With one day standing in between now and the Ole Miss-Alabama game, Chris Dodson of Bama Hammer was gracious enough to give me some insight into their football team and the matchup tomorrow in Tuscaloosa.
Michael Quirk: Alabama is fourth in the nation in takeaways. How has the defense been able to do that and what should Ole Miss expect on Saturday as it pertains to forcing turnovers?
Chris Dodson: Alabama is an opportunistic team. Their defense will force turnovers and the offense will capitalize on them. The Ole Miss offense has to take care of the ball if they want to have success against this Alabama D. This Alabama defense, though it’s definately lost some depth from losing players to the NFL, is still as stout, if not, more so than it was last year, mainly thanks to players like CJ Mosley, who has 22 tackles in 4 games, and Ed Stinson, who is not getting a lot of attention, even though he leads the team in tackles for loss with 5.
