  2. Holland going pro

    It definitely hurts the 2018 team, but I disagree that it shows players are not committed to the program. Sounds like Pettway was going to leave after this year regardless; Holland wouldn't have as much time to sack QBs in 2018 since the secondary will lose a lot of experience this year, and Carlton Davis and Kerryon grade out pretty well on the NFL draft boards. Also, Alabama will have at least four underclassmen jump to the NFL this year (and maybe 6-7). In the big picture, if we have players do well enough to warrant an early exit for the NFL, it helps the program IMO.
  3. Holland going pro

    There was a story after the SECCG that Holland at least intimated to Benjamin Wolk that he was returning to AU next year. I don't remember reading anything too direct in reference to Stidham. I think it is just assumed that he'll return since he could vault into a very high pick next year if he continues to develop. He's one of the few eligible underclassmen for whom sticking around another year really could pay dividends.
  4. Peach Bowl could be historic

    The Citrus Bowl isn't as good as the New Year's Six games (even though Notre Dame sounds like a more interesting matchup). The Orange has an ACC tie-in, which is why Miami landed there. Since the Rose and Sugar Bowls (which have Big Ten and SEC tie-ins) are the playoff semifinals this year, and since the SEC and Big Ten sent a combined 6 teams to the NY6 Bowls, there was more re-shuffling than normal IMO. UCF was guaranteed a spot in a NY6 game since they finished as the highest ranked Group of 5 teams. I would have rather seen them play Miami in the Orange Bowl, or match up UCF and Wisconsin since those are the two least interesting teams in the NY6 games.
  5. Draft Eligible Players/Depth Chart 2018

    I think one of KJ/KP return. On D, I think Carlton Davis is gone, along with Jeff Holland. Aside from those two, I think Javaris Davis would be the next most likely to leave behind those two.
  6. Peach Bowl could be historic

    Yep, Frost is sticking around to coach the bowl game. Nebraska's season is over, so I doubt they fought that too terribly hard. Honestly, Frost pulling an upset against Auburn would probably do more for Nebraska recruiting than if he went straight to Lincoln and started calling recruits.
  7. Projection: Peach vs. UCF

    Can we just make Wisconsin and UCF play one another to consolidate the crappy matchups into one game?
  8. did we just screw Bama........again

    Yeah Clemson and OU are the very clear two best teams. UGA and Alabama/Ohio St, I think, would get thrashed in matchups with those two.
  9. SECCG - Pregame Sights & Sounds

    Does anyone know if the roof will be open on Saturday?
  10. Tennessee targets DC Kevin Steele

    Doeren has now officially turned UT down. I think they're going to have to sink down to the OC/DC level to find someone to say yes.
  11. Jarrett Stidham in the pocket

    He makes at least 1-2 throws a game that really impress me. He has the arm talent to make all the throws, and his progression in the offense is becoming increasingly evident.
  12. Tennessee targets DC Kevin Steele

    Seems like I read yesterday that Malzahn said when he hired Steele that he said he was done looking for head coaching jobs in his career.
  13. Officiating

    There were definitely some bad calls, but all things considered, I'll take it against Alabama. The fourth down illegal procedure missed call was obviously the worst, but our defense made the play of the game to stuff them on the second 4th down.
  14. injuries?

    Where/when did you hear about Fitzpatrick? The last I heard last night was that he was back healthy.
  15. Chip Kelly to Florida?-Edit-UCLA takes him

    Chip Kelly is a great coach. I definitely don't want to see him in the SEC--though I think UF would be a better fit for him than UCLA.
