Buff Tua is best Tua
He been working out his bones?
I think he's the best and it isn't particularly close
I think spikes been working out his bone to that pic
He was never out of coverage. When he gave up a play, it was almost always where he was covering the receiver like a glove but inexplicably forgot he had arms to defend with.
I never felt like I forgot Marlon or milliner existed at all. We were playing 10 on 10 without the best receiver on the other team all season.
Really his whole career.
1 bad game in 3 years (Lamb roasted him as a true freshman).
I don't have any hard stats to back it up but I think he was the most dominant cover corner we've had in the Saban era, maybe ever.
Surtain was really the saving grace of that 2018 class. He goes to LSU and last season looks a lot different.
Hopefully Stan is inside the building when they blow it up
Eric Bossi posted this on Bamaonline about Bediako.
“From the sounds of it, looking like a Mid March decision. As far as I can tell, Alabama is still the team to beat but others are working hard. Nothing major revealed here, just wanted to pass along.”
Someone commented and said “I thought we were out of it” and he said he never heard that and he will check in but he’d be shocked if he had bad info. That it was Bama at the head and others trying to make a charge late.
In a stunning turn of events, the guys on rivals that cover our bball recruiting were wrong
it would be just as stunning for the guys on bol to be right
Andrew Slater always had the best information. No idea what he's going now.
Is he the stockrisers guy?
You have to pay for that info now.
I have no idea. He used to be on 247.
Yeah, I got him mixed up with this guy https://twitter.com/jakeweingarten
RT: The most insane thing about Najee and Smitty coming back is that Junior year, Najee had 1500 total yards and 20 TDs and Smitty had 1250 yards and 14 TDs. Those numbers at any other program make them sure fire first rounders and honestly should have, especially given the competition they faced from not only our conference but also from other stars on our team that they competed for touches with.
True or false: We just witnessed the most prolific offense we will ever see from Alabama football. I.e. for as long as you live , you will never see another Alabama offense outpace the 2020 offense.
Kinda forgot about Menzie
Menzie is on one end of the transfer DB spectrum, Savion Smith is on the other.
I forgot about the houndstooth ribbon
Here’s to hoping Ronald Williams and Kyree Jackson are more Menzie than Saivion!
Belue is in the middle of the spectrum between Saivion and Menzie
forgot about him. His speed was much heralded.
This must be so fun for Rhea and Ballou to walk in and have the best football athletes in the world to work with.
must be so fun for the athletes being able to work with people who arent still living in 2008
Bama printer go BRRRRRRRR
Probably Ole Miss or Florida
Hopefully Georgia or Vandy
would love another UGA game.
What’s amazing is that last year’s offense had a higher YPP. Still some elements of what-if in regards to what that group would have been if Tua is 100% all year.
In terms of efficiency though, I think this year tops even that group. Never felt more certain that we would score than this year.
Mac was just a better college QB than Tua. Offensive line was better this year too.
Thinking about all the elite pass rushers we’ve had over the last 14 years and Bill Anderson might not be the best (yet), but he’s the first to make an immediate impact. I can’t even begin to imagine what his next two seasons are gonna be like with full springs
change nothing! Thanks for posting my 2nd favorite Bama hooper too!
We will get yardage/TDs out of Bryce Young in 2021 similar to that of _________ in past seasons.
Also which style of play will Bryce Young be most similar too compared to past Saban QBs. I'm going to go with Tua. Although I don't think he'll be as reckless as Tua. The comparison is they both have escapability/mobility to evade pressure and extend plays. Frame wise, the best comparison is probably Blake Sims. But Blake Sims was way faster than Bryce. Arm talent wise, I have no clue.
I only watched one of Bryce's high school games but he reminded me of Tua in that he was always looking for the big play deep if he held on to the ball more than a couple seconds. Not sure that's a fair comparison since it was 2 years ago now and he isn't playing with high school athletes anymore.
The two biggest “issues” I saw with Bryce last year were size and speed of the game.
Time and experience should solve both, though there will be some element of luck involved in regards to his height; if he doesn’t hit a late Scottie Pippen growth spurt, he’ll never be six feet tall.
Probably 1.5 Hurts
Yeah, you could tell that the speed of the game was an issue on those 22 attempts he had
This play tells me all I need to know. He eluded the free rusher, moves outside the pocket and gives himself the chance to run or throw. But it’s third and goal and he recognizes #5 will probably keep him out of the end zone so he throws a strike to Smitty who has his man beat and the other guy close by is trailing Billingsley and wouldn’t have enough time to reverse momentum and make a pick.
I would say Hurts is probably the floor for Bryce this year. I think he will show flashes like the play Clown just posted that just blows everybody away. But then we will see some mistakes as well. Even at his best (at Bama), Jalen was a lot more risk averse than what we need out of Bryce. By the end of the year I think we will see a Tua esque player. The key is not having any slip ups early in the year when the offensive line is figuring out their shit as well as Bryce.
also we are just going to be so fucking talented on both sides, it's hard to imagine anyone in the SEC touching us. So many of our rivals are a mess.
