    So Moody, Benton, Lee, Kaho and Harris need to step up.

    The obligatory pre-season season ending LB injury. Just amazing!

    He will at some point, but i was hoping he would get a red shirt season to bulk up some. Though he will be star player at some point.

    I didn't want Robinson to be redshirted.. I was hoping he would play on special team this year, and get some reps. There is always a chance that Najee and Robinson Could go after this year. Trey and Robinson needs to be ready.

    Re: 8/10 Scrimmage Updates

    I'm of course not happy to hear about the injuries, both at spots we don't have much depth. But at LB we have had McLain, Hightower, Mosley and possibly a few others who started as true freshman and nobody saw a weakness. So my question is why now does it take 2 years experience for our MLB's to get to the point of knowing what they are doing? and why did Mack Wilson not know what he was doing in his third season? At some point the former position coaches are going to have to own some of this. Hopefully the new coaches will do a better job of getting them ready.

    The Sanders injury won't matter IF we don't get any more injuries. We have two game experienced players left and during the season they tend to get beat up so sometimes you end up leaning on one more than the other and visa versa. The question might be is Jerome Ford more than his three star rating?

    Looking back through my records Nick Saban has only inked 3 RB's less than 4 stars. Jermaine Preyear, Ivan Matchett and Jamar Taylor. Ford has already logged more game snaps than those three combined (I don't think any of them ever took a snap). Glen Coffee on the other hand was a three star guy recruited by Shula and he ended up being a 3rd round draft pick.

    Seems like ILB is in need of some good luck charms........ I am confident in the new guys, and believe they will step up

    I think when we see what he adds to our edge offense we will be happy he did not redshirt. I agree he will be a star player during his time.

    Trial by fire. He can bulk up after the season...

Glen Coffee on the other hand was a three star guy recruited by Shula and he ended up being a 3rd round draft pick.
    Mark Ingram was the 467th player, a 3 star, until 7 mos before signing date. He got an incredible bump of 341 spots. Josh Jacobs was the 514th player 2 mos before signing date, a 3 star, until being bumped up to 267. These were 2 of Bama's best during this era. Saban and staff wanted Ford and have not been disappointed to this point.

    Btw, Ford was a 4 star by the "industry standard" 247 composite - if that really matters. His tape is very good.
