Mark Ingram Gives Bama Its First Heisman

Filed under: Roll Tide, Sports — Tags: , — jodygambrell @ 10:27 pm

MARK INGRAM WON THE 75TH HEISMAN TROPHY!  Those words still don’t seem real.  Jaime and I cried tears of joy as Ingram accepted Alabama’s first Heisman Trophy (Insert Tim Tebow joke here).  I’ve never been prouder to be an Alabama fan!  The only thing that could make this better would be a win over Texas on January 7th in the BCS National Championship Game.  Roll Tide Roll!

26-21!

Whew!  My heart has just now started beating at a normal pace.  As much as I hate dislike Auburn, I have to give them some credit.  The Tigers played an outstanding game and shutdown Hesiman candidate, Mark Ingram.  I guess there is something to that SI Jinx (see post below).  I predicted that the Tigers would start with a lot of intensity and emotion and boy was I right!  Even after the Tide went down 14-0, I wasn’t too worried.  However, after being down most of the game, I felt as if I could puke up my Thanksgiving meal(s).  You can tell yourself that the Iron Bowl is only a game, but if you live in the state of Alabama, it is so much more.

End the end, the Tide (and a steady dose of Julio Jones) orchestrated a beautiful drive and scored on a TD pass from McElroy to Upchurch to seal the deal.  Bama is 12-0 and will play for the SEC Title next week in Atlanta.

Roll Tide Roll!

Jinx or Good Heisman Pub?

Sports Illustrated knows that when Bama is on the cover, magazines sell.  Jinx or no jinx, it’s still cool in my book!  RTR!

SEC Championship Tickets

The 2009 SEC Championship Game has the potential to be the biggest college football game of this decade.  Alabama and Florida are arguably the two best teams in the nation.  Both teams will likely be undefeated on December 5th.  The National Championship and the Heisman Trophy will most likely be on the line.  I am so excited to have tickets!  I just hope the outcome is better than last year’s.  Roll Tide!

I’m excited about Anthony Grant, but I’m not sold on the Tide’s new jerseys just yet (as seen above).  Don’t get me wrong, they are okay but the Tide’s retro look from the past few years is hard to top (see below).

Winning games is all that matters and I think Grant will do just that.
