TIDAL WAVE:
BAMA MAKING A SPLASH AFTER 58-13 WIN OVER GATORS:

  • Looks like the Tide are for real after the first quarter of the season Alabama although ranked 4th in the coaches poll looks to be one of the most dominating teams this season. They passed the Gator challenge last week at home and look to surge through the SEC West conference. With games against undefeated Ole Miss and one loss LSU left as well as the always tough Iron Bowl, Nick Saban isnt buying the media hype. "One day your with us, the next day your not. We know there is still a lot of football to be played. There is still the defending champs on the other side of the conference (UAB) we're gonna continue and improve hope to keep this seasons success going." Bama's defensive lione may be the best in the country, through five games they have three players with at least four sacks with Clint Williams leading at 6.0. Alabama has a bye week before its big divisional match up with Ole Miss in two weeks.
AROUND THE NCAA:
  • Dyks and the Champs gaining steam, move to 7th in latest polls
  • A new #1, Badgers hope to keep it this time
  • #15 Gators hope to bounce back in the swamp with #11 LSU visiting
  • Trojans may have found their nitch after last weeks Cal win
  • Red River Shootout, Sooner looking for upset
  • Defensive front: Bama/UAB, SEC futures nations top defensive lines
  • Ole Miss tries not to look ahead with a sneaky Vandy team facing them
  • Utah looks to avenge last seasons losses to Cal this weekend
  • Big Ten futures a pair of big matchups - Iowa/Nebraska and Penn State/Ohio State all sit at 4-1
  • Illinois quietly gaining momentum

GAME OF THE WEEK:

#11 LSU (4-1) at #15 Florida (4-1)
--- This is a huge SEC cross divisional match up. LSU is trying to stay pace for pace with undefeated Alabama and Ole Miss in the West while Florida is trying to not to fall two games behind UAB in East. Both teams come into this matchup rather healthy, LSU brings in a four game winning streak after a tough loss to Georgia to start the season. Led by Senior Adrian Porter second in the SEC with 15 touchdown passes, he's poised to get LSU to a BCS game this season. He has plenty of weapons like tailback Ted Kennedy the SEC leader in rushing yards. Its no secret the SEC has the best defensive linemen this year and LSU may have the best one in Senior Paul Fowler (6.5) it will be key for the Gators to know where he is.
For the Gators, they got embarrassed by these Tigers in Baton Rouge last year. There are a year better and at home. The Gators had no answer for Bama last week after winning four straight. Vincent Waller will need to bounce back. He needs to find a way to get James Daniels the ball, the play making wide out is averaging 16 yards per catch with five touchdowns, lost in the mix is Kyle Clarke he needs to show up. The Gators defense has not be opportunistic this year, they need to create turnovers and force Porter to make decisions.

DEFENSE COMING AROUND UNDER
NEW DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR

BLAZERS DEFENSIVE STARTING TO FLOURISH UNDER DC FRANK HICKMAN:


Strong Safety Dominique Rhodes proves to be the wild card in Frank Hickman's defensive scheme with 4 interceptions.



BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- As you walk out and watch a Blazer practice, you notice one thing after every play or every drill. "No Doubt, we're encouraging each other screaming and celebrating as well as swarming." Senior MLB Timi McCollum said.
What you notice is excitement level the players show after stopping the Adam Dyks led offense during drills. One player who has flourished in this new zone blitz scheme is junior strong safety Dominique Rhodes. Rhodes leads the SEC in solo tackles and is second with 4 interceptions. A two time second team All American Rhodes is a early favorite for the Jim Thorpe this year. "It took a little bit to understand what coach Hickman wanted from me expecially after the injury of Carl (Holycross) during camp." Said Rhodes. " But I fully understand now, he has me disguising coverages and teams dont know if im coming off the edge or dropping into the zone. Its a great system."
After what considered to be a off year last year Senior defensive tackle Marcus Leak is also playing well with the new stunts and twist, after a 9.5 sack sophomore year he only recorded 3.0 sacks last year. Through five games he has 4.5 and looks to be at the top of his game. "As does every thing thats new comes a time to adjust, these players have done a great job of understanding what we want from them. With the talent we have on defense we should have more games like we just had against Auburn. We're only cracking our potential there is a long season still and more stuff to work on but I like what I see right now." Said Defensive coordinator Frank Hickmen.
UAB continues its preparations for new conference for Clemson this weekend as they head out on their third straight road game of a five game road trip.

