Now someone has posted the Tennessee coaching job on Craigslist, good to see they get a sense of humor
Where were you from 1992 to 2009?
So easy to talk trash now with a little success eh? My how quick we forget.
Look this whole playing it low then slamming it home by making some of these silly statements like "Supposedly Bama wasn't going to score in Louisiana BUT WE DID) is pointless. I mean really? Are you making this stuff up?
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

The point is that Alabama has heard this and faced similar things before. Does the fact that a lot of teams ran out of the Wishbone in 1978 make Penn State's 54 YPG rushing (before the Sugar Bowl that year) more impressive or less? Bama ran for 208 that game, against a team with the Lombardi winner on the DL and Matt Millen.
Jacob, go back and read my post about ND wanting to sit in a 2-high safety look and control the run game with no more than 6-7 folks in the box. When the running game starts to become effective, and then we have 8-9 folks in the box, I think Alabama has shown what they are willing to do then. Like the play-action TD against GA.
But it all started with pounding the ball and forcing GA to commit more players to the run and put their CBs in single coverage. If we have much success against ND, that's pretty close to how it will happen as well, IMHO.
Dustin, per LSU's records you might not want to do a whole lot of talking about 1992-2009 either, and particularly before 2003.
A quick look at records and finishes will show you that LSU finished the season unranked in the AP and Coach's polls 7 times from 1992 - 2003. Maybe we should both just agree not to talk about that period.
