Bama fan here ... looking forward to the game w you Michigan folks this year. Can't get here fast enough, can it? Ton of respect for your program & tradition - and I think the program is great hands with Hoke. I will personally put on Maize & Blue the week y'all play Meyer & Ohio State.
Looking fwd to a great game - Roll Tide!

Im looking forward to seeing how our defense plays.
Looking forward to it, too. We're hoping to catch you napping in game 1.
Fast, physical & nasty.
It will be boring after the 1st quarter. When does SEC play start?
That'll be hard to do, but I hear ya! Saban likes to sched these season-opening prime-timers. Great for both programs & gives the fans so much to look forward to instead of a cream puff opener like Kent State or Appalach- ... just messing with you! ;-)
Yeah, can't wait for the classic Bama v. Ole miss, msu, tenn, a&m games. Much better than the Michigan game.
Really? You guys should have more faith in your team. I don't think we'll put you away that quickly.
I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Appa-who?
Man, I hope. But I think it'll be a 4 quarter game & hopefully we put'm away late.
I hear ya! I have one or two I have mental block on as well, like UL-Monsomebody ...
also interested to see our RB rotation during the game.
I'm ready to see what our reserves look like in the second half against Michigan ones
I'm going to assume you meant to quote me and not yourself.
Well, I think the one advantage we have is our OL vs their front. I think they'll do some things offensively that'll make it tough, but I don't see them holding up for 4 quarters up front on D. We'll see!
Ha, yep. Damn iPad.
I think this is going to be where the game is decided. If we constantly have to bring all our LBs up in run support, we've lost the game. If, on the other hand, BWC can play passably and Ondre Pipkins develops well, we might be able to make it a game there. I really miss Mike Martin though, I'd love to see him going straight-up with Barret Jones.
Hey...don't make me bring up Louisiana-Monroe...
Too late ...
Bama should win fairly easily. Bama's D is to fast for Denard and Bama's front 7> Michigan OL.
If thats the case ND must have had one of the slowest D's in D1 football the past two years ago
Bama will get their points. Might not be a ton though. Think it comes down to how we handle Denard. I think we shut his run game down and force the pass. His don't look to good most of the time, with exception of course. If UM can't handle our inside guys and we shut down the midle, like we always do, then all we have to do is stop Denard on the edge. No small feat but doable. True Bama usually shuts down running QBs but Denard is smaller and shiftier than what were used to. I think he gets loose a few times. But then again that smallness may get him carted of the field if one of our big guys earholes him. I love the dynamic of the game, can't wait. Fear ThaMonstar!

Spartan fan here... don't worry no flaming.
Anxious to see the game. As posted before, to see Bama's rushing situation and to see if Michigan has changed the offense at all.
