re: Football Recruiting & Roster - Robot Santa
The obvious solution is to bump the scholarship cap up to 100 or 110 or something so the only guys who leave did so willingly, but that will never happen for a variety of reasons....

[quote] Unreal. We are probably gonna have more 80 pt games this year than Grant had in 6.[/quote] I still carry the mental scars from watching that game @Auburn during Grant's 4th or 5th season where we failed to score 40 points against a Tony Barbee team that itself failed to score 50 points. ...

[quote]Well then fix the tackling and work on technique[/quote] He coached the safeties last season and McKinney was probably the most technically sound player on our defense. If you have an issue with the coverage technique the corners play then Scott and Saban are the two responsible for that. ...

re: Jalen still all class - Robot Santa
Yeah and then he got immediately called out by a Senior Bowl exec, which was pretty cool. Apparently Jalen isn't wearing that helmet in the game but it was created for him by a charity for children as thanks for all the work he has done with them over the years. Basically Dan Wolken stuck his foot i...

re: Cecil Hurt Article on 2019-2020 Alabama Basketball Team - Robot Santa
[quote]Hey! Look guys! It's us![/quote] I love getting caught up in the emotional rollercoaster of basketball season. We get to go from thinking we suck and will never win another game to booking our hotels for the Final Four, often over the course of 45 minutes. I love football games, but it jus...

[quote]He didn’t have the equal of talent at FSU as Alabama[/quote] That may be, but he still had a lot more talent to work with than any team in the ACC not named Clemson and still managed to put some very mediocre defenses out there. Kelly is a DBs coach, not a DC. Nothing wrong with that, but ...

re: Cecil Hurt Article on 2019-2020 Alabama Basketball Team - Robot Santa
I love Cecil but he seems to have made a big mistake with this article. Says the excitement from the fanbase can be attributed to 3 things and proceeds to only name 2. :lol: ...

[quote] There just wasn't a plan in place on the types of kids we wanted to sign to fit a system, because there wasn't really a system for either one. Grant's was to play defense and Johnson's was.......I don't really know.[/quote] I think Avery's strategy was to try to regularly sign a guard wh...

[quote]Byrne dmd someone I know awhile back on Twitter that was talking about the renovations and basically said they’re doing the football renovations so that they can raise money for everything else.

[quote]Assistant HC at Ole Miss at age 36. Judge wanted him as D-line coach with the Giants. Seems that there is a lot of potential there.[/quote] This will also be the 3rd time Saban has hired him in different capacities so he is obviously a good fit within the program. I think this is a good hi...

re: Football Recruiting & Roster - Robot Santa
Yeah even if the NCAA actually looks into it for more than 10 seconds (they won't), and even if they are able to prove it was real money (Burrow will 100% "clarify" that he got real money but the guys with remaining eligibility totally got fake money), you're talking about making them give a few hu...

re: The 2020 Team...What we know so far.... - Robot Santa
[quote]I might be wrong, but it would just seem odd for Saban to get rid of Golding after our defense was plagued by important injuries, and still managed to perform pretty well overall. Add that to the fact that coaching continuity has been a real issue, and I just don't see it happening. Unless...

re: CFB Coaching Carousel - Robot Santa
Saban wants someone like Tosh or Bo who is an A+ recruiter but also at least a B+ coach. There just aren't many of those though. And he had to fire Bo for lying to him about a recruiting violation and give Tosh a promotion he wasn't close to ready for just to keep him on staff. I understand why he i...

re: Alabama Basketball Season Thread (10-7, 3-2) - Robot Santa
Petty is far more likely than Kira at this point. Kira is an athletic 2 guard playing PG who has too many off nights and doesn't shoot the 3 well enough for an NBA team to use a 1st on him. He also needs to bulk up. With his frame he may literally die going inside against NBA defenders. ...

re: Alabama Basketball Season Thread (10-7, 3-2) - Robot Santa
I think they'd have to adjust the offense a bit for it but I don't mind the idea of Shack and Petty running the point for a couple of minutes here and there. Neither of them can get to the basket the way Kira can but they are competent passers and know the offense. ...
