The Third Saturday in October,….

RockyBlock

The third Saturday in October means it is the Alabama-Tennessee game. his game has been played since 1901 and is an even bigger rivalry to many Alabama fans than the Iron Bowl.

Alabama holds a 48-38-7 edge in the series but both teams have had successful streaks through the years.

There are a couple of things you don’t do on the third Saturday in October. You don’t plan a wedding on that day. You don’t have a funeral either. That is unless you don’t want people to show up.

This years game will feature father against son. Sal Sunseri will guide the defense as coordinator and son Vinnie play safety for the Tide. Bama is favored by 20 points but this one could be much closer. All eyes around the nation, especially in Oregon will be pulling for the upset tonight.

On a sad note,… former Tennessee quarterback Eric Ainge has called for the Tennessee defense to step on Alabama quarterback, AJ McCarron's knee. The Tide QB will start after having a sore knee from last weeks game. In the words of Ainge,…  "I say it all the time. Nasty, attitude, get after it. Do something crazy," Ainge said. "The first time AJ McCarron drops back, tell one of your boys you've got fifteen on this one. He's got a sore knee, go step on it." Click here for article,...

Roll Tide Roll and y’all have a Crimson Saturday!!

  1. I prefer to think those who wear orange this time of year are just in the Halloween spirit...
