Alabama SEC Football Predictions for 2021

"Feel like discussions of national championship should be perfect segue when we looked to break down the defending champion from season ago and paint. I don't think it'll surprise anybody. When you look at alabama fan duel sportsbook there less than two to one to win the national title there an overwhelming favorite to come out of the sec west at minus four fifty. And when you look at their win total. It's eleven and a half shaded to the younger. Of course we know that the most electric offense that we've seen in tuscaloosa will not bring back a lot of their key. Playmakers nausea harris and of course devante smith taking their talents to the nfl combining for fifty five touchdowns last year. Mack jones get gone of course as well. But it's rare if you're a team in college football you bring in two former. Nfl head coaches and bill. O'brien and doug marrone to help pass the baton to the next heir-apparent embrace young under center. I don't know how much they're actually going to do. Or how much you actually want him to do. Listen nick listen. Nick and hope that they can keep players on the straight narrow that are collecting seven figure paydays at least on the books under an i l. arrangements compared to Bitcoin trust and everything else. They used to collect in the past the one thing with alabama that they've adhered to under this offensive. Change the last few years is that our offense is not changing. If you're coming into the sabin rehab program you're going to adapt to our offense or guys aren't constantly learning new systems and it seemed work but when i look at alabama's dominant they've been with nick. Sabin the only one back to back championships wants it. Feels like with his system. Continuity plays a large role. And that's something alabama's offense that you alluded to just doesn't have this season now. No one's feeling bad for alabama the way they were crew. But you're replacing. Six players drafted in the first twenty four picks five on offense and totally replacing three starters along the line to starting receivers a tight end and a quarterback and it's not just the players four offensive assistance. Four offense of analysts. They've all moved on. So alabama's offense is gonna regress. That is not a question. It's happening the real question for me. Is how large dip.

The door crisslow joining us on that story and others. Chris thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and give us the latest. How did how did how did this happen. So quickly with jeff long. It's great to be with you. Always i I really felt like we heard the news about less miles that this was just it was going to happen with jeff law and just did not senior way. He would survive. I think what happened in a lot of donors a kansas at the end of the day. The president a chance to learn. Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it. And i think jeff athletics look long enough to know he said in a statement. Today was going to be a huge distraction more hung around and and they wanna make a clean break. Bring somebody else in to hire the knicks head football coach. Oh by the way they got issues the basketball program. Well they certainly do. And i saw her. Danny manning announced that he was a contender for the ad job. But as we. I don't know whether tennessee is the template but you do need an athletic director to get in there. Fairly quickly don't you. Yeah you don't the what's your proverbial tail wagging the dog. So yeah you gotta bring somebody else somebody. And it's going to be the ad someone that's that's gonna be the football coaches boss. I tell you name to keep in mind. Travis goff and northwestern we went to kansas undergrad. There how highly respected and sort of in the world. And he's a guy that you're going to hear a lot of push for from donors from influential people there k you to bring in to come in higher this the next head football coach. I think a guy will be certainly equipped to deal with. What's going to come their way on the basketball front as well talking to crisslow chris. Let me just take a step back and go back in time time to lsu and unless miles and after this information dumped the other day and learning much more about what happened down there and what didn't happen. I'm curious as a reporter who has covered so many scandals in so many so many big stories in college football just your your takeaway from from the progression of that program with with joe alita and less miles to to really where it is now and where does it go to try to clean up a rather tattered reputation. Yeah you think back to two thousand eleven ten years ago paul. Lsu's on top of the world now. Granted they lost alabama national championship. But that was a great football team In in a team that was is elite as it gets and now here. We are ten years later and they won the championship last year. But a lot of things off the field. A lot of things going on you know you. You always felt like there at the end of his tenured. Lsu that there was a lot of people. They're out to get him. When i say out to get him that wanted to move on. I just felt like they could do better. But as you know you know the sec. As well as anybody yeses. He thinks they can do better. Except for maybe in tuscaloosa And i think the some of the political forces around lsu sorta helpless. We're on his side to leave. Certainly it and four games the sixteen season they got it in. You heard jimbo. Fisher's name all sorts of aim. Tom herman the end up with a lot of people felt like that was never going to work with all the old winter national championship last year and really a great job assembling people going out and getting staff around in but now here we are off the field with this complete invested in investigation. As some of the way things have been handled with sexual assault domestic incidents going back before was head coach So you're right. There's there's a lot on their at lsu Just like kansas.

