2020 Bama vs 2019 LSU position by position comparison
The stat comparison between these teams is eerily close. They both beat a plethora of top teams as well. Clearly these are two of the best teams in CFB history, it's really cool to see these seasons happen in back to back years.

I thought it would be interesting to compare the starters/coaches for each and determine who is better (Not who had the better season - but who the better football player is. Important distinction). If my Bama depth chart is wrong, don't shoot me - I got it off the internet.

QB - Burrow vs Jones. Edge: LSU
RB - CEH vs Harris. Wash
WR1 - Smith vs Chase. Wash
WR2 - Metchie vs Jefferson. Edge: LSU
WR3 - Bolden vs Marshall. Edge: LSU
TE - Foristall vs Moss. Edge: LSU?
LT - Leatherwood vs Charles. Edge: Bama
LG - Brown vs Ingram/Magee. Edge: Bama
C - Dickerson vs Cushenberry. Edge: Bama
RG - Ekiyor vs Lewis. Edge: LSU
RT - Deculus vs Neal. Edge: Bama

Coach: Brady vs Sark. Wash. I considered giving Sark the edge because he was official OC but they're both brilliant offensive minds and had brilliant schemes. For the purposes of this thread, I would say the coaching of both units was top notch and no team had an advantage one way or the other.

Final tally: LSU 5, Bama 4. 3 toss-ups. Bama has the clear advantage on the OL. LSU has the skill position advantage (would be different if Waddle was healthy but I did not include him as he missed most of the year).

Defense:

DE - Barmore vs Lawrence. Edge: Bama
NT - Dale vs Shelvin. Edge: LSU
DE - Logan vs Ray. Edge: Bama?
OLB - Harris/Allen vs Queen/Chaisson. Edge: LSU for both
ILB - Moses/Anderson vs Phillips/Clark. Edge: Bama for both (Moses over Phillips and Anderson over Clark)
CB1 - Stingley vs Surtain. Wash
CB2 - Fulton vs Jobe. Edge: LSU
FS: Wright vs Delpit. Edge: LSU
SS: Battle vs Stevens. Edge: LSU?

Coach: Aranda over Golding

Final tally: Bama 4, LSU 7. 1 toss-up.

Final Summary
LSU slightly edges Bama in offense - 5 to 4 with 3 tossups.

LSU has a bigger advantage on defense - 7 to 4 with 1 toss up.

It should be noted that head coach is a big advantage to Bama. One that should be given more weight than a simply 1 to 0 tally and it can make up for the lead LSU has in my evaluations.

I also would like to point out I tried to be very objective in my evaluations. I am obviously much more familiar with LSU's personnel so if you think I am way off base in giving an edge to an LSU player - I may be. I wasn't trying to be, but I could have significantly underestimated how good a particular Bama player is simply because I don't watch them enough.

TL/DR: I think LSU has the talent advantage overall, but by the slimmest of margins and Saban can more than make up for that. I think these teams are a lot closer than most LSU fans would want to admit.

Remind me of which game Surtain got cooked for 200+ in during his career.


Notice you left off the HC comparison. Interesting.


I don't know why LSU fans feel the need to do this to themselves. Bama's 2020 accomplishments don't diminish LSU's 2019 accomplishments. Be secure in your own flash in the pan season and stop comparing it to the latest season in the dynasty you'll never compare to.

Why dont we get Waddle?

Also in that analysis Billingsly would be TE probs.

Reading not your strong suit, so I'll respond to your points with direct quotes from the OP

It's also important to note that Stingley got cooked by Smith. When Bama played a team with a Smith equivalent at WR (Chase), Diggs was on Chase and not Surtain.

Both are top 5ish picks, it's splitting hairs determining who the better football player is.

Like they are going to listen to something as logical as a stat comparison. They have deformed brains.

He missed most of the season, I don't really consider him a part of the historic 2020 Bama team since he didn't play in the biggest games.

But if you did have Waddle, I would consider him a wash against Jefferson. Which would even things up on offense.

Would you consider him better, worse, or even with Moss? Genuine question, I am not familiar with his game

A little homerish towards LSu with your choices which is TBE.

QB - Burrow vs Jones. Edge:this is a lot closer than Lsu fans will admit.. I'll give Burreaux an edge due to mobility
RB - CEH vs Harris. BAMA
WR1 - Smith vs Chase. Bama -and thats not a knock on Chase
WR2 - Waddle vs Jefferson. Edge: push or I like Waddle due to his versatility but Jefferson is fantastic
WR3 - Metchie vs Marshall. Edge: LSu - Marshall is a very underrated talent- injury and not as much time on field or production but I've always thought him to have as much raw talent as any of the receivers
TE - Foristall vs Moss. Edge: push
LT - Leatherwood vs Charles. Edge: Bama
LG - Brown vs Ingram/Magee. Edge: Bama
C - Dickerson vs Cushenberry. Edge: Bama
RG - Ekiyor vs Lewis. Edge: LSU
RT - Deculus vs Neal. Edge: Bama


Coach: HC Saban vs Oeauxno... landslide Bama

OC ; Brady vs Sark ; Sark is the choice
