Geno Smith...really?  He's our CB!  Didn't realize that was WVU QB as well.

08/09/2012 - 10:40am We lost a bunch of key

We lost a bunch of key players and I am a bit concerned with the secondary play.  Very quick, but they lack game experience.  Michigan will have to have a balanced passing attack to keep our secondary in check. Should be a good game.

08/09/2012 - 8:24am It is hard to believe that

It is hard to believe that the game is only 23 days away.  I am going, are any of you?

08/09/2012 - 8:22am This site is amazing.  I am

This site is amazing.  I am inundated with all of the knowledge and statical data that everyone uses here.

I especially like how you included part II. of the data.  Returning starters are so hard to measure, because it does not take into account all of the returning contributing players.  Interesting to see how Bama is one of the lowest teams in terms of returning starters, but yet one of the highest in regards to contributing players.

08/09/2012 - 8:04am Defense Wins Championships

I know that it is a cliche to say that, but the flip side to the story is how the offense plays into that factor. 

In 2011, Alabama dominated time of possession.  Every single game Bama had won the T.O.P. battle at least through 3 quarters.  The factors that came into play are obviously turn-over ratio and how quickly the offense scores or punts. 

Alabama is not a high risk team when it comes to offense.  The main philosophy is to drive it out, keep the opponent's defense on the field, and minimize turn-overs to a maximum (a little Sabanism for you). 

This, in-turn, allows for a well rested defense as well as a balance offensive attack.  Rich Rod was a high pace, high risk coach that ran a lot of no huddles and gave the ball back to the other offense extremely fast (even if Michigan scored).  The downfall is that the defense suffered. 

I feel that because of his philosophy, Rich Rod would not have been successful at Alabama.

To be honest I am not a huge fan of his.  I like how he wins, but I believe there are some character issues with him.  But, in order to win, I feel as if you have to break some unwritten rules. 

08/08/2012 - 3:21pm Thank you for your comment. 

Thank you for your comment.  I was only following a story in a previous thread and thought it might be interesting to see comments from Michigan fans about the match-up with Alabama.  I do not mean any harm, nor do I think Bama will blow out Michigan.  From what I have seen with #16, we are going to have our hands full

08/08/2012 - 3:18pm A problem with Alabama's

A problem with Alabama's defense, IMO is that they try and go for the big hits and do not wrap up.  We have always had problems with tougher backs. With the speed at LB we always seemed to contain the faster, smaller guys.  Should be a great combination of speed (Robinson) and strength (Rawls).

I, for one, have no inside info on recruiting.  I do know we battle Michigan for some recruits and you have won a couple of those "battles".  It should be a great matchup on Sept 1.

08/08/2012 - 3:01pm Well I am guessing that

Well I am guessing that reading a blog at work might be frowned upon in most workplaces.

My appologies.  Never seen a blog with so many rules

08/08/2012 - 2:52pm Everytime I google a story

Everytime I google a story about Bama this website comes up.  I would guess you would get a lot of trolls.  I for one do not wish to be a troll.  Sorry If I came across that way.

Ok?  I'm guessing you mean my username?  Just a friendly Alabama fan.  I am not trolling. I just like talking football.  Like to get to know our "enemy" if you will

08/08/2012 - 2:45pm wow really.  They were

wow really.  They were covered by a Crimson Tide Bikini.  I thought that might make some friends...lol

What is RDT? Someone in another thread said that as well

08/08/2012 - 2:39pm Not really trolling.  I was

Not really trolling.  I was more or less asking a question.  It seems you do not have a decent RB after your starter.  I am guessing you do not want Robinson running the ball all the time.

08/08/2012 - 2:36pm why do my comments get greyed

why do my comments get greyed out?

 

08/08/2012 - 2:32pm So I take it our starting

So I take it your starting running back is not going to play? Looks like Robinson is going to have a long day.

Not sure if serious and have no idea what you are talking about

I was googling this story and came across this website.  I always wondered why ever team and fan is so concerend with SEC recruiting.  It just always seams that the teams who play the best are always the ones who are the cheeters.  Good luck on Sept 1st!
