    Do you remember a time in the past when the O was ahead of the D?

    Would any of the wishbone years qualify?

    Maybe 1973.

    Yes to 2014. I was going to say 1989 until I saw the references to 2014.

    '73. Unbelievable offense, tepid defense -- culminating in the Sugar Bowl with repeated gashings by Wayne Bullock dive plays while the back 7 was too small and slow to do anything with Dave Casper.

    Definitely 2014, the Defense sort of got worse as the season went on, Sims, Yeldon, Henry, and Cooper had to carry the team.

    Nick Marshall threw for over 400 yards on that defense in BDS... Sims, Cooper, and Kiffin saved Kirby’s butt that game.

    Yes LSU and Arkansas were exceptions to the rule of that year, but we probably are a 9-10 win team without the offense playing at a high level that year.

    Yeah, I deleted it. I got my years mixed up. I would say 2014.

    In 2007 the offense was ahead of the defense all season. That team won by throwing the ball all over the place and the defense struggled to implement Saban's defensive plan due to it being a transitional year.

    Yep. I was a student then and it was miserable times.
