Kirk Herbstreit dismisses supporting cast argument against Mac Jones, compares mindset to Joe Burrow
Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence were both surrounded by talent so I am not sure what the difference is with Mac. It’s always a gamble when drafting quarterbacks.
The fact that you think this is he said she said clearly says that you have been living under a rock for the past several years. The politically correct, me too, and host of other movements that have been happening has to the letter said in situations like these that a person is guilty until proven innocent. Now the state politicians have their claws out and this does not look good. This has nothing to do with the team or coach strictly circumstance. Hell I’m a Bama fan and I like Coach O, but these are strange times were are in today.
LSUMC you just made the case for why the guy from last year did better in the pros this year. The two guys who got drafted earlier than him went to teams that wasn't as good. Its always better to get drafted later if you want to have immediate success, because those teams are only missing a few players.
Tom Herman to Bama as OC?
One thing to keep in mind if he did indeed turn this job down ( I would be shocked by the way ). Charlie Strong is currently on Sabans staff and could provide a ton of information on the inner workings of the program. There might be to much meddling by boosters or other issues Strong could warn Sark about.
I keep questioning the offensive minded statements. BSU offense was ranked below Auburns offense this season and BSU has a supposedly NFL quarterback in the MWC and finished in the bottom half of the conference in the MWC. Hope it works out for them but just seems like an odd hire.
Hope it works out for Auburn, but for every Peterson coming out of BSU there is a Houston Nutt. All I can say is if he agreed to keep Steele he better watch his back.
Vanderbilt had an opportunity here to go unorthodox. Jeff Monken would have been my pick. The spread no huddle worked for schools with disadvantages in talent until everyone else started running a form of spread. Now the talent gap is back in full display. Monken could have gotten kids that would not have been looked at by the other schools in the conference. Either way I hope the hire works out for them whoever it is.
Monken, no he would be an emergency candidate only. However, I do remember Alabama looking at Paul Johnson back when Francione and Mike Price were hired just due to the sanctions and the job was not desirable at the time. It would be interesting to see someone try to run that offense in one of the power five conferences at a place without the strict academic requirements. I do see Monken as a great candidate for Vandy though. He could get better players at Vandy than he does at Army.
I am a life long Bama fan but MSU is definitely a team I will be pulling for on every Saturday except one. I am excited for the bulldog fans. It’s going to be an awesome year next year in the west.
I think Baity is the corner from Kentucky who is like 6 foot 4
This same KSU team gave up 24 points to South Dakota so let’s see what happens when SEC play starts. They could be legitimate but we don’t know about any team right now because it’s still to early in the season to make any assumptions
I know he wouldn’t go but I would love to see what Hurts could do in Paul Johnson’s offense at Georgia Tech. Fits his skill set and when he would be asked to throw the receivers are generally wide open.
Arkansas is a much better fit for Jalen. Almost a sure starting spot.
Point 1 = Saban is on the record multiple times saying all power 5 conference teams play exclusively other power five conference teams. He also goes on to say that these games are what is hurting attendance a in all conferences across the country. Until that happens why would Alabama want to do that? He is on the record wanting 9 conference games! Why should he choose to be the martyr when no one else in the country does it? Point 2 = How would these smaller schools fund their athletic departments without these games? There are many kids who earn scholarships and are actually student athletes at these small schools. Many of these kids wouldn’t have a access to an education without playing for these small schools. Point 3 = How do you schedule tough out of conference games so far in advance? I mean look at the home & away series that Bama is signing now out in the mid 20s. Saban could and probably will be gone and Bama could be a dumpster fire just like the teams that they scheduled could be.
I don’t think he meant any disrespect, but this kind of hyperbole and lip service will continue until UGA strings some seasons together consistently (and they will). Once that happens this will stop. This is just people trying to get headlines and get there name out in the press.
Jimbo Fisher’s explanation on why he calls offensive plays could explain why his QBs are so successful
I think Chad Morris at Arkansas is calling plays too
Object of the game is to win. 1. Get the best players possible = coaching 2. Win games with said players = coaching Did this moron just try to trash Sabans defense for giving up 8 40 point games in 11 years? Really?
Report: Texas A&M regents to vote on whether to sue former assistant Jeff Banks for breach of contract
When the head coach gets fired and you have no guarantee of future employment you start looking and find something else. I agree LSUMC. I am starting to really think that the this board is a tad hypocritical. If this board moves forward with this it will come across as petty with the amount of money they have in endowments.
Ruggs- I hate auto correct!!!
Well if they are looking at just the Georgia game that’s a fair comment, but I can think of several throws Tua made last year that are next level throws. The TD to Riggs against Tennessee and the ridiculous TD against Vanderbilt come to mind.
Anyone taking bets on chest pains ?
I can’t believe these players now. When I was in college we would nev... hav.... yeah never mind. Give these kids a break. The media, cops and every other adult on the planet act like they were choir boys and girls in college. If this were a student on academic scholarship we wouldn’t even know about this stuff. Some people (most) do stupid things when they are young and I am tired of the adults who have developed CLOM disease since they graduated. By the way CLOM disease is an acronym for Convenient Loss Of Memory.
Report: Tennessee makes late addition to 2018 class, picks up 4-star ATH who used to be a South Carolina commit
Your statement is partially true. USC does have different (stronger requirements) than the SEC. Steve Spurrier tried to get that changed while he was there the whole time. The SEC rule is the minimum requirement. Vanderbilt and Texas A&M have similar rules.
If that’s the case why did ole Kirby try to take 3/4 of his coaches? Seems like he doesn’t care about character to much either then. Everybody needs to remember if possible that if you have a buddy that gets in some trouble and loses his job you are going to try to help him out. Happens everyday in the real world
Is it possible for SDS to STOP posting articles about this a$$hats opinions. He is only using the media for attention and to keep his name circulating for future job opportunities! He did a great job at Alabama and we appreciate what he did but his opinions are bs to keep you spinning up news with his name attached
Ridiculous and delusional. Look at the facts. For all of the smoke getting blown it’s still situational. The state of Georgia produced four 5 star players this year and Kirby got those kids. That is what shot the class up. Lets see what he does next year when damn near the whole defense is gone next year. No five star players in state for Alabama this year and they only sign 21 players but believe what you will Saban is undefeated against former assistants on the field.
Dude the Kirby affect? He is an in state kid! Of course he went to Georgia. The only difference now and when Richt was there is defense. I like Kirby and wish Georgia luck, but let’s all be honest here Kirby walked into multiple years of top 5 recruiting classes. This was a good year for high school in Georgia. Next year it’s going to be Louisiana with close to double digit five star kids available.
Where was the stifling defense against Iowa?
Management of the athletic departments in the sec are ridiculous. They knew this was a possibility weeks ago. How did they not have an offer ready for today?
