Here are some of my favorite comments from this past week. Quality subjects are hard to find these days. I feel your offseason pain.

Texas A&M's Myles Garrett is the superior athlete, but Alabama's Jonathan Allen is the better football player. Turn on the tape. As the saying goes, "The eye in the sky doesn't lie."

Even though the defensive backs will still be doing their workouts Monday, media availability for the NFL Scouting Combine is now complete. Here is my list of winners and losers from the SEC.

My guess is Daeshon Hall did well when meeting with coaches and general managers at the Scouting Combine. He finally had a chance to talk about himself instead of Myles Garrett. That and more from Day 4 in Indianapolis.

Alabama strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran is one of the best in the business, making it all the more interesting that so many Tide players have eschewed that portion of the Combine.

Whether it's an up or down year for the SEC at the linebacker position, Alabama is always part of the conversation when it comes to blue-chip prospects. We look at the 2017 class and how it might compare to the previous five classes.

Alabama recently won its seventh consecutive recruiting title, adding two recruits who rank among the best in program history. Here are the top 20 recruits in Alabama history since 247Sports.com began tracking them in 2000.

Brian Daboll's personality is a change from Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian. It remains to be seen if the personality of the Crimson Tide offense changes in kind.
