    #1 Arkansas Falls to Bama 28-27.

    Ark- In what will be known as a True Espn Classic Alabama stunned the Arkansas Faithful with a Big 28-27 win. Arkansas Came in to the Game ranked #1 1st time since 64 and were hoping to continue to ride their 3 game winning streak. Bama came into the Game ranked 8th in the Top 25 and were also riding a 3 game winning streak and were hoping their young sophomore Vince Lucas could perform well til McCarron comes back from his injury. Bama Won the Toss and elected to defer and The Game got under way.

    Arkansas on their 1st drive, moved the ball well mixing in Run and Pass most of the way & it looked like Arkansas was going to stroll into the end zone, But the Bama Defense stiffened and Arkansas was held to a Fg Try as Porter Nailed a 19 yrd Fg and a 3-0 Arkansas Lead. Then Bama on their 1st Drive mixed in run and pass with a major Highlight run by Richardson of 51 yrds to put Bama in the red zone. Then on the Next play, Out comes the ball and Arkansas scooped it up and returned it 92 yrds and a 7 point lead and the Hogs Lead 10-0. Then Bama was held on downs as Bama Punted back to the Hogs. Then the Hogs drove it again and with a great mixture of Pass & run drove it down to Bama red zone, But the Tide Defense Stiffened again and the Hogs were Held to another FG as Porter Nailed a 18 yrd Fg and a 13-0 Hogs Lead as the Stadium was Rocking as the 1st Quarter finally came to a end. CoachBama gathered his Players and said this Game was not over by a long shot, now go out and show them Bama Football.

    2nd Quarter Started with Bama running the Ball with TR getting massive chunks of yards as the O-line opened up holes on the Hogs Def. Then Getting the Ball to the Red Zone Bama ran twice to possibly punch it in and found very little, Then on 3rd Down Lucas Found KK for a 10 yrd Td pass and Bama trimmed the Lead to 13-7 in Favor of the Hogs. Arkasas then Tried a Drive and shortly faced a 3rd and 2 as Wingo tried to find the Holes and was Bottled up by the Tide D. Then Arkansas Punted Back to Bama.Then with Under 3 min left before HT, Bama started the Drive by Running the Ball and Still Richardson found Lanes to run through, and Lucas was Finding his Recievers, Then Bama Drove it down to the Arkansas Red Zone again and Tried to Run it in and Found very Little room, Then Lucas Found his Pal KK again for another Bama Td, this time from 14 yrds out, and the Xtra point was Good and Bama Lead 14-13 with 27 seconds before HT. Then Arkansas Tried to answer back and attempted 5 wide 3 straight Times and Found Nothing and the Hogs Punted, Then Bama kneeled the ball to get to HT with a 14-13 Lead. The Hogs Crowd sat in silence as they were stunned that their Defense Gave up the Lead. CoachBama Told his Team great comeback in the 2nd Quarter as they found the Fight again when it didn't look good after giving up 13 in the 1st quarter. This Reporter was not around the Hogs Locker Room to Get any of CoachGames comments for his Team, But im sure it was not pretty at HT.

    The 3rd Quarter was a absolute slugfest as Both Teams Had their Chances to extend their Lead and both teams were forced to punt or the QB's threw Int's as the 3rd quarter ended with Bama starting a Drive. Bama opened the 4th Quarter driving towards the end zone with run and pass and Lucas found Robinson with a Td pass of 9 yrds and Bama extende the lead to 21-13. Then it became a Defense fest as both Defenses forced each others defense to punts and then Arkansas got a Drive going with a strong mixture Pass and Run and Arkansas got to Bama's yrd line and Wingo took the Toss left and scored and then Wingo took the Counter in for 2 points and the Game was Tied 21 all with 1:47 left in the Game. Then Bama took the next drive and Found the Big Play with Bowman taking a Bomb from Lucas for 53 Yrds down to Arkansas 23 yrd line. Then Lucas found Kelly for 20 yrds to get it in the red zone and took the ball to the 3 yrd line, Then TR went right and ran it in for a 28-21 Bama lead with 1:10 left in the Game. Then on the Next Drive Arkansas went 5 Wide most of the Drive and literally found 1st downs on 3rd and long plays and chewed up their way down the field in Big chunks. Then with Time getting short Wingo went from 9 yrds out for another Ark Td with the 2 pnt conversion coming. Then Bama's Defense Dug in and Wingo went right bounced off Square of his tackle and ran into 320 lb Murphy and Murphy Tackled him at the 1 yrd line and Bama's Def Held.

    Arkansas went for the onside, and Bama recovered. Then Bama then ran out the Clock as the Crimson Tide Pulled it out of the Hat in Hostile territory with a 28-27 Win as Bama now goes to 4-0 on the season. TR rushed for 158 yrds and 1 td, Vince Lucas threw for 258 yrds and 3 td's and 1 int in his 1st start of the season. Robinson led the Tide Recieving Core with 73 yrds and 1 td with KK had 44 yrds and 2 Td's. Arkansas was led by Tyler Wilson with 266 yrds passing with No Td's and 1 int. Wingo had 76 yrds and 2 td's. and Hamilton Led all recievers with 122 yrds but no Td's.

