There are just a few practices left in the spring for the Crimson Tide, and that means A-Day is just around the corner. But before we know it, the 2016 season will kickoff and we'll all be in football mode for four straight months. Alabama has lost some key pieces from last season's national championship team, so how well will they do in the 2016 campaign?

The Tide were able to win 14 of their 15 games last season, in part due to the defacto two extra games they played in the College Football Playoff, and won the Southeastern Conference for the second season in a row: the only team to do so since Tennessee from 1997-1998. If they're able to put together another SEC championship season, they'll have another chance at winning at least 14 games, and given their favorable schedule for 2016, that should be a reasonable expectation for this team yet again.

Can Alabama three-peat in the SEC and repeat as national champs? Before they can win the national championship (if they get back to the CFB Playoff), they have to win games, so how many will the Tide win this season?
