Sunday Hangover: Western Kentucky

38 to 10 ~ Coach Saban was not impressed. 

Except for the Tide's play on D, I also was not impressed. 

The offense struggled to run the ball. Sure, the Hilltoppers were playing an eight-man front, but still, the line wasn't blocking as well as it should have been. When your team's second leading rusher is your quarterback, that's a problem. I'm worried about the offensive line. 

The passing game had its flashes, but Hurts seemed to hold onto the ball too long at times. His receivers bailed him out on some throws. Regardless, he went 23 for 36 for 287 yards and two touchdowns. Unless something dramatic happens, I think Hurts will be the Tide's starting quarterback this season. 

The Tide's second-team defense giving up a touchdown late will be shown repeatedly in the film room I imagine.
