Many wonder how well the 2010 Alabama team is doing as compared to the 2009 version. No one can blame fans for comparing, after all, that 2009 team turned out to be fairly good didn't it.

As chance would have it, the competition in the first two games has been fairly similar between the two seasons. This makes a comparison possible if not absolutely necessary.

We must keep in mind that no two seasons are alike. When the majority of indicators point in one direction, it can be a good indicator of comparison.
