Georgia’s head football coach Kirby Smart complimented Alabama football’s rushing attack during his Thursday press conference.
Alabama’s running back room is dealing with injuries as Jase McClellan is likely to not play against Georgia.
Smart feels Alabama’s rushing attack is good because of its depth and talent.
“They have really good backs,” Saban said. “They rotate three guys in and out, and they all complement each other really well. They’re powerful. They play behind a really good offensive line. Yards after contact is something that jumps off the screen at me. They don’t go down at the first tackle. They catch the ball well out of the backfield, all three of them pick people up really well in pass pro, and we watch that, and the first thing I look at on the back is what kind of protector is he on 3rd down, does he know who he has, can he block him, does he cut every time, does he stay up, what is their strengths, what is their weaknesses as pass pro and pass receivers, and they have very complete backs, which you would fully expect at Alabama.”
Alabama will take on the Bulldogs Saturday for the SEC Championship.
