    I'd always read that Barron covered up the injury....did the coaches know he couldn't raise his arm?

    If so, that really was a mistake to play him.

    That just makes him a better coach. The main reason why we'll be hoisting the shiny football.

    Re: Barrett Jones still on crutches and casted

    I can see some of the concern. He was suppose to be ready after Christmas. Now he is suppose to be ready the week after Christmas. It doesn't sound like it is progressing like they expected on the surface. Again, I think it comes down to get him as close to 100% as possible and they don't want to risk reinjury in the game.

    I think we should all freak out.

    Barrett will not play barring an absolute miracle from someone close to the team. Ryan is ready. Has been practicing hard and is game ready. We will be fine. So we beat em by 17 instead of 30. Roll Tide.

    That's a pretty bold statement you make. Who is that someone close to the team?

    Take it for what it's worth. It's pretty worthless I know, but personally I have absolutely full confidence in Ryan. He has explosive quickness and great size, but not a fat blob. 4 star recruit that has absolutely been coached up. We will be just fine.

    Barrett knows the playbook & game plan as well as our coaches do..Perhaps we're just giving Barrett as much time as we can to heal up..Barret will play..This game is exactly why he came back his senior year..Not to end his career on the sideline..He will play..
