    Will the team have a hangover next Saturday?

    Didn't see a thread on this topic alone....

    An emotional win like this normally signals a sluggish game next week. What is everyone's opinion on how our team bounces back against A&M?

    I'm hoping a close game makes us focus and play with intensity. If we had blown out LSU we may have coasted in against the Aggies. Perhaps having the game play out the way it did will keep us on track.


    /I also have fears we are a really tired team and it's showing. Even playing with intensity we may not play great.

    If this was a team like Ole Miss we were playing, I could see a sluggish game. But there is hype against this game as well. This whole week, we will be hearing about Johnny Football against our secondary.

    Some of the defensive players were on twitter and they said they have to play better. They know it wasn't their best game.

    The thing I like about CNS is that he allows the players to enjoy the current victory, but at the same time he hones in on problems from previous games so that the team can be focused and ready for the next one.

    aTm has one of the better teams that I can remember. Certainly better than any the past 10 years. Our defense might be better suited for a dual threat quarterback than an NFL arm, we'll find out.

    This is going to be another huge game nationally and will get big ratings due to the interest from Big 12 fans.

    Doubt it! Nick Saban is at the helm.

    Re: Will the team have a hangover next Saturday?

    read this on ESPN

    With the way Zach Mettenbergerthrew the ball around Saturday, the coming weekend's Alabama-Texas A&M game just got a lot more interesting. Mettenberger registered a career-high 298 passing yards and a touchdown. Manziel has walked all over defenses this fall and he should be able to make some plays through the air on Alabama's secondary. He should be able to run around a little bit as well. Manziel struggled against Florida and LSU, but ran through Mississippi State over the weekend. He's growing each week and the Aggies offense is getting better and better. There are some holes in Alabama's defense that weren't there last season and Manziel has the ability to exploit them. Alabama should adjust through the week, but keeping up with Manziel will be a tall task for the Tide.

    This game was excactly what the doctor ordered. It was proven that Bama can be beaten. It also proved to this team they can overcome adversitiy if they have to. Best of both worlds. Big win and a wake up call all at once.

    While our guys will be tired, A&M will be playing its 10th game in a row. CNS knows how to defend QBs like JM. They will make plays but won't do enough to win.

    Cecil tweeted that we opened up as a 16 pt favorite over them.

    I think we'll have a good game of football this Saturday afternoon. TAMU has been close against UF and LSU, so they aren't exactly going to go quietly. I think we may have a physical hangover more than a mental hangover to be honest.

    This is one of the most well rested teams in the country. Most of our starters have only played between 60-70% of most games because they've been blowouts.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    Re: Will the team have a hangover next Saturday?

    I doubt we will hear it mentioned in the media, but LSU has the kind of offense that causes our defense to struggle. They are able to keep us in our base defense and quite frankly we are not as good in the base 3/4 as we are in the nickle. Another thing... It was our offense's struggles that allowed LSU to remain in the game and kept our defense out on the field far more than we are used to seeing.

    I am far more concerned about the nicks and bruises that our team has right now than any letdown or A&M's scheme.

    Coach Saban said in one of the postgame interviews that he was happy with the win but told the team they could go in two different directions. I can't remember exactly how he said it, but basically we could bask in the glory of the win and go down, or come back to practice Monday, ready to work, fix the problems and finish strong. I'm pretty sure we have the leaders on this team to make sure we finish strong. Krymsonman
