Based on what for Alabama?
Based on the fact that most of Alabama's backfield are 5*'s. I expect the new OC to have just as much success as Sarkisian did. You have to remember that the man was a career average coach before working with Bama talent

Doesn't matter who the OC is at Bama with all that talent

Isaiah Spiller - The top 2022 draft eligible RB

Breece Hall is equally as good if not better.

Zamir White and Ealy will also be very good RBs within the SEC to push for top RB.

Overall, it looks like a top heavy RB class in 2022. Will be surprised if any go day 1, unless someone really seperates themselves this fall.

Of the two top RBs, Hall is obviously better positioned to do that due to aTm's RB depth alone that will limit Spiller.

re: Best Returning Backfield in CFB
What is impressive about A&M's backfield is the diversity of the skill sets and the depth. Start with Spiller, then alternate with Achane when the defense is tired, and then Smith as more of a Swiss army knife.

And LJ Johnson will get some carries for when Spiller is gone next year. And oh yeah - the QB is one of the fastest kids on the team as well ...

Texas has a pretty good group:

Bijan Robinson
Keilan Robinson (transfer from Bama)
Roschon Johnson

I have only seen highlights on KR, so hard for me to say how good he is and how many carries each back will get. Bijan is a stud though.


A 700 yard runner, a guy who busted at Alabama and a guy I've never heard of. Awesome. And a new starter at QB. That is one of the lower Power Five backfields.

re: Best Returning Backfield in CFB
The Texas OL will also be a huge detriment to anything with Bijan. I see a lot of this

Bijan 2020 86 carries 703 yards 6.8 ypc
Keilan 2019 39 carries 254 yards 6.5 ypc
Roschon 2020 80 carries 418 yards 5.2 ypc
Total 205 carries 1375 yards 6.71 ypc

I expect Sark to rush the ball about 30+ times a game this year with a new QB and a stud like Bijan; with very few going to the QB, unlike last year under Herman.

If Bijan stays healthy and gets 250 of those carries, he is potentially a 1500+ yard back.

I’m not saying the Texas RB group is the definitive answer to the OP question,. but I do think Bijan is one of the best hacks in the country and he has a coach that will feed him the ball. I believe that Sark has had a 1,000 yard rusher every year he has been an OC or Head Coach.

PS: The Brock joke was quite funny. Did you hear that they are transferring to Texas? Sad face.

You and all your other TU fans better have a large bottle of JO lube by your lounger to last all fall. It will be like watching Bama v2.0 offense. Not as good as talent Bama puts on the field but it will be 10x better than the shite you've been seeing. The TU-Bama game in '22 will be fricking awesome.

Texas averaged 42.7 points per game last year. Hard to imagine it will go up this year with a new QB, but 10x better it will not be. It may take a year or two, but I believe Sark will field a good offense.

But PK on defense is where I expect to see the biggest difference on the field, and hopefully in the win column. Again, it may take a year or two, but I am very high on the coaching staff, from top to bottom.

Prediction: Sark in 2022 will become the first assistant from the Saban tree to beat Saban.

My money is on Kiffin. His ego has him focused like a laser on beating Saban, even if it costs him 1-2 games prior in prep and the game after in exhaustion. It is the feather in the cap he is chasing.

His amount of butthurt after last years game was evident. He looked like a child who watched his puppy eaten by coyotes. His heart and soul went into that game plan, and he came up short.

Well it better happen this year, or he will not be the first.. :)

Who else has a chance to do it this year?

Fisher @ A&M
Kiffen @ Ole Miss
Kirby @ Georgia in the SEC Championship
Sark @ Texas in the Playoffs :D

Hence the :D at the end of the comment.

13-0 or 12-1 and a Big 12 Title gets it done, but I don’t see that happening in 2021.

11-2 and a Big 12 Title probably puts us on the outside looking in.. but I would take those results right now and hope for some good luck.

I bet you would. Texas hasn't been that good in over a decade.

Present!

He needs no backup. It's just a fun topic for July 12. Will A&M be the best? Who knows? It isn't outrageous to think they might be, though.
