Who likes our draw in the playoffs?
« on: December 10, 2015, 12:46:57 pm »
I think we got our best-case scenario in pulling Michigan State first. I did not want to play Oklahoma in the first round. I think we'll do better against them in the NC game. What say you?
Roll Tide!

I like playing Michigan State 1st... this is a good matchup for Bama and we are favored by 9.5

I bet we'd be favored over any of the other top 4, but I bet we'd still lose to OU.

Our worst matchup concern is this

Playing ourselves > Oklahoma > Clemson > Mich State

So I love our matchup in the first round.  That being said we will be playing a hot QB in the next round regardless of opponent, but I believe Oklahoma has the most well rounded team in the CFP, meaning they don't really have the best anything, but just really good everything.  That is dangerous in a one and done.

We will kill Michigan State just like we did in 2010. We cruise past them into the championship vs Clemsux.

Clemsux gives us trouble in the first half, but we win easily in the 4th.

Enjoy the ride! #16 is right around the corner!

Giving the way the Tide defense is playing I don't think any matchup is going to be a problem. Henry is running over people and ball and clock control should in Tide favor for all match ups. It is very hard to simulate how aggressive the Alabama front 7 is unless you play in the SEC. If there was a team that understand though it would be Michigan State. It will be a slug feast between two great defenses. Michigan state has the edge at quarterback but again give Henry the ball and limit their opportunities. It will be low scoring with Henry making the play for Bama to move on !!!! Roll Tide

I think the matchup against Michigan State is the most favorable one we could have gotten for the first round. They are a very talented team with a great front seven, but if Henry breaks lose we should be fine.

Yeah, I'm starting to think Henry gets a good 4th quarter in this game after wearing them down. I can't wait!
