How high can we go? Alabama-Kentucky preview.

AlabamaIf this were college basketball, I would chalk this game up as a certain loss. Kentucky basketball is among the best of the best in their collegiate sport, whereas Alabama basketball finished barely above .500 last season.

But college football is a different story. At 4-0, Alabama seems headed for anywhere from a SEC West title to another National Championship. Kentucky is .500 and has given up an average of 35 points a game. The victor is clear.

Of course, when our basketball team meets John Calipari, it'll be clear on the other end. *Sigh*.

And the timing couldn’t be better. Damien Harris was hurt last Saturday and may not be 100%. We’ll have trials by fire for the three straight games afterwards: Arkansas, Tennessee, and Texas A&M.

19th century guns are no good against Alabama.

So what are the keys to this game? Just one key: Kentucky doesn’t have the talent to beat us. Their defense is terrible and they can’t compete with us in a shootout.

Since we Alabama fans know we’ll win and Kentucky fans are still waiting for basketball season, watch for something besides the outcome. I’ve said before that, thanks largely to how much Jalen Hurts has delivered as a quarterback, our offense looks much better than in the previous three or four seasons. So how many points will we score?

Me? I’m hoping for fifty-one. If we get less than 42, I’m be disappointed. ROLL TIDE!!!
