Alabama Crimson Tide Recruiting Update: 5-Star to Visit for Bama-TAMU

Alabama Crimson Tide Recruiting Update: 5-Star to Visit for Bama-TAMU

Recruiting is heating up. Now that Alabama is heading into the thick of their SEC schedule, recruiting has begun to heat up. With the Early Signing Period (ESP) in December, the recruiting calendar has accelerated and many will take their official visits (OV) for Bama games instead of in January. This can be inconvenient for the coaching staff who do not have time to spend with recruits when they are busy trying to win a ball game. As you are probably aware, the Class of 2018 is looking strong. That’s the good news. The great news is that it appears that 13 of these commits will be Early...

Alabama Football Film Room: Christian Miller explodes against Ole Miss

Alabama Football Film Room: Christian Miller explodes against Ole Miss

The outside linebacker turned in a dominant performance. Christian Miller had been having a relatively quiet 2018 through the first two weeks. That changed in Oxford against Ole Miss. Miller, a redshirt senior, had a career night. Going into the game, he had just 3 tackles on the year and had never recorded more than 3 in a single game. Miller notched 5 tackles against the Rebels, including 2.5 sacks, also a career-high. And he had those 2.5 sacks before halftime. While there were plenty of standout performances (Trevon Diggs, Quinnen Williams, Deionte Thompson), Miller’s was enough...

Jumbo Package: Nick Saban’s terrifying record against his former assistants

Padawan gonna Padawan. I honestly can’t disagree here. “I think Tua’s a generational talent,” Dilfer said earlier this week. “I mean, I’ve said this over and over and over. I said it a year and a half ago before he got to Alabama. I think that he’s a kid that can go through his college career and never lose a game, considering where he’s at. “I mean, he’s that good. The best I’ve ever seen.” Tua Tagovailoa just makes everything seem so easy. And, it shouldn’t be. In my child-frighteningly long lifespan, only a few players have really done that as a college...

Graphing the Tide: Player Graphs vs. Ole Miss — Hello, Damien Harris

Damien Harris is awesome. Oh, and there are some other great players too! Metric definitions A ”successful” play, as defined by Football Outsiders, is when a play gains enough yardage to keep the offense on track, i.e., 50% of needed yardage on 1st down, 70% on 2nd, or 100% on 3rd/4th. A ”big play” (aka “explosive play”) is any play that gains ≥15 yards (run OR pass). Total Running and Passing Success by Runner Seeing this many runners on the list is generally a good sign, and it was no different in this blowout win that featured 8 runners (6 of them running...

First-quarter grades for college football headlined by Alabama, LSU and Southern California Best team: Alabama The score at halftime through Alabama’s first three games: 28-7 vs. Louisville, 40-0 vs. Arkansas State and 49-7 vs. Mississippi. The Tide have been ridiculously good.

I will give you a blurb of each to pique your interests though. — It took a while for him to find a home, but once he did, mercy has Trevon Diggs ever been a revelation.

Random Thoughts From Around the Country: Big Ten Slip; Gustavo’s Goof

Chaos begins. Alabama 62 Ole Miss 7 What is this strange sensation I am feeling? It’s an emotion of great pride in an Alabama offense that can NOT be stopped. It is a feeling I am unfamiliar with. The Crimson Tide has had good offenses in the past, but this one is perhaps a once in a generation lifetime offense. Alabama has had many great defenses going way way back to them olden days when your granddaddy had to walk five miles in the snow to get to Bryant-Denny. This one is not quite great yet but it is pretty darn good. They took an Ole Miss offense that put up 47 and 76...
