re: Are we done with pretending Milroe is a heisman caliber qb? - droliver
He is what he is. A true freaky deaky athlete that Can make unbelievable plays with his legs & throw the ball 50 yards fairly accurately. Unfortunately he is bad a pre/post snap reads, processes the field slowly most of the time, and his accuracy at short to medium depth is atrocious. Now after ...

re: Why Michigan beat Bama and UGA did not - droliver
[quote]They blitzed[/quote] True, but that was largely adjusted to after Q1 and I think they only had 1 sack the rest of the game. What let UM stay in the game was Milroe making several bad decisions (the slide short of a certain first down, the fumble, multiple dump offs behind the LOS, the ...

re: I'm proud / bitter sweet* - droliver
We over achieved but still ended up with a disappointing 2 loss season with inconsistent play on offense from start to finish, wasting a championship quality defense. While exciting, we had a lot of games we could have lost all season long. Milroe is so exciting running but so inconsistent in pre...

re: Guess BoB did get that last laugh - droliver
Milroe is a truly magnificent athlete but lacks many fundamental skills to be consistent at QB. When Milroe was named starter I said the ceiling of this team was 2-3 losses. They certainly over waaaaay achieved winning the SEC, but Milroe's limitations caught up with us and we will finish with an...

re: If Milroe follows his block as the play is designed - droliver
The bad snap kind of crippled the potential for the play to work. I don't know if ive ever seen one center get the yips so bad that every 2nd or 3rd snap was bad...

re: An argument could be made Daniels just had the best SEC regular season - droliver
JD was the most electric player I saw this year, just a monster season for LSU’s whole offensive unit. He quietly maybe had the greatest offensive season in SEC history even though they just never looked as dominant as the Burrow teams or the Tua/Jones/Young units at Alabama...

[quote]It is also….. Any forcible contact to head/neck of a defenseless player. Seems like he nailed him in the chin. If so, Not a legal hit.[/quote] Facemask was planted in the chest. There wasn't a blow to the head/neck as defined in the rules. This was confirmed by the booth review...

Nope. Was reviewed in the booth who confirmed the call. The Turner's head was up with the facemask in his chest and he did not launch. By definition, it was not targeting...

re: My take on yesterday's lackluster performance - droliver
A) Arkansas has some talent on offense, which you could see in their game with LSU. B) Milroe’s limitations on presnap reads, the speed he processes the field, and inaccuracy on short/intermediate throws are going to gum up the offense enough we are never going to pull away from anyone even when ...

re: Tua is the best qb in the NFL - droliver
There's no disputing it he's been the top QB in the league this season (and large parts of 2022 FWIW). You always worry he's one concussion away from being done, but right now he's a super star...

re: (OT) Does anyone in Bham area have experience going to a school in different district? - droliver
Hoover, Spain Park, Vestavia, Chelsea, Homewood, Mtn Brook, etc…. are all fine schools. The OTM suburbs are an embarrassment of riches as it relates to options for getting a very good to great public school education. They all have different personalities and varying degrees of diversity, but they’...

re: When conferences inevitably expand again, we need to focus on North Carolina and Virginia. - droliver
The premise here is off and 20+ years out of date on what drives values. The era of expanding for some population center is kind of dead. What drives media rights value now is brand value (eyeballs). It’s why SEC schools in small population states are worth significant more then schools like Nor...
