Chanting overrated always struck me as an incredibly stupid act on the part of any given fanbase. Why would you want to remove the luster of a big victory by insinuating that the team you just defeated really wasn't as good as they were perceived to be??
If Bret Beilema can have a tv show, Will Muschamp can have a tv show. And just so you know, all of us fans of lower tier SEC teams would only have a mild interest in seeing a show about Alabama, LSU, Georgia, or any other of the blue blood programs, just as you would only have a mild interest in seeing a show about Mizzou, USC or Arkansas.
Yep. We will still suck in '19. Because CCM will have to start a bunch of kids less than a year removed from sleeping at Mama's house. '20 may be a different story however... Meanwhile, Saban is getting old...
Hate that for you Zou guys. Scholarship reductions, Ouch! Ol' Miss lived through their ban, you will too. But it would have been nice if they had waited until after Feb signing to drop this bomb on ya'll...
Arkansas leaving before the game started and LSU punching UCF in the face. LMAO!
There was a time when I actually enjoyed the comments section as much or more than the actual articles. We had pertinent discussions pertaining to the subject matter, bounced ideas off each other, argued a bit, but it had a coffee shop meeting vibe that reminded me of the days when we actually met in the coffee shop. Now it has deteriorated into a playground for trolls, and those of us who actually want to have a civil discussion are having to Wade through this nonsense. Sad that there are those who exist with no other purpose than to ruin stuff for others.
Just curious. Would you be as pi$$ed off had he referenced, Allah, Buddha, Hare Krishna, Oprah, or any AH besides Jehovah?? Tired of anti Christians DEMANDING we keep our faith a secret. What exactly did it hurt for him to mention his faith? NOTHING.. Shut up.
Will be interesting to see how rough the transition from the triple option to pro style offense goes for Tech. Hope it goes better than our transition from pro style to RPO..
Yep. You guys are at Bama level when it comes to the depth chart. And right now Saban would cut off his right arm to have a kicker of Blankenship's stature.
Good luck to the young man. He may well be a stud at that level. After getting his a$$ handed to him by SEC defenses for two years he SHOULD excel at a lower level school..
In this day and age fan bases should turn cartwheels when a running back decides to play out his fourth year of eligibility in the NCAA. Hope the kid has a great year, raises his stock and avoids injury..
Sporting events are now for rich people exclusively anyways. I LOVE CFB and have since I was a kid, but the average guy like me can't even afford to go to a home game anymore, much less travel across the country and pay 1/3 of my monthly wages to watch 22 kids chase an inflated leather bag around a cow pasture for 3 hours. I can't even afford the $126 get in on this down year. I stopped going to Hogs games when the ticket price hit $50 a pop. $1000 a head is ridiculous. I wouldn'the pay that if the Pope was there to say the openingame prayer and Elvis was fronting the Beatles at halftime.
Indeed he could. And contribute to our ailing defense as well as mentor the "young uns". Like your handle BTW..
It depends on your status. Nick (with Bama money) can afford to bust 5 headsets per game. I don't know what your HS coaches budget is, but I would wager that if he busts too many you'll eventually see him wearing one held together with duct tape and bailing wire... LOL
Yep. BA was among the best ever at the UofA in my opinion. He and his brother both reminded me a bit of Clint Stoerner in the respect that they were tough as a sack of 16 penny nails. You could have shot either of the Allen boys out of a cannon into a brick wall and they would have got up and said "Do that again.." Very handy quality to possess especially in AA's case since he didn't have anyone blocking for him...
If you were a 4* recruit you couldn't even find the "dumpster fire". The University of Arkansas is in FAYETTEVILLE, not Little Rock...
No, Arkansas STUNK.... In 2019 AR may still smell a bit funny, but in 2020 after these newcomers have a year under their belt AR may smell better than they have in a decade or so..
Correct BamaTime.. The rankings of course will vary from source to source. But I would wager we ain't 12th in the SEC (as Geaux Long suggested) in the reckoning of any given source... Little runts we were in '18 (again as Geaux suggested) and may not fare well in '19, since CCM may be starting a bunch of kids a few months removed from Mama's house.. 2020 will tell the tale as to whether we were sold a bill of goods or hired the coach that can get us to a NY6 bowl every third year, and perhaps flirt with an SEC championship in the process...
Well, if I looked at the chart on the rivals site correctly, We are 12th in the NATION and 5th in the SEC behind Bama, A&M, Georgia and LSU...
In 25 years,or even 50, fans of college football will still be talking aboUT Nick Saban. Nobody will remember that Kelly beat him out for COTY IN 18. I think legendary status trumps COTY, and Bama is the only school I can think of with 2 who have achieved that... Congrats to CBK...
They should rename the Broyles Award, The Broyles / Saban Award. If anything Saban may be more astute at selecting assistants than Frank was...
4 wins in 19 would not be a shock at this point, as he will most likely start a bunch who are just a few months removed from sitting at the dinner table with their mama's. 20 will tell the tale. We don't bowl in 20 then I will be the first to say the Walrus was right..
That's the point. If expectations for CCM are no more than he can make us somewhat relevant why did we run CBB off? I agree, CBB would have had us in a bowl with this group. CCM couldn't. I don't blame the kids, I don't blame the coach. CCM leading this group of players is like Frank Sinatra fronting Metallica. Both are good at what they do, but they just don't mesh. If we don't bowl by 2020 I'll join you in the hang CMM group. I wanna see for sure before I condemn the man. As far as Kirby.... They have the heir apparent to Sabans throne, yet they look a gift horse in the mouth....
Yeah. Agree. Bama has 2 talented qbs who are gracious and mature beyond their years.
We ran "somewhat relevant" off to hire CBB.
I was thinking Ty would fly as well 66. And it could still happen.... SDS kinda tended to bash Ty and Cole both, which was kinda ignorant on their part.Ty or Cole either one playing in CCM's system is like Frank Sinatra singing for Metallica. How can anyone know how good either of these guys could be until they can play in a system that fits their skill sets..Hope Cole lands somewhere that his talents can flourish....
Have to agree. Can't begrudge Nick his magnum opus... Hopefully 50 years from now our great grandchildren will be watching video of the '18 Bama squad, still heralded as the greatest team ever to grace the college gridiron.
Always hated the term dumpster fire. But dumpster fire is not ugly enough to describe this season. Sewer Fire? Hicky on a hemorrhoid? I'd say we screwed the pooch but I don't think our defense could catch him. Glad this season is over, dunno if i'm looking forward to '19 or not. Almost wish I'd been born in Alabama where men are men and all the women are your 2nd cousin. Crap, bashin' Bama didn't even make me feel better. Woooooooooooooo Pig Shi*ty.... LOL
