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

    To answer your question - Oregon. On a side note I would love to play Notre Dame for the National Championship.

    I can't believe the pessimism I'm seeing here. Would Oregon be a challenge? Sure. Would we have a month to prepare? Yes!

    I sure hope our team isn't reading this!

    The way Bama's D struggled yesterday with the hurry up offense solidified many's thoughts that Oregon would present a challenge. No doubting that.

    I get that, BUT one game doesn't equal a trend.

    All I'm seeing all over the board today is "we've got to rethink things" or "we need to go dual threat qb" etc.

    Every now and then a CNS coached team has a flat game.

    Remember he lost to UAB when he was at LSU. We remember the LaMonroe and Utah games, but these are few and far between.

    I'm just not sure it is time to panic in regards to the HUNH.

    Oregon...although they do tend to give up a lot of points.

    I respect your p.o.v. 230, but will also add about Murray - he can be 'spooked' pretty easily into throwing into coverage. That's why I think Bama's D will rule the day in that game.

    Getting back to the NC game....both KS and UO would be challenging opponents because of their QB's. I couldn't say which one would be the one you'd want to play.

    Oregon because we couldn't do situational substitution on defense no matter how long we had to prepare. They simply don't give you enough time.
    I do however think that we would beat them by controlling the ball.
    I think we would blow both Kansas State or Notre Dame out of the stadium.

    Yes but understand something, Oregon's qb does not run well.

    Oregon has 3 freshmen and a tight end playing on the d-line. I'd like our chances..

    I like our chances as well against Oregon..As long as we would commit to running the ball like we should have against The Aggies..I wouldn't like our chances if we used the same offensive game plan we ran against The Aggies..

    USC is going to beat ND. USC will be like angry bees for this game, and ND is good but is not ready for prime-time yet. They will go down.

    Oregon. They're a scoring machine.

    Of the three, I see ND as being the easiest team for Alabama to beat. They've been extremely lucky to be undefeated thus far. Six Michigan turnovers enabled ND to beat Michigan by 3 points. A very middling Pitt team takes ND to triple OT in South Bend.

    I agree with the earlier poster who noted we should become USCw fans for the rest of the regular season.

    Who would have thought we'd be cheering for Kiffin's team to win some big games...
