  1. You have now placed your finger square on this teams problem, their field general leader is SAWFT! The team takes on the persona of the quarterback. There was no excuse for him to slide on that play. In my mind it was the most clear example of this teams problem was his failure to get that first down so the team could kneel and run out the clock. Heck even Sean White would have tried to get it. Cam and Nick would have ripped off ten yards or scored. Anyway, i am with you and until he shows some intestional fortitude we will keep playing like we are now.
  2. Games go so long because the stripped shirts think people came to see them. If they kept their flag in their pockets it would take 30 minutes off the length of the game. In a boxing match the best ref is the one you never see. These SEC refs never heard that, they want to be seen. The Dean PI is just one of thousands of examples where the game would be better off if they just let guys play, but yet they have to be seen dropping their little hanky. Slows the flow, makes the game boring and generally is not good for the game. But hey they get their picture on TV. In any event don not talk about how lengthening the game is bad, just tuck your flag in your belt and the game will speed up without you.
  3. All i will say to the ones who defend stripped shirts is if this is going to be called PI then there will be 20 or more called every game. This is BS and you know it. Quit defending the defenseless. It was great coverage and i bet you every secondary coach you interview would tell you the same thing. However, as i have said the game is over and nothing is going to change. The SEC officials are going to continue just like now and nothing will change till it moves from BHam and Steve Shaw is gone. Period end of story.
  4. We now know the referee who missed/made the calls is from Jasper, Alabama. I am curious who he and his family cheer for? Not going to waste my time to find out, but if he did graduate or have family graduate from you know who, there is your answer.
  5. I have tried not to say anything about this subject because there is nothing that will change what happened and Steve Shaw and the SEC office will do nothing. However, these refs were either incompetent or worse. If i am not badly mistaken the side judge that failed to call the clear PI on Greedy Williams who grabbed from behind without ever looking for the ball was the same one to call J Dean when he ran for over ten yards with his eyes back on the ball playing the ball, not the wr and then who made a play on the ball and batted it away. Interesting. However, the clearest evidence of incompetence was the first PI call on the last LSU drive. The flag was not thrown untill the ball hit the ground. The call was PI. However, there is no argument by anyone that the defender never made contact with the wr while the ball was in the air. Yes, if you wanted to call what the defender did early in the route you could but by rule that would have to be a five yard penalty for defensive holding. Yet PI, the 15 yard penalty was what was called. That moved the ball forward 15 yards not 5. That is a clear error and the white hat should have known it and corrected it. Would ten more yards on the fg attempt made a difference? We will never know.

    2019 5* OG/C Clay Webb

    Everybody on here would love to finish with Putnam and Webb. Putnam is probably a better shot than Webb but there is a puncher's chance. Getting both would not solve the need for a real LT prospect. We would have four very good athletic highly sought after OLs but not one of them is a true LT prospect. However, to say that if we get neither then means we are left to taking people who were not on the A or B list is not fair at this point. Certainly Jones and Dubose were on the A list and we will not know who else we may get, if not putnam and/or Webb, untill February. However, we should not on this forum say anything that would be negative or perceived to be negative about Jones or Dubose. They are top notch prospects just not the big 6'6" or so very athletic LT prospect we need in the pipeline right now. It is always possible that Prince Sammons or C. Ashley or A.Troxell will step up and be able to be that LT guy, they have the size and athletic ability, but that has not happened yet.
  7. Everyone should also understand that a very good college RB does not have to be a five star recruit. The leading rusher in the conference Kylin Hill is a MSU soph who was a four star guy from Columbus Mississippi. there are very good backs around that are not at the top of the list. I bet some of the guys down the list we are considering will be one of those. Finding quality RB's is alot less difficult than finding a LT that can handle the speed of the DE's we face.

    I know it's only been two games but...

    WDE and i dont always see eye to eye and neither of us probably care about that, but he is correct here and i am not sure why. PT and MH practiced with an edge and confidence against their own who are better than any we have played or will play this week, but in the first two games that have as he said just been OK. They have to get better. I am with him on the Troxell being tough, he will get after it. Would not shock me at all to see NB and him in the starting lineup saturday.

    I know it's only been two games but...

    Just curious since WDE appears to have inside info do we stick with where we are and see if they get better or do we pull a Tuberville at UF years ago and start NB at center and Troxell at right guard? I hope everyone noticed that Troxell has probably moved ahead of CA at that position. Just curious.

    CorchJay's Top 8 RB (available/possible)

    To me it looks like a no brainer to push and take Tye! If he does not workout at RB he appears to be a can't miss LB prospect. We are struggling to get 1 or 2 more top shelf LB's committed and this way we potentially check 2 boxes with one person. In my mind getting 3 top notch LB's committed is more important since McBryde was injured and it is not clear whether he will come back for his 5th year. We need some insurance there. That would make Mickey happy for sure.

    E, who other than JDean would be in a position to go pro this year from the secondary? Only other possibility is JDavis and i just dont see him being in that high of demand by the league.

    You are absolutely correct we will lose the four DL's that started against UW but which DB other than Dean will we lose this year? JDavis is a Jr., he is not leaving. DT is a Jr., he is not leaving. JDinson is a Jr., he is not leaving. NI is a So., he is not leaving. Smoke is a FR., he is not nor is FR., J. Sherwood leaving. JPeters and JMyers are So., they are not leaving and CTutt is a Fr., and he is not leaving. We are bringing in a redshirt So. in Handy-Holly that will have 3 to play 3 so he will be there to add depth at safety. Looks to me like the secondary is loaded and with the committs we have now they only add to that.

    Then dont post! your no genius. Nobody ever thought King Dunlap would play a down in the NFL. Yet he was drafted and by Philadelphia in 2008 after going back on forth in losing his starting position at Auburn and played 7 or 8 years in the league. If you dont think there is a way Prince Tega could be drafted this year then your not as smart as you want everybody to think you are. Either way i could care less what your opinion is because i can assure you it is no better than mine. You ever even played OL?

    In regard to being underwhelmed with OL recruiting this year as E just pointed out we have 14 underclassmen on scholly. E and i disagree, i hope he is correct, that none of them try their hand at the NFL after this year. If so we will have a very experienced and deep OL next year. As to the two guys committed now, one is a four star guard, Jones, very highly thought of with a very nice offer list and the other Osborne was good enough for IMG to offer him to come from Texas to play this year there. I think those two are pretty good. With the good clearance to begin practice given Brahms we have good depth at center moving forward. The real need is for a true bigtime OT prospect and the only one i know of right now is in Juco. Unlike others i think Putnam could be as good as Golson was at RT but most think he is a guard. Whatever he is if we could get him he has a good looking future.
