Bama Says Ohio State Has SEC Speed
Alabama still has a couple of more days to prepare for their playoff game against Ohio State.
Bama and the Buckeyes play on Thursday night in New Orleans.
Tide defensive coordinator Kirby Smart says Ohio State’s offense might be comparable in the SEC to Mississippi State’s.
Smart was quick to add that Ohio State is not one of those slow, plodding Big Ten teams.
"Oh yeah. No doubt. Very comparable to the SEC. You see it on film. They’ve got track guys out there running at receiver. They’ve got fast guys. They’ve got speed at every position."
Added Bama defensive back Cyrus Jones,"You can see it when you watch film. They have speed like an SEC team. I think it’s going to be like any other team we’ve played this year in our league. You’ve got to respect them. Respect their athletes. And respect their physicality because I think they’ve got good backs who run hard."
