walk off the field with heads held high. Hope the Tide can roll all the way this year.

John Parker Wilson didn’t have one of his better games, but it was sufficient in this case. I think Rashad Johnson was the real determining factor in this game. Without him, we lose.
