Brodie out for season

Cecil's thoughts here.

I couldn't disagree more with Cecil on this one. You can't treat a football player, no matter how "franchise" he is, like Cameron's dad treats his Ferrari in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Injury happened on the first offensive possession of the second half, after the offense had sputtered in the first half--the 31-0 score was misleading, resulting mainly from costly turnovers by WCU. In fact, at halftime, Bama had only outgained WCU by about 50 yards or so. (I'll check on this.) It made perfect sense, in my opinion, to give Brodie one more possession to feel sharp before Arkansas. As it turns out, the injury occurred on what would have been Brodie's last play of the night.
