Yea what Alabama has done will never be done again most likely.

Ohio State SHOULD have two more titles, but that's the thing.

Every time Alabama seems to have the best team, they win it. They rarely, if ever, have a year where they have the best team and blow it.

Ohio State blew it in 2015 (w/o question) with the best team and potentially blew it in 2019. Though I won't argue that one as vehemently. They should have beaten Clemson. I don't know if they'd have beaten LSU though.




We also blew it in '98 but that's a different discussion.

Saban is the GOAT. I don't like to admit it but it's the truth.

2015 is a maybe. They had championship level talent but it was a frustrating season before blowing it against MSU, who knows how they would've fared. After this year, I feel a little better about not facing that LSU team in 2019, cause I doubt we'd win that one and losing back to back title games is no fun...

2012 is the real lost title IMO. Admin could've done a self-imposed bowl ban, and that may have prevented the ban from the NCAA during Urban's opening undefeated season. If that happens, Bama gets iced out while we play a favorable matchup against ND.

Speaking of which, vacating wins is stupid and pointless, put 2010 back on the board.

Greg Mattison is officially retiring at the end of the month. Leaves a vacancy on the defensive staff.

Really sucks Marcus Freeman took the Notre Dame DC job already.
Coaches have left sooner. Manny Diaz left Temple after 2 weeks and he was the HC.

Really don't think Freeman fits the style of defense Day wants to run (single high safety; emphasis on C1/C3).

Hopefully the money-hungry stiffs at EA don't ruin this.

EA in 2014 and EA in 2021 are two different companies in terms of operation. They scrape by with the bare minimum and charge players out the ass to have a chance to compete in their ultimate team modes, because they know they can get away with it.

Madden 21 has been met with unheard of amounts of vitriol by the community and reviewers, so hopefully they start to wake up.

I look forward for gamers to be pissed when they move heaven and earth to recruit a 5 star, have him decommit on twitter, recommitt on NSD, then enter the transfer portal after his freshman year.

Knowing EA they will allow us to pay recruits to come to our school via micro transactions for a more "immersive experience."

Looks like Day will be making an in-house hire to fill Mattison's vacancy. Some roles will be shifting around. Guessing the defensive staff looks something like this:

DC - Kerry Coombs
AHC/DL - Larry Johnson
LB - Al Washington
Secondary - Matt Barnes

Special Teams - Parker Fleming

I just want to be able to actually pick my assistant coaches. Getting your oc and dc picked for you always bothered me.
