"It's not like we just had a terrible game and this is it, this is how we're gonna be the whole year."
- Joe Cox, in The ABHDN
It's funny how quickly things change. Just last week I felt a little bit of magic in the air. Now I feel dumb and gullible. I feel like I'm back in 2008, except this year we tackle better and lose more.
I recognize this may not be fair after one game. But having seen the product on the field I have a hard time judging on potential.
My hat is off to Oklahoma State, whom I clearly under-estimated. The game was winnable for us and turned on the sum of a lot of little things, as football games usually do.
To the team: I hope some of you guys can play better than that, or like getting embarrassed.
To Coach Richt: Why can't you fix the kickoffs?
To the refs: That was not an illegal hit. They did not get that first down. I hate you.
I can't believe Trinton Sturdivant is out for a year again. What a test the Lord has put before him.
I don't understand our offense. I'm down on Joe Cox. If you offered me 7-5 right now, I might take it. If you came with 8-4 you'd lose a finger.
I think Oklahoma State is a good team. I'd like to see what happens when Joe Cox hasn't had the flu before a game, and I'd like to see our luck change.
Still, I'll tell you the question that really bothers me, the one I'm not sure I want an answer to.
Why is Alabama so much better than us?
