His stat line may not show it every night (though it obviously did last night), but he's the real MVP on this team. With him in the lineup this team doesn't drop home games to Arkansas and Tennessee.
Speaking of those two losses, it's a real shame that Bama lost those with Herb out because they would be a virtual lock for the tournament currently with those two wins. As it stands, Bama's still got some work to do. Can't lose any of the 3 home games remaining (Texas A&M, South Carolina, Vanderbilt) and need to win 1 road game (Ole Miss, Miss State, Missouri). Not an impossible task, but certainly not an easy one for this team either.
