First 2017 BAMA Gameday Comic

Well, this is my first chance to post my SEC picks and BAMA Gameday Comics this season. Here goes:

There should be a lot of close ones today, and many will be toss-ups. My guesses...?

Florida 34
Vandy  35  Both teams scoring, Commodores get the upset.

Georgia     38
Tennessee 17

LSU  21
Troy  20  Maybe another upset...?

MSU   28  Which bulldogs will show up...?
auburn 27  Which tigers will show up...?

Outside the conference, CLEMSON handles Virginia Tech 34-21
Ohio State beats Rutgers 42-17

Back to Reality:
BAMA will pound the identity-challenged Ole Miss squad
THE University of ALABAMA will host the Ole Miss Rebels/BlackBears/soon-to-be-Landsharks in a nationally-televised night game on ESPN. The TIDE's injured defenders have mostly healed and are back with a vengeance. ole miss will score, but BAMA will eventually over-power them.
Jalen ain't playin' -- playin' around, that is..
BAMA's stable of backs will just be poundin'...

My Pick:

Ole Miss       21

BAMA-Clemson 2

THE University of ALABAMA faces off with the Clemson Tigers for the second straight year for the National Championship! The Tigers, led by former TIDE player and assistant coach Dabo Swinney, put up a good fight and came close last year. They are confident that they can compete with-- and have a GOOD chance to beat-- The mighty TIDE.
 This looks to be a real 'slobber-knocker', but nobody sneaks up on a SABAN-coached team twice. He will have BAMA ready for Clemson.

Look for a good, close first half, but an angry TIDE defense will shut DeShaun Watson and company down.

Clemson       21

FINALLY! It's here!
BAMA will face off with auburn in the IRON BOWL today at 2:30.
Look for it to be a tight game early on, but THE TIDE will overpower the tigers/plainsmen/war-eagles or whatever and pull away late.


auburn          21

Here's this season's FIRST "Brentoons BAMA Gameday Comic"!
The CRIMSON TIDE is back on the field after last year's Championship, and opens the schedule with another 'neutral field' scrimmage-- this time against the University of Southern California Trojans.

No amount of sleight-of-hand, trickery, or protection will help the Trojans. Even with a brand-new, unproven backfield, BAMA's offense should power up and ROLL over Southern Cal.

Brentoons BAMA Gameday Prediction:

USC             14

Monday, January 11, 2016


Well, another college football season is coming to an end, and once again THE University of ALABAMA is in contention for a title. This season, we'll be facing a solid, up-and-coming Clemson Tigers team coached by former BAMA player Dabo Swinney-- a member of the legendary 1992 TIDE Championship team. 
 Dabo is a fine fellow, a BAMA grad, and a great coach. Unfortunately, all of this won't be enough for his boys to win tonight's game. This will be a good contest, and Clemson is a great football team, but after the years of experience and last year's disappointing ending, The TIDE won't let THIS one get away.
The Tigers have some great athletes, but so does BAMA.

My game prediction...?

LATE GameDay Predictions


And it only took me A MONTH to start my pre-game predictions and comics!!

THE TIDE started out the season strong, but fumbled and slogged their way to a home loss against an opportunistic Ole Miss. The BlackBear Rebels took advantage of BAMA miscues and an incredibly unbelievable fortuitous bounce to top The TIDE in Tuscaloosa.
 After a disorganized victory over Louisiana-Monroe (featuring NUMEROUS dropped balls by our receivers!), BAMA will try to gain a badly-needed triumph in Stanford Stadium at Georgia. The Bulldogs are just a-rollin' along, with Grayson Lambert setting passing records and the seemingly-unstoppable Nick Chubb churning out yards.
 On what looks to be a sloppy, rain-drenched afternoon, look for BAMA to take one from the Bulldogs in classic, old-school fashion-- with a BIG twist. Kenyan Drake is a speedy, versatile back, just waiting to have a big showing after last year's injury. Derrick Henry is a huge, straight-up freight train who is hard to stop once he builds up a head of steam. The plot thickens with the addition of the highly-touted Bo Scarborough, who will see the first action of his career following a four-game suspension. Scarborough is as big as Henry, only thicker. And he can move.
 The TIDE will methodically play keep-away and eat clock as they slog up and down the field, leaving piles of sick puppies in the wake. (COMIC coming later...!)


Elsewhere in the SEC:
Ole Miss and Florida look to be a good matchup.
OLE MISS 35, Florida 21
Aggies coming up, Bulldogs caught off-guard.
TEXAS A&M 31, Mississippi State 30
Spurrier's head will explode as Tigers prevail.
MISSOURI 28, South Carolina 21
WHO wants to win this game...?
TENNESSEE 21, Arkansas 20
LSU 49, Eastern Michigan 3

Around the Country:
OSU 45, Indiana 17
Baylor 49, Texas Tech 42
DUKE 31, Boston College 28
CLEMSON 31, Notre Dame 21
