Alabama completed a two week shakedown cruise by pancaking Kentucky 34-6.   Alabama came out sluggish on offense in the first half and woke up a bit in the second half.   Once again adjustments were necessary to deal with what strategy Kentucky was running on defense.  Jalen Hurts continues to run hot and cold.  At times […]

Bama Rides Big Plays to a Sloppy Win

By : -

Alabama’s second game against an overmatched Western Kentucky team turned out to be a sloppy mess on offense while the Defense continues to wreck everything in sight to make it not matter.   This defense plays nasty, possibly more nasty than any I have seen.  If healthy they could be a team no body wants […]
