Alabama Football: The Iron Bowl neither program wanted to play

Alabama Football: Animosity between the Crimson Tide and Auburn has never been higher than it was in 1908. The result was 41 seasons of avoidance. There are so many great Iron Bowl stories from an Alabama football perspective. Some fans today complain it is not an ‘Iron Bowl’ and has not been since it left […] Alabama Football: The Iron Bowl neither program wanted to play - Bama Hammer - Bama Hammer - An Alabama Crimson Tide Community - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Alabama Crimson Tide: Iron Bowl spread not biggest story of the week

Alabama Crimson Tide: a three-plus touchdown spread in the Iron Bowl is not the biggest story of the week. Look to the ‘Plains’ for something more. Per the Action Network, the Alabama Crimson Tide is a three-plus touchdown favorite over the Auburn Tigers. According to Tide 100.9, it is the largest spread for the game since 2012.

Cincinnati: Don’t Play BYU

Photo by Joe Robbins/ Beating a G5 Mediocrity Does Us No Good The best way to prove that you are a somebody is to act like a somebody. Cincinnati playing BYU in some kind of “best of the rest” bowl will do nothing to improve the Bearcats’ chances of earning a playoff spot. It is a distraction. A glorified consolation game. Cincinnati should not play BYU for the same reason that a frontrunner in an election does not debate marginal candidates. It does you no good, even if you win. It only serves to legitimize your opponent. We play out the string. We win the AAC....

Line set for Arizona’s trip to Rose Bowl to face UCLA

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports In order for the Arizona Wildcats to end their program-record losing streak, they’re going to need to do a pair of things they haven’t accomplished in a while: win at the Rose Bowl and as a two-score underdog. VegasInsider.com has installed Arizona as a 9-point underdog for Saturday’s game against the UCLA Bruins in Pasadena, Calif. That marks the sixth consecutive game the Wildcats have been dogs during what is now a 9-game losing streak, all by nine or more points. Arizona has not win at the Rose Bowl since 2010, and it has not...

Perhaps the biggest proof Kentucky football needs to change strategy

Photo by Frederick Breedon/ It ain’t the 1900’s anymore. Mark Stoops has rebuilt the Kentucky football program and, in some ways, taken the Wildcats to places some never imagined. With four consecutive winning seasons and four straight bowl appearances, including back to back victories, the Wildcats have established themselves as a formidable SEC opponent. However, some believe the ceiling is lowered for this program by the style of football they play. Kentucky has found success behind a solid defense and a strong running game. That has been the foundation of SEC...

Hi, things right now are pretty depressing and concerning around campus, but I want to take the time to address something a little more lighthearted that’s been bugging me for years now. The worst part about Arkansas week isn’t the fact that the Razorbacks treat this as their Super Bowl and always play like it. It used to be the 1:00 Black Friday timeslot, but since that’s been alleviated the mantle has shifted to something else: LSU fans claiming they don’t like the Golden Boot.

How to fix SU football in the long-term, part 1: What won’t work

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports We’re doing “series” again! That must mean something’s going poorly. Once upon a time, when the Syracuse Orange football team was just constantly bad or barely bowl eligible, we’d run various “series” on this website about how to fix or save things. Then we went 10-3 back in 2018, and everyone (self included) though things were saved. It wound up they weren’t, as we learned very quickly. With SU already 1-7 and riding a team of freshmen toward what looks like a (gulp) 1-10 finish, it seemed high time to bring back the series...

Mark Stoops mentioned as potential candidate for another Power 5 job

The Kentucky Wildcats are not having the season that we all expected in 2020 as they get set to face the No. 1 team in the country on Saturday. However, Mark Stoops has done a phenomenal job of building this program and taking it to a level that I am not sure many believed was possible. Since becoming the head coach at Kentucky, Stoops has led the Cats to a 47-48 record after a 3-4 start to the 2020 season. However, he has led Kentucky to a Citrus Bowl win over Penn State, ended the...

While the SEC is loaded with talented teams, there isn’t a better team to match up with coming off a bye than the Vanderbilt Commodores. It hasn’t really been the season we thought from these Cats, but they have a solid opportunity to finish strong and inch their way into a bowl game, especially with how weird this season has been. It looks like Quinton Bohanna will be back for the first time since the Tennessee game, which is huge for this Cats defense. Vandy is having a bad year, no other way to put it....
