    Saw he leads the NFL in YPC since 2014. Not bad for another Bama bust.

    You’re running backs must be insane to have left him on the bench. Most run heavy team in the NFL vs the worst team in the NFL.

    He could legitimately lead the league in rushing this year

    Yep. It’s only South Carolina but I think we can come out and make a statement about how good this team can be.

    The only reason it isn't 30+ is because they dropped 70+ with almost 800 yards of offense yesterday. The backup QB looked significantly better than Bentley, and with our OL inconsistency (and maybe Dale/Lee/Harris/Battle in their first real road game) this could be closer than we want it to be for a couple quarters.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't think it is ever in doubt, but I can see why it's 22 and could possibly drop more towards 19~.

    Big man break away speed transitioned to the NFL well. He's hauling ass and you still feel like he's gonna get caught, but he's just in a long stride.

    We did a bit, but it looks like he's just not going to class so he's not playing. Probably has something to do with his grandmother being on his mind, and maybe he thought he was going to come down and never actually have to show up. I feel like he will get it straightened out, he's apparently got a good family behind him to tell him to stop being a dumbass as well.

    We seem to be avoiding this ahead of time with Smalls and now Evans at least.

    Imagine hiring Kliff Kingsbury as your head coach. Now, imagine drafting Kyler Murray number one overall a few months later.

    I can confirm Sark wasn't our problem in ATL, somewhat on topic :(

    Agreed. I left early once when I was a student because I was sick as a dog, but I don’t blame people for leaving a game that was almost 100 degrees against a team we were favored by 55. Plus, it wasn’t just students. The stadium was nearly empty at the start of the fourth quarter.

    Yeah this whole "we won't win championships unless you sit through the 4th quarter" is so patronizing and tired. We hear this screed every year. Schedule someone worth a shit if you want students to hang out in a non-competitive game.

    do you guys really think we are having a tough time scheduling opponents? I'm not saying line up Clemson and Ohio State but you would think we could find some more P5 schools to do home and homes with.

    Idk but I definitely think the fanbase is entitled & it's not just the students. It's not really our fault though. The home games have been so boring with such little doubt of the outcome the past few years. The last home game I can remember truly feeling anxious about was LSU back in 2015. Ole Miss that year too obviously, but it was before LSU.

    Initially I saw this and was like:
    tenor-63.gif

    Then I read where last year in the NFL, only two players eclipsed 22 mph (barely) and all time 23 has only been hit like once or twice in the NFL. Ruggs may break the combine 40 record, but even if he doesn't he's legitimately the fastest player I've ever seen in pads.
