'08 is the only year he's in the argument for #1. Excluding '05 he was at least top 5 from '00 to '10....
re: Who's the #1 Freak-Athlete Prospect Next Year? - imraged on 2/8/14 at 12:53 pm[quote] throughout the thread had folks trying to diminish LF[/quote]
Still getting trolled by Bucc :lol:
BTW the first response was a fact. Neither 247 nor Rivals had Fournette #1. So I don't see how he can be considered "far beyond everyone else."...
re: Alabama fans, tell us how good (or bad) Jacob Coker will be. - imraged on 1/26/14 at 2:45 pm[quote]Best offer out of high school was Florida State (Duke, Arkansas State, South Alabama, Mississippi State)[/quote]
That's not really indicative of his ability. There are plenty of factors that can lead to a kid flying under the radar (you mentioned the main one in this case yourself). Rivers...
re: Questions about WR recruiting and development at Bama - imraged on 1/25/14 at 1:13 pmLooking at it year-by-year:
07 - Brandon Gibson was our highest rated WR recruit. He barely saw the field in his career.
08 - Unless you count B.J. Scott, who most viewed as a DB coming out, Julio was our only WR in this class
09 - We took four receivers and the lowest rated ended up having...

re: Coker to Bama per ESPN - imraged on 1/22/14 at 11:26 pm[quote]TideSaint[/quote]
[quote]To be fair, St Pauls ran a Wing T right after AJ left which really hampered Coker's recruitment. There just wasn't enough film of him throwing the football to warrant any interest. FSU got him in camp and they were blown away by his arm strength. Credit Jimbo and s...
re: Alabama's best corner under Saban? - imraged on 1/12/14 at 8:02 pmSo did Milliner.
Though even if Brown does play I wouldn't expect much. Besides maybe the Juco guys I can't think of any first year DBs we've had under Saban who had noticeably positive impacts....
re: Is It Possible To Have Too Much Talent? - imraged on 1/12/14 at 5:25 pmNo what we've seen is just that you're naturally going to have down years in "amateur" athletics even at the level we recruit. I wouldn't be surprised if we have another one next year with all of our losses on defense. Sometimes your experience and talent just don't peak in the same year.
re: Gus Johnson please take notes on Al michaels - imraged on 1/5/14 at 12:00 amI usually like Michaels but he sounded disinterested during the call. He shouldn't try to be something he's not but it wouldn't hurt to be just a little excited about a gw fg.
The worst offender in this regard is Joe Buck. His call on the Tyree catch was downright terrible. Dude sounded like he w...
