    I think Bama is clearly 1a. Ohio State and Michigan are 1b and then every one else. Clearly Michigan has to remain injury free because they don't have the depth Bama and the Buckeyes do.

    Jonathan Allen is a great talent. He was up against a true freshman all day the kid had no chance, but that play was an impressive display of lower body explosion. He never even had to use any technique. I don't think talent evaluators will make more out of that play than what was really there like the internet has though.

    Yeah you could tell the aTm kid was out matched, but lordy that lunge over the RB trying to block him.

    Do you think he's more of a 3-4 DE or a 4-3 DE at the next level? Or does it really even matter with him?

    I think he's more of a 3T which is what you see him playing there. I'm not sure you can pigeon hole him. You can move him around from a strongside DE in an even front or have him 2-gapping as a 1T in an odd front. He's so versatile as a pass rusher, but also quite refined at 2-gapping and stopping the run on 1st and 2nd down. Super violent hands and just so smart. He really understands football a notch or so higher than most top prospects and has a knack for making huge plays....turnovers.

    I'd love it if the Fins drafted him. They need more players from winning college cultures like Bama. There's some stuff that need to change in that locker room in Davie I think. Plus he's just an awesome player. I love Ruben Foster too.

    I certainly believe there's something to be said for players that come from winning programs. They know how to win. They know what winning feels like and they know what it takes to win. Fact is, you can draft talented players from a lot of different programs, but many of them don't know what it takes to win. They haven't ever experienced it.

    Think about this, there's more players in the NFL right now from Alabama with a Superbowl rings than any other program in the country. Everyone can take that for whatever it's worth to them.

    I've always believed winning is as much a mindset and attitude as it an actual action. It's got to be in your head first before you do it, winning just doesn't happen by accident. At least not sustained success anyway.

    So rumors are that Lane Kiffin is one guy that Purdue is looking at, but knowing Purdue they're going to look at Ed Werringer from OSU

    Lane wants to go back to the west coast...more than likely he'll take the Fresno State job,if he wants to go to a smaller school.

    Lane will probably take the Fresno State job,if he wants a small school head coaching job...he wants to get back to the west coast.

    Made perfect sense to me. I probably forgot what you said by the time I finished reading it the first time anyway. I think we're just old.

    Happy as I was to see Tennessee put us right back in the driver's seat in the East, it almost doesn't matter if we win it. This Alabama team is horrifying.

    Namor, Ted, we will see you in two weeks. Last one in the Georgia Dome before they blow it up, so it's only appropriate that it's us. You'll probably win, but I'm happy we can get to this game again.

    This Bama team might be fighting for the best team ever award. If this were the '07 gators ... maybe. Not this year. Not against that squad. They've got it all.

    It would have been nice to have Auburn beat UGa to make the Iron Bowl really meaningful.

    I saw a graphic, on espn, at luch that said, "Auburn was won 9 of 11 when both are ranked in the top 20."

    That said, If The P12 (UW) gets hosed for the playoffs then I will have no qualms about declaring Roll Tide come early Jan. Sod Ohio State!

    Billy Napier to Arizona State as OC, if I'm not misaken he's been consistently a top 3 recruiter nationally per 247 (though let's be honest with Saban that doesn't matter)

    Great game by Bama. FSU made way too many mistakes to hang with a team of that caliber. You guys lived up to the hype 100%, especially that defense.

    Dude!!!Give your team more credit...Those two teams were dead even until the mistakes came...and I also think Jimbo gave up on the run to early.
    Your defense is elite...

    Jimbo did give up on the run and our defense looked good. Our special teams looked like dog crap, just horrible for an elite team. That's just overshadowing everything for me right now... as well as wondering why Francois was even in the game when he got hurt. Hopefully, we'll get out crap together and earn a rematch.

    Perhaps Nick should sleep over at the kicker's house.

    Go Blue!!

    Probably wouldn't have been dominated so bad if they had just kept quiet and let Bama sleepwalk into that game like they did against Colorado St. and Fresno St.

    But when they started running their mouth, it got Bama's attention. Bad idea.

    I literally started feeling sorry for Vandy. I've seen teams get beat that bad on the scoreboard, but I'm not sure I've ever seen a team get beat that bad on the field physically and mentally. When your 4th stringers have to take 3 knees at the goaline to keep from making it 66-0, it's bad.

    The 599 yardage differential was the biggest in school history, surpassing the
    previous best of 544 yards in the 77-6 blowout of Virginia Tech in '73.

    It's just never a good idea to run your mouth before you play Bama. Florida St. found that out opening day after their president commented that they would beat Alabama pretty bad. Kinda like when all the Miami players were running their mouth back in '92 before they got blown out of the Superdome.

    If it's Alabama, don't do it. Don't get their attention. It's not going to work out for you.

    Hey Ted...as much as I like Jalen,...Tua is going to be hard to keep on the bench.....Throwing the rock.he just looks miles ahead of Jalen in natural ability.

    Tua is more of a natural passer. He processes information and reads defenses a lot faster than Jalen. That won't ever change. It just is what it is.

    The coaching staff knows exactly what you just said, and they know they have a backup now if Jalen were to get injured. That's why Jalen is running more this year.

    He got the green light to go ahead and take off if his first read isn't open. No sense in trying to make him stand back there and go through progressions while the offense goes 3 and out. He just doesn't operate in that aspect fast enough.

    Just let him take off and use his natural athletic talent...you'll punt less and score more. If he gets hurt running, they have Tua. It's exactly how I would handle it too.
