Missouri preview: Banged-up Tide could get a test from high-flying Tigers

Missouri preview: Banged-up Tide could get a test from high-flying Tigers

Although the Missouri Tigers come to Tuscaloosa riding a two-game losing streak, there is an uneasiness about this matchup that has its roots both in the history of the Alabama-Missouri series and also the high-wire act Alabama Crimson Tide has put on through the season’s first month and a half.

Arkansas wrap-up: Bama wins big, but leaves for home with lots to fix

One of the great challenges of watching the 2018 Alabama football team play is convincing people that when the offense, directed by Tua Tagovailoa, is capable of scoring points at will, there remain significant areas of concern that could affect Bama’s march back to the college football title game.

Arkansas preview: Bama is catching Razorbacks in transition

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.

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.

Ole Miss Wrap-up: Tide Rolls, Rebels Fold In Epic Beatdown

Where do you go in trying to analyze a game that finished up as a 62-7 beatdown? When the defeated opponent insists on changing mascots every couple of years and is currently promoting something called a “landshark?” When a team’s wide receiver corps refers to itself as the “NWO” while its defense is MIA?

Arkansas State Preview: Bama tries to avoid Week 2 blues against high-flying Red Wolves

Arkansas State comes into this game the owner of the No. 1 passing offense in all of FBS. The Red Wolves have college football’s top tier’s No. 5 total offense, and is tied for 1st nationally in fourth-down efficiency, red zone efficiency and fourth-down defense.

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.

Previews 2018: Alabama Crimson Tide

The 2018 team needs to completely rebuild the back seven of the defense, but it’s a testament to Saban’s recruiting that despite having just two starters returning among the linebackers and defensive backs, every unit rates as “Very Good” with the potential to be much more than that. Offensively, Alabama must decide who it is and who it wants to be, as not only is there a full-blown quarterback controversy afoot, but also a significant change in offensive coordinator leadership.

Tennessee wrap-up: Tide started slow, but hapless Vols offered no resistance afterward

Tennessee wrap-up: Tide started slow, but hapless Vols offered no resistance afterward

labama proved that ingesting rat poison leads to flat and sloppy play, especially with a first quarter Saturday that ever-so-briefly left in doubt whether the Crimson Tide would win at all. But after an Irv Smith fumble through the end zone was overturned thanks to a timely penalty from Tennessee’s Jonathan Kongbo, Alabama seemed to ignite. More importantly, Tennessee visibly deflated after having to give back its turnover, and a team on the verge of quitting doesn’t need much to push it over the edge. Alabama took full advantage, scored again before the half was out, and never looked back in the second half.

Tennessee preview: It’s been a rocky year for UT, and not likely to get better this week

Somewhere this week, there’s a Tennessee fan wondering how Alabama is still in business – and also wondering why his own team barely is.

One of the perhaps-apocryphal stories of Alabama’s long walk through the woods circa 1993-2007 was that then-Tennessee head coach Phil Fulmer told former Alabama RB Santonio Beard that Alabama “would be out of business in two years.”
