Thats what everyone said about not putting Oklahoma #1 last year...and Bama in 2010, and Florida in 2009
please excuse me while i update your HTML
They put up 2 TDs against our second string defense, nuff said
In the first game of the year i might add...LSU got better as the year went on on Defense. And put USC in the SEC and i bet not many people would be talking about their offense as much, same goes for Oregon
I'm not criticizing your defense. I used LSU as an example because it was the #2 defense in the country last year. How many other schools put up 27 on you? Oregon has one of the best offenses in the country. That was my point.
I'm worried cuz 3 DBs left this offseason
That's the highest I've seen Michigan in any pre-season ranking. This assumes no more than 1 loss... and they're already 0-1 b/c of game 1... also a good chance DRob takes a big hit in that game and just ain't right for the rest of the year.
Better not be and no one
USC would be just fine in any conference, IMO.
Michigan will beat bama
Did that Boudreaux's Butt Paste I sent you help any, or are you still having issues?
Bama will be 0-1 after game one, and there's a good chance the defense isn't quite the same after chasing Denard all day,
Errbody getcha troll on. Errbody errbody getcha muhf*ckin troll on.
We're still playing Michigan, right?
and then lose to the Irish, Sparty, the Huskers & the Buckeyes.....
hey, my scenario is just as plausible as yours
fine yes, but i think they are a little overrated like Oklahoma last year
I have been studying Blue a little this week and Brady Hoke has that program reinvigorated, very 'Sabanesque.
I think this game prepares the Tide for LSU, who mentally is whipped before our game every year. Watch tape after they win on occasion and they act like Saint's fans at the Superbowl it's the second coming of Jesus.
Alabama is a top ten at the start of the season with full potential to go either way, with Phillip Sims backing AJ yes top five, right now it would be unethical to place an inside top five slot pressure on a team who will be starting so many new faces this season.
P.S. I have always lurked here, just turned in my notice at Disney/espn and retired from Robustness.
Like a rented mule.
For the love of God, just stop.
Square, Jesse Williams, CJ Mosely, Nico Johnson, Vinnie Sunseri, Trey DePriest, Dee Milliner, Robert Lester on Defense
The whole O-Line is back AJ with older WR corps. Trents gone, but Eddie Lacy, Yeldon, Fowler, and Dee Hart. Heck RB's dont matter when you have 3 first-round pics on your O-line
Very well could be. I think the difference is that Landry Jones is overrated. Matt Barkley is not.
If USC stumbles, it will be due to lack of depth and/or injuries. The defense will be serviceable and the offense should be great. There is only 3 games on their schedule that should pose an issue.
@Washington- tough place to play and a solid team that usually underachieves, but gets up for USC
Oregon- their offense can match them
@Stanford- the running game could give their defense issues up front.
Other than that, they are set, and I think the Stanford and Washington games are less likely to be close that it may appear, IMO.
Look at the post count. The $5 per handle would have been nice here.
Yes i understand, but USC has a clear cut easy road except Oregon. I mean by years end they may only play one ranked team depending on how Stanford is without Luck...thats worse than Florida State in the ACC
Playing a relatively weak schedule does not make them a great team.
No, no its not. Washington and Utah both have strong teams and could end up in the top 25 (many preseason polls have them in the top 25) as could Cal or even UCLA for that matter.
Also your comparison to Oklahoma is just novelty sports speak with zero spine to it. Same goes for your "they wouldn't perform in the SEC" bull***t which the NFL clearly disagrees with. That offense is littered with 1st round picks, and unless the SEC is the NFC they would get theirs.
