maybe, but really we've never had ILBS looks this lost before Golding. Yes, we've had the same scheme issues with the TE seam routes or RB wheels, but the ILBS were at least doing what they should instead of who knows what. I can't remember the exact season, but with either Pruitt or Kirby we had a run of injuries at ILB one year, and somehow that coach was able to get newer/younger/less experienced players out there and at least making the right reads for the most part.
I agree with everything you say. But I have always looked at the DC position at Alabama under Saban as a Mentorship. Nick is the guru and his fingerprints are on every position and game planning. Even the play calling is under his supervision. That is why you never see him fire a DC. He is the DC. So if you want to blame anyone for the performance in that unit then it needs to be directed at Nick Saban, not the underling.

Alabama needs another rough rider in its defensive rotation: Insert Jaylen Moody
Jaylen Moody (#42) returns an interception for Alabama versus Miami
Alabama football has benefitted from the best of four and five-star athletes. Nick Saban enjoys signing talented players to the Crimson Tide, but the head coach also likes recruiting individuals that push marquee names to work harder. Those guys are usually three stars that people do not expect to have major success; however, they manage...

Nothing was gong well for Alabama’s offense during last weeks game against Florida, especially after the first quarter. After a 21 point,172 yard get off in the first 15 minutes, the offense’s production came to a screeching halt as it posted 152 yards and 10 points in the final three quarters of action. There likely

Can't be emphasized enough! We didn't do that Saturday, obviously.
Will Anderson on Tide defense: “We need to play to the Alabama standard.”
Will Anderson (#31) celebrates a big defensive play for Alabama versus Florida
Alabama earned its third win of the season last week, but one would not get that vibe from fans or players. The Crimson Tide faces Ole Miss in two weeks, and much improvement needs to happen.
