The Tigers have played in 4 national championship games in the last 6 years but missed it last year. Personally, I believe the Tigers will win the natty this year if nothing happens to DJ. What ESPN doesn't realize is that the Tigers have the No.1 defense in the nation and the No.1 WR corps in the nation. As for the running game, it can't be worse than it was last season (much of Etienne's production was in the passing game), and they will be just fine with Pace, Shipley and Dixon behind an improved offensive line. Add to that Potter and Spiers, and the Tigers are in my opinion the most complete team in the nation.
