    We are better positioned than last year. Last year, the DBs were essentially green and our offensive identity was confused. We developed OL problems along the way. This year, the DBs are more seasoned, the OL should be more solid. The only real question are the LBs, where there's plenty of talent. Best of all, I feel much, much better with this coaching staff. Only a true worrier could be more worried than last year...

    I'm with you there. After '70 and heading into '71, I had great concern post 6-5-1. '71 was a pivotal year in light of the awesome run it ushered in for us. However, in the offseason leading into fall camp, the wishbone was still under wraps for most of us and had no clue as to what was about to be unleashed. Due to the shellshock that '70 provided for me and the first game of '71 at USCw gave me the heebie jeebies, more than ever before.

    I'm optimistic that cleaning house and getting rid of the inexperienced coaches will benefit the team tremendously.

    Doubt? No way. A Bama team with something to prove and get revenge is a very tough team to beat. This may very well be our best ever. I totally expect #18 this year.

    Most of the 'way-too-early' polls have us ranked number one ...

    not even close. I felt way worse going into last season. Going into 2018 on defense we had to replace 2 DL starters (and a top reserve), both ILB starters (and the most experienced reserve - this worried me the most, since Sabans first season we had always had at least one returning ILB as an understudy who would then have the experience to be the playcaller the next year), and the 6 DB starters from the dime package. Basically from the nickel package that we run the most frequently we only returned Davis and Jennings. 2018 was the least experienced defense we've had in a long, long time.

    Kids - sometimes they say silly things.

    Alabama wins #18 this year and Tua gets the Heisman that he should have won last year.

    I felt much worse in 2010 thinking about all of the teams that were off the week before they played us. This time, I hope our guys are motivated for revenge!

    I seriously think, barring injury, we will slaughter everybody and go undefeated. If we stay healthy, I like our team MUCH better than all the others. Georgia will be very good and so will Clemson, but tell me: would you switch teams with either? I wouldn't.

    Plus, Saban has a mad on.
