How the Bama deal went down

Who knows how true this is, but this is one version of the truth. Regardless, it's an entertaining read.

Awfully convenient that it completely flips the script from Mal Moore and his office being the Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight to being the most brilliant, steel-testicled, clever bunch of guys to have ever run a university athletic department.

I agree.

I think about 25% of it is true. It does make for great reading.

Agreed. Recent history (i.e. 6 coaches in 8 years, or whatever the number is now), suggests that Mal Moore needs a full-color diagram to get his pants on in the morning.

This "insider" was obviously not an English professor. Or, perhaps, my eyesight is digressing like the Alabama football team was under Shula.

And, according to this guy's football knowledge, I would suspect he doesn't work in any capacity with the football team. Or, maybe he does, and that is the problem.

It is my understanding that "zone blocking" in today's lexicon is used to describe run blocking more than pass blocking, meaning it has little to nothing to do with Brodie Croyle or John Parker Wilson getting smacked around a zillion times per game. Most teams use some sort of zone blocking scheme in pass protection.

Yellow in the front. Brown in the back. :)

My favorite part is how they "sabotaged" Rodriguez. I still think they'd be better off in the long term with Rich at the helm.

Not to get all legal (and reveal myself too much), but that poster has little or no understanding of what a promissory note is. Just one thing that jumped out at me.