(GAME NOTES)
UAB THROWS OUT RECORDS AS THEY HEAD HOSTILE CLEMSON
-
The Blazers head to South Carolina to face the Clemson Tigers for the first time under Travis Rhatigan. Clemson, in their first year in the SEC sports a not so good 1-4 record but head coach Travis Rhatigan says the Blazers no how good Clemson can be. "We watched film on this team they are one or two plays from very well being 4-1. They have a tremendous home field advantage and I told our guys we need to focus and play smart down there."
Clemson's defense is led by linebacker M. Holmes his 40 total tackles lead the country and his 4.5 sacks has him among the best in the conference. He'll need help however as UAB has multiple threats with receivers M. Ford, T. Jackson and B. Cooley. If Holmes can slow down L. Long and the rush attack his secondary will need to be ready to cover perhaps the conference's best receiving core.
Defensively the Blazers will have to keep and eye on tailback D. Rust. His 439 yards on the ground rank him fourth in the conference but his two touchdowns show he doesnt have a nose for the end zone. Timi McCollum is back on track after missing the first game and will be key to stopping him. The secondary that includes the conference top players with interceptions Rhodes (4) Love (3) Gatewood (3) dont face a threat from Clemson but receiver J. Barber who averages 13 yards a catch will be the main target for Clemson he's deceptive and is third in the conference in touchdown receptions. Clemson's quarterback L. Kiniry has been sacked on average twice a game, facing a more fierce defensive front the Tigers will need to keep and eye on freshmen defensive Scott Gaither as well as rolling away from Mason and Leak if they are to have success.

BLAZERS BURN TIGERS:
HUGE SECOND HALF LEADS TO 45-14 BLOWOUT
OF THE CLEMSON TIGERS

(DYKS AND THE OFFENSE CELEBRATES LAWRENCE LONGS FIRST QUARTER TOUCHDOWN THAT TIED THE GAME AGAINST CLEMSON ON SATURDAY)

Clemson, SC - A 3 for 11 start with a interception wasn't what the doctor ordered for Adam Dyks and the #7 ranked UAB Blazers. Instead a 6 for 8 four touchdown third quarter was exactly what the doctor ordered. The Blazers grabbed 35 points in the third quarter Saturday to run away from a 7-7 halftime tie with Clemson (1-5, 0-3)
"Coach came into the locker room and told me to get it together and that was it." Said Junior quarterback Adam Dyks who had only 44 yards passing on those three first half completions.

Dyks would finsih with 267 yards in the air and one interception. Freshmen running back at times helped the Stagnant UAB offense in the first half. He finished the game with 140 yards and two scores. Bill Cooley was honored with player of the game for his 149 yards and two touchdowns on four completions, Travis Jackson complimented him with 97 yards and two scores on four catches. Clemson focused their gameplan to stop[ping big play receiver Matt Ford who didnt reach the end zone for the first time all season grabbing only one catch for 21 yards.

For Clemson, they had it going for them. The always tough death valley crowd and a solid performance by quarterback L. Kiniry. Kiniry finished 11 for 22 and two touchdowns on 246 yards. Tailback D. Rust grabbed 73 yards on 19 attempts. Both Smart and Barber went over the 100 yard mark in receiving with Smart getting 104 and Barber 110 both scoring touchdowns.

The game started on a high note for the Tigers after letting UAB return the kickoff to their 40-yard line. Defensive back J. Golden grabbed a interception on the games first play. Clemson's first play saw Kiniry hit J. Smart in stride for a 82-yard score putting the Tigers up 7-0.
The Blazers would answer on the next drive but not before Dyks almost gave up another interception. Golden would grab what looked to be his second interception but a roughing the passer penalty neglected the turnover. The Blazers would then use the next six plays to run the football resulting in a Lawrence Long 11-yard touchdown tying the game.
The excited Clemosn offense was back on the field but UAB would not bulge. The defense stepped up on 3rd and 1 stopping Rust and getting the ball back. The rest of the half would see both defenses stalemating the offenses as the teams went in tied 7-7.
--
(LONG'S ABILITY TO RUN AS WELL AS THE TIGHT DEFENSIVE PLAY HELPED UAB KEEP IT CLOSE GOING INTO THE HALF)

