Roddy White’s Alma Mater bro!  I hear they have a decent team man so keep the faith. The Dawgs are for real bud!  Nothing to be ashamed of considering how well that run D looked.  We’re talking huge difference in recruiting here buddy.  Lots of these men will be pros.  

Oh, I know that. I watched every one of Roddy's games at UAB. Been going to them for many years. Most dominating player I saw play for UAB was Bryan Thomas. They play at least one SEC team every year, sometimes two. They beat LSU when Roddy was there. beat Miss. St. just a couple of years ago. Took Florida to a last second field goal a few years back and although not SEC Nebraska beat them by 1 once. They get a lot of SEC transfers and JUCO guys so they're not all shmo's as Roddy and about another 10 or so high quality NFL players would attest. Jordan Howard being one. When the program shut down he ended up at Indiana but he was a 3 year UAB starter.  Here's a list: (Not sure why JJ Nelson is Highlighted here.)

Hold my beer…

 

I’m a die hard Falcon fan AND Georgia Tech alum.  You were saying?

Went to Tech also. Baseball scholarship. Suffered serious knee injury and eventually left school and joined the military. Way back in the day before reconstructive surgeries were a thing. Between Tech and the service however I had a cup of coffee with the Padres in Yuma at rookie camp in the mid 70's as the #2 at SS behind a skinny kid with a big afro named Ozzie Smith before my knee blew up and I got a ticket home. At least I tried.

Great information to digest man, thanks for sharing.  When I see your passion for your team it makes me happy.  That’s the way it should be.  I so wish our team would come back to the days where all of us us can be proud.  The MR era will close, an unfortunate failure of our org to put a team good enough to compete around him in place.  Lord knows it happened frequently around the league.  
But ultimately a new day will dawn & I still like our staff & trust that they’ll overcome!

Meantime, we’ll persevere my brother!  Go Falcs, go UAB!

I’ll give you a like for everything except capitalizing tech. Tuck Fech

Ryan definitely looked his age this past Sunday..also, I'm concerned either Ryan hasn't learned our offense or perhaps he's not able to run it..and I'll give him we had some oline issues..but supposedly we have one lineman really weak..its not like we don't have 3 first round picks on the line..no way one bad LG threw a wrench in the entire scheme..if that's the case, the problem comes back onto coaching more than the oline..and I'm still hanging on the fact our entire oline looks weak..whatever training program they are on needs a complete revamp..our entire oline and dline look pedestrian..none of these guys look as if they've been in a weight room or a conditioning program since stepping foot in Atlanta..imo, whoever is responsible for our players conditioning needs a ticket out of Atlanta tonight..****, bring in one of these guys competing in the strongest man competitions on ESPN to get these guys in shape..

When was Cleveland known as Choke-lanta? And how exactly did that work?

Browns and the Bills looked good Sunday..and to top it off..Gruden actually has the Raiders looking like a football team again..I'm not sure we'd beat the Texans right now lead by Tyrod Taylor..would u put money on that game ?

I'm just trying to figure out when Cleveland was known as Choke-lanta.

Doesn't matter how you look.

They have the same record as the Falcons. 0-1

You are assuming that the Falcons would make the same exact same mistakes over and over and those other teams would not .
