Alabama football suffered its first loss since 2019 on Saturday at the hands of the Texas A&M Aggies.
Despite the loss, the Crimson Tide’s playoff hopes are alive and well, and multiple Alabama commits are looking at the bright side of the Crimson Tide’s first defeat of the year.
Alabama’s four-star defensive back commit, Jake Pope said he feels the loss will serve as a learning experience for Alabama’s players and coaches.
“It was a tough loss, but everyone gets better from those,” Pope told Touchdown Alabama. “I know the season will still be a strong one, and things will be learned for sure. Everyone loses at some point.”
Fellow Tide defensive back pledge, Antonio Kite had similar thoughts about the Aggies’ win.
“The game was good,” Kite said. “We have to make fewer mistakes and play all four quarters.”
Several other Alabama commits took to social media to share their thoughts about the game at its conclusion.
