re: Alabama Basketball Megathread | 12-3 (7-0) - Robot Santa
Yeah I'd actually be pleasantly surprised if we won this game. It's got all the makings of a letdown game aside from us being at home. But no crowd kind of negates that. ...

[quote]Question - What is "lineup usage"?[/quote] I'm 99% sure that refers to the % of total minutes played that any given 5 player lineup was on the court and each of the logos on the chart represents a unique lineup used by that team this season. ...

re: Lunardi's latest bracketology has Tide and Vols as 3 seeds - Robot Santa
[quote]I won't argue that Bama was shooting well, but bad is exactly what I would call LSU's defense that night. I guess they were "guarded" in the sense that someone was within 4 feet with a hand in the air. They played decent perimeter defense on some possessions, but certainly not 90% of them to ...

[quote] Lot of Saban vibes/mentality all in here. The culture of this program is going to be incredible.[/quote] Gary laying out to save a loose ball while we were up 40 with 10 minutes to go in the game was pretty indicative of a drastic change in overall team attitude. ...

re: Lunardi's latest bracketology has Tide and Vols as 3 seeds - Robot Santa
[quote]It's the point where I think opposing teams take worse shots and make more mistakes when the other team hits 7 threes in a row in the first 5 minutes. [/quote] So what about the other 14 games where we didn't do that? Just gonna ignore those? ...

[quote]Good but inflated IMO.[/quote] Inflated by what? Is this the point in the discussion where you play the "herp derp, but muh asterisk" card? Because we have played a pretty challenging schedule thus far. It's not like we have gone on a cupcake binge this season. ...

Getting Bruner back by mid-February with enough time to re-integrate him into the rotation and get his legs back under him before postseason play would be ideal. ...

re: Bama FB Recruiting & Roster - Robot Santa
[quote]I think LSU signing Ryan does prohibit LSU hiring any of his HS coaches for an off-field staff job.[/quote] Yeah looking at the rule it's 2 years both ways, previous to hiring him and after hiring him. So yeah, if they hire him it has to be to an on field role and they can't recruit that h...

re: Alabama Basketball Megathread | 12-3 (7-0) - Robot Santa
Yeah I'm too young to have any significant memories of Wimp's best teams, so I honestly have zero frame of reference for approaching a basketball postseason with expectations rather than hopes. I suppose you could count Gottfried's 2002 fiasco. ...

[quote]Wouldn’t he have to be an on field coach? That would be..interesting[/quote] Only if that high school has any rising juniors or seniors that LSU wants to recruit. Otherwise he can just be an analyst. ...

re: Legendary son of the Deep South Hank Aaron has passed away - Robot Santa
This offseason has fricking sucked. Both sleeves of our uniforms are going to be covered in commemorative patches. They need to put Bobby in bubble wrap. I hear he hasn't been doing well lately. ...

re: Yahoo: We could end up with 5 QBs taken in Round 1 of the NFL draft - Robot Santa
[quote]how many of those are YACs and completions under 7 yds of LOS. My guess it’s 80% or more![/quote] Your guess would be wrong. Really not even close. 145 of Mac's 402 attempts on the year traveled at least 11 yards in the air. So even spotting you a few yards on your < 7 in the air predicti...

[quote]His 2019 season was pretty absurd. 3,700 passing yards, 560 rushing yards and 45 total touchdowns vs 8 interceptions.[/quote] You're still missing the point. Those numbers don't even touch the production of recent top draft pick QBs who were similarly situated in terms of scheme, suppor...

[quote]What was particularly special about Andrew Luck’s stats while he was at Stanford?[/quote] I really don't think that is an appropriate comparison. That was 10 years ago, before offensive production exploded, in a very conservative system. I guess my question is, what was stopping Lawrence f...
