USA Football Previewed How ‘Alabama Lite’ Could Work

February 21, 2013 · By · Filed Under Football, News 

The University of South Alabama received more good press on Wednesday. This time it was the football program being covered by Billy Connelly of SBNation. He posted an article titled “2013 South Alabama football’s 10 things to know: Alabama Lite could work”.

Connelly wrote about the Jaguar’s surprisingly stout defense last season for a first-year FBS trasitionary program and Coach Joey Jones’ decision to hire former Alabama director of player development Kevin Sherrer as the new defensive coordinator and former Alabama linebacker Freddie Roach as an assistant coach.

He covered the experience returning in 2013, the need for more playmakers on offense, more punch at running back, the size of the offensive line, how the Jaguar defense was disruptive but allowed big plays, how exciting the front seven is and how that excitement could continue in 2013, the hole left from Chapuseaux’s graduation and how the Jags could get a couple of wins this season.

Connelly had plenty of statistics so go give it a read here.
