    Bama is a dynasty in decline.

      I know I am a bit late to comment here but they wouldn't be rivalry games if only one side simply dominated every single year. Alabama had an outstanding year. They are still going to a prominent New Year's Bowl game against a top opponent. (Citrus Bowl vs. Michigan)

          You're Completely Clueless Paul. Its not CNS fault that he has to recruit #1 Class and he has to hire Major new coach replacements. I'm worried for the first to about our S/C's "possibly" the reason for all of injuries or the players lagging on there workouts. Coach Cochran CAN NOT makes these guys work hard. These are injuries that happen before season starts.

                Does Saban even coach anymore? Alabama has so much talent that he just plugs in the next group of players with a rotation of coordinators running simple schemes. He’s just a ceo. A face. A known commodity. Saban has been known as a defensive coach yet whenever he plays a good offense he gets exposed.

                      Paul is absolutely right in saying that Nick Saban lost the game.
                      Before the second pick -six thrown by Jones, Alabama has the ball on the Auburn two yard line, first and goal. Najee Harris has been gashing holes in a tired AU defense, - so the alabama coaches get cute and try to throw the ball when it wasn't necessary. That was just plain- old stupid coaching!

                          Finebaum is a snake in my opinion. He appears to pander to whatever will get him more viewers. No respect for him. I hope Saban never gives him the time of day again.

                            Alabama has accomplished a lot under Saban. But you can't win out every year. And other teams have gotten better. I would be surprised if he wins another title at Alabama. He's not getting any younger. But who knows.

                                      This year (2019) Alabama and Auburn could play each other 10 times and each would win 5 of them.

                                        Injuries aren’t the only problems with the defense. I personally think Golding was not ready to lead on this big of a stage yet.

                                          Paul is a moron he sits up there and blabs a few hours on radio to get paid. You cant find a step he made on the football field on google. Sure I like the free market which allows him to blab while many listen to him but this guy is somthing else. Plain and simple ive just never liked paul and his thoughts.

                                                            Recruiting is getting a bit more spread out. More teams are getting the better players. Plus I don't feel we've had quite the crop of awesome high school players the last few years as we've had in the past. So getting the best ones has been a war. That's why Alabama's defense isn't where has been in the past.

The playoff brought on the parody. Now Saban has had to deal with players leaving early just like LSU has dealt with for years. Kids can take the easier path to the championship at Clemson with less risk of injury. Parody is right!

                                                                            I'm an Alabama supporter but I predicted this loss. Why? Starting QB injured. Weak secondary. Field goal kicker can't score under pressure.

If you want defense, we will give you defense in 2020. Look at what is s coming back! That defensive line will be 4 deep, line backers 4 deep defensive back field 2 deep...... We will put our "D" guts deep in anybody next year. We went 10-2 with freshmen..........
