College Football Preview: 2. Alabama Crimson Tide (Updated)

Alabama Crimson Tide, Number Two, Key Loss: LB Rolando McClain
Running back Mark Ingram is the best running back in the game. After the Heisman win it's obvious. But he may have to split carries now with Trent Richardson who could be an above average starter for any other team than Alabama. Greg McElroy is a fantastic quarterback and should be even better in his second season as starter passing to Julio Jones(an All Conference Selection) and returning starter Marquis Maze. The O-Line is pretty strong with All SEC tackle James Carpenter, a senior. On defense, the Crimson Tide lost many big players. Just too name a few: Terrence Cody, Rolando McClain, Javier Arenas and Kareem Jackson. Luckily they have talented linebacker Dont'a Hightower who's big frame helps him hit opposing running backs hard. Mark Barron also returns in the secondary as the strong safety after an All Conference Selection. On special teams, the Crimson Tide lost punter P.J. Fitzgerald and they have no kicker to speak of.

Heisman Hopeful: Mark Ingram
Other Notable Players: Greg McElroy
Key Games: Oct. 2 vs. Florida Quick Pick: Of course Tebow is gone but Florida is still a top ten game and alway is a good game. Alabama wins.
Sept. 11 vs. Penn State Quick Pick: No Daryll Clark or Sean Lee but Penn State will give 'Bama a non conference challenge. Alabama wins.
