Very long, but very good. In fact I'm sleeping like a baby tonight because of it. ".In Alabama’s case it has been guys like Tim Tebow, Cam Newton, Johnny Manziel (all Heisman Trophy winners), and even Brian Johnson who have been Saban’s kryptonite. Also take note of this season’s LSU/Clemson and Florida/Louisville bowl games. LSU and Florida are both molded in the Saban philosophy. As expected both teams dominated their opponents in the trenches, and dominating at the point of attack usually determines who wins football games. But LSU and Florida both ran into dynamic QBs (Tajh Boyd & Teddy Bridgewater) who were able to carve up even the best defensive strategies designed to stop them. That’s also why an unconventional team like Oregon would pose a much bigger threat/challenge to a team like Alabama than a team like Notre Dame. Notre Dame falls right into the wheelhouse of the type of team Alabama is accustomed to playing, and specifically built to beat."
