Why Western Carolina Will Win

The Catamounts have just enough offensive depth to keep rotating the backs while spreading around the passing game a bit.

They hardly have a high-powered attack, but they’ve been able to throw in spurts just enough to potentially connect on a big play or two down the field. They’re excellent at moving the chains and great at controlling the clock at times, but more than that …

It’s the same thing here. Now Jones and the team will get a full scrimmage to get everything right before next week. Najee Harris and company won’t have any problems ripping through the horrible Western Carolina defense, and Jones can let it go with no worries about any consequences.

Bama can survive a few turnovers, because …

What’s Going To Happen

Obviously Alabama is going to win. It’s just a question of how sharp Jones is.

Expect him to be fantastic.

Expect Bama to rally around the situation, and expect the team to be great for  a half as it plays for its fallen leader. And then expect all the backups to be in after halftime.

Bama beat Western Carolina 48-14 in 2014, but this time around …
