The talent gap has been narrowing for 3 years now.

This year our DBs jam the crap out of their wrs at the line of scrimmage. Our DL creates havoc in their backfield.

The snap count advantage at Kyle is real.

Yes. I do believe we beat Bama this year! The atmosphere that day will be like it was for the 85 sip game. I also predict us to be in CFPlayoff. Our OL will be a lot better than u think. Achane and Spiller will be the ncaa dynamic dual. Defense top 3 in SEC. Jimbo coach of the year in SEC. no more curse!!

The good news is that Bama is in a "rebuilding" year with the main focus being loss of Mac. Not sure Bama ever really has to rebuild that freaking machine but at least they have more unknowns than usual for the upcoming season. So I think the odds are more even than ever before. We also have many open questions though. So I give it the flip of a coin which has way better odds than any prior year since Johnny upset.

I had a conversation with a Bama fan this last week and man they are a sensitive bunch. If they don't hear that they will beat everyone by 3 touchdowns and win the natty, they get all defensive. I told him I thought we would play them close this year. I could see us beating them at Kyle. It might take them another year before they are as good on offense as last year so there might be a small window of opportunity for another SEC West team.

By the time we play them in game 6, I think our OL will be solid and hopefully the QB play will be pretty good. We have narrowed the talent gap at every position group except our WRs are not elite, but even that group has to be better than last year with one or two underclassman that will step up. I realize that Bama signed stellar class after stellar class, but Bama lost a lot and I don't think you just replace a Devonta Smith and Waddle with just any 5 stars. They also had coaching staff turnover as usual, but it may take more time than six games for them to get back to their usual selves.

Don't be condescending to me. When I played football, giving your opponent a forearm shiver to the head wasn't even a penalty.

You sound like my Vol relatives who told me there was no chance we could compete with LSU with Jimbo coaching us. I have studied football for a very long time. This is the year we take a big step when not many are expecting it.

Certainly possible, but they should have the advantage. One of the criticisms of Myles was inability to jam good WRs.

Johnny did pretty good as a freshman. And so did Winston.

Players don't stay freshmen after their freshmen seasons are over. King and Calzada are both sophomores.

I moved to Alabama last July. The Crimson Tide rules supreme up here in northern Alabama with their fan base. It would be so co to stroll through the office and show off.

Don't think that we are going undefeated this year - so next best thing is a one loss team.

Get out scored by bama at the in season game (not having to go to sec championship game)

get into the playoffs and beat them in a rematch game thus winning the national championship! (like bama did to lsu in 2011)

When we host Alabama on 10/9, Alabama will probably be a double-digit favorite, but I hope we play our hearts out. If we somehow upset Alabama and finish 11-1 or 12-0, we would win the SEC West. By beating Georgia or Florida in the SEC Championship Game, we would punch a ticket to the College Football Playoffs.

Realistically, I predict we will finish 10-2 with loses to Alabama and LSU. Besides Alabama, every game should be winnable, but LSU is still a very hostile environment. Since 2010, LSU has lost just 10 home games in the last 11 years, and half of those loses were to Alabama in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020. Mississippi State has two wins in Baton Rouge in 2014 and 2020. The only other three teams to win in Baton Rouge were Arkansas in 2015, Florida in 2016, and Troy in 2017. Before that game, we will likely be 10-1, and LSU will likely be 9-2. If that's the case, the season finale at Baton Rouge will decide 2nd place in the SEC West and potentially a NY6 bowl berth.

Bama coming off one of the best recruiting classes ever, hands down one of the best o-line hauls ever. I don't think the gap is really closing as you state. For the gap to narrow, we need to beat Bama at recruiting for about 3 years in a row. We've not been competitive with them on the field, don't see it changing this year.

Another thing, I was definitely not the biggest Mond fan, but we're unsettled at qb. I think we'll need to see a couple of games to see where we're at at that position. I expect they'll be brought along slowly, but man, I'm dreaming of some deep throws this year, stretch the field stuff.

OP may very well be right, the key question is in which sport?

There's still a pretty wide talent gap in football. It may be closing slightly only because our recruiting continues to improve yr over yr but Bama really does just reload.

They return nine starters on defense.
We will be trotting out a new QB and more importantly a new starter at all 5 OL positions .
I think it will be a 24-21 game and the home field should give us a shot.
Our defense should keep us in this game .

We're not beating Bama this year. The talent gap between our programs is still massive.

So every team in the nation except Clemson and maybe Ohio state has a talent gap with Bama. That being said Malzahn at Auburn beat them with lesser talent at home several times. I would say our talent level is on par with those Auburn teams. Our defense and run game keep us close, our special teams and coaching will have to win it for us. We will be about an 8 or 9 point under dog so i like our chances.

Better check the 2021 official roster....Haynes King listed as a Freshman assmunch.
