(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Alabama isn’t slowing down this season, as Nick Saban’s squad continues their dominance. However, not everyone is sold on the Crimson Tide this year. Well, at least one person isn’t sold.While their competition hasn’t been great, defeating Texas A&M by 22 points is certainly impressive. After all, Tua Tagovailoa’s performance was jaw-dropping, as he threw for 387 yards and four touchdowns.Well, one AP Top 25 voter isn’t ready to crown Alabama as the top team in the nation just yet. It turns out that Soren Petro doesn’t even have the Crimson Tide as the second-best team.From 247sports.com:Soren Petro, host of The Program on Sportsradio 810 in Missouri, has ranked Alabama behind Clemson and Georgia since the season began and is not changing his mind this week following the Crimson Tide’s convincing win over then 22nd-ranked Texas A&M.There a few concerns with Alabama entering this season, but they look downright scary on both sides of the ball. Forget about the days of the Tide winning on defense alone, they now have an elite offense.If defeating the Aggies wasn’t enough to persuade Petro, then it’s highly unlikely that beating Louisiana-Lafayette at home will do the trick.Perhaps Alabama will gain full respect on Nov. 3, as they face LSU in what might be the best showdown in the SEC.
