Tim Tebow explains how Ole Miss, Jaxson Dart can expose Alabama's defense
Tim Tebow knows a thing or two about exposing Alabama’s defense and getting exposed by Alabama’s defense. Both happened during his career against Nick Saban’s defense in the SEC Championship Game.
On Saturday, however, Tebow was asked on SportsCenter ahead of Alabama-Ole Miss how Rebels quarterback Jaxson Dart can take advantage of Alabama’s defense.
“Well, I really think it’s going to start with his (Jaxson Dart) legs. He’s averaging 53 yards per game carrying the rock,” Tebow said. “This is a kid that runs with a lot of courage and a lot of heart, and I think by doing that this game, it can open up a lot for their star running back Quinshon Judkins, who is an absolute beast. This is a kid that has the third-most broken tackles in the country at 32. It can open everything up for their offense.
“A lot of people look at Lane Kiffin’s offense and think, ‘Oh, it’s this spread, high-flying offense.’ No, this is a run, triple-option offense. It starts with Jaxson Dart being able to run and capitalize with his legs. Let’s also remember — both losses for Alabama, the opposing quarterbacks have all run for over 50 yards. Jaxson Dart averaging 53. Could it be a possibility? We’ll see.”
We’ve seen during Saban’s career that dual-threat quarterbacks give Alabama’s defense trouble. Hendon Hooker and Jayden Daniels both accomplished already that this season.
Will Lane Kiffin become the latest Saban assistant to defeat Alabama? This will be must-watch TV for college football fans.
