My favorite one of the three. It's certainly a better "Batman" movie than the other two.
Earle should've been in The Dark Knight Rises instead of Daggett.

Yeah, it would've been nice to get one more Superman movie before everyone else is thrown in. WB must not want to see one movie/character bomb on their own like Green Lantern did so they're just going to skip a few steps.
Maybe the idea is that Superman isn't liked/trusted by everyone after all o...

[quote]Its funny to me though that some of the same complaints this year post-AU are the opposite of last year post-A&M when they tried to throw a TD instead of smashing it in. Folks were calling for Nuss's head because he put the ball in AJ's hand inside the red zone last year...[/quote]

[quote]I agree. It was weird. And its not like Yeldon never fumbles either. [/quote]
I know. Yeldon is a very solid running back, but he is no better than EL, TR, or MI....and they all had to split carries.
But like I said, our last two losses (A&M and AU) can be traced to us not taking advant...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Is Kenyan Drake hurt? - FairhopeTider on 12/3/13 at 8:34 am|
If you don't trust Drake, then don't play him. But when you put him in there and he gets 8 yards a clip, then maybe you should try and feed him a little more. Honestly, on third or fourth and one, a toss sweep to Drake would've been money.
Drake aside, we just went away from our philosophy of "ta...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: The Players don't seem as Inspired Anymore - FairhopeTider on 12/1/13 at 3:49 pm|
We no longer have any player that came on board before we were a championship program. The players then had the goal of building. The current group have the goal of sustaining. It's so much easier to get excited when the program is on its way up. That target on our backs became an albatross. It even...

| Alabama Sports Board|| re: tOfficial Meltdown thread - FairhopeTider on 12/1/13 at 7:15 am|
The frustrating thing is the way we came out so scared to start the game. It's like we feared AU, a team who we've beaten two years and hadn't allowed an offensive TD from. How does that happen? With all of the hundreds of thousands of dollars we give to Kevin Elko, how did we come out so tight & af...

There have been games where we just ran into better teams (LSU 2011, Florida 2008) or teams that just had the hot hand while we were mentally spent (USC 2010, A&M 2012). Today was different. From the start, we were afraid and it was obvious. Then it was one coaching blunder after another. Malzahn di...

That we appreciate him, but he isn't perfect. That the fans aren't the problem (yes, we do have crowd issues) and that he should act a little more appreciative of being our coach rather than sending his wife to the WSJ and telling them we aren't good fans.

Our staff completely got outclassed. For all of the mental stuff Saban spends that money on, it did absolutely nothing in that first quarter. For a two time defending national champion and 10 point favorite against a team we beat 49-0, we played absolutely scared.....Scared.
That is on our prepar...

That with 3rd and 2 or 3, it seemed like a mile. But when AU had 3rd and short, it felt like a foregone conclusion that they would convert?
What a choke job by our offense

NBC is showing nothing but Broadway acts. Boring as hell. It's as if there is no parade going on.

All year I thought A&M was extremely overrated. They live and die by Manziel and fortunately for them, he's delivered. However all it takes is for him to have a bad game and they'll lose. Their defense is no better than air and they have no real threat on O outside of Evans. If you have an offense t...
