Alabama fans were less than pleased with the defensive performance from Saturday’s game against Arkansas.
The Crimson Tide defense allowed 35 points along with 468-yards of total offense in the seven-point victory, which led fans to social media to sound off on defensive coordinator Pete Golding and his unit.
Below are a few reactions from the game:
DBs struggle…Pete doesn’t seem to help them. Complex calls and not calling pressures to help. Special teams have been a nightmare all year and haven’t heard his name brought up once

The obvious. Defense is shaky. Secondary looks lost at times. Linebackers have no size. Harris is big. Drew Sanders is big. Henry looks small. Turner looks small. Will Anderson, enough said. Stud

It’s far past time to address this elephant in the room. This D was to be far better this yr. Each yr it just keeps getting worse.

Not championship caliber

I think the blitz packages we have with the inside linebackers are horrible. Christian Harris has not been good this year. Josh Jobe has to be one of the worst DBs in Saban era. With all that being said, we have a very average defense.

Moments of brilliance and moments of incompetence…this game was a microcosm of the whole season so far. Will the team have any gas left in the tank for UGA? Auburn will be another 60 min battle, while the Dawgs get to feast on GA Tech

Kelly and Golding are nowhere near on the same page.
