    Certain things are inevitable. Like Chumps roster is once again hit with an inordinate amount of injuries. Nick Saban snaps at reporters after a disappointing 56-7 victory. An FSU player beats up his baby-mamma. The chat box is a cornacopia of positivity on game day. Anything else?

    The cosmos will line up at some point and on 3rd and Grantham we get that crucial stop.

      Tide’s depth taking a hit: Alabama tight end Kedrick James enters NCAA transfer portal

      • [​IMG] Michael Wayne Bratton
        7 mins ago



      One of the thinnest position groups on Alabama’s roster could soon be taking another hit as tight end Kedrick James has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

      This news comes after James was suspended for Alabama’s two Playoff contests against Oklahoma and Clemson. James appeared in five games last season and 10 total games for the Crimson Tide in his career, coming off the bench for each of those contests.

      The first to report the news of James’ decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal was Matt Zenitz of AL.com.

      Losing James could hurt the Tide more than some realize as Nick Saban has mentioned this offseason that his program would be open to potentially adding tight end depth to the roster via transfer. Alabama has not added a graduate transfer tight end following those comments.

      It should be noted that entering the NCAA transfer portal does not guarantee that James will leave the Alabama program, he still has the option of returning to the team for the upcoming season. However, entering the transfer portal is the first step toward leaving the program and allows other programs to contact him regarding a transfer.

      James was in play to potentially start at tight end for Alabama this season. The Waco, Texas native was a four-star member of Alabama’s 2017 signing class.

        On that note I predict we only give up 27 points or more in 4 games in 2019 instead of 5 games like in 2018.

          I think we end up winning 2-3 games by less than 3 pts

              Urban's name will come up in every coaching search discussion even if it's 0% chance he takes whatever job is being discussed.

                Kirby gets outcoached by a coach who has inferior talent. I’m thinking two of Texas A&M, Auburn, or Florida get Georgia this year.

                  Franks is our #2 rusher, at least.

                    On 3rd & 12, Central Michigan will gain 6 yards on a play action crossing route.

                      But mostly sacks.

                      Because the dumbest thing you can do on a blitz down when everyone is coming with a head of steam is run a play action that no one believes and a slow developing pass route.

                          I was told "to sit this one out" when I dared to criticize that gawdawful hire bc I didnt recognize true offensive genius when I saw it.

                            Franks will improve on his numbers from last year, which just looking at them on paper were pretty good, and along with a great combine will convince some idiot GM to take him in the first round.

                              I predict Anheuser Busch sales will increase sharply around the end of August.

                                  People who never go to any games will whine about bad attendance figures.

                                              The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles.