Clemson would get the ball back to start the half a huge forced fumble by linebacker Terry Jackson that saw defensive tackle Marcus Leak recover put a UAB offense on the field trying to get rhythm from a poor first half. Dyks and company did not waste any time. He went to the air immediately finding Travis Jackson for 23 yards. The pass play stunned the Clemson crowd who sounded confused on how Jackson was wide open. A pump fake to Matt Ford on a quick screen look saw Jackson sneak down the middle of the field. Up 14-7 the defense was back out on the field and kept the pressure on a Clemson team that didnt look like they overcame the previous drives fumble as Kiniry would take two bad sacks giving the ball back to Dyks and company.
--
(UAB'S RUN STARTED AFTER A TERRY JACKSON FORCED FUMBLE THAT RESULTED IN TRAVIS JACKSON HAULING IN A TOUCHDOWN PASS)

The Blazers got back on the field, two runs by Long had the Blazers facing a 3rd and short near their own 40. playaction saw Dyks hit Cooley for a 58-yard catch and run and UAB was up 28-7 in a blink of an eye. Dont tell UAB they were up tho as they played like a team down by 21 not up 21. It seemed as if the pressure got tighter on Clemson as they completely shut down Clemson'd rush attack as well as getting another sack on Kiniry. Dyks and the quick strike offense was back on the field and this time it took them one play as Dyks hit the games MVP Bill Cooley for his second score of the quarter this time from 66-yards out. Dyks would end the quarter hitting Jackson for his second touchdown catch of the quater and the Blazers entered the fourth with a 35-7 lead.
Clemson would tack on a 87-yard touchdown reception to Barber against the Blazers second team secondary. Then UAB the defending national champs showed how to close out a game using a 11-play 82 yard drive on all runs taking off four minutes of the clock ending in a Shane Jordan 22-yard field goal. Trying to make something happen Kiniry went to the well one too many times, Adam Love would break the school record intercepting his 17th career pass and his fourth of the season. Trying to still run the clock out tailback Lawrence Long ripped off a 66-yard score to close the game out.
--
(PRESSURE ON KINIRY WOULD FINALLY FORCE A TURNOVER AS ADAM LOVE GRABBED A SCHOOL RECORD 17TH INTERCEPTION OF HIS CAREER)

The Blazers improve to 6-0 and 4-0 in the SEC, its expected that they'll be in the top 5 after this week. The defending champs close out the 5-game road trip as they head back to South Carolina next week this time in Columbia to take on the Gamecocks.

WHAT ABOUT US?
RHATIGAN FEELS HIS BLAZERS ARE THE TEAM TO BEAT:
Photobucket
  • Enough Talk about Bama, enough with Wisconsin, Oregon, cant even mention Texas anymore after their loss. The champs are back in the mix and want their due respect. "Last I checked, we're defending champs!" Rhatigan said on a conference call with Mike and Mike this morning. After two near losses by Southern Miss and Mississippi State the champs look to have turned the curve. Two more road games and they finsh the season with four straight home games a place where they have yet to lose under Rhatigan's watch. "It'll still be tough for us, we travel to Florida, then at home we have Ole Miss, Georgia and Louisville. Our guys have to be ready week in week out." Said Rhatigan. When asked if they'll repeat Rhatigan had this to say. "I know a few ofour guys are listening, I tell them to be confident in everything they do but within the parameters of our system. I think we have the team to repeat but its up to them to get 'er done." The Blazers are back in the top 5 and are very well one of the favorites to win.
AROUND THE NCAA:
  • SEC West on the line when #7 Ole Miss travels to Tuscaloosa
  • Utah hopes to bounce back against #2 Oregon

GAME OF THE WEEK:

#7 Ole Miss (5-0, 2-0) at Alabama (5-0, 3-0)
  • We've seen Bama on the national stage with impressive wins over Boise State, Georgia and Florida. We know what that offense led by Ryan and Childress can do. We know that Bama has one of the best defensive front sevens in all of college football. But we dont know too much about Ole Miss. The rebels claim to fame is a 28-24 win over then ranked Fresno State. Their opponents win/loss record is 7-15. But dont tell them that. Ole Miss ranks fifth in points per game at 41. Their defense ranks in front of Alabama's #3 defense with the #2 ranking. Their pass defense is equally impressive with the #1 ranking. Ole Miss will need to find a way to get quarterback Gary Cameron time, hes one of the most sacked qb's in the conference at 16 facing a tough pass rush again this week. Running back Kevin Reed leads the conference in rushing yards and touchdowns (674, 11td) he may be the wild card for the upset.

