Hi Bama Fans,

It was great to see and meet some newcomers last Saturday.  Bama handled business against Western Kentucky and now the fun begins.  Playing at Ole Miss will be challenging, but let’s hope Bama can redeem the last two losses to Ole Miss and get their first SEC victory.  Coach Saban has never lost 3 consecutive games to the same opponent while coaching at UA.
