    UAB_DAWG got a reaction from 95Dawg in December 2019 Recruiting Thread   
    I agree with this. There were so many times this year our line was able to stand guys up at point of contact but there were no running lanes for the backs. Very frustrating. More athletic lineman also opens up guards to pull, screens and tosses. 
     
    as much as I love Pittman his idea of an Oline is an immovable wall. That comes with benefits and consequences.

    UAB_DAWG got a reaction from Porter Osborne Jr in Coaching Carousel   
    Staples didn’t cite a specific source or even go as far as saying he was offered the position. I feel like if there was a meeting Bobo would have kept quiet about it out of respect for Kirby and we know Kirby keeps leaks to a minimum so it sounds like speculation to me. 

    Maybe Kirby offered and maybe he didn’t. Either way it doesn’t matter and Bobo is at South Carolina. 
     
    I’m not sure why Carvell wrote and article about someone else’s article. There was nothing of substance there either. Smells like click bait to me.

    It’s one thing to ask who may leave and how it will affect the team. It’s another to first assume guys leaving are making lateral moves and then talk about how that reflects poorly on Kirby.

    So you're playing the what if game before anything has even happened? Good job Mr. Hot take. I'm glad you got that out there early so you can point back to it IF something does happen along those lines.
     
    Our fans aren't even ready to handle a successful program. If this is what things look like every time we lose a coach to a promotion we are in for a long ride.

    This is a very good point that I hadn’t considered. We need Fromm to get things worked out this offseason because that’s as wide open as the SEC has been in years.

    This team can win with Coley as OC next year. He’s shown enough for me to feel comfortable saying that. To get better we need to address what’s going on with Fromm and we need to improve the running game. 
     
    Whatever is going on with Fromm is affecting his entire game. He’s got some mental demons that are affecting his mechanics and decision making that have to be corrected. I’ve been saying for weeks I hope we bring a qb guy on staff to help him. An off-season with the WRs should help.
    We have to get better in the run game as well. Fromm deserves a lot of criticism for this year but the run game wasn’t helping him out. I know teams were stacking the box but there’s been tons of one dimensional offenses that continue to have success running the ball. Alabama won championships this way.  If Fromm can’t prove to be a threat to run from shotgun we need to get back to running from under center.

    Hiring a co-OC/QB coach would go a long way to helping. Get Fromm sorted and have someone help Coley gameplan and make adjustments.

    My apologies if anyone has already pointed this out, but posting increasingly inflammatory and unrealistic things is pretty much straight out of the Internet troll playbook. Just ignore him and let him go work out whatever is wrong in his life somewhere else while we have an actual discussion here.

    I think a huge part of the problem is this team has no real playmakers on offense or defense outside of swift. And he hasn’t been much of one this year. There’s plenty of potential guys freshman who can be those guys next year but it almost feels stifles those types of players instead of letting them make plays. Because we definitely recruit them.

    I would love to read an article one day about how Kirby picked up his phone and called Bobo right after the game and said come back. Whatever you want.

    UAB_DAWG got a reaction from Carter in What if this scenario happens Saturday?   
    Sounds like a participation trophy to me. Those teams have a shot to upset the big dogs in the regular season now and if they win, they have a shot to get into the playoff. Do you honestly think any G5 team can make a run through a 24 team playoff field? I don't.
     
    The NFL is a bad analogy. The league is made up of 32 team with minor talent disparity and everybody is playing a comparable schedule. College football is over 100 teams with significant talent disparities and schedules that are not even comparable.

    So you want winners of participation trophies to get playoff bids? On one hand you’re saying that conference championships are meaningless but we should use those games to determine who gets to the playoff? Do you not see the failed logic here?
    In the real world, Conference championships are already part of the playoff. It’s basically a play in game. Is anybody that loses this weekend going to the playoff? I don’t think so. Why would you use a conference championship to determine seeding for the best two conference teams and then put both those teams who just played each other in the same playoff?

    If we’re giving bids to the top two teams from each power 5 that’s 10 teams and 6 wild cards. How do you determine wild cards? Surely not with a computer or poll, right? 
    And for the record, I’m in favor of 6 teams. I can’t remember the last time there were more than 6 teams deserving a playoff shot. Frankly there’s usually 3 maybe 4 teams a year that are good enough to win it all.
