  1. Or Saban told him to go pound sand: https://www.foxnews.com/sports/alabamas-nick-saban-rejected-2-players-searching-1-3-million-combined-nil-money-report "Someone with one of the best corners in the nation (in high school) came to me and asked if we’d pay them $800,000 for the player to sign here. I told him he can find another place to play," Saban said, according to Baker High School coach Steve Normand. "I’m not paying a kid a bunch of NIL money before he earns it."
  2. O'Brien gone! https://www.al.com/alabamafootball/2023/01/alabama-offensive-coordinator-bill-obrien-hired-by-new-england-patriots.html Good riddance.
  3. All over the sports news, Bama DC has accepted the same position at Ole Miss. Got to admit, I am somewhat on the fence on this. Great recruiter, but it was quite apparent his defenses tended to under perform.
  4. The BCS pitted the consensus #1 vs #2. People bitched. The CFB now includes the consensus top 4. And people are bitching. It will expand to 12 teams. Watch what happens. People will B word after a couple years how the same teams are constantly in it. "The problem in college football has always been that only a very small number of schools actually have a chance." This has been a reality for decades, even during the AP/UPI polling days. It will not change just because "x" amount of teams can now make the playoffs. Adding even less deserving teams to the mix is not going to improve anything. What do you think will happen when those less deserving teams get blown out? Answer: Even more undeserving teams will need to be added! Expand the playoffs to 16! 24!
  5. Expanding the playoffs is not going to do jack s**t. The goal posts will be moved, and a new argument will emerge to expand the playoffs even more.
  6. Ooh, another awe inspiring, thought provoking, uber intelligent s**t post. Tell us, if the Bills went on a 15 year streak of domination, winning multiple SB to the point where everybody else in the NFL fan base hates them, are you going to sit around and lament about how the Bills are the poster child for everything that is wrong about NFL football?
  7. Who did not see this coming? https://www.al.com/auburnfootball/2022/10/bryan-harsin-fired-as-auburn-coach-after-21-games.html Some top prospects: https://www.al.com/auburnfootball/2022/10/top-auburn-coaching-candidates-to-replace-bryan-harsin.html
  8. In 2011, LSU averaged approx 40 points a game during the regular season. In 2011, LSU failed to score even 10 points in only 2 games. Guess which 2. 16 players on the Bama-LSU defenses got drafted. There was some serious talent on those 2 teams, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Would either team "stopped" OSU? Maybe not. Shut outs can be difficult to achieve. But I can confidently say, either team would have done a much better job than Iowa St did at slowing down the OSU offense. And I seriously doubt OSU would have been prepared for any offense LSU or Bama would have brought to the game.
  9. Here, let me help you with this; TEAM A LONE LOSS: On the road in doubt OT - to an unranked opponent. TEAM B LONE LOSS: At home in OT - To the #1 ranked team in the country.
  10. I want to welcome all the trolls who suddenly found this thread after Bama stumbles. How convenient. But if I do say, this smells a little like 2015. Starting QB Jake Coker was benched early in the year because of poor play. Bama lost to Ole Miss because they insisted on giving the ball back to OM 5 times. Pundits were claiming the Bama dynasty was over, fans of other teams were gloating at the Bama fortunes. How did that work out? Still 10 games to go.
  11. Mizzou went to the bottom of the barrel ever since Pinkel had to retire.
  12. Jesus Christ, what a sloppy ass game. Was a not a fan of Bill O last year, and it looks like that is not going to change this year.
  13. SEC Football is back, that means SEC Shorts is also back. Remember, CC needs to be on!
  14. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/34414293/college-football-playoff-board-discusses-possibility-potential-restructuring-how-college-football-governed-sources-say To be fair, the article does point out the conversation lasted about 5 minutes. So nothing is happening in the near future. But I do agree with this: "The conversation is significant, however, in that it's the first known discussion among a group that would seemingly have the power to put such a plan in action. And the CFP looms as the most likely destination for running major college football outside the NCAA." The NCAA has been a joke for years. And they seem clueless on how to deal with the transfer portal and the NIL. College football has "become" a pro sport, might as well go full in for the money, and try to regulate the portal and NIL.