BLAZERS CONTINUE PREPARATIONS FOR GAMECOCKS:
BLAZERS KNOW THEY CANT OVER LOOK SOUTH CAROLINA:



UAB's Adam Dyks in ction against Clemson, Dyks leads the country in passing yards and touchdown passes

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- The UAB football team continued to work on its game plan for South Carolina during Wednesday's practice. The Blazers practiced for approximately two hours during the morning session at the UAB Practice Fields, working out in helmets and shells.
UAB head coach Travis Rhatigan was generally pleased with how his team practiced under gray skies and cooler temperatures. But know they not need to over-look to next week's Florida game.
"It was a typical Wednesday for us," Rhatigan said. "We have been working on our assignments, tendencies and recognition of what South Carolina is going to try and do. I was pleased with what I saw in that area. We were just in helmets today, so we are trying to get a little fresh and healthy. Overall, it was a good day. Everything was for South Carolina, we haven't a care in the world for the Gators at this moment."
The Blazers defensive secondary surprised senior Corner Adam Love with a shave cream pie after the practice. Love broke the school's all time record for interceptions with his 17th career pick last week, he's tied with junior safety Dominique Rhodes for the team lead with four on the year. "(laughing) Its all good, we have a very experienced group that allows me to make plays and take chances." Said Love.
The Blazers also worked on a lot of one on one drills for the offense. "There's no question we have one of the best quarterbacks in the country." Offensive coordinator Rashad Stevenson said. "But as teams watch more film on us, they'll definitely trying to get in our receivers faces and mess up our timing, also with Lawrence's (long) great play, teams will man us and stack the box. Our receivers need to be ready for the one on coverage."

Mike Mason committed to the University of Alabama at Birmingham on Monday. He is the second offensive linemen to commit to the defending national champions. The Vestavia Hills High School athlete is rated as a three star and is currently ranked the 27th guard in the country. "Mike is the type of athlete we look for here at UAB." Head coach Travis Rhatigan said. "He has great quickness and the ability to be coached to get better. He will definitely help us with his presence as we continue to get better." Mason Stands at 6'2 293 pounds, he chose UAB over in-state rival Troy and Utah. "We feel he is a great steal for us." Said offensive coordinator Rashad Stevenson. "Anytime you can get a kid thats floating under the radar like Mike, especially with him being in-state, is key. We have schools like Auburn, and Bama as well as Troy in-state so these kids take it personnel when those schools over look them. We're glad he chose to further his career with us."

(GAME NOTES)
UAB HOPES TO KEEP ROLLING THROUGH THEIR ROAD TRIP AS THEY FACE SOUTH CAROLINA
-
The Gamecocks are struggling, but dont tell that to starting tailback John Waters who said earlier this week they feel they can beat UAB. Waters and the Ganecocks will need help. They face the nations top scoring offense and the nations top passer in Adam Dyks who has passed for a nation best 1,705 yards and 22 touchdowns. When it comes to taking the ball away South Carolina is last in the SEC with only 8 takeaways compared to UAB's league leading 17. That means the Gamecocks will need to be sound on offense and stingy on defense. UAB brings in an arsenal of pass catchers as three of their receivers all have 6 touchdowns grabs and when they arent on tailback Lawrence Long is on his 8.5 ypc leads the conference and his 9 rushing scores have him second. This is a battle of the SEC's last two champions. Its a road game and as you know its tough to win on the road in the SEC so to that gives the Gamecocks some hope, but a hot Blazers team could say otherwise.

(MCCOLLUM AND PATRICK LOOK FOR THE REFS SIGNAL AS LOVE LOOKS ON DURING SATURDAY'S GAME)

Columbia, SC - A three touchdown first half by quarterback Adam Dyks was quickly overshadowed by a near flawless performance by the UAB Blazers (7-0, 5-0). Three interception returns for scores as well as a fumble recovery in the end zone had Clemson (2-5, -3) looking for answers. Adam Love led the way with three interceptions including a school record 96-yard return for a score. "We're on top of our game now." Love said. "It took us a few weeks to adjust but now our defense is really starting to get this thing figured out."

