No --- Alabama's D-Line began dominating our O-Line -- giving our QB no time and thus our receivers MAY have been open, but we could not effectively get the ball to them consistently.
If anything, we became one dementional --- all pass and Bama just teed off on our O-line.
So, man we got beat ...

There is no "take away" from the Furman game that has ANY impact on the Alabama game.
