If our homecoming game against Mizzou is an 11am game, I'm done with this season.

Fortunately, I hope whoever picks that game is understanding of that.

Missouri plays a pretty bad SC team so they should be 4-1 coming into the contest.

Georgia-LSU is already a lock for 2:30 on CBS so I would be baffled if they put us vs Missouri at 11 and not 6 or god forbid 8:15. There's too many compelling storylines (Like ESPN manufacturing a QB Draft battle between Drew Lock and Tua) for them to toss that on the 11 slot.

I didn’t realize that the Crimson Tide had a radio affiliate in Hawaii until Eli Gold mentioned that this Saturday’s pregame show starts at 3AM Hawaii Time.

Stumbled across this old video. This analysis gets better with every passing day. Man, how these two a$$ clowns still have a job is amazing.

Theres a real chance that in 20-30 years we look back and realize the dynasty didnt even truly START until 2015 if we win another one this year and especially in 2019..

The Kelly Bryant situation has me rethinking the redshirt rule.. like Nick Saban said recently, it becomes a slippery slope when a guy loses his starting job in the middle of the season and immediately pouts and transfers while previously having no intention of doing so. I know I bashed Jalen previously, but his conduct over the last few weeks has proven my criticism of him earlier flat out wrong, and he has been admirable in this whole situation and I hope we can keep him on board.

With that said, Kelly Bryant shows the weakness of the rule. He had an opportunity the first 4 games of the year, got outplayed fair and square and was named backup for this weekend. Within HOURS, he jumped ship and apparently bashed Dabo saying that he didnt do anything to deserve losing the starting job and how it's unfair to him to not be the starter. Now Clemson has a true freshman at QB and he's their only scholarship QB.

I would be fully in support of an amendment to the rule stating only true freshmen can play in 4 games and redshirt. Letting upperclassmen do it once they lose their starting spot a whole 3rd of the way through the season is just turning CFB into free agency where star players can bounce around wherever with no penalty like Kelly Bryant.

Just give all players 5 years of eligibility and be done with it

Welp, doesn't really matter what happens the rest of the season, Penn State has already wrapped up the worst play-call of 2018

That was atrocious and shows why James Franklin will never be more than a 9-3 or 10-2 coach. Always chokes on the big stage.

His seat may be heating up right now and for good reason.

Alabama-Missouri will be a night kickoff at 6.

Enjoy it because we may be hard-pressed to find another night kickoff from BDS this year except for maybe Mississippi State.

Auburn’s season is probably done after tonight’s game against Mississippi State. The Tigers poor offense finally caught up with them. Meanwhile, LSU lost in the Swamp today.

Gus Malzhan is the most overrated coach in CFB by far. He lucked into 2013 and 2017 and he's VERY mediocre without the flukes that gifted him good positions in those two seasons.
