I was wrong...

In my last post, I said that John Parker Wilson could not win the game against Georgia, but he could certainly lose it. In order to win this game, I felt like JP had to have an exceptional day. After watching him melt under pressure last year, I was concerned about this game. This was the biggest of the season.

I was wrong about my comment. John Parker Wilson helped win this football game with his calm approach to managing the game. He was the leader he is expected to be as quarterback. He made good decisions on when to throw or when to scramble. I do not recall a "forced" pass or a delay of game. (The delay of game that they were charged with was to the kicking team when the kicker forgot to kick.)

After the big win against Clemson, Alabama struggled against Tulane. This is the biggest win of the season thus far and a tough Kentucky team is coming to town. Was this a fluke against Georgia? Do they deserve the #2 ranking? This next game will help answer these questions. The true test is not always the game with all the hype and publicity, but the game that follows the one with the hype and publicity.

'bama is really doing great. They may have a close call yesterday, but a win is a win is a win is a win.
