    Bama sacks the Gophers!

    Tus- Alabama started the Year off right with a 33-21 win over the Big 12 and Minnesota as they forced 3 sacks and 1 int and 2 fumbles on the Gophers. TR rushed for 132 yards and had a huge 47 yrd run early to set the tone for his good game, But it was AJ McCarron stole the show with a huge game with 219 yards passing and 4 td's as he now takes over for departed Record Breaking QB Mcelroy. CoachBama said this was a great win as we got pressure on their qb and made him hurry alot of throws, Defense played well and deserved the game ball. Bama started with scoring early as they raced to 10-0 lead. Minnesota cut it to 10-7 as they scored on a rb run. Then Bama took over as they scored twice with McCarron throwing 2 td's in that span to extend the lead to 24-7. The Gophers scored again before HT to cut it to 24-14. McCarron threw his 4th TD of the Game in the 3rd quarter to extend the lead to 31-14. Then the Bama defense stepped up as they sacked QB Gray in the end zone to extend to 33-14. Then Minnesota scored in the 4th to trim it to 33-21 and that's as close as they got as Bama held the rest of the way.

    #4 Bama is 1-0 on the season and get Nebraska Next.

    G2-Vs Nebraska- in a truly exciting game Nebraska held on for dear life as the Bama defense forced a couple of TO's that lead to Bama points. with Nebraska up 20-10 the Huskers felt they had the game won, Then a fumble by Nebraska was recovered by Hightower and it led to a Bama TD as TR caught a pass from McCarron to cut the lead to 20-17. then after a stop, Bama drove it down with no TO as they got into fg range, but McCarron stayed out there and the FG was missed as Nebraska just downed it from there. Bama Drops to 8th in the polls and is 1-1 on the season.

    G3 Vs Ga. Tech- Won 24-17 (simmed)- Bama moved up 2 spots to 6th and is 2-1 on the season. Next Week at Home Vs #1 Arkansas.

    G5. @Florida- lost 24-17- In a very tough game Florida prevailed 24-17. Rainey led the Gators with 103 rushing yards and 2 td's. and Brantley threw for 231 yards and 1 td. Florida ran out early leading 14-3 at the end of the 1st quarter. then Bama cut it to 7 with a Td of their own by McCarron throwing for a td and forcing UF to a fg and UF led 17-10 at HT. then Florida extended the Lead in the 4th quarter to 24-10, Then Bama scored again to cut it to 24-17, and failed on the onside kick. UF closed out the game from there. TR was held to 43 yards rushing. McCarron threw for 274 and 2 TD's. Deandrew White led all receivers with 185 yards and 2 Td's.

    G6. @ole miss- won 23-7- TR rushed for 131 yards and 1td. McCarron threw for 201 yards and 1 td. and Brandon Gibson led receivers with 129 yards and 1 td. all in all very dominating performance by Bama. Bolden was held to 5 yards rushing on 8 carries as Ole miss did not have very much offense for this game. Up next for Bama Hated Rival UT.

    Final-Sec Champ Gm Vs UF- Lost 0-20- Bama came out trying out a new wrinkle in the offense but it went for naught as the Gators bottled up the Tide Offense all night forcing 3 int's and several sacks. TR was held to a season low 23 yrds before leaving due to injury. Sr Goode finished with 28 yrds rushing and no td's for either backs McCarron had a decent game throwing with 274 yrds passing but 3 Int's to snuff out Tide points. Next for the Tide is the Capital One Bowl Vs Texas.

    Bama Stems the Hogs!

