Alabama losses it’s Aura of Invicibility

Written by Tony Ghaul

When Mike Tyson, the baddest man on the planet got knocked out in Tokyo Japan, he lost his aura of invincibility. This may be the case for the Alabama Crimson Tide and Head Coach Nick Saban.

Throughout Nick Saban’s career in Alabama, the Crimson Tide has consistently been one of the best teams in college football. However, things have seemingly changed in the 2022 season. While Alabama has still been a damn good squad this season, more and more teams have found chinks in their supposedly invincible armor.

It all came to a head during Alabama’s game against their rivals, the LSU Tigers football team. The Tigers pulled off a massive upset against the Crimson Tide, winning in overtime with an insane 2-point conversion. The loss dropped Alabama to 7-2 for the season. This puts them in unfamiliar territory ahead of the Iron Bowl.

The loss to LSU has put Alabama’s College Football Playoff hopes in jeopardy this season. LSU’s win puts them on top of their conference with a 5-1 record against other conference teams. 

The next few for Alabama will determine their fate for the upcoming College Football Playoffs. They are scheduled to play Ole Miss and Austin Peay for the next two weeks before their annual Iron Bowl game against Auburn.
