Score with long time consuming drives. Run the ball effectively to open up passing game. Force Corral to beat us throwing and don’t allow him to run. Limit penalties. No turnovers for us and force 2-3 Ole Miss turno.

Tackle.
Don’t bite on the eye candy.
Make them earn the yards with precise passes.

Limit penalties.

No turnovers.
Receivers block downfield.
Receivers catch the football.

Solid punt returns.
No kickoff gaffes.
Good snaps.

Focus. Intensity. No team in the country is beating the Alabama that came out in the first quarter against Florida. Time to keep that intensity for an entire game.

We just need to control the clock, keep their D on the field as long as we can. Alabama defense needs to get their call in faster and so they can be set. We will be okay. Young needs to keep doing what he's doing so far tis season: be good QB. WRs gotta step their game up. We'll be fine.

I don’t think we have a chance, Kiffin almost won last year and this time he is coming to finish the job! They have the best QB, the best athletes and have played better. they Will probably score 70 on us! 🙄

It takes several things but I think forcing them to punt on their first possession is important since that would give our defense confidence and somewhat demoralize them because I'm sure they think they can score against anyone. Avoiding dumb penalties is important so no late hits (roughing the passer) or altercations resulting in unsportsmanlike conduct penalties.

Big game on the road for an untested team - how will they react? Bama offense maturing, no concerns there. It’s the defense! Will fans be screaming for adjustments in scheme while the coaches will be looking for execution of defensive play calling? Just hope the linebackers have a good game, defensive pass interference calls are nil, and the D tackles well. And if UM has a tight end we keep him under wraps.

Our inside linebackers have to fill their gaps, hit their assignments. If they are lost like they were against UF we will be in trouble.

LaBryan Ray will make the difference this weekend. Watch
He very well could …assuming we get our normal disruptive effort from W. Anderson on Saturday… it would be huge if one of our inside guys caught fire and had a big day getting after that qb. The more we speed things up for him the better off we are giving up the big play. Based on the rebels competition up to this point I really have no idea how good their defense and Oline are.

Force Ole Miss to drive the ball to score. Don't give up a bunch of big plays.
They go fast - real fast. Them having long drives will wear down any defense quickly.
Bama needs stops, something they haven’t done that well to this point. If they don’t get more than a few Saturday, well, not sure anyone on here will be any happier than they were last year.
Ole Miss hasn’t been tested, but it’s LK’s offense so you know what you’re getting. Defensively, I don’t think they can stop Bama but Bama absolutely cannot stop themselves with stupid penalties and bonehead plays from lack of focus.
