    Alabama announces a press conference with Nick Saban and Tua Tagovailoa on Monday 11am CT

    After all the AD coordinated intention announcements - the consistent graphics with their statement are provided by AD marketing - from the players over social media, I did not expect a press conference for Tua Tagovailoa. I don’t think this means anything other than the media probably had been...

    The Mandolorian

    So I finally got around to trying Disney+. The Mandolorian is actually quite good. Well acted and shot. Story has been solid thus far. Really reminds me of weekly western television show where our hero rides into town and fixes a problem before riding off into the sunset. Perhaps there is a...

    Where will this team rank in the Saban era

    The story still has one more chapter to be written but I think it is fair to start figuring out where this team falls in the Saban era. It is insane how empty this 10-win season will end up being compared to other Saban Alabama seasons if they don't beat their first good opponent in the bowl...

    Arkansas fire Chad Morris to the surprise of no one

    Chad Morris fired after 4-18 start Willie Taggart and Chad Morris deservedly didn't last 2 full seasons. Still, the economics of the sport has changed a great deal. You use to get a full recruiting cycle (4 or 5 years) when I was younger. The threshold for termination due to performance became...

    Home/Road Splits v. SEC under Saban and some other interesting stats

    I was looking up some stuff for another discussion and figured I'd share some interesting stat quirks: Alabama is undefeated v. Arkansas (12-0), Tennessee (12-0), Kentucky (4-0), Missouri (3-0), Vanderbilt (2-0). Alabama is 5-1 v. Georgia overall but 0-1 at home v. Georgia. All 5 wins came in...

    Fall Camp is Here

    Here's the kickoff press conference from Coach Saban: Highlights: - "This is one of the best conditioned teams coming out of the Summer" (Rest of the conference: :eek2:) - Reinforcing team-first attitude - Did not offer Zach Smith a job in Jan 2018 (ESPN clickbait'd something about this...

    Notre Dame is the reason we're gonna have to go 8 team playoff

    Pure and simple, any time it can be reasonably argued to put them in the four team field it is going to happen. They schedule helmets folks respect regardless of their quality. Accordingly when they go 11-1 or 12-0 then you can damn near bet on them being in the bracket. The only way to mitigate...

    Is it inevitable that the playoff games become Super Bowl-like corporate venues?

    So part of the discussion leading up to this game is the likelihood that the Alabama fanbase doesn't really takeover the Orange Bowl. It got me thinking about the affect that this will have on the playoffs in general because the playoff brackets have largely been a small group of usual suspects...
