  1. Derrick Ansley started right here in Alabama. Was a good friend and asst coach with one of my buddies. The guy sacrificed a lot to get started and actually turned down Saban and Kirby once to stay at Huntingdon before finally accepting a job with them in 2010. He lived apart from his wife for over year before moving on, but that was his big break. I think he was with Raiders for a season before going to TN. Anywho - outstanding guy that is one heck of a recruiter. TN may have been a joke on the field for a while - except when the clowned AU - but if Pruitt is going to succeed he has the staff to do it.

    For free..Chewacla Drive, walking up Thach toward campus, stopping for photo ops along the way and saving a meal cost. Others can weigh in on closer. Have a wonderful time with your little!

    Thanks! As it turned out there were not many people there at all and we parked for free in front of the the freewheeler. The icing on the cake for the day is that a nice older gentleman stopped us and gave us 3 tickets for free to the Nelson club. Football is forever ruined now. My 5 yr thinks it will always be that way!

    I was talking about the presidential election. I don’t know who I’ll support for Alabama’s Senate seat yet. 

    Bradley Byrne - Not just from the term limits perspective but from the standpoint of he isn't 73 years old and likely to leave congress near the same time as Shelby. This would leave AL without a senior senator. I prefer him over Tubbs for many reasons - mostly because I do not want someone who says I will blindly support/oppose a president. If Sessions wins then I would hope Byrne would take Shelby's seat when it comes available.

    If Moore would hop on his pony and ride into the deep end of a pool then Byrne might stand a chance.

  4. Ohio St and Clemson are in. No one will beat them (not even Penn St).

    LSU is almost assured in if they win. If they lose then we have to hope a 2 loss AU jumps a 1 loss team we lost against.


    Best bet is LSU throttles UA, we win out, and then it is a battle for the 4th spot.

    1 loss teams are potentially - Oregon/Utah/PSU (who i think OSU thumps hard)/and Oklahoma

    2 loss teams would be AU/uat/FL/uga (who may have 3 losses).


    No doubt we would have the best schedule, but I still think Oklahoma (even with the KSU loss) would get that spot even if we win out. If uat/lsu is a close game then we can shut down this conversation no matter who wins.

    Nope.  There's still just 85 scholarships.  Recruits don't always pan out and a school can't just take every player.  We'll continue to see consolidation of talent at big schools like we have now, but not much more.

    Thanks to the transfer portal, these teams will seek out the cream of the crop. After a year or two of Free Agency it wont matter if someone has to sit a year.
