WVU could have a decent offense this year, but defense is poor at best. Bama can attempt  < 5 passes and still win this game easily.

It will be interesting to see what our new offense looks like under Kiffin and how our QB rotation works.  How will the O-line look?  One big positive is that Alabama should improve throughout the season, though this team may start slow this year.

If I wasn't such a big Bammer I'd drive down the road a few miles and watch Auburn play Arkansas.  I know I'm going down for gameday anyway.  I may watch Bama on the replay

I won't be surprised to see Bama struggle a little early. Probably see both qb's get time and quite a few young guys getting their feet wet. That said, WV gets an ass whooping.

If Bama is cruising, Bama may not let up as quickly as we think.  There will be additional factors at work:

1.  Making a statement about his ability to beat the HUNH.
2.  Giving both Coker and Sims a chance to shine.
3.  Rumors of a large HUNH package for Sims are rampant, and Saban may let Sims go nuts with it, just to give future opponents additional nightmares.

JT is right, too many things to work out to take the foot off the gas early

I think the game may be a little closer than expected due to Saban fooling around with the QB situation.

I'd love to see a HUNH package from bama because I think if they ran it they'd be unstoppable, and I can definitely see curb stomping WVU for the last 2 reasons... but if you are trying to make a point that you have the HUNH well defended you'll need to prove it against a much better team than the current sad excuse that is WVU, so I don't see reason number 1 being a real reason to run up the score.
