    Re: Samford Signees.......

    To go back over some questions in this thread, (if anybody really gives a rat's rear).

    My source for Hatcher being #51 player in the state comes from the bios of signees listed on the official site yesterday. You may email the SID if further info is needed.
    Bessemer Academy - We have one other player on our roster from BA. Mike Williams, 6-5, 277 was a 2**OL coming out in the 2016 class. He was a RS who was good enough this past season to start and to make the SoCon All-Freshman Team.
    Hodges and back-up - Not positive, but I'm pretty sure that our #2 guy was redshirted this past season. Georgia All-Stater Liam Welch will be VERY well known around the SoCon after Hodges is gone - believe it.

    Now back to, hopefully, better topics of discussion.

    Thanks - Good info - but...

    A) you didn't respond to my 'other offers' question. No worries, of course, if you don't know. Just a-wonderin'

    2) What better topics of discussion are there than Samford's Signees? I mean it CLEARLY deserved its own thread while the rest of the SoCon's lowly Signees were relegated to being posted in a SoCon 'Community' thread.

    C) Yeah - Welch was a 2-Star also and ranked as the 104th Pro-Style QB in the country by 247 (Samford's roster says 58th - I do wonder about the source - doubtful I'll call and ask though), 200th overall in GA, 8th best Pro-Style in GA. Welch also had offers from Mercer (before Riley, who was ranked 7th, Committed) & Liberty. The guys around him signed with Oklahoma, Louisiana-Lafayette, Arkansas St, and Texas A&M

    Re: Samford Signees.......

    In case you were wondering, here's what an AISA defense looks like.

    FU all the time.

    "It's not like we didn't know what was coming. We just couldn't stop them" -WCU head coach Kent Briggs

    "The game we know and love literally grew up in the Southern Conference. To find the foundation for ACC and SEC football, you have to go the league’s roots. To find an appreciation for a brand of football often-overlooked and seldom-appreciated, we as fans should do the same."

    Nice!!

    PRO - 6-2 - 200





    So...I'll go with "at least 9" as my answer to your question

    Which lopsided mop up situations would that be?...LOL not many of those these days the way we are managing games.

    Clay Hendrix was the complete opposite. He'd pull PJ Blazejowski at the earliest opportunity.

    Like Georgia, private schools in Alabama can play either in the independent association or the high school association. In my experience, AISA would be below the lowest high school classification in terms of depth and talent.

    Only 8 teams make the playoffs, so three wins gets you a state title. It's the same teams playing for a title every single season for years.

    Maybe the kid is an elite QB. I have no idea. I just have a hard time believing that a 5'9 QB off a tiny private school who plays against the weakest competition in the state is the 8th best HS QB in Alabama.
    And many of these schools are playing 8-man football...

    How about these 5 from 2017?...I attended the Georgia & Mercer games, and watched the El Cid game. All 3 WERE clearly decided before the 4th quarter. Obviously, from the scores (by quarter) alone, the VMI and ETSU games were as well. Despite that, no other QB 'managed' to throw a pass in 2017.

    Re: Samford Signees.......

    The only guess I can venture is that Samford does not really have a non-Hodges way of slowing the game down. The Bulldogs are not a good running team, so they will continue to throw it regardless of who is at QB. Hodges is probably the only guy they trust to run the clock and still complete enough passes to keep it moving.

    Furman, for instance, pulled PJ Blazejowski as soon as the game was in hand. The backup would hardly ever throw it or even pitch it out of the option. His job was to hand it off and not fumble. Samford isn't really built to do that.
    FU all the time.

    Wow...hope Samford signed #8, the CB from the blue team. That may have been the worst tackling effort I've ever seen.
