Daily Bull 9.25.18: Kellen Mond is fond of last year’s Arkansas game

New, 24 comments

Oh yeah, he kind of had a great game last year

NCAA Football: Arkansas at Texas A&M Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

TOP OF THE MORNING. Let’s run through the drills.

PAWLLL HOW COME THERE AINT NO PLAYERS O THE WEEK JUST FOR BAMA IMMA HANGUP n LISSEN. Well, actually there are, dear listener. AL dot com released the Alabama coaches’ players of the game, and wow hell fire there were eight of them. Among them were

Senior defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs

Buggs posted seven tackles, four stops for a loss, 3.5 sacks and two additional quarterback pressures.

what the shit, that’s more than our whole team has the entire season or something

and

Sophomore wide receiver Henry Ruggs

Ruggs contributed on the kick coverage teams.

uh, you sure that’s it? Pretty ho-hum day when your 57-yard catch and run, weaving through myriad hapless Aggie defenders gently throwing themselves at him half-heartedly in the remotest semblance of tackle attempts doesn’t even merit mentioning in the local rag’s Bama-only player of the game piece.

By the way, we need a Buggs n’ Ruggs t-shirt. Make it happen, Tide fans. Get a little creative once in a while.

WHY ISN’T THE COACH PANICKING, WE NEED SOME PANIC TO SELL SOME PANIC HEADLINES ON PANIC

The Dallas Morning News headline writers are disappointed that Jimbo Fisher is not panicking about his offensive line giving up lots of sacks to Alabama.
{takes deep breath full of indignation}
This is the only team in the country that has gone up against the two most dominant defensive lines in college football. And the 22 sacks by Alabama aside, things have not the been a total disaster per se, or at least not as bad as they could have been. At worst it’s a gray area. Maybe dark gray, but still. Let’s get through a few SEC games before we start bemoaning an entire position group, K?

ARKANSAS ON MY MOND

Don’t forget—last year Kellen Mond had a hell of a game against Arkansas in Jerryworld. That was the first time we really saw him play with confidence and showcase his abilities. (PS, HE WAS NOT OUT OF BOUNDS). He recalled the game fondly this week.

Have a wonderful Tuesday, gang.
