Alabama 24 Vanderbilt 10...articles

Not Vanderbilt's year, nor a year of weak Alabama football - Cecil Hurt
"It’s no slight to Nick Saban to suggest that Saturday’s performance was somewhat Gene Stallings-esque. It’s a compliment. But it wasn’t a performance that seemed to satisfy Saban.Alabama was physical. Saban wants the Crimson Tide to be more physical. Alabama was the aggressor. Saban wants more aggression. Alabama won easily. Saban wants to win more easily."

"Mustin and freshman linebacker Rolando McClain led Alabama with six tackles each. Ezekial Knight and freshman Kareem Jackson each had five stops. Safety Rashad Johnson intercepted one pass and had another near-interception overturned by replay. Defensive end Bobby Greenwood had three tackles, two behind the line of scrimmage, a sack and a quarterback hurry.Linebacker Prince Hall, who missed the season opener due to a violation of team rules, played briefly as McClain’s backup.“Rolando did a good job today,” Saban said. “He was a little mad that he got knocked off a fumble, and he dropped an interception, but at least he was around the ball.”Mustin gave credit for an assist that didn’t show up in the postgame statistics.“Our fans are the greatest in America,” he said after seeing the stadium filled with more Crimson attire than Vanderbilt home gold. “They were really loud and that fired us up.”"
