Two plays in, Alabama’s first-stringers are still in the game. Saban just running up the score.

I know, and Saban was determined to run up the score after running out of the tunnel with the first team. Classless.
At least Star Jackson doesn’t have to choose a side to pull for today!

By the way, whatever happened to Star? He left Alabama for Georgia State then up and left Georgia State.
FIRST DOWN Y’ALL AIN’T READY BAMOH GOD THAT LARGE MAN IS IN THE BACKFIELD AND HE JUST ATE OUR RUNNING BACK.
— Robby Kalland (@RKalland) October 5, 2013
That running back was Travis Evans, who ended the day with 14 rushes for 19 yards. 12 of those came on one run, if you’re wondering. The Alabama D-line had the backfield swallowed most of the game.
Austin Shepherd looks like he could lead a double life of playing in a country music cover band in Tuscaloosa.

He’s also a beast at blocking for the Bama O-Line. The men upfront for Alabama gave up 0 sacks in the game.
Georgia State penalized for 12 men on field, which actually seems more fair. Alabama follows with TD, 14-0 at 3:08 1Q

In addition to a running clock, coaches should be allowed to play another man on the field for the 4th quarter when down by a certain score.

Don’t forget everyone Georgia State deferred to the second half to have a strategic advantage after the break.

Some strategy that turned out to be.
ESPN Goal Line is showing Bama-Georgia State live look-ins. That is just about the worst of the worst.

Considering how many times Alabama was threatening in the red zone, I wouldn’t be surprised if they just kept it there for the entire game.
These next 33 minutes are going to really separate the degenerate gamblers from the innocent fans.

Speaking of gamblers, what happened during the Ohio State-Northwestern game? Talk about a backdoor cover.
Nick Saban’s going to go into the locker room up by 38 and still unhappy because that’s how sociopathy works.
— sir broosk (@celebrityhottub) October 5, 2013
Nick Saban would probably be the best fan in the world because he’d stay for all four quarters even if it’s 77-0.
Alabama comes up 567 tickets sold short of a sellout. Second non-sellout of the Nick Saban era.

Very rare to see a partially empty stadium. The student section was almost half-empty.
