Alabama Football Podcast: Quarterbacks and Running Backs

In this episode Tom and Dave discuss Alabama’s quarterbacks and running backs as fall camp hits full stride, including what we are hearing, seeing, and projecting into the 2014 season.

Highlights of our discussion include:

Coker still starts, right?  No new news here but we update our stance based on what we we’re seeing – and not seeing – so far from camp.

Why will more QBs play this season?  In some respects we’ve dug our own hole at the QB position, and it’s been good fortune in the way of a transferring Jake Coker that is bailing us out. How will we change our ways to reduce a similar risk in the future?

Who is this T.J. Yeldon?  Is this guy the most underrated star in all of college football? We think so and explain why.

What is Kenyan Drake’s role?  We think Saban dropped a hint as to how he plans to capitalize on Drake’s unique talent and skillset. We also discuss a camp photo that so perfectly personifies The Drake!

More Derrick Henry please!  Has a player ever had the collective Alabama fan base clamoring for more like Derrick Henry? Without question he’s electric and we look forward to seeing him contribute more this season.
