  1. Eli Stove -- Torn ACL least it’s not a Safety Stinks, but we’ll see him back to form in 2020, if he returns. And yes, I know he could be “back” by fall, but outside of Adrian Peterson, I’ve never seen anyone even close to 100% back to form within 6 months.
  2. Pettway is a mess

    Can we blame this on weed, too?
  3. ***2018 NSD Thread (Feb 7th)***

    Christian Westerman is the only one that sticks out in my mind, but I’m fairly certain that was mainly “homesick-ness”, and only goes to support your point.
  4. Pettway Out for Peach Bowl

    What about Alex Armah?
  5. How are you preparing for Gameday?

    I will be watching games on multiple TVs all day long with my lady friend who actually knows and loves football (and is an AU fan). I'm driving 10 hours to see her and spend a weekend at the lake and in the pool before and after game day. I smoke meat and cigars. This weekend is ~28oz bone-in ribeyes on oak and mesquite on a little Masterbuilt 30" I won in a silent auction for medical research last year. Smokes are Undercrown T52s from Drew Estates. Brown waters are from Islay, Kentucky, and the clear is an Eloté Mezcal from Oaxaca (I'm on a tear with Mezcal). I don't have many friends. We should be friends. Bought that last year. Works great. Simple interface and makes other food prep/smoking/drinking/watching games easier. Btw, any word on the extent of damage at Franklin's from the fire the other day?
  6. scrimmage updates?

    I'll respectfully disagree, and say punter, though it's close and safety is more important, if only for the number of plays and likelihood of *Edit injurie(s).
  7. Nah, I'm pretty sure he's a bourbon man...
  8. 2017 Fall Camp - Sat, Aug 12 (Scrimmage #2)

    Yeah, not sure why I felt like he'd been here since Aromashodu..🤦🏻‍♂️

    McClain's added size coupled with what we heard of him preseason last year and have seen flashes of is exactly what I was thinking when I wrote my post. Hearing that and Slayton coming into his own as one of the only senior leaders at WR gives me even more hope for this year's WR corps. Coupled with the above quote RIR posted (and other recent revelations) about Tega and the potential of this OL (my greatest concern before fall, outside of depth at safety) are quieting my doubts and replacing them with muted hope.

    It's possible, maybe even likely, he was held out because he's a known quantity on the field, and they wanted to see others in that role to see how they performed.
  11. scrimmage updates?

    I think the true pecking order for RB is KP and KJ as 1a and 1b with MM and DB as 2a and 2b, respectively, as they are complementary in terms of their respective style and abilities.
  12. Four years later and I'm still mad

    I don't wish harm on anyone. That being said, if he were to sustain a horrific injury, causing him to miss a few years of football, a great deal of pain and suffering, and doubt to creep in about his future, my biggest concern would be what type of sandwich I would make for lunch.
  13. JaTarvious Whitlow question for the board

    Agreed 100% on the disbelief at his leaving, as well as his ability to contribute (when healthy). I think his early injuries perhaps made him feel he had a shorter time available to showcase his immense speed and talent, and felt as a limited-role player, he wasn't being given enough plays to showcase that talent, especially after multiple role changes. Pity; he was a smart kid, both in football and in general, and had ELITE speed, though it never quite showed as football speed. This could be due to a lack of long runs more than an indictment of his abilities. Here's to hoping we miss a repeat of the result in JT Whitlow.
