I like it when folks come after our head basketball coach and they immediately get NO before they can finish asking if he's available. "My Home is in Alabama."
Georgia gets Clemson. Win, lose or draw they live in the east. GaTech being a power 5 program has been debated for some time now. Florida getting BAMA and LSU would be the most daunting in the east for my money. Georgia loses to Clemson, so what? Florida loses to BAMA and LSU its curtains.
Branden has 2 National championship rings on his hand to sound down what needs to sound down. Guys now going into his 6th year of illegibility and 3rd head coach. Stay tuned for next year's article when he compares handshakes.
For recruits or results? In the SEC, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
I don't think Kiffin having a top 15 defense is the critical issue here either. Not continuing to have the absolute worst defense in power 5 college football might be.
Sometimes you have to just shake your head at the desire at times to try to make a salient comment the hard way by these sport's guys. How many people, who seriously follow recruiting, wouldn't jump at the chance to swap their running back room with ALABAMA?
Why don't you explain to the world how Justin Field and that buckeye defense that gave up 52 points were better than Bama?
Did Ryan Day suddenly go out and decide to get him some WRs after the ALABAMA beatdown? These guys would be in Columbus regardless of the score. BAMA defeated these boys by having the best OL, QB, WRs, RBs, defense. Oh, and by having the greatest head coach that has walked the sidelines this generation. Recruit you some of that.
So coach Saban sees more potential in Gramham as a recruiter and position coach than Tennessee? Yet Heupel is hemorrhaging through the transfer portal with 21 players and counting. Doesn't take long to figure out why.
"Football is cyclical." So is Halley's Comet. Some cycles take longer than others.
That sounds perpetual enough. Just keep being you.
You better have a few coaches that can recruit the landscape and understands the Power T tradition partner. We already took Gillespie and Jay Graham. If Heupel doesn't get it, coach Saban does, and then some.
Just keep counting those chickens. Nobody and I sincerely mean nobody, does it better.
Dude, there is Georgia and there isn't a team in the LEAST division with a prayer of a chance to get to the SECCG much less the playoff.
Just wow, can the EAST possibly be anymore LEAST?
That BAMA beatdown was a bayou bludgeon of biblical proportions. One of our best 3 point shooters, Shackelford, had an off night. I'm just saying, we can do better.
Steele is the man, that should be painfully obvious to everyone. Probation, more transfers, and scholarship reduction are also coming. The power struggle in the BOT and the NCAA tone-deaf Chancellor promise many more missteps along the way.
Sure they have. Roy Kramer and Fat Phil made a bargain with the devil to mitigate damage. What you are now watching is PAYDAY.
If Golding needs traveling assistance, I know a nice shortcut from Houston to Austin.
Coach Bryant is the "Babe Ruth" of college football. The next Barry Bonds that passes him won't touch that legacy. If You want the very best answer to this comparison, listen to coach Saban. He was just asked this again after the buckeye beatdown. Apparently, sportswriters find his recent comments about coach Bryant irrelevant.
It's hard to believe that this writer doesn't know that it is a very real possibility that Ohio State's 2 best D-lineman are out with COVID. Including the so-called best defensive lineman in college football, Togaia and Garrett being the other. You can counter that you don't like to speculate but after all both fan bases have discussed this week the buckeyes are missing these guys and may not have a kicker. The bigger problem with what I just read is that speculating about Malachi Moore and LaBryan Ray's availability was happily discussed in the great "think Piece." Can's see where COVID causalities are to be treated any differently than regular injuries? If you ain't in Miami today and on that field when the whistle blows, does it really matter?
Smart has been one of the most conservative coaches in the SEC by far. He desperately wants to play to his defense. His choices were predicated on that conservative philosophy. First and foremost, Smart has to evolve and stay aggressive, even when it starts costing him on the defensive side, which it will. With the spread offense comes the spread defense.
Smart has been anything but when it comes to handling the QB room these past 5 seasons. That was more the singular point. With that much talent standing on the sidelines every season there is going to be continued criticism, and well earned, in this playoff or bust world we now live in.
This may be a jolt to the system, but the Lord really doesn't care who our favorite football team is. Superstition is the only way he gets in the conversation, to begin with.
Kirby and Darth Gator should get together this offseason and console each other. They both get to play "what if" we had played our best player in the biggest games of the year. Un-Freakin'-Believable.
I agree. Golding needs to just keep this defense on the road to improvement. It's the only thing that feels like a potential hurdle at this point.
Much like Custer, "they got it coming."
Golding is the DC and I'm happy to credit him with more zone and simpler adjustments that he promised for 2 preseasons was coming. But it's probably coach Saban he needs to keep impressing. And that measuring stick will only get pulled out, big time, after our playoff run. Come on, what did you really think? It is ALABAMA.
