Iron Bowl Review: The Better Team Won

I have posted my Alabama review entitled “The Better Team Won” on‘s Tigers Corner. Here’s part of it:

Better, but still not good enough. The defense actually did okay given how they had played most of the season. Trent Richardson really only had two runs of any significant length. AJ McCarron didn’t beat the secondary deep, besides the flea flicker to score the first touchdown.

Still, though, the defense gave up way too many 3rd down conversions to win a football game. When you let the second best team in the nation continue drives over and over, things aren’t going to turn out too good.

Tackling was much better, and there was the sack-fumble-touchdown in the 2nd quarter that got the crowd back in it for a little while. With the right leadership, and the experience gained this season, these youngsters could turn out very good.
