Some things about college football get lost in translation, but for the most part, they seem to understand the sport pretty well.
Just a sample of the story:
The patchwork-tattooed young man who calls himself the “Monstar”, and is rated as the strongest member of the team for his ability to bench press 272kg, was considered key in getting the Tide across the line against the Georgia Bulldogs at the Georgia Dome.
Williams’ right knee gave way early in the third quarter and he needed to be helped off the ground.
Crimson Tide, based in Tuscaloosa under legendary college coach Nick Saban, looked as though they would have to play without Williams, their nose guard, a key defensive player whose job is to line up, nose-to-nose, across from the ball in scrimmages, and stop any offensive run down the centre.
