I just watched Bama just get by LSU. LSU is not a great team. Alabama's D was getting tired. Wait till they meet the Ducks. This is the year that the SEC loses. Maybe by 3 scores. Book it.
I hope thats the title game matchup and not nd...
We are coming for you Bama!
Yeah those defenses that can hold offenses to 51 points are definite NAtional Title contenders. Give me a break the PAC-10 plays no defense. Oregon will get killed but I am betting they don't even get there.
LSU wore Alabama out because they're probably the only team in the country that has the talent to go blow for blow with Bama. LSU has just as much talent on both sides of the ball as Alabama does.
Oregon doesn't, especially in the trenches. Oregon gets beat by 2 or 3 TDs if they played Bama.
Ducks/Bama is gonna be sick if they both run it
I think the Duckies will win it
LSU has a defense that will put 10 or 11 of it's starters in the NFL by the time they graduate same can be said for BAMA. Oregon has maybe 3 or 4 on defense.
As long as it's not ND, I'll be happy. Luckiest damn team on the planet.
Alabama would beat Oregon by 3 TD's. LSU had a bye week to get healthy, get rested and fix some things offensively for this game.
Oregon's defense is a sieve and soft, so is their special teams. Oregon is not physical on defense, horrible tackling and soft.
Bama does just what LSU did to Oregon last year, beat the crap out of them over the course of a game and bury the Ducks.
The Pac 12 plays no defense and sucks to be honest.
Oregon would not beat LSU or Georgia IMHO, and I think they struggle to beat Florida and Texas A&M as well, their defense is horrendous and soft.
USC is swiss cheese, they are awful on defense.
Alabama would do to Oregon what we did in the Rose Bowl. They have the talent on defense to disrupt the Duck's offense, and they would pound Oregon's defense without mercy.
We all saw what a big athletic defensive line does to Oregon's offense....
Ohio State, Auburn, and LSU have proven this before....
Alabama will simply shut down Oregon's interior run game; Oregon will have no choice but to attack the edge; Bama's defense is simply to good to fail to contain Oregon's RBs, Oregon will eventually have to throw; the results will be a disaster for Oregon....
Glad you are seeing the light on USC. NFL defensive coordinators don't always translate to college. Has there ever been a NAtional Champion who has given up 40 in a game much less 50. Peope fall in love with offense but good defense always wins.
Not sure how anybody could make a statement like this after seeing how Oregon has fared over the last few years against the creme of the crop in the SEC(Auburn and LSU). Nothing has changed. Ducks are too small and Bama has the same kind of speed as they do but a lot bigger and stronger with a bevy of future NFL draft picks on D. Offensively, Bama would just stuff it down Oregon's throat.
