Ole Miss recap: Nothing normal about Bama’s big win in Oxford

Ole Miss recap: Nothing normal about Bama’s big win in Oxford

On a day when the list of people needing medical treatment for cramps probably included SEC replay official John Bible, Alabama snatched victory from the jaws of defeat before nearly handing it back.

For whatever reason, Ole Miss can struggle against teams much lesser than Alabama, but when the Crimson Tide comes to town (or when Ole Miss visits Tuscaloosa), the Rebels seem to be the one team in America that doesn’t wilt like yesterday’s daylily.

Ole Miss preview: Bama trying to keep anomaly from becoming a trend

This game is more about just a win or a loss. It’s about not putting oneself in a position to have to hope for miracles. It’s also about not losing three times in a row to a historical conference also-ran that only recently has achieved status as a contender – and, perhaps not coincidentally, is battling the NCAA over alleged recruiting violations.

WKU wrap-up: Sloppy win gives Saban a gold mine of teaching opportunities

WKU wrap-up: Sloppy win gives Saban a gold mine of teaching opportunities

Alabama’s victory over Western Kentucky was as close to perfect in every way as one could ask for.

That’s because it was also as sloppy as chili-covered pizza.

Alabama doesn’t arrange its annual schedule by accident. A tough opponent in the first week is there to make the team focus up in fall camp and put some pressure on right out of the gate. Week 2 is typically against a decent opponent, usually overmatched in depth, and the wins are often sloppy and filled with things to work on in practice the following week before the SEC schedule opens up full-bore.

In that regard, Nick Saban got exactly what he wanted against Western Kentucky: Alabama won the game, was in peril for all of about 10 minutes of clock time, but committed enough mistakes that it will keep the players busy focusing on their own improvement and not on trying to avenge two consecutive losses to Ole Miss.

Previews 2016: Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Texas A&M

The offseason has been a turbulent one for Ole Miss, more so the result of an NCAA investigation into recruiting violations than anything happening on the field. The Rebels have been effective spoilers under Hugh Freeze, but haven’t shown the mental toughness necessary yet to take the final step and win the division. Now, Ole Miss will have to prove it can take that final step while dealing with off-field distractions and replacing starters at over half the positions on the field.

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Feb. 23, 2016 A week ago, bubble banter was sprouting up across the SEC.

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Feb. 16, 2016 March in Tuscaloosa used to mean more than spring football. When the NCAA tournament expanded in 1975 to include at-large teams for the first time, the Alabama Crimson Tide snagged a bid and started making itself at home.
