    JessN: Auburn wrap-up: A loss of systemic proportions

    When you lose three defensive starters and you have thin depth, you back off on effective tackling drills in practice. Otherwise, you risk loosing more players - it’s that simple.

    JessN: Auburn wrap-up: A loss of systemic proportions

    I think there are several factors to consider in addressing where we're at. First, I don't think Saban's defensive scheme is necessarily the issue - we rarely run a traditional 3-4 defense any longer. In fact, Danielson said at one point today that we had been in nickel or dime the entire...

    Dylan Moses hurt according to Aaron Suttles

    Don't have the time this morning to read through 17 pages on this thread, but I've wondered why a disproportionate amount of LB's are going down to knee injuries on this team. I don't know if this is a factor or not, but the coaching of LB's today isn't the same as it was years ago. When I was...

    News Article: Alabama Hires Nate Oats From Buffalo

    I’ll state again - we had no choice but to let Avery go. His players had quit on him and if you let that go another year, you not only see all your players leave but you also loose what was left of your basketball support. I don’t get how you’re still beating that drum. What you seem to want is...

    News Article: Alabama Hires Nate Oats From Buffalo

    Lol... we’ll try to arrange a meeting with you and Greg Byrne so you can show him exactly where he’s “mismanaging things”. You must have some serious inside information to make a charge like that. You do understand donation $$$ are going to be decreasing due to the new tax laws right? You do...

    News Article: Alabama Hires Nate Oats From Buffalo

    For the last time on this thread, I’ll tell you that we can’t get a guy like you’re talking about. You speak as if we can attract that kind of guy. For the past three coaching hires, we’ve gotten a guy that’s an “up and comer”. That ought to tell us something as fans - the commitment for...

    Bama Players in the Transfer Portal (UPDATE: Petty & Kira Returning!!)

    Re: Kira Lewis in the transfer portal (Update: Petty & Giddens do the same) I want you to think carefully about what you have just stated: Alabama was paying “top 20 money” for less than a “top 20 coach”. There’s a reason “top 20 money” doesn’t bring a “top 20 coach” to the Capstone. Care to...

    Bama Players in the Transfer Portal (UPDATE: Petty & Kira Returning!!)

    Re: Kira Lewis in the transfer portal (Update: Petty & Giddens do the same) Then you'd NEVER have fired Avery because Alabama is not going to go out and get a Donovan type coach - even though you seem to think it's possible. Kira staying or leaving is not a "test" - the man only has a limited...

    News Article: Alabama Hires Nate Oats From Buffalo

    Re: Welcome Coach Oats I think this hire is one where there should be plenty of research before going off and spouting a lot of negative opinions. If you look into all the info you can find and then come back with criticism, that's fair. We shouldn't, however, be critical because his name...

    Bama Players in the Transfer Portal (UPDATE: Petty & Kira Returning!!)

    Re: Kira Lewis in the transfer portal (Update: Petty & Giddens do the same) He's not overly worried - he just still can let go of the idea that we never should have fired Johnson last week.

    Bama Players in the Transfer Portal (UPDATE: Petty & Kira Returning!!)

    Re: Kira Lewis in the transfer portal (Update: Petty & Giddens do the same) No... it's not the first "real test" for him. He's been in "big boy basketball" for four years and he's taken down some talented teams. Honestly, I don't think you really get it here - the man takes 2 and 3 star...

    News Article: Alabama Hires Nate Oats From Buffalo

    As I've pointed out consistently through this search, the assumption is that we can get someone "better" under the current conditions. Based on what you said about facilities means certain guys are not going to be willing to even look our way. As far as "how will he do"... if his guys will...

    News Article: Alabama Hires Nate Oats From Buffalo

    If you go back and listen the the presser on Monday, the “geographic footprint” comments show that he indeed was likely to be on top of the list. Byrne basically said “when a UA coach calls a recruit anywhere in the nation, they take the call”. Byrne is convinced recruiting won’t be an issue...

    Who replaces Avery?

    I wasn't wild about it myself, primarily because of the lack of any meaningful college experience. It was a wildcard turn - one that could have ended up great or one which ended the way it did. I like Battle, but I don't think that kind of thing was really in his wheelhouse. Byrne looks like...

    Who replaces Avery?

    Whenever we have major changes, either in football or basketball, you always want to stay with the incumbent... and you always speak as if you know things could have been salvaged (whether you're talking about Jalen/Tua or this situation). I live in the Tuscaloosa area and I know what every...

    Who replaces Avery?

    I played HS ball with Roy... when I was a senior he was a freshman. At the time, he was a gangly 6'8" kid who was very awkward. He turned into a terrific player in HS and an even better one in college.

    Who replaces Avery?

    I recall in his last several years, that offense infuriated me. It automatically made low post players spend two years learning the system before they could actually produce very well. As talented as Richard Hendrix was coming out of HS, he struggled in that system his first year. At the...

    Who replaces Avery?

    I seriously don't know who began the mess believing guys like Donovan or Stevens may be interested. I guess if you're going to dream you might as well dream as big as you can. :rolleyes:

    Who replaces Avery?

    I agree... primarily because with basketball you're dealing with significantly less players. However, it's not just a "rebuilding job", it's a "rebuilding job at a football school". From guys looking at all the available options, that makes a difference.
