They brought the effort. They could have/maybe should have beat Florida and LSU. On a neutral field, Bama would be favored over Kansas State, Oregon, and double digits over Notre Dame. But, if Kansas State and Oregon goes undefeated, they should play in the title game. Six teams in the SEC could beat Notre Dame.
So wtf happened? At least LSU beat Texas A&M in College Station. Proves Bama had a cream puff schedule before LSU. Bama only had one true game to get up for and won that contest barely.

Re: Texas A&M vs Bama

Funny, I never knew there were so many Texas A&M fans in Louisiana until Saturday!!!

I had to work absurdly-long hours all weekend - I actually slept at work Saturday night - so I managed to miss both Bama / A&M AND Saints / Falcons (although I had WWL for that one).

I knew A&M had a good team, and frankly the Tide got exposed against LSU, but I hoped we'd come out angry against A&M. Instead, sounds like we got off to a slow start & couldn't catch up.

Oh well, now that all the SEC teams have handed each other a loss, I guess the nation gets that SEC reprieve ESPN has been whining about. Nobody to blame but ourselves ...

Re: Texas A&M vs Bama

I have said it before and I will say it again.

A 2 loss SEC team is better than an undefeated PAC, MAC, BIG 10, BIG 12 or whatever in the hell other conf. you want to throw at them. 19 times out of 20 a 2 loss SEC team will win.

A&M played a great game. While I was happy about getting them; I knew what was to be expected from them. They can play football. Get ready to add A&M into the SEC elite in 2-3 years. After 5 years the Longhorns will do everything in their power to NOT play A&M. I am happy to see the rivalry renewed with A&M and LSU, but now that they will be in the same conf.... it's going to be rough. What recruit doesn't want to go to an SEC team???? None. They all know that the SEC gives them the best shot at a N.C.

Yes, a little grin did come across my face Sat. However, Bama fans; keep your heads up. I feel sure you will be playing for the Championship. ( I just vomited and hit myself in the balls for saying that)

Why does the West get A&M?
Why couldn't we get Mizzou?

I know.... I know.... Mizzou is east of A&M.... but the West side is already STACKED with ridiculous talent and good teams (or teams that can breakout as GOOD any season), and the EAST is like an ultra-competitive version of the ACC. It's NOT FAIR they get the cupcake as the East is already packed with CUPCAKE TEAMS!

GEEESH!

I wish I knew the answer to that question, Mark.

The West is brutal. Even now as MS State is starting to show some life. Trust me, MS State will get stronger and stronger. Then we will have Bama, LSU, A&M, and MS State; you can lup Auburn in there because they will fire Chiznit and will be a better team. The East sits with FLA, SC and Georgia. TN is 10 yrs away from getting back into the mix.

It's Crazy.

Re: Texas A&M vs Bama

So, you guys blast Alabama's "creampuff schedule" on one hand and then complain how tough the SEC West is on the other.

Does not compute. I smell hypocrisy.

Re: Texas A&M vs Bama

I haven't blasted their schedule. I think they need some easy schools. LSU does it.

Well... if the shoe fits, right?

Impressive wins here:
Western Kentucky
Florida Atlantic
Arkansas
Western Carolina next week
We now know Michigan sucks, as does Tennessee and Mizzou and Ole Miss
The Auburn game is not supposed to suck, but it will this year.

So basically, you all scheduled three high school teams.

Bama split the two real teams they played.

Of course, the very same can be said about LSU, except they played Florida and South Carolina. But they were breaking in a new QB and the OLine was also transitioning.

Going forward, the SEC west will likely prove to be more formidable than the east.

They'll win their next two, then probably sneak by Georgia.

A lot can happen in 4 weeks.
Bumpity bump!!!
