Joel Klatt Says Alabama Dynasty Is Over, Crimson Tide Have An "Old Big Ten Defense"

Alabama's dynasty is over, at least according to Fox Sports' Joel Klatt. Klatt joined Colin Cowherd Thursday and, along with crowning Michigan State as the best program in college football, dropped a few surprising remarks regarding the Crimson Tide.

Klatt thinks that Lane Kiffin is a "vanity play-caller", Nick Saban hasn't adjusted to today's game, and that the Crimson Tide look like an "old Big Ten team" on the defensive side of the ball. Cowherd agreed on all points.

Alabama did reach the College Football Playoff just last year, so it might be a bit premature to make such a claim. But there's no doubt that at least defensively, the Crimson Tide aren't what they were just a few years ago.
