You're right on most accounts. I didn't look for any other D-Mac posts for Hogs fans before I posted, sorry. Our defense is built to stop the run not defend the circus ball that Troy was playing. No, we haven't found a passing game(as I mentioned originally) but there have only been three games when D-dog has been stopperd and he was hurt in all three. There hasn't been one single game though, that both backs have been shut down. I'm excited for tomorrow night. Should be a war.bamafan4ever said:Hey Teet,
How can we forget McFadden when we have had Arkansas fans shoving him down our throat all week? I wonder if you guy have forgotten that your defense is suspect and wasn't showing promise of being world beaters against Troy. Is DM going to play both ways this week? Did you find a passing game so you wouldn't be one dimensional?
DM is a great player on an otherwise very ordinairy team.

Oh, and if I may point out your RB's rushed for practically half that against Bama. Now, before I hear the "injury" comments, you might want to consider the 275+ they put up in the 2nd game of the season. Heck, you had trouble running the ball versus Vandy last year with a seasoned, and senior laden, offensive line.
Heck, you only rushed about 50 more yards than we did with what was perhaps one of the worst offensive lines we seen in the history of Alabama football, save one LT.
I recall a team missing 4 kicks, 3 of them FG's and it still took OT for UA to lose that game. Against a Shula coached team, as well.
I will grant you that the running attack at Arkansas can't be stopped. We've never even insinuated the possibility. Slow it down? Oh yeah, that's definitely possible.
We'll see in a little over 24 hours how this game will turn out. I'd suspect, with an Arkansas loss, you'll have a very short memory forgetting the URL of this forum.

Talk about the life being sucked away. My seats for that game were next to a mass of Arky fans, and we went from 21 up to losing in OT. What a crappy game that was. Remember the wrath of God rain that fell just before kickoff?
