    Arkansas at Alabama

    Could this be a trap game? No, it isn't. Arkansas doesn't have the tools to keep up with Bama. Austin Allen was beaten up so badly he didn't play in the 4th quarter yesterday at South Carolina. He left the game with only 1 TD to his credit. It looked as though the O-line wasn't even trying to sustain their blocks...One bump and that was it. Allen continues to be hesitant in the pocket. The offense has given up on Allen, and with Allen's on and off finger pointing attitude, I'm not surprised.

    One bright spot, 6'7", 270 lb redshirt freshman QB, Cole Kelley, led Arkansas to two 4th quarter TD's. If Arkansas is to have any chance against Bama, Kelley has to be the starting QB. If you think SC beat up Allen, which they did, Bama will break his bones. No one is going to break Kelley's bones, he is just too big and strong. Kelley went 8 for 13 for 140 yards with 1 interception.

    I've got Bama 42-7 if Allen starts. I'll take Bama 35-24 if Kelley gets the start.

    It's called fan. Go back to August and you will read Allen was the best QB in the SEC.

    Re: Arkansas at Alabama

    Regardless who starts at QB, I'll be shocked if it's an 11-point game. Bama beat Vandy by 59, OM by 63. TAMU is a good squad, and Bama beat them on road by eight (should've been 15 without the late game TD that looked to me as if Kirk's knee hit out of bounds as he gained possession but that's irrelevant.)

    Actually, thread was titled as a question, "Is Austin Allen The SEC's Best QB".

    It wont be an 11 point game if Allen Ant starts. The team thrown in the towel on him. But the Hogs will play hard with a renewed spirit if Goliath Kelley gets the start.

    Talent isn't there, and after a lackluster ending to TAMU game, Bama is looking to make a point.

    The games that tend to slip up on you are the games you don't expect to slap you in the face. Just ask Oklahoma. The 2-2 Cyclones beat them and the Cyclones only had wins over Akron and Northern Iowa. Arkansas' best hope is if the Bama players come in thinking they just have to show up to win.

    If I'm Bama, I'm simply hoping Ant Allen is ready to start, and I don't have to adjust my defense to a Goliath sized QB.

    If the game was already decided, as we know, there would be no need to play.

    That was my point. Bama might have bought their own press a bit before the TAMU game and the Aggies showed them you can't just show up and win. So I expect Bama to be fully motivated and ready to make a point v. Arkansas. Whether it's Allen or the other kid, if he's not a mobile QB and you don't have an elite OL, it's gonna be a long day for any QB, esp one making his first start. Do you honestly want a kids first start to be on the road against a Bama defense that's finally getting close to healthy and had their asses chewed by Saban all week? It could crush a kids confidence before his career even really gets started.

    I would also point out to you that TAMU is playing better since that Laughayet game. It took them that long to get over UCLA.
