    My vanilla opinion without reading all the explanations is pretty simple. I'm disappointed . The simple facts are that we can match Alabama in most areas of the game. They have a huge advantage in a couple of areas.

    Clearly their QB and receivers are elite. Not to throw Bennett under the bus, he's a feel good story but he is not elite and I don't think his ceiling is high enough to get there. Our receivers are good but also aren't elite, of course it takes an elite QB to maximize their ability.

    I can't help but wonder what's going on with Pickens and Bennett, they just don't seem to have the chemistry. Seems like we're always a piece or two away from being complete.

    Our QB room is a mess IMO, every year there seems to be a debate. There's no denying the talent is there but with all that talent we still haven't been able to put an elite QB on the field. We've had Eason, Fromm, Fields, Newman, and Daniel brought in, Beck and Mathis in the wings, now another five star coming in, Vandagriff.

    It's hard to summarize the performance last night, hopefully we get another crack at them down the road. It happed with Auburn several years ago, maybe Bennett can make me eat my words. I hope so!

    the idea of having multiple QB's is that when one is hurt or struggling the other can come in and pick up the team. Where are our highly touted QB's. Might have been an op for them to play a series or so and let IV regain his composure

    Accolades to the Dawgs for playing hard but it did that after the second interception that got a little demoralized, You can not throw into double and triple teaming without a risk and it bit us.

    Hoping for brighter days ahead

    Bennett will have is hands is full. With that Kentucky defense.

    If the pass down the sideline hits Burton anywhere near in-stride, it’s a touchdown. Although it was a completion, it was woefully underthrown, something Bennett seems to do on most deep balls, even if they are completed.

    Bennett may be the best QB on the team. Then again, Kirby thought Mathis was the best QB on the team to start in Arkansas.

    I’m hoping to see what JT Daniels has to offer.

    MobileDawg, if we play them again, it won’t be with Bennett as QB. We won’t win out with him as QB. Why bring in an experienced QB as a transfer if you’re not gonna play him? I know he has an injury issue, but he has been “cleared” so what is the problem?

    And the worst part of the story is rs junior another year of eligibility. And we all know how loyal kirby is to the qb

    And the way Kirby is talking about Bennett I don't see a change at QB coming even though we have a bye week this week.

    Let's not forget the misses on the wide open receivers in the endzone on consecutive plays. We got lucky to have an open man the third time. I guess I would have to say that was great play calling for that to even happen three times in a row but he missed badly on the first 2.

    I agree with what someone else said on another thread, we have 5 star quarterbacks sitting there watching while a kid, a really good kid who works really hard, gets the start. I watched Rudy. Great movie but he only got on the field when the team stepped up to step down in the last game of the season when it was already decided. Heart doesn't win the big game.

    Does anyone realize that this was only Mac Jones SEVENTH START?

    The Bulldogs entered having allowed 236 yards a game. The Crimson Tide had 564. Steve Sarkisian’s unit rolled up a whopping 33 first downs on 76 plays—basically, a rate of a first down every other play. His quarterback, Mac Jones, in his seventh start, now has the same amount of 400-yard passing games as Tua Tagovailoa had in his career (three).
