Alabama Crimson Tide Stats
It’s time to dive into hoops
Yep, it’s already time for a do-or-die game.
Bama lost on passing, explosiveness, and Red Zones, which is weird for 2023. But, alas!
Why exactly is Michigan favored here?
Efficiencies and explosiveness were basically tied, so the turnover (and a few other factors) won the game.
Angry Chuck and Brandon Miller made this team run.
Bama was better, but had trouble finishing and had to rely on miracles instead
This is about as good a "tune up" game as you can ask for
Maybe for the first time this season, the Tide had the advantage from start to end (and especially on 3rd down)
If Alabama can get that version of Tommy Rees on a weekly basis, then his reputation evolves from much-maligned to downright hot commodity.
Alabama points are way down this year, but so are total plays across the country
The efficiencies averaged out near a tie, except for a few key categories
The only thing better than beating Tennessee is making money off Alabama beating Tennessee. Can the Tide do it?
Defense was mostly great, but the Alabama offense still only plays 1 to 2 quarters per game.
The slow start appears typical, but leaning on the pass was a surprise winning strategy in a low-efficiency game
The Tide were respectably efficient and explosive, and that’s a good day in my book.
Can the Tide carry momentum across the state line into Starkville?
The Tide almost sunk into a hole in the 2nd quarter, but recovered to get an SEC win.