Arkansas Head Coach, Eric Musselman, Discusses His Team's Success This Year

"Know there's a game coming up tomorrow but if we could just get some final thoughts on north we're violating the twenty four hour rule or not. But how does it feel to. I mean your fans are buzzing right. Now they've been excited all year but that really brought it home the other night. I mean the thing that that we're probably the most proud of paul is just the fact you know we got thumped tuscaloosa and we got beat before that at lsu When we were in bad rooch pretty pretty bad too and and We were able to bounce back between those two games. We had a really physical practice with weighted vests. And and you know. I'm not sure we had enough legs To play the fast place style of play that that obama plays and coach you know gets his guys really get out and run and and You know looking back. We knew that that practice would you know would would maybe set us back slightly but we're trying to think long term. We had a great environment. I mean we. You know i understand. It's a pandemic but we had a really good student section. Our crowd was good. There's there's there's been a lot of excitement over the last few weeks with the way that the team is played and and it was a big game. Th you know anytime you get a top ten cheap You know and you can you can you number one. You don't get a lot of opportunities to play top ten teams then when you do and you're able to to get a win. It is a big deal for the fans at former players boosters and and for the student athletes to reward them for for a lot of hard work but we have incredible respect coach oats and his team and we know that you know they're one of the top teams in the entire country so it was a big win. But you're right you gotta turn the page. And that's part of your team is having maturity when you do win a big game two to turn the page and get ready for your next game. I mean you're now final two days of february and and certainly you're going to be going through this now. You're going to be going through this in the sec tournament and ultimately in the nc double a. tournament for for a program that has not won a lot of big games lately. How drill that into their their minds. That this was fantastic. But it doesn't mean anything tomorrow. I mean i think you know all you can do. Really paul's just continue to talk. educate You know. I told him today that you know. I'm a lot older than them. I'm getting getting towards being an old man. And and sometimes you gotta listen to your elders a little bit on on some of these things that you talk about that you know the game you know tomorrow when we play l. s. u. the prior game against lsu doesn't matter and our pr- prior win against alabama doesn't matter there's forty minutes you've got to go out you got to be focused and You know it's. I think that that just kind of how it is and and You know the good thing is having gone through it nevada. You know none of those guys that we had there had really been through it either But i think the big thing is just understanding that each day. You've got to continue to get better. I mean even you know with with with three games to go now. We're talking about how we can get better. We're talking about improving our practice habits. We we do a to onto pick and roll defensive drill today that i'm sure they weren't really excited about doing a two onto pick and roll drill that might be. You would consider a training camp drill but we want to get better and anybody that aspires to play beyond college. Basketball should should want to become a better pick and roll defensive player so hopefully you know you can get your guys excited to understand that you know you're not just doing it for the lead these last three games and then tournament situations you're doing it for the longevity of your career as

Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground

"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

Alabama Could Be Home To Amazon's First Unionized Warehouse In The U.S.

