Malzahn approves of NOW Boot Camp! Well...not really...but he would if he knew about it :) www.nowbootcamp.com.
Alabama delenda est.
WE COMING . WAR EAGLE !
The idea of Robinson putting on 10 to 15 pounds and being a fullback is the most likely idea to me. We are bringing in a lot of TE's which will be used to block, but make no mistake about it, if Gus is still around in the next year or two, you will see a LOT of throws to the TE. I look at what Cam is doin at Carolina with the TE's there and can't not help but think that is what Malzahn wants his passing attack to be - Send some deep, but always have a check down to the TE if need be.
As for people transferring, I don't think we should worry about that. Next year Yeldon and Robinson will be red shirted unless the fullback roll can be utilized immediately since Robinson is already 220! So that will leave us with 4 guys to rotate in and throw to out of the backfield. As much fun as these guys are going to have given opposing defenses fits, I don't think they'll go anywhere.
Here is the thing, we run a pro style run game. I know that is foreign to everybody who thinks "Malzahn = Spread," but it is true. Look at the Saints - They have 3 backs they rotate in constantly. Everybody else in the Pro's has at LEAST 2. Most college teams have one main person and rotate another person in very seldomnly. Well except for LSU and we all know how well they're doing this year. ;-)
