    I just worry about how enthusiastic the team is for playing Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. It could be another Sugar Bowl like Utah where the team is completely disinterested.

    Make no mistake, Alabama knows they're the best team in the country and should be playing for the national championship. It's going to be hard to get 'em up for Oklahoma in what is for all intents and purposes a meaningless game.

    Canes? The Miami Hurricanes? LOL. The Canes need a new head coach before they're going to challenge from much of anything in the ACC. Especially with us joining the league in July. The Miami Hurricanes will be the 4th or 5th best program in the ACC starting in the fall.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    Duke made it to an ACC title game before Miami could. That's all that needs to be said about an irrelevant program and all 40 of their fans that show up for the games.

    The U is nothing more than a novelty team at this point.

    As a person who lives in the RTP area, I don't think Duke even cared that much that they made the ACC title game. Basketball season had already started...

    I figured we'd be lucky to get by LSU....said it back earlier in the season. I believed that would be the game where a team actually had the talent to capitalize on our weaknesses. VT exposed the weaknesses in week 1... they just didn't have the talent to take advantage of them. Auburn and Oklahoma did.

    I've said it previously in this thread... I've never seen a group of CB's this bad at Alabama. Secondly, we have no pass rusher. Third, our offensive line just never reached the level of dominance. Kouandjio was exposed mightily against Auburn (Carl Lawson) and last night against Oklahoma. He can't handle speed rushers.

    Saban and Kirby Smart have to figure out how to defend the HUNH. Until they do, teams are going to keep throwing it at 'em. Saban runs a very complex defense, sometimes too complex. These HUNH offenses take advantage of it.

    Our defense relies on "packages". We have players on defense that are for certain roles in certain packages. The tempo of these HUNH offenses affects our ability to substitute for all these "specialty" packages.

    Also, it's a defense that relies heavily on checks at the LOS. This call comes in from the sidelines (Smart) after the offense has lined up, and is relayed in to C.J. Mosley and the safety quarterbacking the secondary. This was Sunseri, and losing him for the season killed our defenses ability to communicate effectively. We need less "specialty" packages, and start recruiting more players in the front 7 that are versatile enough to stay on the field without having to be substituted out.

    The rules are slanted towards favoring these HUNH offenses. It's not fair, but it's the way football is trending. It's not going away. Saban can't stop it by complaining about it.... the only way he's going to stop it is by taking a long look in the mirror and re-evaluating what's at the core of his defensive philosophy. He'll have to adapt. The great one's always do.

    I tip my cap to the Sooners. They flat out kicked our ass.

    Yeah he did. Inexplicably, Nuss refused to keep going with what was working. He stopped handing the ball to the best player in the stadium that had literally struck fear into the Sooner defenders. Our OC suddenly became the best coach Oklahoma had. I think he needs to go, and I think Cristobal needs to go. He's a terrible offensive line coach.
