I mean at this point it doesn’t matter. You know your players, your playbook, and have an idea what the opponent is doing. If you can’t call a competent game that’s not the d that’s you. It’s not like he wants to run a cover 2 and it’s not in our playbook. I’m sure it’s not all on him (in fact Ive smelt a lot of Grantham stink on a lot of our 3rd down calls tbh) but at the end of the day your job as the playcaller is to see what’s going on and put your guys in the best position to succeed. He’s done that maybe 3 games in 4 years.At the risk of being castigated, I'll just throw this out there. I've wondered the same thing. I wonder what he could do if he had full control of the defense and could do what he wanted, rather than running "Saban's defense."
Sadly true.at the end of the day your job as the playcaller is to see what’s going on and put your guys in the best position to succeed. He’s done that maybe 3 games in 4 years.
I appreciate your use of the word "tump".Just knowing how Saban views recruiting, there's no way he is doing anything before the early signing day to tump over the apple cart. Currently, we have the number one recruiting class for 2023 and from what I've read and listened to, it is by a significant margin.
Now once ESD is over, I expect to see moves begin happening.
I appreciate your use of the word "whiffs."I appreciate your use of the word "tump".
Bama had what was called the greatest recruiting class ever in 2021. (link)
Looking back, it was the most overrated class in Alabama history. Tommy Brockermeyer, Camar Wheaton, Agiye Hall, JoJo Earl, Christian Leary, Kaine Williams, and Khyree Jackson are all gone (and I suspect one or two more will go too). Just a shockingly high number of whiffs.
I will withhold any optimism about recruits until they at least produce something on campus.
If Bill Gates moved in next door to me, I'd be living in the richest neighborhood in America. that doesn't mean i am rich though.....thats how "Stats" work....you guys kill me
Here is another.

All at or around the top 10. I get you hate Golding. That’s fine. But he’s a Top 10 DC according to the stats.
And those are just the next 4 that came up on my search.
I'm on board with you Captain.Not intending to be “Captain Obvious” here, but fact it has been relatively quiet in the days immediately after Leonhard’s decision to leave Wisconsin after their bowl game has me at least slightly optimistic. We know CNS wants to keep things on the QT until we get past early signing on December 21st. And the “quieter” it remains, the more I like it.
Leonhard may well decide to stay in Wisconsin and give the NFL a try at Green Bay. But if there is “interest” by CNS, you can bet he has made initial contact.
Now let’s all join hands and sing “Impossible Dream” together……
Let's just do top 50 offenses.I would like to see our points per game given up since 2019 against top 10 offenses. If you give up only 10 points, doesn't mean much if it's against a weak opponent, or bad offense. Our defense should be measured in relation to how well we stop top 10 offenses.
