    Plumlee must be the fastest 4.61 on earth.

    I think we will see improvements on the D this Saturday....I would bet they felt at least a little embarrassed by the 31 Ole Miss put up. But look, when the game is in doubt, the defensive efficiency is still pretty good. It wasn't until after we were up 45-10 Saturday that things really spiraled, but how many 3rd stringers were in during garbage time.

    Bama is 9th in defensive efficiency, with an 85.9 rating....the only team above Alabama in overall efficiency is Ohio State. Comparing defensive efficiency, Oklahoma is 68.0.

    Overall defensive rankings are horrible, but that's because garbage time is included in them. Efficiency ratings take garbage time and down weight them significantly.

    I just have a healthy degree of skepticism about the efficiency stats because this was basically the same argument about the 2018 defense all season until they got blew up by UGA, Oklahoma, and Clemson in consecutive games to end the season. Admittedly, Alabama's D had their moments late against UGA but they generally tore us up. I don't think this defense can defend quality offensive opponents well enough to win a title right now. Texas A&M is the best offense we will have faced thus far but I don't think the real test is until LSU.

    The stat is legit. Over the years it has proven to be very reliable. But the stat is skewed when a team like Alabama is in play. Because Alabama scores so many points so quickly, much of the game shows as garbage time, even though both teams would still have in their starters. So, for most teams the stat is legit. For teams like Alabama - not so much.

    I'm looking back at prior years to get some context....and really the only outliers from the top 3 to 5 teams are when Auburn made it in 10 and 13...their defensive efficiencies were not top 5. Other than that...the following are overall efficiency rankings for national title game teams.

    2008 - 1. Florida 95.4, 2. Oklahoma 93.8
    2009 - 1. Alabama 89.3, 3. Texas 86.2.....Florida was #2
    2010 - 6. Oregon 87.2, 7. Auburn 84.0....Bama was #3
    2011 - 1. Alabama 92.5, 2. LSU 92.1....Okie State was #3
    2012 - 1. Alabama 95.4, 10. Notre Dame 77.8.....they didn't deserve to be there.
    2013 - 1. FSU 96.1, 10. Auburn 82.3....Bama was #2
    2014 - 1. Oregon 88.7, 3. Ohio State 87.5.....Bama was #4
    2015 - 1. Alabama 90.0, 2. Clemson 86.3
    2016 - 1. Alabama 93.5, 4. Clemson 87.1
    2017 - 1. Alabama 92.8, 2. Georgia 91.6
    2018 - 1. Alabama 96.9, 3. Clemson 90.8.....Georgia was #2

    I thought that was the case. We talent delta so many teams that it is hard to judge us until playing one of the 10-15 very best teams in the nation. We haven't lost to an unranked team since 2007. It is almost useless to use anything other than top end competition as a basis of analysis.

    If they watched the film of Bama and Ole Miss and I'm sure they did. If I were them he would be running alot as the guy from Ole Miss did. It certainly worked for them all day long.

    Speed as runner is important, but if the LBs and DBs read their keys, take the proper angles, and lock up when tackling, then the running QB can be contained. Part of the problem with playing man coverage, is the DB running with the WR with his back to the play. I do think the "mush rush" is the best way to play Mond.

    If they watched the film of ANY BAMA game and I'm sure they did. If I were them I would be running early too, because within the first 15 minutes they're going to have to throw the ball to catch up!!! RTR!!! on TideFans.com

    True. If 4.6 is accurate, it was too fast for Lee, for whom I felt sorry...

    That's a very good point and true. Only if a team could control every drive and keep it on the ground, would it work. IOW, no stops by us. I don't see that happening with the schedule as I see it...
