Alabama/Tennessee: Crimson Tide Task Force

When it comes to this particular game, Tennessee is not a “rival” Alabama needs to beat in order to extend the “bragging rights” in this series.

The Tennessee Volunteers are simply a
team…in the way of the prize.

The focus for Alabama following the loss at South Carolina has not changed.

If Alabama “wins out” they will play for the SEC title and by doing so, have a very strong chance to play for the national championship.

If you’re an Alabama coach, player or fan, the Tennessee Volunteers are simply another team you have to defeat in order to obtain your goals.

In respect to the game in question, Tennessee is incredibly young and certainly lacks depth at key positions. Alabama has more skill players and simply has more talent.

However, Alabama has had a difficult time in 2010 in respect to playing well on the road. Outside of the massacre at Duke, the Crimson Tide have lacked focus and intensity.

If Alabama comes prepared to play from a mental standpoint and displays the proper intensity and discipline to compete at a high level…the game should go as many expect.

Come Saturday night, the Alabama Crimson Tide will mark Tennessee off the
“to-do” list.
