This loss was meaningful for Bama in that now Bama *may* now have to win the sec title game against georgia to make the playoffs(can't say for sure because eventually a 2 loss team will get in). That was different in that before last night the Bama/Georgia loser was guaranteed a spot. Now if it's Bama they aren't.
But nothing changes in the big picture....Georgia and Alabama are still easily the best teams. But have to give Georgia the edge now in that game unless
Bama corrects some of their issues.
And Bama deserved to lose last night. They kept blitzing again and again and again and never got to him.....at some point you have to stop as he's not Joe Burrow. And we were terrible inside the ten yard line of A&M. And although Bryce young threw for a lot of yards, he also had a *lot* of misses and it seems on the biggest throws of the game he was off. He's got to play better.
But Saban with Bama has won 4 national titles after a loss. It's up to Bama to make the neccessary adjustments before the showdown with Georgia.
And yes I do think we will see that, because Bama still controls their own destiny and I don't see anyone else taking the west. Hell even if Bama were to lose another conference game before georgia(which I don't see happening) they may get to Atlanta, because it's not like A&M is a lock to finish with just 2 losses. But I think Bama makes the neccessary adjustments, cleans things up, and goes into Atlanta to play Georgia with an
outstanding 11-1 record.
