    Id rather come out the gates closer to #10 than #1....taking care of business with that schedule would put the preseason #25 team in the BCSCG. Besides, history shows the Tigers dont handle being ranked #1 well for very long.

    Keep in mind this is just Dennis Dodd's ranking and he's not the sharpest tool in the shed as you would say. It's better starting off high that way if we lose we have less ground to make up. Had we not started 2007 ranked #2 idk if we would have made the NCG.

    Yerp, I don't want to be ranked number 1. Top 5 is ok with me, not number 1. That is too much of a load for a team to carry on their backs.

    Fox sports must be looking in our red shirt cabinets again. Bama defense is going to be fierce with Hightower and Barron coming back, moving the ball, much less scoring is going to be a major obstacle for all. With the entire Offensive line -1 back, plus Trent, Lacy, Maze, McCarron, Sims, OK, I'm in.

    Yeah, Barron. . .the guy that Jordan freaking Jefferson abused this year. I'm actually glad he's returning.

    Can't buy experience, but it will come. He's familiar with the Saban way and third year in it. Big arm, nice touch, excellent leader, very confident. McElroy, had a ceiling, when he tried to play beyond it, he wasn't as effective. With McCarron, different talent level.

    Is that what he said when Saban slapped his ass?
