Baller’s 2008 SEC Football Preview: Alabama Edition

Posted by Baller on June 9, 2008

Editor’s Note: Discuss this article NOW over at ACC vs. SEC! – Baller’s AVS Official 2008 SEC Preview: Alabama Edition

2007 Record- 7-6 (4-4)
Returning Starters- 17 (9-Offense, 6-Defense, K, P)

Players To Watch Out For: JPW, Terry Grant, Andre Smith, Antoine Caldwell, Rashad Johnson, and Rolando McClain

Key Losses: DJ Hall, Keith Brown, Simeon Castille

2008 Strengths: The offensive line is a veteran unit and should open many lanes for Terry Grant and hold the protection for 3 year starter JPW.

2008 Weaknesses: The defense lost many of its play-makers and will take some lickings during the early part of the season, but should hold up nicely due to plenty of stars in the past few recruiting classes. WR is also a huge concern as no substantial experience returns, but this concern is quickly thrown out the window once Julio Jones steps on the field.

2008 Overview: Due to a hard SEC road schedule and neutral site game with Clemson, the tide might see a regular season at 6-6 again. But with the core of players Saban is going to be returning in 2009, the Tide will not see 6-6 after 2008 for a long time.

    I would have to disagree with the impact Julio Jones is going to have. Freshman WR’s quickly discover running against high school corners is nothing compared to the SEC. Bama does have a tough road schedule but they are capable of winning eight games. I don’t know if they’ll actually win that many but they do have enough talent to accomplish that.

    Freshman WRs actually fair better than any other position as freshman. Look at South Carolina’s Sidney Rice, Vanderbilt’s Earl Bennett.

  3. Hey Baller, did you/do you go to Costal Carolina?
