Coaches Corner: Bama’s Pass Defense

Kirby Smart

Everyone knows you can’t run on the Alabama defensive front – just ask Leonard Fournette! But in the first installment of a new segment called “Coaches Corner,” we will look at how Saban and Smart make things very difficult for opposing quarterbacks when they try to attack the Tide through the air.

A combination of stout pressure up front and athletic horses that can run in the back allow Alabama to force mistakes on quarterbacks of every skill and experience level. Take a look at this analysis from this year’s Alabama-Texas A&M game in College Station for some examples of the little things that allow Bama to create turnovers and drastically change games.
