I see you Crean. I am starting to look for a seat on the bandwagon again.
Yes,Texas,please take Bruce Pearl so maybe some of these Metro Atlanta kids will go to Georgia instead of Auburn and back years ago to Tennessee when Pearl was there.
In the NFL, the 2001 Rams with the greatest show on turf, lost to the Patriots in a low scoring game, 20-17. The 2007 Patriots set the NFL scoring record and lost to the 9-7 Giants in a low scoring Super Bowl, 17-14. The 2020 Chiefs with their "explosive" offense lost in the Super Bowl, 31-9. There are other examples in the NFL where the "all-everything" offenses were shut down by dominant, down linemen pass rushers. College defenses will catch up to college offenses in due time.
I respect his candor. There are teams that come along from time to time where their opponents best hope is to keep them from scoring 50. 2019 LSU and 2020 Bama were such teams. Will there be such a team in 2021?
For his sake, I hope he goes in the first round. For my sake, I hope he falls to the Falcons in the second round.
Cody, I doubt what Saban has done at Bama will ever be surpassed by any Coach. To continue to lose coordinators and other staff every year and still remain among the top 3 in recruiting every year and be in the hunt for National Championships every year is legendary! It's just not accurate to say Kirby's sales pitch falls short with the collection of talent he's gathered unless he's pitching National Championships. He's done exceptionally well in developing players for the NFL. Developing for the NFL is more important to these kids than winning national championships but they have to say that so they will be deemed as "team players". I doubt Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray, Jalen Hurts and Spencer Rattler went to Oklahoma to win national championships. Lincoln Riley's QB development is what drew them. I hope my Dawgs win another Natty soon but if they don't, kids are still going to go to Georgia and still go to the NFL. Much respect to Bama!!! Go DAWGS!!!!!
Dvhill100, I'm speechless! Your point is well made but the imagery in my head is disturbing. Maybe too much Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom when I was a kid.
How did I mistakenly post an incomplete post twice? Let me try one more time. How about this? He was a UGA commit under Richt and went on the to make one of the greatest catches I’ve ever seen. Not in the Natty game as a true freshman but a HIGHLY contested catch against Eric Stokes back in October. That was unbelievable!!!!

If you can play, NFL scouts will find you. Exposure is not only found in FBS schools. If Deion gets 3 or 4 consecutive years of 3 and 4 star recruits,Jackson State will get some television time. I wish him well except when he recruits kids my Dawgs want, LOL!
Watson is not the problem. The problem is the owner never should have said they would consult with Watson on who to hire and then lie to him. Players are labor and it's the owners fault for giving them management/ownership level power.
As much as he tormented my Dawgs, I'm happy he left the Gators and I'd be surprised if he doesn't succeed in Jacksonville immediately. With Trevor Lawrence who I believe is ready to play from day one but not carry the team and with a ton of cap space for free agents, it would not shock me to see a 9 win team in 2021 and knocking on the wild card door. He has much more control than most any other first time NFL coach in that he gets to choose the GM and other executive personnel from scouting to everything else. The owner said he wants his team to be coach-centric and from watching the press conference, Meyer is in control.
Please come to the Falcons and I win twice as a Dawgs and Falcons fan, LOL!
They very well may do that but OSU's passing offense is no slouch either. I think people made too much of their struggles in their last two regular season games. With their starting receivers back, Bama is going to have to defend a top flight passing attack too.
Oh yeah, I got your left-handed compliment. Well played. I'm not a betting man but what you're proposing is intriguing. I think you're right because Najee will be targeted more in the passing game than Sermon. Najee is the best back in the country in my opinion and I can't believe he was not first team All-American. He was second team behind the kid at Iowa State and the kid at Buffalo.
6th best? Wow, that's about as absurd as Najee Harris being second team All-American.
@Slak, I don't know if Pollock came from the same financial background as a whole lot of the kids do who are choosing money over school loyalty. Christian McCaffrey didn't play in Stanford's bowl game and I don't recall any talk of him quitting and he came from a wealthy family. Is it possible he saw to great of a risk to play in Stanford's non-championship bowl game?
Most coaches who leave for other jobs are 95% of the time still under contract with their current teams. Most head coaches do not coach on a contract in its final year because they usually get extended with 2 years left so yes you can make a case they "quit" on the players and schools. I don't see it that way neither do I see post season opt outs as quitting. I am not a fan of opting out during the season like some kids did. Pollock should walk in these kids shoes first before labeling them quitters. Let him experience their financial background and then realize that come April, the signing bonus will be more money than anyone in the family has ever seen, IF you don't get hurt. Is avoiding being labled a quitter by people who don't financially support you more important than "securing the bag" for the people who do?
I believe Bama wins but I don't think they dominate OSU's offense. OSU is legit in the trenches and their skill players are too. Bama wins in a high scoring game.
How is a 17 point win not a blow out especially considering Bama was up by 24 with less than a minute left?
@Boondocksaint,your last paragraph should be immortalized!! Well played!!
I want to believe Houston would not have made that statement if he knew how many starters were going to opt out. At least I hope he would not have. I am an SEC guy through and through but I also realize OU, Clemson, OSU are no slouches either.
He has a valid point. Clemson is the better team and more complete on both sides of the ball than any team in the playoff. If my opinion mattered, Texas A&M would be in OSU's slot because they played 10 games and their only loss was to BAMA.
@CLVOL I am an SEC guy so I definitely want BAMA to win and I believe they will. That said, BAMA's defense is not the juggernaut of past years mainly because they don't have a great pass rush. Notre Dame is much improved from years past on the line of scrimmage and I think they will score some points and it still may not be close as you suggest. The Dawgs scored 24 with Stetson Bennett at QB and very easily could have been more. Ian Book is exponentially better than Bennett.
I doubt anyone would make the argument that Hurts is the better pure passer but it's hard to say who will have the better QB in 5 years. Tua will throw more and will have better passing stats but will passing stats mean he's the better QB? I hope they both excel for their teams! I just hate they excelled against my Dawgs.
Come on, there’s a big disparity in talent between P5 schools and G5. I wish there was a way they could play an SEC schedule in 2021 for just that year and then let’s see how unfair the committee is. In the East, they may beat Vandy but absolutely no one else and they won’t beat anyone in the West. It’s one thing to beat a P5 school on any given Saturday but it’s a whole other thing to line up against superior talent EVERY Saturday. That’s what it would be for a G5 school for 12 consecutive Saturdays.
