OTB Hour 2 | Bama is Upon Us

Weekdays 7AM - 9AM

A Song of Purple and Gold starts off hour 2. The Swamp King gets inspiration from a legendary fellow Cajun to prepare him for the invasion of Bryant-Denny Keep. Who will prevail in this legendary battle?

Former Saints safety Roman Harper joins Off the Bench to talk football, starting with the trash talk surrounding LSU-Bama.

“You’ve still got to play the game,” Harper said. “The crazy thing is that everyone is talking trash, none of us are taking a snap out there.”

Next, Harper looks ahead to the Saints-Falcons game on Sunday.

“Atlanta can’t get out of their own way,” Harper said. “(The Saints) are the better team… at the end of the day, Atlanta can just go out there and be Atlanta and they should be okay.”

Later, Cole Cubelic of the SEC Network stops by Off the Bench to preview LSU-Alabama, starting with the match-up in the trenches.

“It’s a very interesting match-up,” Cubelic said. “I wonder how committed Alabama (is) to the run game. Will Alabama come out and try to impose their will? Even if they call it, it doesn’t mean that they’re going to run it.”

The Tigers’ defensive strategy is going to feature the LSU font holding strong, Cubelic said.

“I wonder, without Divinity, if maybe Dave Aranda thinks he can sit nickel in this game,” Cubelic said. “I don’t anticipate this LSU front just getting bullied. The good news for LSU: I don’t think Najee Harris has great vision.”

Closing out the show, Jordy breaks down his hype for Saturday’s game and the crew sends off the final show before the Tigers’ Tuscaloosa battle.
