I have a business associate who does advertising with Crimson Tide Sports Network. As part of this commitment, his business if given 4 practice passes so he and three others can attend one fall practice each year. This is truly behind the scenes after the media is gone stuff. Observations from Fr...
| SEC Rant|| Crazy stat re: wins over top 10 teams - bamasgot13 on 7/28/14 at 2:31 pm|
Bama has more wins against top 10 teams the last five years (14) than all but 5 FBS schools have against top 25 teams.

| SEC Rant|| SEC Network, Directv, and You - bamasgot13 on 7/25/14 at 5:54 pm|
Directv will likely get SEC Network soon. We all believe so anyway. I called today to cancel service and site lack of SEC Network as reason. They gave me the following to stay:
$50 off bill for 6 months,
$40 off bill for 6 months after that,
$100 one time bill credit,
$100 Visa gift card,
| Alabama Sports Board|| The current Bama roster against Top 25 & Top 10 competition - bamasgot13 on 11/21/13 at 6:26 pm|
The players that make up the current Bama roster (RS SRs down to TFr) have the following record against "quality competition"
Top 25: Bama is 23-4
Top 10: Bama is 13-3
I remember when we were 0-15 under Shula in games that we trailed entering the 4th qtr. I love how different our team is now...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Interesting Stat on Kenyan Drake - bamasgot13 on 10/22/13 at 4:09 pm|
Kenyan Drake and Marcus Mariota are the only two in CFB to reach 17 rushes of 10+ yds with less than 70 att. They’ve done it in under 50.
That means that in Drake's 49 carries, 35% of the time he rushes for 10+ yards. That's insane!...
| SEC Rant|| Question for LSU and Florida fans - need clarity - bamasgot13 on 10/10/13 at 8:01 am|
You've both had fans start threads claiming the other team's strength (LSU on O, and UF on D) are over rated. I have a simple question in hopes of gaining a consensus of opinion from each fan base:
LSU fans - do you think UF's defense is really good, or is it just they've played weak offensive te...
| SEC Rant|| Question regarding Kentucky/Bama upset possibility - bamasgot13 on 10/10/13 at 5:21 am|
If Bama loses to Kentucky in a close, surprising way but runs the table the rest of the way and wins the SEC, do you think a one loss Bama gets in over another one loss team like Stanford or Oregon?
(Scenario assumes only one undefeated team this year. Thanks for opinions)...
| Help Board|| Access to AU board - bamasgot13 on 9/26/13 at 2:25 pm|
Request access to post with those guys on the AU board. Check the post history. I don't flame AU the school, the team, the players, or the fans.
I enjoy talking about common interests (i.e. recruits, opponents, etc). I know the past policy has been no access by AU mods, but given the olive bra...
| SEC Rant|| Is LSU's defensive game plan vanilla again? - bamasgot13 on 9/21/13 at 10:06 pm|
Haven't seen much of the game. Just wondering what the game plan has been since yet another inferior opponent has put up solid number and points on that D.
Thanks in advance. ...
| SEC Rant|| Time to call some people out - bamasgot13 on 9/15/13 at 11:28 am|
Saban & Smart - you've obviously forgotten how to coach defense.
Sunseri, Clinton-Dix, Hubbard, DePriest, Mosley, Geno Smith, Pagan, Dickson, Belue - you all started or played significant roles last year. You've lost your talent and mental capacity to process schemes.
These people need to be...
| SEC Rant|| Great game Aggies - bamasgot13 on 9/14/13 at 11:03 pm|
Incredible heart, effort, and determination. When bama got up 35-14 i thiught i could relax. Wrong. Also, Manziel is even better than I thought.
Can't wait to see you guys play against LSU. I know they think little of Bama's D and your O. Should be interesting to see their approach to Johnny. ...
| SEC Rant|| Reminder of story breaking to punishment given process: - bamasgot13 on 9/11/13 at 8:07 pm|
1) story breaks
2) rivals laugh
3) fans freak out, get defensive, accept pending "fate", then realize not gonna be as bad as they think
4) NCAA drags feet
5) rivals realize not going to be as bad as they'd hoped
6) minor penalties come or story fades
It's predictable ev...

I've seen it posted that "Espnu could carry his announcement in the Friday College Football Live if they wanted. The delay is because Cam isn't sure".
Cam may very well not be sure, but CFB live likely could NOT carry his announcement tomorrow. Some on here know I worked in TV for yrs before goi...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Interesting stat for AJ - bamasgot13 on 8/10/13 at 10:20 am|
He often (and incorrectly) gets the wrap of "check down QB". I've seen other fans point to screens, dumps, and slants to claim his high completion percentage is a propped up number. They claim he's not accurate deep. I saw this stat this morning which completely destroys that argument:
| SEC Recruiting|| Bama's RB depth explained - bamasgot13 on 2/6/13 at 4:59 pm|
Yeldon - Starter. 15-18 carries per game (gone in 2 years)
Drake - likely first off bench. 5-8 carries per game.
Fowler - not an RB in 2013. He's an H-back.
Calloway - not an RB in 2013. H-Back or TE.
Hart - not gonna get many carries at RB. He will play PR/KR. Wouldn't ...

Stop saying the only reason you miss on kids is because others are cheating and you guys are above it and wont play along. Sometimes a kid just prefers another school. Sometimes he prefers another staff. Sometimes another team's staff just did a better job than your staff (see AU with Adams). An...

Not exactly proving to be an AU man. He's such a POS. I hope AU's legal team can get out of paying him another penny. I'm not an AU hater and AU doesn't deserve his shite. ...
| SEC Rant|| Why is Manziel catching so much heat from the Rant? - bamasgot13 on 1/23/13 at 10:26 am|
For the most part, the guy is doing the exact same shite that all of us did at 20 (going to whatever clubs we could get in, going to whatever casinos we could get in, chasing skirt, etc), but he's just on a national spotlight. He's acting like a 20 year old in a college town.
Sure he has some e...

Pick one to predict, predict multiple, predict all. Have fun.
Saban - I'm gonna say Bama. I will say there is a chance (25%) that he goes NFL.
Andy Reid - Cardinals HC
Norv Turner - OC in Baltimore (no inside info. Strictly a WAG)
Lovie Smith - Bills HC, DC in NFC, or unemployed
