Too close to call. I don't watch the NFL so I am torn between Soccer (Football) and College (American) Football.

Yes Lawd!! One more month left till the start of the season! Number 17 is coming to T-town! 

@Eco we dodged a bullet, Najee Harris was ready to transfer when he went home to Cali this summer but his HS coach and Nick saban talked some since to him. Start Tua please!

O.o We are going for #18.....

Tua will start unless his injury is worse than suspected. Mac might even be the backup after Jalen's passing has literally gotten so bad it's embarrassing. 

I love when start the year with the UCS's, FSU's, and Michigan's, so starting with Louisville this year and Duke next year, they won't be quite as exciting.

I meant number 18 😂 if jalen doesn't start, he will transfer according to his dad.

 

The defensive line this year (like always) will be damn good 

The only massive weakness with us is our secondary. We got 5 f*in players drafted last year so it'll be all new.

You guys need to work on your pitching that Lebron guy isn't the same anymore he can't even throw the puck properly.

Ken Griffey Jr was the best thing happend to you guys what a great quaterback he was.

Huge news coming from Columbus, OH. Urban Meyer has been placed on Administrative Leave after reports are surfacing that his face knew about the assistant coaches hobby of beating the shit out of his wife. Listening to ESPN today, they interviewed Ex-Buckeye Joey Galloway who said something along the lines of, 'I'd be shocked if he survives this'. 

I'm not a Buckeye fan, and definitely not an Urban Meyer fan, but the wife and my in-laws are all for Columbus and there is definitely a sense of dread with this report coming out within a month and a half of the season starting. 

Buckeyes first game is in Columbus on September 1 against Oregon State Beavers

Amway Coaches Poll: Alabama in familiar spot at No. 1 in the preseason poll

 
USA TODAY
 

Alabama, the premier program in college football over the past decade, will begin the 2018 campaign in a familiar position at the top of the Amway Coaches Poll.

The Crimson Tide, fresh off their fifth national championship of coach Nick Saban’s tenure in Tuscaloosa, were voted No. 1 by 61 of the 65 Football Bowl Subdivision coaches on this season’s panel. Though Alabama didn’t quite go wire-to-wire at No. 1 a year ago, the Tide started at the top and got back to the top spot when it mattered.

This is third consecutive season Alabama has started at No. 1 and fifth time since 2010.

They’ve played in the College Football Playoff final in each of the last three years and are strong candidates to make it four in a row.

Other familiar names are expected to be Crimson Tide’s main challengers this fall. Clemson, the 2016 champion and a participant in the last three playoffs, will open at No. 2 in the poll. The Tigers received three first-place votes.

 

The final No. 1 nod went to Ohio State, which will open the season in the No. 3 spot. The status of coach Urban Meyer is uncertain as the school placed him on administrative leave while it is investigating his possible knowledge of alleged abuse by a former assistant.

The Buckeyes head a crowded field of Big Ten contenders, as the league placed five teams in the top 14 of the preseason rankings. 

The remaining two playoff participants from last year round out the preseason top five. Georgia, which fell to the Tide in the overtime thriller of a title game, opens at No. 4. The Tide and Bulldogs head a group of five SEC squads in the Top 25. The Big 12 also has five ranked members headed by No. 5 Oklahoma, though the next highest one is TCU at No. 16.

 

The other power conferences are well-represented in the poll as well. The ACC will begin with four members ranked headed by Clemson and No. 8 Miami (Fla.), and the Pac-12 features three top-25 schools led by No. 6 Washington.

That leaves just three spots for independents and Group of Five league members. No. 11 Notre Dame holds one of those positions. Mountain West favorite Boise State checks in at No. 22. No. 23 Central Florida, coming off an undefeated campaign with an American Athletic Conference title and a major bowl win, will have its first preseason ranking in the program’s short history.

Ha - gotcha. There are about 170 teams in college football so I just guessed the team with 'Green' in the name (Bowling Green).

From what I've read and heard on the radio talk shows, Jalen will start but Tua will end up being the starter, which I believe it's best for the team. Although Jalen promised saban he would stick around, if he chose to transfer, he could start for any school unlike Tua who would have to sit out a year. 

Will he have graduated? That's the only way a player doesn't have to sit out a year.

I really don't like watching left handed QB's ... maybe that's just me though

@Teso dos Bichos

That isn't a surprise. This happened last year during scrimmage where everyone was saying how much better of a passer Tua was over Jalen...but Jalen being the SEC offensive POY his FRESHMAN year was something Saban couldn't afford to bench. 

It's simple math to me, work to keep both, use Jalen on 3rd down and shorts, and put him in on our trick plays. Tua deserves to start because he gives us the best chance to win.

Tua Tagovailoa reportedly outperforms Jalen Hurts during Alabama’s first scrimmage

The Alabama quarterback competition may have a clear favorite soon. In fact, the Crimson Tide’s first scrimmage potentially already created one.

On Saturday, Tua Tagovailoa threw three touchdowns and had no interceptions while Jalen Hurts had three interceptions and accounted for no touchdowns, according to AL.com’s Matt Zenitz. Alabama doesn’t allow media to watch scrimmages, but reporters receive some information.

Tagovailoa’s first touchdown pass went to sophomore wide receiver Jerry Jeudy. He later threw touchdown passes to freshman wide receiver Tyrell Shavers and sophomore tight end Kedrick James.

Al.com

Also, watch out for Juedy. That kid can fly. @Teso dos Bichos, if you are bored and high as a kite, you need to watch some of his highlights from high school. UNREAL

Penn State avoid a massive upset. Texas loses again to Maryland to start off the year. 

And damn you Washington for blowing that lead against Auburn. 

Roll Tide.

That was easy. 

Bama wins the toss, gets the ball, Tua starts, and drives down for a TD pass without many issues.

My heart stopped beating when tua went down!! Vintage saban game!!even though the game was already over he still worried about silly mistakes. 

The offense was on point but can the young defence handle the brutal schedule of the SEC? The only games bama will be challenge will be that other team  from the plains and georgia (sec championship)

 

Hahahaha butch jones left Tenn in terrible shape, embarrassing L versus WV!! 

@Eco the U versus LSWho today, who you got?

 

I hope Miami pounds them. I hate LSU, and I respect Mark Richt. 

We could have scored 100 if Tua was able to keep the foot on the gas. He was unreal last night leading the offense and his first TD pass was sexy as hell. 

I was also worried when he went down for some time, however, he's clearly fine as he continue to make Louisville's Defense look like Swiss Cheese. 

Also great to see Jacobs do so well. 

Waddle was the Freshman of the game. Dude was amazing catching and returning kicks.

Oklahoma and Murray can have the fucking Heisman, Tua proved who the better QB was and that's why we heading to the ship yet again. 

Alabama 35 Clemson 28 

Murray is a hell of a QB. The thing that hurts Murray is that he has NO DEFENSE on his team. You exchange QB's and give us Murray and them Tua, and we win by more than 2 scores....Easily. 

Kudos to Murray as he is an incredible athlete. But I'm ready for Clemson (again).
