Callers Give Their Good, Bad, and Ugly of Alabama’s Win Over Arkansas [Audio]
Nick Saban does this with his team each week following the Tide's games during the fall, and Ryan Fowler does the same thing with the audience on The Game. In Alabama's 49-30 effort over the Razorbacks up in Fayetteville, there was plenty of good, bad and ugly to discuss on Monday.
Bama's running game has been solid over the past few games, with the consistency of sophomore running back Damien Harris and the emergence of true freshman Joshua Jacobs. Jalen Hurts has been nothing if not impressive, especially being a true freshman starting quarterback under Nick Saban, the first time that's happened since he's been in Tuscaloosa.
Saban and Jeremy Pruitt's defense has been solid, especially when it comes to forcing turnovers (tied for 13th in the nation) and scoring defensive touchdowns (8 on the season). However, they've been prone to give up big plays, and have given up 79 points in their first three SEC games this season.
A major talking point this season on The Game has been the quality of officiating in college football. Some think they've been fine, but there are many who are of the opinion that the referees have been absolutely horrendous. Some of the callers expressed their discontent with the officiating on Monday as either their "bad" or "ugly."
Be sure to catch The Game each weekday from 2-6 PM.
