Default "NFL sized team"

Jemele Hill from the four letter newtork said on Mike and Mike this morning that she was on the sideline at the Outback bowl and she was in awe of how big (physically) our team was. She said it was definitely an NFL size type team, also described it as "a whole other thing going on down there(referring to USC)". Just another note on how much we've grown (no pun intended). I've always felt like Alabama or LSU were those kinds of teams, and it makes me feel great to see someone acknowledge us in that way.

During the ESPY's last night, I was flipping back and forth between the ESPY's and the BYU vs Utah game from last year (since I live in UT). What struck me is on the whole, how much bigger our players look than the players from those two teams.

Spurrier made the comment at Media Day that our Oline "looks a lot like Alabama's" Oline. He then added that he just hopes our guys can play as good as theirs.

The big difference I see in the top teams (Alabama, LSU) is that they play on a different level of intensity and attitude compared to the midtier teams in the conference on the big stage.

That's is true to an extent, but a Chihuahua could have all the fight in the world, but if it gets into it with a Rottweiler it is still going to get obliterated.

Good point.

There's a vast difference between being big, and being able to play effectively while you're big.

Our OL was big the last few years, and have struggled at times even run blocking. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they can play as an effective unit this year.

It's doesn't matter the size of the gamecock in the fight, what matters is the amount of fight in the gamecock.

I heard her talking about it this morning. Thanks, but I still don't like her. I don't really like Greenberg either. Golic is ok.

For the amount of fight in the dog thing.... Our DL has had that fight. Our OL, not so much. But, it is getting better.

You know you're a really good team when you have quality "ready-to-go" depth at offensive line. When you can recruit 4* and 5* quality offensive linemen every year and you have 8-9 guys that could potentially be "starter" then you're doing something right.

I guess when your consistently in the top 5 in the country you can land more big time OL prospects.

We don't have that. We don't have a lot of guys that aren't starters already that could step in and fill in and not miss a beat. We have a few, but not a lot.

It's depth and dedication. To win at that level in the SEC you have to be about three deep on talent, and have to have the players that are dedicated year round to being the best they can be.

We have not had that in the past, we do now.

Well its not all about 4/5 star talent. Its also about an attitude or nasty side that those 2 teams play with on BOTH SIDES of the ball.

Eliott tries hard to get his guys to get mean but a few of them have just been soft in the past. Hopefully the extra mass our current guys have put on will give them some confidence. Brandon Shell and Cody Robinson, in particular, should be mauling defenders this year.

Our defense has some swagger and they are pretty good, but when LSU got down to crunch time last year, they got ran over (literally) after LSU manned up.

There is still a large gap between USC and Bama/LSU .. Talent does play a big part in it but so does attitude. USC is getting better but they need to get more aggressive on both sides of the ball.

I think attitude plays in to talent too. A lot of these big time high school OL recruits play with intensity which shows on their film.
