45, but who's looking at the real yardage right? Exaggerate to prove you're point much?
My opinion doesn't count because his team beat mine, but ego trip is a retard in every way possible. LSU IMO is the second best team in the sec, but bama is clearly the best. They found a way to win at Death Valley while playing pretty bad. That's tough to do.
What you are calling, giving up underneath, is when Bama was forced to remove their nickel back and add a LB. In this situation, Bama's weakness was exposed. Bama's pass D is weak when they are in base coverage. Also, Bama's offense is not explosive when it faces a D that can play solidly out of a base look.
You dont think Saban dosent realize this dude. Hes not stupid. Hes the best coach in Football for a reason. He will have a gameplan for them.
Yeah your defense dominated Bama all the way to 6 yds per rush....smh. Give up the hate. LSU played the better second half, but Bama found a way to win. All the matters.
Has anybody remembered to mention that LSU's offense is terrible and looked amazing against Alabama's D while leaving several points on the field?
Like it or not Bama fans, Saban's defense was exposed. The nickel back is nothing more than a rover. If you neutralize the stars effectiveness and force Bama to remove him from the field, Bama's pass coverage is weak. Bama won, and Saban looked beat because he knows. .
While Ego has clearly had a rough night...his points are pretty valid.
The key to beating Bama is not getting your doors blown off the first 15 minutes.
The reason the nickel has been so effective is because Bama has been dominating these lame-o teams the first two months from the start. When Bama's up 21-0 and knows a team has to pass to come back, its over.
No team will score in masses vs. Bama. The Tigers were able to keep the points down, allowing the OC to call a balanced game. Couple that with Mettenberger's strong arm, and the short-intermediate passing game was available all day against the Tide.
Now, with that said, to beat this Bama team it takes:
REALLY good front seven
stable of solid RB's
and a strong armed-qb
What this game told me was that Bama CAN be beaten, just a matter of whether it will be or not.
This game proved, to me, that KSU has no shot against Bama. Klein won't be able to just bully Bama, and their defense is nowhere near good enough to stop TJ/Lacy. I also think that Oregon would be contained by UA, since their game is predicated on being more athletic and disciplined than you are, and Saban's team don't fall for that nonsense.
The teams that I think can be Bama are (in this order):
LSU - clearly, they could do it, but they already had their chance
FSU - dominant D-line, beastly RB's, good enough QB
ND - Very solid front 7, 3 talented RB's, strong armed QB with mobility, great TE for intermediate passing game
UGA/UF - Good defenses, good RB's...talented QB's (albeit inconsistent)
Aggy - Manziel is real good, RB's are really good, and defense has been very solid vs. Pro-style teams (Ole Miss and LA. Tech run spread)
little self appreciation /post
This point seems to be reminiscing over and over. I do actually agree with it in some aspects. Nico Johnson is a pathetic coverage LB. I seriously wish Saban would do whats right for this team and play CJ Mosley in every package and on every down. Mosley,our best LB, probably played 35% of the snaps tonight. His coverage skills are elite. He has the Alabama record for Pick 6's as a LB. Why Saban plays Nico ALWAYS in the base package is beyond me. Mosley is now 240+ lbs (was 220 when he first started playing) and had been averaging about 10 tackles a game the last 5-6 games.
Lastly, Bama's blitzes tonight were foolish. We get more pressure out of our front 4 than we seem to notice. But we didn't use our pressure DL packages. No Pettway (until he stopped the 4th and 1 by Ware). No Pagan (had at least 2 TFLs tonight). We left ourselves vulnerable with those stupid lazy ass delayed blitzes by our only good coverage safety (Lester). I hope to God we ditch that nonsense because if we use the right personnel, we have an incredible 4-man pressure package with Square/Pagan, Pettway, Dickson, and Hubbard. Jesse Williams got owned all night tonight,but Ed Stinson was castrated by Vadal Alexander. I hope we look at some things that were exposed and make some changes to our DL and LB setups or a team like UGA could give us trouble with their ability to pass extremely well with their 21 package.
All the excuses Alabama fams are coming up with for struggling against LSU are bogus. LSU is simply the first top 15 or top 20 team you have played all year. You can get mad and call me names or point out how much Auburn sucks, but name another top 15 or 20 team you have played. The idea that Alabama was invincible or the greatest team ever based on playing nobody was always laughable

so much butthurt
LSU lost to Florida and beat 2-7 Auburn by a safety. LSU still has 1-2 more losses in them this year, imo.
