Born and raised in the Hall of Fame City, and now living in Nashville where it's all Alabama all the time. Played WR at D3 Ohio Wesleyan where we used to practice in the shoe to prepare for artificial surface games back in the 80's. My QB was Jeff Long, AD at Arkansas, and head of the NCAA playoff selection committee. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

SlumLord is damn right. But not buying the jerseys for $300 is about as realistic as not spending $200+ from the ticket hoarders for the Michigan State game in November. 

And I'm afraid I will be guilty of that infraction myself. It has to be managed by the original seller.

I'll tell you that a lot of Bama fans were extremely worried about Ohio State WRs - no matter who the QB was. Because their Achilles heel all year was the deep pass. 

hearing this here in Nashville leading up to the game, plus the fact that MSU pulled off the win against Baylor - that's when I believed we would win. I was in New Orleans, and you could see Saban pacing in the first quarter - he knew then. The first quarter showed that they not only were going to struggle against the pass, but the mobile QB was going to open things up, and Zeke already had about 80yds. 

Comment 05 Apr 2015

Jalin to WR makes total sense - he is fearless in the deep crossing pattern and always finds the open gap (see Sugar Bowl tape). The question in this offense is , which WR.  Spencer's position ? Because I don't know if he has the top end speed to take Devin Smith's, and I assume Michaelt Thomas will continue in his role. 

Comment 04 Apr 2015

I'm afraid we're going to see a lot of guys parlaying exposure from the NC and probable playoff appearance this year to enter the draft  (don't be superstitious guys - have you seen our schedule ?)  

VB will be one of them as will Zeke and Bosa. That's the price of successful recruiting !

Comment 04 Apr 2015

Our offense tends to lock in on one RB for the entire season. But we will enter the season in the top four - and have a very good chance to play 14 or even 15 games. After riding Zeke with spot duty from Samuels, that will be almost 30 games of heavy lifting. I hope Urban/Warriner are serious about distributing some backfield time. Samuels and Dunn/Ball should get most of the second half reps of games like Rutgers, Maryland, Indiana, Illinois and the four non conference laughers.  Zeke will still get enough touches, TDs, and flashes of brilliance in the first half of games to compete for the Heisman.

DJ, like the quality of education and southern hospitality, the weather in Tennessee is way over rated.  Dec-March are still winter - less inches of snow - but 37 degrees and rain ican be worse. Summer is worse than Florida since you don't even get the breeze. Admittedly there is usually an actual spring, but that's the only advantage.

No matter the weather, donning OSU NC gear at the grocery store is a blast !!! I get a lot of congrats from auburn and UT fans since they are the only two fan bases who eschew the "SEC Baby"  mentality when it comes to Bama.

Comment 30 Mar 2015

There was a pretty cool video of Nick Saban that was shown on 11W leading up to the Sugar Bowl - he was talking about giving second chances to kids. It sounded righteous. Was the subject player the same Jonathan Taylor ?

Comment 29 Mar 2015

There's Hubbard !  I had heard so much about Holmes in the past two weeks - I asked yesterday if anyone had an update on Sam H. Glad to see that he AND Holmes are impressing this spring. 

Go watch the NC and Sugar, and you'll see more D line rotation than we all realized last year (with the stream of comments from the staff about lack of development).

Comment 25 Mar 2015

It amazes me that a kid would even visit TTUN right now. But they do - and several have it as one of their top three. Here young man, you could play for one of the top two coaches in all of college football, be in the NC picture all four years, and have your body chiseled by Michelangelo Mariotti - or you could play for a team that hasn't competed seriously since 2006 , and that was under a coach three times removed. Someone please explain the attraction to me - especially for an Ohio kid.

Comment 23 Mar 2015

Is the photo at the top of the Skully of Tracy Sprinkle ? If  so, I missed the text .

Comment 18 Mar 2015

We all know M Thomas scored on E Spencer's reverse pass and converted the PAT after Zeke's 85 yard run TTHOTS (through the heart of the South).  But in the Sugar bowl and NC games he consistently turned 7-8 yd hooks and slants into 12-15 yard first downs. I think it helped to enable long shots to D Smith and >200 yd rushing performances for Zeke. Not taking away from Spencer's great blocking, but just noting some key contributions that will continue in the rerun season !

Comment 14 Mar 2015

Roy Hall jumped on Ted Ginn's back in the end zone of the 2006 natty vs Fla. Fast forward to this year's national champ game and you'll see Corey Smith jump on Zeke's back after the first TD. I wish UFM would ban  celebratory jumping by WRs altogether.

how would I know this ?  Because every time I watch the basketball team I have to watch the Sugar Bowl or NC game to get over it. "Every time" ? Yes, because it's ground hog day every game - down ten or more after a slow start, crappy 2nd half start, Deangelo Russell flurry at the end - lose by 9. C'mon Thad geez. 

Comment 08 Mar 2015

Beamer's staff threw the Bear front in front of a coaching staff that proved to be the best in the nation, and they couldn't adjust. So it stands to reason that he is planning another indecipherable package for next year's opener. So we ought to be ready with three strategies :

A. Long ball with Cardale

B.  Read option with JT

C. Two man run game with Braxton

If we're stymied by mid second quarter, switch up to plan B or C.

Comment 07 Mar 2015

Herbie was EXTREMELY vocal on Mike and Mike and on the lead in show to the announcement of the final four against David Palmer. He basically told everyone to shove Virginia Tech and "quality" losses up theirs  asses.  He repeated over and over again that OSU had graduated 4 OL rookie NFL starters and played a new QB  and RB all at once that proceeded to run the table. 

Comment 06 Mar 2015

Don't you think the Wisconsin video is a gross exaggeration ? I'm pretty sure they got two first downs in the game !

Comment 27 Feb 2015

Hey Nashville, what part of town are you in ?

I just had breakfast at Hillsboro Village across from Sam's Grill on 21st Ave.  They have all the SEC schools' flags flying outside now. Makes me sick inside. 

We need to get like minded Buckeye fans together to watch games here. Text me if you're interested (330)671-6530.

Comment 26 Feb 2015

Amen MD Buckeye. In the week leading to the draft, I pray each day that the Browns won't draft any Buckeyes. I think that Buckeye alumni success in the NFL is yet another major recruiting tool. Could you imagine Linsley, Mewhort, Philly Brown, RD Shazier, Brad Roby and Carlos Hyde's NFL pedigree if they wasted last year with the Browns? No Ray Farmer, stay away from these young men.  

All Saints please pray to keep these boys safe from Cleveland. (I am a Browns fan btw)

Comment 25 Feb 2015

Still can't get over highlight video from Sugar Bowl in yesterday's skill session. Evan Spencer took out TWO LBs in Zeke's 85 yd TD jaunt , not just one ! Check it at 2:58. 

Comment 24 Feb 2015

Check 2:58 - I didn't realize that Evan Spencer took out the OLB AND Trey Depriest on the crackback that sprung Elliot for the 85 yard dagger to the Bama heart !!!
