For the past couple years Alabama has been the king of college football. Nick Saban is the best coach and every year they get new superstars. Some people think Bama is unstoppable. This is false. The last two years that they have won the National Championship they have lost a game each year. The key to shredding the suffocating Tide defense is if you have a mobile quarterback. In 2011 they lost to LSU who had Jordan Jefferson at QB. In 2012 they lost to the Texas A&M Aggies who of course have Johnny Hotshot. Even Michigan with Denard Robinson scored a lot of points on them.
The truth is Saban and his trees are not perfect, in fact, they are far from it. I think that the reigning champs will make it to the National Title, but they will have one loss. Last year one of the only teams they struggled with was the Ole Miss Rebels. This year they had the best recruiting class in the country, and they have a dime at half back. I predict the Tide will slip up against the young guns of Mississippi. This is a bold statement but Ole Miss has had some impressive wins against Vanderbilt and Texas. Although anyone could smash their way through the disgrace of a Texas defense, they are still the Longhorns.
It is highly unlikely that this upset would take place but I have my reasons. I predicted that even with a loss Bama will make the BCS National Championship. I also believe they will loose that game. Yes the SEC reign of terror will end. The team that will ruin the Tide’s dream of a three peat is the Oregon Ducks. Right now I think they are hands down the best team in the nation. You need a running QB to beat Bama and the Ducks have Marcus Mariota. Mariota can fly but he has a cannon of an arm to expose Saban’s weak secondary. The tempo of the Ducks would effect Alabama also. They are the fastest offense in the nation and Bama’s big boys up front will be gassed after the first quarter.
