[quote] If you've got players who are accustomed to playing 20 plays per game, they're not going to be at their peak in a tough game where they may have to go 30+ plays at a high level. [/quote] No coach or team in the sport uses games for conditioning purposes. This is what practices (includ...

Dude, the SEC West is legit this year. Our schedule isn't nearly as bad as people think, and after adding the SEC Championship game, we'll likely have the best Strength of Schedule of any playoff team - just like last year. It's En Vogue to shite on Alabama. Don't fall for it. ...

[quote]Trevor Lawrence might be the overall best QB of at least the last two decades[/quote] Who's Bama's QB again? [quote], but especially at a team as loaded as Clemson.[/quote] Anyone who's remotely informed about both teams knows Clemson has MANY more question marks than Bama does as o...

Could we beat Duke if every Bama player wore an eyepatch and drank 9 Budweisers?...

I don't think 3 degrees below room temperature matters when the body is warm. The issue would be in the trenches. I think we'd have to pass and run east and west. A lot of trap blocking if running between the tackles. We're really not gonna push people around in bare feet. The other issue is a...

[quote]Hmmmmm gonna need to know field conditions[/quote] Perfectly cut grass (not too high, not too low), sunny, rained 3 days before but none since, and a temperature of 69 degrees F. Wind out of the east at 1 knot. September 32nd, 12:60pm kickoff. ...

No worries, friend. You can have that one. I have a new solution. It's simple. We should play both ways in the first half. The defense plays the whole first quarter. Offense plays the second. It'd be fine. I'm sure half our defensive backfield played QB in high school. Run 4 verticals with Su...

Then we need to manufacture some drama. Start the 3s, bring in the 2s for the 2nd and most of the 3rd quarter, and then bring in the starters after a random TV break in with a few minutes left in the 3rd - hopefully while losing. That'll do it. ...

re: Boz - Pre Fall Camp Updates Needed - prevatt33
But don't get me wrong - "Do we have a kicker?" is one of my biggest questions going in to the 2019 season. However, I've been arguing against Bama fans' railing about kicking woes for a few years now, and I will continue to do so. Way too many fans highlight the misses and don't remember the ...

[quote]“Well we still won so it doesn’t matter”. No offense but that’s ignorant. [/quote] No offense taken, but that's not what I'm saying at all. I'm trying to directly argue against the idea that kicking has been an extended problem in the Saban era, when it clearly hasn't been. [quote]We h...

re: Boz - Pre Fall Camp Updates Needed - prevatt33
Additionally, every year, most teams in college football have issues with kicking that cost or nearly cost them a win or multiple wins. It's commonplace in all levels of organized football. Hell, Blankenship, maybe the best kicker in GA history, was so off in their last game versus us that he missed...

re: Boz - Pre Fall Camp Updates Needed - prevatt33
So? We had a bad year kicking. It doesn't mean there's a curse. It just means that you, and other fans like you, are so in the clouds as Bama fans that you can't believe that we just weren't good enough - there must be a supernatural explanation because THE University of Alabama can't possibly be 'j...

[quote]The Saban comments on Josh Jobe today were interesting. quote: “Josh Jobe has made a tremendous amount of improvement and has matured very nicely,” Saban said. “And we view him as a guy that is a potential starter and a guy that is playing in a way that, throughout the spring, that we ha...

[quote]he doesn’t get the Bama Curse [/quote] I admit that some kickers for us haven't been the all-world kickers that we hoped they'd be when we signed them as top recruits at their positions, but we as Bama fans can't act like our kicking has been awful during this dynasty. Kicking has helped ...

[quote]Afraid to ask, but do we have a kicker or punter this season?[/quote] Regarding Punter, while being interviewed on air on ESPN during the Spring game, Saban specifically called attention to a great punt by DeLong and the fact that he struggled with confidence in game settings last year, bu...

[quote]Tua struggling with pro-style stuff is pretty concerning IMO.[/quote] It's perfectly normal for a QB - any QB - to have a learning curve when changing offenses or implementing new stuff, and Tua's no different. He's not Superman. The other thing to remember is that it's July. If Tua is ...

[quote]3. Who is looking good at this point? Tauila or Paul?[/quote] This stands as it did after Spring, as there haven't been any organized practices. At most, there have only been player-organized skeleton drills and such. All we know is that the best of the 2 sits firmly 3rd string, well behin...
