Bama 893-317-44 72.9% On the field
25 SEC CHAMPIONSHIPS
We can not turn the ball over at all.
No3 & outs it's ok to have to punt but No 3 & outs.
I don't think all of a sudden we get a pass rush but I bet we see a LB with a pick & at least 2 more from DB's.
If we take a similar offensive plan to the one on API it may work fine.
GA will set a record for PF penaltitied trying to get in our heads.
Finally we did not get blown out by aTm except for Q1, we could have won that game.
Alabama wants this game bad soooooo...
AJ and the Bama Seniors take control early.
This years defense is still very good though, only giving up 9 points a game, take away the unique situation of defending A&M and their dual threat QB and nobody has put up any big points on us.
Best o-line in the nation, AJ and Cooper are looking fresh again, we can score on them.
Just a little back and forth between Bama fans here, we all want the same thing, hope i didn't come off like a jerk earlier, i didn't mean it to come out that way.

The disparity gets even greater, particularly on defense,when you only consider the games against the two teams' five common opponents (Florida Atlantic, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, and Auburn).

No matter how you seem to look at this game statistically, on paper anyway, Bama has the edge. And all things considered, a score of around 28-14 looks reasonable. In my prediction (27-17), I nudged it a tad closer simply because I think both teams will come out playing it a bit closer to the vest due to what's at stake (a berth in the NCG). But, statistically anyway, all the trends are remarkably consistent, and decidedly in Bama's favor at around 28-14.
Just wait though... when the game's over with a final score of 49-3, I'll have to remember that that's why they play the game on the field instead of just gather together in a room full of calculators.
I feel it's going to be a great game with a late drive that seals the deal for the Dawgs.
This is the beginning of a new day.God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or or use it for good.What I do today is very important because Im exchanging a day of my life for it.When tommorow comes,this day will be gone forever. Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not loss - good, not evil. Success, not failure in order that I Shall not forget the price I paid for it.
I just don't see Georgia getting more than 10 on our defense unless Aaron Murray gets hot. No hot QB ... you lose to Alabama.
