Many believe the Alabama football dynasty is dead again.

Alabama football has now failed to win a national championship for two straight seasons, which is tied for the longest streak of the Saban era. They will be without their generational quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, two of the best receivers to ever play Alabama football, their first-round right tackle, and two defensive backs who were drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft. They will also have to play against Georgia at home and LSU on the road in a daunting 2020 schedule.

Needless to say, many believe the dynasty is dead once again. However, they are wrong. Alabama still has two quarterbacks who could start for most teams in the country. They also have Najee Harris, one of the best running backs of the Saban era. Jaylen Waddle will see his role increase drastically as a junior, and Dylan Moses will be back to take over on defense. With all of these pieces, the Crimson Tide have a great chance to make it back to the College Football Playoff this season.

We will have to wait and see what happens, but fans should simply trust the process. Saban has gotten the Crimson Tide through plenty of bad instances. Three combined losses over two seasons should not be considered the end of a historic dynasty.

Next. Tide still dealing with racial inequality. dark

Alabama football is locked and loaded to get through this time, just like they have in the past.
