2017-18 Basketball Preview: A promising script gets a last-minute rewrite

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Nov. 8, 2017 The closer Alabama basketball gets to tipping off the season, the less clear it is what kind of team Avery Johnson will be able to put on the floor. Expectations have been soaring in Tuscaloosa ever since Johnson signed a Top 5 recruiting class last fall. But […]

Arkansas wrap-up: Tide’s biggest opponent is complacency

Against Arkansas, Alabama mixed in a complacent second quarter with three solid quarters of football and beat an overmatched Arkansas team 41-9, coming within one missed Razorback PAT from matching exactly TideFans.com’s predicted score in our preview. It wasn’t a win that’s going to win any style points, but style points don’t matter for Alabama, who has a guaranteed spot in the final four so long as it keeps winning. Alabama kept things simple, didn’t show much to future opponents and just bludgeoned poor Arkansas into pork soup.

Arkansas preview: Hogs lack the horses to hang with Bama

Texas A&M had enough raw talent, moxie and sense of duty and loyalty to the head coach to make life interesting for Alabama last week.

Arkansas does not. Or, at least, it shouldn’t.

There’s not an easy way to talk about mismatches that occur within the borders of the conference without sounding condescending, but a cursory look at where certain teams fall in the five-year rolling average for recruiting rankings tells the story. In Texas A&M’s case, the Aggies have been in the top third of SEC classes most of those years. For Arkansas, getting out of the bottom third even one out of five times has be

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Feb. 1, 2017 Arkansas showed no pity to an Alabama team struggling to get out of its own way, forcing 18 turnovers and making nearly half its shots to rout the Crimson Tide 87-68 in Fayetteville and take over fourth place in the SEC.

Arkansas wrap-up: Composure in short supply as Bama piles up the points

Arkansas wrap-up: Composure in short supply as Bama piles up the points

Alabama’s offense did a solid job against Arkansas, but not a superlative one. Any turnover total greater than zero is too many, and Alabama recorded three of them. But true freshman QB Jalen Hurts continued his ascension to stardom, and the Crimson Tide put together a solid running game even without Joshua Jacobs, who suffered some kind of hand or elbow injury early in the first quarter.

But defensively, Alabama lost its composure, and as a result, Arkansas QB Austin Allen played pitch-and-catch with his receivers despite spending as much time picking himself off the ground as he did actually throwing the football.

When Arkansas hired Bret Bielema away from Wisconsin, there was but one question regarding his ability to take Arkansas to the ranks of contender in the SEC West: Could he recruit at a level high enough to make the jump?

The answer, so far, has been no.
