Alabama Crimson Tide New Sherriff In Town Coach Papa Perry takes over for an inconsistant Alabama team after Nick Saban retired following Bama's 4-6 start. Don't let the record fool you folks, this is a very talented teams that just needs a few wrinkles smoothed out and they could compete for the SEC again by next season. It all starts with recruiting which Coach Perry inherits a group of solid young athletes who say they are staying loyal to their commitment to the Crimson Tide. Question marks are amongst the running game which has seemed to struggle, as well as the defensive tackle position since Terrence Cody will graduate following this season. Coach Perry also mentioned that from what he sees, Julio Jones is one of the top 5 receivers in the nation. Due to other receivers not stepping up and taking the pressure off, Julio has been double teamed all season and hasn't been able to produce like he did in his freshman season.
