The Alabama Crimson Tide are hungry. After getting embarrassed to end last season by the Clemson Tigers, all the crimson and white heard this offseason is how Clemson is the new No. 1 team in college football. Sorry to burst everyone’s bubble, but Alabama is still the best program of the last decade, and it’s not even close. Alabama’s won 12 more games (127) than any other team over the last 10 years. That’s two entire seasons worth of wins at some schools.
Head coach Nick Saban, although he’s 67 years old, repeatedly said he has no plans of retiring. Just in case there was any doubt, the University of Alabama awarded him an eight-year contract extension through 2025 last summer. Don’t hold your breath waiting for this dynasty to end.
You better believe Alabama’s only goal this season is reaching the College Football Playoff National Championship Game and re-claiming the national title. Heisman Trophy hopeful Tua Tagovailoa is back. Jerry Jeudy is the best weapon in college football. Linebacker Dylan Moses, fresh off Second-Team All-American honors, might be the best pure tackler in the nation. The list of elite talent goes on and on and on and…
Alabama’s aiming to run the table and reach the SEC Championship Game for the sixth time in eight years. Talent is everywhere, the team’s been humbled more than ever before, and Nick Saban is ready to silence anyone who thinks he’s not the best college football coach to ever life.
In this incredible Alabama hype video, Saban asks the question, “What does it take to break you?”
I’ll be honest, I didn’t make it halfway without getting goosebumps.

Ranked No. 2 in the first USA Today Preseason Coaches Poll of the 2019 football season, the Crimson Tide lead Georgia (3), Oklahoma (4) and Ohio State (5). In the all-too-predictable ACC, it’s likely Dabo Swinney and Clemson are the No. 1 team in college football almost the entire regular season.
After last season’s failure, I think everyone is about to find out exactly what happens when you “break” Alabama football’s spirit. The Tide is rising, and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it.
