I'm thinking it's gonna be Alabama, 38-17. RTR!
Comparing Puffy to Quincy just doesn't make sense. Quincy is a musician (and a darn fine one at that), whereas Puffy is a pop culture icon. There is most definitely a difference!
And Kimbrel is unquestionably the best in the majors right now. Glad I scored my Kimbrel Rookie of the Year bobble head doll during the Satans-Braves series, because it'll most likely be worth some coin one day.
I'm glad Santana could get his big moment after such a good career (and after the braves chased him in the second inning earlier this season with somewhere around a 17 ERA for that game), but that "foul" ball down the third base line was fair, and his defense made some amazing plays behind him. No hitters are ridiculously difficult to pull off though, so congrats to him, his D, and the third base ump for pulling it off. Go Braves!
*Freddie needs to get his act together on that call...
One correction to your spot on the Braves, Jay: Venters got the win last night, not Beachy. Beachy did have a great game though! And Venters is now 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA! I just don't understand why Medlen isn't in the rotation yet. He could easily be our number 2 starter behind Huddy. Freddie needs to get his act to get on that call, me thinks.
Redlegs, don't forget that the Bear was known to be a real jerk at times and tough on his players, and he's a legend. "Heros come and go, kid, but legends never die." And like it or not Saban is a winner on the field, and that is the name of the game.
P.s. there are stupid fans of every team.
5er, do you know if Brady is the first QB to throw a TD pass and safety in one half of the superbowl? And I still maintain the belief that Peyton is the king of reading and adjusting to defensive strategy.
Sometimes I like to pretend all the years between Gene Stallings and Nick Saban never really happened. Obviously, I couldn't be happier with the coach we've got now. Roll Tide!
I'm not sure if you saw my post on yesterday's thread this morning before this thread went up, but I'm picking Vandy 14-10.
Also, I'm not a believer in a team being required to win a conference title game to make it to the BCS title game. What about all the teams who don't have a conference title game available? Kind of a double standard there, right? I HATE THE BCS!!!!! This is yet another great reason why we need a playoff system. 5-at-10, please fix the college football postseason!
