Who’s ready for a Crimson and White Roundtable? Alabama Gameday is, as they host this week’s CWR. Let’s get down to bus-nass (business for those of you who don’t understand what I just said):
What are your feelings on Alabama’s current position in the polls? Are we overrated? Underrated? Just right?
Given all of Alabama’s accomplishments thus far, it makes sense. If we beat Georgia (big if), then the high ranking we get will always be deserved.
What aspect of the game did Alabama control that shocked you the most? What aspect of the game was Alabama dominated in that shocked you the most?
I was shocked at how well Alabama’s defense played in the redzone. In between redzones, our D wasn’t extremely impressive, but they did shut down the Hogs when it mattered most.
Alabama really looked bad on punt return coverages throughout the game. Sure, it was better in the 2nd half, but every other team we face should have a speedster back there in waiting. We can’t allow easy TDs or easy field position if we are to make it to the next level.
Name your player of the game on Offense. Also name one on Defense.
Is there any doubt that the Offensive player of the game should be Glenn Coffee? The guy averaged over 16 YPC against Arkansas!
Javier Arenas should get the Defensive game ball for that returned INT for the TD, as well as his ability to be all over the field.
Alabama has dominated the first quarter, outscoring opponents 64-0 in the first quarter. How do you think this team will handle its first taste of adversity this season?
That really all depends on John Parker Wilson. We’ve all seen how he’s faltered in key situations, and we all remember the heartache it has caused us all. If he can FINALLY get over the hump and perform well in a big road game, then I’ll be feeling pretty good about this season. I don’t think we’ll beat Georgia, but a good performance could mean good things for the Tide this season. But more on that later…
If JPW gets intimidated by the”BLACKOUT”, then we might as well watch M*A*S*H reruns on TV Land. Hopefully, John Parker will envision Britney Spears every time somebody mentions “BLACKOUT”, so he can simply laugh at every single reference.
When will Mark Richt drive with his newborn in his lap?
Setting aside Georgia, now that the season is well underway, how do you feel Alabama stacks up against what you’ve seen of their big opponents?
Alabama’s Offensive Line should match-up to no less that even with every other team’s Defensive Line. Why? We’re strong, physical, and experienced. If we take care of business against Kentucky and Ole Miss, I am starting to like our chances against Tennessee’s offense (knock on wood)… unless they find a way to totally turn around Crompton and crew.
