re: Bryant vs Hurts QB Comparison per CFB Film Room - BigBird09
[quote]Not sure how you can say that Bryant is much better under pressure when Jalen has 3 tds and 0 ints, while Bryant has 0 touchdowns and 2 ints, AND takes more sacks[/quote] Precisely. I'm not saying Hurts is a great passer, but I feel like most people on this board would admit to wanting Bry...

re: Bryant vs Hurts QB Comparison per CFB Film Room - BigBird09
How are people not realizing that the completions under pressure for Jalen are a direct result of being careful with the ball and throwing it away. This is why Jalen has thrown 3 more TDs and no interceptions. The difference in TDs to INTs under pressure is more of a glaring stat than the completion...

re: Alabama 82 @ Arizona 88 - BigBird09
[quote]He misses most of his shots (even wide open ones)[/quote] This is true. Blows my mind considering his form is great and looks consistent. [quote] he looks scared to play defense and Zona players were flying right by him to the bucket, and the third thing is it seems like he's lost that...

re: 2017-18 Alabama Basketball Season Thread: 7-3 (0-0) - BigBird09
Still completely blown away by the fact Collin Sexton got kicked in the face right in front of the ref and no foul was called. They review it and no flagrant. The commentator's kept talking about intention, but it doesn't matter. Excessive contact to the head and neck area is an automatic flagrant. ...

re: 2017-18 Alabama Basketball Season Thread: 7-3 (0-0) - BigBird09
I think Sexton is going to win us some road games that we wouldn't even have a chance of winning without him. The dude thrives in adversity like no other player I've seen at this level. It's a big reason to be excited even if we just squeak into the tournament. ...

I think Ayton is going to get his tonight, but if we hold Alkins and Trier to just 30 points between the 2 we should have a chance to win if Sexton has another great game and 2 of Ingram, Petty, and Hall have a solid scoring night....

[quote]Last year under this format, a win @Pitt (16-17) would have been considered a better win than a home win against Southern Cal (26-10) [/quote] It's crazy the difference between Basketball and Football's view of road wins. In football it's barely even mentioned at the end of the year. You ei...

re: Possibilities if Tua plays vs Clemson - BigBird09
[quote]Alabama was very fortunate that a lot of the teams we played weren't very good offensively. When I look ahead at the offense(s) we'll be up against in the playoffs, I don't see them missing the opportunities that LSU and MSU did.[/quote] Exactly. The Mississippi State game was a defensive ...

re: Possibilities if Tua plays vs Clemson - BigBird09
[quote]OK, but I'm also telling it to the people that use wins and losses to prop up Hurts. And, that's the discussion here, not McElroy and Sims.[/quote] Okay back to stats then, if that's what you want to talk about. AJ McCarron produced 5,549 yards of offense in his first 2 years as a starting...

re: Possibilities if Tua plays vs Clemson - BigBird09
[quote]Yes it’s true but stop acting like he’s the reason we’re winning these games. [/quote] When y'all stop acting like he's the only reason we're losing these games. [quote]it’s annoying when people associate QBs with wins.[/quote] It's also annoying when people associate them with losi...

[quote]Wins and losses are not individual stats. [/quote] Tell that to the fan base that constantly ranks McElroy above Blake Sims as an all-time QB. ...

re: Possibilities if Tua plays vs Clemson - BigBird09
[quote]Over the course of the game he will slowly just not do enough to win. Just like against Auburn, there was never a definitive moment to bench Jalen until it was too late.[/quote] My God, our fan base is irrational. Hurts has lost 2 games through his true Freshman and Sophomore campaigns. He...

re: Is Avery the Orgeron of SEC basketball? - BigBird09
[quote]Petty is Grizzard, Grizzard is Petty[/quote] I can't believe people on here thought he was going to be better than Sexton. He's too one-dimensional and he's streaky in that one dimension. Jones is our 2nd best freshman thus far. I think Petty is going to win us some games, but also shoo...

re: 2017-18 Alabama Basketball Season Thread: 7-3 (0-0) - BigBird09
[quote]Vegas line is Bama -11. Seems a little high to me. I thought La Tech was a decent team[/quote] That seems about right. They are a decent team (Top 100 kind of team), but they're playing a top 25 team on the road. The only line that surprised me thus far was the double digit favorite we ...

[quote] Avery said they practiced a fight between Donta Hall and Landon Fuller in practice today he said they went over what exactly to do so we won't have that problem again.[/quote] A little confused as to why Hall wasn't one of the bench players... He was the player that was the first off t...

re: Bama Number 5 - BigBird09
I think this is good news for us, but I think everybody expected us to be at 5. The big thing is that Auburn is at #2 and Fresno State is at #25. I think the way this is set up, it would be better for us if Auburn wins. If so, Alabama's only loss will be to the #2 (#1 if Clemson loses) team in th...

re: Are any of you hoping Auburn wins Saturday? - BigBird09
I'm not rooting for Auburn to win. I'm hoping for a rematch where Alabama pounds the shite out of them. If UGA wins, well then I hope they drop 50 and make Malzahn cry. ...

[quote] I'd be cautious. We heard the same thing about Purifoy last year and he came back weeks ahead of expectations I'd expect him to play a very limited role for a couple weeks[/quote] He was still out for a few weeks. Petty may play in the next game. This is clearly not the same injury. ...

re: If we don’t make the playoff with a Wisconsin loss, the Playoff Committee is a sham. - BigBird09
[quote]Well, I watched what Iowa did to a team with a solid run game and a shaky pass game against Ohio State........so..........yea I think we could lose to Iowa. [/quote] Yeah, but did you see what Wisconsin's run game did to them? Their QB had 135 Passing yards and 3 interceptions and they ...
