Is the Heisman contender worried about taking on the Crimson Tide on the road? It certainly doesn’t sound like it.

Corral said the following Monday during a teleconference, according to Outkick:

We’re not worried…I should rephrase that so you don’t take it the wrong way. We’re not worried about how we’re playing. We’re worried about how we handle each practice individually. We’re worried about today. We’re not worried about Alabama, even though they are a great team.

I know people will try to dig into his comments and hype them up as bulletin board material, but I understand where Corral is coming from.

Worrying about Alabama isn’t going to get the Rebels anywhere. All Corral can do is take care of business on his end.

He can control what he can control and the rest will work itself out. There’s zero point in worrying about Alabama’s team. They’re going to do what they do.

It’s his job to make sure he executes his job at a higher level.

I’m still blown away that the spread for the game is -14.5 in favor of Alabama. That’s a shocking line to me.

I don’t think there’s any chance the game is a blowout.

Make sure to tune in at 3:30 EST on CBS this Saturday. This game is going to be pure electricity.
