The 2019 season was a failure by Alabama’s standards.

The Crimson Tide did not reach the College Football Playoff for the first time since the system’s 2014 inception, and they were relegated to a non-New Year’s Six bowl game for the first time since the 2010 season. On top of that, the Tide, as it always does, lost a host of key contributors to the draft: Tua Tagovailoa, Henry Ruggs III, Jerry Jeudy, Xavier McKinney, and Jedrick Wills.
