You’re comparing tua to Jeremy Johnson?
I can’t tell if you are joking, high, or just dumb.
You're a real genius.
Did your mom tell you that you were in "special" classes when you were a kid?
I am far from a genius my friend. I’m just not dumb enough to think there is any correlation between Jeremy Johnson and TUA.

Remember when most everyone on this sub was ready to give up on diggs?
I never gave up on him!! DIGGGS GOT THAT PEDIGREEEEE
Cornbreads time to shine.
Alabama still weighing options on offensive line, but starting five may be set
Alabama Experiments With Offensive Linemen
We all know they are just trying to figure a way to get cornbread on the field.
Wow this was out of nowhere. No one knew he was announcing today til I saw some random tweet on my timeline saying it would be on Fox5 Atlanta's facebook live feed at 9:50am. Good get though Vols he's a good DB and y'all seem to have taken the lead for Jaydon Hill too
He is an Alabama legacy if I remember correctly. Hoping this confirms the DAX hill to Bama chatter I’ve been hearing.
Bama and Michigan are both super confident in Dax. Probably just means he's going to OSU.
Michigan is always super confidant. I don’t know why, but they are.
We are gonna find out after Calvin is pushing for Rookie of the year. That we had the best WR core in football in back to back years and couldn’t capitalize.
Him saying that Diggs and McKinney have been playing well is big for our secondary.
Sounds like Najee is gonna be ok
Saban being optimistic about special teams being a strength? Don’t jinx us nick!
On another note had a conversation with an old player while I was shooting pool at coppertop the other night. He says that we don’t have another Lewis, but all three of the new freshman will be able to contribute if need be at OLB.
Saban stopped just short of naming Diggs and McKinney starters with the rest of the secondary being a work in progress. This is the exact opposite of what I would have guessed.
I think that’s a really good sign. I know Thompson and carter are gonna play at a high level. This means we are really trying to figure out of the best combo is savion st corner and carter at star or carter at corner and mayden or surtain at star.
No matter what I think this secondary is gonna be way better out the gate than what most national pundits are thinking or hoping.
So Cam Sims showed up last night. I think all three of his catches were in traffic. He also had a really impressive catch that was called back. Good for him.
I have had the shittiest luck with cars this week. On my third rental.
I feel really bad for him. Played with a guy that couldn’t get him the ball for two years. Could have been a mid round draft pick and got paid.
If Jalen was QB for the ‘09/‘12 championship games, we win them still. Maybe ‘11. But he’s had 2 chances to win against elite, current top teams and hasn’t. I will say, we should’ve beat Clemson. Jalen shouldn’t carry all of that blame, Sark should have a big share. Jalen was simply doing those play calls. At the same time, even one or two more completed passes, and we win it.
CFB has changed a lot in a couple years. It’s part of why Saban is so great - he’s been able to change with it. Trent Richardson was amazing but I’d take Damien over him for this season (hypothetically) simply because Damien is more versatile. Similarly, you cannot have a run-first QB right now. There’s too much film against even weak opponents that show Hurts missing easy reads. And the same film is there against UGA. You simply cannot be missing those easy TDS against a team like that.
Could we win a championship with Hurts? Maybe. But with an offense that includes Ridley, Howard, Harris, Scarborough (for half the game), and a fairly solid O line, backed up by the greatest college defense ever can’t win a championship....well, there’s only one on-field position to improve.
Trent Richardson would have gone down in history as the greatest back to ever play the game had he been the feature back in a lane kiffin offense.
Allegedly you didn’t touch the young lady?
I don’t think my unpopular opinion went over well. I only read a little of the response.
What unpopular opinion?
That’s a scary human being.
Got time to play on Reddit, but can’t pick your damn phone up?
It's too easy in here lately
I love that people are downvoting you. Can tell it’s the new kids on the block that haven’t been on the sub long haha.
