Alabama quick hits

first_img3 things worth talking about1. Big foot Adam Griffith’s 4-for-4 effort won’t make the kicking woes last year at Auburn go away, but he had a strong start. Will he be able to deliver in that manner when the season reaches November and the weather turns brisker?2. Wrapped up Jacob Coker had a wrap on the left knee he’s had surgery on. Saban said he was prepared to play him Saturday, but is the leg worse off than we think? If he plays mop-up duty again next week, is the knee or Sims’ play, the reason?3. Not so sure hands Senior Christion Jones dropped two passes with one being at the 5-yard line. With DeAndrew White out with a separated shoulder, Jones will be asked to do more. Amari Cooper can’t catch 12 passes for 130 every game.Mini gradesRushing offense — A: Two 100-yard rushers gives Alabama much punch on ground. T.J. Yeldon went for 126 and two scores while Derrick Henry had takeover moments in rushing for 113 yards and a score.Rushing defense — B: WVU’s tried to keep Alabama honest with misdirection runs, but its leading rusher Rushel Shell had just 38 yards on 10 carries.Passing offense — C: Sims completed 72.7 percent of his passes (24-of-33) for 250 yards, but missed key throws while throwing on the run.Passing defense — D: Clint Trickett had his way with Tide defense, completing 29-of-45 passes for 365 yards and a touchdown. Think he got wore down at the end.Special teams — C: Adam Griffith went 4-for-4 on field goals in familiar settings (from Calhoun, Ga.) and freshman JK Scott had a whopping 62-yard punt, but Alabama gave up a Chick-fil-A Kickoff record 100-yard kickoff return TD.Coaching — B: Alabama’s secondary aside, Alabama looked prepared and made adjustments to slow down WVU’s offense in the fourth quarter.Overall — B: A 26 ½ point favorite, the Tide only won by 10? Maybe Alabama isn’t the second-best team in America, but it had 538 yards of total offense and allowed only one offensive touchdown.last_img read more
