David Pollack and Joey Galloway tangle over Alabama's 2021 win-loss record
Alabama has risen to such a level in college football, that there’s a hearty debate over if the Crimson Tide will go undefeated this season.
That’s where ESPN analysts David Pollack and Joey Galloway found themselves during a recent airing of “College Football Live” as they previewed the season from a schedule standpoint.
Pollack reminded everyone that “you have to be perfect,” for Alabama to beat the over/under win total projection of 11.5 wins. So he declined to take the undefeated season.
“I can’t tell you where they’re gonna trip up but at Florida, at A&M — Ole Miss, by the way, scored with them in bunches a year ago. LSU. I look at Alabama, I know they recruit at a high level and you’re gonna tell me they have the GOAT and all that stuff. I think they’re gonna lose a game. So I would take the under,” Pollack said.
Galloway then countered, and admitted that the Texas A&M game is the most dangerous for Alabama.
“I’m gonna go with they’re not gonna lose one,” Galloway said. “I think if they had a chance to slip up, it would be at Texas A&M on Oct. 9. I think the same is true for Ole Miss and Mississippi State with Ole Miss, always … putting up a lot of yards and throw the ball around. Could be Texas A&M, but I don’t see another game on there they’re going to lose.”
Alabama will open up the 2021 season against Miami at 3:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 4.
