another typical friday night: Bama wins
As usual Arkansas was my 1st SEC opponent and they are always ranked and always undefeated. With SVSW out of the way, it was now time to focus on the SEC West title. And my Defense was sloppy as was my running game. I was down 21-10 at the end of the first half, but the 3rd quarter started with a 105 yard kickoff return for a TD by SR WR Lawrence Curry. Curry (pictured right) was just a two star athlete out of h.s. but he has worked his way to the #3 WR. Definitely a personal favorite of mine. From this point on Terrence Graves took over, throwing for 125 yards and 1 TD, while rushing for 100 and 1 TD against a very tough Arkansas D. K Justin Brooks hit the 2nd game winner of his career for a 31-28 Bama victory. FR Chris Richard was not having the same success as Jason Weaver; he dropped a lot of catches in his 1st SEC game, and a road game too. SR Lawrence Curry, identical SO's Wes Holley and David Wayne all stepped up in the clutch, making Richard's spot as the #2 WR not so certain. But he's okay with that because he's a good guy.
Hopefully Richard will get his confidence back up in a non-conference matchup in Corvallis against Oregon St. Their fans have been giving CL a hardtime on youtube message boards. (Wow 445 views and 12 comments as of post time, people are watching) They are jerks, but in a good way. Nice soundtrack.
Working all weekend but will hopefully get a break to catch the SEC Championship and USC vs UCLA. Oh and the cory infatuation is put on hold as I have a new pseudo celeb crush, just look at my myspace top 5 and for once she's over 18 and not so well known (more on her later)
