Alabama Football Podcast Breaks Down the Tide’s annual Third Saturday in October rumble with the Volunteers of Tennessee
In this episode Tom and Dave from the Alabama Football Podcast break down the Tide’s first night game of the season featuring the Tennessee Volunteers.
Interesting discussion here on Tua’s injury and exactly how, or more to the point, why it happened. You’ll just have to tune in for this one.
Mac Jone’s Ascension
The Tide offense continued to produce, though not quite so prolifically. Given a week as the man in charge and we expect Jones will rise to the occasion.
Each week we find more to like regarding Alabama offensive line and running game, and this week did not disappoint. Center Chris Owens returned to the field from a knee injury that sidelined him last week but he returned to a new position and number. This speaks not only his versatility, but also to Alabama’s depth across the front. Meanwhile, Najee and Brian continue to consume both clock and yardage with increasing appetites.
Alabama played more defensive lineman Saturday with the game still on the line since perhaps 2015. This too is a positive sign at the Tide continues to bolster itself for the season’s homestretch.
While not quite an open kicking competition on the quad, Saturday’s contest featured a new Alabama punter. And not just any new punter, but a walk on who immediately made a big impression.
Mini Game balls
Anyone can read a headline, but which players contributed in more subtle ways to the Tide’s fortune?
