    Exactly, we can't allow them to have as many snaps that LSU and A&M had. That was a huge factor. Our offense will be the winning factor in this game.

    Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    That is why I'm not picking Alabama. When we rush four, our pressure is ineffectual and the long developing routes open up. When we rush 5 or more, our DBs are on an island and somebody gets beat off the snap. The point drives in further when I really don't think we saw improvement in that area against WCU or Auburn...their teams were just so bad they couldn't exploit it. In fact, I saw these problems early in the season against Arkansas, Mizzou, and Tennessee but they couldn't play a complete game - offense, defense, special teams - to effectively exploit it.

    So now we play another team that has a defense good enough to keep us from running away early and maybe even shut us down pretty well...do I think the defense can stand on it's own without playing with a multiple score lead? I just have my doubts.

    This - we cannot afford back to back to back 3 & outs (or turnover) like we did with TAMU.

    They have a better seconday, but definitely not a better rush defense. If we can get running and STICK to the run, we can control the game.

    Playing two triple option teams is going to hurt your rushing statistics. Tennessee, South Carolina, and Kentucky had success rushing, Ole Miss and Florida did not. I lean towards throwing option attacks because they're so divergent from anything we do offensively. It is tough to gauge Georgia because they've had so many early season suspensions and the inevitable "getting up to speed" period once they all returned to the field. They're also incredibly emotionally driven.

    Our biggest advantage is probably the discipline factor: Georgia is a flat-out bad penalty team while Alabama is a minimal penalty yard team.

    Yes, I agree.
    But what do we do on defense?
    Do we change our alignment?
    Do we blitz more? Blitz less?
    Change our slants?
    Change anything at all?

    Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    Remember when we were seven point under dogs, on the road to that awesomely overly talented Matt Stafford led black out Georgia team in Athens.

    My God, how did we ever recover from that total beat down they gave us?

    Hopefully Coach Saban has improved enough that he can somehow figure out how to compete with a big game genius like Mark Richt.

    Otherwise, we just have to hope they play their worst game of the year and we play above our head.

    If they turn it over ten times, have fifteen holding penalties, and nine unsportsmanlike conduct penalties we might have a chance.

    Otherwise, I just hope we're able to limp back to Tuscaloosa with some semblance of pride because we are playing a FAR FAR superior
    team this Saturday.

    Give me a break. I'm done with this micro management of the best team in college football. We're gonna kick Georgia's ...!

    You guys have a great night.

    Fine, take out the last two option teams. They are still giving up 135 per game average. We are giving up only 77 rushing yards a game.

    Thanks for the stats, I didn't look that up. I was thinking talent wise, because in our games where we got burned on some passes.
