Alabama-La.Monroe 3 things, mini grades

first_img Coker needs some help Jake Coker came in as the full-time quarterback for the first time all season. He definitely struggled, but he also threw three touchdowns. When he did make the right decision, and make an accurate pass, five of his passes ended up being dropped. Getting after it The most impressive part of Alabama’s defensive performance was the pass rush. The Crimson Tide had just five sacks in the first three games but recorded six against Louisiana-Monroe. The best part about that, all of the sacks came when Alabama was just rushing four. That’s a good sign heading into an SEC matchup at Georgia next week. Back on track After starting the season 0-for-4, kicker Adam Griffith has hit his last three field goals. That should give Alabama and coach Nick Saban some more confidence if it comes down to a kick at the end against the Bulldogs. MINI GRADES Rushing offense — C: In a game you’d expect guys such as Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake to dominate, the Alabama run game was just so-so. Henry ran for a touchdown, extending his streak to nine games. As a team, the Crimson Tide averaged 3.9 yards per carry. This team needs explosive runs to take pressure off the passing attack.Rushing defense — A: It’s hard to do any better than Alabama did at stopping the run. ULM went into the half with minus-9 rushing yards. Talk about dominating in the trenches.Passing offense — D: It looked like quarterback Jake Coker made some progress in the loss to Ole Miss, but he took a step back Saturday. Coker threw another interception. That’s four in four games. His deep ball is no threat. He stared down receivers. He forced passes into tight coverage. A couple drops mixed in. Not a good day.Passing defense — A: The Crimson Tide flew to the ball in pass coverage and had a consistent pass rush for the first time all season. Alabama had more sacks (six) in this game than it had in the previous three games (five). The Tide also came up with two interceptions.Special teams — B: Adam Griffith actually made some field goals. So that’s cool. JK Scott had a punt that went just 18 yards. That’s not cool. Overall, just so-so.Coaching —C: Alabama underperformed on offense, again. The issues have been the same all season, and the coaches haven’t changed anything. If running is the strength of the team, and the quarterback has struggled, why is Alabama averaging 40.5 pass attempts per game? Doesn’t make sense.Overall —C: The defense saves the grade. Even against an undermanned opponent, you’d expect a couple of miscues. But Alabama was all over everything and pitched the shutout. The offense was horrible, managing just 14 first-half points. The run never got established. The passing was streaky. Just ugly on that side of the ball. Alabama quarterback Jake Coker throws under pressure against Louisiana-Monroe at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Saturday.Alabama quarterback Jake Coker throws under pressure against Louisiana-Monroe at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Saturday. 3 things worth talking about last_img read more

Part of me says “if something isn’t broke, why **** with it?” and another says, “there’s nothing wrong with new.” I really just don’t know where to stand.I like hockey jerseys the way they are. I don’t want tight, spandexy crap. Who gives a ****? There is really no performance enhancement, whatsoever. Need everyone be reminded of the Olympics and the non-swift jersey wearing Swedes. “Enhancement” or not, better teams still win.I also don’t like the idea of shutting down the third jersey program (but at least that says it WILL be back.) I could care less if a team has 2, 3 or 30 jerseys. Hell, I like variety.

But this swift jersey thing really has me terrified. I suppose if you look at a NFL lineman or receiver now compared to 10 years ago you’d see almost as much of a difference, but that trend happened gradually, and still wouldn’t look as silly as it will on the ice. These uniforms are SUPPOSED to be baggy. And there isn’t a fan alive that would look good in one of those form-fitting things. I could live with this swift jersey thing if they did one thing–Had each team get their own designers for the jerseys. Instead they are all going to look the same because it is cheaper and easier.And sorry, but one of the things hockey has going for it is the colorful jerseys that people like to buy. When the swift jerseys come out, a lot of people won’t want them–particularly those carrying a few extra pounds. All Activity This topic is now closed to further replies.

They can only sell so many of the same old Canadiens, Blackhawks, etc jerseys. Sure they make money off the teams who have newer 3rds, but a league rehaul would really bring in the cash.

And they said it couldn’t be done!Interesting consequence of this change, if it’s true: Anaheim and Buffalo will have to re-vamp their uniforms – again – after wearing their new duds for one season. So if you’re a Ducks or Sabres fan, you might find yourself buying a new jersey in ’06, a new jersey in ’07, and a new third jersey in ’08. Now I see what Reebok’s up to… 553 posts Members 1 Share this post Location:New Jersey 542 0 542 Posted August 31, 2006 So I found this on the SabresFans message board, sounds like he found it somewhere on the Blackhawks website:Saw this posted somewhere: (blackhawks)Thanks for input regarding our third jersey. We will be staying with our current third jersey for the 2006-07 season. The NHL has notified the teams that they will suspend the third jersey program for the 2007-08 season. We have discussed several options for the our third jersey when the NHL resumes the third jersey program for the 2008-09 season, and have not yet finalized our strategy. Once again, thanks for your input and we look forward to seeing you at the United Center this season.Sounds to me like this will be the last year for regular, old school hockey jerseys. It could be the only reason why they would get rid of the 3rd jerseys, to go to the Reebok Swift Jersesy style.Sad news for hockey purists, but i guess we’ll wait and see…This also brings into question the vintage program – – The Sabres are gonna wear the vintage as their third, but all of buffalo will be pissed if they go only with the slug.And finally, the only upside: Could they be going back to White at home, colors on the road? 2 Location:Waxahachie, Texas Link to post Share on other sites 7 542 I’d like to chime in with my thoughts on these swift jerseys for a second.First off … the thought that they will look futuristic and spandexy i don’t think is accurate. If anything … i believe that seeing the players on the ice in these things will only harken back to a more traditional “Jacques Plante” era. And personally, i love that idea … this will actually have a fairly large impact on the sport i think … by widening the gap between speed/skill players and big/tough players. the middle ground will not be as prevelant … just my thought on that.As for the ‘template’ argument … i don’t think this will even be a consideration. I think the NHL knows all too well that their fans are not interested in losing their tradition … the jerseys will all remain exactly the same .. and each team will have liberty to design their jersey as they see fit … some might redesign their stuff though to consider the fact that their ‘canvas’ has changed in form, so they may have new designs to better compliment that. Traditional teams will not be making silly changes at all though.Lastly .. the tight fitting jerseys will most likely be tight fitting on players wearing pads … not on your average human wearing skin. they won’t be as poncho-esque as jerseys now … but they will not be form fitting or spandex.This is all my own speculation, and I have really no hands on evidence to prove or disprove any of this .. so take it as you will … just my thoughts.
