This past Saturday, UT and the “Lane Train” took on their first BCS team of the year. UCLA. The Bruins. Not exactly a BCS powerhouse – but they did beat us last year so there was an element of revenge.
However, that would not prove to be enough. Unfortunately, our quarterback fumbled a snap and then threw three interceptions in a row. And against any BCS team, if you turn the ball of FOUR times, you’ve got a pretty good chance at chalking one up in the “L” column.
So my take on it is – week one was the week for all of the Coach Lane Kiffen fans (or CLK or the “Lane Train”). An excellent outing. A “see – I told you so” performance. Week two is for all of the Phillip Fulmer fans. Proof that not all of the pieces are in place. A “see – I told you the grass isn’t always greener” performance.
The true test is coming up. Since the “downfall” of Alabama football – the biggest rivalry in the SEC East has been UT and Florida. And this year they are playing in the swamp against a VERY good Florida team. We’ll see how things look when the Lane Train pulls out of Gainsville…
And which side of the fence am I sitting on? Am I a “sorry to see Fulmer go” person? Have I been drinking the “Kiffen Kool-Aid”? Actually – I’m neither. I enjoy seeing the football team win and I’m disappointed when they lose.
But I’m REALLY excited when I look and see the the MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM has only SEVEN WEEKS until they start exhibition play! WOOOOT WOOOOT!!!!!
And speaking of countdowns – 82 bottles of beer on the wall. 82 bottles of beer. Take one down. Pass it around……
