| FTBL Alabama is stout up front


Verified Member
We're only four weeks into the season, but no team in the league has been as consistently physical on both lines of scrimmage than Alabama, which flattened Arkansas, 49-14, on Saturday. The offensive line was supposed to be a strength with the likes of senior center Antoine Caldwell and junior left tackle Andre Smith. But the defensive line has been equally imposing thanks to junior nose tackle Terrence Cody. The 360-pound junior college transfer has been the SEC's impact newcomer of the year to this point. You simply can't run at him, and he's a one-man wrecker of the pocket when opposing teams are trying to throw. Alabama heads to Georgia next Saturday having rushed for 947 yards this season while holding its opponents to 220 yards on the ground. That's what you call playing winning football.
