    Re: Really Hated to See the News About Anoma

    Shared some stuff about him with some select people on Monday. It's really up to him, but at this point, it's completely up to him whether or not he decides to be a part of this team.

    I haven't talked to my guy since last week, and this ONLY MY OWN PERSONAL OPINION, but I would be shocked (albeit pleasantly shocked) if he's in an Alabama uniform when we suit up vs Duke.

    Could he? Yes. That's not the plan though. They want to redshirt him to help him get ahead with classes and to get over some nagging injuries. But everything is subject to change.

    William, can you go into the issues? Is it impatience? Homesickness? Hard-headedness? What?

    I really hope you are incorrect in that prediction (I’m sure you hope you are incorrect as well).

    On the surface and on the (FAR) outside looking in, immaturity. But I don't know him or his situation, so I can't say for sure.

    With Alfano being a true DE and weighing over 280 lbs I don't see him doing it. I think we see Chris Allen step into the role and he is a good one but is coming off a season ending injury from last year.

    Deleted by poster.

    Edit: If the issue is really mental illness, as has been reported in subsequent posts, my original post was obviously and badly wrong. Deleting until this is clarified.

    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Allen would have been in line to be with the 1s anyway. Anoma hadn't secured a role with the starters (edit: first organizational groupings) yet. So we're good so long as we don't have any more injuries.

    Jennings on one side. Lewis on the other. Any combination of Davis, Ray, Dale, Mathis, Young, Barmore, Eboigbe inside. With Allen providing extra depth behind either of those guys, and not forgetting that Moses also plays with his hand in the dirt. This will mean that McMillon, Moody, Lee, and/or Harris have been able to come along and run point in the middle.

    All that to say, we will be fine....better than fine.

    One of these days I'm going to figure out the twitter handle of some of you. Often I see very similar comments posted on here and twitter and always wonder if its the same person or not.

    Mental health is serious issue in our world that doesn’t get the same ‘glitz and glam’ discussions as a lot of other health issues we address in our society. The more I think and read about Anoma, the more I think mental health is a problem here

    I was wondering how long this would take to come out.
