    Has Bama Really Had 15 Turnovers this Year?

    I saw this statement....

    "Alabama has converted its 28 takeaways (17 interceptions) into 149 points. On the flip side, opponents have scored only 24 points off 15 Alabama turnovers.

    ......on the following website...

    I'm struggling remembering 15 turnovers this year.....did we really have that many?

    According to cfbstats: 3 INT and 12 fumbles lost.

    That's still less than 1 fumble lost per game and less than 1/4 of an INT per game. That's pretty good.

    I do recall TJ and Eddie fumbling a few times. We got spoiled with Mark and Trent on fumbles.

    Seems like we had quite a few fumbles on kick and punt returns as well.

    Most fumbles came when the game was out of reach, or at the end of the half(E.Lacy v. Michigan) but, yeah we did have that many. Which was still too many.

    I remember thinking they were spoiling us for future years.

    Turnovers were huge in LSU and Texas A&M games.

    Mark and Trent were so very good at protecting the football. I was never worried when they had the ball in their possession. This year, often times I can recall myself yelling at the TV "protect the ball". That being said, our guys are still fairly good at protecting the ball. We truly were spoiled by those two.

    You're right....it's not very many....I just couldn't remember them all, I guess.

    I see something like this and I always have to check out the other team. ND had 23 Takeaways and 14 Turnovers for a +9 margin. Bama , as stated, was 28 and 15 for +13.

    Re: Has Bama Really Had 15 Turnovers this Year?

    In 2009, IIRC, we had 13 turnovers going into the Texas game. But six of those were in two games, 2 against Va Tech & 4 vs S Carolina.

    This year we had 15, but that requires context. At least 3 of those were by the second string (1 vs UT and 2 vs Auburn). Another was immaterial, Lacy's fumble on the last play of the first half vs Michigan. Note also that 2 others came immediately after the lightning breakvs Mizzou.

    Seven of the 15 were against Top 10 teams: 2 vs UGA and LSU and 3 vs aTm.

    I think we'll be ok.

    At least one of them was a defensive turnover; a R Lester fumble on an interception return.
