    I don’t see people being negative, it’s just that he hasn’t shown anything to this point that he can play at this level. Could it happen? Sure. But I think it’s highly unlikely.

    Re: Is this the year Ben Davis “breaks out?”

    I don't think anyone is being negative. We are simply are being honest at this point. I don't think it's a sure thing that he will be with the team this fall. Every year, around summer time, we get a word that 2 or 3 players will leave the program.

    Bama Nation has been calling this one for years. Even though his 2016 classmate Mack Wilson vacated one of the starting inside linebacker spots, former 5-star Ben Davis is fighting an uphill battle against an influx of talent around him.
    Being shifted from inside to outside linebacker so many times makes one curious if it was all a little too much for the talented Alabama football legacy. He, obviously, looks the part, but three years in, it just hasn’t clicked.
    If you look at all the players who registered a tackle in 2018, Davis’ name is nowhere to be found.
    Tua has one more tackle than Davis.
    Maybe things will finally slow down for him and he’ll be able to secure a spot next to Dylan Moses, but the easy money is on him transferring out after spring practice.

    I hope so. I hope every player who hasn't contributed yet "breaks out."
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    At this point—unlikely. Last season should have been his ‘break out’ if he was ever going to have one. I simply haven’t heard of any forward progression whatsoever in his development.

    We're all pulling for Ben to see the field this year, even if it's mop-up duty, I just have that feeling we're going to see us blow out a lottttt of teams this year & we will see lots of players get snaps who wouldn't ordinarily get snaps in tight games..

    Would really love to see him become a contributor on the field.

    Oh, I don't know. They do inmate checks pretty regularly although if he can put up a poster on a wall and dig a tunnel, I'm sure he can get out.
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    Fourth year junior, missed spring practice with shin splints. Has never made a meaningful contribution, not even on special teams, never mind the fact that the last two years have seen devastating LB injuries. Even with multi-multiple opportunities, still couldn't crack meaningful playing time, let alone the 2-deep rotation. Not likely to change at this point.

    But I hear this kid Duron Carter is the real deal.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    The truth is so dank in this comment that my eyes are watering. It stings and hurts but there's no indicator that things will change.
