    i just had a flashback to DJ Dale making the most uncharacteristic beast-like tackle against UGA where he was getting blocked and used one arm to just shove the RB down. it was unreal.

    If I had been talented and committed enough to play football at Alabama, I’d definitely announce online my return for my senior year even if it was a given.

    Hopefully we hear from Harris today. He clearly has a tough decision to make

    Didn’t he have a sack too, or am I thinking of this tackle?

    First off, I didn’t disparage his NFL prospects so don’t lump me in with these other guys. Second, I like DJ as a guy and a leader but I would like to see a lot more production out of nose tackle. He’s a good run stopper but he doesn’t have that extra gear to which we’ve become accustomed from the position.

    What happened to DJ? He was the best of the defensive line prospects as a true freshman, and then was just unbelievably mediocre the last two years. Did the injury affect him that much or were the initial results in 2018 just a flash?

    fuck, we really could use Slade next year with Metchie and Jameson both leaving. Not sure who is going to step up and be the leader.

    If Battle and Harris come back. :fap:

    I swear if Pete has those guys waiting until game 10 to be playing well, I'll lose my mind.

    How so? Dale would have extremely limited nfl prospects at this point. Likely rounds 6-7 or UDFA.

    I actually like him as a player and I’m glad to have him back. I just don’t think he’s shown nfl quality play (most guys don’t)

    Need to get downs out of the portal and we’ll be in okay shape. Going to need brooks/hall to take the next step and get something out of the incoming guys

    Damn, Battle is a little surprising. Having both our safeties back will be nice. Hell, potentially our whole secondary besides Jobe.

    Brooks is going to be good. Hall can be good if he can get his head on straight. Earl/Leary/etc. somebody has to step up there.

    We gotta go get somebody for Bryce. I’d be a little pissed if I was him. Don’t want to waste his Jr year with a shitty OL and lackluster receivers.

    The Revenge Tour was popularized by Michigan in 2018. They ended up losing by a trillion in their last game.

    I wasn't talking about Ohio State.

    My formulas had a “-2” in there for COVID seniors screwing up the number. I’ve updated now and we are at 91 after Metchie. Still a ways to go.

    Going to have to be some DBs leaving. We can’t carry 17. And a DL. We are at 16 there.
