    1995 Nebraska and 2008 Florida would both smoke this year's Alabama team.
    So would the 2001 Miami team that had 17 NFL 1st rounders and 38 overall NFL draft picks.

    1994 Penn State team would drop 50 on Alabama.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    Was tracking the game on my phone.
    I had told some people that ElCid would put up a better fight than most people think.
    And was loving that they actually were.

    But you had to figure the drop off in talent, especially as the backups had to be rotated in plus fatigue and probably SEC biased officiating... Would catch up at some point.

    But it was fun seeing that in the first half.
    I usually pull for our former conference mates in these games.

    So in the end, Bama beat them like they do SEC teams. Cool. Wish it had been closer, but yeah.. Still loved the fight in the Citadel.

    My favorite part of this is how people act like the option is what kept Tua from scoring more than 10 points in the first half.

    Actually, the argument would go like this: The option is what greatly contributed to Citadel’s ability to limit Bama to 4 possessions in the first half, lessening the number of stops their obscenely overmatched defense were required to make, and thereby keeping Tua from scoring more than 10 points in the first half with only 2 stops. Contrast that with Ark State, where Bama had 8 possessions in the first half and 40 points.

    Saban said as much at halftime.

    ElCid lost that game in the first 5 minutes of the 3rd quarter, when they didn't cash in that fumble on the kickoff and then let Bama score and then gave up the scoop and score 2 plays later.

    What ElCid is in no way as impressive as what GS did against Bama in 2011, though. That defense GS played that year was way more stacked than the 2018 version.

    Our overall offensive production was much better too. Even when they were tied at half, Cit was only at 4.9 YPP. To contrast, we were at 9.3 YPP going into the half in 2011.

    We smoked their defense in the first half. If they hadn't ran back that blocked FG, that would have been a much more interesting game at halftime.

    That was such a fun game to be at.
