Let's just all take a deep breath and relax...ahhhhhhhh As for why SN gave us the nod on coaching, I would have to say it is because of the Auburn and Ky games for you guys, in which things just did not work out very well while you were getting plenty of national exposure. Winning a game with a 75 yard Hail Mary pass as time expires does not generally get the coach much credit, and I think we have all heard that Saban was disappointed in his team's performance Saturday (although I venture to guess he is OK with the final result!). Also, add to that formula the fact that Bama has been considered very much a darkhorse/surprise outside our own fanbase, and how our season has gone. And since the national press only glances at highlights and results of most games, we probably look pretty impressive and well-coached. I, for one, believe we have the two best coaches in the SEC and that this game will not come down to actual coaching. Execution, while influenced by coaching will be the key here, and with two teams VERY evenly matched in most ways, I expect it to come down to which team is most prepared to play hard and with emotion. Now, that said, team preparation is a coaching subset, so the coach who best motivates his players for this game should win. I do think Coach fran has a slight edge here now because of "The I hate the cheaters at Bama speech" that Saban never gave and last year's LSU slaughter and embarassment of Bama, the only truly poorly-played game we had last season. I am looking forward to a good one, with nice cold beer and spicy jumbalaya on the side!
