    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Texas A&M

    If we perform on offense, we win 34-17.
    If we perform on offense like we did most of the game in BR, we lose it 27-24.

    Sorry to be all Negatron but we have to get off the field on 3rd downs. I think we will BUT I'll admit I'm a little concerned. Roll Tide!!!

    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Texas A&M

    With all due respect to A &M I see them as being very similar to Arkansas two, three years ago. Everybody said this was Ar-Kansas' year. They are finally going to beat Bama. They have a QB that will give Alabama fits. I know A & M's QB is outstanding scrabbling with the football and that's not been the case with any of the Ar-Kansas QB's, but I don't see A & M as a power offense. They are more finesse. Also like Arky A & M's defense is very suspect.

    What concerns me more than anything about the game against A & M is we are a beat-up football team and we are coming off a very physical, emotional victory in Baton Rouge. Alabama will give A & M a healthy dose of "Open up and say ah." Our ground game will keep their offense off the field and Alabama wins 38 - 17.

    If anything maybe, you can see this as a tune-up for Oregon ;-) ... dare I say it? Sorry for looking *way* ahead but it does get me thinking.

    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Texas A&M

    I'll take Bama 37 Texas A&M 24. I think we are a tired and battered team right now, and ATM will put some points on the board. I think our balance on offense will allow us to outscore them. I hope I am wrong about our defense giving up this many, but it really wouldn't surprise me. Well, maybe Bama 31 Texas A&M 20. I can't really decide, so I'll leave them both up.

    Our average score: 38-9
    A&M's average score: 42-23

    Our average SEC score:38-10
    A&M's average SEC score: 38-19

    Our offenses look like they are pretty much statistically even. Our defense (no surprise) looks to be the difference.

    Expected score: 33-14, Alabama


    ETA:
    Common Opponents:
    Ole Miss - AL: 33-14 (@AL) vs. aTm: 30-27 (@OM)
    Arkansas - AL: 52-0 (@AR) vs. aTm: 58-10 (@aTm)
    LSU - AL: 21-17 (@LSU) vs. aTm: 19-24 (@aTm)
    MSU - AL: 38-7 (@AL) vs. aTm: 38-13 (@MSU)

    Average: AL: 36-10; aTm: 36-19

    Same story: Same offense; defense adv. to AL
    Are you a math major by chance???

    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Texas A&M

    Hopefully our offense returns and AJ throws with confidence. The last game could have shaken him some. I think he comes back to his old self. A&m will jump out to an early lead like they always do. We may be behind after the first quarter by a touchdown, but we'll go ahead at half and punish them the 2nd half.

    38-13 Good guys.

    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Texas A&M

    I have Bama winning this game 31-17 ish, could be a Bama blow-out if RS Fr. QB makes a bushel of mistakes. Having said that, those that are thinking 40-something to 7/10/13 need to take a close inspection of stats of common opponents to date.

    But I am probably the onlyl one that has watched every down of both teams this season. If A&M played Florida this weekend A&M would likely win. First game for a fish QB is very tough vs. a talented defense.

    I expect Jess's analysis will have this game somewhat close with Bama pulling away late.

    PS - I have Bama in the NC game vs. KSU
