Yes we looked that good against a pretty good Arkansas team before I go any further. Now, let me tell you some things that I have noticed about this team and what could be shaping up for the remainder of the year
1.) Our defense is that good. We make teams look that bad. Did anyone notice that a Clemson team that we held to 0 yards rushing rushed for over 200 yards and hung 54 points this weekend? And Tulane gave, at the time #14 ECU, everything it wanted? WKU hung over 50 points this weekend as well. Arkansas is compariable to Tennessee who got beat by a pretty good Florida team. So where does that compare us.....right up there with the #1 team in some books, but not yet in mine. Yes, the teams we have dominated are pretty good teams, Clemson-top 25, we went into the dome an underdog and shut everyone up plus made their fans leave before the 4th quarter, impressive-yes, WKU-very good, underrated team, Arkansas-should finish 4th in the SEC. We went into Arkansas, in a series that has been defined by 7 point games, and whipped them all over the field, impressive-yes.
2.) The Barn and LSU do NOT look all that great. barn is self collapsing already this year, and after adding a heartbreaker loss ontop of that, might as well wright them off for the hunt to Atlanta. Auburn has a killer D, but speed wears down and thats what is going to hurt them all season, and thier offense cant move a ball to save their life. This new spread offense is a joke in my opinion. LSU is not that impressive, back up QB forced to start in a defending NC year, they are built like Alabama on both sides but what they dont have is a good coach, Les Miles is a joke of a coach and was leaving there last year until ESPN messed it up.....the game against Bama will determine who goes to Atlanta, even if we loose to UGA.
3.) UGA is scared of this game, calling for a blackout on Monday? Wow Mark, you desperate. Yes their win out west was a statement, but take a look at it. ASU is a decent team, but not an SEC team. That game was way to close in my opinion. ASU held the rushing game in somewhat of check, and Stafford is going to be Stafford (ie JPW twin). Now, UGA is built on the run, and what does Alabama do best? Ask Clemson. If UGA can not get their running game going we will be very competitive in this game. Their O line against our D line is well, Legend worthy. Expect the legend to grow this weekend. Our O line vs their D, good matchup there. Our size agianst their youth is going to be a good running day. All JPW has to do is hit the 5-10 yard curl, out routs and be accurate on 1 deep pass and we are golden. NO INT!!!!
4.) Special Teams is where this game is won. We have this kid named Arenas, lights out-goodnight.
5.) Can Alabama make it to Atlanta again? Yes, will they, I dont know. I am not thinking more than 1 game this year, and I hope the team is as well.
