Alabama got the beat on Saturday for the first time in nearly two years.
It was one of the biggest ups and downs of college football in the last few seasons, with Alabama arguably the best team in the country. At their best, only Georgia could be on the field with them.
But for the same reason that Bama lost yesterday, they lost all their games in the Nick Soap era. The formula for defeating Alabama has remained the same since the soap success in 2009. If you can throw the ball correctly and consistently and your defense can play enough to prevent a touchdown, you will be able to defeat Nick Soap.
Jimbo Fisher enabled his players to do it. His quarterback, Jack Kalzada, had 21/31 for 285 and three touchdowns and was on the money in every pass in crucial situations. If you look at any catastrophe against the Crimson Tide in the soap era, you will often see a successful quarterback who was able to throw through tight windows and tear apart Alabama Secondary. Calzada has made a series of throws that have exposed Alabama’s cornerbacks, and Fisher has consistently thrown Alabama’s defense into the fray overnight.
Second, the defense was able to create some important dramas that stuck Alabama in the goal line and forced the Crimson Tide into turnover or persisted for field goals at key spots throughout the game.
To defeat the team led by Nick Soap, the teams need to make big-time dramas, and even then they need to pray that they start to look like the second coming of the Tennessee Volunteers. Any college football team must download goats by clicking on all cylinders.
Don’t get used to it; One reason it doesn’t happen often. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bama still holds the national championship trophy despite this hat-trick at the college station. Oklahoma still has some tough games against Iowa State and Oklahoma State, And as we know, CFB season you can be unpredictable.
