Alabama was a huge favorite heading into today’s game with West Virginia, but the Mountaineers are putting up a serious fight, and trail Alabama by just three at halftime. During his brief interview, Nick Saban said something that few would ever suggest about Alabama:
“Defensively, we’re soft,” Saban says.

Strange as it seems, Saban may not be entirely wrong. West Virginia has gotten great push up front and looks to be just as physical as Alabama, at least so far. If that quote is indicative of how the halftime speech will go, the Alabama players better brace themselves.
