Rammer what?

100 yard – Pick 6!


The Dogs are riding High.


This one’s for Donna.  I call it “It’s OK, Big Fella”

I know the rest of the world probably doesn’t care but State Beat Bama for the second year in a row (first time in who knows when).  The score was 17-12.  The dogs had Emory Bellard back as an honorary captain…He’s the inventor of the wishbone.  And one of his teams beat Bama 6-3 when Bama was #1 in the country and Sly Croom was an assistant coach at Bama.  It appeared that we opened up with the wishbone and promptly put the ball on the ground.  That ended up in Bama getting an easy field goal.

We stunk offensively except for eating up a lot of clock and getting Saban really ticked as we seemed to run the ball between the 20’s with ease.

Not the most exciting Bulldog victory ever but it was the loudest I’ve heard the stadium in a long, long time.

    You are too sweet to post a picture just for me. It was not the most exciting game…..Your defense played great….Our offense well you know. The worst part is I wasted my last beautiful day at the beach watching that game…..But yesterday the best team (at least on this given Saturday) won….congratulations.

    Tom and I watched the game and it was a great win! I wondered if you were there cowbelling. It seemed noisy on camera, for sure.

    That run after the interception was amazing. Really turned the game around.

    Congrats, State! (Sorry, Donna)


    P. S. Two of our kids went to State at the same time, too, so we’re big fans.

    *** typo alert ***

    that should read: “one pound 8 oz’s.”

    this makes me think of the line my daughter asked me. she said, “how would you know if there was a typo in the dictionary?” i was stumped.

    Coach of the Year! I’m proud of Sly!

    Yeah, We are the state champions of Alabama…beat, UAB, Auburn and Bama all in the same year. Sly’s a good guy too, that is what makes it sweet.

    Sorry I missed you at the game. I will be at the Ole Miss game. Send me an email and I’ll tell you where we are seating. Go State!

    This is great, but cannot see how the Vols lost to this team.

    Matthew…I too am a Vol fan, but bama is a good team, State played Tennessee close, and with one break could have beaten them.

    I agree with your Rammer what? Believing Thomas, fantastic post.
