    I was about to say the same thing... Bama just gave up more points to Arkansas than we did to a much better Indiana team, and we're still saying "Urban isn't on Saban's level," and "this would never happen at Alabama."

    I'll go ahead and put my money on Urban until he proves me wrong. I don't think he's lost anything. It's a young defense, and we need our coaches and players on that side of the ball to step up.

    The talent is there. We just need to see a few lights go on up top.

    They keep rolling the "SEC is the best conference" thing, but lately the SEC has been Bama and nobody else. Where's Auburn been? LSU? Florida? They're all shadows of what they were 5-10 years ago. It's Bana about 3-4 teams about as good as TTUN, Penn State and Wisconsin, and a bunch of crappy teams. Kind of like the Big Ten

    lol winning by 23 while running the final possession out in their redzone is a pretty comfortable win.

    I'm not looking at who they played. Its simple fact that Saban get mistakes corrected. Do you think the defense is going to have a fun week next week after giving up 31 to Arkansas? NO. Hes going to make sure that gets fixed.

    Im not confident in can say same for Meyer vs Minny. I really hope we do. I HATE PJ Fleck

    It's not easy to say that Bama is dominate...…………….It's very easy to say it based upon what they do week after week...……

    You can complain about their schedule but they do not have the type of game and effort we saw today...…….

    Our defensive backs seem lost when the ball is in the air...……

    Offensive line looked disengaged most of the day...…….

    I love Urban but Saban is simply on another level...…...I am not sure how you can not agree if you watch both programs...….

    Saban has played one team in the top 25 (Texas AM), and there's a very good chance they will get knocked out this week.

    This Bama team is definitely impressive, but Urban is still solidly in the #2 spot behind Saban in terms of accomplishment and current standing IMO. He's also 12 years younger Saban with over a decade less experience in coaching.

    All that is to say that I will trust in Urban until he proves me wrong. I don't think he's "lost his edge." In fact, I think he's put together his best staff in years. We're just experiencing the growing pains of youth, and several coaching adjustments/changes on one side of the ball. I hope we get a new coach for our LB's, but besides that, our defense should be alright.

    Alabama puts guys in the NFL each year and does not miss a beat...……..

    They certainly do not struggle with Indiana at home...………

    Nor do they lose to an unranked team on the road while giving up 55 points...……

    Saban also has not been shut out 31-0 in the playoffs...…….

    I would agree Urban is #2 but the gap between everyone and Saban is big and growing each year...……...

    Indiana gained 89 yards in the second half and averaged 2.9 yards per play, compared to 317 yards and 8.1 yards per play in the first half.

    Indiana had a 45-yard rush on its first run play of the game. Had 39 yards on 20 rushing attempts the rest of the game (1.95)
