NFL Head Coaching jobs will open. One guy that many expect to jump if given the chance is Brian Kelly. If that happens, Notre Dame becomes the most attractive available college job. Who do you think they chase?...
| Coaching Changes|| On this date in 2006 in the Alabama Football Coaching Search - bamasgot13 on 12/8/14 at 4:22 pm|
Rich Rodriguez either turned down the Alabama offer or, if some are to be believed, was informed by Alabama that they were going in a different direction.
There are some who say Sexton called Mal Moore and asked what the hell he was doing. Mal said that they were concerned about losing the recru...

Betting on where Harbaugh coaches in 2015 was suspended today by some books after heavy dollars placed moved odds on Michigan from 8:1 to 2:1. Looks like books think someone may know something. ...

How many of you living in or around Birmingham have ever:
1) attended a single UAB game
2) attended more than one UAB game
3) regularly attended UAB games (one or more per year)
Thanks in advance. Just trying to see how many among us that care so much about UAB have ever shown the sligh...
| SEC Rant|| Question on AU playcalling - 1st Offensive Play of Game - bamasgot13 on 12/1/14 at 10:48 am|
Serious question. Not a flame, just haven't seen it addressed:
Why, with CAP, Corey Grant, Duke Williams, Sammie Coates, and the threat that is Nick Marshall - did AU swing call a pass to a FR RB on the first play of the game?
It just seemed odd to me. Were there ever any stories that Malzah...

| SEC Rant|| Saban and Miles - from someone who worked for both - bamasgot13 on 11/4/14 at 9:29 am|
I always enjoy LSU week because the teams are usually so similar, the games are such a dog fight, and the coaches offer an extreme - and enjoyable - style contrast.
A buddy of mine worked in the football operations staff at LSU for Saban's last year and for Miles' first two years.

Good to see this type of thing. The rivarly should be more about respect - like they players show each other - and less about idiots like Updyke.

After not playing at all last year, Ro has shown flashes of his potential. A group ranks players by performance and grade at their position each week. Ro ranked 2nd among all MLBs in the NFL, behind only Luke Kuechly.

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.

Bama has more wins against top 10 teams the last five years (14) than all but 5 FBS schools have against top 25 teams.

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,

| 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. ...

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. ...
