    Re: What will it take for Bama to win another NC this year?

    A detailed article by Michael Casagrande in today's Birmingham News lays out what we have to do. The contrast in key performance stats between the first 8 games and the last 7 is stark.

    Kind of tough to read, but numbers have no allegiance to any team. Hard to refute.

    TL isn't some super man...he's good...real good...but he also had a "dreamlike" game against us too. Him and Ross combined with some disney plays that don't/won't happen every game.

    Tua staying healthy is our biggest issue/concern IMO. If we do what we should do it won't matter what anyone else does.

    I hope that Tua stays healthy and has worked on his reads. According to UGA fans, who mean nothing to me, Clemson provided a road map on how to beat us. I think Tua will be focused and learn from that especially if Sark has anything to do with it. Tua and Sark have this "history." I also think TL will experience somewhat of a sophomore slump. Let's see if he does or not. We probably wouldn't notice it with the lack of competition Clemson has in the schedule, but come the end of the season TL will have that target on his back. So will that receiver from Alabama that connected on so many plays with TL, whatever his name is.

    That said, and we need some luck, too. I think the guys will have the drive and determination. Can't imagine them not having it.

    Oh, and Brando has predicted Clemson to win it all again. LOL Man, he hates Bama.

    From the MC article linked above:

    The first three drives of the second half of that game ended at the Tiger 24-, 11- and 9-yard lines, respectively. The first was the botched fake field goal when it was clear confidence lacked in the kicking game down 31-16 with one missed extra point.
    I've made this point multiple times and in this thread: The lack of confidence in our kicking game put extra pressure on our RZ offense and against the better competition and especially against Clemson it raised its ugly head in the most obvious way.

    We score on those three drives against Clemson, who knows??? It's not that our offense was just terrible as some remember. We just couldn't cash in great drives with TDs.

    Yeah, we need a kicking game to be solid for a change in the worst kind of way. I hope we get some magic pixie dust from somewhere to take care of this issue.

    Seriously though, is the kid from Hoover coming in this season or what? I think that's where he was from.

    What will it take for Bama to win another NC this year?

    Something I hope we get back to this year is sending LBs and DBs on a blitz from time to time. We need that ball-hawking defense back.

    Decleating LT in the title game would do my soul good.

    For whatever reason, Bama doesn't win the NC when being #1 all season. Now, as #2 it is a different story so I'm looking forward to #18. Naturally, a whole bunch of luck, limited injuries to key players which means Tua has learned how to throw the ball away, and the coaches are reading from the same sheet of music er football script.

    Keeping injuries to a bare minimum and some good fortune—not luck—in JHS at the end of the regular season.

    As with any NC team, much luck is needed. Although good teams generate much of their own luck.

    It’s no secret when the difficulty began and a noticeable difference was apparent—the LSU game.

    Actually TL is as close to superman as they come as a QB...not just real good...generational...don't ask me...just look at what every NFL scout and coach and GM is saying...even other great NFL QB's are saying the same thing. This guy was only 18 last year. If he just moves forward at a very average rate and stays healthy, we and everyone else is in trouble. Look, I wish it were not so, but I aint going to be delusional and just deny what is crystal clear. And although i think we have the best WR core in the country and the 2nd best QB in the country...Clempson has 2 1st round picks at WR and probably a 1st round RB...If TL is healthy and maturing ...they will be hard to beat.
