Pulling your starting QB with a 25-2 record, and replacing him with a true freshman with better passing skills, who goes on to overcome a double digit deficit in one half to win the National Championship... sheer genius and giant huevos.

I have waited until today to say the following, but it is now time:

Nick Saban is the greatest college football coach in my lifetime. He just surpassed Bear Bryant in that category.

That is all.

Tua-whatever-his-name-is will almost certainly start from now on. That puts Hurts out of a job. Maybe we can get him to transfer to Auburn. Almost all of our QB's are transfers from other programs nowadays.

On that note, the same goes for UGA's Eason, who has Fromm ahead of him and incoming 5 star recruit Justin Fields.

We'll gladly take either one.

Eason is going to Washington. Wouldn't surprise me to see Hurts at Texas.

Hurts is such a good runner, Alabama should run a 2 QB offense. Toss the ball back and forth rugby style and either get an open receiver of run it. It would work...

I don't think he leaves Bama
I like the stinky pinky but only up to the first knuckle, I do not want a GD thumb up there--I've told her multiple times and I always catch her when she tries to pull a fast one---it's my butthole for Chrissakes I'm gonna know--so cut out the BS.

Probably so. The loss of income would be tough on him.

Unless he goes to Texas, as AA suggested. With all that oil money, they probably have a higher pay scale that even Bama.

I read where Texas was likely.

I would kill to have him at UNC, but, alas, we're stuck waiting on a ten win season once every ten to twenty years...

Sounds like UNC football is a lot like Auburn basketball. It’s what you do to pass the time during the off season.

Correct. Just like the SEC keeps Kentucky around only to give us at least one respectable basketball program, and so that SEC east football teams have at least one easy win every season.

The SEC also keeps Vandy around to give us at least one academically respectable school, and to give SEC east teams at least one easy win every season.

SEC East teams need a lot of help to keep up with the West.

No doubt Kentucky suffers some bad losses most years, but my impression is that they also hang in there pretty well in plenty of game, too. That's cold comfort for their fans - a loss is still a loss - but I've never thought of UK as being an automatic slaughter game for the powerhouses of the SEC. My impression is that if UK was in the ACC, they would regularly be in the upper tier. Maybe not on the level with Clemson and FSU, but certainly in the top 4 or so most years...

that may be the best thing that Stoops has going for him - its not often we get blanked by an opponent

but we still celebrate signing 3 star guys and jucos - As long as we are in the SEC -that's probably how its going to stay.

"but we still celebrate signing 3 star guys and jucos "

Same with UNC. The difference is, as we saw the past few years (before this past year), you can build an ACC powerhouse with those types of players. Not a given by any means, but those types of guys, if they're the right guys and everything else comes together, can give you a season or two of competing for a conference title in the ACC. But then they graduate and you go 3-9 with the crop of freshman and sophomore 3 star players you're left with...

That’s why UNC has basketball.

I am saddened to see my adopted favorite basketball team is rated so low. That is exceedingly rare.

I am also saddened to see my adopted favorite basketball team rated this far below our biggest rival, Dook (which Dooksucks once eloquently called “that NAMBLA chapter in Durham.”) I knew they would be good when they signed a player from my old high school, Wendell Carter. I watched him play last year, and he was an absolute beast. I knew he would help somebody win a lot of games, even as a freshman.
