Yes, Barrett Jones is a very accomplished young man and one we can all look up to. Can you imagine if he played for Notre Dame? I expect he would have been deified by now.
Barrett Jones is one of the all time greats for Alabama, but DJ doesn't get his due. Yes most of us know how good he is, but alot of people on this board only talk about his struggles with pass protection and him giving away our playcalls.
He has drastically improved over the course of the season and has helped motivate our team to a level that us on the brink of #15. The way he gets all fired up does wonders for our team that none of us know about.
He is one of my all time favorites to wear the Crimson.

Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

GL to BJ!
Call me clueless, but I have been wondering what MNC stood for since having seen it in other threads. That was a new one for me. Guess it is above my pay grade. School says 14, works for me . Apparently ESPN is giving us credit for 9 and ND for 8. Both are programs neck deep in tradition and success. I am not a ND fan by any means but I do respect their impact on college football as we know it. ROLL TIDE!
Manti and Barrett just did an interview on CFB Daily together before the awards show. Barrett really loves that camera. He is a cool dude. After a great NFL career, he will for sure be an analyst.
I also like to see the banter between Manti and Barrett. Looks like they have become good friends.
