Clemson wrap-up: How Bama recovers – or doesn’t – will determine much of program’s future

Clemson wrap-up: How Bama recovers – or doesn’t – will determine much of program’s future

Whether you’re an optimist (“We still have Nick Saban!”) or a pessimist (“This was the beginning of the end!”) about Alabama football probably hinges on how many total points you thought swung about on two poor decisions and throws from QB Tua Tagovailoa, and Alabama’s response to it.

Clemson preview: Is this Tiger team more Clemson ’16 or Clemson ’17?

Clemson preview: Is this Tiger team more Clemson ’16 or Clemson ’17?

This year, Alabama gets a Clemson team that is somewhere in between the last two versions. The question is how much like Clemson ’17 can Alabama make Clemson ’18 look.

Oklahoma wrap-up: Bama put this one away ‘Sooner’ than expected

Oklahoma wrap-up: Bama put this one away ‘Sooner’ than expected

Statistically, a person who didn’t watch this game would look at the numbers and suggest Alabama and Oklahoma were evenly matched teams, which is understandable. Anyone who watched the game and still asserted such, however, are the same people who are likely to believe salmon ice cream with Brussels sprout gravy makes a good dessert.

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

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

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.

Texas A&M Preview: Aggies Are Better Under Fisher, But Not On Bama’s Level Yet

Texas A&M Preview: Aggies Are Better Under Fisher, But Not On Bama’s Level Yet

There are a lot of similarities between Texas A&M in 2018 and Alabama in 2007. Both programs were coming out of the pit of despair – which for their respective fan bases, means anything less than 10 wins a season. While the Aggie offense is much improved – which you’d figure would happen, given Fisher’s history as an offensive coordinator – the Aggie defense might not be able to slow down Alabama’s high-powered passing attack enough to pull the upset.

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.
