Roll, Tide, Roll!

The only deficit I care about right now is that the Crimson Tide trails LSU at halftime, 7-3. Greg McElroy overthrew what would have been a touchdown pass. Then, as the clocked ticked down toward the half, on first-and-10 in LSU territory, McElroy got panicked by a blitz and threw an interception.

Further such failures should not be permitted. In the second half, McElroy's job should consist mainly of handing the ball to Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson. Stick to the ground game and just let that big 'Bama line pound the Tiger defense to smithereens.

McElroy can worry about his Heisman stats next week. Today, Alabama must win.

UPDATE: 11:40 3rd quarter, McElroy 21-yard TD pass. He's redeemed himself. Temporarily. Nancy Pelosi? She's beyond redemption, an enemy of God and man.

UPDATE II: Final score: 'Bama 24-15, but it shouldn't have been that close. I don't know why Coach Saban doesn't establish the running game first in a game like that. Alabama's offensive line could have dominated LSU all day. But a win is a win, I guess.

  1. I felt the same way about Navy beating Notre Dame, it shouldn't have been that close, but dang, it felt good.
