Hey guys you take away a couple of throws and Milroe looked pretty sharp against Texas!
we all have moments we'd like to take back. i once threw up on a girl at Gallettes.
and we basically contained zeke all game in the sugar bowl!
Better take away the ones that Texas dropped too. Getting closer to 5 then.
Don't make me throw up. Can we talk about basketball?
The weather should be real nice!
I expect to have a good time tomorrow.
Less than 40 days!!
Should finally have some good news next week it looks like.
This class if things fall our way it has the potential to be our best class ever
damn sure ain’t football
Not with all those NIL’s and tik toks and whatnot
We could use some NIL on this team. Some New Interior Linemen. Can I get an amen?
Why not tackles too?
If the grey hairs aren't going to stand up and be loud at games they might as well open their checkbooks to NIL
Ill be damned if we couldn’t use him
Cheesy but the part at the end about our QBs made me chuckle

Why did no one think of this before? Stephen M Smith surely has all the answers to our offensive woes
UPDATE 1 P.M. ET FRIDAY: BetMGM has toggled between 'Bama -7 and -6.5 a couple times this week and is currently at -6.5. Early spread tickets and money are almost 2/1 on underdog Ole Miss.
Early bettors like the Rebels even more on the moneyline at BetMGM, with tickets and money beyond 9/1 on the road underdog. Ole Miss is currently +210, while Alabama is -275.
The total went from 55.5 to 56.5 Monday, then peeled back to 54.5 by Wednesday. This morning, BetMGM returned to the 55.5 opener. Ticket count is 2/1 on the Over, but money is running almost dead even.
UPDATE 3:30 P.M. ET MONDAY: Alabama (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) seemed to have a Week 3 hangover after its Week 2 home loss to Texas. The Crimson Tide went to South Florida as 34.5-point favorites and found themselves tied 3-3 at halftime.
'Bama went on to an extremely lackluster 17-3 victory and has questions at the quarterback spot. But coach Nick Saban said today Jalen Milroe will start this week.
Meanwhile, Ole Miss is off to a 3-0 SU and ATS start. In Week 3, the Rebels wrecked Georgia Tech 48-23 giving 17 points at home.
TwinSpires hasn't moved off Alabama -7 on its college football Week 3 odds board. But ticket count is 2/1-plus and money almost 2/1 on Mississippi.
"Ole Miss getting 7 vs. struggling Alabama is too good to pass up. Mississippi is a very trendy 'dog this week," Lucas said.
The total is stable at 55, with 55% of tickets/58% of money on the Under early on.
Roll tide boys and Glimmer. We might fucking suck but we're still going to kick Ole Miss' ass.
This is the second time this year in a total I can count on one hand I've taken the other team and the points since basically '09 in one of our games. One of the others was Texas basically last minute the day after I predicted us to win by like 17 when I thought more about my main concern going into the game (Sweat and their DL vs our interior OL especially) + Sark and his first round weapons taking advantage of a few young guys on D that early in the season/scheming Worthy onto a less than 100% Moore and Arnold at least a couple times for deep shots. I wasn't as worried about Milroe at the time but thought he'd struggle enough to make it a close home win for us... we know how that turned out.
I think we win, but probably ugly/very close. Lane makes emotional decisions in this game that he tends to not in others, and I'm banking on Pete sucking enough with what appears to be a just as confused defense as ours used to look under him to make a handful of explosive plays and pull it out in the end. Fully expect Milroe to take 3-5 sacks and turn it over at least once but move the offense substantially better than the bench crew did at USF.
Power Ranking Alabama's Issues for the Ole Miss game:
(1) Will the OL play improve?
(2) Will Rees/Wolford/Saban continue to leave Proctor on an island without TE help even if he's getting whipped?
(3) will Rees call plays best fit to the strengths and weaknesses of the offensive personnel?
(4) will Milroe limit to just 1 turnover and show incremental improvement in the intermediate passing game?
