Tennessee preview: Vols still struggling, but look to give Alabama a fight

  By Jess Nicholas TideFans.com Editor-In-Chief Oct. 19, 2014 During Alabama’s 2009 title run, the Crimson Tide hosted an outmanned, outgunned and thoroughly mediocre Tennessee Volunteer team for what most people expected to be a blowout win. Four quarters later, Alabama had to rely on two blocked field goals from Terrence Cody in order to […]

This week, the […]

  By Jess Nicholas TideFans.com Editor-In-Chief Oct. 19, 2014 Saturday’s win over Texas A&M didn’t just set an Alabama record for most points scored in a quarter (35, in the second frame). It also set a TideFans.com record for most incorrect game preview of all time. That second record was set both in the objective […]

Texas A&M preview: Vegas may have this one wrong

TideFans.com doesn’t often make reference to betting lines, as that’s not our thing. But when Alabama opened up as roughly a two-touchdown favorite over Texas A&M, it got everyone’s attention in the sports media world.

Alabama, a team that had just scraped to a 14-13 victory over Arkansas, the SEC West’s presumptive worst team, was being made a two-touchdown favorite over a team that beat Alabama in Bryant-Denny Stadium in 2012, carried the Crimson Tide to the wire in College Station in 2013, and has many of the same pieces returning from those teams in 2014. On the face, it doesn’t make sense.

SEC Previews and Predictions: Week 8

The Predictions Dept. fell below the 80-percent mark for the first time in the 2014 season, a season that has proven devilish to correctly predict. Last week was going just fine until the two Mississippi teams played their games, both of which went against our pregame outlook. This week, Alabama finds itself in the league’s most intriguing game, and since that will be covered in its own preview article, we look to Missouri-Florida or Kentucky-LSU in this space as the conference’s other games of the week.

Arkansas Wrap-Up: Nice to get a win, but Bama has issues

It is the height of irony that the principal reason for Alabama scoring more points than Arkansas Saturday came as a result of a special teams play on the part of the Crimson Tide.

A’Shawn Robinson and Jonathan Allen have been crushing opponents’ field goal and extra-point formations all season long. And, for the second consecutive week, one of those plays gave Alabama the opportunity to win.

Arkansas preview: Razorbacks smell blood in the water as Bama comes to town

Whether Arkansas actually follows through with doing the near-impossible this weekend, it won’t be for a lack of confidence that the impossible can be done.

In year two of Bret Bielema’s tenure in Fayetteville, Arkansas might not be one of the SEC’s best teams, but it’s not from a lack of believing. And with Alabama coming to town fresh off being made to look very mortal by Ole Miss, the Razorbacks will surely speak with a noticeably louder oink this week.
