I watched a few Alabama games today: Ole Miss, LSU and Tennesse. I came away pretty confident that Washington can potentially upset them. Bama's offense is pretty bad at throwing the ball because Hurts is really ineffective with his mechanics and accuracy. UW can make Bama one dimensional, Washington has 3 elite 3-4 DL men and the best secondary in the country. Bama's defense is very agressive and can be had on routes that force them to switch (wheel routes, zone busters etc). Short quick passing game off of play action was money for Ole Miss early in the game. RPOS looked actually quite effective against Bama's defense because the safeties and LBs overcommit so much because they trust someone to make a play if they can't . Everyone's explosives plays came off play action which speaks to how agressive they play. Alabama sells out to stop the run but if you spread them out you can get 3-4 yards and the occassional 10 yard pop. Bama's defense reminds me of the Seahawks without an elite safety or corner. I like UW's chances in this game esp. given that Pete has 1 month to prepare. If Washington can stay ahead of the chains and convert on third down i can see them scoring 17-20 points. Washington's defense has NFL talent at every postition except for the buck postition, Psalms Wooching who can abused on outside runs and QB scrambles/reads which is concerning. Joe Mathis and Azeem Victor may be able to come back for Washington in this game and they are elite at what they do. I also saw Bama has had 2 OL men go down which could end up being the difference in the game. If Washington can stay away from TOs and convert on third down; they can win this game.

I tried to watch a game where Bama destroyed someone, a game that gave them trouble defensively and a game where they struggled offensively.

If Bama disrupts Browning on a consistent basis the game is probably over. I'm worried that Browning won't have enough time to throw the long bombs to Ross.

I'm petrified w/r/t containing Howard at TE, especially with Azeem out.

Huskies can't let Hurts run on us. He's not as good as a passer as Darnold at USC, but they are similar players (Darnold is going to be a very high draft pick)

I doubt Mathis will be back (Petersen already said it is unlikely). He was tearing it before the injury (5.5 sacks and a bunch of TFL). Not sure how Azeem is doing.

The problem with that logic is that Nick Saban also has 1 month to prepare.

Bruuuh, take the PAC12 glasses off...the team that beat you lost to us by 49. Don't confuse confidence with reality. You will have to WORK to beat us.

"Roll Tide"
And i was providing anyalsis on how that could happen... Take off your Bama glasses and actually engage in debate.

So I guess the OM game was the one where Alabama had defensive issues? The one where they scored 16 points in the fourth quarter when playing catch up. Also the same game where they scored a defensive TD. IOW, they scored half their points either by the defense or playing catch up. They had over 150 yards in the fourth quarter when Alabama had injuries in the secondary, and they were just throwing the ball in order to get back in the game.

No offense but your entire post looks like its posted in Huskie glasses. Your entire defense with be the first college in history to have 10 of 11 starters play in the NFL, really? I see very little analysis, just reasons why your team should be anointed the best team ever.

You are correct. We are not unbeatable, nor is any other team remaining in the playoff. You guys have had a great season, and I anticipate a good game. I also worry about our offense if/when Kiffypoo gets too cute. If we focus on executing what we do well, our offense should be able to move the ball and sustain drives. Our defense is aggressive and does provide opportunities for big plays, but you have to be quick about getting the throws away. The big problem that some teams have when they play us is the difference in physicality. Our guys just keep on coming and hitting hard every play. Most teams can't hold up for four quarters. We will see how your Huskies do come New Year's Eve. Good luck to you.

PetermanUW. you are a confident wash fan, and I can see some of your potential advantages for your team. Really, I too being a loyal bama fan through the years have concerns about Jalen hurts passing ability, teams attacking our corners. But, I have not seen any team yet beat Alabama. I also realize uscs qb is a lot better than browne. however, I don't remember usc's running backs, receivers, off linemen, def linemen doint anything to stop bama. their qb did not play defense, have time to make good passes downfield. I have also been concerned with the point spreads by vegas each week, and you know what they really know what they are doing. check the spreads of each game this year. we have bigger, stronger players at all positions, we have I am sure faster athletes at those same positions. we are 4 deep at rb. we are 4 deep at receiver. we have the butkus award foster middle linebacker. we have jonathan allen, we have at least 4 or 5 def players first round picks. just remember, we start slow, but, than don't blink your eyes, because that is a big, fast crimson tider flipping the field and the game. please stay in touch enjoy opponents banter. roll tide.

Missed this earlier. Where did you see Bama had 2 OL go down? Some context can be provided for that instead of you just reading 2 OL got injured.

So why did you not watch the Bama vs USC game, and then watch the UW vs USC game and come up with you comparison's. Give us your comparisons on how each team played a common opponent. Then we can have a discussion about strength and weakness of each team.

You Washington fans might need to check the website you are on right now. You are not on a Washington or PAC-12 site.

Yeah, I was taught to comport myself with humility when entering another's domain.

Guess some weren't...
