Sunday Media Round-Up

Here's what some media members and bloggers are saying about yesterday's 35-7 bloodletting at the hands of Alabama:

Roll Bama Roll:

For the second year in a row, 'Bama moves to 4-0 with a blowout win over Arkansas, and though the margin of victory wasn't as high as it was a year ago Fayetteville, if you look at all of the other metrics of the game, this year's game was actually far more lopsided than the contest a year ago. 

Team Speed Kills:

Alabama is a very complete team.

I guess we could say we knew that, but it all was on display as Alabama really controlled its game with Arkansas from beginning to end. For all the love showered on Ryan Mallett, who appears to be Gary Danielson's new secondary crush (behind Tebow, his primary) now that Matthew Stafford is in the NFL, Greg McElroy was by far the best quarterback in the game.

Chris Bahn, ArkansasSports360:

But it was hard not to think the Razorbacks more or less beat the hell out of themselves. They were the victims of self-inflicted wounds again and again Saturday in a 35-7 loss to the third-ranked Crimson Tide.

Don't mistake that as a slight on a good Alabama (4-0, 1-0) team. But Arkansas (1-2, 0-2) did itself no favors.

Arkansas now has some young, exciting offensive weapons and the type of play-calling that seems to give the Hogs a competitive chance, even against the big boys. But just as they looked in the fourth quarter at Fayetteville in last week's 52-41 loss to Georgia, the Razorbacks didn't appear grown-up enough for this stage.

Red Cup Rebellion:

Alabama is the number one team in the country ... considering the Tide's body of work - now that everyone has a substantial amount of it - none of the top teams in the country can boast such convincing resumes.  The season-opening win in Atlanta looks better and better every day.  And the difference between Arkansas' offense against Georgia and against Alabama is almost unbelievable.

Chris Low, ESPN:

Albeit unwittingly, Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino paid the Crimson Tide the ultimate compliment following Saturday's romp when he unloaded on his team.

Petrino said the Hogs came into the game not really believing they could win.

That says something about where the Hogs are as a football team, but it says a lot more about where the Crimson Tide are.

Harry King, Stephens Media:

On the plus side, Arkansas won’t see a defense as good as Alabama more than twice the rest of the season.