    GG Itsnotagame Classic Game.

    Bama Rolls the Vols!

    Knoxville- Alabama came into the game ready to play despite the news out of UT with the resignation of Coach Zikry. Bama took the ball 1st and did nothing with the drive and punted then UT was held on downs and punted also. Then the running game of TR took control as Bama drove down the field and nothing more as the Vols forced Bama to try a very long FG and Shelley nailed it from 51 yrds and a Bama lead at 3-0. Then UT tried another drive and got nothing and punted then Bama's next drive was a mixture of run and pass as the 1st quarter ended. Then in the 2nd quarter bama continued their drive got into the red zone and failed to knock it in and shelley connected from 25 yrds to extend the bama lead to 6-0. Then UT got a drive together as Bray connected to his recievers and Oku was finding nothing in the running lanes. then Bray found Hunter for a TD pass from 35 yrds out and UT took the lead at 7-6. Then Bama did nothing and the Defense forced a int from Bray and hopeful momentum for Bama. Then McCarron was pressured and threw a desperate pass and Int'd by UT. Then UT drove it down and got a FG from 56 yrds and UT extended the lead to 10-6 UT, and the Home Crowd was going crazy. Then Bama unleashed their under 2 min offense and drove it down the field with timely passing and with no TO's left. shelley connected for his 3rd fg of the half and UT was trimmed to 10-9 at the Half.

    2nd Half was dominated by Bama's offense and Defense as they forced 4 sacks and plenty of Knockdowns to frustrate the Vols offense. TR scored from the wildcat to take the lead and Bama went up 16-10. Then in the 4th quarter McCarron found Robinson for a td pass and bama extended to 23-10. Then shelley connected for his 4th FG of the day and Bama continue to lead 26-10. Then TR scored the last td as bama closed out the game 33-10.

    Bama moves to #4 in the Top 25 and gets rival Miss. St next.

    Shelley was the player of the game with 4-4 on fg and 3-3 on xtra points for 15 points on the day. TR led the rushing attack with 131 yrds and 2 td's.

    Bama Rolls Miss. St.

    Bama rolled up 24 1st half points and added 10 more in the 2nd half and Bama's Defense played stellar play as they just pressured Russel of Miss. St all game and never made him comfortable in the pocket. TR rushed for 49 yrds and 1 td before a elbow injury knocked him from the game. then a slew of backs contributed to the running cause with Lacy leading the pack with 42 yrds and a td to add. Fresh Back Dickerson also added 38 yrds in mop up duty in the 4th quarter. MCcarron only threw for 95 yrds and 1 td. Russell of Miss. St threw for 54 yrds before he suffered a injury that will knock him out for 10 weeks. Bad news for the SEC West's Leading Passer.

    Next Game is Vs the #1 Vandy for the right to the top spot in the Top 25.

    Week 13 – Crimson Tide Abuses USC in Debut for New Coach
    [​IMG]
    Tuscaloosa – In a surprising move Coach bamagrad stepped down from the helm of the Crimson Tide only to see a more surprising move as Coach uagrad90 left Georgia to take over. But to the credit of the Crimson Tide players they were not fazed as they prepared to face the 17th ranked Trojans from Troy. The last two times the Trojans traveled to the State to face Alabama they left with wins over Coach Bryant. But this time things would be different. The Crimson Tide jumped on USC early and often. Alabama jumped out to a 14-0 1st quarter lead when Eddie Lacey scored on a 1 yard run and Trent Richardson scored on a 16 yard pass from AJ McCarron. In the 2nd quarter USC attempted to make it a game with a 11 yard run from DJ Morgan, but the missed extra point was a sign of things to come. Alabama added 2 more Trent Richardson scores when he scored on 1 and 2 yard runs. In the 3rd quarter Eddie Lacey picked up 2 more scored on a 13 yard run and 1 yard run. The Crimson Tide spent the final quarter emptying the bench and played everyone that was eligible as the Crimson Tide wrapped up a nice debut for Coach uagrad90 with a 42-6 whipping of USC.​

    Chick-fil-A Bowl – Crimson Tide Begins Building for 2013 Season with win over Boston College

    [​IMG]
    Atlanta – The Crimson Tide came to Atlanta looking to use the Chick-fil-A Bowl game as a spring board into the 2013 season. But Boston College refused to corporate and held Alabama to a 34 yard FG in the first quarter before taking a 7-3 lead when Donte Elliot scored on a 16 yard pass. But the lead was short lived as the Crimson Tide scored on 1 yard and 4 yard runs by Eddie Lacy for a 17-7 halftime lead. In the 2nd half Alabama extended their lead when Kendall Kelly caught a 7 yard TD pass from AJ McCarron to make the score 24-7. For the remainder of the game the Crimson Tide worked on their running game while the defense total shut down Boston College.​

    Alabama ended the year with a 9-4 recorded and ranked 15th in the final polls. Next up for the Crimson Tide is finalizing their 2012 recruiting class and hitting the field for spring practice.​
