Georgia is a joke. LSU wiped the field with them in your own back yard, and your offense isn't going to be any better with that vagabond from the ACC's version of Vanderbilt. If you had lost Fromm for any length of time last year, you would have dropped games to 4 win teams...Oh, wait, you did that anyway. At home, to the same South Carolina team that Alabama beat on the road by 4 touchdowns.
When is the last time Georgia won a big game? When is the last time Alabama lost in September? I can't wait to see how hyped Georgia fans are over their transfer QB from Wake Forest, a guy who lost the job there and was worse than terrible in big games. Cochran has been wanting an on the field coaching job for years now, and despite constant staff turnover, Saban never judged him qualified for such a position.
LSU's receivers should "eat Alabama up"? I might say the same about our receivers against your db's. And before you start talking about how great Stingley is, take a look at how he fared against Devonta Smith last year. No smart Alabama fan ever takes a trip to Baton Rouge lightly. It is always the game that we circle on our calendar every year, same as it is for you guys.
Dooley was the receivers coach in Dallas for several years, under Jason Garrett. It isn't hard to see him returning to that situation, with Garret signed on as the Giant's OC.
Taulia, yes, but Tyson is apparently content to be part of the program, with eyes on coaching down the line.
LOL, this would be front page news, even in the wake of Kobe's death, if it were true.
Harris made a smart move to return. He was not in Mel Kiper's top 10 running back rankings. I cannot for the life of me understand this, given how productive he has been all 3 years at Alabama, with a career ypc average over 6. He catches passes out of the backfield as well. He would have likely been a day 3 pick, and those guys are quite often relegated to the practice squad. Another year in school, with certain preseason All-SEC honors (as well as All-American) should elevate his stock.
Real smart for a fledgling football league to not load up on former SEC players, given then penchant for SEC fans to watch football about 5x more than any other conference. I wish Sylve well, but I'm not going to tune in because of him.
Aaron Murray...never threw a pass in the NFL, and finished playing at Georgia in 2013. He broke records only because he started 4 seasons and wasn't good enough to go pro after year 3, the way Tua was. Who did you have between him and Fromm? I can't even remember. And as for Darnell Washington...he looks like he's outgrown the position already, and hasn't even stepped onto a college campus. He looks stiff and ungainly, a guy that is going to end up as a blocking tight end, or get moved to tackle.
My thoughts exactly. Tua's 3 year body of work is the best in SEC history. I'm not going to sit here and take anything away from Joe Burrow, who played at an insane level last season, seldom missing reads or throws. My question is simply why he didn't look anything like that guy the first 3 years of his career. If he had, then he would have been Ohio State's starting QB day one, and certainly not lost a competition to Dwayne Haskins. Chase Young is certainly a great prospect, but there is always a bigger need for franchise QB than anything else. If Tua were completely healthy, you could bet on there being a lot of talk about teams trading up to #2 to take whichever SEC guy was left.
The good news for LSU is that the 2019 version of Coach O. is vastly superior to the 2019 version of Fisher, and that doesn't figure to change in 2020. Fisher hasn't beaten anyone (that he wasn't supposed to) since that championship season so many years ago.
2017. They beat Auburn before falling to Alabama in the championship game. Fromm played extremely well against Alabama last year in the SECCG. I'm not sorry to see him depart early.
You'll see it soon. If some team from a blue-state were in position to take him first (Say NY or California), you know the media would cry about this. If the President wants to meet you, you show up, and respect the office. Alabama met with President Obama multiple times, and I would have been horrified if any of our guys disrespected him, even though I voted against him twice.
It is really nice to see President Trump so well-received in both Tuscaloosa (in November) and New Orleans, on Monday night. Congrats again to LSU on one of the greatest seasons in college football history, and for not following the example of various pro teams and refusing to visit a Republican president.
The only place that anyone is "3 deep with 5 star players at every position" is on the Xbox or playstation, in a 6 year old NCAA football game. That doesn't happen in the real world. And as for winning or playing for the national championship...I guess 6 times in 10 years isn't enough for a fan of a program with such a *great tradition*?
You're right about that. Tennessee is trash lately, but LSU, Georgia, Auburn are all very successful programs when you look around the nation. They may rate 2-5 or so in the SEC, but which other conference is that deep with tradition? None.
I see his record here and ATM, and I saw what his record was his final year at Florida State. He apparently didn't know that you're supposed to recruit offensive lineman, among the list of felons that you bring onto campus every year.
Are you really this stupid? Dan Mullen had the Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback at Miss State, and still couldn't beat one of our weaker teams in 2014. Be real careful about putting the word dynasty in "" "" unless you want remind everyone how biased and ignorant you are. Florida isn't anywhere near a match for the western heavyweights.
If the NCAA lets this scumbag play next season...Well, my opinion of them will be even lower, which I didn't think possible, after they let Justin Fields play for Ohio State this year. Alfano is a quitter and a malcontent. Look for him soon on "Last Chance U." after he washes out of Colorado.
When is the Chiasson shoe going to drop? Hard to imagine they have two LB's leaving early for the draft and he hasn't moved with them.
These final polls make me wonder if anyone (that voted) actually saw Georgia play this season. I've never seen a less-impressive team finish #4 in my lifetime. Lose to a 4 win USC team at home. Scoreless tie with Kentucky midway through 3rd quarter. 6 point home win over Texas A&M. Then skull-dragged by LSU in the SECCG.
How has Coach O. done against Georgia lately? Seems like I can recall a couple of 20+ point wins.
I am the last guy you can ever accuse of being an Auburn fan, but feel free to explain why Leach and Stoops belong ahead of him, and particularly Jimbo Fisher. Fisher has done absolutely nothing in his two years in the SEC, and left Florida State in shambles. Malzahn has gone 3-3 vs Alabama and Georgia in the last 3 seasons, with one SEC West championship, so he is obviously doing something right.
I really believe Clemson beat our best team last year in the championship game. It was Clemson's best team as well, certainly better than this year, or the two Watson teams.
Alabama is better than Georgia, Oregon and Florida as well.
McClain didn't play this decade. Ingram and Dareus played in only 2010, which would explain their omission if he didn't have Julio Jones so high.
Trent Richardson at #25 is nothing short of a mortal insult. Why can't you focus on what he did at Alabama, and ignore his NFL failures? Trent is no worse than the third best RB in school history. He carried the 2011 team to the National championship, playing for the least-talented Alabama offense of the entire Saban era.
I've got to think Jefferson is gone. His stock cannot get any higher than it already is. Playing without Burrow and splitting catches with two other first round picks isn't going to help him much next year. I've seen Chiasson in the first round of several recent mocks, and Delpit is obviously a goner. Have seen him mocked to the Cowboys a lot lately. God knows they need help at safety.
You're exactly right about that. They have to be tired of the Sooners taking it on the chin from the SEC champ every season, playing only one competitive game in 3 attempts.
