Ole Miss Threatens

Alabama defeated Ole Miss Saturday afternoon October 14 in overtime by the score of 26-23. It was a very exciting game for the boys and I. We left the house at 8 and found our parking spot on 6th Ave, just off Hackberry Lane just a little after 10 a.m. The traffic coming down was heavy because the game started at 2:30. The line in the McDonald's drive through took a long time, too. Some students from Blount County were charging $8 for crs to park in their yard. We parked in the street in front of their yard. They were gracious enough to allow the boys and I to play catch in their back yard. I also read the gameday edition of the Tuscaloosa News a little while in the car while the boys played. We walked by the Bryant Museum and got some programs.

We really enjoyed the game. Bama looked good at times, especially on offense. The defense stunk in the first half, but they turned it around in the second half and in overtime. The defense only gave up about 80 yards in the second half, and over 50 of that came on one big pass play. John Parker Wilson was sharp again, passing for over 200 yards, as he now has in all seven starts of his career this year. He did miss two wide open receivers. He also had two easy passes dropped which may have resulted in touchdowns. Sometimes you get the feeling that this Tide team is on the verge of greatness, but there are always a few big mistakes each game that keep them from being exactly where they want to be. If they put it all together, they could still give Tennessee, LSU, and/or Auburn a run for their money.

Obviously the most exciting part of this game was John Parker Wilson's game winning touchdown pass to LeRon McClain in overtime. I was holding Matt and we were all jumping up and down cheering. The smiles on the boys' faces were priceless.
