Alright fam...lots of excitement the last two days and I am sure there will be more but I will probably not be checking in until Thursday maybe Friday. Burying my brother-in-law tomorrow...the age of 29 is too young but he is in a better place now. Y'all hold the fort down and say a little prayer. Cherish the ones closest to you as they nor you are guaranteed tomorrow.
So this system is going to favor Carter and Bostick... Carter seems like a defacto starter a year or two down the road and Bostick is very intriguing. What have you heard from Bostick on the practice field? And with this new system, could we begin to use linebackers other than Wilson and Herrera for third downs?
I'm liking the Pruitt hire more than even Kirby now. Pruitt did it on his own, with Kirby there is still a shadow of a doubt that it's Saban and not Kirby who runs that defense. I also like this hire cause he's a big time recruiter and this may help open up Bama for us. Finally, I really like this hire because it means we did something different from last year.
It was so frustrating to watch our players not being lined up on time before the snap. Or our safeties not being even remotely in position. And most frustrating of all, the lack of improvement in anything from beginning of year to the end of year.
@ItsJustaFleshWound The real question is how do Herrera, Wilson and Floyd fit in at all? Does Floyd remain at OLB? He made a lot of mental errors and took a lot of bad angles on tackles and for the upcoming team that will rely on speed and athleticism you can't have missed tackles or bad angles like Floyd did last year. The other thing is who will be our DT next year? Will Jon Taylor finally get a chance? Will Chris Mayes develop from last year as at times he had moments of brilliance? Will Mike Thornton play some DE? Who will play opposite of Drew?
Someone on the radio said that CTG's recruiting style was similar to Petrino's as Petrino didn't win too many living rooms. Petrino may have not won many living rooms, but he won far too many bedrooms that were not his own. He was lucky he wrecked that motorcycle before he had to beg someone's husband to give him at least three steps.
@RowdyATL18 I don't know how much CTG was involved in his players lives but at the college level it's important for the coach to not only make the player the best he can be on the field but off it as well. Obviously you can't keep an eye on all these guys every second but hearing recruits say that CTG leaving doesn't affect them and that they may have talked to him once on an OV tells me a lot in itself.
@bigredballer@ItsJustaFleshWound Radi sucks. Hey BRB, what up man? So what's the deal with our remaining targets in particular Green and MIller? Why is there all the sudden talk of Webster now? IS he officially in play now? DO we have room? How many more can we legitimately sign? I prefer to sign a few extra as we all know there will be attrition prior to fall semester of at lease 5-6 per recent years
