Alabama has been dominant the entire season, but the way they're dismantling Louisiana-Lafayette today is too impressive to ignore. It's been such a strong afternoon for the Crimson Tide that even Nick Saban can't complain.
In the past, Saban has found flaws in his title-contending rosters, but it's hard for him to find any weaknesses right now. The Crimson tide lead 49-0 through two quarters, and at one point they were on pace for over 100 points.
When Saban was asked about his team's production in the first half, the legendary coach highlighted their ability to create an identity.
"We wanted to dominate the competition. I think we did a pretty good job of that. There were still a couple of plays where we could play a little better and finish some blocks on offense, but we really played pretty well on both sides of the ball. We're trying to create an identity, and i think the players did a good job of that."
It's rare for Saban to hand out compliments, but leading by 49 points in a shutout is worthy of praise.
Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts have been efficient, and Alabama is finding great success on special teams. Let's also not forget that Saban's defense has legitimately shutdown the Ragin' Cajuns' passing attack.
Louisiana-Lafayette and Alabama are currently in the third quarter of play. The game is on the SEC Network.
