Mississippi State Mock: Alabama Crimson Tide Edition

Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide Dynasty are done.

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Alabama Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

The Dynasty is Over.

No, for real this time. Ole Miss beat Alabama with players they paid for, so that doesn’t really count. LSU came to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and outplayed the Tide in every way. Bama is not even the best team in its own division.

Tua is fragile.

Tua is hurt more often than he is not. The list of injuries that Tua has had is long: sprained knee, high ankle sprain, left ankle injury, another high ankle sprain and countless other minor injuries that left Tua not able to help his team. He’s too soft to play in the SEC.

Alabama’s defense is average.

Let’s look at the points this team has surrendered. Saban’s defense has given up 31 to a four-win Ole Miss team. They’ve given up 28 point to another under-performing Texas A&M squad. Just last week the Tide got pummeled for 46 points against LSU.

Coach Orgeron outcoached Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa.

MSU legend Sylvester Croom is undefeated against Nick Saban’s Tide.

That’s the loudest Davis Wade Stadium has ever been.
