Pass the defibrillator.
Or, more accurately, ALABAMA 41, Arkansas 38.
Familiar hard-fought nail-biter. With a twist. Bama jumps out to a big lead, Razorbacks make comeback. Tide extends lead, Razorbacks make comeback. I was starting to get nervous, as I had seen this all-too common scenario before.
But the $4 million a year paid off as ALABAMA CAME FROM BEHIND IN THE FOURTH QUARTER TO WIN, OVER A TOP-20 TEAM to boot!
I was wrong in some of my picks, but it doesn't matter. ALABAMA won, AT home, AT night, on National television, to a divisional SEC opponent.
And Florida pounded tennessee.
And auburn lost. To Mississippi State. And, as evidenced below, the plainsmen-war eagle-tigers or whatever have been up-ended. Again.
....And when they turn up-right, this is what they look like:
I shall sleep well tonight.
