It’s been a true dynasty for the Crimson Tide in the Nick Saban era (2007-present), as Alabama has had as consistent of success that any team could possibly ask for, winning the national championship in three of the last four years and winning double-digit games in each of the last five seasons, during which they have been ranked #1 nationally at some point every year. Quarterback A.J. McCarron has seemingly been there forever, but he will return for his final year as one of the best QBs in all of college football. Running back Eddie Lacy has gone to the NFL, but elite T.J. Yeldon (1,108 yards, 6.3 yards per carry) takes over. Six starters return on an elite defense (best in the nation in 2012). The question of the season will be if they can overcome the losses of Chance Warmack, Barrett Jones, and D.J. Fluker on the offensive line, but there’s no reason to think they can’t. Alabama scored the best recruiting class in college football this year, according to ESPN. Add that to the fact that they have a favorable schedule, and that this is Alabama, and that’s all you need to know about this season for the Crimson Tide. Four titles in five years is a definite possibility.
