2019 Alabama vs Arkansas
Alabama Football Podcast Breaks Down the Tide hosting Arkansas for Homecoming
In this episode Tom and Dave from the Alabama Football Podcast break down the Tide’s Homecoming celebration featuring the Hogs of Arkansas.
Mac is Enough
In his first career start, backup quarterback Mac Jones proved that he was more than capable of leading the Tide’s offense. Driving for scores on 7 of his 8 possessions, including 5 touchdowns, Jones demonstrated poise and a strong arm.
Several key performers left the game early due to injuries, but that’s only half the story. With limited exception, most of those players could have returned the field if needed. However, at least against Arkansas, they were not needed and their backup performed admirably.
Tight Ends Everywhere
Alabama featured seven tight ends on the night. Somehow that has to be a record.
End Game Peaking
As outside linebackers Terrill Lewis and Anfernee Jennings continue to round into form while regaining confidence in reconstructed limbs, the Tide pass rush too becomes more formidable. A combined six QB hurries and three pass deflections harken to Saban’s MO of affecting the quarterback.
Special Teams Mixed Bag
A couple bone headed decisions mixed in with solid kicking and a worthy second outing for punter Ty Perine made for sound but mixed day for teams.
Mini Game balls
Anyone can read a headline, but which players contributed in more subtle ways to the Tide’s fortune?
