    1.) Henry

    2.) Najee
    3.) Trent
    4.) Ingram
    It gets tricky after that because of how we started to distribute workloads between 2 or 3 backs
    Yeldon, Lacy, Jacobs, Harris could go in any order

    I absolutely love Ingram and think he’s been undervalued the further we get from 2009. I have no idea how anyone could rank him over Henry.

    Sometimes I go back and watch his runs in the 2015 IB and am just dumbfounded. Motherfucker ran 46 times and didn’t even look that tired. Just 6,7,8 yards over and over and over.

    Then turns around and runs another 44 times against Florida.

    That might have been an 8-4/9-3 team without Henry.

    He gave Coker the time he needed to realize he was good and have confidence in that

    Still can’t believe we housed Kentucky by 20 in Rupp last night. Might be the greatest 2 week stretch in Alabama sports history.

    It’s really enjoyable.

    Freeze talks over people some but knows his offense because he’s seeing it on the screen. I really enjoyed Clawson a lot. With Sam could have been in studio. I feel like it’s hard to inject into a conversation on zoom when everyone else is in person.

    The film room is so much fun to watch every year. I thought Chizik was the best host they have had. It was awesome listening to his perspective as a defensive coach with Freeze and Clawson as the offensive guys. Makes you have a lot of respect for coaches and their ability to diagnose plays/concepts so quickly

    Have been told by multiple sources that Keilan Robinson is expected back to Tuscaloosa this weekend and will enroll. Robinson spent this year training with family on the West Coast and it sounds like he’s up to 200 pounds and has maintained his speed.

    I imagine the staff is pretty excited about his return. They understand him opting out for personal reasons and told him he's welcome to come back when he was ready. He’s also been in consistent contact with the Tide staff and they were expecting him back.

    Watching a replay because I'm a Bammer and it's what we do and an observation. Wade certainly got abused all night, but 7 for them was our little bitch pre-snap. He was definitely Sark's focus on many play designs.

    Who can we expect to give us help down low? Gary isn’t big enough to work against anyone with decent size. Reese and Rojas I guess is about all we’ve got there. Man I wish Tchikou was healthy.

    Gary isn't a scoring threat either which obviously hurts us the more minutes he plays.

    Considering his role on ST I think he's probably going to get his chance to prove he can contribute on D. I hope he's able to put it all together.

    But our numbers situation is going to be interesting.

    Devonta got all of them except single season receptions. Good for 9 still have something.

    So our two best receivers in school history are 6 and 9...NICE

    Really wanted to see how far we could take this undfeated SEC streak in basketball. Can we beat Arkansas without them? Bruner almost seems more important than Herb. Crazy to say considering Herb is the best defender in the SEC . But Bruner was a real presence in the front court.

    Arkansas is a pretty good team and in the middle of a tough 6 game stretch. I imagine we won’t get them by 16 like LSU did last night.

    Texas is coming hard at Banks. They are willing to increase his salary “significantly”. About to be a bidding war.

    He currently makes $725,000. He’s our 2nd highest paid non-coordinator assistant behind Charles Kelly at $800,000.

    We’re going to need Metchie and BRob (assuming he stays) to be Devonta-level dogs next year with what we’re losing offensively.

    Fortunately, I think both have it in them to do that.
