15 Alabama-LSU Headlines (Plus A Bonus) – 11/3/11

Line watch:  No movement today, the line is at Alabama -4.5 for the second consecutive day.  It opened at Bama -4 and then moved to -5 before settling in at the current position.

Ticket watch:  According to StubHub.com, the highest price for tickets is $1,177 a piece for four in the lower level of Bryant-Denny Stadium.  Earlier this week two tickets were going for more than $10,000 a pop.

And now the headlines…


1.  Trent Richardson will take to the Heisman stage on Saturday.

2.  CBS’ Gary Danielson says “this game means everything.”

3.  SEC coaches weigh in on the game and its significance.

4.  Florida’s Trey Burton said Alabama’s defense is better than LSU’s… “hands down, a lot better.”

5.  Bama backup tailback Eddie Lacy had a noticeable limp at practice yesterday.

6.  ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit says he and Brent Musburger will have the LSU-Bama game on while they’re calling Oklahoma State-Kansas State. 

7.  The Tigers’ offseason work led to a leaner, tougher defense in 2011.

8.  John Chavis will probably use more of his base defense against the Tide.

9.  Nick Saban and Les Miles have both been highly successful, but they have two different approaches to life and football.

10.  What if Miles were Alabama’s head coach?

11.  LSU’s been rolling since last year’s win over the Crimson Tide.

12.  Is Bama’s D an all-time great… or just very good and fortunate?

13.  Saban isn’t ready to crown his defense just yet.

14.  If the Tide wins Saturday, give some credit to their mental conditioning coach.

15.  Last year’s fourth-down gamble against Bama changed everything for Miles.

A little while earlier, the team buses had pulled away from Bryant-Denny Stadium following a 31-6 loss to No. 1-ranked Alabama in a rematch of the 2009 SEC Championship Game. The loss was the Gators' first since Meyer's health scare 10 months earlier.

‘Bama Public Address Paging Mr. Newton . . .

Here’s to you, Mr. Bryant-Denny Stadium musical director. You spent all week figuring out exactly how to twist the knife into Cam Newton’s soul {that choice was totally coincidental!!!!}. You’ll be accused of being tasteless, or perhaps being a part of the great anti-Auburn conspurcy {It all starts with Barack Obammer!!!}. But you don’t care. You just wish he was going to be back next year so that you could serenade him with Kenny Chesny’s groundbreaking cover of P. Diddy’s All About the Benjamins. {Words to live by!!!!}.

So here’s to you, Mr. Unidentified Bryant-Denny Stadium musical director.
