Alabama started having problem after that game, what with all the suspensions and injuries.
That defense there was as close to an NFL defense that you will find in college.
Keenum outplayed Bridgewater against a better defense as a rookie.
What's so hot about Teddy?
That's not a good comparison at all.
Case Keenum vs. Alabama
11/17 for 132 yards with 1 TD and 2 INT's (54.8 QBR)
Teddy Bridgewater vs. Florida
20/32 for 266 yards with 2 TD's and 1 INT (88.6 QBR)
Not to mention that UF's defense last year was ranked #3 in the country and had 4 starters drafted last year with 4 more projected to go this year. That's 8 guys drafted and 2 UDFA's on that UF defense.
That Alabama team went 7-5 in Saban's 1st year and ranked 31st in defense. That team was recruited by Mike Shula and was nowhere near as talented as the current Alabama teams. That defense had 3 starters eventually drafted; Rashad Johnson, Rolando McClain (true freshman in 07), and Kareem Jackson (true freshman in 07). Brandon Deaderick and Javier Arenas were also drafted off that defense, but were not starters in 07.
