" Alabama was on the cusp of fielding a special unit, finishing the regular season 9th in SP+ and 23rd in defensive havoc." I think that's a fair amount of praise. For what it's worth, I believe Alabama wins by at least a touchdown. But they've proven susceptible to allowing opposing teams' top WR to go off.
The exact same scenario has happened in the last two years. Auburn loses a low-scoring game to a ranked opponent, and then the following week they blow out Arkansas. Far from a reach to expect the same thing again.

He's 4-3-1 against ranked teams at UF against the spread. That includes four moneyline upsets against (Miss St, LSU, Michigan in '18 & Auburn in '19).
The hardware I referred to in the piece was conference or national coach of the year. Mullen won the AP SEC Coach of the Year in 2014. If you think he can't coach, feel free to bet against him, that's the beauty of gambling, putting your money where your mouth is

Anderson and Metoyer will end up being the go-to guys at their respective positions...stealing them at this price. And I bet Kiffin gives Redd some red zone carries as a thank you for transferring.
