Killed us.

Bama just flat-out kicked our butts!

I should have known when the Gators came out with their new-look Nike "high performance" uniforms that something was up.

Not a good week to go all-Nike.

It just didn't feel right.

Alabama completely dominated the game. Right from the start. All phases.

McElroy played like Joe Montana. Ingram (and the entire Bama running game) ran wild; he always seemed to be falling forward. The whole Gator team looked off-balance all game. No running game, dropped passes, defense chasing all game.

Most obvious to me, the Tide had a better gameplan which they implemented to perfection.

They just "looked" like the better team.

I've haven't seen the Gators so dominated in a long time.

They just killed us.
