    $8mm lol. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he left, though. Jr is graduating and he kinda has seemed to be looking for a way out since the time he got here.

    The only concern with Hoiberg was him coming out and saying that he hated recruiting when he got the Bulls job.

    Sad news, guys. Leonard, crestfallen following my comment, just jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge. His last words were “I was wrong about Adam Gase.” RIP

    The thunder are having a great year so far. Donovan is exceeding expectations at this point even with the Westbrook missing multiple games. Barring an absolute collapse I doubt he's out after this year

    This is comforting considering what we are losing in the front 7. He and Moses should be primed for massive seasons.

    Would be nice if Bulletproof and Anfernee return as well. I’m not holding my breath on Deionte, although I do wonder what we do with Diggs with the emergence of Surtain and Shyheim. He has played safety in the past.

    I think saivion to safety and surtain/Diggs at corner. Shyheim has been a stud at nickel no reason to move him now
     
  20. Clown Baby

    Clown Baby I make more aioli in a week than you do in a year

    Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking. Either Diggs or Smith have to make a move because I think Shyheim has Star locked down. Although a quick google has Shyheim as McKinney’s backup at safety.

    Let’s not forget that Jalen had surgery (albeit minor) six weeks ago. The kid is a human dynamo.

    Diggs seems to have more upside af corner than saivion. Just think he lacks speed to be truly elite, but he could make an excellent free safety with good coverage skills and decent size
     
  23. Clown Baby

    Clown Baby I make more aioli in a week than you do in a year

    Yeah, I’m pretty excited about our DB depth next year. Getting Daniel Wright back will be big and hopefully Jobe and McDonald can make some strides. I’m also not on board at all with this bullshit wrt to Christian Williams flipping to LSU. That kid is going to be great.

    DE: Raekwon
    DT: Mathis
    DE: Ray

    Jack: Jennings
    MLB: Mack
    WLB: Moses
    Sam: Lewis

    CB: Diggs

    CB: Shyheim
    S: McKinney

    We’re think Williams is most likely a star, and would prefer to add a more well rounded DB. I think he’s gone if we flip Carter/doesn’t sign on ESD.

    Completely done with Avery. I was working late last night and was listening to the 1st half on my way home. Everything sounded good.

    Get home, eat a bit and then watched the last 10 minutes. It was pathetic. I think every basket they scored in the last 10 minutes was either an uncontested layup or a dunk. Yet we did nothing different.

    The idea that Herb Jones is even a D-League player is absolutely hilarious. He is terrible. And typical Dazon. He shoots over 80% from the FT line all year, and plays a good game, and then misses two clutch FTs at the end.

    Webb nuggets from Watts. Reading between those lines, he's going to Georgia.

    According to two sources close to the Clemson program Webb cancelled his in-home visit with Dabo Swinney, which would eliminate Clemson. Auburn sources say Malzahn is supposed to go in-home this week, but not sure when. We are keeping an ear to the ground to see if or when that takes place.

    This is likely what we thought all along -- Alabama-Georgia battle. As I've maintained for a while now, I think there is too much confusion to make a call. Georgia has been a legitimate threat since this summer and Alabama has been there since Day 1. As of this morning sources close to the UGA program feel "good" about their chances and where they stand. On the Alabama end, sources feel that the home team is very much in it. But one thing for certain is nobody seems to know for sure.

    Webb is set to announce on Monday, so there could be tidbits that leak out here and there. We will pass them along as we get them.

    I don't follow recruiting much these days. I just assumed when I saw 5* center from Oxford that he'd go to UA or AU. Has Kirby just done a great job with the kid or does he have a link to UGA?

    It's definitely wild. His 6.5 ypc is 3rd all time for Bama RBs. That said, he's looked like the 3rd best back on the team this year, imo.
    Just a reminder that JK Scott never won the Ray Guy Award.
    Yep. This is also the first season of 10 on-field coaches instead of 9.
    Diggs and Surtain probably hold the edge in run D better too. Smith was a liability at times and teams would run right at him. Every long Citadel TD run came on a triple option pitch to his side where he was out of position.

    Saivion’s pursuit angles and understanding of run fits would have to get significantly better to play safety.

    With bowl practices, offseason work, and spring ball, he’ll have opportunities to improve.

    That does worry me though.

    I think savion could be a really good safety for us. Might be the best move for him he seemed to be attacked in the secondary when the other teams felt they needed a big play. I could see him being a ball hawk at safety though.

    Alabama wide receiver commit John Metchie will be the first 2019 commitment to arrive on campus as he tells BamaOnLine he will enroll at the Capstone by Dec. 15.

    "I have my diploma already," Metchie told BOL after stating he would be in Tuscaloosa next week.

    The Hightstown (N.J.) product has been committed to the Crimson Tide since July after choosing Bama over Penn State.

    The 4-star prospect could be the only wide receiver Alabama takes in 2019 barring any changes.

    2COMMENTS
    At 6-foot, 195 pounds, Metchie is rated the No. 41 wide receiver and the No. 289 overall player in the country, per the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings.

    We saw a couple members of the 2018 class join the Tide last December in Saivion Smith and Jarez Parks (grayshirt).

    I’ll take all 3 guys we took over Collins. We got the top WR, and offensive player on our board, last year, so losing Ross isn’t too bad, and Pickens will be re-recruited in 2 years.

    I just want one of those 6'6 wrs at some point. Sure, shavers is big but he hasnt seemed great in limited snaps. Maybe thats due to playcalling when he finally gets out there.
