Alabama Is Not That Good, According To Fox Sports
Alabama is not that good, according to Fox Sports.
While many regard Nick Saban’s team as one of the most dominant two or three teams in the nation, Fox Sports disagrees.
In the lead-up to the Crimson Tide’s upcoming battle against LSU next week, Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt pondered whether they have actually beaten anyone good this year.
According to Klatt, if you look at Alabama’s record, they lack any semblance of quality wins.
Thus far, they have played Duke, New Mexico State, South Carolina, Southern Miss, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Tennessee and Arkansas.
If you review all of the teams in the Power 5, Alabama’s opponents have the lowest winning percentage around.
For comparison’s sake, LSU has already played and beaten Texas, Florida and Auburn – three schools that are considerably tougher than anyone Alabama has played this year.
AP Top 10 with their Opponents win %
1 LSU .585
2 Bama .391 (Last in P5)
3 Ohio State .581
4 Clemson .476
5 Penn St. .536
6 Florida .583
7 Oregon .536
8 UGA .457
9 Utah .500
10 Oklahoma .463 https://t.co/NXvl5SLpci

Is Klatt’s assessment correct?
We’ll find out for certain on Nov. 9 when Alabama and LSU square off to determine who rules the SEC this year.
