I've gone back and watched the tape and here's what I'm seeing:
A team you don't wanna piss off.
There are some mean dudes on this football team that REALLY like to hit. Whether it's Rod Woodson, the freshman from Olive Branch, who was a star on kickoff-coverage Saturday, or Rolo who went batshit crazy on a lineman for VT, or Roy Upchurch who just wanted to RUN OVER Tech's DBs, everybody on the team looked ready to kill.
And man...that kinda football makes me happy.
Y'know I watched the Memphis-Ole Miss game, and when the game was 17-7 at the end of the 3rd quarter, and Memphis had a 4th-and-inches, they lined up in the shotgun formation. It was dumb. They tried to get cute because they weren't as physical as Ole Miss.
What happened to whipping the dude across from you's ass? Nick Saban knows how to play it. The best way to beat a team? Put them into submission. Pound on them until they can't take it anymore.
If you'll notice in this past Saturday's games, our initial runs were gaining between 1 and 3 yards inside the tackles. By the 4th quarter, they were dead and were sick of being beaten up on. Those 2 yard runs turned into 7 yard runs, and eventually turned into 12 yard runs. It was that easy.
Football isn't hard to figure out. Kill the guy lined up across from you every single play. Eventually he'll quit.

Your assessment was spot on! There is nothing more beautiful to see on a football field than your favorite team beating their opponent into submission in the 2nd half! Saban's teams have always been the toughest in the nation.....I love being the bully! Roll Tide! # posted by Sly Zim : 11:11 AM
You're exactly right. Football is a game where men beat on other men. We can draw X's and O's all day, scheme and parry, but if you physically dominate the other team - every play - you'll win. It's really very simple. # posted by JC : 8:14 AM
