Spot on. Alabama fans are absolutely nuts. Apparently Saban isn't all too satisfied in Tuscaloosa right now and is rumored to be looking at the West Virginia opening.

I think it'll be interesting to see if Rich Rod can put together a decent defense in the Big Ten. He really didn't have to do that in the Big East since no one plays defense there. But in the Big Ten he's going to have to deal with Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin, etc. that are more than capable of shutting down the spread option, especially early on when the talent to run it isn't there.
