42-14! THE TIDE ROLLS in the Iron Bowl!!!
Eli Gold said it best: "The 76th Iron Bowl is wrapped in Crimson."
offense failed to score on our defense (Auburn’s 14 points came on a TD from an Alabama fumble and a kickoff return that went the distance.) Trent Richardson rushed for a career high 203 yards, proving to any objective and fair-minded voter that he deserves to win the Heisman Trophy. BAMA
also demonstrated once again that they are clearly one of the two best teams in the nation. If the voters are fair, we should certainly be headed for a rematch with LSU
in the National Championship.
There are a lot of highlights to point out from today’s beat down of the Tigers: Senior Brad Smelley had 6 catches for 86 yards and a touchdown, the best game of his Capstone career; Dee Milliner had an interception that he returned 36 yards for TD; and as I already mentioned, Trent Richardson rushed for his career high of 203 yards.
There’s a lot to be proud of today, and it was a long 365 days waiting for this sweet savor of revenge. But of all the things that make me proud to be a BAMA
fan today, the most significant and important thing is this: We won with character, class and honesty.
