You are very on point with your number 3. People always say he's not a coach anymore, just happens to have great personnel around him. It's demeaning to other coaches if you think it that way because it means they can't evaluate people. But even if that is true, it will still take immense know how in coaching to win, and Saban has not not only mastered how to evaluate his coaches and assistants but has also mastered how to handle the game of football week after week.
I'd like to think that someone pushed him to join as a walk on and try to learn as much from the coaches. And then leave once they think they've got enough try to practice it elsewhere. I mean, I'd probably do that route knowing I don't have a shot at the depth chart. And to that I'm starting to think that's what Paul Tyson is doing too, the learning part I mean, even if you know you can transfer and actually start elsewhere.
Except for that one South Carolina game, UGA's trajectory is better than when Clemson was Clemsoning. But, they've acquired way better QBs recently and that's the difference. If, after JT, they continue to get quality QBs every recruitment cycle, they'll be in good shape.
As a recruit, what's the intention on recording your conversation with Saban?
Writing was on the wall. Made him a healthy scratch... In lieu of 2 backs that didn't reach 50 yards.
Analyst, assistant, that's game. On field coach, please no.
Rich Rodriguez, Greg Marshall...
Kid's very motivated. I hope he succeeds big time.
The biggest coaching loss of the Nick Saban era? Cole Cubelic explains why Scott Cochran’s departure is compounded by loss of spring
But Cole, you can also say that Georgia probably had a thought of squeezing every drop of this hire to sell it to recruits. But because of the possible cancellation of football this year, by the time this is over, a lot will already be talked about Bama's new coaches and the Sport Science Center will be well-established already. And (granting Rhea and Ballou will make a lot of difference on UA's athletes) Cochran's departure ain't gonna be that significant of an impact in relation to the program.
Was he the guy who Alabama sees as an offensive lineman but wanted to play defense?
Whooops. Every recruiting analysts' crystal ball a little foggy I guess.
One thing I noticed during that game is the Clark is nowhere near Henry whenever he has the ball. And yet he's the one opening his mouth like he did all the work.
Rapid Reaction: Behind Jake Fromm, George Pickens and stingy defense, UGA beats Baylor in Sugar Bowl
I hope these showings from the Big 12 are enough to make next year's committee second guess about including their teams into the playoffs.
You think Kirby's going too far in tring to annoy the hell out of Saban? But when the news came last week about this SEC school not named by Young's father I never thought it was GA I actually thought it was Auburn.
Well, if, say, Fromm is running OSU's offense and Fields is at Georgia, who do you think will flourish more this year?
I'll just leave the question here. Why?
Maybe he'll go to Colorado too?
Really cool thing to do for Dylan. Wish for these guys' speedy recovery.
These players doesn't have that stigma that fans have, maybe a few players will care that it's 0-8. But for sure all that's in their minds right now, specially the younger guys, is they're going into Tuscaloosa as the better team, so that psychological edge is for naught. Also, if Derrick Brown leads Bama's front 7, Burrow has no chance. But fact is he's not. Bama have elite players, but no matter how elite you are, if you have little or no experience on big games and no cohesion at that, LSU can poke holes on the defense and take advantage of them. You can't really predict the outcome of this year's game, that's why it's so fun. Can't wait for tomorrow.
What if FSU and Arkansas swapped coaches?
What? No! You said he's the next best thing! Why are you replac... What? No!
So who did Clemson beat in his opinion to deserve #4? And one spot over Wisconsin?
Does Scott Woodward have a hand on this?
OLine, OLine, Oline. Fix the Offensive Line. And release the "Juice."
Paul do you really think Saban was sitting on the film room on a Sunday evening, then suddenly got wide-eyed and giddy-upped his way to a television to see Jalen take the field, probably jumping up and down when Hurts completed his throw?? It seems that's something I'd do or even you would do. Why can't you just believe the guy's statement?
Still OU allowed 31 points. I'm very curious if Jalen actually called out his coaches during his interview when he said they've got to do better (like "we sucked at defense man").
He'll definitely put up a lot if numbers. Him and Fields may have great chance to win the Heisman this season because I'm into thinking Mac Jones will have a lot of reps and Tua may not play in some if not most of 4th quarters again.
