nothing screams "mack wilson highlight" more than allowing a first down and not wrapping up
With the talk of potentially holding Auburn to under 2 TDs, if that happens, does the consensus of WSP start to shift? Even teams with what would be regarded as great defenses seem to be getting lit up this year by competent offenses. Fundamentals seemed to have marginally improved since the start of the season. Just curious how people feel about it after the last few weeks with our defense improving on paper.
we definitely are not blowing as many assignments. if moses didnt suck so bad, id feel good about the direction of the d. safeties are definitely improving.
If the defense plays well against Auburn that's great, but idk that we will know how "real" the improvement is until we face UF
Who out there is playing “great” defense this year? Anybody?
20 ppg scoring defense is the new 10 ppg.
Liberals killed defense. I don't have to explain this statement, you all know what I mean.
We are definitely harder on our guys because of what we were spoiled with early in Sabans time here but the game has changed. Last year definitely wasn’t acceptable but I see flashes this year. Moses looking rusty doesn’t help though. If he’s not in position it makes the whole defense look bad.
I love the optimism, but we aren’t holding Auburn below 21.
The good news is Moses isn't one of the ones coming back. Doesn't affect our future defense and its progression.
Add that to things I never thought I'd say in my life.
Are we sure he isn’t coming back because I don’t see how he gets drafted before the 5th round after this season.
yeah he's coming back
Along these same lines, I had my dad tell me yesterday that "snowflakes killed the Pac 12"
Yall have lost your damn minds. We haven't played anyone lately and our defense still sucks. When Kentucky with half their team out was actually shifting around pre snap they were giving us hell. Even the announcers couldn't understand why they got away from it. We'll go right back to looking like shit when we play a good offense again. Our safties are not better. Wright is still an idiot. Our linebackers still suck. Geez I can't believe yall are falling into the trap of thinking because we beat up on some of the worst offenses in the country we are all of a sudden better on defense. We may have gotten a tad bit better but nothing that makes a difference against a real offense. WSP absolutely still needs to get fired. That fucker is a bum. Any other answer is treason and asinine.
Hell yes gump!
that’s what I’m talking about. Demand more baby!!!
Leonard, you are the king of not demanding enough. Always content with us being mediocre in basketball, never thinking we could rise above our perennial under achieving, poopooing on our ability to recruit nationally. I don't want to hear that pussy shit!
I think more than anything improvement on defense stems from playing the best players. When Moore and Branch entered the fold, it has helped tremendously. As time passes, hopefully Moses feels less required to make sure everyone else is aligned and actually get himself aligned.
If the light clicks for Battle - and hopefully it did this week - our D will be so much better down the stretch.
yes, having at least one competent player on the back end is much better than having 2 clueless guys that can't tackle
At this point, Pete will be back next year.
lol I was being serious
In that case I take back everything I said.
From Alabama Athletics:
The 2020-21 men's basketball season opener between Alabama and Jacksonville State will now be televised on SEC Network and has been moved to a 7 p.m. tipoff to accommodate television.
The contest between the two in-state foes, which was originally slated for a 6:30 p.m. CT start on SEC Network+, will be the season opener for both teams.
can't wait to rage about basketball
If you mean get a raging hard on then yes
crazy that basketball season starts in 2 days. Ready for us to wreck some shit
Game got moved to SECN too
Maybe that means Wimp won’t be doing the announcing. Hopefully.
I read elsewhere that Trevor Releford will be doing the game instead of Wimp.
Wait...really? That should be interesting.
Releford and Roger Hoover is what I read on TI earlier.
Fresno (Calif.) Central wide out Xavier Worthy has been a solid commitment to Michigan since July but plans on visiting Alabama this weekend.
Alabama was probably the runner-up for Worthy or at worst in his final three at the time he committed. He never visited Alabama or actually anywhere, before he committed to the Wolverines.
He has since visited Michigan and will now check out the Tide this weekend when they host Auburn.
"I'm looking forward to it," Worthy said. "My mom will be coming out with me and I'll be spending the whole weekend out there. The plan is to fly out on Friday, I'll be there for the game Saturday and then head back home Sunday.
"Alabama never backed off since I committed to Michigan. Coach Wiggins (WR coach) and coach Sark (Sarkisian, OC) are my primary recruiters and they have been on me hard this whole time so I just wanted to go out there and check it out and we'll see what happens."
Worthy gave a 'no comment' when asked how strong his commitment to Michigan was so it's safe to assume Wolverine fans will be sweating out this visit or until Worthy comes out and solidifies his pledge to Michigan.
Worthy said he still plans to sign in December and is on track to graduate early. He was selected for the All-American Bowl and is currently rated the No. 73 player nationally in the 247Sports Composite.
Worthy is among the fastest football players in the country. He’s not just fast, he has elite level speed, the kind where he should be the fastest player on the field in almost every game he plays in.
He was favored to win the state 100m title last year as a junior after clocking a 10.5-100m as a sophomore. When it comes to his speed, he’s not just a straight line guy like a lot of track guys we see playing football. He has wiggle, can change direction and is elusive in the open field.
He has that extra gear to run away from a defense but he’s extremely good after the catch and can routinely make 2-3 guys miss on every play. He also catches the ball very comfortably, doesn’t fight it but shows soft hands and will be more then just a deep threat.
You can move him around all over the field and he should also be an impact player on special teams returning punts and kicks. He’s a true home run hitter, the kind of player who’s a threat to score every time he touches the football from anywhere on the field.
He’s also a highly competitive player as well and plays with a little chip on his shoulder. Players from the Fresno area are always tough and Worthy is a guy who definitely has a dog mentality to him.

It's obviously a concern anytime a kid visits another campus, especially Bama's, but here's what he told me...
"I’m just having fun. This is all funny to me. I been having a good laugh all morning seeing people freak out."
Other things that suggest he'll stick...
STRONG relationship with Gattis
So, is all this cause for concern? Sure. Cause for panic? Not yet IMO.
Must have been more impressed by Bryce than Cade
This guy has obviously never seen Reuben Foster's Auburn tattoo
As a recruit, how in the world could you look at how bad Michigan's offenses have been , how archaic their offense is , and how much shit Harbaugh is getting, and determine you'd rather play there than at any of the elite , well coached, and exciting programs in the country?
Jeez auburn bball seems to be falling apart. You hate to see it
Gattis getting exactly what he deserves is pleasing. So much for "his offense" not panning out in the fucking B1G.
What’s going on?
Lol. Forde holding nothing back
We really dodged a bullet not going for him
I wanted him. I wanted Marshall. I wanted Dabo
Never put me in charge of a coaching search jfc
What competent offense have we been impressive against?
Our last 3 games have been against absolutely horrible offenses. And Kentucky marched right down field on their first few drives. Thank goodness for bad snaps. I think they had over 100 yards in first quarter. And that’s with a QB incapable of completing a pass down field.
I don't remember suggesting anywhere in that post that WE have looked good against any competent offences. Only that we look better on paper. Teams with defenses we would have envied earlier in the season are allowing a lot of points right now. Clemson for example is giving up way fewer yards per game than us, but we have a lower total points allowed without the advantage of getting to play an FCS team. The average scoring offense of the teams they have played is 66th if you ignore their FCS team. If you include them, their average is lower than our. The only team in the P5 so far that seem to be doing well against teams that are normally putting up a lot of point is WVU.
Bds grass alert!
Bama -19 against Jax St. with an o/u of 150
