Here's the thing : Georgia is the best team Bama has faced all season, and the most balanced. Bama has shown a weakness in the secondary to a passer who can exploit it, and Aaron Murray, the national leader in passing efficiency, would seem to qualify as a candidate to do that. If Murray shows up with his mind right - Georgia wins this game. If he shows up nervous and hesitant, Bama rolls. Its that simple.

Same goes for Bama, vice-versa. Exposing Georgia's weak secondary, if McCarron is on. Also, Bama is Georgia's most complete opponent they will face this season...by far.

A lot of these Bama players know how the pressure feels and they've also crumbled under it. Should be a good one.

Our secondary isn't our defenses weakness. In fact it's probably one of their strengths. Our weakness is vs. the run.

Well I've thought this would be the game of the year all year (except a couple of weeks after the UGA/USC blowout).  

Georgia IMO has an elite defense and offense, that are both somewhat inconsistent at times.

Bama's performance all year has been more consistent than Georgia's, including in our loss. And our schedule has us better prepared for this moment.

IMO this game comes down to the very thing that all of our close games come down to.  If we can establish tempo and move the chains offensively, allowing our defense to rest and make adjustments.

LSU and TAMU surprised us a bit with their balance for stretches,  Aggies in the first half (mostly 1st quarter) and LSU in the second half.   LSU suddenly found an aggressive and accurate passing attack, and the ability to protect Zach,  while also moving the ball on the ground, and Zach made some killer dimes on 3rd down to keep drives going.   The Aggies had the quadruple threat of the hurry up attack, quick passing with a great passer, rushing attack, and the scrambling QB....took a bit to figure out.  

During these stretches our offense was consistently going 3 and out, and giving the ball back.  In large because it seems our coaches tried to force balance down everyone's throat instead of just going with what works.   They've gotten away from establishing the run during those stretches.    Defenses were in large disguising selling out on the run, and fall back to defend the pass.

I'd say Coach Nuss needs to have his finger on the pulse of the game a bit better in those situations.


Our secondary doesn't scare me much.    They still don't really give up big plays, and are usually in position forcing tough throws.   Pass rush has to do more affecting accuracy and time in the pocket.  But, I think it's advantage Bama if Georgia looks at the last 2 games vs big time opponents and think they're going to come out and toss the ball around all game.   -

No. Texas AM is the best team, followed by LSU.

A few balls get thrown on bama and all of a sudden it's a weakness..

I'll admit, we can finally settle the petty argument of "best QB" by seeing them in the same game and that is what is making me smile

The running game is going to be the difference and I think we have a bit of an adge and with AJ taking care of the ball we win by 10
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

None of that matters.  Georgia plays a sloppy game and Bama is fundamentally sound.  27-13 Bama.

I really like Jarvis Jones, but I don't see 'Bama losing this game... I think UGA makes more mistakes and Bama pulls out a close one 28-21.

Good news that Bama is the best and most balanced team that UGA has faced too.

I don't pretend to know a whole hell of a lot these days, but I do think this will be a pretty close game.

I'm not sure what gives you the impression that we have a weak secondary. Pawwwlllll?

I have developed a lot of respect for UGA after their beating of Georgia Tech, but they still may not be the best team that Bama has played this year.  That was probably LSU, from which Bama barely escaped with a win.  However, I do see UGA with a chance against Bama, be it ever so slim.  The Bulldogs are well balanced, have two outstanding running backs, and a smart, excellent passer.  Bama is vulnerable to such balance.  Their secondary is suspect to quick, short passes.  UGA could exploit Bama in this regard.  Coaching, though, is rather suspect for UGA; they can't math the Saban crew.  It should be a better game than we originally expected; perhaps not a Bama execution.
