Alabama had the perfect season last year. 14-0 national champions and Mark Ingram winning the Heisman. This year they look to do it again.

With eight starters back on offense, they are loaded and ready to. With Greg McElroy back at QB, Ingram at RB, Julio Jones, Marquis Maze, and Darius Hanks WR, and three offensive linemen returning, they are ready to use their one back system all over opponents this year.

They also return a RB that was huge for Bama sometimes last year. That man is Trent Richardson, who rushed for eight touchdowns and 751 yards as Ingram's backup.



This is where everyone thinks Alabama will have a tough time this year. I think they will be perfectly fine.

They have three games to get ready for Arkansas and Ryan Mallett's passing attack, because I don't see Alabama having any trouble with Penn St., who most likely will have a young QB with no experience going into Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Alabama does return Dont'a Hightower and Mike Barron, who will lead the defense this year, but it starts with the big men up front. And it will all start with Marcell Dareus the man who intercepted Texas in the National Championship Game. He has all the tools to, I think, be better then Terrence Cody. At 6'4" 306 this man is literally a giant.


Overview- 14-0. They will end the year holding up the crystal ball once again, because of their offense and Nick Saban being one of the best coaches in the nation by getting his team ready every week.
