This was a great write up, and I can certainly see this game going this way, if you are right about out LB's on the edges. 

One person could say that we weren't prepared for that attack, and that we also weren't prepared for the Ga southern attack. If you really think about it, you can't really say that we had the time then to prepare for JJ, and we only had a week to prepare for Ga southern. 

You have to admit, that Nick Saban sees this weakness in our defense, and is spending every second trying to fix this. So let me ask you this... IF I am right, and we have an answer for the edges, and LSU doesn't have the success running the ball, what then?

It's more of the senario being compared than the teams themselves. The games we played against those teams are being compared because the outcomes were the same as well as the talk that followed both of those games. I do not think UGA circa 2003 is on the same level as Alabama is this year. Different teams.

As far as what ifs, I don't know. I think that's how the game will be played out. If LSU doesnt have success on the edges early then they probably lose. Problem is you don't get faster in 45 days. Saban can game plan but if youre not faster than your opponent, you simply just aren't faster, period. I've heard that Saban has had these guys on a diet, has had them conditioning more, so on and so forth. That simply doesn't come to you in 45 days. The best thing to ever happen to this LSU team was scheduling Oregon. They conditioned all summer for a very fast paced team and it paid dividends.

You can't coach speed... The last time I heard that was when we played Florida... I'm just sayin 

You could be completely right... I hope you are wrong... We will see in a few days.

The funny thing about this game is both LSU and Alabama fans are delusional that if their team wins, they are the better team.   THE EXACT SAME STATMENT (in red) APPLIES TO ALABAMA! 

The fact is that both teams are equal and this will likely be a another close game that does come down to a crucial turnover. 

Last time it was alabama that committed a crucial turnover with the interception at the 1 yard line, which just as easily could have been called a completion!   If that play is called a completion and alabama wins that game 13-6, then the perception of this game is completely different.  I just don't understand how every talking head idiot is totally ignoring that fact. 

Lucky plays have a bigger part in winning than fans and gamblers like to admit.  In a game so equally matched, this game will likely come down to the team that gets a lucky bounce or two.

Anyone who can't admit that before and after the game is over is either a douchebag homer or an idiot.

 So, you're saying that not acknowledging an unknown factor such as luck is what determines this and other games makes us douchebag, homer, idiots? That's funny...

I stick to the argument that Bama was the better team in that game, and out played LSU. They didn't win, and they are not the better team right now, but we were that night. IF the NC game is a complete mirror of the first game, I will say the same thing. 

This game is going to come down to who makes the better adjustments...

All kidding aside, your post is arguably the most accurrate I have ever read here.

Also, consider the people on this thread that are doing the most posting as they are by far two of the most disillusioned as I have seen in a while when it comes to rationality being blinded by loyalty...

As nicely as I can put it. I said I was biased and a homer, it was written in the original post.

Stupid mother guy stay the darn out of my thread. I don't bother people on the site, I like to talk about LSU. If you don't like what I have to say go darn yourself. Period.

I've spoken to some of the best handicappers in the business, four of them to be exact. All of them are on Bama to some capacity and this is why...they expect both teams having trouble running and prefer the Bama QB throwing over the LSU QB, also Bama star RB is the best player on the field and is a threat to score in every snap hes a part of.

On another note there's been a lot of talk about officiating as per usual. This is the "unseen driving force" behind wins and loses in big games, last year Oregon was ever so slightly shafted by the officials and LSU got that preferred treatment in the first game these two teams play. I sometimes hear some of the cappers I speak to that a big part of their handicapping is anticipating which team will "get calls", despite my monetary investments I honestly have come to not watch games based on this premise.

So the best handicappers in the business cap officiating. Get real. And please explain how LSU got preferential treatment over Oregon and then against Bama in Tuscaloosa.

Ultimatetailer- quit spouting bullshit or name these 4 world class cappers you are talking about.  Billy Walters called me and said none of that matters. LOL!!!  Yes please explain the preferential treatment LSU received in those games. And if this is the case, just bet LSU.
