Gutsiest move I ever saw, man...
Phew. Hats-off to a Crimson Tide squad that literally gave us all we could handle! I'm officially back to being one of your biggest fans again...

"That team is the most underrated in the country," Sooners co-defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said about Alabama on the field after the game. "And what an environment to play in."

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

SHHH! SHHH! Don't tell me! I have it on Tivo 'cuz I had to watch the wood-shedding the 'Noles gave Maryland! No one tell me about UF-UM either. I had to wimp out on that one at 2am so the second half is still on the Tivo! SHHH!

Luckily for me the Bucs don't stomp a mud hole in Philly until tomorrow or I'd never get caught up!

Go Noles!

I was the only Miami fan last night at our friends house. I had to keep quiet most of the night and I was freaking dying. I think everyone in Miami invoked the spirit of the Orange Bowl, the streak and pryaed to whatever Mono or Poly related god that they could.

I love college football.

Great win! We ended up staying up until 2:30 am to watch our tape of it since we missed it live - but this was just an amazing game.

I'm going to have to disagree. That move wasn't half as gutsy as it was smart. If you read the quotes (and I know you have) Stoops just found a hole in the 'Bama punt-block formation and used it.

I can't even begin to explain what kind of wind that took out of the home crowd, though. I've been going to Alabama games for four years now, and Bryant-Denny was the loudest I'd ever heard a stadium get when the OU punt team came out onto the field. We could FEEL the win... and if Stoops hadn't called that fake, we probably would have.

Oh well... it was one hell of a game. Y'all better go win the national championship now. Boomer Sooner.

Oh yeah, I agree -- they had been working on that play all week and almost called it on the punt you partially blocked. After that, it was lights-out. We owed you on special teams after last year, and a Stoops never forgets. It's why I'm so in love with my coach. It was a hell of a game -- and Bama gave us all we could handle and then some!

I can't even explain what it felt like to BE THERE!! My throat is STILL sore from screaming. Seriously, you guys did a great job... but all my love and pride goes to the boys in crimson and white.

Roll Tide forever! :)

Attended the Arkansas(42)-Tulsa(13) game this weekend. We got whorns next. There were SOO many "BEAT TEXAS" shirts around you'd thought they were here instead of Tulsa. At the end of the game the student section started chanting "We Want Texas, We Want Texas". Robin, I fully intend to send the whorns to you with at least one loss under their belts. GO HOGS!!!
