The hits just keep coming for Blake Sims and the Tide offense:
Three days after he threw for 445 yards and four touchdowns in the Crimson Tide’s 42-21 victory over Florida, Sims was retroactively credited with 27 more rushing yards than the 12 he had in Saturday’s stat book. That gave him 39 for the day and 484 total, putting him at No. 1 in program history for most yards in a single game.
That means the Bama offense had a day even better than first figured:
Sims’ 27 rushing yards were also added to Alabama’s team total, giving it 223 for the game and 672 total yards of offense. That vaulted the Crimson Tide from the sixth-most yards in a single game to second in program history. To break the program record, Alabama will need to top the 833 it gained against Virginia Tech in 1973.
The offensive numbers so far this year have really been mind-blowing. I think that speaks to two things: an incredibly talented roster and some nice coaching. For some perspective, just look at how last year’s offensive coordinator is faring up north.
