    I just crave the knowledge of how the team is progressing. I hate to see the injuries but there is nothing that can be done about it really. We just have to confide in the offseason program knowing that these guys are supremely conditioned. Just ready for the season to start man...amped up for some Tide Rollin' for sure!

    I agree. It seems like a major injury for every one, more often than not, an ILB...

    Agreed. I hold my breath when I click the link. Mostly it's about injuries, but I will admit kicking statistics play a part....

    With you on that, especially the injury part. Put them in bubble wrap or suits of armor or something!

    I am one of those who look forward to reading the daily articles/blogs but also hold my breath when I first open it, wondering if there are any additional injuries, guys in the transfer portal, etc.

    I know I can't control what happens in practice or games, but I am addicted to BAMA football and want the team to win #18; plus injuries have been a big issue the last few years. I hope this year's injuries will not be as bad and that the worst is over as far as injuries are concerned.

    Yep, if this keeps up, trouble we might have recruiting LB`s won`t have anything to do with depth or anything, it`ll be that it looks like it`s hazardous to your health if you go to Alabama to play LB! Bad juju.

    Well, we've used "thinness" in recruiting, so...

    I used to look forward to the scrimmages. Now I dread them.

    The injury bug caused me to think today that the staff may be limiting participation of some of the veteran players particularly those that have previous injuries such as Terrell Lewis and Anfernee Jennings. This would have the benefit of giving more reps to the younger guys who need the game experience.

    A character of CNS's great teams was the ability to dominate the LOS and stop the run. It isn't rocket science to see that couple key losses on the defensive front would ultimately make several SEC games on the schedule highly competitive.

    Most of us shudder to think of more season ending injuries to come.

    I think the better question would be does anyone not?