Go look at the sleuthing from the wallpaper thread trying to figure out if I was a secret Georgia fan
That is epic.
Edit: just looked at it. Amazing stuff.
Just happy to not see Tua on this list.
I’m here for the TUA is overrated comments.
Lot of times it is because of lack of NFL success.
Geno Smith put up monster numbers
Tajh Boyd. Followed by an all-time great at QB doesn't help
The correct and only answer is our savior Jake Coker. 14-0 as a starter and a national champion. That boy was country as hell and had a bazooka for an arm.
Not sure if I agree, but I sure loved watching Jake play. He used to scare the hell out of me when he would lower his shoulder and truck people rather than sliding to avoid a tackle.
Because he is a boss. Dude would have gone back to back if he would have had one more year of eligibility.
good thing we’re as deep as the Titanic at RB
We said the same thing About linebacker last year
Everybody knows it’s Tua’s job
I came here for the TUA is overrated comments.
Worked out with Jake Coker just fine.
Jake Coker told saban to essentially fuck off and go to hell. That’s why he was benched.
In his defense. After how he played in the Wisconsin game he should have been named the starter and been receiving 80% of all reps with the ones.
Yeah idk man. Why else would he not?
Because tua threw like 6 picks in iron bowl eeek practice.
I could easily see putting in Mac for garbage time this year. If Tua has obviously won the job, keep Hurts out for all but 4 games to preserve two years of eligibility at another school. After all he's done, that's the least we can do for him.
Mac should be our number two based on the sole fact he is a better quarterback. He can make the throws. I don’t need a running quarterback. I got 4 NFL RBS on my bench. If I want to run the got damn ball I’m gonna run the got damn ball with one of my guys that is gonna make millions doing it for a living.
...like I said, our O-line last year was inconsistent and Coach Hand is gone. I have much more confidence in Coach Grimes to solidify the O-line.
And I hardly expect them to be the worst in the SEC ... that's laughable.
They will be in the bottom half. Most people think y’all will sit between that 8-10 range as far as O-lines in the SEC go.
Let’s be realistic here. The offense might open up, but we will still be a run first offense. More passing sure but it isn’t like we are suddenly going to go full air raid offense
I’ve said it countless times in the roll tide subreddit.
He is a deshaun Watson kinda talent being asked to be AJ macaron.
I’m here for the TUA is overrated comments.
Another reason why WSJ blows Forbes outta the water
Both are fake news. That’s like being the smartest kid in remedial math.
It's just a scrimmage, of course; but man, there's some exciting stuff.
Leatherwood appears to be entrenched at RT, which isn't a huge surprise. Deonte "Cornbread" Brown is apparently making a push at RG, though (/u/google-me2), which would certainly be interesting.
Kedrick James caught two touchdowns. If a man that big can be a serious threat in the passing game, hooo boy.
It's nice to see Surtain making some plays despite giving up a couple to Jeudy. It'll be interesting to see how Diggs, Smith, Carter, Surtain fill out the spots. We've got three spots for the four.
Eyabae Anoma lookin' good. I think he's gonna be hard to keep off the field in passing situations.
I'd love for Johnny Dwight to take a big step forward for this year and be a big rotational guy.
The summer luncheon I went to that had locksley speak said cornbread and Brian Robinson are two names that could have breakout years.
Brian Robinson has to be the most talented 3rd/4th string running back in the country. I'd love for him to get a decent amount of touches, but I don't know likely that is with the two Harrises plus Jacobs.
He would be the first or second best back in any other conference outside of the SEC. it’s pretty unreal.
Anotha one. This o line is going to be so good and massive in a couple years.
We're building a wall and USC is going to pay for it
If he translates all this recruiting momentum to wins he will play himself onto the short list to replace saban. I know DABO is number one then James franklin will be #2. Cristobal could be a hell of a third candidate if he competes for the pac 12 title year in and year out.
I cant wait till Brett slaps down her bank statements like its a blue eyes white dragon card
