    Ah. I love to watch Alabama. But here's a thing about that team... The QB is always the management system and nothing more.

    The team is super loaded, if they ever got a QB worthy of an early pick, the team would walk directly over all the competition even more so then they normally do.

    They constantly have the best O line, and top RB recruits. But they have to run it so much that it also strangles the offense.

    I agree and from what I have seen they seem like the patriots of college football where it is the system. Matt Cassell did well in new england because of the system but outside of it, not so much. It makes you think if you put AJ on another team, how well he would do.

    Yea. I'm not saying Mccaron is just pure crap, but he's basically a day three pickup and a spot starter.

    McCaron will go in the first 2 rounds. Kid is more gifted physically than the more recent Bama QB's.

    McCarron is the best QB Bama has had in a while (which doesn't say much but still). He may end up going in the 2nd round, more likely the 3rd-4th. Has the size, accurate in the short/intermediate game, football smarts, has won in big moments/games, and his deep ball is improving but still needs work. He really needs to work on his footwork, it has killed him when he throws a deep ball this year but I think a good coach can fix that.

    I believe the latest he will go is in the 2nd. Very well could go in the 1st

    If Vols lose today, Butch's first season is a real disappointment.

    I think so too.

    I feel like he lost this team. Maybe not the young guys but it feels like Dooley's juniors and seniors maybe reverted back to that old pre - Butch mentality.

    Some real weak personalities on this squad. You see the article about the team just straight skipping conditioning and workouts under Dooley?

    That is the type of players and culture Butch had waiting here on him.

    North Carolina with 80 points in the 3rd quarter. Could this be the first time I have seen a 100 point game in my lifetime??? Hmmm

    Buckle up for this Texas A&M and LSU game, because this will be a good game.
