I think Lacy is going to have a field day, that will setup playaction down the field. On the flip side, Denard has speed for sure and will make some plays, but he's also prone to turning the ball over, throwing the ball into coverage, etc.. while I don't expect a blowout, something like 31-14 feels about right.

I disagree here too.. Saban used to coach at MSU and absolutely hates Michigan.. while I'm sure he'll play a couple strings, it wouldn't surprise me to see him keep the pedal on the floor just because of his despise for UM when he was a Spartan
Don't be shocked...don't believe the hype Alabama fans never think about losing, because that's just the Alabama haters talking garbage.
I'm not scared to say Alabama wins by 40 or will lose by 40, and Alabama football is nearly the one thing that makes me think life's worth living for.
Lacy likes to spin as he gets tackled, easy to game plan against because he nearly stops. Good coaches well pick that up, and they haven't had to worry about Lacy like they game planned for Ingram, Richardson since Lacy has been with Alabama. He will now get the attention Ingram and Richardson got. You will see!!!
Personally i think Fowler will be the better RB between them two he is a breast at 6'1 242lbs. He has Lacy by a 22lbs but he is the power house down hill RB. You think you seen Richardson carry players on his back wait to you see Fowler this season.
The name to remember is Dee Hart, this is Alabama's fulture RB star.
I'm hoping Saban will go to passing the ball more with his new OC, with McCarron under center. This youngman could win a heisman and will play in the NFL on Sundays.
Not sure how close you keep up with Alabama but Saban will and has since he has been at Alabama played his 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th stringers up to his 1st #3 games to find the 1st stringers to play the season. Not every position but rightly so, he does this without failure every year.
Plus when he gets a good lead he pulls his starters, even if it's the 3rd quarter...the garbage drives me crazy. Damn it.
Pulling starters is rare amongst coaches only a few will let up running the score threw the roof. I guess one could say i hate Saban but damn he deserves repsect for not running up the score on my team.
Bear was the same way, it's funny how Saban has coached the same way like that. Along with filling their fingers with NC rings.
The reason i believe he does this is because he recruits the best talent in college football, and he most likely promise's them 3* 4* 5* players a chance to make his starting line up, so they will play at Alabama.
Now that was the kind of comment that will probably get a response to Alabama buys players. That again is the haters.
Alabama's depth is unbelieveable...
If you believe the sun is coming up tommorow you have got to believe Saban does not run the score up on any team. Although i think he could push that envolope, with enough caffeine on game day against Meyers, are Miles.
The Iron Bowl is a total different story, you would have to be from Alabama to understand how much both teams love to crush each other. It's expected from the fans that Saban beats the garbage out of Auburn, and Chizik is expected to do the same to Alabama.
If Saban lost to Auburn year after year after year he would be replaced at Alabama...it's all about the Iron Bowl trophy...in this State.
Look for a close game...national T.V spot light at night on ABC.
Michigan leads the series 2-1-0. They will be ready to battle.
If things does get out of hand nobody can blame the SEC officials because they will be coming out the BIG 12 for this game.
Close game my opinion.
