My CRIMSON TIDE
struggled today against a good Arkansas team, but we showed championship character in the end. A lackluster, lethargic, and uninspired first half really put us behind the eight ball. We were losing 17-7 at halftime. In the second half we finally went to our bell cow, Heisman winner Mark Ingram, and it paid dividends. Our defense also adjusted nicely, and we squeaked it out. A courageous call by Saban to go four it on fourth and inches inside our own territory with under a minute to play sealed it for us. I say if you can't push a guy four inches for two seconds you don't deserve to win! McElroy got the first down on a QB sneak, and that was it.
That being said, we can't play like that anymore and expect to win. It's a grinding schedule from here on: Florida, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Tennesssee, LSU... etc. We're not as good as all the hype, and the quicker we realize it the better off we'll be. I think Saban will take care of that!

right now. I've kind of adopted them because of Peter. I really want them to do well (unless they meet the TIDE
