Actually, we were pretty bad on special teams when he was here. Our kick coverage was pretty terrible and he made punters punt rugby style.

UABs net punt ranked between 10th-50th when he was spec teams coach. How is that bad again? How does rugby punting make it bad? That's like saying running the spread offense is bad. U make no sense

Touche on the punting, I just don't like it. See if you can find kick coverage stats, cuz I can't find nothing on that. I just recall it being terrible.

RE: Tyson Summers
Coverage stats weren't that good not horrible either but we didn't have the #'s then nor the quality plus they played more the bench warmers rather that the best athletes/starters that happens now.

With Jordan Howard in our backfield I wouldn't care if we didn't throw a pass all season.

You can still run the spread (Auburn) without throwing the ball all over the place.

True. I just like the thought of two tight ends and a fullback coming at you leading the way for #7. Not sure what he ran in high school but I'm sure he'd thrive in any scheme.

I concur with this guy. We just need to find some tight ends that can block besides backman at times.

I always thought Pickren was a scrappy guy that wouldn't mind getting dirty and knockin heads with some DEs. Not quite sure who our fullback would be next year. Maybe Neal grey?

IIRC I think that was the plan for NG but that was McGee's maybe not whoever replaces him

Speaking just for myself, I'd like to see Pickren moved back to DE. He was a real wrecking ball in high school, in arguably the toughest region in the state.

Its easy to have an aggressive defense when you have an offense like Oregon or Auburn...

Check that. What I'd REALLY like is for him to quit being jerked around and allowed to settle into one position.

Yes! Steve's a good guy and could compliment Backman well. What are our other options at te/fb/h-back?
