Welcome Sunday Morning: The Football Gods Must Love The Tide

November 18, 2012


Let’s see now: It looks like the Dawgs are heading to a New Year’s bowl.

Ole Miss has been just seconds away from defeating LSU, Texas A&M and pesky Vanderbilt, this year. So, instead of lining up for a big bowl with an 8-3 record, Ole Miss’ game against MSU, this Saturday, will decide if the Rebels go bowling at all. This should serve as a reminder of what a few seconds can mean.

And then there is the Tide, whom the football gods seem to love.  Who would have thought, at the beginning of the day on Saturday, that Baylor would crush #1 Kansas State, 52-24?  Who would have thought that Stanford would beat Oregon in overtime, 17-14 and put the Tide back into the driver’s seat?

Yes, The Tide still has to beat Auburn and then Georgia in the SEC Championship game. But, it was still an amazing day for the Tide. And you know – some place, somewhere – that old Bear is smiling.

You may love Bama or you may hate them, but they have a crazy way of returning from the dead. It is incredible. The Tide never really seems to die.

In Tigertown, LSU’s Les Miles is still going wild.  In his latest interview after the Ole Miss game, Miles proves, once again, that he is not always family-friendly. However, the Tiger faithful love him. He is, after all, the Mad Hatter.

You can see his rant here, http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/2012/les-miles-ole-miss-press-conference/.

What about Tennessee, you ask? Who would have ever thought, just a few years ago, that ESPN would be writing these words?

“The Commodores (7-4, 5-3 Southeastern Conference) also snapped a 14-game skid against Tennessee at home with their first win in Nashville since 1982. In-state rival Tennessee now has won 34 of the last 36 games overall in this series. Vanderbilt also had its biggest margin of victory over Tennessee since a 26-0 win in 1954.”

Tennessee is a proud program and will certainly snap back.  College football is better when Tennessee is a great program.  But, it has to make you think, that maybe Phillip Fulmer wasn’t so bad.

So, another crazy college football Saturday has come and gone.  Let’s see what the BCS has to say, Sunday night. Whatever the outcome is, if you listen carefully you will be able to hear the roar, ROLL, TIDE, ROLL!