Lulz. We are in the position we are in because our permanent opponent is Fla and we played/playing one of the toughest stretches of any team in the nation.
Yea we shit the bed earlier in the season but our SEC schedule isn't a running joke across america. This is just like last year except we won't get the rematch. Bama won and we lost but you crackheads saying Bama can only beat them self didn't watch the game tonight because I saw LSU beat Bama up and down the field. We just didn't beat them where it mattered on the scoreboard. Congrats Bama.
It was one of the best games I have ever seen and I am Damn proud to call myself Tiger tonight.
Watch out Bammers, the Dawgs are coming!
The fact that you are still posting in a Bama thread in the middle of the night tells me all I need to know about you. 2-7 hurts doesnt it tranny? Sweet win against NMSU today lulz
Name one team that has the talent that LSU has? I'll wait for your response. The Bulldogs have talent but not on LSU's level.. FYI... This is a rivalry game and LSU has waited on this game for 10 months!!!

hmmm, three drives that equal...oh, I dunno, Touchdowns..making that 21 points to LSU's 17 - whatever you think happened, doesn't matter, Bama's D stood up when it had too. did they get pushed around some, sure thing. Death Valley, LSU wanting revenge for 21-0, hype build up, nothing for the Tigers to lose...Bama's trap game. you betcha. all that is true and forget you internet posters, i'll give props to the LSU players, they played their guts out.
Bama won - they made it happen, when they freaking needed it to happen. the score is 21-17 - sit and spin on that for a while, doesn't matter what you say about stats or this or that, or exposure.
9-0 Roll Tide - oh yea, and I never once gave up on them. even when they had a chance to put this away when fumbling on the 5.
yup, that's right - Bama still had a chance in this game to put LSU away. They didn't play their best and got the best from LSU and still won 21-17 - yup, again, i 'll state it
Bama won when LSU played their best game - and they lost. 21-17
I make no excuses.
three drives that matter = 21 points
LSU can gain 4000 yards of offense, and guess what, they only got 17.
know what that means butthurt? 21-17 - Bama wins. what a chump.
invincible ? no one is....
but the best part other than getting the W vs LSU with a poor outing is getting to play another suk-azz team in just a few weeks.
now that will be laughable.
Your tears of rage taste like sweet sweet wine. You are a hater and I will be thinking of you when we raise that Crystal Football in Miami in January 2013.
Why do you post?
Do you have some pigs to turn around?
The only people saying Bama was so good was the media, its always that way. I remember when USC and FSU were going to play for Natty. Any team can get beat at anytime. Bama played its worst game of the year and that does happen and LSU played there best and Mett had a career day. All that said, bama still found a way to win while not playing well. Rather play a bad game and win...you think LSU is saying well, we played good..Dam near all teams we play concern me, and yea TAM is next. Could go down the list of every unbeaten team and find times that they should have lost or if something goes a different way, they dont win there game. Happens on all levels. Not sure why there are posters that are the biggest Jack asses?? (Aubie25, EgoTrip)??
IDK but several have asked me that, I'll try and hunt down her name.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
There's nothing to correct. Don't feed the troll. He doesn't even believe what he posted. LSU simply played a near perfect game on offense. The got themselves into 3rd and short and was able to convert 50% of them(10/20). This allowed them to run 85 offensive plays to Bama's 52 offensive plays. Think about that...they ran 33 more offensive plays than we did. Our defense was gassed near the end but they got the stop. LSU had a fresh defense and we went 72 yards on 5 plays for the winning TD.
I tried to tell my friends that LSU was the one team that scared me and they thought I was crazy. They all said we would win by 3 TDs like the BCS title game but I told them Baton Rogue is a different animal at night and revenge is on their mind. Throw in a week off last week and there were plenty of things going in LSUs favor.
This is the best win of the year by any team. LSU just doesn't lose in that building and the yard a legit top 5 team. There is zero chance they drop another game. I still think they end up in a BCS game.
Wait so you (a barner) were in this thread till 2 o'clock in the morning arguing whether Alabama was or was not who the media said they were and you even use the words laughable?
Bwahaha now that is some sad sad sht right there. Game over.
