    Week 5-
    1st Sec game and boy it was too close. Bama had 5 TO's including three lost fumbles to make this game go into OT 24-24. Luckily in the Kentucky got the ball first and on 3rd down threw a pick that was taken back 87yrds for a TD by Jackson.

    Lets call this one THE GREAT ESCAPE!!!!
    BAMA wins 30-24

    We better get our act right or else TinCup and his Rebels will destroy us!

    Week 7
    Bama 19 SC 14

    When asked how can the starting QB throw for 389 and the RB have147 rushing yet your team had only 19 points?

    Coach KillaJo replied (we had three lost fumbles!) then stormed off.

    Well at least they won..

    Bama's D put on a show today getting 5 int's and holding Tenn to just 3 points. DE Lorenzo Washington started it of getting a pick and rumbling to the house for 57 yards.
    Tenn fought hard but the D was just to much.

    Week 11- Miss St (cpu)

    Well, it wasn't a thing of beauty, but a win is a win... When the QB throws 4 picks and 4 Td's I am just happy to get a W.

    But How about this years Recruiting class. #1 HB and QB and currently have a soft commit from a 5* DT, #2 Class behind Florida an Gunnin for that #1 Spot!

    Season 2 Week 1 @ Stanford

    The Cardinals almost pulled off the huge upset. They had the lead 17-14 at half and 24-21 going into the 4th. Alabama didn't help themselves much giving up a kickoff that was returned for a touchdown and a pick six.

    Coach KillaJo said " We were bailed out by Mark Ingram and Julio Jones in this one. Stanford played great in front of their fans." Senior QB Greg Mcelroy played well despite the pick six throwing for 350yds and two scores.

    We might have seen the start of a trend this year in which the high powered offense will have to bail out the Defense.

    MVPs
    Alabama
    J. Jones 11 rec 179yds 2 TD
    M. Ingram 120yds 3 Td
    G. McElroy 24/31 350 yds 2td 1int

    2012 Alabama Crimson Tide Team Preview


    2011 team record - Forgettable

    Returning Leaders

    Rushing: Jr. Trent Richardson 656 4.8 8TD
    Passing: SR. Star Jackson 137.2 rating, 155/262, 2118 yds, 14 TDs 22 Int
    Receiving: Jr. Kendall Kelly, WR, 28 rec, 455 yds, 6 TDs
    Tackles: Sr Mark Barron, FS, 58 tkls
    Sacks: JR, ROLB, 5 sacks
    Interceptions: Jr. Dre Kirkpatrick, CB 2 INTs

    Last season was a god awful campaign for the Elephants. The younger players on the team were never able to adjust to their respective offensive and defensive coordinators. There have been big changes this season in hopes of getting the most out of a talented senior class. This looks to be a huge rebound season for the Tide.

    This is a team that if able to limit tournovers will be able to avenge some bad losses.

    Starting QB
    SR Star Jackson (96ovr, 90tp, 90ta 87spd)
    This is Star's team. Look for the senior to put this team on his back and lead the way. If the young man can limit the interceptions he will be superb in the new fleXbox One ofense.

    STARTING BACKFIELD
    RB- Sr. Jeramie Griffin (96ovr, 90spd, 96acc, 99 btk)
    RB- Jr. Trent Richardson (94ovr, 93spd 99acc, 94btk)
    FB- Sr. Mike Marrow (92ovr, 89spd)
    ---The 2-headed monster of Griffin and Richardson should help Jackson in the passing game. These guys have set the goal of both being 1,000 yard rushers this season. Fullback Mike Marrow should get good numbers as well, both rushing and in the passing game.

    STARTING RECEIVERS
    WR- JR Kendall Kelly (94ovr, 92spd, 97spc)
    WR- SO Deon Smith (85ovr, 90spd, 83rte)
    WR- SO Brandon Long ( 84ovr, 88spd, 82rte)
    WR- SR Joe Jackson ( 81ovr, 88spd, 92acc)
    TE- SR Brad Smelley (95ovr, 88spd) Captain
    ---This is not an exceptionally deep position for the Tide. They do however have 2 seniors who can be counted on to make catches.The TE Smelly had 46 receptions last year and will continue to bail out Jackson when called upon. WR Kelly will lead a young WR group and should prove to be one of the best KR in the country.

    STARTING OLINE
    LT- FR J. Nelson (75ovr)
    LG- JR D. Fluker (99ovr)
    C- JR J. Evans (93ovr)
    RG- SO J. Grant (90ovr)
    RT- FR L. Thornburg (80ovr)
    -JR Fluker is the one dependable guy on the line. The youngster at LT will see a lot of help from the TE and FB if he gets into trouble. Hopefully Jacksons Athleticism at QB will hide some deficiencies.

    STARTING D-LINE
    DE- SR Undra Billingsley (89ovr, 77spd, 91prc)
    DT- SR Kevin Murphy(99ovr 93pwm 94bsh) Captain
    DT- SR Marcell Dareus (96ovr, 96pow, 94bsh)
    DE- JR Brandon McKinley (84ovr, 84spd, 82bsh)
    Very strong up the middle and decent on the edges. Look for another good run defense team. The question is can they get enough pressure on the opposing QB's because that has a problem last season.

    STARTING LB
    OLB- SR J. Harris (93ovr, 88spd, 94bsd)
    MLB- SO Don Wood (99ovr, 86spd, 83spd)
    MLB- JR Nick Johnson (85ovr, 87spd, 90bsd)
    LB- JR David Mixon (93ovr, 86spd, 90bsd)
    ---This LB corps is very inexperienced. I am a little scared about this group, hopefully the hold their own.

    SECONDARY
    CB- JR Dre Kirkpatrick (97ovr, 93spd, 96mcv, 93zcv)
    CB- SR Robert Lester (95ovr, 91spd, 91mcv, 92zcv)
    FS- SR Mark Barron (96ovr, 90mcv, 99cv)
    SS- FS Robert Petty (97ovr, 94spd, 91hpw, 99mcv, 985zcv)
    ---Just when opposing coaches figure it can't get any worse than that LB corps, they start to look at the secondary. Filled with ball hawks with lock down cover ability and safeties that can knock someones helmet off with any given hit, things don't look good for the SEC. JR Dee Finley passed up the NFL this off season so he could raise his draft stock. It seems as though he's done so this off season. Look for this unit to cause a lot of turnovers this year.

    SPECIAL TEAMS
    KR- Kendall Kelly, Trent Richardson
    PR- Kendall Kelly
    Kelly and T-Rich should provide a boost in terms of field position.

    This is a make it or break it year for head coach Killa90405. With a new offensive and defensive coordinator look for the Tide to bounce back. QB Star Jackson looks to prove to the Tide fans and NFL scouts that heis one of the best in the country.

    2012 Week 7

    Ole Miss 10 - Alabama 38

    The Tide Pick apart the Rebels

    Start Jackson got hurt but it didn't matter. Griffin had 3 tds total and Richardson had a 16yrd TD run. Ole Miss sucks, they must not have had any good recruits since the user coach left a few years ago. The only TD i gave up was with the 2nd string D in the 4th. McCarron played well in a backup roll throwing for 177yds and 2-1 TD-INT. Kelly caught 4 balls for 77yds but had three big drops. Murphy killed it on defense with 5tfl and a sack.

    Next week I gotta win vs Tenn
