A-Day wrap-up: Not about stats, but about how the game is played

A-Day wrap-up: Not about stats, but about how the game is played

What to get for the man who has everything? If you’re buying for Nick Saban right now, try to find one of those fancy laser pens Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith hold up in “Men In Black” that, when flashing, erases the memory of the person looking at them.

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.

Arkansas preview: Bama is catching Razorbacks in transition

Although the Bret Bielema era ended rather unceremoniously in Fayetteville, through at least the first four games of the year, Bielema suddenly looked like Vince Lombardi in the rear-view mirror as far as most Arkansas fans were concerned.

Arkansas lost games to Colorado State and North Texas. As bad as that was, the Mean Green of North Texas blew out the Razorbacks. The combination of factors necessary for North Texas to blow out an SEC team occurs with the frequency of ice ages. Apparently 2018 was the year of the Mean Green Woolly Mammoth.

Louisiana wrap-up: Flat finish belies just how dominant Alabama was

Alabama broke out to a 49-0 lead at the half over Louisiana, then added another score in the third quarter before the air sort of went out of the ball in the fourth quarter. Nick Saban certainly can’t mind that, because it gives himself something to focus on for the upcoming week.

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.

Alabama has never shied away from front-loading its schedule during the Nick Saban era, and that doesn’t change in 2017. The Crimson Tide face off against a Florida State team many are predicting to be a playoff team in its own right, potentially making this the first of a two-game series.

On paper, this is the best Alabama class ever

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).
