The quest for #17 begins tonight.

Back in January, the Crimson Tide won the program's 16th National Championship. As Nick Saban is wont to remind us, that was last year. This year is a different season and a different year. Yet, I cannot help but see echoes of last season's team in Calvin Ridley, O.J. Howard, Cam Robinson, pretty much the whole defense and many others.

Alabama is the preseason number one ranked team and will face the troubled Southern Cal Trojans in Arlington, Texas. Jerry World should be a familiar place to many Tide players and personnel, seeing how they played two games in the Dallas Cowboys' stadium this past season - an opening 35-17 win over Wisconsin Badgers and a 38-0 rout over the Michigan State Spartans in the College Football Playoff.

For those of you new to RBR, we always start our Open Threads off with a "ROLL TIDE!"
