Byran Matthews just said its official.

Yup...just heard that. Tubs said that it was Gabe's decision, and it was a "smart one" since he'd probably get on the field more. Tubs also said that he was "proud of him"....

Gabe is a great kid. I realize I am not on the team to watch him in practice, but I am really surprised that this kid didn't get a crack at more PT at TE. The kid is amazing. He has circus catches and game winning TD catches and doesn't drop the ball. He has great work ethic. I am not doubting our coaching staff, but I would just like to see with my own two eyes as to why he is not playing.

He has been inconsistent catching the ball.

I guess it is just the difference between game time and practice. Apparently:

Gabe catches in the game and not in practice and Trott catches in practice and not in the game :rolleyes:

According to Tate, this really sounds more situational than McKenzie not measuring up @ TE. Somebody needed to step into the position since Raven Gray was still having knee problems.

Was he a DE in high school? I'm trying to remember. I do recall reading an article recently about DE not having guys step up (like Gray).

He played offense and defense in high school. I believe Rivals had him listed as a DE and not as a TE when he was being recruited.

If CNS were Gabe's coach, we'd be hearing about how big of a )*@( he was for moving the kid.

Nah, how much did he pay him to move would be more like it.

Thank goodness CNS isn't his coach :cheer:

Besides bammers are supposed to put Saban related posts in the Rival's Forum.

Remember Jay Ratliff. Great athlete who started out a TE and ended up on defense. Then became a solid player in the NFL. I predict a similar future for Mckenzie. He has all the tools.
