    Lewis has a torn ACL, that sucks.

    That other guy was already in trouble for academics or something, I guess just kept fucking up and it was the final straw.

    I guess it's a good thing we reload, and that the season hasn't started yet...

    At least now we can throw someone else in there and get them some good playing time


    I hate that for Lewis. Guy is a true athlete outside. He'll more than likely go pro after this season and just get ready for the combine. He's had 2 seasons ruined by injuries now.

    I don't think there is a summer camp. Usually the players do their own thing and also have workouts with Cochran. Like I saw where Tua and Jalen were both at the Elite 11 deal.

    Not sure on the exact date, but fall camp should be starting somewhere around the 1st of August IIRC. Usually get about 4 weeks of practice before the season starts.

    Camp starts tomorrow!! Can't wait to hear Saban chew out the first reporter to ask who the starting QB will be

    Hurts is tweeting he isn’t happy how the QB situation has been handled and that none of the coaches talked to him about it this spring. Not the type of statement that Saban appreciates I’m guessing he is gone pretty soon.

    I like Hurts & understand his frustrations but I would have rather he kept it in the field house. Having said that, aloha bitches .

    I can't blame him. Technically, he hasn't said a word about what he wants to do or thinks will happen. People have just been making assumptions and trying to do it for him. I can see and feel the disrespect.

    Think about it. All he's done is bring us to 2 national title games and go 26-2, while being a class act and playing his heart out for the University. I'd be annoyed too. I know the coach speak is to "stay focused" but the guy still goes to school. He has people probably ask him on campus whenever they see him "Hey Jalen, are you staying at Bama this season? Are you starting? Where would you transfer if you had a chance somewhere else?"

    I love the guy personally and I wish him the best, no matter what. If he doesn't win the job, it's not out of the question that we could use him as a Wildcat QB, especially in the redzone.

    And who knows? Maybe Jalen won't look as impressive passing, but he could have a 6-0 TD/INT ratio in 3 scrimmages while Tua could have a 9-3 ratio with a pick six too. Saban, while he makes adjustments wen necessary, still prefers the QB who can manage the offense down the field without giving the ball away to the other team.

    Regardless of what happens, I wish him and Tua the best. We couldn't be luckier to have the 2 QBs that we have right now. Either one can win, and either could get us a national title.

    stolen from the rant about today's scrimmage. I trust the source.

    QBs- Tua is really good, and it’s not really that close at this point. I don’t want to talk bad about Jalen but he had 3 picks and if it was a prize it would have been stopped early Tua had 4 touchdowns a great run, a sack juke miss type thing, it was borderline unbelievable. I’m not sure how Desean Watson or Cam looked when they were this age but we may have something brewing in the Legend category. I’ll go on record now and say All 1 team reps should be shifted to Tua and he should start again LV game 1.

    OL- looked pretty good actually, I didn’t see a glaring issue

    DL- solid crew here, buggs, Kwon, Jennings Williams etc all look good

    ILB- same solid starting two, depth may be an issue

    Secondary- can tell they are a little raw but they are a scrappy bunch and great speed. I feel fine here

    WR- Top are 5 are outstanding as you already knew, Juedy, Ruggs, Smith are elite

    TE- didn’t see any real issues here, seem pretty steady

    Kicker/Punter- Delong isn’t JK but he kicks the ball well and is consistent

    Bul looked pretty good

    Damn, hope Tua is as good as hyped. Secondary is already young so it needs a good pass rush to help it out.

    We gonna go all Oklahoma and shit before long.
