Don't worry, I'll still be here.
Actually Alabama gives full academic scholarships to kids with 1400+ SAT scores, which I think is pretty cool. But let's continue looking down out noses at other schools because of their football team, that's definitely a good look.
Was hoping to see at least 3 receivers mentioned. JT has missed some throws this year but you can't ignore how many balls have been dropped or the guy apparently ran the wrong route. That starts a vicious cycle where the coaches understandably lose faith in the downfield attack and start relying more on the QB run. If we want to be successful we need to start fast and stay fast.
Dabo seems like a great guy and is one hell of a coach. I believe he's the #1 candidate for Bama when Saban hangs them up.
Conley was 81st in the nation in INTs this year, mostly because the opposing QB didn't throw his way. Such is the nature of the beast.
Don't feel sorry for him though. He won't be overlooked by scouts in a few months.
Rest in peace, Mr Glenn.
I mean, his career has turned out just fine. He's a two time Heisman finalist and is going to be a top 3 pick a few months. Doubt he has any regrets.
Cool stuff. Urban doesn't always get his guy, though sometimes our fans like to re-write the history to pretend that we did. We went after Watson in 14, I think we sent feelers out for Kyler Murray in '15 and we definitely wanted Guarantano first last year before he went to UT. Curious to see how they all pan out.
"All Purpose" is where he actually belongs though. Putting him at LB is what's questionable.
SI doesn't count for that.
As of 2009, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) recognizes the All-America teams selected by the AP, AFCA, FWAA, Sporting News, and the WCFF to determine consensus All-Americans. If three of these organizations select a player to their first team, he automatically receives the "consensus" honor. If a player is named an All-American by all five organizations, he receives "unanimous All-American" recognition
A Buckeye has now won 4 of the last 5 times. And honestly JT deserved it in '14 too.
I disagree. The 2012 offense was basically a dumbed down version of the triple option. It worked because Hyde was tough to tackle and the opposing defense was too slow to stop Braxton from running outside every play. Our defense now is fast enough to actually set the edge.
I'm impressed with how so many of the walk-ons (since I don't recognize them) have the grades AND are taking real classes in tough majors. No offense to the "leisure studies' grads out there, but I'm going out on a limb and assuming that Biology or Pharmacy classes are harder.
Urban could have made him a Co-DC when Ash left if he thought he was up to it.
That would be tough, but getting Charlie Strong as DC would take the sting out. Possibly as Co-DC with Larry Johnson. We'd be ok.
He already has the defense and has made millions of dollars in his career, so neither would keep him at OSU. He wants to be a HC again.
I agree that that would be more meaningful, but my point was that Cam has lower total yards and a lower average than the two guys picked. It's not like they just picked two random undeserving scrubs.
No he wasn't. See my post above - the guys selected had better numbers than he did.
Cam had a 46.2 average. Wishnowsky was at 48 and Dickson was at 47.4. So he just got beat out, simple as that.
Peppers: 66 tackles, 13 TFL, 3 sacks, 1 INT
Raekwon: 87 tackles, 5 TFL, 1 sack, 0 INT
While I agree with you, Kwon doesn't really have the numbers to support his case this year.
Also, shoutout to Ed Oliver. He has to be the first true freshman All American at DT in a very long time.
Time to plant some new trees.
Counterpoint: his stock is really high right now due to our defense playing amazing. If they underwhelm next year he might not be as favored. Strike while the iron is hot and all that.
