Have you seen some of the girls in Tuscaloosa (on campus...not Alabama as a whole)? Enjoy yourself young player. 

At any rate, it doesn't really matter. Between Barrett (two years left), Burrow, Collier and Haskins (let me say this again, Haskins *fire emoji*), we should be fine without him. There isn't any shortage of quarterbacks who want to come play for Urban Meyer and his offense.

He really seems like it. Very very humble. He's also extraordinarily underrated and arguably one of the greatest living guitarists. However, he would say he's "average." His bass player, Carl Dufrene, is stellar. The musicians he surrounds himself with are outstanding. 

Also, it's a miracle that he's alive. From one recovering addict to another, he's an inspiration. Strangely, he's gotten even better since he got clean and sober. His playing and sound have gotten much more "jam" oriented and he's attracting a new fanbase. Such a talented, great guy.

I've seen them numerous times. I enjoy them much more than DMB. You'll love them. 

That said, a couple weeks ago I saw Widespread Panic in Indy. I've seen them over 100 times. 

Saw Anders Osborne and Amy Helm in Cinci on Wednesday. 

I'll be seeing Widespread Panic in May in Dayton. Phish either in Indy or Chicago. 

I'll also be seeing an excellent garage rock/rock band from Chicago called Twin Peaks several times. Most likely at Bonnaroo. They have a new album coming out in May, which is excellent and y'all should give a spin. They recorded a 3 song exclusive live session for Spotify at SWSX this past year that you can listen to now. Spoiler Alert: one of the band members is my brother.

Yeah, I expect them to slide. It is important to pay attention to the average rating of each of their players and how many commits they have.

Lets look at Georgia for example: Ranked at #12 in the country. However, their average player rating is 91.62 and they only have 14 commits. If they finish their class strongly with another 6-10 players of the same caliber (shouldn't be hard with Smart), they will probably be top 5. 

Same scenario goes for Clemson at #19. 13 commits with an average of 91.14

Regardless of where TTUN ends up, its safe to say that they should finish top 10 with a HELL of a class. 

I believe we will finish top 5, but we will not have the #1 team when all is said and done. We've had big-time players jump ship and we've missed on a couple others.

I wouldn't read too much into it. I think he's more or less speaking of more days to come where his mom's day has been made by enjoying her son's success. Call it blind optimism, but that's how I took it. Considering how tight he's been with his recruitment, I wouldn't think he would tip his hat in such a blatant manner.

Yeah, losing Tom Herman has been great.

I met Larry before Urban's first Spring Game a few years back. He was very kind. I forget how our conversation actually went, but I remember him saying "I'm just a retired school teacher trying to have fun." I also interacted with The Big Nut at the National Championship celebration in January. Really, really nice guy too.

I think all of the "Super Fans" are somewhat self-indulgent and I will be the first to admit that they annoy me. Nonetheless, I haven't found anything egregiously negative in my personal interactions with them.
