Makes me think they're going to be fantastic. No off the field issues, they all say the right thing in pressers, and they're enormously talented. They seem to have bought in, and they all sound kinda like Saban. We could lose three games like 2010, but I don't think so. I think we're in for something special this year.
hope you're right...I agree

Yes I agree & in 2010 Coach Saban was in a bad mood at most of his PC's & this year he is cracking jokes & seems very happy & normally that is a very good sign for Alabama fans. This might be Coach Saban's best team & the offense should be explosive .
The A train is up to speed now folks....who's gonna dare step in front and try to slow it down, let alone stop it?

I hope you are right.
I have a hard time thinking they are better than last year, but if they're close, there's still plenty of room to run the table and win it all.
Aside from one outing, last year's team beat the absolute SH*T out of everyone. 2009 had 3 or 4 close games than 2011. Haters will argue we were lucky to get there last year, and considering the long shot Iowa State was to beat Ok St, they have a point. But the 2011 team did not win one single close game. LUCK often compliments close victories. There was none of that last year as we lost the only close game we played. That, to me, makes that a special team.
I'll take a look at the product we have on the field before reserving final judgement, but my hunch now is that this team, at least at the beginning of the year, will not quite be 2011, but it still has a strong chance to be 14+ points better than everyone else except LSU and USC, and it is better than both of those teams.
And I think no one has a better chance of winning it all than we do.
Where the defense will be a lot better is pass rush & because Alabama should put points on the board in a hurry could lead to more turnovers due to teams trying to keep pace.
