roll Tide, roll

I just thought I'd mention Alabama is No. 1 in the AP poll, the ESPN/USA Today poll, the Harris poll, and most importantly, the BCS standings.

I don't know how long we'll be up there, but for right now, the view looks good from atop the college football world. It's a little crazy in Tuscaloosa right now. A lot of folks are nervous about the No. 1 ranking -- and they should be. Alabama has a recent history of not living up to its hype. We'll find out a lot about the Tide when they travel to Baton Rouge Saturday to face LSU.

Alabama could dominate. Or they could fall flat on their face against a very good LSU team. It really depends on whether the cycle of losing has really been broken by Nick Saban and his staff. I'm interested to see how it turns out, for sure.
