    Alabama is what Florida and Will Muschamp want to be, bottom line.....they are building the right foundation for the mansion to sit on.....
    I think the OP's stats support the direction they are going. Not a bad standard to strive for......

    Oh and another fact, Saban has been running this model for 17 years, 6 at Alabama and Muschamp for 2 years total......

    Ooh thanks for the stats link, Matt. I've been searching for some statistical analysis that uses these elements.

    Bama doesn't even have a top 10 offense in the SEC. They are currently one spot behing us. They must really suck.

    Well they've played some decent competition, hung 50 on aTm, have a future nfl quarterback imo, and have a coach with a long resume of past offensive results/success/established identity and game planning skills which are all things that would make me not concerned about them. We really don't have any of that so gator fans might logically feel a little less secure than bama fans about their teams offense.

    Even still though I bet their board has threads complaining about their lack of offense.

    These stats say in the top they are based on projections. Look at the actual stats not projections based on preseason bias. Alabama lost 3 starting online from last year and are not a top 80 offense right now. Statistically.

    Football Outsiders uses predictive parameters that are not unlike the man-made Global Warming folks at East Anglia University. Projections that are built on a foundation of sand. The NCAA has simple stats for total offense, and Alabama is among the worst, but their numbers are skewed by two things:

    * Playing a horrible game against a top five defense (Virginia Tech)

    * Playing a wild shootout against a team with a poor defense but a top five offense (Texas A&M).

    * Trying to regroup with Ole Miss ad get their rhythm.

    Bama is probably better than their total offense reflects.

    They did a lot against 'Ole Miss because they mostly couldn't stop the rebels' interior pass rush. Bama's OL now is nowhere as good as that unit they had the last two years.

    Oh yes, I'm sure the OP was making that oh-so-subtle point. Oh wait no, he literally just posted images of the box scores of the two teams and said that the STATS were "shockingly similar". If anything that implies the opposite of what you're saying.

    Huh. What is your specific reasoning for trusting simple yards over success % of plays? (I'll get with you about your climate critiques on Too Hot. :) )

    I guess you would have to ask the OP what point he was trying to make.

    The fact is that to dte no one knows how good or bad most teams really are. Leverl of competition, home/awqay?, weather....Ole Miss maybe better then KY but the season is still young. The stats are almost identical and if not for the fake puint KY would have had zero points.

    This. Bama has yet to play a team with any semblance of a defense. Their schedule this year is absolute gravy. The game against aTm looked like a big 12 game. No ability to play defense.

    With the exception being VT, who has played GT, WCU, ECU & Marshall. Not exactly offensive juggernauts.

    Us and Bama both play styles that shorten the game.

    Neither team is going to run the number of plays or have the number of yards compared with teams running faster tempo. Nor will we give up as much on defense.

    On Saturday we had 402 yards of offense on seven possessions. That's over 57 yards per possession. And about 6.4 yards per play (on 63 plays).

    On every single possession we moved the ball at least into FG range, and we scored on four of seven possessions. The ones we didn't score were a missed FG, a pick, and the victory formation. So five of the seven possessions were completely successful.

    Of course, we want to clean up the pick and the missed FG, but with that level of offensive production and our defense, I can't see us getting beat. We just need to keep it up, keep protecting the ball, and keep converting in the red zone (as we've done well so far with Murph).
