Bo Wallace: We can put points on Alabama

Mississippi v Texas Getty Images

Johnny Manziel lights up Alabama a couple times and now, suddenly, everyone thinks the Crimson Tide’s defense is vulnerable.

But not everyone is Johnny Manziel.

Especially not Bo Wallace.

The Mississippi quarterback told the media on Tuesday that the Rebel offense should well against the Crimson Tide when the two teams meet this coming Saturday.

“We can put points on them,” Wallace said. “I think we can put points on anybody. We just got to show up and play and it’s the same thing every week: Let’s stay on schedule and control the tempo and don’t have any turnovers.”

It’s going to take a lot more than that, Bo. Despite its struggles against A&M, the Alabama defense is littered with first-round talents. Ole Miss isn’t exactly burning up the scoreboard, either, but Wallace didn’t seem to be care.

“We have better receivers than A&M,” Wallace said. “They want to talk about Mike Evans being so good; well, we have Donte (Moncrief) and I think Laquon (Treadwell) is going to be that way. I think we have better players on the outside than A&M does.”

Maybe Wallace backs up his talk and leads Ole Miss to an epic upset. However, I think it’s more likely that Wallace will see first hand just how good Alabama really is…and that not everyone can do what Johnny Football can do.

    The very best thing that Wallace could have done is to simply talk the Alabama defense up and take a more respectful approach….just lay low, he’ll get his shot on Saturday.

    Saban is a master at taking this type of talk and using it to his advantage.

    It does absolutely NO good to talk before a game. Even if your confident and believe that you can score 50 on Alabama, just keep your pie hole shut…and DO it.

    Hugh Freeze will walk this back tomorrow, but he can’t put the Genie back in the bottle.

    Bama has had trouble with up-tempo offenses. I don’t think Ole Miss will win, but I also don’t think they will get steamrolled. They’ll get their fair share of points, and more so than many other teams will against Bama.

    Who does he think he’s playing…Texas?

    Ole Miss is a good team, loads of young talent. A close game would not suprise me at all. Best of luck to both sides.

    Now why would he want to heap more on his own shoulders?… Receivers can only score when they get the ball and thats going to be a chore for Mr. Wallace now that he’s asserted superiority. The BAMA D will make it their business to stay in his face and disrupt his accuracy with the ball..

    I give Ole Miss credit for a spectacular recruitment class that just came in, but I don’t think it will be the slug fest he’s predicting….

    I’ll be sitting in the stands with 101,000+ screaming brethren at Bryant-Denny for this one. It’s sure to be a good game. :)

    Dude, he’s lobbing shots over the bow at two teams he still has to play… wtf?

    Now I’ve said it before that Bama can overlook Ole Miss at their peril. That goes for the whole SEC. They have a great squad and Wallace is very underrated. But what good does it do for him to give not only Bama some bulletin board material but A&M as well.

    I will be watching this game this weekend and to be honest, at this point I hope he beats Bama because the Aggies need Bama to lose.

    And he’s kidding about Moncrief and Treadwell being better than Mike Evans right….

    Well isn’t that just cute of little bo….

  12. dcroz says: Sep 25, 2013 4:09 PM

    If his receivers are so good–and better than Evans–then why is each averaging less than 50 yards a game?

    And it’s not spread offenses that ‘Bama has problems with; it’s spread offenses with a highly-mobile QB that’s as much a threat with his feet as he is with his arm, and those cause EVERYONE fits. Wallace can run the ball, but not like Tim Tebow, Cam Newton, or Johnny Manziel. He will have his shot Saturday night, but he’s not doing himself or his team any favors by running his trap ahead of time.

    Alabama isn’t Texas.

    So cute and innocent. Next QB at Ole Miss that will beat Alabama is one of Eli Mannings daughters.

  15. jason1214 says: Sep 25, 2013 7:50 PM

    Roll Tide 31-17

    Nothing to see here….

  16. mediocrebob says: Sep 26, 2013 12:29 AM

    What’s he supposed to say? I’m not sure if we can put points up against them or not?

  17. 8to80texansblog says: Sep 26, 2013 2:39 PM

    Again I think Wallace is an underrated QB and Ole Miss is a team to be reckoned with but not sure what’s going through his head when he says Moncrief is better than Mike Evans…. He might as well say he is better than Manziel or Mariota.

  18. djbillyd says: Sep 27, 2013 7:02 PM

    So, Bo will get snot slapped into apologizing for the butt whipping they are gonna receive tomorrow. These wimps are gonna learn. Oh yeah they gonna learn!

  19. normtide says: Sep 28, 2013 10:14 PM

    Might want to check that Bo

  20. 8to80texansblog says: Sep 28, 2013 10:42 PM

    Yeah not so much….

    And Moncrief and Treadwell combined didn’t come close to matching HALF of what Evans did against the Tide….

  21. goodfieldnohit says: Sep 28, 2013 11:43 PM

    “We can put points on them,” Wallace said. “I think we can put points on anybody. ”

    Receiving REC YDS TD LG
    Evans 6 116 2 49

    Bo, tell us again how many points you put up on those Bammers.

  22. dhardy8207 says: Sep 29, 2013 8:49 AM

    ROLL TIDE BO!!!!…..

  23. jonofrisco says: Sep 29, 2013 10:45 PM

    Bo was right he scored 2 points.

  24. willatx says: Sep 30, 2013 2:12 PM

    I guess Bo don’t know Alabama, LOL!

    @mythirien “I’ll be sitting in the stands with 101,000+ screaming brethren at Bryant-Denny for this one. It’s sure to be a good game.”

    Really? That is incredible. I didn’t even think Alabamas’ stadium would be open that day? But hey, if Alabama can sell out their stadium to a game being played 175 miles away… I am just in awe… like I said… that is incredible!
