You try and counter what I am saying , even later you agree with it partially. That is when the homer kicks in. Unlike me who easily calls out something about AU when they suck. Like Kevin Steeles D, Gus’s limited passing game , poor play calling etc. If Steele would have been hired I would have been the first to bitch. If the list of coaches that were interviewed matched what we heard from the press, I would have been the first to bitch. But I knew better. I guess that separates AU fans from Bama Fans. We call AU out all the time.


Welp, alright

This was a top 5 defense according to advanced stats, Bill Connelly's SP+. Sure shut the AU O down til garbage time.

Show me a Bama Defense that got lite up for over 40 points in the same year to two teams with at least 4 loses.

re: Alabama LB Chris Allen returning to school
You are so good at avoiding legitimate discussion.

Again, everything is about context. This Alabama defense, in the context of other Alabama defenses, was not that good. In the context of the 2020 football season, it was quite good.

Let me make this easier for you. Who are your top five P5 defenses for the 2020 season?

Also, I'm still waiting for your super secret and insider Zoom interview list. You said you'd reveal the dozen zoom meetings after a hire was made, and, to my knowledge, have yet to do so.

re: Alabama LB Chris Allen returning to school
So you agree the conversation that the 2020 Bama is the GOAT is a waste of space?

Ps, I have posted the list numerous times.with dates and time of interview.

No. I don't. Because we are talking about the entire team.

The 2011 defense gave up like 8 points a game but wouldn't do that in 2020. The game is too different now. Plus it's offense would not be able to keep up.

Legitimately none of the CFP participants had a good defense but Alabama's at least got to something you'd call passable considering the pressure their own offense put on teams. They locked up the outside receivers pretty well all year, mostly getting chewed up with interior passing due to mediocre linebacker and safety play. Once Barmore got healthy and Will Anderson figured it out on the job, they had a good pass rush to go with that lockdown perimeter CB play. Alabama forced you to pass over the middle of the field to win and a lot of college teams struggle with that area of the field.

I really underrated how the things Fields does well were kinda contained by Alabama's few strengths...and that was a big reason OSU looked kinda pedestrian. By the same token, Trask and his WR corp can dice you up with in-breaking routes over the middle of the field and mismatch problems when you get a nickel safety/corner on their best WR in the slot.

Back to your question about top P5 defenses:

2020 Final Scoring Defense Top 25


A lot of Big Ten teams but the Big Ten was poor this year and almost all of them played less than their 8 scheduled games...sometimes significantly less.

The only joke is those posters that deny that it was true. But we all know how that works.
