Sports Analysis from John Longshore


By CBS 8 News

CBS 8 Sports Analyst John Longshore was on CBS 8 News at 6:00 to talk about the questions surrounding Alabama and Auburn with less than two weeks to go before they start the football season.

Longshore says that while many polls have Alabama ranked in the top three, there are questions about whether the Crimson Tide is solid at running back and wide receiver. He says if quarterback A.J. McCarron gets hurt during the season, there's no one behind him.

As for Auburn, Longshore says he feels the coaches already know who'll be the starting quarterback, even if they haven't said so publicly. Longshore expects Kiehl Frazier to get the starting spot.
