Kamara’s balance isn’t human
His ability to cut, take shots and never lose speed at the same time is truly special. How on Gods green Earth Butch Jones didn’t start him is beyond me.

I'm still blown away by this. I remember when he was there and thinking he should be getting more touches. I certainly didn't think he was near this good, but he never really got a true chance in college to showcase his talent.

No way he reports to training camp next season without new deal

Same goes for the almighty Saban as he went to Bama initially.

Thank God he didn't. We got a steal and he's fresher than most backs out of college.

The play he waited forever in the backfield and turned nothing into a gain was very impressive.

I thought he got kicked off Bama. I would be willing to bet anything Saban would have eventually started him. Saban doesn’t have all those titles from being a bad judge of talent.

No, he was suspended twice but left on his own. Do you blame him? He was behind TJ Yeldon, Kenyon Drake & Derrick Henry at the time. There weren't enough touches to go around.

In 2015 at Alabama, Tennessee lost 19-14 but during that close game, the Vols has 3-4 designed passes to Kamara out of the backfield that netted good yardage. I couldn't figure out why Jones didn't take advantage of Kamara with even more throws to him. Had Tennessee done that, maybe they would have pulled off the upset that day.

Did you see the video of him catching passes while balancing on an exercise ball?
Amazing

I think you are talking about THIS video. The guy is calling out colors. Kamara then has to catch the object with that color. It's incredible.

re: Kamara’s balance isn’t human
I didn't realize we had almost 150 yard rushing last night. Time was in a shootout game like that we'd have like 60 or 70. That bodes well for us going forward. Murray was pretty good but I'd like to see him get more involved.

EDIT: to add that it's super frustrating that we couldn't get one more first down out of the run game at the end to seal it.

He was forced to against Alabama and he tore their arse up.

I, just by chance, saw the game on CBS and saw this kid ripping Alabama's defense to shreds in the run and passing game.

Gary and Verne both went in depth on his past. I am absolutely certain to my recollection that Sean was at that game just by chance.

Payton was ahead of the curve with the kid somehow from my remembrance of events.

Alabama couldn't stop him. Was like a splinter in your mind as it was so surreal to watch. YouTube likely has the highlights of that game.

Was destiny for the kid to arrive in NO with Sean.

I know it’s just hindsight but it seems like we get really really vanilla and obvious in late game clock killing situations like this and the end of the Minnesota playoff game. Almost like we know we’re not gonna get the first but just plug right into the line.

He totally came in at the wrong time. No matter. Hell, even Tennessee didn't over-use him, thank God.

I think the issue is coach P has been burnt a few times by "getting cute"

I like the attitude SOMETIMES of us going "This is what we are going to do. Stop us" because that is the play where everyone knows their job. Little to no mistakes possible. It comes down to who wants it more sometimes.
