Interesting. How long has Saban been at Alabama? In that time how many Home and Away series has Alabama scheduled? Not many at all...Seems like Saban doesn't like playing those away games. Makes me wonder if he agreed to this game because he knows he won't be there to coach it?
Finebaum is right. Wilson is just wishing out-loud. He knows Bama has no chance of pulling Kirby from Georgia.Georgia is and will continue to be Bama's biggest challenge in the SEC and Wilson knows it. Georgia will only continue to get better and better. Wishing for something different won't do anything to stop it....
Gump,you have either lost your mind, or you actually think anybody will buy that total load of you know what...All Kirby did was completely out coach the man on the other side.The Officials completely blew that game. They kept Bama in the game. Otherwise, Smart wins by 10-17. You know it. Everybody knows it. Saban got bailed out.Kirby will beat Saban soon....
It will be Georgia for the East. The only thing left to decide is who comes in a respectable second.As far as the East closing the gap on the West, I wouldn't doubt that as a real possibility. Face it, the West has been Alabama and Auburn for the last two years. The rest are pretenders. That could change but Georgia is already on par with any team in the Wes. All it would take is for one more East team to clime into the top 10 and the East would have closed the gap. At least for the top two teams in the division.
Would Saban allow Hurts to transfer to another SEC team?I think he needs to pick an option team. He simply can't pass good enough in a pro-style offense...
Clemson Don, I would take Fromm over Clemson's starter from last year. Fields and Lawrence would have to be a wash at this point.Sometimes 2 is better than 3. If Clemson has 3 who are good enough to start for other programs, how long before one transfers? Fromm and Fields aren't going anywhere anytime soon. UGA likely has the best 1-2 QB talent in CFB...
BamaTime, Hurts was completely shut down by UGA's defense in the NCG. If not for bringing in another QB, it could have easily been a blowout.Nobody, not even Bama's No.1 defense ever came close to shutting down Fromm. Tua looked good for a half. He came in as largely an unknown quantity, how could UGA prepare? How good will he be after defenses get to study his game?You would trade Hurts for Fields in a New York minute. It is not even close. Hurts is an athlete with sub par accuracy trying to play QB...
Connor, good take on UGA. I think the defense will be better than many expect.Fields looks like a bigger version of a young Deshaun Watson. Who has more QB talent than UGA?
Lets consider that both Hurts and Tagovailoa stay at Bama for the next year, and Fromm and Fields both stay at Georgia for the year.I would take Fromm and Fields over Hurts and Tagovailoa and it wouldn't be a close decision. Hurts was exposed in the NCG. Fields looks like the next Deshaun Watson, and Fromm has already proven himself.
Anybody who doesn't already know the QB battle is over in Tuscaloosa, is either not paying attention or is spinning the best possible narrative for Saban. It's already over, and it's not even close...
Maybe the list isn't a top 10, as in No.1 being best and No.10 being last, but I would have to list D’Andre Swift above Cam Martin.Swift has a chance to be truly elite, and he proved it in the biggest games as a true freshman. Martin is undersized and didn't even merit much playing time in the SECCG, when Auburn needed another back the most...
Georgia's hardest games: LSU, Auburn, SC.LSU- on the road, likely at night. Auburn- closest to UGA's talent. SC will be a tough environment and it's early, but it won't matter, Dawgs have too much talent...
With Pittman's O-line, look for the Dawgs to produce two 1000 yard backs again in 2018. That line is going to be legit...
Ellis, I agree. I really think Kirby went conservative in the SC game, should have kept the foot down.SC has the home field. It's an early game and always SC's second biggest regular season game of the year. I won't be surprised if it's closer than last year, but the Dawgs should get it done.
Michael Wayne Bratton wrote a UGA article: Don't hand UGA the East just yet.Funny how I don't see UGA fans losing their minds over a UGA article that points out several potential pitfalls to the Dawgs 2019 prospects...Some of you Alabama and Auburn fans need to quit acting like delicate snowflakes. Besides, nobody expects Auburn to win anything this year. They have to go to Georgia and Alabama. Also, they don't have a RB who's capable of breaking into the third string at Georgia or Alabama. The bad news, this will give Malzahn his excuse.
Jake Fromm will easily make 3000 passing. The UGA receiving corps is deeper and more talented than any since 2012. The O-line may be the best in the SEC, and Fromm now knows the offense.Jarrett Stidham should have good passing numbers, partially because Auburn may lack a true power back. They may have to be a pass first team, or at least be more balanced.
BamaTime, I'll take that effect. Seems to be completely positive, Kirby's on top of the recruiting world, again! Saban has had to try to adjust because of The Kirby Effect.Saban escaped the NCG by the skin of his teeth, and several blown calls, and it's Saban who's seemingly playing catch-up. Totally positive...
I almost feel sorry for those new coaches that Saban hired. Can Saban and Co. keep pace with Smart and UGA on the recruiting trail in 2019?Saban is likely trying to tell his new coaches how Kirby used to do it, when he was here... And here we go again, Kirby has his Dawgs ranked No.1 in America, with Bama trailing in the SEC. Talk about pressure....
Kirby just got another great one from Tennessee (No.3 player). Puts Dawg's back up to No.1 in recruiting.Saban must be losing his mind. I almost feel bad for all those new coaches he brought in. He's probably telling them how Kirby used to do it ( recruiting) and trying to get them up to speed. Can Bama match UGA's pace?
What's a matter, Charles? Don't you know, you can't buy a first-team All-SEC selection.
TruVol, Boxing is one of the best ways to stay in shape...Your weird analysis won't do your Vols any good when Zeus is running over your your hapless team. Get over it.You do know, they are actually starting to write a few Tennessee articles now that spring practice is starting?
redsox2004 - Well, it looks like Georgia's going to be good for a while, so at least you will get to watch Zamir do his thing. That is, if you can get over the UGA Red and Black.
Fromm had his team one play away in the NC game as a True Freshman. He guided his team through the whole season. That game had a lot of controversial momentum killing calls that went against Georgia.Jake Fromm finished No.8 in CFB for QB rating. Alabama had the nations best defense. Fromm did more than enough. Make of it what you will.
Mine: 1) Jake Fromm: Came up big in the biggest games as a true freshman. 2) Drew Lock: Potential. He is the offense and gets no help from his D. 3) Jarrett Stidham: Failed, didn't even come close in ''SECCG'' . 4) Jake Bentley: Much like Fromm, but not much talent around him. 5) Tua: unproven. Might be the best of them all. Might not? Not enough reps. 6) Hurts: Great against lesser defenses. Not against good defenses.
Keep up the hard work, Zamir. Can't wait to see you in UGA Red & Black.
17, No,I have no problem with my team losing. If they get beat, then they got beat.When the officials give too many calls to one team it becomes obvious. Yeah, I have a problem with that.Funny, how you Bama fans know your team got away with one, and are so touchy about it.
Tru Vol, you should cling to the hope that Pruitt doesn't just use Tennessee as a stepping stone, like your boy Kiffin did.Alabama will come calling and it will happen sooner than later. How long will it take for Pruitt to catch up to smart? will it ever happen?41-0. Cade Mays in UGA Red & Black.
email protected, and if they had a fair shake by the officials none of that would have come into play.The coaches managed the game right into the National Championship. The officials helped Alabama throughout the game. It's already hard enough to beat a seasoned team who has more depth.I think it's too much to ask for the coaches to manage the game through corrupt officiating as well. But, even despite that, they still almost did.I don't get the disparaging remarks toward UGA's coaching?
