With a full season of data now in place, we can compare where Alabama finished according to the advanced metrics with their final poll standings.

Get ready to cry.

Alabama was a top four team in just about every metric imaginable, starting with a #2 mark in SP+. Connelly also calculated a résumé SP+ and explains it in the tweet.

Tell anyone who wants to whine about Alabama’s body of work to put that in their pipe and smoke it.

In addition, Alabama finished #4 in ESPN FPI.

Oh, what might have been.

Roll Tide.
