So according to what I read we signed 6 OL this year...and 5 last year.  I remember years under Boll-rus that we did not have 10 linemen total, much less 11 F/S.  Is our plan to just play one line for a quarter, then roll out the starters and grind down the opponents?  Not that I have a problem with this plan mind you.

This is typical "RTR Bama fan" behavior.  I have never met a fan base that basically felt they were entitled to be the champion every year.  It does not matter who they are facing, what their record is, nothing.  There are only 2 truths in life - 1. We are Bama and 2. It is always our championship.

After living in the state for 13 years I was very happy to leave the mentality.  They epitomized the 'if we win, it shows we are better than you.  if we lose, well we weren't really up for the game and it did not mean anything' fandom.

I understand the call even if I do not agree with it.  Bama stacked the line, we were not getting a first down.  He figured surprise them with a pass...if we complete it we can run MORE time off the clock (or score).  However, in that situation time is more important than yardage

Problem was not the call, the problem was it did not work.

After spending 10+ years in Birmingham my only comment is that when DOESN'T Alabama think their games are going to be blowouts.  Most Crimson Tide fans I know think that the only chance the Seattle Seahawks would have in a game against Bama is if Saban played his second stringers out of mercy.

I received my MBA (and I am working on my Ph.D.) at UAB.  Trust me it is majorly dysfunctional and there is literally nothing we can do about it.  The students have been pushing to "break away" from the Board and the UA system for the past 5 years, but to do it will take a constitutional amendment - which will never pass.  

Tuscaloosa will play opponents from the same conference (and same division) as UAB but flatly refuse to play UAB.  They refuse to invest in the program and then wonder why it is not self sufficient - forgetting that about 80% of all programs are not.  When UAB tried to build an on-campus stadium (instead of using one in the slums) a few years back they were told to basically stop trying to play football and work on improving their medical school.  So last year they forced out the president and appointed the Dean of the medical school as the President and this is how he thanked them.  

Pretty sickening

They did with Pelini - DC at Oklahoma and LSU.  And if you are going for someone with HC experience, they will probably end up with the flavor of the month in the MAC...and the B1G has way too many failed MAC coaches in their ranks (Beckman, possibly Hazell...don't need a third).  Get the hot OC - probably offense (Herman..or way worse for us Warriner) and see what he can do.
