I'm still not 100% sold on Crompton, but we'll find out against a tough South Carolina defense next week.
What I liked is how he played despite the lack of a running game. This was the first game that the running attack wasn't making plays and consistent gains, and Cro was forced to beat them through the air - and he responded with great down the field passes.
The Bama defense is much better than South Carolina's, and Hardesty and Brown will be able to run more effectively on that Front 7.
The receivers also deserve credit. If it was catchable, they caught it. The re-emergence of Denarious Moore is huge, and he absolutely abused Kareem Jackson, who I think is Bama's best CB. Stocker's catch was HUGE, and he got clobbered good by the Bama S. Seems like Gerald Jones is back to his normal self too.
Rogan and Berry played a great game too. They forced Ingram's 1st fumble of the year, Berry had tons of PD's, and Rogan went 100% against Julio Jones. I laughed at Doughie's "Berry just killed someone" post in the Gameday thread after EB knocked McElroy on his ass.
Also, thought Saban's comments on the team being "tired...playing like they're tired" were priceless. Surprised none of 'em had the flu. :D
