Alabama got off to a decent start last year -- the game against FSU notwithstanding -- but they completely lost it in their last 4 regular season games (still didn't lose any game by more than 7 points). I'm pretty excited with the improved offense and an experienced QB under center. If we can survive Clemson and Arkansas, then I think we've got a good chance against Georgia, but if we go into that game with a .500 record, then it's game over.
Mississippi State over Alabama?
And I'm gonna go with the upset: Wisconsin over Ohio State in the Big-10.
you might do well to remember that Alabumble hasn't scored an offensive TD on the Dogs since 2004.
additionally, State gets two weeks to prepare for that game this year, while Bama will be coming directly off Saban's first return game to Baton Rouge. even if Bama doesn't get annihilated in that game (which i think they will), Saban may not survive it. those students are gonna have something special waiting for him.
also, State's schedule lines up well, playing UT, Vandy, and UK from the East, while Bama has to play UK, UGA, and UT. i can definitely see the Dogs finishing 3rd in the West (even without my maroon-colored glasses).
