and how you felt after these games. 1. 2000 UAB - lost 13-10 2. 2001 Ole Miss - lost 35-24 3. 2002 Virginia Tech - lost 26-8 4. 2003 Florida - lost 19-7 Now think about what happened the week after these performances 1. 2000 Tennessee - win 38-31 over top 10 team 2. 2001 Alabama - win 35-21 set all time SEC pass and recieving yard records, while also winning out the rest of the season. 3. 2002 String together six straight with Mauck & co destroying Florida 36-7 4. 2003 South Carolina win 33-7 and run the table win the NC. Now think about how bad our offensive line played in season openers in 2002 and 2003. They did not play well, but it did not take long to put it together. 2004 - We started the season with one of our worst performances in the Saban era, but we DID NOT lose the game. This engine will be running at top speed soon enough. Russell will be the QB and he will be fine.
