This is a totally unscientific way to look a things, but I have noticed that more often than not, the true NC contenders sperate themselves from the other schools with similar records with the number of blowouts. Another thing NC teams do is blow out other good teams, rather than just blow out the ...

How bad were we?
Consider these names:

Those are just the no-names who started at QB for the Saints before the Finks/Mora era.
Then, look at the more famous names:

On the other hand, I don't think Pierre has 14 carries for 145 yards in him, like the game Ingram had last nite. Pierre is much more consistent and reliable, and better as a pass receiver, but I still think that Ingram has more upside as a runner....

Let's use that logic, if we are to use future professional performance to judge a college team.

2 problems with this prediction:
1. Its too early in the year for Alabama to have the "Every other year they have a noshow game" that has plagued Saban both at LSU and Alabama.
2. They had that game last year against A&M. It's unlikely to happen 2 years ina row.
