Opponent Q&A: Alabama Crimson Tide

I met with Brent Taylor from to get some answers on the Alabama Crimson Tide.

1. What’s the vibe in Tuscaloosa after Saturday’s loss vs. LSU?

Lot’s of wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth. For the most part, everyone is occupying themselves with trying to come up with every possible scenario that winds up with Alabama still in the playoffs, and then arguing with each other about which one is right. Those that aren’t busy there, are trying to come up with reasons for the failure: anything from busted recruits two years ago to coaching turnover to Tua Tagovailoa being like Brett Favre with “Hero Ball” (this is used derisively, blaming over confidence as the issue for offensive woes).