    T-town- Arkansas was rolling in undefeated and ranked 1 looking for their 1st National Title since 64. Both teams came out and having both defenses on their game as the 1st quarter ended with no score. Then Bama got a drive together as McCarron passed and TR ran down the field. Then Bama scored with a TD pass and got the early 7-0 lead. Then Arkansas led my Mitchell (Scammy) ran and passed down the field and got Arkansas into fg position. The Tide Defense didn't break as they adjusted to the 2 QB system that CoachBK was employing, as both Mitchell and Wilson got their shots at the Tide Defense. Then after a 3 and out, Bama drove down the field and got another TD this time from Goode as TR went out shortly due to a stinger, and Bama extended the Lead 14-3. Then Arkansas tried again and this time the Defense forced a Int from Wilson and Bama converted to points as McCarron found Gibson and the Tide put the game away 21-3. The Tide Defense got a sack and 4 Int's and Held Arkansas running attack to nothing. even Mitchell had only 5 yrds rushing for the game as this will hurt his Heisman chances. TR rushed 26 times for 89 yrds for the tide and McCarron threw for 298 and 2 Td's and 1 int. Bama is #4 in the Coaches poll, But in the AP they Hold the #1 spot with the Matchup vs the Gators next week.

    GG Bk just wasn't the thriller we had last yr.

    Bama slams Bulldogs.

    This game was never close as the Bama defense forced 4 TO's from the Bulldog offense. Bama scored 20 in the 1st quarter as a TD pass and TD run then a Fumble by Relf led to a Bama TD and then State then added a fg to cut it to 20-3. after that Bama rolled up 19 in the 2nd quarter then 19 in the 3rd quarter and none in the 4th as the subs played and Bama just ran out the clock from there. MCcarron added 67 yrds passing and 2 td's. TR rushed for 124 yrds and 1 td before he sat out most of the 2nd half cause of the big lead. Goode added 59 yrds in the cause. Gibson and Hanks added 55 and 49 yrds with sweeps.

    Bama goes to #11 in the rankings and tied for 1st in the West with Ark with 4-2 records. Next up LSwho Tigers with the Battle in T-Town.

    Bama escapes TigerVille 24-19.

    Aub-In the True-est of Iron Bowls this won was a absolute scape til the end. Auburn was coming in trying to survive this sec season and Bama trying to Lock-up a Trip to Atl. The 1st quarter was a slugfest as both defenses were trying to establish their position. Bama finally got a drive going with a mixture of run and pass and then Bama got it down to the 1yrd line and on 4th down CB decided to go for it, Good Call since this is yr rivals. and TR took it in from the 1yrd line for a Bama 7-0 lead. Then Aubie tried to go and get going but again found nothing vs the Bama Def. then in the 2nd quarter Bama got another great powerful drive and drove it down to the 5 yrd line and got it to the 1 again, this time on 4th down CB went for the points and Shelley nailed a 19 yrder and a Bama 10-0 lead. and the Lead held til HT. Then quick strike in the 3rd Quarter as McCarron found White for 66 yards on a straight post and Bama extended the lead to 17-0. Then later on Dareus made his presence as he Stripped Dyer of the ball and Upshaw took it 68 yards to paydirt and Bama now leads 24-0. and as the 3rd quarter ended Bama leads 24-0 (oh Boy 24-0 Uagrad we know about that). Then in the 4th quarter as the Rain continued to pound the field Bama had a drive going when TR fumbled the ball and Au had new life. then Au drove down the field and finally found the end zone on a toss sweep and aubie scores and cheese-head went for 2 and failed on the play. Bama still leads 24-6. Then again Bama had a drive going when TR again fumbled and Au picked it up and rumbled 66 yards and another aubie TD. CH went for 2 again and Chapman sacked Trotter when T slipped after the snap. Then Bama was thinking onside and Aubie kicked it off and Bama had the ball again. Then a good 6 play drive was snuffed out again by TR fumble(his 3rd of the game). and Aubie had the ball again. TR was Benched for the rest of the game by CB. Aubie then drove it down again with the big play being a 47 yrd pass by trotter. Then Dyer capped it off with a TD and then CH decided to kick the xtra point and Bama leads 24-19. Then Bama got the ball and decided to play aggressively and make Aubie burn their TO's. and a Mixture of Gibson and Hanks and Goode Made AU burn all 3 of the TO's and then to really rub it in CB continued to drive the ball down the field as the Barn's Def wore out and Bama comes out of the Iron Bowl with a Big 24-19 win and Even if Arkansas wins Vs Lswho, Bama will get the trip to Atl due to winning their game earlier this season 21-3.

