That is why individuals can’t stop Texas. They’ve all of the expertise to hold with and beat the very best groups within the nation even with a backup QB, and like Mikey with a quantity in Swingers, fuck it up. The remainder of the SEC watching needs that model of Alabama reveals as much as convention play, however nonetheless somebody has to cease their working recreation and harass Bryce Younger all recreation. Effectively, 59-ish minutes of the sport.
With the offensive line struggling to guard him or persistently open holes, and receivers dropping passes for a lot of the recreation, Younger drove the Crimson Tide down the sector with relative ease, culminating in him Houdini-ing his method out of a sack and into discipline objective vary.
Alabama would go on to make the sector objective and win the sport, 20-19.
Texas No. 2 quarterback Hudson Card made simply sufficient throws to earn a lead late, and it’s cheap to say that had Quinn Ewers not gotten harm, Texas would’ve gained this recreation. On the half, Steve Sarkisian mentioned he was going to maintain working his stuff, and if enjoying for discipline objectives as an alternative of touchdowns is his stuff, then perhaps they nonetheless lose if Ewers doesn’t get roughed up.
G/O Media might get a fee
Texas bought contained in the Bama 20-yard line 5 instances, and walked away with one landing and three discipline objectives on 4 makes an attempt. One drive early within the fourth quarter was notably egregious, working for all intents and functions a fullback dive on second and 5 earlier than kicking a discipline objective to go up 16-10. Younger answered to make it 17-16 with the Tide’s first actual sustained drive of the sport. It was their first of three, the second of which ended on fourth and one and gave Texas the possibility to kick a go-ahead discipline objective with a minute and alter left, and the ultimate was for the game-winning discipline objective.
Your complete afternoon in Austin was drunk and sweaty, and it’s exhausting to be ok with Nick Saban’s unit after they escaped Austin regardless of 100 yards in penalties. I’m fairly certain the refs both had warmth stroke, or a few Shiners themselves. It was poorly officiated all through with prolonged critiques, and Longhorns’ followers have a professional gripe with an incomplete go name that ought to’ve been not less than intentional grounding for a security if not only a security.
As a substitute, that was known as roughing the passer with concentrating on, however the ref misspoke and needed to retract it earlier than delivering the ultimate verdict that you simply couldn’t hear as a result of the gang was booing so loudly. (Within the occasion of concentrating on with roughing the passer, the roughing would stand no matter if it was concentrating on. Had the Tide been given 15 yards and a primary down for that, the gang would have rioted.)
Recommendation to anybody doing something in Austin tonight apart from hiding underneath the covers and ready for Sunday, don’t. Go house. Ruminating on that loss will solely make you mad, and Candy Residence Alabama goes to be caught in your head not less than by brunch in the event you go wherever close to celebrating Tide followers.
