The Alabama Crimson Tide traveled to their first true road game in just under a month this past weekend. Their destination was the Commonwealth State, where they took on the struggling 1-5 Wildcats of Kentucky. The game ended in a 48-7 blowout as Alabama moved to 6-0 on the season. Some players decided to sound off on Twitter how they thought the game went. We picked out a few for your Twitter Tuesday:
To God be the glory..!

Altee saw some time on the playing field Saturday. In fact, he was the top running back for the day that didn’t fumble the ball.
Great Win Tonight For The Team! #On2TheNext

O.J, Howard also saw some playing time. A good bit of time for the backups in this game, although you didn’t see the backup QB Black Sims until about 9 minutes left in the game.
..nice road win but this had to be my most horrible game ever

As in sync as Kenny Bell and AJ McCarron are, it was surprising that Bell didn’t record anything on the say Saturday. Many balls were thrown to them but they were often dropped. A lot of dropped passes occurred by receivers other than Bell as well.

The good thing about road games is that allows parents of the players to come see their sons play when they wouldn’t have an opportunity to see them otherwise.
Man I hate to see anyone harm a child that’s so innocent I couldn’t imagine how AP feel praying for him

Prayers up for AP and his family.. We live in a crazy crazy world! Tell your loved ones you love them because tomorrow isn’t promised

Sort of off topic, but many Alabama football players expressed their condolences and concerns regarding Minnesota Vikings runningback Adrian Peterson and the tragic, heartbreaking story about his son being beat to death. Certainly, the game of football is a fraternity for all those that play it, whether you are at the pro level or in the college game. Prayers and thoughts are sent to AP and his family. I’m sure they are still grieving.
I need to go shopping ASAP!! I have no winter clothes:(

This was tweeted shortly after arriving in Kentucky. I went to Kentucky once and this is the exact same thought I had.
Next stop Kentucky. On a business trip with my enforcers. #BEATKENTUCKY

Seriously, I can’t get enough of Cody Mandell’s “I AM THE REAPER” tweets.
