If Black is
2) close to Coopers talent
3) begs u to let him
Do u burn his RS? I know Coach Saban doesn't want to. But would you?
If he's cooper good he's only here 3 yrs anyway.
Negative, he needs 3 full years on the field before he leaves...and you still have 2 other WRs that are more than capable if AJ would throw the ball to them every once in awhile.
3) C. Jones
5) Cy Jones
It's tempting. I really hope Shinn and Cyrus step up
heck no! More than anything we just need a WR to fill in for blocking. We still have our 3 top guys out there. We should be fine. Shinn and Cyrus Jones are nice fill-ins as 4th and 5th Wrs.
Not sure that's correct.
I'm not worried about the other guys. Just that if 1 more receiver goes dwn. Even with severe cramps..who's our 5th WR?
While I'm here, how exactly did bell injure his leg?
Got rolled up on from the side while blocking downfield
Reasoning is that if he was able to go then he would get 2 games this year and if he's good enough, would leave after his junior year after having played only 28-30 games....I want Black available for all 42 games for the three years. He was just as good pre-injury as Cooper.
Re: The 5th WR, that would be Shinn or Cyrus Jones
If CNS thinks burning his redshirt will help us win the SECCG and/or the BCSNC, he will burn it in a heartbeat.
BTW, what happened to Woodson?
With Black never having played in a college game, no way he pulls it for two games unless we are down to the bare minimum on WRs and we are nowhere near that.
What worries me is the rotation and the fact that were down to one jr and 4 freshmen. Those three starters cant play every snap. Were also one hit away from having Mcalister in the rotation. No doubting were in a jam. Hopefully we can run over UGA and this doesnt become a problem. But it does worry me the amount of rs and true freshmen we have playing all over the field now. If we can win it all with this group we can win it every year. Were also gonna be nasty as hell two years from now.

Actually, Norwood is a jr, Ch Jones is a soph and the 3 freshmen have now been involved in 12 ball games so even though they are listed as freshmen, this isn't their first game where they don't know the speed of the game or what is is expected of them when they hit the field. I would look at working Bradley Sylve at WR this week since he worked there in the spring before he moved to DB. Also, Jabriel Washington knows the position also.
If Black does redshirt this year, he will be able to leave after is redshirt sophomore year. He doesn't have to have 3 years of playing just 3 years removed from high school.
About the least of my concern. Don't really see guys his size being top picks
It's a mute point. Chris said that he's not cleared for contact in the pregame thread when someone mentioned Woodson not be dressed then someone posted paging Chris Black.

It would take probably two more injuries. Chris Jones stepped it up yesterday and it was good to see. Norwood performs on the big stage so rest assured he shows up. If we need a forth guy it's Shinn or a RB...honestly, think about it...fewer weapons wide means we have to focus on establishing and maintaining the running game.

No. I call and offensive line meeting and say "men, we're gonna get back to being who we've always been and we're going to smash Georgia in the face. YOU will be the personality of our football team. Now get yourselves ready to do some road grading."
I just see this as an opportunity to reclaim our Bama personality.
These are the moments older guys like Shinn & Woodson need the light to come on. These guys got passed by tf. & they've been in the system longer. We don't just need depth. We need "quality" depth imo.

I'm sorry if this info is elsewhere, because I haven't had a chance to read too much coverage from yesterday yet. But my knee jerk reaction was maybe Woodson didn't dress out so that a walk-on senior could.
Considering that Black has yet to be cleared for contact, it is unlikely he will be by next weekend. Unless we have multiple additional injuries next week, I don't see us having to use him against ND.
Guys, let's not forget that Georgia has lost their top 2 receivers for the season. It could be worse.
Mute point? It's a moot point.
We need to throw to our tight ends again. It is almost like they have become a forgotten part of the offense this year.
I'd throw to Norwood every time if Amari is double covered and they play a single man on Norwood.
Cyrus Jones is the guy who has to step up. I think he will do fine.
And Yeldon on a screen pass is just as good.
