    For what it's worth, listening to talk radio this evening Wes Neighbors had nothing but big praise for Benton after watching the scrimmage Saturday. Barring another injury he feels confident Moses and Benton will get the job done. He also mentioned he's never seen an offensive line with this much potential and thinks they will be the best in bama history. Here's to hoping he's right on both!

    If we can consistently convert 3rd and short and keep Tua upright, Iíll agree.

    I couldn't agree more! One of the places I hope to see big improvements is 3rd down consistency.

    I wonder if it`s possible to scrimmage without LBs? I`m kidding ( but only a little! ). I know the guys other than Dylan need the work. Intrigued with Benton. Thought I saw somewhere that somebody who has seen them seems to think he could be fine ( Wes Neighbors, maybe? ). OOPs! Just saw the above post where it was Neighbors. Sorry.

    Obviously hope he`s right, but that`s a tall order. Evan Neal working with the first O line. Just mix and match? Due to Matt Womack being dinged?

    There have been rumor for a while that Evan Neal is going to earn a starting job. Apparently he's too good to keep off the field.

    Was told Benton was the best LB on the field Saturday. A guy in his third year in the system, so he should know the playbook well enough to get the job done.

    Hope so - he has not seen much game action.

    Can Benton call the plays I guess would be the key question. Or would that go to Moses?

    Man I hope so. Would be an awesome story as well.

    There was a well-respected poster on an SEC board who was present and said Benton was "lights out" in the scrimmage.

    That sounds great. I'm looking forward to getting some notes from practice, and some words from the big man about ILB going forward. OLB's should be outstanding and if Dale is as advertised the middle should be solid even if not as dynamic as last year with big Q. Putting a solid guy at the other ILB will get the front seven in a good place with what I expect to be a veteran, nasty secondary.

    That would most likely go to Moses.
