re: Higher chance: We missed on players OR players lacking pride/work ethic? - Sauron
OR ... do we have the right players, and our schemes aren't putting them in the right place / giving them the best opportunity to succeed. Maybe in this case it IS the Xs and Os, and not the Jimmies and Joes. ...

re: National Transfer Portal Thread News - Sauron
I honestly don't understand the Drake Maye love. I fully expect Ty Simpson to be our QB in 2023, barring injury. He has a pocket presence and throwing ability Milroe just doesn't. We have the 8th- and 9th-rated QBs in the 2023 recruiting cycle committed (Holstein and Lonergan). If you want to se...

re: Fire Pete Golding - Sauron
I agree on the sooner the better, but I would bet on any moves being made after the end of ESD (12.23). Particularly since Pete is known as a very good recruiter. If a change is made before then, it's likely because of some extenuating circumstance. ...

re: Fire Pete Golding - Sauron
[quote]This begs the question of whether he's just hamstrung by having to run Saban's defense and concepts?[/quote] That's a whole 'nother discussion in and of itself. I'm of the opinion that the defensive scheme needs to be overhauled. Not scrapped, but revised significantly. We KNOW our two big...

re: Fire Pete Golding - Sauron
Pete seems to be decent when he's got a couple of weeks to plan for a specific opponent. His defenses in the playoffs have been pretty good. Still not up to our standards, but better than they were during the season. I think the issue is the complexity. He can't take the scheme on a week-in, wee...

re: Fire Pete Golding - Sauron
A play late in the Auburn game summed up Pete's defense and ILB coaching perfectly to me. It was third and long -- maybe 12-15 yards. Ashford dropped back to pass, and I immediately noticed To'oto'o was spying him. Which I thought was exactly the right thing. Ashford got pressure, and rolled...

re: Defense under Golding, visual representation - Sauron
[quote]I think Pruitt’s defenses were just that much more dominant. [/quote] Pruitt was a great DC, and I'd be tickled pink to see him back at Bama. However, he was good for one or two head-scratchers a year from a defensive standpoint (Ole Miss and Arkansas 2016, Colorado State 2017 as examples...

re: Bama Football Tidings - Sauron
[quote] Bama Football Tidings There are several things wrong in that picture that need fixing[/quote] Lord knows I'm not a coach, but it looks to me like the quickest and easiest fix is to have Williams (#5) get out into the flat quicker once he sees his blocking isn't needed. That would force ...

re: Bama Football Tidings - Sauron
This is my one complaint about Bryce's game. I don't want him running 20 times, but I wish he would take the 6 - 8 yard gains when they're available to keep the chains moving (or put us in a favorable position). Honestly, he's at a greater risk for injury if he tries to stay in the pocket, due t...

re: Cam Latu vs Amari Niblack - Sauron
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Amari Niblack has one reception in his college career, vs. ULM. Granted, it was a touchdown. What has he done to warrant the excitement / push for more playing time? Or is it just a case of people not liking Latu?...
