Sunday Hangover: Tennessee

This game was over at halftime, possibly at the end of the first quarter when the Crimson Tide was up 21 to 0. The score was 35 to 0 at the half, and the teams tied in the second half by scoring 10 points each. 

I was hoping for another shutout, and I know that's greedy, but besides a dumb fumble by Drake near the goal line, Alabama pretty much did what they wanted. 

Norwood had an outstanding game, and Cooper started out the first quarter right with a 54-yard touchdown. 

Oddly enough, no back had a 100-yard game--Drake with 89 and Yeldon with 72 yards. 

Trey DePriest, a linebacker who doesn't get enough credit in my opinion, had a good game.

On the defensive side of the ball, true freshman Eddie Jackson is obviously in Saban's doghouse because he hasn't played much at all lately. Cyrus Jones got a lot of work at corner in this game, and then later John Fulton played when the second-teamers came into the game. The rumor I heard on the InterWebs is that Jackson's not taking his academics seriously enough, so he's riding the pine because of it.  

Next up is a bye and then LSU the week after at Bryant-Denny.
