    You nailed it. I think leadership (or lack of it) is what kept Bama from having 4 BCS championships in a row.

    Since I haven't seen it mentioned, DJ I want to give you props as well for getting your degree in December. You said last year you promised your Mom, and you have definitely made her proud.

    Re: Fluker going pro.

    I've said all season that I think DJ needs another year to develop because he still has a little ways to go from a passing blocking perspective in my opinion. However, I'll also say this--He has possibly improved more in a period of a few years than any player we've ever had.
    If he maintains that same work ethic he'll be fine.
    I can't blame any youngster for reaching for an opportunity and I'm sure he discussed his draft status with Coach Saban before his decision and they feel good about it.
    Therefore, I'm sure it's a wise one and I wish him the very best and thank him for his time at the University.
    Thank you D.J. and good luck my man!

    I got his autograph last year before he was "all that". Pretty cool that just two years later he's going to the NFL. Hope he gets put on a decent team and his talent doesn't go to waste!

    Thanks for everything big 7-6. Literally a huge part of our success the past couple years. Here's to a long and healthy NFL career!
    That's the paradox of success. The moment you stop to enjoy it, you are in trouble. You have to keep moving forward. It's not what you have done that's important. It's where you are going.
