    Re: Have we Been a Better Road team Than Home team Under CNS?

    Kirby Smart said that it is easier for the defense to play on the road, because the crowd can disrupt their defensive play calling.

    I would assume that is enough of a factor to eliminate most of the home field advantage, if not give the team a slight edge on the road.

    In an interview last year, Barrett Jones said he preferred playing on the road, in a hostile environment.

    VERY classy thing to say.

    The game is either in Tuscaloosa or it isn't. If it isn't in Tuscaloosa it's a road game. Anything else is an attempt to manipulate the data.

    It's even... It is what it is. We won some as lose some. We have lost more at home lately though. This past season we were better on the road.

    He loses so Few games it's hard to say. Some of the losses at home seem like they hit the hardest, 2010 ScamBack, 2011 LSwho & bad calls, 2012 Deliverence boy.

    I do think they take an attitude on the road. Won't be to many teams doing the stare down like ND.

    I think we play pretty darn good wherever the game may be played lol.
    There's really too many outside factors to call this in my opinion.
    For example...we made an incredible come back to beat LSU in Baton Rouge then lost to A@M at home the next week.
    Looking at that one might say, "There's your proof".
    Truth be told the reason we didn't play well at home was because the LSU road game took so much out of us emotionally and physically.
    Had LSU beat us I think we would have come out blazing against the Aggies. Who knows?
    It's not just so cut and dried in my opinion, you have to look at all the factors.
