Well, the Average defensive ranking of the opponents to date is 86th...so yeah, we haven't really played anyone.
Is that rankings before we play or after what we have done to them?
I'm too lazy to look up what they were ranked prior. But here is what the teams average over 5 (Arkansas State / Louisiana) or 6 games.

Ole Miss's defense is allowing 502 yards per games through 6 games, yikes. Bama only got 516 yards of offense against Ole Miss...that's interesting.

Wasn't much to do after the first quarter though, 2nd string half-way through the 2nd and it was just a vanilla playbook at that point too. Right now it's hard to gauge team overall statistics per game because Bama hasn't really played an entire game with the 1st team only to see what it would look like. I'd be interested in a by quarter break-down of those stats to see what the offense would be capable of if the 1st team stayed in the entire game.

Agree. Just saying, we haven't really played anyone :)

Alabama Football: Tua Tagovailoa strengthens position in the Heisman hunt

Not many quarterbacks throw ten passes in a game and improve their Heisman chances. Alabama football QB, Tua Tagovailoa did just that on Saturday.
Going into week six of the college football season, Alabama football quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa was the Heisman favorite of nearly every odds-maker in the nation. On Saturday, Tua solidified his position as the front-runner. How that occurred is somewhat unusual but it was also a statement to the extraordinary talents of the sophomore Crimson Tide QB.

Tua passed for 334 yards and four touchdown passes against Arkansas. Those numbers by themselves are very good but not exceptional. What makes them stand out as a superlative performance is Tua three only 13 passes. Of his three incompletions, one was a throw-away under rush pressure. The 10 completions in the other 12 passes averaged 33.4 yards per completion.


Going into Saturday’s games, Tua was averaging 17.59 yards per completion, good enough for No. 2 in the FBS. At No. 1 was Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray with an18.96 yards average. Tua will blow past Murray in the next update of the NCAA stats.

The other reason Tua lept forward in the Heisman race Saturday was black marks against other top Heisman contenders. Kyler Murray was one of those who harmed his chances Saturday. Murray actually had a great game against Texas. He passed for 304 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for 90 yards and a touchdown. He threw one interception but his worse failing was his team lost. Heisman contending QBs take disproportionate blame when their team loses.

Will Grier and West Virginia won on Saturday against a bad Kansas team. The 38-22 win will impress no one and Grier threw three interceptions. Ohio State’s QB, Dwayne Haskins had the best game of the other Heisman contenders. Haskins was 33-for-45 against Indiana for 455 yards and six touchdowns. Haskins also threw two interceptions.

Comparing Tua and Haskins six games into the season shows a stark difference. After Saturday, Haskins has thrown 209 passes. Tua has thrown just 101 passes. Dwayne Haskins has 25 touchdown passes. Tua Tagovailoa has 18 touchdown passes. Tua’s completion percentage is 75.2 percent compared to 67.9 percent for Haskins.

Alabama football has not needed Tua as much as most other top QBs have been needed by their teams. Tua is yet to throw a pass in a fourth quarter this season. In a head-to-head comparison between the two Heisman contenders, it is easy to see Tua is the better quarterback. Given his completion percentage, had Tua thrown as many passes as Haskins, his touchdown passes total would far exceed Haskins.


The regular season is only at the halfway point. The Heisman award has not yet been won by anyone. But Tua Tagovailoa is fast making it a one-horse race.

1. He is the only QB without an INT on the season.
2. He leads the nation in Completion% at .752%
3. He leads the nation in Yards per Attempt (14.8)
4. He leads the nation in Yards per Comp (19.67)
5. He leads the nation in Attempts to TD ratio at .........(drum roll)...... 5.61 Attempts per TD
6. Thru 6 games, he has only attempted 23 passes in the 2nd half, none in the 4th quarter.
7. His TD to Incomplete ratio is .72, 18 TD’s 25 incompletions

Good God. I suspect his numbers may come back a little closer to earth at some point - maybe. It's really unlike anything I (or anyone else) has ever seen at Bama. Not only do we have the best QB in the country - we very may well have one of the best to ever play at the collegiate level. As if we haven't already been blessed these past 10 years. It's almost embarrassing. Soak it in. This program is doing things that will not be matched any time in my lifetime. It's truly a glorious time to be a Bama fan. Here's hoping we get the damn defense fixed and do the unthinkable - roll through this season (and next) undefeated. With a healthy Tua, it's possible. Roll Tide.

It's just a math exercise, so to speak, and there's no way of this being definitive because we're making up numbers on one game. But for the hell of it, if we take the 642 from Bama away from Arkansas's numbers and replace it with their season average that ranking people are pointing to changes dramatically. It's current in the low 80's as I recall...replacing 642 with half (say 321) of that puts them in the top 25% on total defense.

In a vague sense it's about like OU bragging on their pass efficiency defense after playing Army--all about context at this point.

Honestly, for me, it's all about how so many are forgetting one small point--no one has done what he's doing in years against equally bad, and sometimes worse, competition. On an ironic note, the one fan base I've seen refrain from trying to diminish what Tua is doing...they're found in the PAC.

Mizzou won't offer up much resistance this weekend either. While 76th in Total D, they are a putrid 117th in passing D allowing 284.8 ypg. 103rd in pass efficiency D.

I mentioned in the pre-game thread that Tua was real close to breaking Namath's TD (passing) record. He did Saturday and is now tied with Jake Coker with 25 TD passes on his career--11th place.
26- Barker
27- Hunter
28- Lewis

And by the way, Jalen threw his 45th Saturday. He's two behind JPW for 2nd all time.