(5) will Alabama play some of the younger DL and/or will the DL show incremental improvement in terms of pass rush pressure?
tough but fair
If you had to bet on it, would you bet that Saban retires after this year or comes back for at least one more season? And why? I honestly don't know. I'm leaning towards retirement. People love to say that he won't go out after a bad year. But I don't think that's much of a factor for him. If that was true , and we really are on the decline, and win totals continue to decrease, then by that logic he'd never retire. People love to read into his body language or what he says at a press conference. I don't think any of that means shit. I just think he's been coaching a really long time, he's getting old, and we are very very close to the end.
If we lose this game I’m going 100 percent retirement.
Ha, that’s a lot of money to walk away from. I think he stays a while, even if we suck.
He’s been pretty nonchalant about everything this far.
I didn’t learn until today this was the first week Lane started doing a Sunday presser mainly to get out in front of the week. Without question in my mind he had that question about TRob and Kevin Steele teed up first. With OM not on Alabama’s schedule next year Lane thinks this might be his last shot to beat Saban. Where will Lane be in 2025 probably not OM if I had to guess. Will saban be in Tuscaloosa still or be at Espn I don’t know?
Lane is a loser…calls finebaum out this summer for saying Saban is done and then Lane does this. Take this Taylor swift level drama and shove it up your ass.
If you had to hire someone else after this season, who would it be? I don't know much about Dan Lanning but he seems to be doing well at Oregon. Wonder if he's a viable option. People like to bring up Lane. I don't know if he's a good enough recruiter and also I question whether he has a good head on his shoulders. Seems immature and not ready for a gig of this magnitude. Just being a good OC is not enough. He's never done much as a head coach. Sark would not leave Texas for Alabama. I just don't see many elite options out there that are realistic.
Probably an overreaction and recency bias but Sanders operates the new NIL/portal era of cfb like no one else and kids are pumped to play for him.
He would annihilate the recruiting game at Alabama. I need to see how he is as a head coach on the big stage though. He's doesn't have close to enough of a resume yet . He could even end up with a losing season this year. But definitely intriguing. I'm not sure anyone knows how he is as an X's and O's guy. Or is he just a CEO? Perhaps he's mostly a figure head and recruiter that surrounds himself with a smart staff in terms of play calling and that's all he needs.
I want to see if he can sustain anything before the idea of prime going to a major program is considered.
Colorado is the biggest fraud in football (aside from us). I love Dan Lanning.
The game still comes down to the line of scrimmage. Colorado has a very good QB, a few good WRs, a good RB, and a few good DBs. They haven't played a team capable of exposing them on the lines of scrimmage.
Prime is absolutely my first call, but I would understand the reservations. Still a lot of flash without the hardware yet, but now is the opportunity to take that risk before he goes somewhere it will be hard to get him away from.
There shouldn’t be many places that Alabama can’t hire coaches away from.
I’m fine with having a loaded roster even if the coaching isn’t 5 stars. Give me an elite roster over elite coaching all day. I don’t think we’ll be fortunate enough to have both with our next coach.
I agree completely, but on his current track, my guess is Deion will get one of those if we try somebody else and it doesn’t work five years down the line.
The problem is the coaching pool is as shallow as it’s ever been.
Kirby, Riley, Harbaugh, Day and Sark are likely the only ones off the table.
After that there’s no one out there without a decent amount of risk.
I would lean Norvell or Deion, with a nod towards Prime because he’d be comfortable being himself and not worried about following Saban.
Y’all have lost your mind with Deion being your #1 choice.
Have you ever seen someone win the toss in OT and take the ball first?
A reporter asked deion Saturday night about his decision for Colorado to go for two in the 2nd OT,
Deion responded “points…the analytical people up there.. etc”
how about, uh I had to bc it’s literally the rules
There is no slam dunk replacement right now. Saban needs to hang on a few more years so we can see if Prime or Lanning can handle it. If he retired now we would be stuck with Kiffin. I’m not 100% against it but I’m pretty close. I don’t think he has the maturity for the Alabama job.
