The OSU in Kirk came out for a minute, lost his compusure in the excitement
In case it wasn’t official before.
Kirk is great at calling any non OSU/Clemson game. He struggles some in those which I’d say is fairly normal.
GMac is probably the alum who least shows favoritism however he sometimes pushes so far the other way while doing games it’s stupid and makes no sense a la doing it for the sake of it.
Case in point.
Haven't seen many Cole Pubelick posts in here in a while
Tommy Callahan care to weigh in on Greg?
Cubelic is like 5x more likable than McElroy. I may even be undershooting there a bit.
Agree completely. I love his short vid/gifs of line play after Saturday in the season.
Gives tons of praise to our OL guys, don’t think he’s particularly biased towards anybody.
I don’t PT super close attention to Coke so I definitely could have missed something but he seems extremely unbiased
Cole can get a little too ranty for my tastes about what compensation athletes “deserve”, the transfer portal, “back in my day”, etc.
But in general, I always find his actual football takes to be pretty on-point and level headed.
I like Cole a lot and think he's a great football talent. He gets pretty tough to listen to when going off topic. I think that's what separated the round table guys.
Coles wife came to Tuscaloosa a lot to slob on some knobs.
Just learning some gap assignments
all the great ones did
My Georgia buddy messaged me with Saban’s quote about how it was such an obvious shot at Cochran and that we definitely miss him etc.
Hit em with that okkkk
what a bunch of dumb fucks!
Not sure if Harsin is a Scientologist or not, but I came across this on Twitter and wearing this shirt he clearly doesn’t think Black lives matter. So that should endear him to the fan base.
That's got to be shopped. I refuse to believe this hire is as good as it is (for everyone that doesn't support Auburn).
Oh no, it’s real.
SEC fixing to add Oklahoma and Texas. Wow
Horrible. Absolutely horrible.
I kind of like the idea of it.
I don't like the idea of anything that involves Texas.
More faux cowboys.
more quality teams in the conference the better. maybe this will have us actually add that 9th game thus taking one step further in eliminating 1AA cupcake games entirely.
I'd rather play UT-Chattanooga every year than share a conference with even more Texans.
I wish we'd add Clemson so that they didn't get to play a cupcake schedule every year.
Short term it sounds fun because you get OU or Texas on the schedule, which is good for the fans.
Long term for us it is mostly detrimental. Letting Texas - the wealthiest program in the country, in the middle of Austin where they're going to very soon start reaping the benefits of the NIL - ALSO have SEC branding is just asking for a headache down the road. It wouldn't change much the first 5, maybe even 10 years, but then having all of that to sell moving forward would be hard to compete with in a post Saban world.
I’m a bit torn on the idea. Would it be exciting and make the season more fun, absolutely. But at the same time, it would make the conference more difficult and why in the world would I want that. It’s already hard enough to win in this league.
I think TeeDee is spot on
He is, but it won't matter.
Only one thing matters anymore in college athletics and that is money, and this would be a money making bonanza.
to be devil’s advocate , under Saban , we’ve had a pretty easy go of it. Many of the traditional powers have been down. It’s not exactly a gauntlet every year.
that’s because of Saban
That's directly related to the program Saban built, though. Florida, Auburn, LSU, Georgia. Every single one of them have reared their head into the spotlight for at least a split second only to be shoved back down by our program again. Things look MUCH differently if Saban had left or retired at some point years ago.
Was talking about this with the other coaches earlier today, but does anybody else think this NIL stuff is going lead to a big reduction in players declaring early?
Think that unless you’re a first round lock, it’s better to be that big fish in a small pond for another year and earn the endorsement money.
Also, would gladly trade OU and Texas for A&M and Mizzou. Would be a huge boon for the conference as a whole.
If we do add UT/OU we have to do away with conferences immediately. Gotta go the pod route or just an open schedule format
Yes, we’ve had it really good with Saban and we would still have it good as long as he is here, no matter who gets added. But, it still becomes more difficult, however you want to measure that, if Texas/OU get added. I’m not in favor of making things more difficult for my team, when there isn’t really a reason to. The SEC doesn’t need Texas or OU.
If this happens, I’d like the move to the SEC East. Playing UF, UGA, AU, UT every year would be great. I doubt divisions would last if we added though
So a very relevant example here would actually be Bryce. I could see him being an absolute star at the collegiate level, but his size being a deterrence for teams to take him say, top 5-10 overall. In a case like that, staying an extra year or two for the big NIL deals could be a realistic option just to milk a guaranteed thing.
His size won't matter. Look at Kyler Murray and Tua.
Tua is a solid 2 inches taller and Kyler is an elite athlete. It may not, but it could be.
I'd argue Bryce was every bit as dynamic as Kyler as a senior in High School. Is Tua really 2 inches taller?
Keep mixing things up Uncle Jun. Keeps the board lively.
