They are incredibly talented on defense and play very conservative on offense.
They are on the rise. This is muschamps second season and the year the players buy-in.
Whichever of these two teams wins you can expect ESPN and every other media outlet to over-blow it. They have too. The college football world (outside of Bama and LSU) is sick of Bama and LSU. The media has to try to keep people interested. That's why you had a USC team with a sketchy defense and almost no depth ranked #1 in the pre-season polls. The "Anybody But Bama" mentality is something we'll all just have to live with for the next several years.
I can't pull for the Vols (ever) but if Tennessee beats UF it might actually be better for us. The Vols would vault in the ranking and, unlike the Gators, they're on our schedule. The chances of Tennessee making it to the Bama game undefeated are slim but should that happen Bama would be poised to beat another Top 10 in front of another national audience, and after national interest the Arkansas game took a dive we could use that hype. I also like the sound of beating three Top Ten teams (Michigan, Tennessee, and LSU) in the regular season plus another likely Top Ten in the SECCG. The best case scenario for me (aside from Tennessee losing every game they play) would be for Bama to face Top Ten Tennessee teams twice this season and thus get to crush the hopes and dreams of the Vol Nation two times in one year.
A Gator win tonight makes the LSU/UF game in a couple of weeks bigger.
I'll eat my crow. Looks like 2 babbage, undisciplined teams played and the better won.
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
