This guy was the weakest link in the secondary all year. I don't see how in the world he deems himself NFL ready. He'll be a day 3 pick if he is lucky. Alabama players usually make better draft entry decisions than this, but one that was part of the program only one year apparently didn't pay attention.
Jennings has no business going pro early. He's not even a day 2 draft pick.
Yeah, I guess we're breaking rules, just like Dexter Lawrence. Funny how Renfro had nothing to say last year, when First round pick, Minkah Fitzpatrick, erased him from the game entirely, until their last garbage drive, when he caught a few meaningless passes.
He'll be moving on after next year as well. No one likes working long for the most abrasive and overrated coach in all of football.
Trayvon Mullen declared for the draft yesterday, as did Tre Lamar. I've never seen any team lose their top 5 defensive lineman and not miss a beat the following season. Plus their two top linebackers and their top corner. Alabama didn't lose as much off their 2017 champs, and it bit them square in the butt this year. Stop talking like Clemson is immune.
Clemson has always belonged in the SEC, but was too craven to sign up for the big leagues each and every time the offer was extended. Ditto for Florida State. Those two are in football-starved states, and simply should not be competing against eternal losers from Maryland, Massachusetts, and the basketball powers. Dabo Swinney is without a doubt the man solely responsible for preventing 4 consecutive national championships at Alabama, and if he'd been more successful at commercial real estate (or accepted Saban's offer to join the staff years ago) we wouldn't be having this conversation. Alabama looked horrible other night because the defense was totally inept. Let's wait and see how Dabo rebuilds his entire D next year before calling them the new dynasty.
29-0. 8 in a row.
I'd be overjoyed if Leatherwood gave us two more seasons and was then a first round pick.
Glad someone finally realizes that Alabama's DL vs Clemson's OL (who they manhandled last year, and its the same guys back) is the bigger question mark than Clemson's DL vs Alabama's OL.
Someone needs to update their ratings if Quinnen Williams is a 90. Those same Clemson OL guys (that I see rated highly on that page) were tossed around like ragdolls by Alabama last year.
You'll hopefully get your degree, and 1 out of 2 isn't so bad.
Parkey missed a lot of kicks this year and probably won't be back. I wish the "ice the kicker" time out would be done away with. He was perfect on the first kick and of course shanked the one after the time out.
These fans need to realize that they open against Alabama next year and will get their teeth kicked in.
No doubt in my mind that Alabama beats Auburn if Tua steps in. 5.6 ypc on the ground against Barn and Daboll still found a way to lose. He'd do well at Miss State, come to think of it.
I saw Lawrence hit a few big plays to Justyn Ross after Notre Dame's DB's all started dropping, but I didn't really consider it "lighting them up". Not hard to hit a wide open 5 star WR (that runs by a 220 pound white guy transfer from Navy) manned up in the slot.
He's exactly right though. Clemson's #3 corner missed the Notre Dame game and isn't expected to play against Alabama, but has anyone heard a peep about that? I found out about it only because the Bamaonline writer had a conversation with a counterpart from Clemson's site. These sort of things simply aren't discussed, nor is the fact that Clemson was ripped for a combined 940 passing yards by ATM and South Carolina. We're only supposed to nitpick every perceived Alabama weakness, not wonder just how the hell Clemson's OL is going to block Quinnen Williams.
ESPN is scrapping the Coaches Film Room segment for national title, and fans aren’t happy about what’s replacing it
ESPN has been in the business of making dumb decisions and alienating their fan base for years now. ESPN knows that viewership is down for their travesty of a Monday night crew, so why not force them on college football fans, in hopes of ensuring that they never consider tuning in?
The officials are waiting as well. Waiting to screw you guys again.
I think the bigger question is "How are Clemson's DB's going to stop Alabama's WR's?" 430 passing yards to Kellen Mond. 510 passing yards to Jake Bentley.
‘Get the hell out of here’: Kirk Herbstreit doesn’t like Deandre Baker hanging out on UGA sideline for Sugar Bowl
I don't know why so many people dislike Herbstreit. He doesn't play favorites and tells it like it is, but half of the SEC fans talk like he's in Danny Kanell's class.
UCF has been put to rest, their 15 minutes up. They are now replaced by 4 loss Texas, who will declare that they are "back" for 8 months. The preseason predictions will oblige, and they'll be top 10, if not top 5, which is pretty rare air for a team coming off a 4 loss season.
Is that why the SEC rules the NFL draft every year? Because the Pac 12 and Big 12 are on equal footing? Just because your school yet again took it on the chin as the favorite doesn't mean that the conference as a whole is diminished. I could see Georgia's dismal performance coming from a mile away. No one wants to play the consolation game after coming so close to the show.
We all pulled for LSU today, so he's picking an odd time to make that tired of crack.
Precisely. Georgia lost the right to cry about anything after this dismal showing.
I cannot wait to see LegendDD2 crawl out from under his rock in a few weeks, probably at signing day, when he'll declare Georgia's signing class the best in the nation.
Is that the same Wolfman that was all butt-hurt early in the season, when Drew Lock wasn't rated as a better QB than Tua? He declared that Tua wasn't even an NFL prospect, and that Lock was the #1 pick in the draft.
Matt Leinart has apparently forgotten that Alabama dominated Clemson last year, and that defensive front (Including Dexter Lawrence) was handled by this same offensive line. Clemson is stout against the run, but hardly elite at rushing the passer. He states that he likes Clemson in this game "because Trevor Lawrence is a better passer than Kelly Bryant last year". Apparently he's forgotten that Alabama has upgraded at QB as well.
They played two SEC teams: Texas A&M (should have lost) who had 430 yards passing. South Carolina (just shut out by Virginia) 510 yards passing. Quite honestly, I feel more confident about this matchup with Clemson than any of the previous 3.
I read that he wanted better facilities and more money than the school was willing to pay. Why would they fire him? They are consistently good (albeit never great).
Butch would be better off going home to work for Rich Rod at WV as an assistant than he would be joining Locksley at hopelessly outmatched Maryland, which has been the rumor.
