The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

I was of the opinion that Black is crazy fast but needs to muscle up to take the hits.
Life is short, ocassionally bend the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
play him if he's cleared for contact and can make a difference. if he's as good as advertised he won't be here for 5 years anyway.
AJ will need as many targets as he can get. I do not think we will beat Georgia by running the football.

seems as though some of you dont know the type of WR Black is. he's not what i would call a burner. he's one of those guys who runs great routes, knows how to position himself to make catches, knows how to bait and fake defenders. just a natural WR. All of those things are what make him really good. I think the only way we burn the shirt is if another WR goes down.
The fact that Coach Saban is giving this serious consideration speaks volumes for how talented Black must be...
It was hoped that Duron Carter could play this season, and he reportedly was clearly the top receiver when he practiced.
Chris Black was expected to have a shot at starting this year as a true freshman, but a preseason injury has kept him out thus far.
Deandre White was lost for the year earlier.
Kenny Bell might not be able to play again this year.
I'm not really sure what you want, or how many scholarships you expect a team to have, but if you have four guys on the field practicing and all look good enough to start... and not one of them was available in the latter portion of the Auburn game, you do not blame that on recruiting. The fact that Alabama has enough guys to get by speaks to how good recruiting has been thus far.
Alabama has had a ton of players leave early, if Black is such a huge talent that you can't afford to burn his redshirt, then he's such a talent that you can because he's going to leave early anyway. Redshirts do not affect eligibility, so it's three years even if you redshirt.
Remember Coach Saban was gonna put AJ in if McElroy went down in the 09' National Championship Game.
In all seriousness we have been injury bug prone this year. Black was highly touted only two spots nationally below where Amari Cooper was. If Saban feels we need Black then I have no problems with it. He gets paid the big bucks to make those decisions. We recruit strong year in and out in the top 5. We will be fine.
losing Bell was huge. I wish him a speedy recovery.
