    Re: Of the 3 major undefeateds, which one would most likely beat Bama if played in NC

    We can beat any of the three, ND has more luck they may be the one.

    Oregon, for sure. Hypothetically speaking, we would have a month to prepare and would be much healthier than we were for the A&M game, but their offense's performance against our defense is still noteworthy. It is clear that, while still really good, our defense isn't a dominant against quality offensive opposition. And Oregon runs their offense to perfection with so many quick, talented guys out there. It would be very hard to stop. I would have (still maybe would...) really liked to see us play Oregon. It would be a very intriguing, entertaining game to watch. 50/50.

    Kansas State would be a worthy opponent too, but I think we could bottle up Klein. Besides him, they seem pretty similar to us, but I think we do it better than they do. And Notre Dame would almost certainly be beat, if not soundly beaten, by any of the other three.

    Tossup between KS and UO. Both have gladiator QB's......and you know what that means! (gulp).

    BTW - so happy that you will be dismantling the Dawgs instead of the reptiles in Atlanta...I'm going to REALLy enjoy that game! Don't worry - you'll be alright in that one...Murray doesn't hold a candle to J. Football.....your "D" will have him on his tush all day long!

    Honestly I'd be more worried about Aaron Murray than I would be Marcus Mariota. Optimus Klein is a worry too but his supporting cast is what would hurt them against us. I think we'd try to take the option away and make Mariota throw (I don't think he really can against a great defense). Murray and Klein are proven even against some good teams.

    Oregon IMO would be the worst matchup. They are like TAMU on roids. I like our chances with Gawja and the other two unbeatens. I know it is wishful thinking, but I just have a feeling that two of the three unbeaten will lay an egg down the road.

    Bama's defense "grew up" during the A&M game regarding fast-paced offense. See the later part of the game...

    Oregon! I think they are much better than when the Barn beat them a couple of years ago.

    I don't think ND would stand a chance. Their offense is just not good enough. #5 for ND can't beat us by himself.

    Kansas State is more a clone of Alabama. I think our D can stop our O and therefore I think our D would stop KSU's O with the understanding that Collin Klein is a good runner (much, much, much better than AJ), but he is more of a power runner and not as elusive as Manziel. When Manziel has the ball, he can drop back to pass on one side of the field and run zig zags and circles and triangles, maybe even squares or pentagons or octagons around you.

    If we played them (Oregon) we would need probably 16 players on defense: 4 D lineman; 6 linebackers; and 6 DB's.

    I'm not sure we learned enough by playing A & M to help us defeat Oregon. However, give Coach Saban three weeks to a month to prepare our players and we just may shut them down.

    Who are we going to recruit this year on D to help stop Manziel next year? We get him early in the season next year. I'll bet his backup can't simulate what he does on a football field.

    I don't think there is any question it's Oregon. What I don't understand is our fans shuttering in their boots over the thought of playing Oregon. I'm not taking anything away from Oregon. They are very, very impressive offensively. Chip Kelley has done an outstanding job taking that program to the next level. We had a bad game against A & M and they played nearly flawless. The SEC season is nothing short of a meat grinder. We stumped our toe and got beat, but I want a shot at Oregon. Saban has shown time and time again that when he has time to prepare for a game, the kind of time you get from the last regular season game to a bowl game, he's awfully difficult to beat. He is a master of preparation. We are going to need some help for it to happen, but I would love a shot at Oregon in the BCSCG.

    Oregon and by a mile, though I think Klein would give us some issues (just not enough to beat us).

    I honestly think we would beat ND by 10+ points.

    ND reminds me of 2005 Bama... Riding the coattails of the defense.

    Most likely beat to Bama= Oregon simply based on yesterdays performance, but I still think we would win.
