Could not agree more...as far as I can tell the SEC West is much improved...especially OM and Arky. LSU is an unknown, but they always play us tough. We will not cakewalk through this season as most of 2020.I can be a bit of glass half full type sometime but I do expect that a couple of teams will be able to run on Alabama and as a consequence be able to throw the ball. I believe that is a very real expectation for modern no huddle offenses. The difference has to be the offense being able to run the ball and make longer drives. The Bama defense will dominate if the opponent is forced to play from behind. With an SEC schedule there will be some nail biters.
I know we have a lot of talent, but Mack Jones and receivers had played together for several years even when not starting. They had a familiarity with each other than is hard to duplicate in one spring and fall practice.
