    Normally I'd be pissed about a 39 to 16 FT discrepancy in a game we lost by 4, but when you shoot 58 threes you aren't going to shoot FTs.

    I said it earlier. We match up with Auburn. Honestly if Herb is healthy we beat them again. We just didn’t have his slashing to the rim and finishing. Our guards got their shots blocked where he would’ve gotten fouled or finished.

    If we had any sort post presence we’d be really good. Galin is terrible and has some of the worst hands I’ve ever seen. You could send him to Wuhan and he couldn’t catch the coronavirus.

    I’ll give Herb all the credit in the world. Dude played his ass off with one hand and honestly changed the game for us. His defense was just massive because we had no one who could force a stop. I believe the moment he came in we got like 3-4 straight stops.

    FT shooting is still frustrating but that’s been every year of my life so I don’t know what to do there.

    Please, please god make Galin leave after the year. We can find literally any big guy and I’d imagine he’d be an improvement. We had NO ONE who could match up with Wiley. And that’s the same thing that happened with Blackshear. Have to improve there.

    Galin's just worthless. I mean, he's 46% FT's so he can't even hit them.

    Galin, Davis and Reese combined for 11 points of our 91 total points and 7 rebounds of our final total of 44 rebounds.

    I know it’s been said a bunch. Even I’ve said it a bunch tonight but fuckkkkkk that’s awful. Just awful from your big guys. This team with just an average big guy for rebounding specifically we’d probably have 3-4 more wins.

    We were +13 with Herb on the floor for 7 minutes.

    If he could have given us 10 we’d have won easily.

    This is going to be such an interesting QB Battle. I know the Champs thread has pretty much given the job to Bryce. Deservedly so, I think he will be special. But I still feel like day 1 it's Mac's job to lose. And it's hard to imagine him playing poorly surrounded by the guys we have coming back.

    Saban has always handled QBs extremely well (the exception being Bateman against Ole Miss). If it’s Mac, it’s because Saban believes Mac can lead us to a title. If it’s Bryce, then it’s because he’s that special.

    like others have said in here. QB is pretty low on my list of concerns going into the season. Much more interested in the pass rush and secondary.

    The Champs thread, while acknowledging the soon to be greatness of Bryce, mostly were realist and said that Bryce was on the outside looking in after the way Jones performed down the stretch.

    The problem, as usual, is Pete. If we still had an elite defense we wouldn’t have to worry about having a gunslinger QB.

    There were plenty of people completely trashing Mac even after the Iron Bowl. I think it took that bowl performance to convince a lot of people.

    The 2020 Alabama Golden Flake A-Day Game will be played on April 18 and is scheduled for a 1 p.m. (CT) kick inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.

    Ongoing construction at Bryant-Denny Stadium will limit the stadium’s capacity for the 2020 A-Day Game to approximately 30,000-35,000. Seating will be available on the east and south sides in the lower and upper bowls. There will be limited concessions available at select stands and four water stations set up throughout the concourses.

    Once capacity at Bryant-Denny Stadium is reached, Sewell-Thomas Stadium will be opened and fans can watch the game live on the video board while also being able to access restrooms and concessions.

    they both should, but i'd bet they both probably go. i also don't see either of them being anything more than an end of the bench guy in the NBA right now.

    My sources in the football team (name rhymes with Brick Satan) was telling me that Mckorkle Jones is pretty damn washed.

    They are both G Leaguers or Europe if they leave after this year. I'm hoping Mac convinces them to stay and build off of what they have started. But sometimes you just need the money even if it ain't NBA Money.

    People that were acting like he was awful were just being dumb. People that are now acting like he's really good are also wrong. First, the sample size is a little small to be making any sweeping assessments. But from what we have seen, the guy is not a noodle arm game manager. He can threaten a defense down the field. But his ceiling is definitely much lower than some of the elite college QBs we've seen in recent years. Maybe he'll one day be similar to a Jake Coker. I think he's more dangerous than a Greg McElroy type QB. It's tough to judge him based on his Iron Bowl performance, but we also need to see him not make awful decisions. From what I can tell, he's good enough for us to win a natty if we have a very good defense.

    Mac will almost certainly be an all-SEC quality QB if he starts and plays all year. :twocents:

    If Bryce plays over him, I expect pretty awesome stuff.

    seems crazy to say “almost certainly all-SEC quality QB” . We saw him do well but throw 2 game costing INTs against Auburn and play a good game against Michigan. I just don’t think you can extrapolate All SEC from that.

    He had the highest passer rating in the SEC for any returning QB with four or more starts.

    You can judge a guy by two plays or 200. I prefer to go with the latter.

    I think it’s fair to say I would expect an All-SEC season from any competent QB given what we have coming back on OL, WR, and RB.

    I think Mac acquitted himself well and if he wins the job I would expect him to be one of the top 3 QB’s in the league.

    Whose going to be above him? Bo Nix? Kellen Mond?
