If a Frog Had Wings
Posted by Bama Mike on Friday October 28 2011 @ 05:16PM CDT
[ 2011 Season ]
"If Alabama loses to LSU" should not ever pass the lips of an Alabama fan. Alabama has averaged 229.2 rushing per game. Our opponents 44.9. In passing yards Bama averages 228.4 opponents 135.6. Points per game Bama 39.4 opponents 6.9. On the other hand LSU has 189.0 rushing versus 76.6 for their opponent. Passing 183.1 to 174.8 for their opponent. and scoring 39.2 vs 11.5 for their opponent. Looks like we have the edge. We are doing 21% better in rushing, 25% better in passing, 41% better in rushing yards allowed and 22% better in passing yards allowed. In points scored we are almost even but in points allowed we are doing 40% better. Those facts along with the advantage of Bama playing at home and having a coach who doesn't rely on luck equals to Bama continuing on it's march to a 14th national championship.

I keep hearing everybody and their mother call in to the Finebaum Show and also the sports pundits on ESPN start their discourse with the word if. If Bama loses, if Arkansas beats LSU after LSU beats Bama, if Oregon, if Oklahoma, etc, etc. ad nauseam. As my sainted mother often said when I started using the word if, "If a frog had wings he wouldn't bump his ass when he hopped." Actually she used the word tail instead of ass but that word seems more appropriate here as I hear one caller and sportscaster after another make an ass of themselves using supposition to reposition their team into a BCS bowl or even the national championship game.

Coach Saban never ventures off into the realm of fantasy. He and his staff attack one new competitor at a time. They plan, they scheme and they get our team prepared to play each game and each play the best they can play. They erase all the IFs. When this happens we do this. When they do that we do either this or that. Practicing and preparing for when not if means that you are ready for what is going to happen in every game. Sometimes this year we have been fooled. But the next time we have been ready. Fool us once ,good for you, try to fool us twice and be ready for the consequences. When a team does something unexpected or new it is not a question of if we will adjust but how much punishment will we deliver to the opposition for trying that again.

Will post the results for this game next week. So far Bama Mike is within a touchdown one way or other on every game. Prediction is already at http://tidefootball.com/pages.php?page=10/12/05/1141589 along with the predictions for all the other games.
