I don't think anyone said that you hated him, it was more of a joke. It should be a great game, I know I'll be there. Hopefully, we can pull off an upset.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Of course, we are all biased homers it's just to what extent and that extent can be drastically different from one person to the next.
Bama's offense will be more explosive than ever this year. We averaged over 35 pts a game last year, gave up only 9 TDs all of last year - Clemson gave up 10 in its bowl game alone. But that was last year.
Which is fine. I'm just telling you, I know this team inside and out. We're loaded. We'll be better offensively as a unit this year than we were last year, and we're subtracting Trent Richardson.
D-Rob is a faster version of Jordan Jefferson. That's all. That's all he is. But again, I like the kid.
I gotta give it to you that Alabama's offense will be more explosive this year than ever. Mcarron with a year under his belt and a NC will have more confudence as a QB than any other in the country. He will be a great one. But Denard is a mismatch because of his dynamic speed and not to mention the improved accuracy last year and I am assumimg the improved accuracy this year. He is a legimate top 5 hesiman hopefull and will be motivated more than ever to go out there and proved to the world that he is in it to win it his last year of college. I still think Alabama wins but it will be a close one because of Denards playmaking abilities.

MIchigan faithful, that is a 55% passing completion %........not impressive.........15 INT........very high,,,,,,,,20 TD......low..........what else is there to say!!!!!!!!!
I think Alabama's D can handle those stats with very little trouble.......fast or no.
Heck, if 'Bama doesn't get it right the first time I'm sure they'll just get a second chance!
You conveniently left out that he also ran for over 1000 yds and an additional 16TDs, which would bring his total TDS to 36.
Also, Denard's stats for 2010.
182 291 2570 18 11
He completed 62.5% of his passes that year and rushed for 1700yds and another 14 TDS. The only point your post really has that is legit is that he throws too many INTS. The coaching staff and Denard are well aware of that and are putting a lot of time and emphasis on improving that this year.
As a long time Bama fan I have much respect for the Michigan program and tradition ...you guys have won more games than anyother division 1 team...I love it when you play good quality teams right from the start...it makes you a better team...playing weak teams early is like scrimmaging against your scout team...you really don't know where you stand but when you line up against a quality opponent and they look you right in the eye and give you their best shot...well in my view that is why we all love the game so much...this will be a great game and I think will be won/lost in the 4th quarter...this game will tell us if both teams are as good as we think they are...my prediction...there is going to be a lot of hard hats banging on one another, I love this old school match up...

As a Bama fan, I am super excited for this game! I like it when the blue blooded teams in college football have the opportunity to play each other.
I agree it is rare for a MNC team to repeat, and in '09, we couldn't pull it off going 10-3. But, don't forget what we did to MSU in the bowl game that "off" year when we had a month to prepare. We have a lot of guys on this years team that remember the disappointment of that year. Maybe that will help keep it from happening again. I can hope anyways.
I will say that our starting rb, Lacy, had a problem with fumbling early in his career. I am nervous that now that he is the guy, he will try too hard and have this creep back up into his game. I think it would take a couple of bad turnovers by Bama to allow Michigan to stay in it. Should that happen, and it's close going into the fourth quarter, I'll be a nervous wreck.
Win or lose, I'll be pulling for you the rest of the year.
Poor bastards getting off the bus in Tuscaloosa will probably feel like those dumped on Omaha Beach - Unknown Vol's fan
no way the team up north competes with bama dreaming once again
Coming from the guy whose fan base said they would go 11-1 last year and win the Rose Bowl and 12-0 this year?
If we lost the game, it certainly wouldn't be the biggest upset I've ever had to endure. Michigan is a legitimate Top 10 team.

Where was the fast QB in this game???
Way to bring out one game while Rich Rod was the coach, we could bring up our record against the SEC if you'd like. Michigan is a legit top 10-15 team next season, if we win, it won't be a HUGE upset. Let's not act like it's an NFL team vs. a high school team.
Good thing you had that box score from a game so recent.
Why are you even on our board? Seems like you are just trolling now.
Hopefully we start to model your team over the next few years. Bama will be a force for a long time. Power football (manball as Hoke calls it) and an extremely physical defense can rarely be stopped.
62% completions is good. His problem is where the ball goes when it's not completed...the other team's hands too many times. If he cuts down on interceptions and can learn to throw it away, it will help the whole team.
I absolutely agree with this. Been saying for 2 years that he needs to cut down on his INTs.
How is a game that occured 2 seasons before this game is going to be played even relevent? If that is relevent, then this must be also, enjoy.
xxmgobluexx............great game....bad guys win in OT on a missed extra point.
Your Qb then is your QB now is the importance.
Agreed, 3rd year starting QB is very important. Happy to have Denard back for his senior year.
Two expenienced QB's.......going at it.....Bama runs close to 50/50 run/pass depending on how the game progresses............Our QB, A.J. McCarron mostly throws & handsoff but can scramble in a pinch....going to be a great game............Bama Nation is already buzzing about getting tickets to Jerry Land.
I do wish you guys would bring your band.........need the pagentry.
Not trying to start anything but you can average under 165 yards a game passing and still throw for over 2000 yards. Its not a great defense to use for arguing that a guy is a good qb. This game should be like the other 3 games. Close and very exciting.
Sure but the original post i quoted the guy was acting like Denard can't make a throw. Passing for over 2000 yds and hitting 62% suggests otherwise.
