SEC Media Days: It’s been 6 months and Alabama still can’t accept a frustrating reality. Clemson was better
It sucks, but that game was a complete anomaly from the norm. Clemson was better on that day. They were far more prepared and ready, which isn't an excuse because Bama should of been more prepared and thats Saban and the coaches fault. Does Clemson have more talent? I dont think so. Does Clemson have a better coach? Again, I dont think so. If you play that game 10 times, do you really think Clemson is 28 points better in all of them? Do you really think Clemson wins the majority of the games? Why do I think that game was such an anomaly? Over the past decade, Bama has played numerous just as good, if not better teams and players than that Clemson team and never once was the score remotely close to what happened in January. Clemson was better, but I honestly dont think they were anywhere close to 28 points better.
A lot of love for Mizzou in these rankings. They got Kelly Bryant, sure, but am I missing something? What else is there?
True, it is one guy's opinion, but if you look elsewhere you will see that all 9 of the Bama guys on this list have also showed up on many analysts/experts mock drafts.
I thought your name 'Weagle99' referred to you graduating from there in 1999, but now I realize it's when you were born. Immature and childish. Keep it up, it'll get you places!
Did Chaney call that obvious fake punt on 4th and 11 with the game on the line?
I think Najee will be getting less carries than people think because Robinson is that good. Sanders will be the third back and be a bigger factor in the passing game, but Robinson will get more carries and have a bigger role overall.
It is a yawn for Auburn fans because yall are irrelevant. It being in Birmingham is not bad at all. More people show up and its a crazy atmosphere.
What's your point here? Oregon is way better than Duke, sure, everyone knows that. Bama would beat the brakes off either of them. Auburn would struggle with both of them.
False. We have the easiest non-conference schedule, True. What's funny about that is we play Duke, an ACC team which finished 8-5 last year, which was tied for the 4th best record in the ACC. There is no ACC team that has a tougher schedule than Bama, let alone any SEC team. The ACC has become garbage in recent years with FSU being a dumpster fire, VT falling off after Beamer left, and Miami still being irrelevant. If your second best team in the conference and only team that can give Clemson any trouble is Syracuse??? I mean come on thats laughable. At least Bama has opponents like LSU, Auburn, TAMU, UGA, hell even Miss State puts up a fight, that can challenge them a bit. Clemson will walk to the ACC champ game year after year and play a 7-5, 8-4, 9-3 team at best. I am not taking away anything from Clemson, as they would probably still finish 11-1 maybe 12-0 in the SEC, but at least they would be challenged more.
Apparently the SEC is going to be a high flying, point scoring league next year. Of the nine teams yall have done this for already, 8 of them will have better offenses next year. Crazy.
We did get too pass happy down the stretch, especially against Clemson, considering we were averaging something like 6 yards a carry against that vaunted D-line.
Who would you replace Todd Gurley with? Henry, who has the single season rushing yards record in SEC history to go with 45 career TDs? Fournette, who had close to 4,000 career rushing yards and over 40 TDs? Gurley is great but he was injured a lot as he only played 16 games over his last two seasons.
Wow, this list is SEC West heavy and for good reason. The entire first team offense is SEC West and 7 of the 11 on defense.
ehhh I feel like you are basing that off his NFL career, which was bad. His Junior year at Bama he had 24 total TDs and over 2,000 total yards. Pretty good.
Jake Fromm No. 1, 11 SEC players projected to go in Round 1 of CBS Sports’ early 2020 NFL Mock Draft
Fromm probably looks better in shorts and has gigantic hands, which is what the NFL guys like to look at.
I dont get it. I dont understand why the top prospects in Alabama rarely stay in state. LSU is not a better program than Alabama, they just simply arent. Not saying Alabama is a top tier program in hoops, but LSU isnt better.
Can we please stop talking about this? My goodness, the man coaches at Clemson. Saban is the greatest to ever do it and he still has at least 5 years left in the tank. Bring up Dabo in 3-5 years when it's actually relevant.
so your counter argument is to point out something that doesn't even relate. gotcha. And I quote: "Locking down all the Georgia Boys". 2 out of the top 10 doesn't seem like "locking" them down. Maybe you'll address the point made, but most likely you'll make a derogatory comment towards the state of Alabama and its' people like you always do.
I guess you missed my point. Bama is at the top and sure Saban wont be around in another 5-10 years, so maybe UGA passes them at some point (you'll probably have to keep waiting). You still have Clemson, who is ahead of you right now and only getting stronger. The other two, OU and Ohio State will always be good and at the top. As much as UGA fans like to beat their chest that they are one of college football's perennial powers, its just not true.
UGA is still somewhere in the 3-5 range for best current college football program. Maybe you make it to the top someday, maybe not. The latter seems more accurate, although Kirby has the tools to do it.
I am surprised as well given the current situation with the LSU bball program. He is a one and done player, most likely, so maybe he doesnt care about program stability. LSU did lose their entire team, so he'll be the immediate star.
Bama has been a powerhouse for the past decade and this is the first time we have had a truly elite QB, so I don't know why you are surprised at this. We won national championships with Greg McElroy, AJ McCarron, Jake Coker......
We know Kirby thinks the same thing. 4th and 11!
Former Alabama RB Damien Harris explains how playing for Nick Saban has him ready for Bill Belichick
That is completely false. Last year's RB class was much better than this year's class. There was no guarantee that he would of even been a 2nd rounder. You are just looking for something, anything to hate on Saban for.
So by your logic, they might as well just hold the SEC media days in say New York or maybe Des Moines. Hell what about Boise? I hear Toronto is nice this time of year. Have you ever been to Colorado Springs? Beautiful!
You sir, are a delightful human being. Bless your heart.
Charlotte is in ACC territory. Now take off your tin foil hat and move along.
Maybe Bama will finally have a coach who can live up to any expectations. We will see. Hoping for the best, but as a Bama bball fan, also preparing for the worst.
This is why LSU should of just let Wade coach through the tourney. LSU could of had a real shot at a final four with him coaching, and now everyone is leaving and LSU will fall to the way side again.
So wait, Georgia in 2028 will be playing Texas, FSU, and GT? and in 2029 will play Texas, Clemson, and GT? Thats impressive scheduling but will be very difficult.
