Jekyll and Hyde, Yin and Yang, Cain and Abel… Studies in two completely different animals that sprang from the same gene pool. Now you can add the Crimson Tide and the Embarrassed Cried.

Does any team in America look as good as the first half Crimson Tide? No not even close. Does any team look as beatable in the second half? Well maybe, but it still makes the list for entirely different animals.

Nick Saban’s hairdresser is going to be working overtime to keep the coach’s hair from turning grey (or getting pulled out).

This is utterly more frustrating than a coach who wonders why his QB only completes 50 percent of his passes. If you can dominate one half, then why not the other?

As Alabama faces the toughest part of its schedule, solving this dilemma is something that Saban must do and must do quickly for the Tide to remain in contention for national championship discussion.

Dominating Georgia will quickly be forgotten as memories of blown leads fill the minds of the voters.
