The Pick, truck, return sequence might be the meanest play I've ever seen.

Most lopsided 17 point win I can remember.

Lopsided? I know I'm a homer, and the UW offense obviously had no answers, but those 17 pointso were 3 plays: fumble, pick and the long TD run. UW D was hardly getting rolled. This could have easily been a 10-7 final

Yes you are a homer. You got rolled. If bama's offense was even remotely competent that's a 35 point win. After the first drive UW did nothing.

Which isn't to say UW defense wasn't very good.

But that game wasn't close. The three play thing is a weird way of trying to explain it away.

And remember I'm not a bama fan at all and I loathe the SEC stuff.

IF we're going to play the IF game, what IF UW wasn't starting mostly underclassmen on the OL, what IF they hadn't fumbled when already in FG range...

Their D did the job they needed to do given the opponent. If Alabama'state offense was better, maybe it wouldn't have, but who knows?

Cmon. You got smoked. You're good, you're young. You should be back next year. Lots of teams like that who go on to win national championships get run their first time around.

You've got the logic of the if game reversed tho.

Bamas backfield is actually less experienced than yours and the only start one senior on the o-lin

I think Evelyn has been buying you cocktails when she visits NYC...

We're going to have to agree to disagree.

Let's hold hands, sing kumbaya, and rejoice in OSU getting stomped.

Yes, we can definitely unite around that!

Mainly, I need to focus on cooking NYE dinner and can't be composing responses every 10 minutes...

Our poorest offensive showing of the year. Kiffin's play calling was atrocious. He made our 18 year old true freshman QB look like exactly that by making very late changes at the LOS multiple times. As was heard many times last night...just Run the Damn Ball Lane. Add in the distractions provided by his off the field behavior, and it's safe to say there won't be many who are sad to see him leaving for FAU.

I adore my defense. They are positively brutal on the field. Hard not to call them the best ever at Alabama. That is an impressive list to top. And they are such great guys off the field. I tried to post some video of their visit to the Children's Hospital here in Atlanta-but, the iPad strikes again and won't play nice. I'll try again from my computer when I get home.

ROLL TIDE!!!!

Hilarious. Does Sark's promotion to OC come with the stipulation that he can no longer pick his nose and eat it on national TV?

Even though I know it won't be reciprocated by mongo (and it is a partial sign of the apocalypse), I was pulling hard for USC tonight because A) I despise James Franklin and B) Because of what a warrior Adoree is. Very glad it was what appeared to be a run of the mill ankle injury and not a knee. Those ACC refs were horrid. And the condition of the field was pathetic.
