Besides Wisconsin, which has been an average rushing team outside of the Alabama game (and that against the #87, #110, and #119 ranked rushing defenses), there is nothing about Alabama's competition to get me excited. Once Mississippi got into the conference schedule, they struggled; for comparison sake, UGA rushed for 130 more yards on Vandy on one less attempt. Overall, Alabama has played tougher competition, but it their rushing defense remains an open question when you look at what the teams they have faced have done against other schools.
I'm not saying this means anything about Saturday other than anyone quoting Alabama's defensive rushing stats and in the same breath saying Georgia hasn't faced anyone isn't really being intellectually honest.
