At this point, there is a lot of skepticism surrounding the 2023 Alabama football squad. It’s been less than two years since the Tide competed in a national championship game.
Alabama was a squad that completed the previous season, ranked in the top five, and won the Sugar Bowl. Nick Saban and the team he directs are well overdue for a season that sets new records.
The Crimson Tide will have their hands complete with various obstacles to overcome over the following season. In Week 2, there will be a significant test in the form of a challenging home game versus Texas. The difficulties of playing an SEC schedule are another factor to consider.
According to Patrick Conn of College Sports Wire, other programs aren’t buying into the mistrust that’s being spread. According to Conn’s rankings, Alabama is one of the select few teams nationwide with a bullseye on its back.
The Crimson Tide will open their 2018 campaign at home at Bryant-Denny Stadium on September 2 against Middle Tennessee.
As the 2023 college football season draws closer, Roll Tide Wire will provide coverage of the Alabama Crimson Tide.
