Every team loses players Michigan lost what 2-3 less than the Tide and if you include the Michigan Injuries and Suspensions they are even. Toussaint and Clark should be out otherwise Hoke's word means nothing (drunk driving and home invasion?)
You really think Alabama hasn't faced any QB with speed or who can run? Look at the SEC QB's.
Did you see what VT did to Denard Robinson, now imagine every Defensive position filled with 4-5 star players and Saban and Coaches have had the entire year to prepare for you...
Seriously, the Defense had significant playtime with all the blowouts last year and I'm pretty sure 1/2 the "new" players are 5 star recruits. They are loaded.
On the offensive side, they return an Offensive line that smoked LSU in the championship game. Michigan is replacing almost all of their DL, where do you see the advantage.
Receivers- once again all 4*** star recruits, if I remember correctly 75% of them are TOP 75 recruits
Running Backs- Lacy, Fowler, Yeldon is a 5 star stud, many forget that Dee Hart is another 5 star recruit.
I could go on but everyone says "they'll have problems" and "they lost too much" etc. but the numbers/stats don't back that up vs. the same Michigan losses/talent level.
I don't have a college team and I'm into College Football for the money. Yes, any team can be beat on Saturday but after many hours of research lets be a little bit more specific than a hunch.
