So I've been trying to find what their fanbase is saying about the game, and what their chances might be...and I came across this gem on HailTheVictors.com.
"I can tell you I'm not stirring the pot. I want Michigan beat the *%#* out of 'Bama. I still think Michigan has a good shot at doing just that.
Alabama's starting roster for offense and defense will have 7 freshman, 6 sophomores, and 9 Juniors, no Seniors.
Their receiving corp is made out of 2 sophmores and 6 freshman. Right side of the OL is 2 sophmores and LT is a freshman.
Bama plays mostly in a 3-4 defense. 3 out of 4 of those line backers are freshman. Up front it's all Juniors backed up by freshman. If M's offensive line can handle those three juniors i'm sure there will be opportunities to find linebackers out of position, etc..."
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
Not sure what roster this guy was looking at.

Is he looking at Auburn's depth chart?

......What? (As I scratch my head...) Is he looking at PS3 roster?
Probably the one Trooper Taylor hands out to recruits.
I see that inbreeding is not exclusive to the Auburn and Tennessee fan base.
Alabama State ???
If somebody doesn't inform him of the facts, he's in for a really long Sept Saturday night in the near future.

Let's keep this on the down low, and let him find out for himself.
"Character" is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.
Just imagine his facial expression in the 2nd quarter of the game. Priceless.
By my count we have as starters
3 seniors (Warmack, B. Jones, Williams)
5 or 6 juniors (depending on the list you go by)
and either one or two sophomores
So total that is 8 seniors, 7/8 juniors. and 5/6 sophomores and NO freshman. I think its fairly safe to say as long as CNS is our coach unless the freshman is Julio Jones/Cyrus Kouandjio talent AND in a area of need no freshman will start especially at the first of the season
This person did not get anything right about Alabama.
Sounds like he is looking at our 2nd and 3rd string dept chart. lol
Wouldn't go as far to say that. We do play a 3-4 plus we've got a right side to our offensive line.
He is just not realizing that he's counting our current starters' classes from last year. He needs to add one full year to each class now that the we're in a new school year. All of those juniors are actually now seniors, the sophomores are juniors, and the freshmen are sophomores.
do you have a link? I haven't been able to find it
nm, found it

I lost about 3 IQ points from reading that thread.
This youngster thinks it's gonna be a shoot out lol
"Strangely, this might end up being a bit of a shootout if we see the "New and Improved Denard' able to move the offense efficiently, and a Michigan defense that just cannot contain the Bama's power running game. If this comes to pass, I give Michigan the edge because of #16. "
"My feeling is that Michigan has very little to lose in this game and everything to gain, as long as we don't get humiliated -- A lose won't hurt our chances to win the Big10, and maybe even the NC. But, a win launches us right into the NC discussion, and more than likely Denard right to the top of the Heisman conversation. From then on out we're in the driver's seat."
I'm thinking he's looking at the A-Day roster, where our 2011 - 2012 classifications were likely still shown. For example, at the WR position, I suspect we would've had 2 sophs (Bell and Norwood) and the rest Frosh before the re-classifications to the 2012 - 2013 season.

He's been reading too many Auburn message boards.
