This easy gridiron -- Wednesdays at -- on fox sports south. Gotta go in the trenches brought to you by oh Charlie's and we started last week breaking down the Alabama L -- game where LSU. Had -- over our categories to one for Alabama. Let's go to night -- here we'll start off guys with whose most likely to score on defense Alabama or LSU Tim. This is -- number mistake LSU on this when I think they've they've created turnovers all season long their very optimistic defense and I think Morse Morse Claiborne on the outside as a shut down corner. We all know what tyrant Matthew's -- seems like he makes a big play every game he has two fumble return returns for touchdowns on the season so I won't take LSU in this. Another group we could -- -- -- fit with the strength of their front four yes Sam Montgomery come Sparky it is Mingo. You guys have nineteen sacks -- and I think that LSU plays some of the best zone coverage in the country. When you mention Claiborne they got to read of course honey badger you know attacks everything back there but. That type zone coverage team with that you know front four rush of -- he was just really impressive. It's funny I would blow -- do you guys all the way on this I think it there's gonna be a defense to score. It will be LSU doesn't necessarily make them the best defense our most physical defense the right now they are the most opportunistic defense or a category number two. Who's the best at the line of scrimmage. The Crimson Tide are the Tigers. I'm taking Alabama on this and I think Alabama has a very dominating offensive line and just that powerful run game. With Trent Richardson and I think they just controlled the clock the way they're able to run the football then you flip sides and they're they're the best rush defense in the entire conference they've only given up two rushing touchdowns all season so I'm taking Alabama now. You know I'm with you on that into -- mean 18100 yards and 27 touchdowns. You know as as an authors -- rushing just really doesn't -- And you know what when you look at the offices out of ball and -- -- the ball up front particularly you know what they're -- -- line maybe isn't as aggressive and they don't do all that. You know they don't -- is on comes back behind them they actually rely on them for structured to -- was supposed to be. But you know what they bend don't break a little bit and very much so I'm gonna have to come Alabama. -- I guess this will be three in a row too because I've also got to go. -- at Alabama I think that is what differentiates the SEC. From other conferences in this country is the line of scrimmage on the offensive and defensive line there OK category number three member last week we talked about quarterbacks. Well this time in a close game. Who do you want at the reigns throughout last miles. Who always pulls them out -- how Saban for some reason you know associate close games wouldn't it the same this team's crushing people -- right -- Let's say nick -- on this when you -- it's hard to pick against Nick Saban or guy's just a winner I mean like him or hate him I mean he wins. Football games and at crunch time I would want no other coaching college football on the sidelines he is in complete control complete demand. Of this football team younger and less miles is that we have an exciting finish he's won a lot of games but it always feels a little out of control to me and those crunch time situations clock management those are the things I've taken Nick Saban in this. You know my degree we feel that into an excellent broken reckoned -- what is that you don't agreed to too much on. When things -- You know what when I look at both these coaches a look at the philosophy behind what they do when Woody and like you mentioned I mean less miles is a riverboat gambler I mean he -- he -- he's gonna do crazy things and you never know what's gonna happen. I mean give hats off to him for having his team ready to play and there are so mentally tough going through all of us and not have a player suspended players here and there haven't mishaps but you know what he still gets it done and continues to do that but I think. -- we talked about the strength of who you want to be in their corner. I'm saying the guy -- more proactive instead of reactive is a guy for me so statements got my vote you know. For me though all of those reasons you just said about last miles is why I want less miles in that situation I know nick savings got that sort of the science silent assassin. Yeah as far as his teams are so prepared that less miles an LSU has been the most spots a lot it seems like there they were in that last year almost every single week along with -- Auburn. Yeah more often than not something happens it's not always wears flip over the shoulder catch it and the balance I think Phil yeah that's why and -- it's random right and usually happens in their favor some.
