Lattimore is either the real deal or Todd Grantham will be heading back to the NFL sooner than he thought.

Now that the pain is over, I will enjoy watching Marcus the rest of the year.

Richardson was a freaking horse this week.

What does Cobb have to do for love? Does he need to actually throw a 40 yard TD pass to himself before people will take notice?

Yeah, that & do it on a week when Lattimore & T-Rich aren't going the F off.

Richardson was in absolute beast mode the other night. I have always been skeptical of the "is he better than Mark" hype because Ingram is probably my second favorite Bama player ever. Although after Sat. night it is probably neck and neck. Even my wife noticed how he was running through PSU players.

They are playing the Zips this week, right? Their 4 cupcake schedule rivals OM's. Bowl eligibility rules. :rotf:

Too bad for the season ticket holders.

Hell Demps had 255 all purpose yards and had to take special teams POW LOL It was a ridiculous week for offensive performances in the conference.

I have to say I apologize to Mike Pouncey. He is a center if this week was any indication. Perhaps week one was just growing pains.

when you are a traditional door mat for the SEC and you are in the process of turning it around yes it is. It draws recruits in and allows our program to grow. This is priority number one. We will schedule better once we get better.

There is nothing to apologize for. You knew he was a good OL. You didn't know whether he was a good center. After opening week he deserved whatever criticism he got. Now that he overcome his issue (apparently), he is deserving of the praise he receives. I am sure he wouldn't disagree with any criticism he received last week.

Maybe if we played in the big lEast we could do it.

The guy ran like a man possessed, thats for sure.

Anybody else see the Penn State player almost break his leg when it collided with Richardson's leg on the opening kickoff I believe......that was hardcore.
And this block was just sick:

I remember when this week used to bring real bantor from Vol fans. Now this is the best they got. Replying to a Gamecock fan's reply to a Kentucky fan no less. Amazing...

In UK's defense when they resigned the contract with Lville, they were going to and winning BCS bowls. We need to have 1 solid ooc BCS team and 3 cupcakes..

Cobb should have got some recognition, he threw, ran, and returned for TD's. That hardly ever happens no matter who is playing who.
