Alabama can lose and still win

I know perfectly well what you’re talking about. When you start the year No. 1, most of the time a team loses a game and drops back. But I want to remind you of something: LSU lost two games when they won their last national championship, and Florida won the national championship after losing to Ole Miss. Just because Alabama loses a game or two, they can still play for the national title. If you don’t want Alabama to play in the national championship game, they’re going to have to lose four or five games.
