Georgia preview: A rematch in name only, as so much has changed

Georgia preview: A rematch in name only, as so much has changed

The last time we saw the Georgia Bulldogs, they – like everyone else in the college football world – were staring, dumbfounded, at an Atlanta scoreboard trying to make sense of what they had just witnessed.

Auburn wrap-up: Necessary or not, Bama makes its statement

Auburn wrap-up: Necessary or not, Bama makes its statement

Auburn’s strategy was obviously to survive the Alabama first-half storm, keep the game close, then do something heroic in the second half. Such a strategy, though, oversamples early-season results and fails to account for the Alabama of the recent. Alabama may have started the year running up huge numbers and then sitting on the leads, which led to some artificial second-half statistics that implied the Tide couldn’t play after the half.

These days? Ask LSU. Ask The Citadel. And now, ask Auburn.

Auburn preview: Tigers will be tough, but upset chances are low

Auburn has a solid quarterback, but not one that would threaten to take over a game against a secondary many believe to be elite. The game isn’t in Auburn, where weirdness is born, fertilized and cultivated into something so bizarre it begins to appear as if it should have been scripted by William S. Burroughs. And Alabama, most certainly, doesn’t have an explosiveness problem. The Tide has been as combustible as a sack of nitroglycerin in 2018.

LSU wrap-up: Bama dominates in every way in thrashing of Tigers

Alabama came into this game with no question marks on offense. It displayed no question marks on defense in this game, either. As long as kickers aren’t involved, this looks like a team without a weakness.

Missouri wrap-up: When it came time for a gut check, Tide responded

The way Alabama’s offense can score points may mean the 2018 season goes by without a truly close shave, margin-wise, but don’t for one second think Alabama’s victory over Missouri wasn’t an epic gut check.

Texas A&M Wrap-up: Tua Shows Out, Bama Shows Up Aggies

Texas A&M Wrap-up: Tua Shows Out, Bama Shows Up Aggies

Alabama is killing people through the air right now thanks to Tua Tagovailoa, a peerless wide receiver corps, and an offensive line that has perfected the art of pass protection. Tagovailoa was not sacked a single time against Texas A&M, and was left mostly clean besides.

Louisville Preview: Cardinals in transition as Alabama begins title defense

Louisville Preview: Cardinals in transition as Alabama begins title defense

If Louisville gets hot offensively, it’s not completely impossible that this game would turn into a shootout. But if Alabama can slow the Cardinal offense at all, a defense that was already bad and then lost nine starters to graduation would seem to have little chance of stopping what figures to be the most explosive Alabama offense perhaps in all of school history.

Georgia preview: Tide plays for a title against team it was built to defend

Alabama will face off against a team that was more or less built to mirror Alabama. And Alabama’s attack plan is more or less designed to attack teams like this.

Clemson wrap-up: Tigers were less dynamic, and Bama made them pay for it

Bama in the National Championship! Lost in the month of hand-wringing over whether Alabama QB Jalen Hurts was capable of leading the Crimson Tide past Clemson, was the fact that the Clemson Tigers of 2017 weren’t the Clemson Tigers of the past two years.

Texas A&M wrap-up: Win holds some positives, but only if Alabama learns from the negatives

Texas A&M wrap-up: Win holds some positives, but only if Alabama learns from the negatives

Alabama football is about competing for national championships, not just having solid seasons. For teams that aspire to the level of “good,” a win like Alabama’s 27-19 triumph over Texas A&M would be something to brag about.
For Alabama, this was a step backward, maybe more.
