TUSCALOOSA – Did you come out to Alabama’s A-Day game expecting the same dull defensive oriented performance?

It was anything but dull as bombs filled the air, receivers made plays and the final outcome wasn’t decided until JK Scott hit a 30-yard field goal on the final play of the scrimmage for a 27-24 win by the Crimson team.

But what did the fans in attendance and the millions more watching on ESPN really see? Did they learn anything from watching a Saban-coached offense go up against a Saban-coached defense?

The MAX Capital City Classic is anything but predictable. Predictions of a defensive struggle turn into an offensive shootout and evenly matched squads often rout the other when Alabama and Auburn get together at Riverwalk Stadium.

Tuesday night’s matchup actually followed the script, however. Two very average teams were on display Tuesday and Alabama, which has struggled to do the little things right in a self-destructing season, continued that trend on Tuesday night. Auburn, which has found a way to unimpressively find ways to win, continued that trend as well, taking a 4-3 victory in front of a crowd of 7,605, the largest to ever witness a game at Riverwalk Stadium and the second largest to ever watch a regular season battle between the Tigers and the Tide.

Taylor Poe grew up an Alabama fan and dreamed of playing baseball for the Crimson Tide.

Some of his earliest memories of his favorite college team came from watching the MAX Capital City Classic. They’re not good memories, however. Alabama has won each of the last five season series with the Tigers but only has one Classic victory over that same span.

The powerful presentation of a video made the announcement for Robert E. Lee High star Henry Ruggs, III on Wednesday, but there were two separate endings filmed because he couldn’t choose between Alabama and Florida State.

The video conveyed the loss Ruggs felt last March as a junior when senior Rod Scott, a teammate on the Generals’ basketball team, was killed in an automobile accident on the way to the state basketball tournament in Birmingham. It depicts Ruggs working out in the weight room and on the football field, along with clips of him visiting his friends’ graveside.

TUSCALOOSA – His Twitter handle is @Greg_Byrne. He lists his Twitter goals as “engage, communicate and have some fun.”

It’s safe to say that none of the last seven athletic directors at the University of Alabama had Twitter (or would have had it had it existed in their time) or would have been interested in engaging or communicating with the Alabama fan base in an effort to “have some fun.”

Welcome to the new world of progressive thinking.
