It’s a few weeks before we go to T-town, and Bama seemingly has an endless supply of 4- and 5-stars to plug in, but I figure these guys were playing a lot for a reason.

The depth at Alabama is the key to their program. They have had injuries in the past and they move forward with the next batch. That’s what makes them so good at season’s end. Injuries do not mean the dip in performance at any position.
Bama can go 3 deep on defense. And probably 2 deep on offense and still have quality play
The Tide will likely survive and still thrive because of their depth, but it does leave Alabama needing to avoid a rash of injuries during the season to play at the level they are used to doing.
