IMO, the benefits of the various things you could consider are of fairly small marginal utility - so do the best you can, and don't sweat the differences.

Check your local building code, but much more than seven would need a step. I would think eight would be okay.

I think you're right. The 6-9 Alabama/LSU game a few years ago was a high point. I'm looking forward to Alabama shutting down Ohio State and hopefully making Oregon look like boys among men.

Some teams are still putting strong emphasis on defense - Saban of course fields a top-notch hard-hitting defense. And I think Malzahn made a great move picking up Muschamp. It doesn't have to be an...