Quarterback Adam Dyks had another stellar game passing he ball despite only throwing it 12 times. He was 7-12 with 229 yards passing and three touchdowns he was picked off on the games first possession. Limited touches was the norm for the whole offense who only saw the field for just over 8 minutes. Running back Lawrence Long carried the ball 13 times for 72 yards and a fourth quarter touchdown run from 39 yards out. Ford and Jackson both grabbed three catches, Ford for 120 and a score while Travis Jackson had 77 yards and two scores. Cooley grabbed a 74 yard touchdown on his only catch of the day.

South Carolina's J. Pittman struggled mightily against the ones from UAB. He was sacked 6 times and threw four interceptions on 15 of 29 passing. He would finish with 254 yards majority of coming in the fourth quarter as UAB put in their backups. Despite the score and long day, tailback J. Waters finished with 160 yards rushing on 18 carries adding a score. Receiver D. Little let the receivers with 7 receptions for 118 yards, J. Miller grabbed 81 yards on three receptions.

It started typical of a Blazers game, Adam Dyks threw a interception three plays into the game. Then South Carolina would drive inside UAB's 10-yard line. three straight runs for Waters yielded a 4th and 1. Pittman then tried a playaction but was blown up by defensive tackle John Rhoden who grabbed the 4th down sack. Dyks would then right the ship and drive the Blazers 92 yards that included a 44-yard pass play to Matt Ford, then another 20 yard run by Lawrence Long before ending in a 9-yard touchdown pass to Travis Jackson putting UAB up 7-0. The Gamecocks were able to get a field on the next drive but a great kick return by Travis Barnes set up UAB one and done drive with no time left on the clock as Dyks hit Ford on their favorite route the deep post, Ford would run it in from 58-yards out to put the Blazers up 14-3.

The second quarter started off terrible for the Gamecocks who saw their first of four turnovers for the game. RS-Freshmen cornerback Matt Gatewood who seemingly intercepted a Pittman pass falling back, he would gather himself and race 66-yards for the pick six. South Carolina would then have the ball for what seemed like an eternity grabbing two field goals, then Dyks would do magic once again this time at the end of the second quarter when he hit Bill Cooley for a 74 yard score down the sideline to put UAB up at the half 28-9.

(MATT GATEWOOD'S 2ND QUARTER INTERCEPTION RETURN WOULD BE THE FIRST OF THREE FOR THE BLAZERS)

Despite being up 28-9, UAB's offense was rarely on the field in the first half, and that would be the case as well in the second half. South Carolina, who was having some success with Waters running the ball got back into scoring position and inside the Blazers 10. But Cornerback Adam Love would grab his team leading 5th interception when he jumped a quick out route, Love would then sprint 96-yards breaking the school record just set weeks ago by safety Josh Brown. The ensuing drive saw the gamecocks start at their own five yard line after a clipping penalty, Linebacker Timi McCollum perhaps had his best game this year, grabbing 13 tackles (8 solo) and three sacks. No sack was bigger then when he forced a Pittman fumble that rolled into the endzone as juco transfer defensive end John Patrick would jump on it for the UAB score giving UAB its third score on defense as the third quarter ended.

(ADAM LOVE AND TIMI MCCOLLUM STEPPED UP HUGE MAKING BIG TIME DEFENSIVE PLAYS FOR UAB)

The defense wasn't finished with the fourth quarter starting, or Adam Love wasn't for the most part. On South Carolina's first play to open the fourth Love worked his magic again grabbing his second interception of the day and returning it for his second score of the day from 36-yards out. The Blazers were up 49-9 to start the fourth. Love would get the hat trick on his last play of the day intercepting Pittman for the third time but he was immediately tackled. Back up quarterback Marques Wright found Travis Jackson from 48-yards out to put UAB up 56-9 in the fourth quarter. With the two's in across the board on defense South Carolina finally had some success two rushing scores, as Pittman and Waters would get in the zone, Long added a 39-yard run to close out the game and the Blazers without much offense on the field dominated the Gamecocks.

"Its a testiment to our hard work." Head coach Travis Rhatigan said, "We showed how good of a team we could be today and now its time to turn focus to the gators."
The Blazers head to gainesville for their last road game of the season after five straight. The Blazers are now 7-0 and 5-0 in conference play.
