    Bama Five stars that have struggled to make an impact:
    1. Ben Davis
    2. Mac Tyler (even though he never really made it here)
    3. Eddie Williams (discipline issues)
    4. Kendall Sheffield (transferred)
    5. Blake Barnett (transferred)
    6. Tyler Love
    7. Phillip Simms (transferred)
    8. B.J. Scott
    Didn't B.J. Scott transfer to USA?

    Yes, he did. I can't remember how well it worked out for him.

    Rodney Orr is on JOX's Three Man Front and said he has heard Ben had a real good summer and has had three good days of practice. He said it is a long way to go but it is possible Ben is turning the corner. I guess we will know soon.

    Praise the Lord! If he can keep improving, he will contribute this fall.

    I remember guys like Tana Patrick and Jerrell Harris making important plays during championship seasons their senior years, after having not seen much action prior to that.

    It'd be something to see Ben make that "BIG" play in the CFPCG for the W...

    Forced a fumble, in fact. But I was wrong about it being a championship year. It was 2013, apparently. Still, important plays in important games. I'll hold out hope for Ben until he graduates. You never know when your opportunity will knock.

    It would be highly unusual for a player to do essentially nothing, not even special teams for three years, then to make a meaningful contribution in his fourth.

    So I've been a doubter, and am still in the, "show me," camp

    Still, I'm rooting for him to prove me wrong.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Sounds like he’s at OLB with the 2s so far in camp. Shocking to hear, but will be excited for him if this continues.
