Sports Analysis from John Longshore
By Glenn Halbrooks


CBS 8 Sports Analyst John Longshore was on CBS 8 News at 6:00 to talk about how both Alabama and Auburn can rebound after losses in important games Saturday.

Longshore says Bama probably underestimated Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, especially his abilities to pass the ball. Longshore says even with Alabama's loss, it's possible, though not likely, that the Crimson Tide can return to the BCS National Championship Game.

Auburn is coming off a shutout loss to Georgia and must face Alabama A&M, which Longshore says has some good athletes. He says the Tigers have no confidence, no leadership and the season is already over because the team likely has a lame-duck coach and won't be going to a bowl game.
