I'm not trying to base anything on history really. I'm simply stating a fact that the SEC is a tougher conference to play in than probably any other conference out there.

I don't think Bama will win because they are from the SEC or because history tells me so. I think they will win because defensive teams that Texas has played has given them tons of trouble this year and none of them had defenses as tough as Bama. I don't think Texas can pass the ball on Bama like they want because the secondary is fast. I don't think they can run the ball like Bama can. I think it will come down to the defense, but more often than not when it comes down to a defensive battle it all lies on who can RUN THE BALL, and Bama has a decisive edge there.

agreed...I just don't think it will be an easy win at all...and I was getting the impression that you did.

BTW congrats on your first heisman winner. I thought it should have gone to Suh or Gerhardt, but I understand why it went where it did too. Got no problem with any of those three winning it.

Just out of curiosity, are there any other Maryland Terps fans on this site besides me?

It's hard watching them sometimes, but I am a loyal fan.

Go Terps!!!

Haha.

Well I am just happy I was alive to see the Men's basketball win a National championship.

Football on the other hand is a different story. Since I can't look forward to my team making it anywhere. I take pride in my least favorite teams going down.

THANK YOU ALABAMA!!!

Blacklist- when comparing the two teams I would completely agree with you that Alabama with Ingram has the huge edge in having a better rushing offense. But Texas has a great rush defense though it will not be tested as much as Alabama will. To me what this game boils down to more is that it will be close going late into the fourth quarter and knowing that Ingram will be a marked man by our defense McElroy will have to come up big to help 'Bama win the game. He might rise to occasion or he might not- he's not the most experienced QB and I'm very curious to see how he responds to not only the championship pressure but the pressure Muschamp will put on him. If Texas can contain Ingram without letting him blow up or the 'Bama offense to grind the game down McElroy will have to make plays against a great pressure D with a excellent secondary. Honestly- to me- that's what the game could hinge on. That and if Greg Davis(our OC) actually pulls his head out his ass and calls a better game and doesn't leave Colt on an island to make all the plays.

The blueprint is there to slow Texas down- OU and Nebraska- but Texas will have the month to hopefully look at that and come up with other options and tactics(I very much so) but I really think even if it's a low scoring game I still think we could pull it out because I honestly don't think Alabama will run through Muschamp's defense.

Two of our coaches have coaching experience with Saban- Muschamp and Major Applewhite- it's not like they don't have good insight to him, his coaching philosophy and potential tendencies.

I think this game will be tight and won late in the 4th quarter and in that scenario I'd definitely take Colt over McElroy- provided of course that Colt and the coaches actually remember how to manage the clock under 2 minutes.

I don't think anything played on the gridiron can be called easy when you are competing at Div. 1 level or higher, so don't get me wrong on that.

However I do think with the defense and running offense of Alabama they should dominate the game. Now, I'm not saying they are going to beat Texas by 3-4 scores by any means. Alabama's team isn't set up to be high scoring playing against good teams. They run the ball, grind the clock, and rely on their defense to win games. The fact of the matter is that both teams have game plans that they run, it's just that bama is better at running their gameplan. There might not be a huge point difference in this game, but I think the stats will be dominant in favor of Alabama.

On a side note I think the OSU/Ole Miss game should be a good Big 12/SEC game...good matchup. Not too fond of the LSU/Penn State matchup. Think if Les Miles can remove his head from his rectum that LSU should sufficiently stomp Penn State. I also feel sorry for Cinncinnati coming off a great season and having to face Florida after taking a hard loss, which sucks because I think Florida is going to stomp them and make and example out of them and I can't stand Florida.

Ok...I guess we will agree to disagree then...because I don't think Bama has seen a secondary like this yet. UF and LSU both had equivalent talent, but held back with the pressure throughout their games. UT won't do that. They will play you guys like Tenn did and they got the talent to win doing it that way. Their d-line and secondary combo is by far the best combo you will have seen all year. LSU had a better secondary, but our d-line could not hold up for 4 quarters. UF would have had a better combo, but their best defensive player not named Joe Haden was suspended.

As for the other games, I think Miles does what other coaches with pro-experience do in the time before bowls. He scouts and gameplans his own team. That is why we have been so successful in bowl games. We usually have very new wrinkles that teams have problems adjusting to. That being said, Joe Pa is great at in-game adjustments on defense. Not sure about offense, looks pretty similar for the past 40 years or so...haha.

Okie State is going to get worked...they are pretty average without Hunter and Bryant in my eyes. Unless Snead goes all Jake Delhomme on them and throws 5 int's...they should cruise to a 13 pt victory or so.

We are definately going to have to disagree about the first paragraph there because Alabama has definately seen secondary's that were much better than what Texas has to offer. LSU and UF secondary's are probably the two best in the nation to be honest. LSU has safety's the size of Texas' linebackers. They are bigger, faster, and stronger guys. Texas can't compare speed in the secondary to LSU or UF by no means IMO...just no comparisson.

And they aren't as productive against worse offenses...it is about results and UT has forced way more turnovers then any team Bama has faced.

You are going to be surprised.
