Alabama football has had quite the upheaval this off-season. Here are three questions the Crimson Tide must answer going into the 2023 season.
Here’s a question for all college football fans. Would you love for your favorite team to have the following resume:
11-2 (6-2 conference record)
45-20 Sugar Bowl Win
41 points per game
18 points allowed
Most fans would take that resume in a heartbeat. However, we aren’t talking about just any college football team; this is Alabama. The Crimson Tide are National Championship or bust every season since Nick Saban took the helm of the program in 2007.
The 2022 season was Alabama’s third two-loss season in three years and the second time in four seasons that the Tide missed the playoffs. Don’t cry for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide, however. They’ve signed the number one recruiting class for the second time in three seasons as they look to reload their roster for another playoff run.
That said, Alabama football comes into the 2023 season with some legitimate questions. Saban has answered two. Bill O’Brien and Pete Golding are gone as offensive and defensive coordinators, respectively. Enter former Notre Dame offensive coordinator Tommy Rees and veteran defensive coordinator Kevin Steele.
Alabama can work on a roster without stars Bryce Young, Jahmyr Gibbs, and Will Anderson with the coordinators hired.
Here are three burning questions for the Crimson Tide this off-season.