    McCarron was the Player of the Game with 319 yards and 1 TD and 1 pick.
    TR only had 49 yrds and Fumbled 3 times which lead to AU points.

    AU- Trotter had 259 yrds and 0 TD's and 1 Pick. (Made by Sr Barron)
    Dyer held to 17 yrds rushing even with the 2 Td's.

    Bama Smashes Michigan 41-7.

    T-Town- Bama got their frustrations vented with barely hanging on vs Au last week and came out with a purpose TR had a td and 125 yrds rushing thanks to the O-line dominating the Line of scrimmage in the 1st quarter. and bama scored twice and a 14-0 lead. then Bama piled it on in the 2nd quarter as they scored 20 in the quarter. Michigan finally scored on a Long pass when bama was up 34-0. that made it 34-7. McCarron threw for 3 td's in the quarter 2 times to White and 1 to Te Williams of 57 yards. The Subs finished out later on in the 2nd quarter as Goode rushed for 125 and 2 td's and was named player of the game. TR finished with 200 yards as he had 125 in the 1st quarter alone and scored 1 td. McCarron finished with 183 yrds and 3 td's in the game. DR of Michigan finished with 235 yrds and 1 td but did not finish the game getting knocked out in the 4th quarter. Smith was held to 44 yrds rushing for Michigan.

    Next up is the Rematch of the earlier meeting of UF-Bama for the SEC Title.

    Bama rolls the Steers!

    Orlando-Wrapping up their 2nd straight Capital One Bowl, Alabama rolled the Longhorns 29-0 in a dominating fashion. Bama won the toss and defered and Texas went 3 and out, then Bama went on a clock-killing drive as they took it down to the 16 yrd line and TR finished it out with a run and a Bama 7-0 lead. Then in the 2nd Quarter Bama struck again as they drove it down and again TR finished it out and Shelley missed the xtra point and a 13-0 Bama lead. Then a crucial sack by Barron knocked Texas out of FG range and punted. Then McCarron (who had a Career day) found Norwood near the 3 yrd line and he took it in from 30 yrds out and the xtra point made it 19-0 bama. Then Texas threw a int and Bama took it down with seconds remaining in the 1st half and shelley nailed a 38 yrd fg and a 22-0 Bama lead. Bama continued their approach and kept forcing the Horns to 3 and outs all the 3rd quarter. In the 4th Quarter Texas finally got a good drive going and took it to the 5 of the Tide, then CB called a blitz and Dareus forced the fumble and Barron scooped it up 92 yrds and a Bama clinching TD and shelley converted the xtra point and a 29-0 Bama lead. Then again Texas tried to get a drive going and Gilbert threw his 2nd int to Sr Barron and Bama closed the game out with a 29-0 shutout of the vaunted Longhorns.

    TR (probably his last in a crimson uniform rushed for 113 yrds and 2 td's
    McCarron threw for a perfect 16-16 for 200 yrds and 1 td and 0 int's.
    Dareus finished out his Career with Bama with 3 tackles 1 for loss and 1 sack.
    SR Mark Barron finished out his Career with a 1 int and a season total of 4 Int's, and had a 1 sack in the game.

    TR finishes the Season with 1419 rushing yards and 12 Td's & caught 29 balls for 258 yrds receiving and 1 td. Career wise he finishes with 1718 yards with 19 td's & 415 yrds receiving with the 1 td. as TR will probably go to the Draft.

    Dareus finishes his Career with 57 tackles and 28 for loss and 2.5 sacks. His presence up front will be missed next year. and FS Barron finishes his Career with 64 tackles and 17 for loss and 3 sacks and 5 int's. His leadership will be hard to replace. and Olb Upshaw who was a beast on the defensive front as he finishes with a career total of 80 tackles and 28 for loss and 7 sacks and 1 pick. his leadership will go to Hightower next year. but he will be missed.

    What will 2012 Bring we shall see as the offense and Defense will have fresh faces on both sides of the ball.
