08:21 AM ET 10.01 | Even as it comes so early in the season, Alabama's bye week is no off week. Alabama's next five games come against SEC opponents with three taking place away from Bryant-Denny Stadium. The degree of difficulty seemingly increases with every next opponent until its Nov. 3 rematch with LSU in Baton Rouge. The Crimson Tide will make back-to-back road trips to Missouri (Oct. 13) and Tennessee (Oct. 20) before its first home game in nearly a month on Oct. 27 against No. 20 Mississippi State. ... "It's not a relaxing week for us," wide receiver Christion Jones said. "We've got a lot of things to work on. The bye week is just a week for us to get better, still focus on our details, still focus on our fundamentals. It's a 'get better' week."

Bammer...Blah, Blah, Blah.

I think the staff at al.com are somehow related to the FN interns. We have way too many lame articles about Bammer.

::hijacking the thread::

So, Gundy thinks Texas fumbled the ball on that last TD? Looking at the replays, Gundy could be right.

True statement there, JK. No reasonable fan can deny it. But, this is T&R and I'm sure some lunatic will try.

I truly saw the top 6 look less than impressive. I think Alabama looked sluggish. I think they played better than the other top teams but not by much.

Alabama is going to walk through this season. I feel for Missouri with Bama having an off-week to prepare.
