I don't think anything is "up," and I don't think it's anyone's fault. Just an incredible run of freak bad luck. Still ... It's frustrating to think about what might have been, were it not for injuries....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Telling stat regarding injuries - Sauron on 12/5/19 at 9:55 am
Heard this on WJOX a few minutes ago; they were quoting the CFB Nerds site, I think. They named several guys who are finishing their careers and / or have the potential to go in the first round of the draft (Tua, Jeudy, Ruggs, D. Smith, N.

Beg pardon? I'm just giving out some historical info. I'd love another 42-14 beat down, but that kind of game down there is the outlier, not the norm. Still ...

A few random stats for this game: - Saban is 8-4 against Auburn. Three of those four losses came at Jordan-Hare. His overall record there is 3-3 (5-1 in Tuscaloosa). - There have been three "decisive" victories since 2007 when the game is played at Auburn ("decisive" is an arbitrary term, mean...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Najee Harris - Sauron on 11/19/19 at 2:03 pm
The biggest knock on Najee, in my opinion, is he doesn't have quick feet. He weighs 220+, so he doesn't NEED quick feet. But that means if he gets to the line and starts trying to pick a hole, he usually can't accelerate and change direction quickly enough to produce a positive play. On the flip ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

What would be funny is if everything goes the way we want it to until Championship Saturday, then Georgia just curb-stomps LSU in the SEC Championship.

Do we even know if McMillon can come back? Wasn't he a fifth-year senior? I was rooting for him this year as the QB of the defense. When he went down with the injury, though, I think that spelled the end of his Alabama career. His biggest asset was knowing the defensive calls inside and out....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
