Paul Finebaum names Alabama's biggest weak spot ahead of game at Texas A&M
The Alabama Crimson Tide face perhaps their biggest test of the young season on Saturday, traveling to College Station to take on a ranked Texas A&M squad.
The Tide will still be heavily favored to win, but this isn’t a perfect team by any means.
This week, SEC Network host Paul Finebaum diagnosed the biggest weakness the Tide have, saying the defense hasn’t looked as strong as in years past (via 247Sports):
“This is not a vintage Nick Saban defense and quite frankly, this is not even a good Alabama defense,” Finebaum said during Tuesday’s appearance on SportsCenter. “They’ve been pedestrian so far. You may have heard of the guys on the other side of the ball with Tua, Jeudy and Ruggs — the Alabama offense has been spectacular, but the defense has lost some of its best players including Dylan Moses, their captain, and has not looked good.
“I think they could be gashed a little bit in College Station this weekend.”
Now, Finebaum didn’t say he thinks Alabama will lose, but he did say that the Aggies could keep things close.
Will that be the case? Tune in to CBS at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday to find out.
