Word on the street

I thought we needed a central location to collect all of the rumors that I'm gonna start. So if you have one better then log it here.

1. Alabama has just activated the gray shirt freshman OL Brad Bozeman. Which means that Christobal believes Bozeman is ready to play OR the offense line seriously lacks depth.

Depth at QB and on the O-line are probably our Achilles heel. If we lose a premier player at either of those spots (AJ, Cyrus, Steen, etc)...we're going to have to rely on somebody significantly less seasoned/experienced. Heard Phil Savage remark about that on the radio the other day. Interesting that they're giving Bozeman a shot, but as you said...might be necessary more than anything.

He'll beast at TE if he can catch the balls.

The scholly opened up because Darius Paige is medically DQ-ed as you may know by now.

Not much info out there but I'm hoping it isn't Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy or his heart in general. It's normally the Heart or Spine that cause players to get medically disqualified.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is no joke. Enlarged heart and most common killer of umdiagnosed athletes. They literally will just drop dead. Where have you heard this?

With the addition of Robert Foster today WR is the deepest position at Alabama. Last week, it was the 11 LB rotation. On NSD it was RB....

So much for SKILL position. It doesn't mean s--t if offensive line can't pick up a stunting LB blitz.... or the noseguard can't block a kick while double teamed.

I haven't heard anything just speculation.

Hopefully it isn't to serious and he can find somewhere that will clear him like Jarvis Jones.

It's now or never for Jalston Fowler and Tana Patrick and I expect those boys to surprise everyone with breakout performances.

So who are you watching?

Fowler's been working with the H backs some. He would make one hell of a FB/H back imo. Plus that means more carries for Henry

I am confused by the sudden experiment of LaMichael Fanning at TE. Is this a desperate attempt to find a role for Fanning or is Brian Volger on the hot seat?

Welcome to another ongoing episode of Rich Man Problems...

How many WR can Alabama play at once?

Let me list the WR names for you. Amari Cooper, Kevin Norwood, DeAndrew White, Kenny Bell, Christion Jones, and now freshman Robert Foster..... and what about scatback Dee Hart.

I've got $50 that says Nussmeier introduces the spread to the Capstone.

You're forgetting OJ Howard and Raheem Falkins who benefited having spring ball over Foster. AJ loves Falkins too, guy can catch any ball thrown his way. We def have depth at WR

As far as Fanning at TE, I think Saban wants him on the field, 6'7 270lb athlete. He's only supposed to be at TE for 5 practices, so we'll see after that.

They have the players to spread it out and throw for 60 minutes. It would be about like NS to give some of these teams a dose of their own medicne.

I think you mean Howard instead of Bell haha.

It's already gonna be a battle to see who starts. You have Cooper who will def start at one spot, then you have Norwood, Christion Jones, Kenny Bell, Deandrew White fighting for the other 2 starting spots. And from what I've been hearing White's been tearing it up at practice. So without any incoming freshmen there's already 5 good options. Throw in OJ Howard, Falkins, and Robert Foster, our second string WRs are gonna be better than most teams' starters.

Shotgun, 5 wideouts & OJ Howard....or Fowler in motion. West Coast Offense for the first series of the seccond half.

If I was OC I would never be able to decide what to run based on the abundance of top performing personnel.

What's scary is you forgot Chris Black. I've never seen our WR talent this deep before...ever.

For the next series of Rich Man's Problems... let's discuss Alabama's linebackers.

Alabama returns 11 players with experience.... that doesn't leave much room for incoming freshman, Reuben Foster.

Discuss....

The list of WRs continues to grow. So far it's Chris Black, Amari Cooper, Kevin Norwood, DeAndrew White, Kenny Bell, Christion Jones, and now freshman Robert Foster, Raheem Falkins, ArDarius Stewart.

The spread is definitely on this game plan...

      LSU is the only Power 5 team in a state with a tiny population compared to Texas.  LSU and Bama made out like bandits by bringing in A&M.  And to show how autonomous LSU is, wasn't their recent change decided at ULL game?   Houston?  A serious multi-year threat?  With their pack 45,000 seat stadium and limited funds?   They flash every few decades. They won't keep TH that long.   tu?  Can't compete with the SEC brand.  TCU and Baylor?  Self-destruct at least once per 20 years.

      I stopped watching it 28 minutes before it started.

      They will always play second fiddle to Texas.  And they are likely about to share their metropolitan area with a new Power 5 team in Houston that has the hottest coach in the country.   Both have all the money and resources they could ever hope for.  A coach isn't going to ask for something and not receive it at either.  But LSU is the only player in their state and they have autonomy.  That's the tie breaker in my opinion.

      TAMU is in  a bigger state with more folks and more folks with deeper pockets if for no other reason than sheer population alone.
