    Is this the most doubt you've felt headed into a season?

    Honestly, I am still stunned at the way the Championship game turned out. I never saw it coming, and doubt many others did either. We will have an explosive offense for sure, but what about the O-line and D-line? Do we have quality depth?

    Definitely not. I feel slightly less confident than last season but I still see only Georgia and Clemson as real threats. Maybe there will be a team like Ohio State that will step up.

    I feel very confident. Clemson was better prepared than Bama because they had been practicing for that game for a year and Bama was worn down by a tougher schedule. I fully expect the defense to be much better this year and the offense will be the best in the country. Injuries can change anything, but if our team stays healthy, enjoy the show.

    -The o-line is probably the biggest and strongest we have seen in a while

    - defense maybe worse or slightly better than last year. Idk

    I think we will go 12-0 and probably have to play a 1 loss UGA or Florida.

    Iím confident we return to the playoffs but I donít know if that translates to beating Clemson. But we maybe the only team that can.

    I still think we're going to win the West and have all our postseason goals still obtainable heading into Atlanta.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Absolutely not. In 2000, I had no clue what was going to happen. I was in an airport moving to London UK on the day we lost to UCLA after having gone all summer somewhat believing the hype that surrounded our high ranking. Otherwise, during all other seasons during what I call the Lost Seasons (all those between Stallings & Saban) I had no confidence in athletic leadership, players, or coaches.

    Amen...Melvinm --- you must be pretty young. Us oldtimers can remember seasons where we dreaded what we knew was coming. I'm probably more pumped than ever...ready to see what CNS has put together.

    The Clemson game last year was just one game not the entire season like some try to make it out to be 14-1 is pretty good in my book. Bad games happen to really goods teams every so often and unfortunately it was Bama's time for that to happen; if you really dig deep into that night nothing went right for the Tide and it was bad all around from coaching on down. I think the team this season will use that game as motivation. The offense will be as good if not better than last season, and as long as the injury bug does not hit the defense real hard the team will be fine there as well. Bama has depth on defense but in places it is young unproven depth at this time. The team should be unbeaten headed into Auburn in my opinion this season, and we will have to beat them at there place which will be a tough task it always is. So at that point in the season the team should have the SEC title and National Title still out there for the taking.

    I think the Clemson game was an aberration.

    At first I felt we were straight-up beat, with the ominous possibility that "the torch was passed" and Alabama was in decline. But I feel better about the loss, they had an easy schedule and spent the whole year preparing for us, we had indifferent coaching and especially playcalling/adjustments etc. I think we are in great shape heading into A-Day, with a dozen blue-chips still to get to campus. The only true area of concern is ILB, and we are shaping up to be great just about everywhere else.

    No: I feel good, as good as last year, and that is taking into account the drubbing we got in the last game.
