  1. He recruited the players. That’s on Gus if he is recruiting players who can’t even be close to hanging with Alabama.
  2. Leaving for the NFL doesn’t eliminate KJ’s right to have an opinion.
  3. This is an obvious comment, but we should adjust the offense to build around the player’s strengths instead of trying to shove a square peg in a round hole.
  4. Our offense is just not fun to watch anymore. So stale.
  5. Seems kinda like a blanket statement. Some of the catholic schools he played regularly send players to D-1 schools. NJ even has more players in the NFL than Alabama: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com/nfl-high-school-states-2015-10 I’m obviously not saying the competition is better in NJ, but you can find good talent there.
  6. I agree. Both posters can be correct. We heard all off season and saw in the spring game a short and immediate passing game that was not existent in the Clemson game. I don't count screen passes as a developed short passing game. So from that standpoint, it isn't the same offense we thought we would see. But yes, the run game looked just as unimaginative as always and we saw similar formations.
  7. To be fair, I would still bet that Ross runs faster than a 4.87.
  8. I totally agree with this. However, while the perceptions might be inaccurate, we are all aware that there is a belief that Gus and Sumlin should be on the hot seat. I know this is dumb with Gus getting the extension, but maybe that is it.
  9. I think it is possible that people are underestimating his speed because he does have a smooth, effortless-looking stride.
  10. I never heard or saw that. What I heard & saw was that he bulked up too much & needed to get used to the new body or trim down a bit. And I think it's semantics whether you call that bad weight or not. If it wasn't helping him, it was not good weight. Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to watching him play.
  11. What is actually very encouraging in that picture is how fit Byron Cowart (#9) is looking. I know he was carrying some bad weight last year.
  12. Thai could be off, but I see some similarities to Mike Tolbert even though Malik is taller
  13. That's because nervous is in your personality. I've picked up on that in the past few weeks. 1. Yes, Bigtime 2. No. JM does not have the grades for UNC. You mean it's easier to get into Auburn than UNC? The same UNC that gave away degrees just for writing papers. UNC only accepts 30% of applicants and has higher average test scores.
  14. I think it will be great to see our current strength coach have a full offseason with guys like Cowart and Holland and turn them into impact starters for us.
  15. That walk-on was Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.
  16. Anyone who gets to watch the Panthers now is constantly reminded how tight Cam's spiral is.
  17. This is very interesting. This further proves that this season is the not 3-9 season of 2012. Nonetheless, it is not good.
  18. I am sure he doesn't care but realistically, it would probably be better if he didn't carry the ball so much. It would keep him fresher, although, his best runs often do come in the 4th quarter.
  19. Both are completing 77 percent of their passes within 10-yards of the line of scrimmage. JJ averages 6.9 yards per attempt and SW 5.9 yards. JJ had 0 picks and 2 TD's from 48 attempts and SW already has 1 pick and 0 TD's from 22 attempts. Stat- I love statistics and all, however they aren't all equal. SW threw a int in the end zone. The field is significantly shorter here so a 10yd pass from the 10 yd line is not the same as a 10 yd pass from midfield. From a pure #'s standpoint 10yds is 10yds, but from a decision making standpoint they are completely different. How many int's has JJ thrown within the redzone? I can't recall any. Due to this, I actually don't agree with you. I think SW managed the offense significantly better than JJ. The midrange post to Duke that was dropped was right on the money without hesitation. Also, White checked down on a minimum of 4 plays to hit underneath receivers (mostly RB's) bc it appeared nothing was open downfield. We've watched JJ for 3 games and again, I am having difficulty thinking of 4 examples where he actually went thru progressions. We all love your assessment around here, but give us your opinion (not based on statistics which can be skewed such as the above examples). Who do you feel gives us a better chance to win? You feel better because White's interception occurred in the redzone? I don't see how that is better. I not talking about feelings. I'm talking about comparing apples to apples. 6 int's hitting open defenders b/w the 20's is a lot different then a RFr mistake throwing across the body in a short field. Take feelings out of it. Throwing an interception in the redzone is worse than throwing one in the middle of the field. It directly costs us points. That is what I was insinuating. That is if you are comparing one interception to another; I understand JJ has thrown 6.
