What a game with Tennessee and Alabama! Go Volunteers!

Can't stand Saban.

What a catch by Stocker.


Edit: Game over. What can you say... Terrible kicker, but good plays by Terrance Cody.

OTC with all due respect you do a great job with the prospect lists and your analysis is usually spot on but I am an Alabama fan. My friend you saw the probable 2009 BCS National Champs in Alabama led today by hopefully the 49ers future noseguard in Mount Cody. We all know you don't like Nick Saban you have mentioned that ad nauseum. You may not even like the CRIMSON TIDE and thats your prerogative but you might as well learn to love it cause it's the best going today...... RTR

Quick notes:

I really like what I'm seeing from QB Max Hall (BYU). The guy has an exceptional deep throw. Simply throws a pretty pass. As for Jerry Hughes, the guy seems to get in on every play. I've noticed they've started doubling him. I like what I see, he's having a fine game.

And the Texas game -- McCoy and Shipley, no surprises there. Both are playing well.

Other notes from earlier games: Spiller had a spectacular game; Jacoby Ford and Ricky Sapp both had great games as well. Chris Chancellor played poorly, and was blown by multiple times.

I actually don't mind Alabama by itself, I've just never liked Saban and have a hard time not rooting against the team he coaches as a result. Plus, I've always kind of liked Tennessee. Close game. Tennessee had every opportunity to win, but Alabama played better.

I really hope Cody can prepare and condition himself for the NFL. He really needs to do that if he's going to be successful.

Don't know if Alabama will be national champions, but whatever that match-up figures to be, I'm sure it will be an interesting one.

Yeah, Chancellor got toasted on that one long TD in particular.

How about my boy Deandre McDaniel, though? The kid is a playmaker in the secondary. He had 2 INTs today including a pick 6.

Spiller is just a freak of nature. Our QB actually missed him wide open down the sideline for what would have been another 60 yard TD.

Eric Decker got shut down against Ohio State because of the poor play of Weber and rotating him and Gray out there at QB. Blame goes towards a porous O-line, but bad day for Decker.

Oh and because he got hurt.

Yep. He's like Arnaz Battle, except 10x more production.

He takes a beating cuz he's our (U of MN) only real weapon on offense.

Yeah, I saw that. It was a huge "Oh my goodness.." moment; can't believe they missed on that one. Both Spiller and McDaniel played outstanding today. Spiller (KR and Rec. TDs), Sapp (FF that Clemson recovered and I believe I saw him in on a sack), and McDaniel (2 INTs, 1 TD) were the stars of the game today.

Jerry Hughes also had a fantastic day against #16 BYU today. Consistently put pressure on Hall, hitting him multiple times, sacking him once and causing a fumble that TCU recovered. He did this early in the 4th -- this tells me his motor was still running late in the game. That kind of endurance is what you look for in seeking a great future NFL player.

Quick notes: While Sapp does have speed, I don't think he's what we're looking for here in a pass-rusher. He often can't hold up or disengage when locked onto by linemen and will often times either get pancaked or stonewalled. Not a 3-4 linebacker fit.

The three guys who I don't see that happening to?

#1 -- Brandon Graham. I never see him getting stonewalled. They guy virtually never gets pushed back. I constantly see push from his side. Either he gets through with a nice little move or he just overpowers his man.

#2 -- Jerry Hughes. Tackles seem to have a very difficult time getting and/or keeping their hands on him. He doesn't just have a nice size-speed combo -- He has the production to go along with it.

#3 -- Eric Norwood. (See description for #2).

Winning battles at the line of scrimmage is what the great defenses do. Going after guys like Sapp who cannot consistently beat the blocks of linemen -- a big 3-4 backer's responsibility -- will help neither our pass-rush nor our rushing defense (specifically, short yardage). Drafting someone who adds little value to our defense as a whole obviously would not make sense.

I'd still draft him

I think he would excel as a number 2 or slot guy

I'd love to draft him as well, but bang for buck, I'd love to snag Jacoby Ford in the 2nd.

How are is WR abilities?
