    Butch Jones on Alabama Sideline

    Maybe Gus will apply to be an analyst while in Tuscaloosa next month.

    Butch Jones on Alabama Sideline

    Seeing Butch Jones on the sideline hugging and high fiving players just like assistant coaches. (Can’t miss the Seargent Carter haircut) Thought Analyst we’re restricted from on field coaching. Maybe we need a QB analyst.

    ** Ole Miss Game Thread **

    That was a well executed play by AU on the onside kick. Great blocking!

    The wrinkles are in the crumpled pages of plays in Gus’ trash can. Also called his suggestion box.

    What if we Win out

    If pigs fly and frogs had wings- we still need a change. The underdevelopment of player talent warrants change. A coach has to adapt to give the players a chance to develop. win or loss the University responsibility is developing and advancing students. Not providing a Stage to some introverted madman For self advancement.

    The ultimate defender

    I’d like your opinion on what I consider as soft practice. It’s nothing like good ole days. Started with Chizic and may influence Gus. I drank the koolaide when I saw Jeremy Johnson in practice. He was very good while wearing an orange Penny Jersey. (Non-contact). I quit going but suspect same with Stidham. id like your thoughts on a secondary effect. What has jumped out since Chizic days is bad angle/arm tackling on defense. During practice scrimmage they took angles for flag football. Perfect to tag as they run by. I’d complain during games to everyone sitting by me because they looked like they did in practice. It’s a half-step to to step behind in the angle to make a “form” tackle. Mostly called arm tackling. They practice arm tackling a lot in my opinion. Mushchamp changed this, but this year it seems to have returned on defense. Extrapolate to the O-line. One would think that blocking our DLine would make good test and evaluation of O-line talent. If QBs are non-contact does the DL run through the wall as hard. Easier to block someone putting on the breaks. You know the DL is not coming as hard as if they are trying to sack opponent QB. Isnt this a situation where you limit your ability to evaluate players at game speed? I was at Scholarship practice and the only plays that were “live” were kicks and punts. These are the highest percentage for injuries. It was something wanted because we had been fumbling punts. So it was few years ago. I quit going because that are so lame under Gus. We lack toughness. Other teams “punch us in the mouth”.

    AU opens as favorite against Miss State

    The SEC used to enforce the artificial noisemaker rule. Cowbells were banned at SEC games after a letter complaint from Coach Shug Jordan back in 1975. Times have changed with the stadium sound systems and rules been changed. At least they can’t bring them to opponents stadiums.

    Well remember Gus had Hand in OL last two years. Herb Hand was that is. Grimes had lot less to do with what is in the cupboard and more to do with Hands success here.
