MR. CRIMSON TEAM COMPARISON: #14 LSU- #1 ALABAMA

I've done a little studying, and the more studying I do of these two teams, the less worried I am about them.

POSITIVES: WALLBREAKERS QUOTIENT: How aggressive is your team? How many points can they throw right out of the gate? How many games in the season thus far has the team been able to score 3 touchdowns or more?

LSU: 3/8 (highest ranked team to wallbreak? #77 WASHINGTON (4-4))

ALABAMA: 8/8 (highest ranked team to wallbreak? #9 MSU (7-1))

WALLBREAKER: +5 for BAMA.

WALLMAKER QUOTIENT: How stout is your team? How many teams in the course of the season have failed to score more than 1 touchdown against you?

LSU: 1/8 (#77 WASHINGTON again).

ALABAMA: 4/8 (highest ranked team to wall in? Again, #9 MSU).

WALLMAKER: +3 for BAMA.

MOUNTAIN-TOPPER QUOTIENT: How many games can your team amass 30 points or more by the end of regulation?

LSU: 4/8 (highest ranked team to mountain-top? Washington, again).

ALABAMA: 8/8

MOUNTAIN-TOPPER: +4 for BAMA.

STEAL-AT-WILL QUOTIENT: How many times can your team manage to steal the ball 3 times or more from the other team?

LSU: 3/8 (highest ranked team to steal at will from: #16 TEXAS A&M (6-2)).

ALABAMA: 6/8 (MSU again, but the most steals were definitely at #87 ARKANSAS).

STEAL-AT-WILL: +3 for BAMA.

PILEDRIVER QUOTIENT: How many times can your offense push the other guys defense for 20+ first downs in a game?

LSU: 4/8 (#18 South Carolina got pushed around a bit).

ALABAMA: 6/8 (MSU again).

PILEDRIVER: +2 for BAMA.

NEGATIVES:

STRIP-SEARCH QUOTIENT: How many times was another team able to out steal you on takeaways?

LSU: 2 times (worst team to manage it? FCS Towson).

ALABAMA: None.

STRIP-SEARCHED: Minus 2 for LSU.

GASSED-OUT QUOTIENT: How many times was another team able to hold you to under 20 first downs in the game?

LSU: 4 times (Auburn kept them to just 15 first downs).

ALABAMA: 2 times (Western Kentucky had our offense struggling, holding us to 17 first downs).

GASSED-OUT: Minus 2 for LSU.

RESULTS? LSU- 9. ALABAMA- 30. I'm not saying this is gonna be the score (don't be silly), I'm just saying when you look at their abilities against other teams, ALABAMA clearly has an edge. In basically all facets.
