Alabama Football Preview

Posted: Updated:

What goes up must always go down. Right? Does Newton's law of motion apply to the Alabama Football team? Nick Saban would never entertain that question, but Saban is all about the process and never getting complacent.

So can it be done? The very…very…very rear college football three-peat hasn't been done since Minnesota did it in the 30's. The Tide lost three offensive linemen to the NFL, along with their running back Eddie Lacy, and a few key components on defense. For most teams that would set them back for the season, but not with the Tide. Saban has built a program that doesn't rebuild, it reloads.   

The Tide loaded on offensive led by AJ McCarron. He will have a plethora of skill players around him including: running back T.J. Yeldon, and wide receiver Amari Cooper. It really is hard to find a weakness on this team, maybe in the secondary, but standouts like Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Deion Belue will lead that unit.
