A Look into the Future; 2024 Alabama Crimson Tide Preview

Another year has come for the Alabama Crimson Tide, leaving die-hard fans asking what now? After falling short in this year's College football playoff semi-final against Michigan in the Rose Bowl, a lot of fans are already setting their sights on next season and how the 2024 team can capitalize on the

unexpected but amazing success the Tide had in the 2023 season. The first thing that's buzzing around Bama nation is whether or not head coach Nick Saban will be back next season. A lot of speculation is leaning towards Saban retiring due to mainly age and yet again falling short in winning his 8th national championship and 7th at the University of Alabama. Some fans however aren't buying into the rumors that Saban will retire until he at least gets one more national championship under his belt and with next year's recruiting class coming in he has a great chance to get back on track and contend next season. I am indifferent on the topic, not wanting a legend like Saban to retire but at the same time still fully understanding that this is indeed a business and that after 17 years at the helm in Tuscaloosa, time is not on his side, no matter how much he loves the college game. As the old saying goes " Time waits on no man", whether or not whether or not Saban is head coach next season, there's still plenty to be excited about if you're an Alabama football fan. Returning guys like QBs Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson, DB Caleb Downs, and WRs Isaiah Bond and Kobe Prentice all have the campus buzzing. Pair those talents with incoming portal transfers like defensive lineman LT Overton from Texas A&M and CB

Domani Jackson from USC and that's a recipe for success that will have the Tide not missing a beat next season. With all the talent coming back next year and the incoming talent it's hard to ignore the guys departing in the transfer portal and for the NFL next year. These names include WR Jacory Brooks heading to Louisville, C Seth McLaughlin heading to Ohio State, and OL Terrence Ferguson on the OL (undecided) as well as linebackers Chris Braswell and Dallas Turner along with Corners, Terrion Arnold and Kool-Aid McKinstry all departing for the NFL. That's a lot of talent to lose in a given season for any college football team, even Alabama but make no mistake about it, the Tide will rebound next year after a hard-fought 2023 season, just like they do every year. A lot of Tide fans (including myself) just hope that Nick Saban is there leading the charge, however long this game and father time allow him to. Roll Tide!!!!!
