Eddie Lacy put his arms on both sides of the podium and did his best to answer the questions: What happened? How does it feel? Where do you go from here? "There's only one emotion," he said. "Everybody is down. It is what it is." The starting running back for the University of Alabama looked at the lectern where notes would usually be, grasping for the right thing to say in such an unfamiliar position. The No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide had just lost at home to No. 15 Texas A&M. It was an unimpressive loss for the team and for Lacy, who never quite got going running the football. His 92 yards and a touchdown wasn't enough when Alabama faced first-and-goal from the 6-yard line, down 4 points with less than 2 minutes remaining.
