    You guys notice the minimal celebrations when they make a play or TD compared to SC players celebrating as if they won the super bowl every time they tackle someone

    Notice Bama runs one and two back sets. Go figure. Harrell has never even considered this. He does not like swings, wheels, backs out of the backfield and use of the tight ends. But, he does not mind sending our receivers 3o yards down field into a zone on shorter yard plays. We can't run so we are pretty limited with this BS high school offense.

    In Clay & Graham we trust, It’s who we are. We don’t need TEs or RBs

    We don ‘t have one player who would start for Alabama. Drake London would get playing time, but he wouldn’t start.

    If Helton and staff had been Alabama coaches for last 3 years with exact same personnel, they would not snif the sec title game.

    Alabama staff at USC would have this same USC personnel winning pac12 and in the playoffs.

    We are weak, light weight and do not hit hard or tackle effectively. We lack discipline and we celebrate like we have never been there. Wait......we have not....LOL at least with Claydo

    We had an Alabama coach and didn’t these results.

    But to your point, Alabama coaches would not get this USC team with its present talent into the playoffs, nowhere close.

    Saban=Professionalism
    Helton=Amateur Hour

    Alabama's O-Line looks physically like an elite NFL team.

    Wow. Being beaten 52-24 you would think that Buckeye message board would be on fire with scores of OSU fans calling for Ryan Day to be fired. But it's not. Oh wait a minute. Their supporters actually know how to calmly process information without going crazy like a chicken with its head cut off unlike Helton haters.

    I actually think Ryan Day is a great coach and I think the fan base know that. They had Covid problems, but they made no excuses and said they would play with whatever players were available. I also think Fields was more hurt then people knew, but he was adamant that he was going to play. They had their championship game against Clemson and Day will use this game to show his players what they need to do next to actually win the National championship. He will get them back there again next year!
    Fight On!

    You are hilarious. Not even close. OSU is in the National championship. Your apples are not even in the same town as your oranges. We could not even get out of our shitty conference. Too bad you do not have the sense to know the difference

    What?!? Hell no -- we've never had a Saban disciple here. CLK and Sark didn't have their current maturity and discipline until after studying under Saban. Plus Sark coached USC with three sheets to the wind. Also both CLK and Sark had to deal with effect of snactions. This is as dumb as chiding the Jets for not being able to win with Pete Carroll.

    With a Pac-12 schedule they would, but not with an SEC West schedule for sure.

    I remember watching a segment on Alabama and specifically how Saban runs his team like a Marine Drill Instructor runs his recruit platoon. They had one of the Alabama players show how, when he got to campus, and got to the football locker room, he was instructed on how to EXACTLY store his socks, his cleats, his jersey, his pads, etc. It wasn't just - hey this is your locker, just throw your junk in there until you need to get it for practice- it was, your cleats MUST be stowed in the back, right-hand corner. Your jersey MUST be hung on the right side of the hangar, with your name facing to the left. Your pads MUST be hung on this particular peg, and when you put them on, MUST be put on in this order.

    It's this fanatical attention to detail which probably speaks to the intense preparation that Alabama players are accustomed to and where new recruits to the program are imbued with the high level of expectations when they come to Tuscaloosa. Even if you were All-World at whatever high school team you came from (and let's face it - almost all D1 football scholarship athletes were "The Man" on every organized sports team they've been on since they were 7 years old) - here at Alabama- you ain't shit until you've worked your tail off and have proven, via Supreme effort on the practice field, that you're worthy of representing Alabama football on the field.

    Sheesh, the fact that Devonta Smith went out with injury and there was no drop-off in Alabama's offensive effectiveness shows how ridiculously deep their team is.
