2022 Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide
By Jess Nicholas, TideFans.com Editor-In-Chief

OFFENSE
Alabama returns its 2021 offensive scheme mostly intact, and why wouldn’t you? Its quarterback is coming off a Heisman Trophy-winning season, the running back stable is as stacked as a Kentucky Derby field, and Alabama has re-infused its wide receiver corps with talent, both with freshman signees and two high-profile transfers. The offensive line is a question mark, but there is excitement there in regard to a change in offensive line coaches and strategy.

Predicted record:... (see article)

Nice write-up, Jess. Hope this is another championship year... and think it will be as long as there are no injuries to starters. This is only the 3rd time since Coach Saban has been at Bama that the same OC and DC are returning together... and Bama won the NC the other 2 times. :)

I do have concerns (at least right now) about TE and Oline. Hope Latu can heal and play all season.

Another thing I'd like to see this season is way less penalties, especially on defense. I think last season we had the most penalties ever since Coach Saban has been here. There are some tough road games this season, and we don't need all those penalties to put the team in stressful circumstances.

Thanks for this great write-up, Jess! I wish we had two cupcakes before Texas, to work out those position kinks. The OL should be much better than 2021. I believe CEW will have them ready, especially after a couple games to gel as a unit. The RBs and WRs will be great, and will improve as the season progresses. This defense will be a headache for opposing offenses, even with a couple of kinks. I am so ready for September 3rd. My Bama t-shirt is good to go for some luck, if needed.

Thanks for the overall write up. reading Golding's comments, it seems like he's looking at Campbell as an Inside backer instead of a edge guy, at least right now, and it sounds like he's getting himself noticed in the right way.

With his athletic ability maybe the next CJ?
