“I’ve seen a lot of disturbing signs, Stephen A. [Smith]”The most I’ve seen is a bad track for Alabama,” Paul Feinbaum said on “First Take” Tuesday. They are going in the wrong direction.
“I mentioned it earlier about penalty kicks. This is an undisciplined team, Stephen A. And if I can tell you this without having the stroke, this is not a well-trained team. I know who the coach is. It’s Nick Saban., but this is the time. The third this year that he’s outdone maneuvering and outperforming his coaching by the other guy. Alabama could have easily lost three games.”

“It took a field goal in the last second against Texas,” Weinbaum continued. “He stopped in front of A&M. And we saw what happened on Saturday. That’s the wrong way and this team is missing on all cylinders. The offensive line is weak. Defensive high school, where Nick Saban coach Stephen A. got burned in that game. I saw it.
“I don’t know where he’s going. It’s not over. They still have a path. They still have Nick Saban. But you’re telling me: How does he get out of this now?”
