Ok, so, imagine this... only for 60 minutes instead of 55.
I'm sitting here watching a rerun of the Iron Bowl on TV. And all I can think is, "We're not gonna do that this year," "Cam's gonna complete that pass this year," "Somebody's going to have to guard the QB on that option read this year," "That double coverage on Darvin is gonna leave Carr or Reed or Zachary or Burns or Lutz or Kitchens or Benton wide open this year," "Our depth means this defense isn't going to be sucking wind in the 4th quarter this year," "That confused looking veteran Bama D is going to be full of first year starters this year".
Optimism level.... up, and steadily climbing. September 4 can't get here soon enough.
