    Idk if this is related to the 2022 kid or the Smith decommitment or what.

    Fucking Mac doesn’t have any conviction. Also, Evan Neal has a Jon Allen voice and Jarez Parks seems like a cool dude. Smitty seems scared of the camera.

    Mac looks like he got out of bed five seconds before they started recording.

    Not only is that video the right message to send imo, it’s also going to drive away a ton of the types of people who sit down during games (if we ever have them again)

    This is a great video. Glad we put it out and it’s great Leatherwood wrote it

    2 main takeaways:
    -this I surely to piss off some fans. Good. Fuck em
    -all Mac no Bryce. Mac as the starter and captain confirmed

    I know your anti Mac thing is a bit, but I thought they all spoke well. I am very impressed with Leatherwood for writing that. Also I know this goes without saying but I'm really proud of Coach Saban's leadership. He is proof that you don't have to be a bible toting grifter(Dabo) or a morally corrupt asshole (Meyer) to be an elite football coach.

    I think Bryce is going to be one of the next great ones at Bama, and I’m not hating on the kid by any means, but barring injury it won’t be this year. Mac/Bryce is nothing like Jalen/Tua.

    I've got to see Mac consistently complete relatively short passes with decent coverage. He has not been accurate on those in the games he's started.

    They are both going to play a lot for the first half of the season. I don't think we will know who the starter is until mid October. And it could be either guy.

    We can win with either. The bigger questions lie in the defense.

    Apparently we will look more balanced this year? Najee will be one of the main focuses of the offense, but they think Mac will do enough to get it into the hands of our playmakers in Smith, and Waddle.

    This team is loaded and experienced and next year it’s not. The move is to start Bryce, ease him into the offense with a run game early then let him play. Mac Jones is not it and bama will not compete in the postseason with him

    I think the defense will be much improved unless we get hit by injury again.

    If Mac is starter this year, how easy is it to remove him next year? Does he just ride off into the sunset? I can't see him being drafted.

    Of course it will be better. Bringing back Moses alone ensures that. But Golding certainly doesn't have the benefit of the doubt, and I think we are all kind of holding our breath hoping he puts it together with a healthy roster.

    I ask because I couldn't come up with someone who was just clearly worse.

    Is he clearly better than Kines, Torbush, or Ellis Johnson? I can't say that he is.

    We have question marks at literally every defensive position but MLB. It is not guaranteed that we’ll take a big jump.

    My personal opinion is that we will much better but we’ll be thin in the front seven again. Another injury to Dale and one of Young, Barmore, Eboigbe and were back to last year.

    2021 is when we return to have real experienced depth with the 2019 and 2020 classes making up the core of the team.

    2018 was just so bad

    Kines fielded an elite defense in 05 that willed us to 10 wins by itself. automatically removes him from the running

    If this is how it plays out, Bryce is more than likely transferring. No way Saban lets that happen.

    I don’t think that’s ever factored into Sabans mind set, even Tua admitted that he planned on transferring if it wasn’t for the national championship game.

    Not sure how anyone could look at how Georgia handled Fields and think that's a good idea. Saban isn't dumb and may in fact have a plan.

    Bryce, fielding a fake punt on 4th and long, disapparates from the field and emerges 8 months later as QB for USC. Mac Jones is euphoric. Ohio State wins 56-7 after 5 pick sixes.
