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.

In this episode Tom and Dave from the Alabama Football Podcast breakdown the Tide’s victory over the Colorado State Rams. Hurts Development Progress is incremental and such is the development of young Jalen Hurts. Against the Rams, Hurts completed better than 70% of his passes for 248 yards, 2 touchdowns and 0 turnovers. That’s winning football. Along the way, he hit big plays down the field and a connected on a brilliant check-down when his primary target was covered. He still has a tendency to tuck the ball and run a tick or two ahead of when he should, his first touchdown run is a good example, but it’s hard to outright blame his reliance on such profound skillset. Offensive Diversity Equally as intriguing is the Tide’s diversity on offense and should you question the postulate feel free to take our litmus test – how would you want to stop the Tide’s offense if you were an opposing defense? Alabama connected with 8 different receivers on Saturday including 3 running backs and a Tight End. Calvin Ridley may be one of the most explosive receivers in the college game and Robert Foster demonstrated blazing speed on the other side. Further, Alabama has connected with 3 talented freshmen receivers on the season. Meanwhile, Alabama still features a power running attack with 4 backs poised to break off long runs at any time. And on top of it all, the Tide’s most dynamic and electric runner may be its quarterback. Give it another couple weeks to jell, and we may be looking at one of the more dynamic offenses in the game. Linebacker Depth and Rotation Colorado State found success attacking Alabama in the middle of the defense, and it should be neither a surprise (we predicted CSU might score 17), nor a cause for panic. That Alabama is down 5 linebackers and is still able to field a formidable unit is of note. That 3 of the missing ‘backers are slated to return to practice this week is a reason a reason for optimism. Mini Game balls Anyone can read a headline, but which players contributed in more subtle ways to the Tide’s fortune? Alabama’s Next Opponent Next up for Alabama is a true road game to Nashville to take on the upstart Commodores of Vanderbilt. Kick After – a ‘lil nugget that didn’t make the show Following the game Tom and I may
