My 100th Post: The Tradition Midseason-ish Review! The Tradition: Midseason Review Alabama: What started as a promising season came down with a sick thud, by way of a 48-7 loss to the powerhouse Tennessee at Rocky Top. Before that 7 point outing, the Crimson Tide were averaging 48.8 points a game. Still ranked in the top 10 (#7), Bama still has a shot at a BCS game. To do so, however, they are going to have to survive a murderers row of 3 user games in a row beginning on November 8th at LSU. Bama is young at QB and RB however, so depending on what types of recruits they field and how some rising seniors step up next season, Bama will be right back in the thick of things looking for a national title. James McLaughlin has a 61% completion rate, averaging 262 yards a game. His interceptions are a bit high, as he's tossed 11 to the other team. The running game has been paced with even reps (79 vs 72) for Sylvester Shuler and Stephen Sanchez, respectively. Gaining 474 and 407 yards, and combining for 7 touchdowns. Jfosh does a great job of spreading the ball around to his wideouts, as all 4 starters have had at least 14 catches on the year. Jeremy Brown at the defensive tackle position is having an amazing year, already having amassed 11 sacks, which is rare for a player who lines up over the center. Brandon Larsen at MLB is on track for 100+ tackles, and has already scored a defensive touchdown on the year. Alabama sits at 6-1, with the one loss coming in conference.
