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.
Nick Saban candidly shares how Alabama will respond to Clemson loss, questions team motivation at end of year
Give them a month to prepare and they usually beat good teams, give them a month and they loose (see Clemson and close calls to Georgia). This better not be a trend. At the same time you can't help but raise flags. Sure Sarkisian's been there and Coach Golding's got high praises on D so far but so did the coaches last year the team didn't finish.
This is probably more of Clemson knowing Bama has an eye on Dabo if and when Saban retires. But does this also insinuates that Clemson knows Dabo has his eye on Bama job and will leave them when Bama's head coaching position gets open?
Lane Kiffin responds to Nick Saban’s comments regarding decisions some players make to jump to NFL early
Getting hurt is out of the equation because they happen all the time (see Jaylon Smith for example). But if your coach and your school's talent evaluators tell you you'll have the potential to improve your stock if you come back why wouldn't you do that?
I do wonder if he looked at the Eddie Jackson situation on where he would've been drafted if he didn't get injured. He already got a 2nd to 3rd grade owing to his "character," we can only speculate where he'll be if he came back and got hurt.
Seems to me that watching his speech has way different tone than when it's read. I wonder if Harrison watched the video and realized Nick Saban actually cared about his future.
Really rooting for Richardson to succeed on this chance he got.
So, Pete Goulding is the guy now?
Why did Houston released him again? Oh...
What if Urban joins Saban as an analyst? Hmmmn...
Pretty sure this'll be a nice conversation piece when Murray struggles against Bama, or torches Tide's defense for that matter. Til then, Murray already won. Dec 29 can't get here soon enough.
WATCH: Bleacher Report blasts Tua Tagovailoa doubters, claims there’s never been more obvious Heisman winner
Great respect for what Kyler Murray had accomplished but sorry, Oklahoma as a team has been one and the same the past 2 years. Tua's presence however, changed Alabama as a team. The run-first, smash mouth defense has been relegated on the side. And if you are looking for a Heisman moment? Tua's moment was his first touchdown at the start of the season, that twirl and sling to Jeudy. That's how everyone got into the Tua for Heisman train.
Will Jalen transfer to Maryland?
Citadel supposedly can't do squat on Bama and look what happened. That's why you play the game. Plus this is Iron Bowl. Sh*t has happened before.
Will Alabama win with Joe Burrow at QB? Will LSU offense strike fear if Tua's the QB?
I'd put ND no.1 because they've beaten 3 ranked teams regardless of what you think of Stanford, Michigan or VT. Ohio State at 2, considering Penn St is still in the AP top 10. Then UA,for a QB almost not playing 4Q and is still winning games by a good margin. And then Georgia over Clemson, having beaten a ranked South Carolina.
Najee Harris admits he struggled with lack of opportunity as freshman, returns poised for breakout season
Nah. I'm more into the other backs. Jacobs coming back from surgery and Robinson looking more like Lacy of old? It will be fun to watch.
You know something's brewing when they're still chasing QB at this point of the season.
Exactly. And the fact that every time Tua is at center he still likes to zip it out even with swarm of defenders. People notice and they can't help but make comparison.
Credit Auburn for making Hurts switch back to his run first mentality. Up until Miss St he was never challenged on his runs. Just made little strides here and there on his passing but he became predictable in the Iron Bowl. Its not Daboll's ineffective play call. They have 5 very capable running backs.
