Saturdays Game,... Western Kentucky vs Alabama,....
This is one of those types of games that scares me. It scares me because this Tide team hasn't yet "found" itself after just one game. Will they be flat because of last weeks game? Or have they put that win behind them to focus on this week? The offensive line is still "jelling" and while there are some leaders on both sides of the ball,... they too are still in the learning mode as to how to lead.
Jalen Hurts has been crowned the next Jesus by many Tide fans but remember,.. he made some mistakes. A fumble and an INT doesn't bode well but, he is young and a work in progress.
The Tide should have no trouble controlling both the offensive and defensive lines and that is where the game is won most of the time. Flukes, trick plays and the like can certainly make up for that somewhat. But this Bama defense is scary good if they stay healthy.
