Let’s talk Bama-Texas

Kickoff is less than 20 minutes away and I’m picking Alabama to beat Texas 24-13. An Alabama victory would give the SEC it’s fourth straight national championship.

I’ll share a few thoughts as the game unfolds. I’ll be interested to read your take on the game .

Let’s start here. I just don’t think Texas is going to be able to block Alabama’s defensive front well enough to give quarterback Colt McCoy any room to operate. Am I wrong?

Bama may hold on and win this game, but they aren’t the better team. This could have been ugly with McCoy in there

Tony, Don’t you feel Coach Johnson needs to install more of a passing attack for next season? I just don’t see getting 12 yards/game passing as an effective strategy for winning many big-time games.

If you cant pound a team with their freshman backup in do you deserve to be champions.Guess what the score would be if Colt was playing.

Please don’t start that BS. The game would have been played differently by both teams. Maybe the TX line should have blocked better and McCoy wouldn’t have gotten his ass and shoulder knocked off.

*Texas offensive line allowed the Bama defense to knock the $hit out of McCoy, injuring his shoulder.

the fake punt to start the game screamed of fear on Saban’s part. Hey Tony, you said at the beginning of 08 or 07 season that Saban had earned already earned his 4 million. After watching his conservative play over and over, do you still believe he is worth 4 million a year.

Hey you guys, the Texas QB is great, just took a while to get in there, took a while to get a rhythm.
