Nick Saban blasts Alabama defense after Arkansas rout

Earlier this week, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said he was "disappointed" with the lack of cheering from the school's student section.

Over the weekend, the Alabama Crimson Tide handled business when they destroyed Louisiana-Lafayette at home during Week 5 just as they were supposed to, winning the game 56-14 and pushing their record to 5-0. "Three of those guys are defensive backs", Saban said. "We gave up entirely too many big plays and I thought when you saw the ball in space, you definitely saw the true team speed that they have when they get the ball in space and they were able to make some major plays there".

If you don't have speed then you're chasing speed, Morris said that day. I don't care if you're playing Louisiana whoever, if you're playing Hoover High School, you show up to the game and you support your team. "We didn't play very well as a unit".

"I think the fans are getting so entitled there at Alabama, specifically the students,"the former Heisman Trophy victor said Friday".

Alabama built leads of 21-0 and 34-14.

In case you haven't heard, Tua Tagovailoa is really good at football.

Arkansas managed an 11-play, 52-yard drive that resulted in a 41-yard Connor Limpert field goal before the Crimson Tide pulled its starters on defense. Tagovailoa hit Jerry Jeudy for scoring strikes of 42 and 60 yards in the second quarter.

Alabama was 0 for 2 on third downs against Arkansas through three quarters before going 3 for 4 in the fourth and finishing 3 of 6. The sophomore was a spectator for most of the second half. "They do a good job of moving him around and his receivers good a good job of finding holes".

Heisman Trophy frontrunner Tua Tagovailoa hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. on a shallow crossing route and he took it 76 yards up the sideline for a touchdown.

Defensively, Saban said the Tide has a lot of work to do to meet the level of play the offensive is playing at.
