| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Have we gotten what we paid for? - jddawg58 on 4/2/13 at 4:23 pm|
I don' t want CAG fired but I am disappointed in both on the court results and Bama's offensive production. The team has phenomenal athletes but no great basketball players.
The team does not take advantage of its athleticism by pushing the ball up the floor. Bama appears to have no idea about h...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Pre Saban/McCarron quarterback thread - jddawg58 on 3/4/13 at 1:38 pm|
The only caveat is that Stallings liked it conservative so I don't think Croyle would have thrown as much.
Stallings was interviewed about the championship year of 1992 and why what was perceived as an above average Tide won it all. He responded," We were blessed with a QB who could not throw...

You're wrong. That is a chop block. The defender is on his way down. That is why it appears he is hitting him in the side/ribs.
A chop block requires one offensive player to initiate contact below the waist while another offensive player has the same defender engaged above the waist. It is co...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Bama 's chances to make the NCAA - jddawg58 on 2/22/13 at 12:49 am|
I think Bama could make it to the tournament, if they can win 4 of their last 5 conferemce games. This means they win @ LSU, beat AU at home, lose @ FL, win @ Ole Miss, and beat GA at home. That will be tough to do, but I think Bama can steal Ole Miss' NCAA berth with a win at Oxford and only losin...

Have you not heard, JFF is transfering to Tuscaloosa. He has a sick Grandfather in Alabama. He is eligible to play next year according to the NCAA. Saban told him he could be Bama's Wildcat QB.

Yes they all got out coached
I thought FLA went away from who they are and what they do. They are a smashmouth FB team. They come out and throw a pick six, run wide on 2nd and goal. They have played field position and great defense all year and in the Sugar Bowl they try 3 onside kicks.

Star-G.Smith(Fulton replaces outside)
Money-Sunseri/Williams(Different situational work)
Are any of the 2013 signee CBs and Ss going to be EEs this spring? What position does Eddie Williams play going forward?
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Dee Miliner - jddawg58 on 12/28/12 at 8:10 pm|
Any chance he returns?
He is likely the first CB to be selected in the draft, in the first 10, so no.

Amazingly, almost all the scholarship juniors have played this year. The only one who didn't participate in a game was William Ming. Chris Bonds only played in two games this year.
Unless CNS is aware of a large group of Present players who wish to transfer, I don't know how Bama signs a class o...

As far as scholarship seniors that Bama is losing , I only count 10.

This assumes that Tinker and Shelley were on scholarship, and I am assuming...

If Greg just takes the snap and kneels every play he'll be better than Sanchez.
Rex told Greg that in order to win the job over Sanchez, he can throw only two interceptions and have only 1 butt-fumble. LOL
I hope Gmac has an outstanding day. Maybe the rest of the Jets haven't already put t...

Greg McElroy was offered a scholarship to Alabama late (after he committed to Texas Tech) after Tebow told Shula he was going to Florida.
McElroy redshirts and sits 2 years behind JP Wilson. Tebow wins a Heisman and 2 NC while at UF.
Greg finally is starter and beats Tebow in SECCG in 2009. Gr...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Greg McElroy to start Sunday against the Chargers - jddawg58 on 12/19/12 at 7:16 pm|
There are plenty of questions about him but if he turns it over less than 3 times per game he'll be an improvement over Sanchez and that would've been enough to get the Jets in the playoffs this year.
Greg has the highest QBR of any Jets QB. The problem is that he has a very limited sample si...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: A few notes about practice today - jddawg58 on 12/18/12 at 6:13 pm|
You can apply for medical redshirt if you have not participated in over 20% of the contests and the injury occurs in the first half of the season.
14 games x .20 = 2.8 or 3 games.
Did Fowler play in more than 3 games?...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Greg McElroy to start Sunday against the Chargers - jddawg58 on 12/18/12 at 3:45 pm|
I can't believe Gmac was not activated for the Titans game. If he had played after Sanchez thru his third interception, he would have lead them to his second win and they would still be in the playoff hunt.
Instead, Ryan choses to go with 6 receivers. What a joke, 6 receivers and no one to throw...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: So it looks like GMAC won't get his fair chance - jddawg58 on 12/7/12 at 5:38 pm|
Greg only had one rep in practice, and had never even been activated before the last game. In spite of being essentially ignored, he came in and lead the team to a score and a win.
He was the only QB in preseason to throw a td pass. He was the best performing QB in last year's preseason before he...
| SEC Rant|| re: Ryan Kelly Appreciation Thread - jddawg58 on 12/6/12 at 3:56 pm|
Perhaps your hostility should be tempered by the fact that this team was chosen by SEC coaches and you could not vote for your own players. Kelly was selected for the honor by the 13 coaches other than Saban.
There probably aren't any Freshmen starting at center in the SEC, thus a back-up who re...

Anyone who doesn't think so, just looked at how GA took apart Bama's defense when Damion Square was forced to move to NT. Jesse has more to do with Bama's rush defense than any of the other players, he keeps the LBs clean.
Geno Smith also played an excellent game. Now if Bama would just find a wa...

For a GA team that is loaded with NFL talent, including having what many said were early round draft picks as Dlinemen, they sure gave up a ton of yards rushing and were dominated by Ala's Oline.
Does this result affect the draft status of GA's defensive players, or does it merely improve the sta...
