4 Reasons Why Alabama’s National Championship Dreams Might Turn into Crimson Nightmares


Alabama Crimson Tide will go heads up with the Michigan Wolverines in the semi-final in the Rose Bowl on the eve of new year. After missing out on the title last season, Alabama once again has a legitimate shot at winning the national championship.

However, most football fanatics, analysts, and sportsbooks believe that Michigan will defeat Alabama in a landslide victory. While these are only speculations, these so-called experts do make some sound arguments. Let’s look at the top 4 reasons why Alabama’s National Championship dreams might turn into Crimson nightmares.

4 Reasons Why Alabama Won’t Win The National Championship


1) Michigan’s balanced offense

Unlike some teams that rely primarily on the pass or run, Michigan has a balanced attack that works well against almost every opposition. This makes them unpredictable and more difficult to defend.

Alabama’s defense, while potent, may struggle to adjust and respond to Corum’s rushing and McCarthy’s passing abilities.

2) Quarterback Vulnerability

While Jalen Milroe has established himself as a capable starter for Alabama, questions about his backup options persist.

Both Tyler Buchner and Ty Simpson are inexperienced and need to demonstrate consistency in their performance on the gridiron. If Milroe is injured, Alabama’s offensive rhythm could be significantly impaired.

3) Michigan’s Motivation

Some intangibles also come into play for example the last time the Wolverines got the better of Crimson Tide was in the 20th century, back in 1999, which makes this match-up even more valuable.

Michigan Wolverines are looking for their revenge on the Alabama Crimson Tide for their 2019 Citrus Bowl defeat. This Michigan team has shown us what they are capable of and will not shy away from completely demolishing the Tide from the very beginning of the game.

4) CFP Dispute

Many in the college football world believe Alabama does not deserve to be in the playoffs is already a significant issue for the squad. The external noise can cause distraction and put unwanted pressure on the team.

Alabama was admitted to the CPF at Florida’s expense, which finished the regular season undefeated and won the ACC Championship. These added controversies in the media can turn out to be pricey for Alabama.


While these are reasonable arguments in favor of the Michigan Wolverines, let’s not forget that the head coach of Alabama, Nick Saban, is known for his ability to adapt and make adjustments mid-game.

We can be sure of one thing, Michigan is in for a surprise. A piece of advice for the Wolverines, never underestimate your opponents.
