    Who are you looking forward to watching?

    Who will win?

    etc. etc. etc.



    I'm really looking forward to watching Kapron Lewis-Moore. I'm surprised he hasn't been valued that highly draft-wise. The only ND game where I've really docused on individual play was USC and I thought Lewis-Moore was as impressive as Tuitt. So it'll be interesting to see whether that was just a flash in the pan.

    Also looking forward to watching Jesse Williams. Would like him to show some ability beyond just run-stopping as good as he is at that.

    I think Alabama wins 24-10. McCarron is much more ready to succeed if his running game stalls. I think Golson is going to have a poor game. I don't think Bama is going to drill them. ND's defensive front is too tough. But, Bama will be able to run a little and beat them with play action. I don't believe ND will be able to run at all. And, from what I've seen. Golson isn't going to win many games with his arm.

    Great matchup of dominant OL(Bama) vs dominant DL(ND).

    McCarron did not look good in the SEC championship game. Some people think ND's defensive front seven is the best in college football. McCarron has to have a good game, because if ND stacks the box agaisnt the Bama running game, McCarron is going to have to make first downs in order for Alabama to win.

    Got to see a whale of a matchup when Lewan and Clowney went head to head earlier in the bowl season.

    Now we get to see Barrett Jones pick up a blitzing Teo. Lot of awards trophies between thsoe two.

    Outside of turnover's, I see the defense that does the best on third down as giving their team the best chance to win. Eifort in the flats and on delays should be open all night if Gholston can find him.

    I think bama will win 28:13. I'm looking to see Yeldon once again, he will be the top runningback 2015, the same with amari cooper. On the defensive side of the ball i will watch haha clinton-dix, jesse williams and geno smith.

    Nix is going to line up on Jone's nose. He won't be the one to block Te'o. It will be up to the g's, te or rb's.

    Interested to know who you really meant here.

    The thing is, we haven't really seen what happens when Alabama doesn't win the battle in the trenches on offense. Even when they lost to Texas A&M, they were running the ball quite well - they just got caught in a shootout with Manziel and came out on the losing side of it.

    Is McCarron the disrespected winner who a lot of people on the internet (especially Alabama fans!) think he is? Or is he just a decent game manager who looks good behind a studly offensive line with 4-5 future draft picks (Warmack, Jones, Fluker, Steen, Karaboudjan or whatever his name is)? If any front in the country can neutralize the Alabama offensive line it is Notre Dame.

    As for Kapron Lewis-Moore, he's an NFL-caliber guy for sure but I'm not sure what he brings to the table that Brandon Deaderick does not. Some pass rushing quickness, perhaps?

    This is what I want to see tonight. He impressed me against USC. Want to see whether that was a flash in the pan or not.

    oh sorry, i didn't noticed that there were two of them. i mean the freshman DB for Alabama. Very talented cover corner. He didn't got often on field, but when he showed some very good stuff.

    haha i'm so slow. now i got what you meant :D

    I think Bama shuts down the ND offense. It will be close early but Bama pulls away in the end 30-6.

    WOW! What a first drive. This O-line is amazing. Its almost unfair, they virtually play with 6 O-lineman with Michael Williams at TE.

    ND better not get greedy. Could be over quick if they turn it over.

    To be fair, that O-line has 4 potential 1st rounders. And there is my guy Michael Williams. If there is one guy I want us to draft its him.
