Alabama And Nick Saban Have Big Problem, Says Paul Finebaum
Alabama and Nick Saban have a big problem, says ESPN’s Paul Finebaum.
While appearing on the SEC network this week, Finebaum noted that Saban’s team does not have the sort of defense that we have come to expect from the Crimson Tide over the last few years.
This season, Alabama has primarily relied on its offense to get off to a 5-0 start and become the No. 1 team in the nation.
Thus far, behind the efforts of Tua Tagovailoa, Najee Harris and Jerry Jeudy, the team has outscored opponents to the tune of 259-74.
“This is not a vintage Nick Saban defense and quite frankly, this is not even a good Alabama defense,” he said.
“They’ve been pedestrian so far…the defense has lost some of its best players including Dylan Moses, their captain, and has not looked good.”
In fact, Finebaum believes the Texas A&M will have a surprising amount of success this weekend against Alabama.
Yes, the same Aggies offense that is ranked No. 46 in the nation in scoring offense.
“I think they [Alabama] could be gashed a little bit in College Station this weekend,” Finebaum added.
Alabama-Texas A&M will kick off on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
