    I highly doubt saban cares what a magazine says…just BA over exaggerating again about something that really isn’t news worthy

    I do think Saban cares about Pollack said right next to him. I also think Saban cares about what AM said last week. I'm sure he heard about it.

    It doesn't matter though. Alabama is not on our schedule. If somehow Alabama goes undefeated we will see them again. They could lose to Texas and run the table as well.

    Regardless, they are a really good team. I just think our defense will be much better this year. Nolan Smith was injured for half the season and not available. Carter was not available and when available he was up and down. Ringo had a bad year imo for whatever reason (still don't understand what happened as we were expecting him to get better not worse from year before). So those were the big losses and I rewatched the OSU game and Stackhouse played better than Carter. Ringo was getting abused, I think Everett or Greene will be a big upgrade. Reason is Ringo is not a natural at tracking the ball and he can get turned around by top wrs. I think we will be better with Everett and Greene. Also, as much as I like Chris Smith, Bullard back there should be an upgrade. Lassiter, Starks, Pop and Mondon should be better this year with experience under their belt and Sorey is coming on finally. Jalon Walker and Mykel will be beast mode this year. I also expect big things from Big B and JJ.

    Not sure how anyone scores on us this year honestly.

    So back to Saban. IF they can beat LSU then maybe we will play again. I don't think it will matter as we should be better on offense and defense this year. Better this year. It won't matter. If Saban loses to Texas then we have a chance to put him away which would be great.

    Lol..not a chance in hell, does Bama go undefeated, much less make the SECCG....IMO. In fact, Texas has a better chance of doing that, than Bama...and they aren't even in the SEC....yet. I "WISH", I could find somebody to bet some "real" money on that. I'm going to Vegas pretty soon...I'll check. Bet they do. Lol

  • BigDawg888BigDawg888 Posts: 1,224 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I hope you are right because a ton of don't underestimate Bama articles are being written right now and it is more than annoying. I think 3 years in a row will hopefully squash this stuff. LSU looks better with what they are bringing back but not sure they have the depth. Alabama's 'greatest class' may be what the pundits are predicting. Still ticked about Haynes but I understand a son not wanting to be in the shadow of their father I just wish he hadn't gone to Bama.

    I am not worried about Bama. I am more concerned about Auburn on the plains being better than what we expected and a determined and awnry South Carolina. 75 days away.

  • BigDawg61BigDawg61 Posts: 1,971 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Yep...you hit the nail(s) square on the head. Particularly at the end of your post. I too, think South Carolina is poised for a Big Year. Similar to Tennessee's year in 2022.

    Sportswriters have been propping Bama up for decades, if you think back. Granted, the distance between great Bama Teams is a lot narrower than most. But, during their dry spells...the media kept them in the conversation. Kinda like they've been doing for USC and Texas A&M....among others.

    Now...for the 3-peat...they're holding UGA's possible accomplishment up to a 1930's so-called 3-peat winner...."Minnesota". That's a "Joke" of monumental proportions...and nobody is reporting on it. Minnesota didn't win crap.

    They were "Awarded" the Championship...based on an Illinois Math Professor's formula...again...and again. Are...you...kidding me?. Lol. And we thought the "Computer generated polls" of the '90's and early 2000's were FUBAR!? I think they played the likes of "The University of Chicago".

    And, I haven't heard the first "News" story on "how the 1934, '35 & '36 National Champions were selected. I find that interesting. If it was Bama on the cusp of a 3-peat...do you think you hear anything about Minnesota's feat almost 90 years ago? If you did somehow get that story...they'd be ripping that era apart and disavowing any Championship not won on the field. Lmao

    Champion my arse!!! Lol

  • BigDawg888BigDawg888 Posts: 1,224 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I agree whole heartedly. The Minnesota championships were before the AP poll except the last one. The landscape was obviously different.

    The teams who were the greatest in the modern era were the Oklahoma teams in the 70s, Miami in the 80s, the Nebraska teams in the 90s, and Bama in the 00s and recently.

    If we are somehow able to do this thing we would have to be considered the greatest 3 year stretch since Yale in the 19th century (now we are really going back). Also, that Yale team played in a time where there were so few teams at all.

    Anyways, we are in heady times for sure. Let's just enjoy it and if someone knocks us off it's ok we can try again next year as Kirby has built this thing to last.

    @BigDawg888 ...FYI. I was going to just copy an excerpt of this Wikipedia article on the 1934 Football season. Note that Bama had 3 All Americans on a 13 man AA Team and Minnesota had 3. That's 6 players off of 2 teams, to represent the the best 13 College Football Players in the whole Country....if you buy that BS. Lol...they were lickin' them some Alabama and Yankee tail...a loooonggg time ago. Lol

    Thought you might find this interesting. I never knew...and i thought i knew something. Lol. The last several years, has me looking a lot closer at things and asking more questions about things I assumed or took for granted. I don't take anything at face-value anymore, when it comes to what I read in a newspaper or online article...or, even a text book....I'm reexamining almost everything i thought i knew...going all the way back to my childhood.

    [[[[[> Once again, University of Illinois Professor Frank Dickinson's math system selected a Big Ten team as national champion, the undefeated Minnesota Golden GophersWilliam Boand and Professor Edward Earl Litkenhous also selected Minnesota at the end of the season. The conference, however, still had a bar against its members playing in the postseason, so Minnesota did not play in any of the bowl games. The undefeated and eventual Rose Bowl champion Alabama Crimson Tide was selected as national champion by the other contemporary math system selectors, Dick Dunkel, Paul Williamson and Deke Houlgate.[1] <]]]]]

    They were barred from postseason play by their own Conference (The Big10)...and, did NOT play in a bowl game, in 1934. YET...They were still selected NC over an undefeated Alabama Team that won the Rose Bowl.

    Hmmm...Yankees over Southern Teams, when possible...Bama over everybody else, if not. I see how it works. Lol

    Bama has had an unbelievable championship run over the last 15 years that's probably unlike any other program in history and I have much respect for their dominance but who, besides me, is tired of being compared to Bama? They won back-to-back championships and so did we. They are the reason we don't have a third championship under Coach Smart and we are the reason they don't have a seventh under Coach Saban. They recruit extremely well and so do we and they will be among the top programs in the country every year for the foreseeable future, and so will we.

  • GtheGreekGtheGreek Posts: 702 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    BigDawg, I'm right with your observation....every pundit has the mountain whogies putting the DAWGS to the test at Neyland....I'm more concerned with the early game against Rattler and the Game ****....The War **** Eagles, not so much.

  • reddawg1reddawg1 Posts: 3,316 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I don't think BAMA survives LSU. From what I saw in the SECC game, LSU is way more explosive than BAMA will be with a newish QB. The main thing holding LSU back over the years until Joe B was their lack of scoring quickly, it was alwys about the run and defense, not anymore.

  • BigDawg888BigDawg888 Posts: 1,224 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    We don't play them so all of this is a bit premature. We can start thinking about them if they make it through their schedule this year. Based off of last year and having 5 close games 2 which they lost I'm not sold they will even be in the SECCG. We need to TCB ourselves first. December is not in my thinking yet. I just want to make it to fall camp. I am more concerned about when Smael Mondon and Branson Robinson will be healthy and available and who is going to win the QB job this year.
