Deja Vu: An Iron Bowl for the Ages

Saturday night, felt like deja vu. I felt like I had seen it before. In fact, I had seen it before, six years to the date earlier when Auburn returned a last second field goal 109 yards to pay dirt.

Although this one was under different circumstances, it will still stand the test of time.

When Zakoby McClain took the football off of an Alabama receivers hands, and returned it 100 yards to the end zone, everything slowed down and I was taken back to 2013.

All I could think about was: “Wow, I wonder what Rod Bramblett is saying now. What would he say if he was still behind the microphone?”

It was absolutely insane. When I got home, I was discussing the game with my brother’s girlfriend, and we were talking about the pick-six. She said “I wonder how he caught that.” I replied, “He didn’t, Rod had a hand in this one.” Her voice got shaky and she replied “He was watching over us.”

Say what you want about the Iron Bowl but when it comes to historic moments, there is nothing like the Iron Bowl.

Coaches Say Things After A Big Win, It’s Part of Sports

I’m sure we’ve all heard what Coach Orgeron said in the locker room of Bryant-Denny Stadium after upsetting the Tide 46-41, so I won’t repeat it.

But here’s the way I see it, folks. It’s part of sports, I’m sure we’ve all heard coaches say things like this in a locker room after a big win.

Emotions were running high and Coach O just said what was on his mind. Do I think it should’ve been videoed?

No, coaches talking in the locker room, is like us talking to family or close friends. It should not have been videoed, but it was.

I’ve heard coaches say things like this many times in the locker room, the difference here is nobody videoed it.

I want you to watch Saban’s mouth after Alabama doesn’t successfully execute a play and the media pans over to him. Tell me the difference.

There isn’t one, coaches want to win just as bad, if not worse than their players. Things happen.

Get over it and move on, instead of crying and carrying on saying “He shouldn’t have said that.”

Nick does the same thing, under different circumstances on the sideline. It’s called adrenaline people.

We’ve all said things we didn’t mean when our adrenaline was pumping.

You don’t see the world breaking into outrage when Saban has his sideline/media rants do you? No, so if you can’t handle the energy of the sport, it’s simple, don’t watch it.
