Nother victory.
Aint gon complain too much

Did what we had to do

Bryce got some rhythm with Burton and Brooks, Gibbs did his thing as usual, still wish we would get the running game going when it’s not garbage time

Defense is really showing out right now, hope Battle and Byron Young alright

We did a lot of good things,” Saban said about his team’s performance at Arkansas after reviewing the film. He classified the third quarter as “disastrous,” per every major statistical category
--”A lot of challenging things on offense,” Saban said of the Aggies offense, crediting head coach Jimbo Fisher.

--”I know you’re interested in the injury situation. There’s really no update on Bryce,” Saban said. He repeated that Young is “day-to-day” and currently isn’t throwing.

--Brian Branch isn’t practicing today, but should be set for Tuesday, Saban said.

--Saban said the team tried to work Jalen Milroe into past games to help him get mentally ready should he have to play in crunch time.

--The Tide offensive line continued to show improvement, Saban said. They limited Arkansas’ unit to just one on Young’s scramble.

--Saban said it’s not totally unusual for a team to prepare for two quarterbacks, as such as the case this week with Texas A&M.

--”Do you need to lose a game to get it right?” Saban said about how his team is approaching the “grind” of a season and implored players to keep learning off of wins.

--”Only thing I would tell Bryce is, ‘Don’t put yourself in a bad position,’” Saban said of Young’s decision to throw the ball away on the sack where the quarterback injured himself
Alabama has an offensive package for Milroe, but again deferred saying he could just call Jimbo Fisher and give him the Tide’s plan for this weekend.

--Kool-Aid McKinstry has the “competitive character” to thrive and has done so so far this year as a cornerback, emergency ‘Star’ player and punt returner.

--Saban cited the “rat poison, whatever it is” that he preached last year ahead of the Texas A&M game, which led to an upset bid.

“Does anybody listen? Sometimes, sometimes not.”

--Saban said “a sign of a really good running back” is when you can lead defenders to their blocks and then use a lane to cut back and find the second level.

Tough slate to finish out..

Tennessee and Ole Miss undefeated,Miss St with 1 loss looking great, and 2 big rival games that you never know what could happen with LSU and Auburn

We need Bryce

Being handicapped by a backup QB along with coach Bill O'Brien is a scary sight

Milroe is limited for sure but Jalen Hurts was limited in 2016 but we had an OC that was able to make things easier for Hurts, those long developing plays BoB was calling did him no favors.

But we definitely need Bryce, good thing is that the OL has been playing great lately.

Exactly.We don't have that confidence at OC like with Kiffin,Locksley or Sark.

No more going in expecting the best now we expect the worst.

Love the weekly Alabama players in the NFL stats updates and highlights that they play on the stadium TV.

That shyt is fire.

And it never ended, just one player after another ballin in the NFL.

The whole atmosphere and experience is amazing like none other in college football.

It was my first game in about 7 years.It's amazing what Coach Saban has created.

I just had to shake my head.He's worth every penny.

If Ricks doesn’t get healthy we may have a fatal flaw this year


all our multi CB packages feature 2 CB and 3/4 safeties(none of which can cover a lick)

TENN offense was not tough to defend. They just threw it to the inside WR when had a step on the safety.

for some reason we were scared too blitz all game for reason


our WR are getting much better
