    Northwest Alabama when you're an athlete from around a one hour radius everybody will know everybody. Then as I got older friends moved and went to college in b ham and bigger cities and you connect with people. Then when I went to Auburn I was pretty well known for hooping in the ACT when the football players season over they want to come in and play the best people and you just get cool with everybody. Unfortunately you get into arguments with those people too lol. I was scared as hell one time when I messed around with a high profile player's girl. I didn't know she was with him, but I probably wouldn't have cared but still.....anyway I was nervous walking around campus. Then my roommates were from Lilburn, GA and they know people. First friend I met was from Prattville and his best friend was on the team. So I literally would play video games with dudes on the team everyday. I was just ok in Madden but I was awesome in NCAA college football games they used to come out back then. Then I got a reputation from that. Did the Auburn practice team stuff for basketball met alot of people from that. Then I was part of nsbe a couple of guys from that. And my apartment one year was right above I guess one of the head guys of the que's so it was always alot of people at our apartment building. But people I know they are usually northwest Alabama and Florence is my city. I remember Jason Allen was a little older but when Zach Gilbert first got on the team he was super cool with Quint Groves, and Ronnie Brown and Rosegreen. They came to Florence back home with him one time. Jason Allen was a super track guy too, high jumping,200 all that. They would do crazy stuff like see who could jump over cars and stuff like that. And we all kicked it. It's not much to do in a smaller town but the upside is whatever we decide to do everybody does it. And especially if you're from the shoals area if you grew up around 6 years older and 6 years younger and you were decent enough to play with the best people your summers are meeting and playing EVERYBODY. And yeah....that's about it lol

    That also could be something to look at. KJ has 20 carries in the first half.....we usually throw when it's obvious so more than likely he's ran the ball up the middle twice and has been drilled a should probably be bringing in a different back anyway

    That also goes back to my point. KJ was said to have the best hands out of all backs that came out. We did screens....hardly with him though. That one hand grab he had that one game was top 2-3 best catches last 3 years. Further more if it was going to be a pass that an actual tailback was going to catch we put in DB. If we were going to do the play action deep throw play we put in stove and fake the end around. We hardly fake when it looks like a running down. We do it on 2nd and 12 and stuff like that until we get a lead. If it's 3rd and long either a wr screen maybe hb screen or the statue of liberty hand off play. If I can read the stuff leisurely dedicated players are sitting on it. So I guess I'm saying it's much more about play calling to evaluate players. When we can run on teams get around 4 yds a carry we look fantastic. But if you have to adjust from that we just don't seem to adapt well. And I know everybody struggles if you stop the run but we seem to shut down as opposed to stutter if that makes sense. I think to overcome that type of stuff is to have your most talented players in

    Absolutely, nobody expects a blocker to completely neutralize a defender, a successful block is giving a person 2-3 more seconds.....we don't even really throw downfield enough imo to even think it's a big issue. I think the line is either going to be good or bad, I don't see a great blocking back making that big of an impact. Maybe a great fullback.....

    Especially when you think about how KJ's hands may have been his best attribute. Why not use that. If you can justify not playing a hb because he doesn't pass block on the other end wouldn't you use the same logic of this guy could literally play wr so let's get him the ball? I look at it in the same view you don't tell a QB that he can't play because he doesn't have the strongest arm. Everybody has something to get better at, especially in college. You don't sit a guy who has the most explosive play potential because you don't think his pass blocking is phenomenal. That's just my opinion

    Well you know I've had a history of this. I never understood everybody getting excited when we recruit and get the guy then automatically everybody wants the guy that's 220 to run the ball and the other guys can't carry the load or aren't good pass blockers.....I'm pretty sure somebody argued with me that KJ wasn't a good pass blocker when I was harping on him playing more when he was a's like a go to attribute to say

    Important tidbit about Boobee Whitlow

    I hear these stories and just because of my background I guess I wonder what if he played good could he be?

    Gus sending ‘em to the League!!

    Some players shouldn't even count.....I mean it's sort of embarrassing if you hardly played a guy who had NFL talent isn't it? It's sort of you're not doing a good job of identifying your most talented players for whatever reason.

    Starting QB Rankings for 2018

    I don't feel great about stidham, I think he needs reps to calm down a bit.

    Sad news -- Zach Gilbert

    This was one of my best friends. He is a guy I played football with. He is a person I would get alot of insight from when I posted and I'd stand on the word of what I said and i didn't care who someone would say was an insider because I knew I was getting things from the horses mouth. He was one of the pride and joy from Florence Alabama, NOBODY out worked this guy. Nobody here has to get what kind of person he was from any second hand talk.....I can tell you a hundred stories about the kindness of this man......I just thought I'd write this. I'm gone again. Man I'm so hurt

    Demographic Curiosity

    33 (4) in May Started at Auburn left when my grandfather passed. Electrical engineering at Auburn Finished in Chattanooga in nuclear engineering Was on the scout team my time at Auburn. Coach ciampi who at one time coached women's team wanted me to get into coaching. I was offered to walk on men's basketball team but unfortunately it was the same year my grandfather died and I had to leave Auburn. I have an basketball intramural championship and I lost one in the finals in football before. I've been kicked out of the ACT numerous times for dunking after losses. I think that sums up my personality. From Florence, west side to be exact, very proud of it, not many make it out. lived in Madison, Chattanooga, Augusta, Bloomington Illinois, and just recently found out that I've been offered and I accepted and I'm coming back to Chattanooga. What I'm most proud of? I can still dunk but I imagine this is the last year 😔 I've dreaded it for a lifetime.

    Scout Team

    Doubt scout team is ran like that. But could see it being a little different in this circumstance
