Alabama Football Podcast - College Football Talk dedicated to the University of Alabama Crimson Tide
About This Show
Hello and Welcome to the Alabama Football Podcast! We’re glad you found us.
But who are we? Fair question. We’re Tom and Dave, Alabama graduates and big college football fans. However, we have a unique and intense passion for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Over the years we’ve spent countless hours talking about the Alabama Football team and one day in 2010 we got the idea that we should turn our idle talk into a podcast, and so was born the Alabama Football Podcast. The original podcast branded as such.
In early 2014 we were offered the opportunity to merge our football podcast with BamaHammer dot com, one of the leading Alabama sports sites around and we’re looking forward to using this platform to help us reach and forge relationships with even more Alabama fans who enjoy a little intelligent and opinionated football talk.
We trust you’ll enjoy our show and we welcome your feedback.
We’re reachable via the BamaHammer website or directly at AlabamaFootballPodcast (@) gmail dot com.
In the meantime, Roll Tide.

2017 National Championship - Alabama vs. Clemson
The 2016 Alabama football team fell to Clemson in what some are calling a historic game, ending this Tide squad’s bid at becoming an all time great.

In this weekly feature I’ll highlight a handful of the lessons this team is teaching me. Funny Taste One morning just over a week ago I woke up and started looking for the monkey that shit in my mouth. How else to explain the funny taste? All these days later and still no sign of that monkey. My wife has taken to suggesting I have issues with denial. And she’s wrong. While I’ll concede that my monkey tale may be farfetched, I haven’t yet heard a better explanation. Don’t Take Our Bo It’s hard to put a fine point on this without sounding like sour grapes. Or worse, like a Texas fan circa 2010. Had Scarbough not gone down with a broken leg, Alabama beats Clemson by at least two scores. Clemson simply had no answer for Bo, who had 2 long touchdown runs and singled handedly out rushed Clemson before suffering a broken leg in the 3rd quarter. Absent its power back, Alabama shifted its attack and proved unable to sustain drives. Depth Watch I both love and hate the irony of the depth story line. Again and again we’ve unpacked exactly how thin this Alabama defense really was at several key positions. And without fail the team was able to overcome. Creative formations, emerging youngsters, and timely turnovers all masked a limited second team. This happened with such frequency that the media continued to spin the narrative of Alabama possessing such a deep roster. With so much bluster it had to be true. Except it wasn’t. Enter Clemson with its talented roster, elusive and effective passer, and a game plan designed to exploit the Tide’s lack of depth on defense. Play after play after play the Clemson receivers did two things. They rotated personnel and they took the Tide receivers deep. Add in tempo at key spots and the persistent attack took its toll. All season long to have raised the flag for depth issues, including and especially i
