I thought we needed a central location to collect all of the rumors that I'm gonna start.   So if you have one better then log it here.

1.  Alabama has just activated the gray shirt freshman OL Brad Bozeman.  Which means that Christobal believes Bozeman is ready to play OR the offense line seriously lacks depth.

Depth at QB and on the O-line are probably our Achilles heel. If we lose a premier player at either of those spots (AJ, Cyrus, Steen, etc)...we're going to have to rely on somebody significantly less seasoned/experienced. Heard Phil Savage remark about that on the radio the other day. Interesting that they're giving Bozeman a shot, but as you said...might be necessary more than anything.

He'll beast at TE if he can catch the balls.

The scholly opened up because Darius Paige is medically DQ-ed as you may know by now.

Heard on the radio it'll be for 5 practices just to experiment.

Not much info out there but I'm hoping it isn't Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy or his heart in general. It's normally the Heart or Spine that cause players to get medically disqualified.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is no joke. Enlarged heart and most common killer of umdiagnosed athletes. They literally will just drop dead. Where have you heard this?

With the addition of Robert Foster today WR is the deepest position at Alabama.  Last week, it was the 11 LB rotation.  On NSD it was RB....

So much for SKILL position.  It doesn't mean shit if offensive line can't pick up a stunting LB blitz.... or the noseguard can't block a kick while double teamed.

I haven't heard anything just speculation.

Hopefully it isn't to serious and he can find somewhere that will clear him like Jarvis Jones.

It's now or never for Jalston Fowler and Tana Patrick and I expect those boys to surprise everyone with breakout performances.

So who are you watching?

Def watching Nudie...Hes gonna hurt some poor LB
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

Fowler's been working with the H backs some. He would make one hell of a FB/H back imo. Plus that means more carries for Henry

I am confused by the sudden experiment of LaMichael Fanning at TE.   Is this a desperate attempt to find a role for Fanning or is Brian Volger on the hot seat?
