Gotta give Pat a 6-year extension now.
If it makes you feel better I am rooting for the Vikings tomorrow.
The funniest thing to me is that for the rest of time, whenever anyone talks about this season, they will have to mention that Alabama won the national title, but they'll have to end that sentence with “...and UCF, which claimed a national title.”
I am going to continue banging the Garrett Taylor drum because I think he's a potential star and just had to get his feet under him this year because of his knee injury and position change.
I'm admittedly a little worried about the spine of the defense — namely DT and safety — and am intrigued by basically every linebacker spot other than the one Farmer occupies. But the talent at DE and cornerback is no joke, and even with the positions that I'm unsure about, there's talent there and they're being coached by guys who have done a lot with lesser-regarded players. A lot is going to happen between now and next season but I'm already feeling pretty good.
It's kind of hard to overstate how good this class of receivers is. Shorter has the potential to be the best receiver in America, Dotson is Mr. Reliable until the day he graduates, and George is the third-highest ranked receiver in this class despite the fact that he's still a four-star kid. It's insane. And that doesn't even include the tight ends, who are also really, really good pass catchers.
Unfortunately, Slade isn't among the six early enrollees, per Franklin's presser.
