    Dunn is in over his head

    In 2018 Alabama spent $2,344,057 on football recruiting, we spent $715,492. Source: Recruiting Budgets for 2018. Interesting that ohio state was #20. Does increasing the budget allow you to take more chances on higher rated players? You probably don't if you are tosu, and you probably do if you...

    How do we fix the bowls?

    Yup, no matter how you slice it, 128 D1 teams cannot have NFL talent. If you increase the scholarships then the Alabamas of the world will be even more loaded. They will probably send more players to the transfer portal as well. Second tier schools may get Alabama's 2nd 5star QB as they go into...

    How do we fix the bowls?

    REALLY???? Sure looks like an 8 team playoff to me.

    How do we fix the bowls?

    Nothing is going to be done with the bowls till the whole Name-Image-Likeness issue is resolved. The only thing that MIGHT change before then is adding 4 teams to the playoffs, as more people are speaking up for it. It will be interesting the next couple of years to see how the TV contracts work...

    How do we fix the bowls?

    Doesn't matter. Your pairings are still wrong. With 8 teams #1 would not play #4 in the first round.

    Big XII Coach Rankings

    Based on that argument, I would say he's a better coach than Riley.

    Big XII Coach Rankings

    Ya, but Gundy looks like he plays in a band. Patterson looks like a roadie.

    Any way we could get Tom Herman as OC?

    I suppose you want to hire Wickline too. Damn sock accounts.

    How do we fix the bowls?

    Ummm, with 8 teams #1 (Alabama) does not play #3 (Okla State) nor does #2 (LSU) play #4 (Stanford). 1 vs 8 2 vs 7 3 vs 6 4 vs 5

    Any way we could get Tom Herman as OC?

    I'm still somewhat curious as to how he got hired at a FBS school in the first place, given his performance at his previous 3 Big 12 schools.

    OSU and the Big 12 vs Power 5 Conferences Data

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Any way we could get Tom Herman as OC?

    I don't think winning means what you think it means. Herman is a complete ass douche. Pissed off his players, his coaches, the administration, donors, cheated on his wife, and most of all, cannot coach at or above his recruiting class ranking. Anyone thinking Herman is a good fit at OSU needs to...

    Bundage and Rodriguez, "Meet me at the quarterback"!

    Cheese—It Bowl vs Miami 12/29 @4/30 pm

    In summer practice Illingworth was QB2. He missed 10 days of practice due to contact tracing. During that time he was moved to QB3. Illingworth is a true freshman and only participated in summer practice. He almost didn't even suit up for the Tulsa game due to missing 10 days of practice. STOP...

    How will this help Jenkins? He's not playing either.

    National Signing Day Tecmo Bowl

    Everyone is wrapped up in the Gundy/HC thread, though that horse has been beat to a bloody lump of goo. 8-bit graphics were terrible back in the day, and they're still effing terrible. If the players think it's cool, then go for it. Besides NSD was over almost as fast as it started. There is a...

    Coaching Carousel

    Because the money isn't coming from the state. One or more Big Money Donors have enough money they can spare to buyout a coach they dislike. Who are they going to hire that has beat Alabama more than Malzahn (3) has? The only coach that's come close is Freeze (2).

    Coaching Carousel

    I find it interesting that the buyout at Texas was in the $20 million range and at Auburn just Malzahn was $21 million, not counting coaches, so another 2-3 million? Texas has more money than Auburn and they pulled the trigger. We'll see if Freeze or whoever they get can do any better. I'm not...
