    They did their job by holding them to fewer points than our offense scored, which is literally all we could ask from them and simple Pete.

    Gonna be lots of word doc-ing when Mac leads us to a championship.

    If we play enough games.
    We won't.

    Going to be an awful lot of champs looking like chumps at that point, but we will revisit once we win the natty.

    Just because he lost the Iron Bowl for us last year doesn’t mean he can’t win a title for us this year. The biggest things Mac needed to do this offseason was quicken his release and work on hitting the receiver in stride on deep balls. If he did those things and doesn’t throw two pick-sixes in a huge game, I like our chances.

    Yeah - most years it just doesn’t matter at RB because were so stacked but the 2019 debacle against Clemson comes to mind where I rewatched and just couldn’t understand why Damien was getting carries over Najee

    He got stuffed a couple times in short yardage / goal line work in huge moments and Najee was shredding them. Not that it would have made a difference in the outcome but might have made it closer

    Pretty sure Jacobs was averaging 10 ypc in the SECCG against UGA and got out carried by Damien.

    Guy was an all timer banner, program guy, and solid back but he was the third best on that team. I’m nitpicking but Sabes will start the senior more often than not IMO

    Tua would be alive today if he had any sort of internal clock

    What makes Tua special is his ability to dip, duck, dodge and dive an entire defense before chucking up a TD and the whole time you’re worried if he gets pushed firmly to the ground whether he’ll ever be able to walk again. You can’t coach that

    I just think rotational positions like defensive line and running back are drastically different than quarterback. And it’s easy to nitpick nose tackle substitutions when you have the benefit of hindsight. And even irt to jalen/Tua, he defied your theory the year prior by giving Jalen the job in the first place.

    I’m a firm believer that Saban plays the right guys. We always have 2-3 true freshman who ball out in camp and play a lot over some random veterans. And I think that’s atypical in programs that have our kind of depth.

    Harper is stupid but I will post this. If we were to land Bediako and Cardet would be massive. Would obviously love to land Davidson, we need a PG and he is explosive.

    “I’m leaning towards AU for Davison at this time.

    Still very confident in Bediako choosing Alabama.

    Darius Johnson has Bama in his final 3 and is deciding October 1. He is a backup plan for JD and anticipate him signing with Alabama if JD chooses Auburn or the G League.

    Really confident Wesley Cardet chooses Alabama right now as well”

    What if Tua was going to return and Saban (who had advanced warning of coronavirus) encouraged him to go to the NFL and give the Dolphins covid as one last twist of the knife?

    Now you’re probably saying “but Tua doesn’t have coronavirus.” But he’s also already had every physical ailment known to man so...

    Jeez. I had forgotten all about that.

    Really was a total own goal. Set the bar waaaaaay too high, when if we had just gotten Moses, Leatherwood, Smitty, and Najee back, everybody would have been ecstatic before that.

    Not to start some huge debate but for all the talk of Rhea and Ballou revolutionizing the teams speed and agility, no one is mentioning that Shane Lee is probably running a sub-4.4 now or how he’s gonna lead the team in sacks

    I'll never forget your Jimmy Johns theory. Basically that his arrest helped fuel the opioid epidemic in Tuscaloosa because none of the frat guys could get blow anymore. Some stuck to alcohol and weed, while the others turned to the pills.

    I would think there are a couple of key distinctions.

    1. One game was against an undefeated national champion. The other was against a 4 loss team.

    2. The type of turnovers matter. While Tua's first turnover cost us points, it did not lead to an LSU score directly. In fact, it put the defense in a really good spot with LSU pinned deep inside their own 10 on the first drive. Both of Mac's turnovers directly lead to 14 points.
