James Madison should be #3! Hey, the beat the Hokies too! And the rest of their schedule looks about like Boise's.

Alabama - 6 ranked teams on schedule (Penn St, LSU, Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina, Auburn). 1 ranked OOC; 5 ranked in conference

Boise - 1 ranked team on schedule (Va Tech). 1 ranked OOC; 0 ranked in conference

Do the math. Big difference. Slice it, dice it, spin it anyway that you like, there is no comparing Boise's conference (or OOC) to Alabama or Florida's.

LMAO!! If you have, this must be one of several dupes. Thus the reason you would need to keep your profile hid. Either way, it identifies you as a bona fide bottom-feeding troll.

I don't think any Bama fans are worried. If you thought VT was a tough game....

One thing for certain tho, if Bama lost I would still be here. As I have been for years now. We won't be able to find trolls like you with a bloodhound and a search party. As soon as the wheels come off the bandwagon you guys will fade into the wood work.

One more thing while I am on a roll (no pun intended)....

If Boise wants more teams to play home and home games with them, then build something bigger than a matchbox stadium. The Smurf Turf holds, what, 40,000? Hell, Bama brings that many fans to away games! They just added to Bryant-Denny so that it now seats more than 101,000 - and yet there is still a waiting list (more than 1,500 names) to buy season tickets. So why should teams take a profit loss just to accommodate Boise? If Boise is so willing to play anyone anytime, maybe they should consider paying teams (to cover their loss of revenue due to the small venue) to come play there.

As for the SEC conference bashing and remarks about OOC scheduling, I do believe that the SEC has been the strongest proponent for a playoff. Or at least a "Plus One" format, which, BTW, would have benefited Boise last year. Want to see your team get better opportunities? Then write your congressman. Write your conference commissioners. Do something besides getting on anonymous message boards and whining about how unfair it is.

As for this season, I DO hope that Boise makes it to the BCS NCG. And that Bama is there as well. I'd love to see the whole argument settled on the field.

And how quickly you guys forget who is the defending Champions. And beat a helluva lot more ranked teams last season than Boise has in the past three seasons.

Geez, and all the time I hear about how Bama fans can't let go of the past.

Nope. They don't "need" Dareus. Or "need" Ingram. Show me a TEAM that "needs" one particular player to win, and I will show you a team that will lose. (Personally, I think that Chapman, NG, is a better, more consistent DL).

Like him, hate him, whatever, one of the reasons Saban has been so successful is that he develops depth. How quickly we forget that Dareus was not even a starter last season. Look at the stats in the Bama media guide (it is a free download from their website) or the stats at the NCAA site. Check the defensive players with tackles, games played, etc. Check the offensive players with same. Now look at this season's depth charts. You will find familiar names. THAT is how you win championships. That is how you build programs that win year after year.

That is also why you get top-flight recruiting classes every year. Those recruits know that they are going to play. And not just in "junk time". Remember, freshman Trent Richardson had as many snaps in the NCG as did the Heisman winner Ingram. How many programs can or do that?

Is Bama a better TEAM with Ingram and Dareus in the lineup? Maybe. In Ingram's case, he also serves a valuable leadership role on the team. But so do any number of other players as well. So does Bama "need" either to win? I hope not. If they do, then there are deeper issues with the team. If PSU wins this game, there will be no whining from me about missing players. It will be that the best TEAM won.

I know, I know. Sometimes it is just hard to resist the urge to whack a mole.

Hey spud did you happen to check who they are playing this week? Penn State? I believe they are in the top 20 (18). Not to mention facing Florida (8), Arkansas (14), LSU (19), Auburn (21), and South Carolina (24) AND then, if they win the west, face what would be a top 10 SEC East team. Yeah, gee, that looks like real light-weight schedule. Not to mention kicking off the previous two season against top 20 teams - one being the same V. Tech that BSU needed a last minute drive to beat.

So buy a vowel and get a clue.
