Who will Alabama lose to? I agree with the original poster, don’t see anyone giving them any problems.

glad to be able to watch KY/WKU, hope that ESPNnews continues to carry games after week 3.

Bammers keep getting breaks on their scheduling, it’s hard not to win 12 games….next year they have 3 bye weeks!!! BUCK FAMA

You’re right Dale….we save our gravy games for the end of the year……Chattanooga Auburn etc

All you have to do is beat us. Come on and put us in our place.
Otherwise shut up and enjoy
ROLL TIDE!! Bama haters, this seasons for you. A three-fer.

@~<k bama haters…!! Your team is just looser…! Losers just grip all the time…!! Roll Tide..!!

Bama beat Arkansas … They fired their coach, Bama beat Kentucky … They fired their coach,
Bama beat Tennessee …they fired their coach, Bama beat Notre Dame and the Pope resigned!
To bad the White House doesn’t have a team !!!!

every body that does not go for Alabama crimson roll tide is sico because Alabama igoing to win every single year and if u are an Alabama fan go job

Yo Bob, that’s an instant Classic! Maybe we can use some of the ‘money saved’ in the ‘sekester’ and throw ’em a team together before they flush the whole country down the ‘terlet’.
