    Re: CFN: SEC Preview - Alabama vs. Georgia

    I hate to be the negative nelly but, logically I see this as being a loss for us. We could win, but I would put the odds 60/40 in favor of Georgia.

    Why?

    Georgia runs the spread offense very well - This has given us issues in the LSU and A&M game

    Our Style of Rush - The mush rush works well most of the time but in this case we need quick pressure on Murray or he will tear us apart.

    Georgia is talented in both the run and the pass

    Georgia is extremely talented on D

    Our receiver core is depleted.

    Our running back core is depleted.

    My best guess on this game is Georgia 24 Bama 16 and I HATE to say it. I hope I am wrong, God I hope I am wrong.

    Very interesting, and telling to me, that all I'm reading about is can our defense step up. I reckon we don't even have an offense.

    I think the game ends up being a defensive struggle. Turnovers may be the deciding factor. I beleive Murray will be more prone to pass and thus be more likely to make mistakes since I don't think they will be able to run on us. Whichever team can establish the run will win IMO.

    I think our backs are more physical and we have a better O-line which will allow us run the ball effectively enough to hit a few critcal 3rd down passes to keep drives alive. My guess is we win 17-10.

    Re: CFN: SEC Preview - Alabama vs. Georgia

    I was worried about this game Sunday morning, now not so much.

    I think the difference is going to be the fact our boys have been in MANY big games the last five years. Since losing to Utah to endd 2008 - a game that meant more to them - we are very good in pressure games. We seem to have more trouble when we aren't. I guess we could say aTm was an exception, but Murray is no Manziel. Recall that after three lightning quick drives, he only put nine points on us and we still had a shot to win. Plus, Richt has a habit of coming up lame in big games (2005 WVA, any time nearly against UF).
    I'll always look back as I walk away

    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain

    When is the last time Murry tore up a good defense?

    And it isn't like we have chopped liver for an offense, in fact our o-line against their front 7 might be the biggest advantage for us.

    Clarification: UGA is able to spread out the defense, not spread offense.

    Damn, should we even show up to the game ? Seems to me we should go ahead and forfeit based on how you think.

    Georgia's defense has given up 1,900 yards rushing this season. Eddie Lacy and TJ Yeldon are the best tandem of backs that they will see all year. Not to mention the Tide's offensive line is extremely talented. I'd argue that Amari Cooper is the best receiver for either team, too. Remember that Georgia has lost two of their better receivers this year as well in Michael Bennett and Marlon Brown.

    We've played a tougher schedule that UGA and have a better scoring offense and scoring defense than they do. Where are you getting your info?

    That's what I'm saying. People are reaching for excuses for Bama to lose.

    I see you fixed your classification of their offense in another post. I do ask, though - when did LSU hurt us with the spread offense?

    Our Style of Rush - The mush rush works well most of the time but in this case we need quick pressure on Murray or he will tear us apart.
    Bama uses the mush rush on mobile QBs. Murray isn't Johnny Football. He's mobile enough but won't require the mush rush.

    Georgia is extremely talented on D
    Talent without discipline and unity doesn't equal greatness.

    Our receiver core is depleted.
    Our running back core is depleted.
    Neither is 100%, but neither is depleted, either.

    My best guess on this game is Georgia 24 Bama 16 and I HATE to say it. I hope I am wrong, God I hope I am wrong.
    With all of your points, you think Bama only gives up 24 and is fortunate enough to score 16? Wouldn't have expected that.
