    N'Kosi Perry provides Mark Richt with an intriguing pet project

    Perry just arrived on campus last week, and he has a lot of catching up to do before he’s even pushing for a starting gig. But that’s the fun of it for Richt. The work matters, his hands get dirty and the results are dictated by the job he can do bringing his young QB along. That’s the way it’s supposed to be.

    I usually prefer to stay out of these discussions, but the problem with this guy is that he's a notorious Alabama hater and much of what he says can easily be dismissed with even remedial knowledge of facts.

    He mentioned Ray Lewis, Warren Sapp, Edge James, Vilma, Michael Irvin, Cortez Kennedy as Miami guys that came I in and dominated the NFL. Leaving out a laundry list of players from Miami that were "just guys" or flat out busts.

    Apparently he's never heard of Derrick Thomas, Cornelius Bennett, Shaun Alexander, Julio Jones, Amarillo Cooper, Marcell Dareus, Dwight Stephenson, or John Hannah just to name a few, who came in and dominated the NFL.

    Miami has never put any offensive lineman in the NFL as good as John Hannah or Dwight Stephenson. They've barely put any in the NFL as good as Chris Samuels was. Compare the careers of Bama offensive lineman in the NFL vs. Bama's. It's not close. Even when comparing the "just guys".

    He makes the claim that all Miami guys just come in and dominated the NFL, and all Alabama guys disappear in the NFL. Obviously just blatant falsehood. He never bothers to correct himself even somewhat.

    Compare Julio Jones first 6 or 7 years in the NFL to Irvin's first 6 or 7 years. Julio wins. Edge was a great back, but Alexander was just as great. Backs like Joseph Addai were automatic plug and play for 1,000 yards and 10 TD's in the Colts offense with Peyton and Marvin Harrison.

    As hyped as Sean Taylor was, he was widely regarded as a disappointment in the NFL for as high as he was drafted. He was just beginning to get closer to becoming the player he was hyped to be. Landon Collins is developing into the player Taylor was, and only in his 2nd season. He's already the best safety in the league.

    Alabama had 6 players make the Pro Bowl last year. There's more on the way. Furthermore, Alabama has 8 players in the NFL Hall of Fame, with more on the way. Lastly, more Alabama players currently have Superbowl rings than any other school.

    Here's the truth.....All the big schools have good players and all have busts. Alabama gets a bad rap because of media bias, SEC fatigue, and dislike of Saban. Meanwhile Miami tends to get a lot of fluff and nobody ever mentions the long list of busts or underachievers.

    This bozo knows Alabama can put their list of NFL players up against anybody's. But nobody can put their list of national championships up against Alabama's. Which is why NFL players and their accomplishments become a talking point for some programs to begin with. Especially his two pet programs USC and Miami.

    I can't even remember the last Miami player to come in and be great, and dominated the NFL. Maybe that's why he's sitting up there talking about Cortez Kennedy and Michael Irvin.

    But what else would you expect from the biased moron who only a few years ago said Bama's dynasty was over and Gus Malzahn was gonna own Nick Saban. Play that one on YouTube.

    I knew that this article would get a response from the Bama guys :)

    If the reporter would have said this 10 years ago i would have agreed but Bama has certainly been dominant both on the field and in sending kids to the next level that have stellar careers in recent history.

    LOL I saw journalist Matt Porter break his sandwich habits down earlier. Hilarious.

    Excited for the season. Loved the reports on the Paradise camp with all the former players.

    I am more of a pocket QB fan but I like what this kid can do (or potentially do). I say start him ASAP because he is the future and every rep he gets will only help him. Someone better be in his ear early to stay for his Senior season. ;)

    Report: Alabama, Miami in negotiations to play in 2021 Chik-fil-A Kickoff Game

    Alabama is getting set to open the 2017 season in the Chik-fil-A Kickoff Game against Florida State, and another appearance in the annual event could be arriving in the near future.

    Alabama is reportedly in negotiations with Miami to square off in the 2021 installment of the Chik-fil-A Kickoff Game, according to Aaron Suttles of The Tuscaloosa News, citing a source.

    Both teams have not faced each other since the 1993 Sugar Bowl when Alabama defeated Miami by a score of 34-13 to capture its 12th national championship.

    It was previously reported that both Louisville and Ole Miss would be competing in the 2021 Chik-fil-A Kickoff Game.

    It's Rosier but Evan and Perry will probably get some playing time the first two games.

    Here's what Perry brings to the table

    I just don't know how excited I am about Rosier as the QB. I guess we will see in a few weeks. :nailbiting

    He'll be ok if we get Walton going and the OL holds up. Evan is pretty good as well just doesn't have the arm for the long throws. Perry is the most talented but he's not ready yet.
    The defense will carry the day. The O just needs to put up a few points and not turn over the ball.
