Gonna be a great game and already looking forward to 2013. Good luck and look foward to seeing yall there.
same to you... just hope we make it a fun game
THE ONLY THING I'M ADDICTED TO IS WINNING--CHARLIE SHEEN
Thanks. Yall will be just fine. Alot of young talent.
PS: Guys please done check the VIP box so I can read your responses.
Yea thats the problem we have young talent.. You guys have 5th year senior talent...
If we can get any production from the offense at all I think we will be competitive. We bring back almost everybody on Defense that was top 20 this year so I think we can keep the game close but not sure about the offense yet.
I'm going to attend the beat down.
Last time we played my parents told me they were "cheering for VT in the first half, and Alabama in the 2nd half" -- what a joke. Haha.

Will be there with the wife. Hope to find the Tide fan we tailgated with, right next to the stadium, the last time we played you. Great people and great Q.
I was there last time we played Bama and it was exciting and we had a blast. When the kickoff was returned for a TD (Roberts?) that place was rocking, on one side. Look forward to another great experience this year. Truly felt like a BCS Bowl experience, maybe even better.
We have alot of big time players returning and leaving. Our OL will be very suspect especially the first game of the season. We are losing 3 possible 1st round guys. Thats hard to replace. I think it will be a very good game.
I'm sure it will be a great game. For you.

Depends on Logan Thomas. Guy can make plays down the field and that is what Bama had trouble with this year. I think you will be surprised.
How did Depriest play for you guys at LB this year? I remember him being recruited and was kinda surprised to see him starting for y'all so early.
Guy did really well. Hes not an All Star LB like Hightower or Upshaw but the guy is solid. Makes alot of tackles and fills his gap. He looks like he has lost a step, maybe hes put on too much weight but from what I hear he is going to hit the weights a little less and do more speed and agility stuff this off season. Our guys started back monday and everyone is already in full go mode.
PS: Sometimes Saban will take the more consistent player over the guy with the higher ceiling. He has more of a don't make costly mistakes mentality. We have LBers that are more physically gifted but their football grasp of our defense hasnt kicked in yet.

For the record man, Alabama is my #2 team... At one point a few years ago I'd gone to 5 of 7 Iron Bowls. Good times.
There's nothing like an Iron Bowl man. When both teams are playing at a high level it's simply the best college atmosphere you can find. JMO Ofcourse I know everyone has their own special games.
