For this, the 200th post in the short history of the Bama Blog, I give you a curious sentence that appeared at the bottom of a football story from the far off land of Louisiana.
It is especially curious because of the offensive strategy used by Alabama coach Nick Saban. The following came at the end of the story in the Daily Advertiser of Lafayette. The story is about Louisiana-Lafayette football, but it will certainly cause eyebrows to raise in Alabama. And now, the sentence in question:
“Defensive end Terrell Richardson said his younger brother, Alabama freshman running back Trent Richardson, is working at quarterback in the Crimson Tide’s Wildcat formation.”
Wildcat formation at Alabama? That’s a big departure from the pro-style offense.
