As some of you know I have been watching almost every Bama game for years now since Saban arrived. They have gone through some interesting changes in personnel and perception over the years
Its always been about the defense but there was a time where if a QB got his zone reads down it got ugly in a hurry for Bama. Auburn got two SEC titles with the spread. There was always talk about how Saban was changing his recruiting to adapt to it
And he did. When you get first pick for 25 players every year it can accelerate the process. He recruited two all pro defensive lines to stay fresh and recruited the rest of the D to be big and fast and nasty in space. He beat the spread while not exposing the belly of his D.
He has lost two of the last three titles to Elliot and Ohio State and the transcendent Watson at Clemson. But as we? found out and are seeing again this year, mere mortals on offense have no shot regardless of scheme.
Recently Bama is hearing it on offense in particular the QB. Nowhere near as bad as us but when you're picking flaws on the best around you have to look.
Non offensive touchdowns complete the play book there
What the fuck am I talking about? Well, watching the game we have a defense that is strong enough up the middle to stop the run and fast enough to stop the spread. A Rosen is not an issue. Even in our epic ass kicking by ASU we gave up 13 points. Most would agree our defense is championship level.
The only team to have more punt returns that us (Pettis) is Bama with 9. We score on defense. If we were on CBS 4 times a year people would talk about the Husky D.
Obviously we have offensive issues. But they can be fixed. I think we will have a strong D because we are deep and recruit and develop well on that side of the ball.
We will win the league this year with a retarded offense. But to win it all we need our Billy Joe to go with our great running backs. Mario Bailey and Orlando McKay are welcome too
