    OC Chip Long Press Conference

    Honestly, at UF and MSU, he had NFL talent on the D line. I think he knows he doesn't have that at GT right now. Maybe some of the young guys will end up being NFL caliber, but that is not a given. I doubt he thinks he can magically make the D a lot better, but honestly, it was so bad last year...

    Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    From article: From the second Williams entered the portal, USC became one of the frontrunners to land him. Former Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley, who gave the freshman quarterback a starting job in Norman, is now the leader of the Trojans’ program in Southern California. Newly-hired LSU...

    OC Chip Long Press Conference

    I sense a "chip on the shoulder" - no pun intended. That might be a good thing. I did see some of the same personality that I see with Key, though, and so far, he has been far from what I hoped he would be coaching our OL. We will see - I have some very muted hope.

    Should the Fire Geoff Collins thread be locked?

    I voted to "leave as is" - with that said, I would not lose any sleep over it being temporarily locked. I just don't think it will be long after the season starts until it will be needed again. I hope that is not true, but my logical side cannot see any other outcome.

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    No idea. But, I don't follow recruiting very closely, not even in the recruiting forums.

    Locker room issues?

    I refuse to give CGC this “excuse” for what he has rolled out week after week. Any of you looking for something to blame it on can, but I will not. The buck stops at our HC. To me, it sounds like the new “talking points”.

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    I think this would be a good get. And, yes, we were on his final list IIRC. Hope we are an option for him.

    Matt Rhule/Collins Connection

    Sure they do, if you mean guys who reward players for things. All of these teams have guys that will do some of the handshakes, let them drive cars, etc. But, now, with NIL, it will be above board. My only point is that previously, Saban had built such an NFL factory at Bama, he actually could...

    Matt Rhule/Collins Connection

    When Saban was traveling with Mal Moore to his introductory press conference in Tuscaloosa, he asked Mal, "You think you just got the best college coach in the country, don't you?" Not sure Mal's response, but Saban basically told Mal "you are not", but you are getting one of the best recruiters...

    Matt Rhule/Collins Connection

    I agree. Unlike Collins, I believe he really knows the Xs & Os. I could be wrong, but the NFL is not for all good college coaches.

    QB coach

    Weinke is fairly unproven as a QB coach. That is why he was available. I’m not saying he won’t be good, but his earlier stints have not shown anything above average.

    Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    Did not read all of this, but I think the NIL combined with portal creates the following at some point: 32 Team "super league" at the top, with the remaining 100 schools left to have their own championship playoff or whatever. I would assume there still can be crossover games for sure, but...

    IF THE UNTHINKABLE HAPPENS

    Nothing against the young man, but 80% of their fans make it untenable to root for UGAG. I don’t care if Gandhi was the QB. Bammer fans are very similar (I’m married to one), but their obnoxious behavior is backed up with decade after decade of NC’s.

    UNC just hired Former D coordinator Gene Chizik

    Well, I guess you missed my point. My point is a D coordinator who gives up 28 or less on avg. and gets off the field 50-60% of the time in today’s offense-based game is considered pretty successful. (For most teams). Their D this year was awful. Guess I should have said “a few more stops”...

    UNC just hired Former D coordinator Gene Chizik

    Somewhat related to the subject, if Bammer beats UGAG, it will be that their O is spectacular, not so much their D. Will their D need to get some stops? Sure, but they will live or die with the O. Today’s game is just different in that regard. To Saban’s credit, he came to this realization...
