    I don't know if the Bryant Scholarship will apply to grandchildren of players, coaches, etc or not. Someone with more knowledge of what will happen with the Bryant Scholarship funds once there are no more kids eligible under the original terms. I'm sure there still a few kids around from players in that era that are still eligible but there can't be many. I'm friends with a guy who started for Coach Bryant in his last game against Illinois and his youngest child is now 13 (I think). He and his wife had this child later in life than typical (early 40's) so I have to believe she is one of the last remaining eligible kids.

    Also, as I understand it if a player is on a non-football scholarship and they play in their first 2 seasons then they do count against the 85 total.

    I just can't believe Taulia is better or as good as Tua. Seems realllllly unlikely.

    I think the only fair way to compare the two brothers is to look at how Tua was playing when he was the age Tulia is now. As we all know, players often improve their play with age and experience.

    I agree...... don’t think anyone pushes him into something he doesn’t want

    I think next year is both Jalen and Tua's last year. (Yes, I think Jalen comes back next year.) And, they both get drafted.

    I've heard Saban say that "not being part of a team" scares him to death. That leads me to believe he will be around as long as his health will allow it. Number of championships have nothing to do with it. I hope I'm right.

    I’d look for Saban to keep Enos....... open that check book, and Locksley will possibly get a head coaching job

    FIFY. And totally agree there is no way he stays for his 4th year.

    Agreed. Taulia is not as accurate IMO. In one game this year I think Taulia was 25 for 45 for over 400 yards but no way Tua would have had 20 incompletions. Taulia's arm strength may be as good or better than Tua's however.
