Changes are afoot in Tuscaloosa when it comes to Alabama’s defensive coordinator.
And during his regular Monday radio segment on WJOX, college football commentator Paul Finebaum noted “McElroy and Cubellick in the morning“To discuss which DC fare will excite Tide fans the most.
As crazy as it sounds, I think Jeremy Pruitt would probably calm people down. It’s interesting how a name will make people up in arms in Tennessee, but in Alabama, Jeremy Pruitt is comfort food. Because it is returning to an era when the Alabama defense was dominant.
Finebaum said it wasn’t long ago that Nick Saban and Alabama were considered the kings of the game, but now Kirby Smart’s team is on the verge of a three-peat.
“That’s how quickly things can change,” he explained. “Whether it’s reality or not, the perception out there is that Nick Saban is fighting the current to catch up to keep his head above water.”
