1961 Alabama Crimson Tide -- No Way -- It Was a Different Era
by j mack
Hey guys that's a "no" on the 1961 Alabama Crimson Tide.
Let's look at some key facts.
First off, that team played in an era when they didn't face balanced offenses so that 6 shut out stat would not happen against today's teams (hint Miami hurricanes of the 80's and USC trojans matt leinhart and company).
Now let's also face another fact. I don't mean to sound like a racist but get real there were no black athletes on that alabama team and we both know that those 4.7 40 yard dash 18 vertical leap white guys couldn't catch Reggie bush and his 30 inch vertical leap, nor tackle lynndale white.
Ed reed, shawn taylor could cover those alabama receivers and stack 8 or 9 guys on the line to shut down alabama's option which was the heart and soul of that offense.
2004 USC would win 24-7, 2001 Hurricanes 26-7.
Sorry guys it wouldn't be a good game.
