B, no A, no B . . . heck I'll take either one!
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
Beat Bama! Hands down.
C) beat both
I will go with A.
I'll take B.
If we beat Bama and get routed by SC, the Bama game will come off to some as a fluke. I'll go with B. Because if we lose close to Bama, and beat up on SC then that would mean we put 2 games together in a row against good teams. It would be a sure sign of movement in the right direction.
It's hard to top beating a #1 Bama team
If Dooley beats Bama he will be retained regardless of what happens with USC - unless there is an epic collapse in November. Plus, losing to an unranked team would severely hurt their NC hopes, especially if we get demolished by USC.
I agree- a win vs Bama would essentially wipe the slate clean for Dooley this season.

Reason being if beating the no. 1 ranked country in the nation who is a rival, I'll take it. It doesn't matter if we lose big or small to SC at this point. We're out of the SEC East race. But it can still matter to a lot of people if we knock off number one.
A lot of pride comes with that.
Definitely A. Then we can say the loss to USCe was just the letdown of playing a lesser team!
A for me, every time.
Set your Bama hate aside for a minute... It's B.
2 good performances benefits Dooley more than 1 good performance.
But then if we turn around and get routed by SC, people may think it was fluke? Who cares really... a win in either game and the Doolander is safe.
If you beat Bama and go on to go 8-4 and perhaps even get a bowl victory, there aren't many people who would think that victory would be much of a fluke. Especially if we were in contention come the fourth quarter in 3 of our 4 losses...which would all be highly ranked teams.
Can't, it's bama week.
I agree with this.
Gotta go with Bama. First, it could keep them out of the NC. Second, they're higher ranked which would mean a better win for us. Third, I hate Bama more.
I'm just all about pissing off Bama.
A, because it's been so long since we beat Bama.
A more difficult question: Would you take a loss at Vandy if it means you beat Bama?
Sorry, I'm in the Nasville area. If we lost to Vandy then listening to Clay Travis would be worse than...man I'm at a loss...it may be the worst thing ever.
Seems like a no brainer. Fans want to see their rivals get beaten. That's what it's all about. Right?
A, all day everyday.
