Our Bloguin brethren at Leftover Hot Dog approached us about doing a Q&A swap with them, and we were all too happy to oblige. We popped three softballs in their direction, and here's what they shot back at us. Look for our answers on their blog later this morning - I'm on my way to Columbia, or I'd link them myself.
Flounder's answers are below each of our questions after the jump.1. Ryan Mallett made Alabama's secondary look awfully green for much of the first half of our visit to Arkansas. Is Steven Garcia QB enough to take advantage of Alabama's youthful secondary?
The easy answer is it depends. It depends what kind of offensive line shows up to offer protection. If the line gives Garcia time then yes, Garcia has the talent to pick apart the defense. But if the O-line can not slow the rush then it could be a long night for Carolina fans. Garcia is a good QB and has weapons to make plays. If he has time to create it could be fun to watch.
2. Last season, Mark Ingram rushed for 247 yards against USC and kicked off his Heisman campaign for real. What will be different this year to contain him?
Gosh, I hope something is different. It has to be for USC to have a chance. The defensive line play for USC is critical as they have to slow the rushing attack in some manner. We have to see the linebacking crew for USC fill the gaps properly and the big thing is the USC secondary must tackle. If Ingram/Richardson is allowed to run wild then it is all 'Bama.
3. Spurrier has said "Whether or not we can beat Alabama with our best effort, I don't know." Is he just doing the typical Spurrier poor-mouthing, or is he that skeptical?
Combo of both due to the performance of 'Bama YTD. They are good. But also Spurrier is known to down play a bit. No matter what it will take a mighty effort from Carolina combined with a miracle to beat 'Bama. But there is a chance.
