Georgia wrap-up: A story too preposterous for Hollywood, but still so very real

Georgia wrap-up: A story too preposterous for Hollywood, but still so very real

From now until the day that football ceases to be played, is Jalen Hurts’ legacy, and someone should carve it into the precast concrete of Mercedes-Benz Stadium for good measure: Here played a true teammate, unselfish and honorable, a good man and leader of men, a champion. Here was where Jalen Hurts was finally appreciated for the winner he always was.

MSU wrap-up: Effect of injuries shows how tenuous Bama’s position could be

The Mississippi State game was always one to circle this year, thanks to a veteran Bulldog team with good lines, linebackers and a solid senior quarterback. The game came up on the schedule immediately following an LSU game that is always physical, no matter the outcome.

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.

2017 Previews: Alabama Crimson Tide

Defeated in the College Football National Championship Game in January, Alabama suddenly finds itself in uncharted territory: trying to avenge a loss in a trophy contest. It doesn’t happen often in Tuscaloosa. If the 2017 Alabama Crimson Tide intends to exact revenge for its defeat, it will have to do so with serious depth questions on the defensive line, an unknown quantity at placekicker, and an offensive line that has been erratic and perhaps even underachieving for several years.

Alabama was beaten up a bit against Ole Miss, and could be without the services of three or four starters as a preventative measure. It shouldn’t matter, though, as Kent State may finish the year as one of the worst teams in the old Division-IA.

Ole Miss recap: Nothing normal about Bama’s big win in Oxford

On a day when the list of people needing medical treatment for cramps probably included SEC replay official John Bible, Alabama snatched victory from the jaws of defeat before nearly handing it back.

For whatever reason, Ole Miss can struggle against teams much lesser than Alabama, but when the Crimson Tide comes to town (or when Ole Miss visits Tuscaloosa), the Rebels seem to be the one team in America that doesn’t wilt like yesterday’s daylily.

Recruiting: Alabama’s 2016 class goes the blue-collar route

Alabama signed seven players who ranked a perfect 10.0 on TideFans.com/NARCAS’s 10-point scale, down from 11 a year ago. Alabama’s 25 signees averaged a rating of 9.79, a bit off last year’s 9.86, which tied for the highest-measured Alabama class in school history, along with the 2012 class. Alabama was able to maintain a high ranking nationally, relative to other top classes, in part due to the lack of concentration of the top available players at any one school.
