Alabama Is In Big Trouble, According To Fox Sports

Alabama is in big trouble, according to Fox Sports.

Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide are currently the No. 1 team in the nation and for most of this year have seemed primed to make yet another appearance in the College Football Playoff.

Unfortunately, Alabama’s championship hopes experienced something of a blow last week when quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered a high rankle sprain in a victory over Tennessee.

Fortunately, Tagovailoa immediately had surgery to address the injury and Alabama has an easy game versus Arkansas this weekend followed by a bye week.

The Crimson Tide’s next major test will come in two weeks against LSU, and Tagovailoa has reportedly told his teammates that he should be back in time for that outing.

Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt appeared on Fox Sports today and said that Alabama better pray that they get Tagovailoa back healthy for the LSU game – otherwise they might be in big trouble.

“I’m worried for Alabama,” Klatt said.

“If Tua’s not 100%, LSU is going to beat them. I really believe that.

“They start 7 true freshmen this year. They don’t run the ball well.

“They don’t play good defense like they have the past couple of years,” he continued

“In order to win against LSU, they’re going to have to get into a shootout, and they can’t do that without Tua.”

Is Klatt right about Alabama’s vulnerabilities? Since the team has not been truly tested yet, it is impossible to say for certain.

Come Nov. 9, though – we’ll get our answer.
