Kentucky could provide matchup misery in Coleman Coliseum

Alabama may only have one player right now with enough raw talent to blend in with UK’s star-studded lineup, but that’s one more than they’ve had recently. Even as a freshman, Key leads the team in scoring, rebounding and minutes played and is second in assists.

There have been a few names kicked around recently in articles on other sites and I wanted to give kind of a brief overview of those, what to expect if any of them were hired and what I think the odds would be if I was trying to handicap it.

Alabama 90, South Carolina 86: Tide survives to claim 4-OT classic

In one of the gutsiest, strangest and longest games in program history, Alabama survived blowing a 16-point halftime lead, overcame having three players foul out and somehow outlasted No. 19 South Carolina for a 90-86 road victory in four overtimes.

On paper, this is the best Alabama class ever

Sometimes, a headline says it all without the need for additional commentary: On paper, Alabama signed the highest-rated class since TideFans.com/NARCAS started tracking classes 20 years ago.

The 2012 and 2015 classes both recorded average scores of 9.86, setting a bar few people thought even Nick Saban could break. But the 2017 class did just that, finishing with an average score of 9.9 (9.904, to be precise) among 25 prospects signed (TideFans.com/NARCAS does not rate specialists, so LS Thomas Fletcher was not included in the class score).

Rating the SEC recruiting classes

Alabama Analysis: For maybe the first time ever, the conference leader didn’t get “excellent” ratings in both Total Talent Level and Needs Filled. Alabama struck out in cornerback recruiting, a sin serious enough to draw a mention from Nick Saban himself in post-Signing Day press conferences.

Alabama 80, Georgia 60: Braxton Key puts a dent in Bulldogs’ bubble

The Crimson Tide still does a mean zombie impression when the chips are down. After especially embarrassing losses in Avery Johnson’s first season, Alabama had a habit of bouncing back strong the next game. Sure enough, Bama channeled its frustration from Saturday’s blowout loss in Auburn to ruin the night of the Bulldogs, who are suddenly sliding off the NCAA tournament bubble.

Post-mortem: Bama ended up mostly meeting expectations

Post-mortem: Bama ended up mostly meeting expectations

Alabama mostly met expectations this year, in regards to what kind of team it put on the field. In respect to what it accomplished, Alabama probably exceeded expectations. TideFans.com projected Alabama to capture the No. 3 seed in the College Football Playoff (behind No. 1 Ohio State, No. 2 Oklahoma and ahead of No. 4 Clemson), but with a regular-season loss to LSU in the mix. When LSU overreacted to an early losses to Wisconsin and Auburn, though, and fired Les Miles, the chances of LSU beating Alabama mostly evaporated.
