  2. I didn't just look at the box score. The stats were for your benefit and to back-up my discussion. I watched the game and saw what I'm saying. The Minnesota O-line was pushing our guys all over the place and exactly where they wanted them. They had blockers making it to the second level consistently and closing off run fits. Our O-line was having a hard time just holding ground against their D-line let alone open holes or generate any push. It's interesting you mention Bo and Stidham. Stidham got clobbered early in the season in 2018 and for the remainder of the season he was watching his

  5. Lol. I get the feeling if Gus gave everyone on here a gold ingot, there would be a majority who complained that he placed it in their wrong hand...

  6. It seems to me that the issue is that it looks as though you're being intentionally obtuse and refuse to concede the point that having a lot of offensive linemen on scholarship is not the same thing as having good depth at all the positions on the offensive line. To take the total number of offensive linemen on scholarship and divide that by 5 tells us nothing about depth if 15 out of 18 of the scholarship offensive linemen are centers or guards. And then to declare that you won the argument when you missed the whole point of the comment and to claim that people are giving you crap about it

  7. The knee jerk reactioners are really going to lose their minds when they realize this isn’t an Elite 8/Final 4 team this year but 99% of us are very aware of it. I wanna see Jamal Johnson and Devon Cambridge and some of the other young bucks get meaningful minutes and improvements on a tournament team so they’re seasoned for next year. Enjoying the ride this year, regardless of how bumpy

  8. Lol bro. Come on. This is college basketball. Games like this happen. You know this. Especially when the talent gap is not wide at all between 2 teams. I can see us having a lot of games like this on the road this season. We have talked all season long how bama is a lot better than we thought.

  9. War eagle, everyone. No one expected to go undefeated all year but it really SUCKS to have our first loss come to the turds in turdtown. Absolutely worst game we've played all year and if we played like we normally do on the offense we win this game. 21 turnovers isn't gonna cut it. Shooting 32% from the field isn't gonna cut it. Having our guards have more turnovers than points isn't gonna cut it.

  10. Granted we've sucked, but I've been impressed w/ Bama tonight. They've hit free throws and Lewis has killed us. Every single time he's blown by us. He's killed Samir.

  14. I just can't support Bruce anymore man, I like winners and in 6 seasons we have 0 titles, 0 title games. Bruce can't get us past the final four, and even that was only once (we really paying 4 mill a year for "participation trophy" seasons?) I guess some fans are cool for settling for "might have been" and "so close" seasons. 🤷‍♂️

  15. Gus isn't a CEO. Some people are; some aren't. I will forever be thankful to him for his contribution to 2010; and his efforts in 2013 and getting so close to a Natty. However, his day has come and gone. He has not evolved or made any effort to reinvent himself or address the systemic issues leading to underperformance; which is the hallmark of a good CEO. He's is now 1) an above average recruiter in skill positions and a below avg recruiter for linemen, 2) a once oustanding position coach who has become an average position coach, and 3) he has a track record of misfires on assistant c

  17. So like I said adjustments will be made, you can't depend on our guards. Their guards ran circles around us and our perimeter defense has been showing signs for a while.....Wiley looked ok tho........If you follow my posts you shouldn't be too surprised It's just one game and we'll get back to work and get better!

  18. I was steaming mad during last spring when Kira Lewis and Petty decided to come back. So Oats walked in to a fairly talented team. It is not gutted like the situation Bruce walked in to. That is what really pisses me off. If they lost those 2 they may of been like Vandy last year and that would of been amazing to see. Kira was the best player on the floor all night long and it was not close. GOD I hope he goes to the NBA after this year. He is hell to guard and stay in front of. At least Avery put the clamps on him with that trash offensive system! haha.

  19. Love how honest he is and I have 100% confidence that he'll have those young men ready to play on Saturday and we won't play that bad again this year. Every team needs to get punched in the mouth and the way Bruce coaches, there's no way these players aren't going to get back up ready to throw fists.

  20. We all knew that we would not go undefeated. But to lose to uat in anything is the absolute worst. I can stomach a loss when you play well and just get beat. But to play this badly does not sit well. Bruce has to get their attention again and not let this happen again. War Damn Eagle!!! And good night.

  31. I'm not sure we were watching the same team. I seem to recall Bo having to run out of the pocket and throw the ball away lots of times this year as well as there were not many (if any) games where he was not sacked. I also don't remember too many games this year (at least against teams with a pulse) where our running backs were able to carve up the defense or run unimpeded because they had huge holes to run through. These things happened because of O-line play or lack there of. So what does that make Saban and Kirby? Their lines are slap full of 5 star talent and yet, neither team made

  32. All these last 10 or so posts are really good evaluations of the current situation. Which is all the more troubling since, other than friggin Minnesota, we almost won every game against those amazing teams we barely lost to. I'm an old fashioned guy; it starts up front. If we fix the line; we fix the root of most (not all, but most) of what afflicted us this year. If we fix the line, we can actually get some 1st downs and control the ball. Even Terry Henley was SEC player of the year; it had nothing to do with him...I was faster and had more moves than he did; not back then; but now!

  33. Agreed. I've felt like our best years in Gus' system was when we had excellent OL/QB who can run. We ran it down people's throats and there was nothing they could do about it. It greatly impacted those 1st downs where we get 5+ a carry. Then set up for what would be a successful 3rd and short, which we were awful on this year. This would set up a great RPO/play action/rollout, keep the defense on the field, control the game, and score points. Fix the OL for good + keep a similar roster/coaches and I think we have a 10+ win season year in and year out. What's frustrating is that Gus had a chanc

  34. I woke up this morning and that was my first sports-related thought. I was there in person vs NC State and this one was just like that except Bama blew it open late in the game. Samir reminded me Bryce Brown vs NC State last year. Nothing could go right for him. ------ Guys we played really bad. Bama was part of it but it looked like we, as a team, weren't ready for Bama's aggressiveness, the energy in the building, or Bama's tempo. Kira Lewis was a beast out there. I mean, super impressive. But hey we played really badly and the game was in reach until the last 3 minutes. L

  36. Yeah it's just one game. Now there can be plenty of reasons but we can't shoot that well and we don't create a bunch of good shots for each other so games like this are bound to happen. Samir and McCormick has to work very hard to be considered average. They aren't stars. Defensively though.....we should be better. Our guards needs to be checked back to reality

  37. McCormick and Doughty combined for more turnovers than points. That’s the reason for the loss. FTs too. EDIT: Not quite. 11 pts, 8 TOs, 7 by Doughty.
