Hurts, No. 1 Alabama run roughshod over Ole Miss

He punched in his touchdown from 6 yards out to give Alabama a 7-0 lead.

Capping off a dominant performance by the top-ranked Crimson Tide, tight end Ronnie Clark found the endzone with eight minutes remaining. It's something we've been emphasizing to this team. The upset of Alabama signified the arrival of Ole Miss as a premier SEC team and marked the Rebels' first 5-0 start since 1962.

I take back whatever criticisms and questions I may have had up to this point. "Here's a guy that has done everything that anyone could ever ask as a teammate and contributed to the team in whatever way he could, regardless of how (few) accolades that may have brought him. I have to go play- that's just how I was raised".

Georgia coach Kirby Smart is the former defensive coordinator for Nick Saban at Alabama.

"They beat us soundly in all 3 phases: Offense, defense, kicking game", Luke said.

While most casual fans might consider then-No.

The Crimson Tide scored three times in almost 5 minutes of game action as Hurts found junior tight end Hale Hentges in the back of the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown two plays after a 60-yard catch-and-run between Hurts and senior receiver Cam Sims.

Asked Monday by reporters how he expects Alabama to handle the unexpected slaughters of the past two Saturdays, Hurts said, "We just have the mindset to be 1-0 every week".

Saban added that different teams react in different ways to early adversity, and he has been impressed with A&M's victories over Nicholls State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Arkansas and SC after the UCLA debacle.

Saban says sometimes teams respond better to bad things rather than good things, and he thinks that's what Texas A&M has done and is now playing well.

"He was coming up to me wanting to stay in the game, wanting to compete", Luke said.

"They bracketed [Brown] a little bit tonight, played some double coverage on him some", Luke said. "This is a really good team".

Ole Miss (2-2, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) is preparing for a hard road game against No. 12 Auburn (4-1, 2-0) on Saturday while also digesting an embarrassing 66-3 loss to No. 1 Alabama last weekend. While some may differ on effort, McGriff has made a decision to peel back the directions and attack the football, noting, "there is not going to be much game-planning, as we are going to create as many one-on-one situations as possible and play". Before leaving the game Saturday, he recorded a sack and three tackles against Ole Miss.

If the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs play in the SEC championship game it will be a great coaching matchup.
