    Weather for title game (rain/wind)

    I know a 10 day weather forecast is as believable as the barn saying they didn't buy Cam but, checking various weather sites online, the consensus is for a rainy & windy Monday night. I think this favors BAMA as we like to run the ball down your throat and ND will be a little tentative to stack the box for fear of our play action b/c one slip and it will be 7 for Cooper over the top. The rain will also help our D as a messy field will limit Golson's ability to run around and play sand lot ball. Thoughts?

    Re: Weather for title game (rain/wind)

    Really want to see this game on a dry field with good conditions. One never knows what way the ball will bounce, fly, glide, when the wind is blowing and the hands and arms are wet. Probably be best for us if it is warm and humid--I think our conditioning and acclimation to that might prove to be an advantage.

    Hope it is better than that field LSU/Penn St. had that one year. That was dangerous and pathetically embarassing. Think that venue went to turf after that.

    It did indeed.

    I saw my 1st ever Bama / Bowl / NCAA game there 2 years ago [our dismantling of Michigan State] and yes, they had switched to turf at the ol' Citrus Bowl.

    Incidentally, Rutgers and Va Tech played there amidst showers last night.

    I just arrived here yesterday [from Ottawa, Canada - where we'd been hit with 30 inches of snow w/in the last week!] but had no urge to go to the game.

    I mean, attending most any game not involving Bama would be a come-down now, what with my 1st ever game involving Bama, in a bowl game...

    Already got a couple of Roll Tide's in my first few hours here...

    Long range forecast here calls for warm temps, and possibility of showers....

    Youre right in that a 10-day forecast isn't that reliable. Still, as of this posting, Weather Channel calls for good temps, 20% chance of rain on Jan 7. A little breezy, but winds pretty consistent with the nine days leading up.

    I don't like a windy/rainy game either, but let's look on the bright side. At least the game is in Miami, Fl instead of South Bend, IN.

    If you ever watch the Marlins you will notice it rains majority of the day but only briefly. That is the reason they got a retractable roof.

    As long as Bama wins let it pour. We play very well in the rain.

    Because as we saw today in Pinstripe Bowl, NYC provides better conditions than the projected weather for Miami.
