-- McElroy points out Alabama's scored non-offensive TD in every game dating back to the Cotton Bowl.

-- Saban arrived. His first comment to media guest Greg McElroy was about how he waited 3 years to start, then won a national championship. Hard to believe that's a coincidence.

No doubt. Like I said previously - if this is really a loophole, why haven't we seen it tried by other players (particularly QBs)? Unless its a new rule, seems odd that NO ONE previously has tried to exploit it.[FONT=&]
Unbelievable if this actually works for him.
Cornwell's foot continues to be a problem. If he can get mobile, his arm is really better than Bateman's, possibly better than Hurts or even BB's. However, it takes more than an arm...I wonder if Cornwell works into the backup role and gets some snaps down the road....
One thing is certain - he will not get another shot like he had at Alabama. I do not wish him physical injury, but I do hope that this move bites him in the behind. I hope that he comes to regret this.A lot of speculation on where he'll go and what will be the outcome. Earle mentioned it earlier today, and I'm guessing that if the family continues to do what they did here, very few programs will be very eager to pursue him. Would think it would take a program that would be willing to promise BB become the starter the day he becomes eligible.
Yeah there is a huge difference between wishing that he doesn't succeed and wishing that he tears an acl or something physical. It is pure classlessness. Which is extremely hypocritical because those saying that crap are also accusing him of classlessness.some of you should be ashamed of yourself, wishing injury on him.
