Alabama Football Countdown: 86 Days To Kick Off
We finally did it. We’re officially under 100 days until the Alabama Crimson Tide is back on the football field. After another winning season of the national championship, Nick Saban and his company are looking for a new performance in 2021.
The opening week game is against the Miami Hurricanes in Atlanta, Ga. On September 4. As it is now June 10th, we are now 86 days from the start!
Currently, no Alabama player wears the number 86. The most notable player to ever wear it – at least in Saban’s day – is former defensive lineman A’Shawn. Robinson. After a successful career at Tuscaloosa, he became a second-round pick for the Detroit Lions in 2016.
Ahead of the 2020 season, he signed a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Rams. His first year on the West Coast was not very successful, but Robinson is looking to bounce back in second year. He is still only 26 years old.
