Yeah, I feel like with their built in recruiting advantage they always have athletes and depth. Then Saban always manages to improve them, especially the defense. Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like I've seen several seasons where Alabama looked vulnerable early and then by the end of the season it's a normal Alabama team.
I know they've lost some late season games (that iron bowl upset comes to mind). We can beat them on a good day with the right turn of events of course, but it's a very likely loss. Noone sane or reasonable actually expected us to beam Bama this year though, so we are kind of playing with house money that game, imho.
Yeah, I have issues with their pricing. But their fiber optic high speed internet works great and I never lose my picture in bad weather like satellite services do. So, I guess they’re mostly worth it.
