    The link does not work

    So here is how they break it down

    Bama QB's, RB's, OL, DL, and Coaching

    LSU WR's, LB's, DB's, and Special Teams

    I agree with QB's, OL, DL

    but I think RB's and coaching should be ruled a toss up. Both teams have very good personel at both.

    LB's should be a toss-up also.

    don't really know much about bama's linebackers, but I know your DL is awesome. I graduated High School with Kenny King, he's a great guy.

    All in all the teams are very evenly matched, with no obviuos favorite on paper. But I do have to say that Bama is playing much better football right now, they have been very consistent.

    I'm curious, how do you figure?

    LSU got beat pretty bad by a decent Auburn team.
    LSU almost got beat by a mediocre Kentucky team.

    They're probably looking at those two games, even though I agree it's probably a tie, if you look at recent games... Bama's coaches have kept them focused (a heartbreaking loss to Georgia could've equaled a let down, but instead we beat Ole Miss by 30+)... shrug

    I think it takes pretty good coaching to get a team to a 7-2 mark after losing our three offensive weapons from the SEC championship team of a year ago. Mauck and Randall had almost no experience to start the year, but they have both been winning. That takes coaching.

    Not to mention, we had the worst pass defense in the league last year. This year we have the best pass defense in the league with virtually the same personnel minus one all SEC safety.

    Are you referring to Alabama?
    Watts has been hobbled with a knee injury.
    Our primary WR and TB are out for the season (AC Carter and Galloway).

    Sure your pass defense was the worst? Ours was considered by many the worst, if not the second worst.

    We are not trying to say that Coach Fran is not a good coach, he is a great coach. But to say that he is better than Saban, we find hard to believe. Both coaches have brought there teams back from difficults situations and have done a great job of coaching this season. Simply put, I believe this catogory should be as even as any of the catogories listed.
