^ Yeah, considered a home game for Bama but it'll be played here in Atlanta, not in Tuscaloosa. From here, Tallahassee is only about an hour further away than Tuscaloosa, so expect it to be packed full of garnet and gold as well.

Either way, I have the feeling the Tide win this one.

Ohio St didn't look that good tonight. Actually looked less impressive than last year. Barret still struggling with accuracy and deep balls. I'm sure they will catch their stride in the Big 10 as the season goes on.
Ohio State will be just fine. They were starting 4 new DBs, playing against a veteran QB/WR squad. Indiana won a ton of 50/50 balls. Their WRs weren't open, they just made the plays. And there were 3 tipped balls that were caught, that's not skill or schemes, that's luck.

I'll tell you the only thing that worries me is Ohio State's receivers. They cannot get open or make catches to save their life.

Also JK Dobbins will be a primetime name by end of season. Hes better than Zeke Elliott or Maurice Clarrett at the same stage of their careers.

Btw, rule #1 of this thread, you can't criticize without offering who you root for.

Lol, do you have enough players to field a 2 deep team at this point? How many redshirt will you have to burn?

At least Michigan is young on defense, so you'll probably score points on them early.

I have really high hopes for Francois this year. He was just a freshmen as well.

It will be a huge turn out for both sides. The things I would do to be a part of this experience in the Mercedes Benz Stadium (sell a kidney).

That kid looked good for his debut. He's definitely a work horse with nice footwork.

dude, footwork, speed, balance, agility, change of direction. This is a 5-tool RB... Most RBs are a one-trick pony, usually speed or ability to break tackles.

ehh...when I attend these non-conference neutral field games, it's evident the fans in attendance are big-money alumni. They'll fucking drop $1000 for the weekend for just this game.

Proximity may matter, but ultimately, big time schools will sell their allotment.

Hey Mookie, shouldn't Mr. Taylor be more concerned about FSU's d-line?

You will be in Pasadena, which is my neck of the woods. Lots of suggestions it all depends on if you've been here before and how much you want to drive (did you bring the M2)?

If you want to stay local, Old Town Pasadena has decent eats and bars.

Hollywood is always good for nightlife, especially if you haven't been, but I'm out of touch with the club/bar scene these days, so you're better off googling.

A more upcoming area is the Arts District - there's a few bars there and the scene is more hipster.


Aside from that Beat the Bruins (actually I'd probably root against you for the sake of the Pac-12. Trojan here). I have a cousin that is Aggie and will be at the game w/ his fam too.

If you spot a LBB M2 around town, that's probably me.

Fight On!

Ha, for sure! He can troll all he wants, but he better be able to back up his own when the time comes. Dude is a beast but so is our D-line. It could be one of the strongest and deepest in the nation.

Damn Bama is tough. Lots of bad decisions but I really hope Francois is OK : that's a season defining injury.

And our special teams were an embarrassment.

I didn't watch the entire game, but it was not what I was expecting. Any updates on Francois status?

I really believe we could've kept up, but our special teams really made them implode.

We needed to establish a more diverse offensive strategy by establishing the run more and picking up the blitz just to keep Bama thinking rather than passing 90% of the game (although Francois and WR's were on point).

Francois' injury put the nail in the coffin. Sadly, no word yet. The longer it gets drawn out the worse it will be
