Their AD said last week that it is still their intention to play Alabama as scheduled.

I like how Bama lost just as many players to the NFL and he picks them to win.

LSU, who actually just won, lost man equal amount of players to the NFL yet we’re “rebuilding”

Alabama lost some guys but Alabama didn't lose nearly the same experience and core as LSU did.

You lost both coordinators, one of which many believe was the man behind the offense.

LSU has never won the division in back to back years dating back to 1992.

There's plenty of reasons to pick against them.

Sounds reasonable. Saban, after all these years, still hasn’t learned how to manage his kickers. That is, perhaps, the most puzzling thing about his coaching.

Here's the truth which many Bama fans ignore. With a combo of early departures, recruiting failures and horrendous injuries at two key upfront defensive positions (defensive tackles and inside linebackers) we were nowhere near any sort of championship team last year.


Huh? Nobody is disagreeing or ignoring that Bama had issues on the defensive side of the ball. Probably the worst defense Bama fielded since 2007

The GOAT LSU team of all team still only managed to squeek out a win.

"Managed to squeek out a win".Absent the desperation, length of the field heave on bama's last offensive position, LSU would have won by double figures against the top ranked team on its home field. Whereas Joe Burrow lead LSU on 2, 75 yard, length of the field drives in the 4th quarter to ice the win. As Burrow put it best post game, " forget the score, it was a dominating win". As for Finebaum, sometimes 2 yrs ago, live on his tv show " the 3 NC's Alabama won were the best 3 days of my life". He is 100% Saban's pimp.

Bama fix one........If the NCAA doesn't make up a rule, fire them all.

Question for Bama fans ...You guys have a huge problem with one second don't you?

We are waiting for the "That's not fair rule."

Bama fix two: Touchdowns to opposing team jerseys do not go on to your side of the board. You need to petition the NCAA a little better for that one.

Heaven on earth. Bama, late game drive trailing by 6 points. Run up the middle the clock winding down and no time outs on the board. Tackle three yards short of a first down....Review with 2 seconds remaining ....Oh wait ..no review....game over ...

Will you spoiled children run back to the NCAA to make the next year's rule two seconds instead of three?

Besides Texas, what other decent regular season non-conference teams did “GOAT LSU” beat last year? It’s not like other every team in the SEC besides Bama is playing power 5 schools for every non-conference game. I’ll admit Duke was underwhelming, but if that’s the only team that agrees to play, it’s who you have to play.

Being ranked no. 1 at some point for 12 consecutive years is a record that will never be broken.


Not all that difficult when the voters start Alabama in the top 3 every year and then they don't generally play anyone with a pulse until November. High preseason ranking plus a back-loaded schedule make it pretty easy to get to #1 at some point every year. I'm not saying the program at Alabama the last decade+ hasn't been on of the best runs ever, but if Alabama played LSU/Auburn in say September or October every year, I don't think the streak would be this long.

I think the difference is honestly guys like Finebaum will trust Alabama to replace Tua more than they will LSU to replace Burrow. I think that's what it really comes down to. Because Alabama lost PLENTY of production and experience from that 2019 team.

re: Kiss Of Death! Finebaum picks Alabama in 2020
You can argue Alabama will be better or not, but Alabama returns significantly more than LSU does.

Running back, OL, defensive front 7 (especially when adding in Ray and Moses). Alabama returns 94% of rush yards, 74% of OL starts, ~50% of Tackles/TFL (not including Ray/Moses).

Now, will that mean anything? Not if the guys who played defense last year don't take a step forward. But Alabama wasn't nearly as decimated across the board as LSU was.

Law of averages versus the field. Bama has had a greater percentage of winning championships. It is like picking Secretariat back in the day.
