Nov. 22 - best weekend of SEC football ever?

Official 2014-2015 Atlanta Braves Offseason Thread

12 November 2014 - 06:18 PM

The Braves are about to blow Posted Image up this offseason. Justin Upton, Evan Gattis, Jason Heyward, BJ Upton and Mike Minor all on the chopping block.


Personally, I'm excited for it. We aren't going to be able to resign both Justin and Jason next offseason anyways, so we might as well trade one (or both) for a huge return. Also, Gattis would get us a boatload.

Word is we are looking for top-flight young MLB-ready pitchers, and top prospects. Probably about to punt the 2015 season, but we need to replenish the farm for 2016 and beyond.

Iron Bowl will kick off at 6:45 PM - prime time

10 November 2014 - 07:56 PM

First time EVER that Bryant-Denny Stadium will see an Iron Bowl kick off under the lights. Very interesting.

All the IB's since 2000 have been broadcast on CBS at 2:30 except for two, '03 and '07, and those were both at JHS. The last times Alabama played a "home" Iron Bowl at night, 1998 and 1996, were when the series was still at Legion Field.

We exhausted our limit of games on CBS - no SEC team can be broadcast on CBS more than five times a year. MSU is our 5th. So CBS has to take the Egg Bowl, ESPN gets the Iron Bowl.

We learn more about this team each week...

..and what I learned last night is that this team responded in the face of the ultimate adversity to find a way to win.

The script of this matchup followed the 2012 game almost to a T. LSU had the momentum at the beginning, largely because of the emotion of playing at home. Alabama settled down and controlled the second quarter, just like we did in '12. The second half was DOMINATED in every single way - except the scoreboard - by LSU. Their offensive line pushed us around, their physical runners kept moving the chains, our defense seemingly could never get off the field on third down, Blake and the WRs weren't on the same page, and we made some critical mistakes.

Then Yeldon fumbled. And at that point, I was certain we'd lose. It just wasn't foreseeable that we'd escape with a victory.

But after Yeldon fumbled, it was as if a switch was flipped, and this team knew exactly what it had to do. Defense had a job. We needed three stops and three timeouts. They did it.

Then Blake comes out, after being off-target and on a different page than his WRs for a lot of the night, and he played his best ball on that final drive. We did it without Amari Cooper, which was incredible when you consider the volume of passes that have gone his way. OJ Howard, Christion Jones and DeAndrew White all came up huge. The biggest play might have been Blake's scramble on 3rd and 4.

Griff's body language was about as good as you could have, coming out to attempt a game-tying field goal in Death Valley. He knew he had it.

And when Reuben Foster nailed Fournette on the return and the sideline erupted, I suddenly had the opposite feeling that I had after Yeldon's fumble: I was certain we'd WIN.

This team got pushed around last night, and make no mistake about it...we have a lot of problems that need fixing and not much time to fix them...but what impressed me was that we played our best football when our best was needed. In crunch time. In Death Valley. We were not shaken. We rose to the occasion.

This team can win a championship.

Latest SEC Playoff outlook - are we down to three contenders?

01 November 2014 - 09:23 PM

Mississippi State, Auburn and Alabama? If so, are we really going to get 2+ teams in the Final Four? 'Bama and MSU still have to play, as do 'Bama and Auburn. The loser of the Iron Bowl is definitely out. For that matter, Bama and Auburn are basically playing an elimination game each week now. MSU might be able to survive a close loss to 'Bama.

Is there any chance at all a 2-loss UGA or OM could wiggle their way back into the discussion? I think UGA would be the most likely, if they could beat Auburn and then beat either MSU or 'Bama in ATL. But we'd need chaos to happen ahead of them.

The picture gets a little clearer each weekend.
