2020 Alabama vs TAMU
Alabama Football Podcast Breaks Down the Tides’ 2020 home opener against the Aggies of Texas A&M
In this episode Tom and Dave from the Alabama Football Podcast break down the Tide’s 2020 home opener against the Texas A&M Aggies.
Mac Strikes Again
In case there were any doubts, Mac Jones again proved himself capable behind center, this time against the Aggies from Texas. Nearly perfect, as quarterback play goes, Mac connected on several down field strikes in posting an all-time top four yardage mark and leading the Tide to 35 first half points, and 52 overall.
Metchie Makes Three
In the spring we predicted John Metchie would win the third receiver spot. A call quietly validated against Missouri was loudly vindicated Saturday as the Canadian receiver hauled in 5 passes for 181 yards and 2 touchdowns. Consider yourself on notice SEC.
Offensive Line Strong in Pass Pro
The Tide line held strong all night as Mac had time to read the defense and wait for his targets to flash open. The line performed less admirably in sustaining a running attach and was at times poor in avoiding the pre-snap errors. Both areas for improvement.
Chi is a Star
Malachi Moore isn’t only manning the Star position, he is threatening to emerge as a star in the Tide defensive backfield. In only his second collegiate game, Chi stuffed the stat logs with 6 tackles, 2 pass deflections, and an interception. Keep an eye on this one.
Tide Remains a Work in Process
As the slate will affirm, this squad is not yet in mid-season form, but the trendline is promising. Individual performances are blooming across the roster and on both sides of the ball. With all of the early success, Alabama has much room for growth and development as the season continues to unfold. As Tide fans, let’s enjoy the process while appreciating it remains a process.
Mini Game balls
Anyone can read a headline, but which players contributed in more subtle ways to the Tide’s fortune?
The Tide travels to Oxford to match wits with another former Saban assist in the person of Lane Kiffen and his band of Rebel Land Sharks. Join the support team for an early look at the matchup.
