Oh Yes! Ugga is not happy! I get to talk to my Uncle in Fort Oglethorpe about the game. He will not be happy! The ESPN people are talking about #3 in the nation. Why not #1. I also get to talk with my family in Winston Co. They will be happy. Roll Tide Roll!

We did it! Roll Tide! This time I walked 25,575 steps- I paced the floor back and forth so much. It will be fun at the Kentucky game next week. Kentucky is un-defeated but havn't played anyone and they are not ranked.

When Bama played Clemson, I watched the game standing up near the TV stepping the whole time. I got in I think 20,000 steps that day. I was so excited. I think I actually enjoy walking now. Even though my feet hurt tremendously. Roll Tide Roll - get them Razorbacks!

I am looking forward to seeing the team on TV against Arkansas. No snaks for me during the game. Side Planks and crunches if I have to do something. NU won and MD won my teams in other conferences, but Navy lost. 3 out of 4 is not bad. MO looks like a big contender this year.

After watching Bama play last night against Western KY and also watching the Georgia - South Carolina game, I think we stand a good chance of beating those Dawgs ! Georgia did not impress me that much.

Living in a house with two Auburn fans, the only game I worry really about is the Iron Bowl. I do watch the others, but that one has the three of us all year in it's grip.

Hi thanks for all the info. and all your work. I hope we win in Knoxville this year. I have two members of my church choir that are always talking about Tenn. It seems we are off to a fair start. I think Arkansas will be the first big test. My Uncle who lives in Fort Oglethorpe is for Ga. I hope the Tide wins.

What kind of offense does Bama use?

I hope you enjoy the games you get to attend. Roll Tide Roll!

Hopefully we will win all the games, but TN, LSU, MS State, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Georgia and Auburn will be great games that will be a great challenge. This is all in my opinion. I know the Arkansas game is on National TV, I think most are televised. Last week's game was on pay-per view (we have season tickets to the home games).

The following was taken from http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/preview?game
Id=282570333
Alabama's second game of the season made its impressive opener a distant memory for Nick Saban.

The Crimson Tide's coach hopes his team can regain its opening-week form after a lackluster win last week when No. 11 Alabama hosts Western Kentucky on Saturday night.

Alabama (2-0) overwhelmed then-No. 9 Clemson 34-10 on the road in its first game, a victory that vaulted the Tide from a preseason 24th to 13th in the following poll. The young squad, however, didn't come close to matching that performance last week.

Saban's team struggled to a 20-6 home victory over Tulane, which had been forced out of New Orleans by the threat of Hurricane Gustav the prior week.

Javier Arenas returned a punt 87 yards for a touchdown and Alabama did enough to get Saban his 100th career victory, but the coach was hardly thrilled.

"It's a little disappointing. It's our goal to play with consistency … but we were unable to do that," he said. "We did not make progress as a team."

With Alabama missing injured offensive line starters Andre Smith and Marlon Davis, John Parker Wilson was under pressure all night. He was just 11-of-23 for 73 yards, although he didn't throw an interception.

"We weren't clicking," said Wilson, who helped pace the upset of Clemson by completing 73.3 percent of his passes. "We didn't execute on third downs. We're not consistent. There's a lot of little things we have to correct. It's one thing on this play, one thing on another play."

One area that doesn't appear to need any work is the return game. Arenas brought back five punts for 147 yards -- a single-game school record -- and had 65 more on two kickoffs. However, Tide running backs Mark Ingram and Glen Coffee, each of whom rushed for at least 90 yards against Clemson, combined for only 118 on 20 carries last week.

Alabama, outgained 318-172 by the Green Wave, will be looking to tighten up its defense as it faces a Western Kentucky squad coming off a strong performance in a win over Eastern Kentucky last week.

Tyrell Hayden ran for 98 yards and a touchdown to pace a ground attack that gained 248 yards, and the Hilltoppers (1-1) shut out the Colonels in the second half en route to a 37-13 victory. Allan Holland completed 24 of 40 passes for 228 yards and scored on a 6-yard run in the second quarter for Western Kentucky, which rebounded from a 31-13 loss to Indiana on Aug. 30.

"Western Kentucky has a good program and a good team, they win a lot of games and have had a lot of success in the six years that (coach) David Elson has been there," Saban said. "They run the spread offense which is a little bit of a problem because it is totally different than what we have played against to this point. It is going to be a whole new preparation for the defensive players which will hopefully be challenging to them."

For Saban, this week's contest will provide Alabama a chance to show the Tulane game was an aberration, and not an early indication that his team that will struggle to find consistency throughout the season.

"It tells me that we don't have the maturity to sort of take ownership and responsibility for playing at a high standard all the time, which is what you would like your team to do," Saban said. "We have to continue to work with our players to get that. We didn't show that maturity in this game and it is something we need to work on."

Alabama and Western Kentucky will be meeting for the first time. The Tide are 15-1 against Sun Belt Conference opponents.

Hi, I need some help here. I live far outside the Alabama market. I don't know what is going on. What is the scheduel? What teams are going to be a challange? Which teams should we defeat? What is the bowl picture like? Who are the key players? I see by the posts that someone got kicked off the team. I would rather lose than have a bad example set. My mother's team was Alabama and my father's team was Nebraska. I hope they don't have to play each other. Do you have an idea what games will be on national TV? What style of football does "Bama play. More pass than run? A balance? Formations?
