Alabama’s defense sparking comparisons to ’92 national championship unit

How good is the 2009 Alabama Crimson Tide defense? It might be something special. Here is an article from the AP: “That defense (1992) was incredible,” the fifth-ranked Crimson Tide’s defensive end said. “It had some first-round picks, won the national championship. They were an amazing defense. We’re like, ‘Man, I wish we could be like that.'”

And maybe, just maybe, they can. The Tide’s current group has drawn some comparisons with that gold-standard unit even before reaching the season opener Saturday against No. 7 Virginia Tech. (read the entire AP story embedded below)

    Though the ’09 defense can be outstanding,Coach Oliver’s ’92 D was so good they could play an 11-man line of scrimmage and dare a Heisman winner to throw it.I doubt we’ll ever see that again.
