Got a feeling Yeldon may make a statement this year
Agree. People that think Fowler is nothing but a battering ram have not watched him or know nothing about football. he has good running instincts, hits the hole quickly and is extremely fast for someone as big as he is. Reminds me of Ricky Moore only faster. He's an NFL back waiting to happen similar to that huge RB for the Giants. Not a good vid here but he outruns the secondary. Tired or not thats fast enough.
Look at Alabama's 3rd string running back Jalston Fowler running it hard into the endzone. ALABAMA will be the BCS champs again this year.Check out my blogs: http://manthy.hubpages.com

lol at people getting mad that their favorite player is getting left out. We just have so many good players that it's impossible to predict who will have an impact. Great times folks, great times.
I like your optimism but yikes on #2 and #3. We haven't had 5 returns for a touchdown in the past 5 years combined and we only had 1 WR catch more than 30 receptions last year (Maze at 57) the second and third leading receivers were Smelly and Richardson...Hanks only had 26 receptions. So to think a true freshman can catch 30 for 5 tds is far fetched. There's nothing wrong with having those expectations but the only problem is (not saying you will do this) we as fans have unrealistic expectations for a lot of players (especially TF) and when the player doesn't live up to those expectations we start asking what's the matter with the player and then it turns into rumors about the player not being dedicated or in trouble when in reality the player wasn't ready to contribute when we thought they should.
- Barrett Jones wins all American honors
- Cyrus has a solid year
- Nico and CJ have a great year
- J. Williams wins AA honors
- square has a great year
- fanning and Dial do a very solid job of filling in
- Vinne has a great year
- Landon Collins sees significantly more time as the season progresses
- not one true freshman WR sees significant playing time
- if healthy and not timid (because of knee) Hart becomes #2 RB
- if he stays healthy Lacey has a GREAT year
- Depriest, Haha, Dickson play significant roles
- Hubbard has a really good year.

It's all in fun with me.. Do I really think we will have all that? Nah.. But would like to see it happen.. I think it's possible, but maybe not too probable.. I have high expectations for every player that steps on campus at Alabama.. As long as they dedicate themselves and put in the effort, they will be greatly improved from when they first arrived.. And seeing how good our guys are when they arrive just makes it that much more exciting
Highly unlikely that not one tf wr doesn't see the field. We still aren't that stacked with experience at wr. & it's one of the easiest spots for young player's to earn reps outta hs.

True, but look at Woodson and Shin. They red shirted....
Not saying one won't see the field but I would be willing to bet that none make a significant contribution =15-20 catches on the season.
Eddie Williams IMO.
Bump for answer.
How is his cutting ability since the injury?
Yes... because we had two seniors that returned last year. & White/Bell/& tf Jones locked up spots in the rotation in Spring. No reason to burn Woodson/Shinn rs last year. This year not as much returning contribution+several quality wr's enrolling for the Spring=at least one of them in gonna contribute in some sense. I'd say Amari Cooper is a wild card in the race.
I'm sure he will turn out to be a great athlete but how much WR did he play in HS?
If you think that Fowler should be over Dee Hart then you need some serious help lol just kidding.
but seriously IMO there is a huge difference in Talent between the two and if Hart wouldn't have gotten hurt last year he would have been our #3 guy. Fowler will be a good situational back (ie: Goal Line or 10-yard line...or 3rd and very short) something like that but to say he should have more carries than hart is absurd IMO there is just to much of a talent difference.
