    Since you feel that way PetermanUW, I'm assuming that you believe that Ole Miss played us at our weakest?

    Re: Thoughts from a Washington Fan

    In all honesty, the Huskies' best chance is that Bama players don't take Washington seriously.
    Bama lost to Utah (2009), Oklahoma (2014) and Ohio State (2015) based on that circumstance.
    When Bama players take the opponent seriously (or, God forbid are angry), the results are ugly (Mich State 2010 & 2015, LSU 2012, Notre Dame 2013).
    Washington is certainly capable of beating Alabama, but it really depends on how Alabama plays not how Washington does.

    Looks like all the Udub fans are getting suspended. Must have taken lessons from some of the LSU fans.

    The most objective observers of football are in Las Vegas. The consensus of the professionals is that Alabama wins by 15, and the total points by both teams is 54.

    That translates into the most objective, knowledgeable professionals on the planet predicting score of roughly 35-20.

    Now, those pros aren't always right. But to make a credible case for UDub winning without a bunch of help from Alabama, you have to identify where the pros got it wrong (and wrong to the tune of more than two touchdowns), and come us with a solid justification for feeling that way.

    Personally, I think Tidewater said it best when he said that UDub's best chance is Alabama not taking them seriously. I don't think that's real likely. But if it happens, it would be manifested by mental mistakes, blown pass coverages and blocking assignments, careless penalties, poor eye discipline leading to vulnerability to trick plays, and poor ball security.

    In other words, Alabama giving Washington a lot of help.

    I can tell you where they are getting it wrong. UW has an absolutely elite interior DL the only thing Alabama's seen that is close is their own DL last year with Robinson and Reed

    The only one who seems likely to be drafted high is Eldrenkamp, although Shelton did make all-conference, 2nd team. It'll be interesting to see how they hold up against our DL...
