    This is definitely not how either Alabama or ND are typically set up.

    For historical reference, we weren't supposed to be able to score against LSU in January (in Louisiana!) and we did. Texas had some kind of otherworldly run defense in 2009, and we had 2 100-yard rushers. Miami was supposed to shut us down in 1992, and we ran pretty good on them. All the way back to Penn State in 1979 (1978 season) with Matt Millen and Bruce Clark on the DL and allowing less than 60 yards rushing per game, and that came out OK too.

    It may turn out differently in January. ND is obviously doing something right. We will
    see. ND has a great coaching staff and they will be ready to play, but I would not bet against our staff with this much prep time.

    Should be a heck of a game.
    You can't run when you have 8 & 9 people in the box. You have to loosen the D up.

    Only an idiot would say or believe something so stupid. I don't think your an idiot so why post such ridiculous non-sense?

    Really? in a Conference that doesn't RUSH and leads the nation in passing year in and and year out? What's Rush Defense in the Big 12?

    Wait you skipped from 2009 to 1992 again? What was going on in that 17 years?

    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?

    How dare you attempt to talk about the current ERA of Football. Were you not here a few weeks ago when some of these guys lost their minds that I would consider the 14 Year BCS time span as the current ERA in Football? ...sigh...

    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.

    I'm VERY familiar with ND's defensive scheme. The issue that you're not understanding is ND will be The Best Front 7 y'all will have played all year, save possibly LSU. I really like Kevin Minter, & rightfully so, but he's no Manti. LSU has better DEs, but ND is better @ DT. If Michael Brockers came back instead of going pro, I would easily change that statement as they would have atleast 3 1st rounders on the DL, and no worse than a mid 2nd rounder in Logan.

    I DON'T! That's the difference!
