You don't think Mathis and Freeney would straight smash any top draft pick linemen during their rookie year?

total of 4 combined sacks against 5 (5 games) of the first round OT's this season

2 came against Miami

Option works in college, but not in the NFL.

Think about why?

then why do we run it?

and seattle for that matter

we run it maybe 4 times a YEAR. Ask your self why we only run it 4 times a year

and how successful have we been at it?

This. I'm not even sure he was the best linebacker in the country at the end of the year.

Confirmed!

If he snapped like that on his center can you imagine how he would snap at his beautiful girlfriend?

Ya...she will turn up beaten at some point.
Barrett Jones would eat that fool alive.
the worst NFL teams use to play the best college team in the nation every year.

the NFL stopped that after 6 straight losses.

the college ranks are closer to NFL levels of size and speed now more then ever.

you get the right college team(not this Bama team for sure) and a bad enough NFL team with a dumb coach and epic bad QB and who knows what could happen.

Is Notre Dame the worst #1 seed to play for a BCS game ever?

What a joke.
Bama's defense really isn't as NFL quality as it's been in the past and you have a ask the question about what happens when Alabama doesn't run the ball for 9 yards a carry every game.

Sorry they don't have a chance against an NFL team. Maybe if you allow them to carry over some of their studs from previous in their dynasty we have a conversation.

Where in the world did you come up with that? Link?

The defending Super Bowl champions used to play a College All-Star team during the preseason, but they canceled that in '77.

we're not talking about 1940's football LOL back then players were nothing close to the players of today

The speed of the game is far different today from college to pros

Interesting that one of the last few games was the college all-stars (which wasn't even a cohesive team, just a collection of players brought together for this game) came close to beating the reigning super bowl champion Steelers in 1975, 21-14. So I wonder what would've happened if the reigning college national champions of that year (as a team, with experience in their system and familiarity with each other) played the worst NFL team from that year. Or even if this college all-star squad (who came close to beating the world champs) would've played the worst NFL team from that year, instead of the best.

And yes, it's very much a different game in the NFL now than it is in the 70's, but the question is why? Part of the answer to why the NFL is so different now, with bigger, faster, stronger more athletic players is that college players are bigger, faster, stronger and more athletic than they were in the 70's. There's a clear gap between the two (the best college team and the worst NFL team), but it's not the order of magnitude that some people are making it out to be.

Just my crazy opinion.

You guys are hilarious. This bama team is probably the worst national title team in the last decade. They got b*tch slapped by Texas A&M and wouldn't have even been in the National Title game if Ohio State wasn't bowl banned. They would get shut out and have a minimum of 50 scored on them. Probably 70.

I agree that Bama would get beat but certainly not to the extreme like you suggest. This is a team that has probably 10 players that will be drafted in the first 4 rounds in the next couple of drafts. As for where they stand in the last decade.. maybe. The last champion I remember that was worse was the 2002 Ohio St. team. That team had to win 7 games by a TD or less and 2 OT games.
Any NFL team would rape and pillage any college team. It would be ugly. To think otherwise, is insane. NFL players are insanely bigger and faster than in the 70s.

Yeah but the key to an option is it only takes one time for it to work and it will go for a huge gain. Remember Kaepernick running a long a TD in against Miami? Its kind of a feast or famine type of running play.
