I will, and I might just decide I like it enough here to move in for good.

Football Talk ...

Any good football talk in here or just homers on both sides making irrational comments about the other team?

Little bit of both. What's your take on the matchup?

Defense wins championships and both teams are at the top. Will be a struggle to move the ball on both sides with limited explosive plays as our defenses keep everything in front of them. I see a great deal of 3-and-outs by both teams with horrible 3rd down conversion rates. O-Coordinators will need to come out with an entirely different plan from previous games this year and break all tendencies. Special Teams will play a HUGE roll in this game and believe Bama has a very slight edge there. That coupled with, everyone has an opinion on it, our big game experience will push Bama to victory. Maybe something like 17-13 with everyone on the edge of their seat until the final play.

You're far too modest. The last dozen Gumps on here predicted 49-7 or far worse. I'm in the 38-6 camp myself, so naturally I thought they were crazy, and luckily a ban came for those deluded miscreants.

From someone who will be on the sideline for the game, I sure as ****ing hope that it's a close game. I love excitement.

As for the bolded text, I don't know if you have seen ND's PR team, KR this season, or our punting game...or for the matter our Kicking game, they've all been either awful, or inconsistent enough to give worry.

KR has had some nice returns, but also had some bad instances of players running into each other.
PR we get like 1 yard a return at best, but the majority of returns result in fair catches, due to Kelly not wanting to be burned by a fake, a la MSU last year. Neal, our PR man, has amazing talent, but we basically let gunners run free.
Punting is either a 40 yard punt or 20 yarder, Ben Turk is amazing at drawing penalties however.
Kicking, Brindza has been very good as of late, yet still is in his first season of primary kicker duties, and therefore is liable to mistakes such as missing XPs and short field goals.

So yeah, unless you guys have something like those problems, you have a pretty significant edge.

I def agree that the play calling will be something to watch. Although, I expect to see Saban attempt the bread and butter run/play action offense at first to see if our D walks the walk. I obviously expect them to and agree that there will be a lot of 3 n outs thus creating a chess match for field position.

After all the opening craziness this could turn out to be a game lacking the wow factor but delivering the real football fan a beautiful 60 minutes of X's O's and repeated gut checks.
