Just my opinion, but JT is still our best quarterback. His ability to read defenses and execute a precise "west coast" style paying game with short to intermediate throws is unmatched and fits our bevy of running back and wide receiver talent perfectly. Jones, like what was said above, is a tank with a cannon arm but he was only making single read throws instead of going through his progressions. Plus losing or amazing deep threat in Devin Smith will hurt or ability to run super deep throws like we could this year. They're obviously all amazing athletes and people, and it's really splitting hairs on who's the best, but those are my two cents.

You've got my upvote, this may be a few kids who ultimately decided that they wanted to preserve their health. But it's also highly possible that they were told there simply isn't room anymore. Yes, I wish the kids well, and yes I'm glad we're honoring their scholarship for as long as necessary, but this site would lose it's shit with $EC this and $EC that if Alabama released this exact same report. We should try to look at what's going on objectively.

For a guy who exclusively uses mobile to browse with I avoid anything on this site I know will be flooded with gifs (like commitment announcement's) because it makes the page horribly glitchy and slow.

Kind of a dumb question, but when we offer players like Ferns and Borland and it seems the coaching staff has Ferns as the number one priority, what happens if Borland immediately commits? It seems like we have a hierarchy of targets but we offer everyone at once, what happens if all the kids who aren't priority one commit and then the priority one kids want in as well?

Psshh, experts shmexperts... I saw one highlight film of Gibson and read some stuff online so I clearly know everything about the kids future.

34-28 Bama. Defense can't contain Yeldon and Henry enough to allow the secondary to poach picks and Grant can't contain Cooper. Our offense struggles in the red zone and Cardale has a tough outing. I'm a pessimist, growing up a Bills fan will do that to you.

Woooooo! I hope Don't Really Wilson makes his glorious return, we need all the wrinkles we can get in our offense!

Aussie Rules, I used to play Rugby back in my younger days and I can attest they're actually completely different games. Pretty much the only similarity between American football, rugby, and Aussie rules is the shape of the ball.

This guy gives a pretty good run down of some of the differences:

Would love to see Lincoln Riley, solid recruiting ties to the South East and a very aggressive offense with average athletic talent. Frost would be amazing but he's as far of a fetch as one could imagine.
