Bama's RB's next year

15 posts in this topic

Bama will have 3 RB's next year that were all the #1 RB out of HS......Damian Harris, B.J. Emmons and next year with Najee

Bo Scarbrough was the #1 athlete out of HS

and my favorite, the least heralded out of HS, Josh Jacobs

To me Jacobs looks the most promising I swear he did some Matrix shit on one of those runs against Auburn.

This is what we call "rich people's problems"

What is truly bizarre is Alabama plays freshmen when they've signed the top recruiting class for the last 7 years.

Holy Cow, Batman!

I just did some math..............if you take out the Ole Miss game where we only won by 5 and the LSU game where we only won by 10, we won by an avg of 32 points every game.

 

amazing

Can't decide who I like more. Harris has the best vision of any of the RBs, reminds me of Ingram a lot. Jacobs has the elusiveness, 1st guy hardly ever tackles him. Bo's coming out party came against Auburn, and he reminded me of Henry a little. That's not including Emmons who was the best of the bunch coming out of HS. 

And we get Najee?

Someone's transferring out this offseason or the next. There's just no way we keep them all.

if you understand the difference between a mean vs an average, kinda that sort of thinking

those are the two games we won by the least points..........just shooting the shit otherwise

if I'm Saban, heres my pitch to a RB..........."at alabama, you will have much fewer reps meaning less wear & tear and a less of a likliehood that an injury will keep you out of the league, WHILE getting much more publicity than any other joint you go to, PLUS you get the benefit of a doubt by NFL teams because of your pedigree".

 

also, gotta admit, Im surprised at Bo...........I thought he was gonna be similar to Henry in running style, but apparently he is just a battering ram, not much lateral

EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID....

Average life of an NFL runningback is 5 seasons.  The body can only take so much abuse.   In the perfect world, a team needs 4 RBs averaging 10 carries a game.  Especially since spread teams average 90 plays a game, they need to balance the pass/rush ratio just to not be one dimensional.

      Gamecocks defeat Charleston Southern 7-0.  18 K's in the game for SC pitchers.

      I have a safe but many are out in the open or on my workbench. My little girl knows what they are and what they can do. I teach that they are tools not toys. She wouldn't play with a saw so why would she play with a shotgun? Sh has used both as they were intended and seen that using them correctly makes more sense than using them incorrectly. I don't want to shoot anyone. I don't want anyone to break in. I don't want crime. But reality is my small town has a gang problem. Ignoring it isn't a responsible answer, neither is Next years approach of talking with them over coffe and finding out what drives them to lash out like this. I honestly don't care why they are threatening me and mine, I just want to be able to stop them.

        You wouldn't recognize Columbia County anymore. It has blown up with refugees from Augusta. It went from a suitcase community with open spaces to a living/working destination metropolitan region. Clarks hill has developments on it but little to no residential development. Washington road is being made into a 4 lane highway all the way to the lake. And it's accent has come at the expense of the consolidated Augusta/Richmond county. That place is trying to revitalize but falling poorly at it.  It seems like every few months something new is coming to Columbia county making it better. The only issue they are having now is roads. Grovetown didn't plan for the expansion so they need a total rebuild of it road system. It's not just Military and Mexican anymore. 300,000.00 houses fill subdivisions as fast as they can clear land to build them. Applying and Harlem are the only parts of Columbia county not exploding and Harlem is about to as Grovetown is getting too expensive for folks now.  And now is the best time for the area. With Masters week coming up the clean up and finish up is in full swing.
