    Earlier this month the Brockermeyer brothers (five-star offensive tackle Tommy and four-star center James) returned to the Capstone for Junior Day, the Forth Worth (Texas) All Saints Episcopal duo's second time back to campus.

    Nick Saban extended an offer to James during the visit, one that impressed both brothers on the stay.

    “I was just … it kind of felt like a dream,” James told BamaOnLine after getting the news. “It’s the greatest college football coach of all the time saying you have the opportunity to play for him, it’s pretty cool.”

    As for Tommy's impressions of the trip ...

    “I had a great time,” he told BOL. “I learned a lot of stuff that I didn’t know about. Like last time I got to see all the facilities and meet some of the coaches. This time I got to learn a lot more stuff about the people, and just got to meet a lot of the players and talk to the players about a lot of stuff. It was awesome.”

    The Brockermeyer brothers both affirmed that Alabama will receive official visits.

    On Thursday morning their father, Blake, told BOL that one official visit to Alabama is set for June 19-21. But that's not the only weekend the Brockemeyers are looking at making it to Tuscaloosa on an official visit. Their father says they're also looking at April 3-4 for another -- although this trip could be an unofficial visit and is to be determined. Why potentially two official visits? Since they are brothers, they can go on official visits as family. So since Tommy and James have separate recruitments they can go on separate officials and join each other.

    As BOL reported after Junior Day, Alabama is trending for both Tommy and James as other programs like Texas, Auburn, and LSU, continue to chip away at the recruitment.

    Depends on what it is. Not real high on him as a DC, but anything else is fine.

    If these are the only two choices, then yes, but if we are going to make a move at DC (and I doubt it very much), Charlie wouldn't be at the top of my list.

    I mean, Strong has two natties as a DC; Pete’s crowning achievement is that he hasn’t been fired yet.

    I’ll take Strong over Golding every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Golding is the town drunk compared to Strong.

    By the looks of it he might just be the town drunk already

    Understandable. I haven’t done the research but he had success at Louisville as HC and it’s not like he was fucking upwards like Chizik when Texas hired him. And Texas has been a train wreck since the natty loss in 09.

    I can’t think of any other better and realistic options.

    Idk I don’t know who’s really out there but Strong isn’t an old guy, recruits well and has been a strong defensive coordinator in his life. Plus, I think he’s ran his course on the HC circuit. Might be a good fit that could last a while

    Two concerns on Charlie: (1) Offense in college football has changed drastically since he was last a DC. Not always relevant, but his defenses as a HC were not particularly good; (2) Does he still have fire in his belly this late in his career?

    Now, if we're saying some position coach or analyst, I'm all for it.

    I'm with Z and Owsley. I'd rather him be a positional coach instead of a straight to coordinator spot

    Dont let our disdain for Golding rush us into bad judgement

    Keep Pete on staff, but disconnect his headset and let him call Madden plays into his mic while Strong calls shots

    Charlie certainly made his name as a DC at Florida, but his stock as a HC was mostly due to having Teddy Bridgewater while at Louisville. That stock has steadily gone down since leaving Louisville for Texas

    We only have two years with Bryce before he sits out his JR year after deep dicking college football. I don’t want him to have to smell Golding for even one moment of his career

    I think straight to DC is unlikely. Though I still think he would be better than Pete. I just like the idea of adding another adult in the room with real experience and he’s there to promote if we need to run Golding off.

    Could easily just be one of Saban’s typical offseason coach invites for brainstorming/workshopping/practice viewing, etc. Sometime something comes of it, sometimes it doesn’t.

    Guys like Strong, Chizik get flack for their failure as head coaches, but they were and still are excellent DC's. Not saying he's my number one choice, but replacing Pete with Strong is nutworthy.

    I think ideally, we bring him in as an analyst, see how it goes, and maybe move him in after a year or two. Sark path.

    I’m not sure. He’s an analyst at Florida right now. Gotta think this is for a highly paid spot unless his USF payout is contingent upon him not making money elsewhere.
