that had to be a nightmare on the Flats last weekend. Blow a 20-0 lead to your biggest rival who was all beat up.
Tech under his tutelage has some of the softest, most mentally fragile teams you'll see in a major conference.
Georgia Tech is a tough job, but this guy just seems to have hit a wa...

I was there and I was thrilled with LSU's defensive game plan and execution. Really shut him down as well as his receivers. Plus, and to his credit he didn't say it, but I will. It was nasty Saturday. Not bone soaking wet or bone chilling weather, but wet and windy enough where running,throwing,scra...

since the renewal of the series in 1948. Alabama was home and played the game at Legion Field.Next year it was in Auburn for the first time. Auburn won 15-10 on the day after Thanksgiving.From 1949-1987 the tickets were split (save a few hundred 'gold seats') regardless of what one side claims. :lol...

Sandroni does a good job,but gracious he has to be pushing 70 or so. Heck, I'm 51 and it seems like he's been doing it forever....

in eons. Beat a top 10 team soundly and really got to just sit back and not fret about the last quarter and a half.Defense was superb and the offense was really clicking. Heck,the band's halftime show was great.

Alabama got out to an early 15-0 lead which could have been worse. Whereas Alabama dominated statistically in t...

but one thing that continues to amaze me is his disturbing lack of mobility. The 16 yd loss on the sack was pitiful. I don't expect him to be Cam Newton or Johnny Football or running the option like some Oklahoma QB in the 1970's. But its almost like the guy either can't or won't run.

Fine game and even though I thought LSU might pull it out at the end, it really would have been highway robbery.
