    I think Louisville has the top WR group in the ACC, at worst the #2 group in the ACC.

    It takes a while for secondary players to grasp Saban's scheme, and Alabama is fixing to field a brand new one across the board. Nothing but young'ns. I expect some mistakes in our secondary early in the season as players get up to speed.

    I don't really disagree with Dez Fitzpatrick's comments. Problem is, like you said, there's more that has to happen than beating the inexperienced DB's one on one for plays to be successful.

    Agreed they'll go bowling. I see 6 or 7 wins for the Cards in 2018.

    I agree with you on WR Corp. The freshman that Bobby brought in are blazing fast. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Tutu Atwell makes a play or 2 during the game. He was here in the spring and transitioned to WR nicely.

    I think we can finish with 8 wins.

    I'm afraid we'll have to win some shootouts with Tua much more often than we're accustomed to...which might mean somewhere around 2 or 3.

    The TV crowd will love it, but just means a few more gray hairs for me.

    No way around missing a player like Minkah.

    Will also miss the experience and "want to" of kids like Levi Wallace and Anthony Averett. The physicality, smarts and presence of Ronnie Harrison. At least early in the season.

    But this new young secondary will be enormously more athletic and physically talented than last year. It's just a matter of getting em up to speed and gaining some experience.

    Growing pains early are to be expected. Coach Saban will have most of the mistakes corrected by the time SEC play begins...aight.

    He was kinda good. I remember his accident and how sure he was going to recover and play again ... to the point that I believed him (I was 16 or 17). I was shocked he didn't make it.

    Him and LT would be starting on either side of my all time 3-4 D.

    shot at a win in Tuscaloosa this year?

    Probably wouldn't presume zero.

    More like .0014

    Saban will have them boys convinced they're a 3 TD underdog to A&M by the time they kickoff.

    He's celebrating something alright. Hopefully he'll be celebrating somewhere else from now on. He's not a very good coach. He was in charge of the OL before Summers was brought back. They were dreadful under his watch.

    It appears our mystery has been solved, Ted:

    Maybe his new nickname should be boomerang?
