May December Romance

Ahem, here we go again. Demi and Ashton, Timothy Hutton and a then 15 year old Natalie Portman in Beautiful Girls, 20ish youtube addicts and lonelygirl15,, and my 2009 Bama team: What do they all have in common?

They're all successful May December Romances

Bama came into the 2009 season ranked #15 with a veteran D (only 2 underclassmen in the starting 11) and with an offence of first time starters, all of whom in the skill positions were Freshman's and Sophmores. Much like Demi and Ashton & of course Portman and Hutton, the two have blended togeather in perfect harmony to bring about an amazing 4-0 start with a #8 ranking and #6 media ranking. Quick recaps:

#15 Alabama vs. Colorado St. - Tuscaloosa
I scheduled the Rams, because real life Texas QB Jevan Snead had transferred there in my dynasty. This was to better prepare for my matchup in Austin. Redshirt SO Chad Arnold beat out Cali native, SR Jimmy Barnes for the starting QB spot with an outstanding spring game and an 87 OVR rating, compared to Barnes's 85. Bama would also see three true freshman with significant playing time with New Hampshire product Steve Ferguson (80 ovr) and Dominic Coles (80 over) splitting carries and Brandon Luke (84 ovr) in the #2 WR spot. SO Joel "JT" Thompson was in the #1 slot. Coles played well with 110 yards and 1 TD, while Ferguson added in 78 for 2 TDs. Coles = White; Feguson = Bush; Colorado St = no problem
Bama 37, CSU 7

#15 Alabama vs. Ole Miss - Oxford, MS
Back in the Oxford again, this would prove no problem as Arnold went 12-15 with 139 yards and 2 TDs. Luke got his first TD and sad news as Defensive captain and Hoover High alum Cory Reamer ended his career with a torn MCL.
Bama 35, Ole Miss 7

#15 Alabama vs. #5 Texas - Austin, TX
Wow is all I have to say. DE and London Ontario native Quentin Rawls along with SO 5 star DE Jason Parker (Texas native) took advantage of two FR tackles and Colt McCoy could not get his offence going. CB Jimmy Fernandez played tough on Texas's star WR allowing only 1 TD. The offence was not statistically impressive but they had good field position on ever play scoring an amazing 37 points!!!!!
Bama 37, UTA 7

#9 Alabama vs. # 12 Arkansas - Tuscaloosa
This rainy day game saw several fumbles on both sides of the ball, however FR Ferguson finally had his breakthrough game with 107 yards and 1 TD. And on his first EVER punt return, Ferguson produced a 55 yard TD. Defence played well with Fernandez making several key plays.
Bama 24, ARK 7

Things look good so far. I have switched to Pittsburgh's playbook from Utahs, to make better use of my running game. My secondary is amazing (all from the same recruiting class) with R-SO Miles and JR Fernandez with 3 INTs each. And my FR RBs have lived up to the hype, Ferguson now has an 82 ovr rating with 314 yards and 5 TDs, while Coles has 297 yards and 4 TDs

Veteran D + Youth Movement = Bama's 4-0 start

In other news, Alabama's official site has undergone a makeover, I like the new layout, check it out. That's all for now, I'm off to the beach as I've spent my whole off day playing video games. RIP Crocodile Hunter.

  • This is an awesome start - is this the year? Quentin Rawls is my favorite player in college football...he smuggles beers down to the US when he goes back to London for Canadian Thanksgiving...
