Don’t Tug On Superman’s Cape,….

A Heisman run,……..

Ole Miss quarterback, Randall Mackey, had this quote to the press earlier in the week,… “Alabama is just Alabama. They’ve got a real good defense from the D-line to the secondary. There are still, I’m not going to say weaknesses, you know, they ain’t Superman. So they can be beat.” I wonder how Mr. Mackey feels now? In the video above, Trent Richardson, puts a great move on Senquez Golson behind the line of scrimmage and near the 15. Golson got used up twice on the play. The only thing separating Trent and Superman last night was Trent wasn’t wearing a cape to tug on. That was one of the best runs I’ve ever seen from anyone.

At the end of the run, Trent shows some class after scoring. He does a chest bump but after a run like that I think we all would. Then he just goes back over to the sidelines. Alabama showed more class at the end of the game when they had the ball near the 20 yard line with under 2 minutes to go in the game. There was no need to score again as the game was over. The offense took a knee 3 times and time expired. Bama players have for the past several weeks, helped up opposing players from the turf after knocking them down. Classy.

This team is playing better and seem to be on a mission. They approach each game with a business like attitude. They have played very well the past couple of games and have improved greatly on offense. The O-line is playing better and AJ McCarron is doing what the coaches want him to do and he is doing it well. He is managing the game.

I don’t know of course, what the future holds for this team. But they are special. Whether they win the SEC or not, remains to be seen. If they don’t it won’t be the end of the world because I’ll still be wearing my Crimson colors. The showdown with LSU promises to be epic. Special seasons have special moments. The run by Trent in the video is one of those special moments. RTR!!

Well, on my picking the winners, for the second straight week I was 5-0 pushing my totals to 38-5 for an 88.3% clip. Not too shabby.
