Monday Ravings : 11/17/2008 
Posted on November 17, 2008 at 09:23 AM.


Well it's another Monday after another solid weekend. I must say, the latter half of 2008 has been pretty decent. I got to see history being made in the presidential election with the election of the first "openly" biracial prez. Britney Spears is starting to look good again, and the Tide just keeps on rolling.

Also, I got my first OS Vets 2K league game in Saturday night with fellow OSer and talented artist Bornindamecca. The good feelings I had with digital AI were founded as he led the Pistons with 32 points and also adding 5 assists, 3 rebounds and a steal. Unfortunately though, Rip Hamilton got hurt early in the 1st quarter and it looks like he'll be out for the year . Still, Bornindamecca and his Spurs played great and it was a lot of fun. The best part of the night: Me and Born agreeing to take a "tv timeout" to watch Beyonce work and wiggle on Saturday Night Live . Now that's a true sim experience.

Back to my Bama boys, these guys have to be the most disrespected #1 team in like, ever. All they do is win their games and all people can do is rave about flashy offenses elsewhere. Flashy is fine if you can get it, but Bama doesn't have the big playmakers like Florida, or the dynamic offensive schemes like Texas Tech. We do what we do by playing a fundamentally solid game. We establish our ground game that opens up short to medium pass yardage. We play aggressive defense and force mistakes. All we do is win.

It does remind me of another time though. Back in 1992, Alaama was doing the same thing. They weren't flashy, but they won. Derrick Lassic gave us solid yardage pm the ground, like Glen Coffee is doing now. That team was led by solid QB who limited mistakes in Jay Barker, just like John Parker Wilson today. Also, there were flashier teams like Florida St. and Miami who the media gave preference to because of said flashiness, similar to the Texas Tech's and Florida's today. Well, all Alabama did that year was take it to that much hyped Miami offense in the Sugar Bowl, beating them 34-13. I am not saying that's what will happen this year, but I will say I am expecting a similar finish.

Well enough about that, things will sort themseves out. I'm just glad of the job Coach Saban is doing in just his second year. Now's not a good time to be a Bama *****, or maybe it is since we'll be giving you plenty to hate on.

It seems that nobody in the country is tougher and stronger than Bama in the trenches. Plus they do have some playmakers on that team. Better buckle that chinstrap when you play them. Should be a fantastic Championship game against Florida. Winner gets to play for it all most likely.
