Agreed. I don't think Urban will have any problem motivating our team to work hard in practice--even after the demolition in the B1GCG.
If we play well, I like our chances against Alabama. They didn't overwhelm the competition in the SEC West. Our offense occasionally got bogged down against good defenses or when we were heavily favored (Penn St., Minnesota, Indiana), but the best defenses couldn't stop us in the biggest games, when we were underdogs in both (MSU, Wisconsin). That bodes well for what we can do when we get up for big games. I don't think we'll be favored again this year.
