    With all due respect to the 123 other schools that play major-college football, the sport's foreseeable future boils down to one question: Can anyone stop Alabama?
    The Alabama Crimson Tide, college football's defending national champion, has become the game's "it" team, an all-powerful and impervious Death Star of a program. Alabama has won two of the last three national titles. Its coach, Nick Saban, won another one while he was at Louisiana State—meaning he has won the title in three of the past seven college seasons he has coached.
    The Tide is a 14-point favorite Saturday over No. 8 Michigan—repeat: a two-touchdown favorite against a top-10 team—in its season opener. The last time Alabama was an underdog was 28 games ago, against Tim Tebow and Florida in the 2009 Southeastern Conference championship game. Result: Bama 32, Florida 13.

    He's an S$C coach. He probably cheats.

    amazing what you can do when your school admission standards are so low, PE or basket weave for credits, and you can pay your players/families.

    Ignore list. Post this irrelevant white trash spank material on Ramnation to boost their confidence.

    PS - Careful of your use of analogies... Death Stars always blow up. When probabtion hits, Saban will be long gone, but you will be there holding the bag.

    I realize that the football forum is for all college football, but should these obvious self aggrandizing threads be put in the pub or on the island?

    Now that Jimmy boy is at CSU, Bama will be lucky to get 3 wins.

    Not this year. EVAR. It's going to take at least 10 years before they win another game, unless they kidnap McElwhine and force him to move back to Bammer. Which will never happen because he would rather die than leave the dynasty he's building in Fort Fun.

    In all seriousness though, I'm gonna laugh my ass off when CSU can't score twice against us while Bama puts 30+ on Michigan
