Very few of those things are relevant to other schools. And very few of those things at UA that I might be concerned over are big deals. Can only grade my own self.

"Do you know WHY Alabama fans are so jealous of us Auburn fans?" The uninterested GT grad was polite enough to answer with..."No. Why is that?" Then came the revelation that was probably born in 1963 when Tucker Frederickson went over the top of our D (which was very good). The War Eagle guy said, "Because...we enjoy a win longer than they do." I don't quote that because I was impressed. I quote it because I still don't understand Awbun logic as it pertains to Bama people.

    Sounds like the WR corps will be back to full strength. Personally, I hope Najee rests if he's not 100%.

    If NH has an high ankle sprain, I doubt one week of rest/therapy (as good as our's is) will make him ready enough to be effective, especially when the three other guys that play the position are all very, very good.

    Was that Najee's injury? High ankle sprain? Hadn't heard that. I feared that he had an ACL or a kneecap injury the way he was stoop hopping to the sideline. Can't lose Najee. He is a warrior.

    They have to enjoy a win longer, they get so few. We just move onto the next one which is usually the next week. They can go a long time between wins so they have to enjoy the last one longer.

    Saban said ankle sprain, not high ankle. My hope is he'll be close to 100% for Auburn and Georgia. I doubt we see him this week or next week against The Citadel.

    Pretty sure I heard ankle and thought it was a high ankle, which are tougher. I had one in HS and missed 1/3 of a season of basketball. Of course, I was just soaking in a bucket of ice water. No therapy and just natural healing.

    Yep...I got an elbow to the mouth and had to pull my bottom lip off my teeth. Coach looked at it and said...."Aaaahhhh. Get on up to the gym and wash it out. You tough.Oughta be ok"
    Been there too. I didn't talk back to him but today I would mimic my favorite Clint Eastwood line and growl through the blood and say..."Toughs got nuthin' to do with it." I also got an ankle sprain once when I was 26, and it has bothered me ever since. Mostly when coming down stairwells. Feel a snap ping in there. Ankle sprains need attention THEN healing time. We need Najee and Jalen...but I want these guys to be pain free in their daily lives. They get the best in care though so that will happen.

    Hopefully we can get it done with Jacobs, Robinson, and Harris. Robinson gets better by the game. Has great field awareness. Physical. Harris gets more physical during the big games. Glad he came back. Think about how lucky we are he came back with a guarantee of Pro money. Wow.

    Robinson is a really good back. Would be nice to see him play behind the #1 group of OL without having to face 9 men in the box anticipating run plays.

    al.com says ruggs / Smith doing everything... NH was practicing but not doing every single drill. Jalen was throwing but not running.
