The number that will not be on your side will be the final score of the SEC championship. I hope that the rematch against Michigan will be as exciting as last years rematch against LSU. I hear that Epcot theme park (Epcot Center) is a blast. Bama fans wanted a rematch so bad last year that they are going to get another one.
FWIW, BYU ranked #3 in total defense
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
And Michigan is #12. Doesn't mean they are good.
just presenting facts. do what you want with them.
Stats are skewed due to the talent they are facing, if BYU was in the SEC their defense wouldn't be ranked number 3..
I agree. I think you would agree as well that ND's defense is better than BYU's even though BYU's is ranked higher....and it probably isn't that close either, IMO.
We might have been outplayed by LSU, mainly due to Mett having the game of his life and they converted a million 3rd and longs, but to say we got out physicaled is wrong. We ran for more yards with average per carry of 6.6, LSU ran for 2.8 a carry. The bad hand off by McCarron to Yeldon was a huge turning point in that game and the reason we had to come from behind in the last minute.
A&M played a perfect game and deserved to win. We turned over the ball and they didn't, we couldn't get off the field on the third down and had to pass the ball more than usual due to be down 20 after the first quarter and still had a very good chance to win at the end. We didn't lose because we were out physicaled.
I'm gonna need the reasoning behind this prediction...
Better OFF and MR. Stache i work in an office full of ND fans if you guys beat UGA, I don't want you to beat ND, I need you to beat ND.. preesh
Work in an abused boys home I see.... we'll do what we can.
Numbers aren't that important at this juncture. Georgia was playing atrocious and despicable football up until they started calling each other out in the media and had a team meeting. If you want to calculate numbers after the Florida game I'm down to listen.
If you want to take out the USC game that's fine because I do agree they suck donkey balls in all facets of the game. They are just not good. I also don't think Michigan is any good this year and would have a losing record if they played in the Pac12 or SEC. Notre Dame straight up took a shat on Oklahoma, a team I picked to beat ND by 28 points. Bama should have lost to LSU and got outplayed in that game and the A&M game.
I've never been a fan of bringing up a team playing down to their competition. It's how they play against their quality oppositions that I truly care about. UF has sucked more d this year than Pamela Anderson on offense and yet has the best overall quality wins in all of college football. Our stats are atrocious and yet we raped the "#1 defense" in the country.
I think Bama is still the best team in the country when they put it all together and it's not even close for who is second. But at the moment, I'm going to go with Georgia in this game because they are in that zone where they are playing almost flawlessly. I could be dead wrong and Bama could straight up rape them, but I'm doubting it at this juncture. I think ND will beat either team in the title game regardless.
Who has Georgia played after Florida?
I know you know this, but for those who don't:
Ole Miss (6-6)
Georgia Southern (FCS)
Georgia Tech (6-6)

God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
Michigan is looking forward to the rematch.
So, Georgia's opponent's records make you feel that Bama has a shot. One word, Orlando.
This just goes to show you how the lunatic fringe cling to absolutely anything for hope. I would hope any team worth their salt could get into a "zone" finishing up with those 4 games. Lmao. This sport isn't that complicated. It's going to come down to who has the better game plan and who has the better players that execute the game plan better. once helmets start flying, team meetings and imaginary zones won't mean shit. I'm not sure who wins this game because both team's have exceptional players but I do know it won't have to do with team meetings and being in any zone. Alabama's last 2 games have been a combined score of 98-0. Big Damn deal.

Congrats on not being able to follow the conversaton
He literally does nothing but troll Alabama fans. Pay him no attention.
A national title match up between Bama and ND would be historic, but a rematch against Michigan is realistic. Enjoy Orlando.
Horrible at it IMO. i know Devidee tends to troll the SEC as a whole, but he does a far superior job.
I give solid predictions. Bama fans call it trolling. USC said I was sick. Nebraska said I was psycho. Oregon said stop waisting my time. FSU said I am a Gator. Kansas State said do you know Baylor's recod. GA fans will be saying that I know my shiat. ND fans are smart.
Since this is the stretch in which everyone feels UGA's defense has become dominating, I'll start with Ole Miss and Auburn, since Alabama played both of them as well this season.
Against Ole Miss, UGA held them to 234 yards and 4.11 yds/play when Alabama held them to 218 yards and 3.21 yds/play.
Against Auburn, UGA held them to 238 yards and 4.86 yds/play when Alabama held them to 163 yards and 3.47 yds/play.
Against defenses ranked in the top 25 in total defense (3 games), not including UGA, Auburn averaged 186.0 yds/game. That is 52 yards less than UGA held them to.
Now to GaTech. Georgia Tech was averaging 398.8 yds/game in the previous 4 games leading up to playing UGA. They then put up 426 against UGA. Ga Tech was also averaging 435.7 yds/game against FBS teams, which is only 10 yards more than they had against UGA.
Also, against defenses, not including UGA that Ga Tech faced that were in the top 25 in total defense (3 games), Ga Tech averaged 282.0 yds per game, which is 144 yards less than they had against UGA.
There are some numbers for you involving games after Florida to think about. When you look at it, it somewhat gets to the point of why some don't really look to much into the numbers UGA has put up defensively in these last 4 games as teams that have good defenses, have frankly done better.
What team does Ego Trip claim to be a fan of? I forget these days...
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
They were in the zone
