re: Official Defensive Coordinator Opening Discussion Thread - OldPete
As for Pruitt being cleared, a Bama radio talk show dude said yesterday that he’s [i]hearing[/i] that Bama compliance and SEC compliance cleared Pruitt but they’re awaiting word from the NCAA; he mentioned they were expecting to hear a couple of days ago (when the NCAA was at the 60-day deadline to ...

re: Just finished watching the 1993 Sugar Bowl for the first time. - OldPete
[quote]We can thank Coach Bill (Brother) Oliver for that win. His defensive scheme was genius (and daring! )[/quote] Yeah, best defensive gameplan I've ever seen. Sometimes we had 11 men on the line and brought all but 2 or 3...other times with 11 on the line, we dropped back 8 or 9. They had Cur...

re: Bama Fatigue - OldPete
Depends on the game… Colt McCoy was 2-2 for 9 yards when he left the game; I think we win that game regardless of their QB… Quin Ewers was torching our secondary when he was knocked outta the game; I think we lose that game if he hadn’t gotten injured…...

re: Bama won NCs in spite of Golding - OldPete
[quote]People seem to forget about that 2019 game in Auburn, a 48-45 loss, where they could absolutely not stop an average AU offense. It was a lot like this past season’s game with UT.[/quote] While our defense was atrocious in the Tennessee game this season, those two games were nothing alike: ...

[quote]Stats can be argued and used to paint about any picture. But I believe the talent and/or offense helped tremendously to bail him out.[/quote] So talent and/or offense never bailed out Pruitt or Smart, only Golding?...

re: Bama won NCs in spite of Golding - OldPete
[quote]Golding's problem was that his defense regressed significantly this season against some really big, reasonable expectations.[/quote] Agree. I was fine with Golding until this year; the defense disappeared at times and seemed lost at other times…and it’s the first time I felt a change was ne...

re: Kirby was at Bama for 8 years - OldPete
Actually, Kirby was at Bama for 9 seasons… Kirby was great for us at Bama and I’m happy for him; hope we can whup him next season though. Stetson isn’t eligible for a tenth year, is he? ;)...

[quote]I’ve noticed Anderson on the inside many times this year. Made no sense at all. He’s an edge guy, putting him inside takes him out of the play.[/quote] I’ve got no problem putting Anderson on the inside, [i]occasionally[/i], to change things up, maybe get a better matchup, maybe confuse the ...

re: Coaches to replace this offseason - OldPete
[i]If[/i] the OC & DC are let go, I’d try to hire Milwee as OC and Schumann as DC…and then let them confer with Saban on the assistants… As for Wiggins, Devonta Smith thought very highly of him and this is the first year our WRs have underperformed as a whole; not to mention, he’s the primary rec...

re: What to expect against Miss state? - OldPete

re: Is this the end of the onside kick? - OldPete
There was a rule change a few years back, allowing for a fair catch on an onside kick if the ball only took one bounce; this was to address everyone kicking the ball straight into the ground to get a huge hop on onside kicks. Here’s the rule: “A fair catch of a free kick is a catch by a Team B pl...

re: Grades for Texas - Pro Football Focus - OldPete
[quote]- 0 QB Sacks[/quote] Bryce was sacked twice during the game...so I'm guessing this means that those 2 sacks were not attributed to anyone on the OL? I'm guessing both were attributed to backs not picking up the blitz? I know Gibbs appeared to miss one assignment not sure 'bout the other....

re: Coach gets $11.7 million/year for leading a team through a rebuilding year - OldPete
[quote]bama gets a "rebuilding year" stamp of approval, while any other team would get continually roasted for using that as an excuse for a loss.[/quote] After the 2020 season, we lost the best QB in the nation, the best RB, the best WR, the best OT, the best center, one of the best DBs, in additi...