"Amazons first unionized warehouse in America. That groundbreaking prospect is playing out in an unlikely place Alabama if workers from a facility near Birmingham vote to unionize next month. They would turn a new page not only for the company but also the region. MPR's Alina Cell yuk reports long before the warehouse was even built. Local officials called it a game changer. Amazon is coming to the funeral of government, the city of Bessemer, Alabama, Birmingham's working class suburb, a shadow of the steel and mining hub. It used to be. Amazon jobs paying over double the local minimum wage, promised a shot in the arm. Here's mayor kind of Cali talking about Amazon's arrival on Birmingham, CBS, 4200 and 30 Year. History of the city of Boston market is the largest single investment. But less than a year after the facility opened, it became a different kind of game changer. Amazons First American warehouse to get to a union election. Next month, 5800 workers of the best more warehouse will begin voting on whether to join the retail wholesale in department store union. Here's President Stuart Apple bound for things that is most important for them is to be treated with respect, he says. Best in more workers reached out to the union quietly in the summer, describing ruling productivity quotas wanting more say In how Amazon staff work how they get disciplined or fired a support system mobilized from unionized workers around the region, many from poultry plants Within months, the union says more than half of the warehouse workers signed cards to petition for unionization, leading the National Labor Relations Board to schedule an election. I believe that the pandemic opens a lot of people size, they understand now better than they ever did before. That they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. Jim spits. Lee has wanted that voice for years. He works down the interstate from the best summer warehouse at a Mercedes Benz plant, and he's watching this Amazon vote with interest because his factory was the epicenter of the last high profile labor battle in Alabama. You know, That's what it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in 25 years. On three accounts. They came close in the 20 tens when the United Auto Workers Union tried to make inroads at foreign auto plans moving to the American South. They're coming here because of the fact that there is not fear of unions. You know, they're saying that we're just not educated, you know, country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care. Nothing. Anti union sentiments are comin around the region, Alabama and many states around it have right to work laws, which mean every worker can choose not to pay union dues. Here's Michael in this human is a professor of the University of Alabama. The billboard that I'll never forget. Do you want Tuscaloosa to be the next Detroit? You know there's still race in there, too, obviously, But, you know, seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming that on the union's spits lease plans never got a union election. At several auto plants in the region. Workers voted against joining the U A W even at folks Wagon and Tennessee, where the company welcomed unionization. Now specially wonders if an Amazon Union might shake things up. It'll it'll send not a tsunami ripple, but it it's gonna send one of all the Southern States Industry menace points out. Alabama actually has the highest percentage of unionized workers and best summer specifically has union history. Now It's a community that's predominantly black. The Amazon Union campaign is evoking social and racial justice themes, union president Applebaum says in the South labor and civil rights struggles have often been intertwined. We have a proud tradition of being involved in the civil rights movement, and we see the effort that Amazon at this warehouse is being a continuation of that. Amazon has argued that the workers pushing to unionize do not represent the majority of its staff's views. The company touts its pay and benefits and it's pushing to delay the election, appealing for the vote to take place in person instead of by mail, despite current virus concerns.

You're talking about the ultimate warrior in the ultimate competitors, and I'm so happy for him that he was recognized as the best player in college football because I don't think anybody's done more for their team than he has for our team Nagi Harris, adding three touchdowns of his own and quarterback Matt Jones throwing for a career high.

"BK. You guys. The Alabama Crimson Tide didn't just roll. They steamrolled Ohio State 50 to 24 last night in Miami to win the college football National championship with the victory. Bama head coach next seven, picks up his six title in Tuscaloosa, seventh all time and surpasses legendary Tide coach Paul Bear Bryant. I think coach Brian has, you know, sort of in a class of his own in terms of what he was able to accomplish what his record is, and I mean, he's the one that made Alabama and the tradition of Alabama a place where lots of players wanted to come say they've got some all time performances from his offense, including Heisman winning wide receiver Devante Smith, who said a championship game record with 12 catches Go along with 215 yards and three touchdowns, and he did it all in the first half, because you'd injure his hand early in the second half and be done for the night. His to be Mack Jones through five TDs completed 36 45 passes for 464 yards and running back now you Harris found the ends on three times as well. The rockers search for a new GM is taking a step

Georgia Bulldogs announce no make-up game for Vanderbilt Commodores cancellation

"Always great to Welcome back mike griffith to the program and mike. Let's start with the georgia bulldogs. After a spectacular saturday. They were hoping for one more game. It had already been postponed and now it has been canceled in what has been the reaction there and can anything be done about well. We're not gonna probably ever have anything like this in the future but really curious about your thoughts. Yeah a lot of fury. A lotta anger at georgie. No i it's twofold one georgia's playing great football. Jt daniels i mean before jt. They convert forty two percent of the third downs with jt. They convert sixty six right. Jt daniel six touchdown passes on on third down throws three incompletions. I mean the guys night and day. It's been amazing. Some people maybe. It's the schedule actually know if you look at the third down defense is the last. Three teams actually ranked better than the first six on average. What georgia's played. This guy has made all the difference in the world. It makes a difference in recruiting. Suddenly you have players. That are migrating to georgia that. Want to be a part of the georgia offense again so this transformation is happening in the shadows. Now that's georgia's fault. They didn't take care of business when they needed to jacksonville or in tuscaloosa and so they're sitting out this week so you don't get to see it but it's been happening on saturdays in athens and this georgia outgoing class. All these guys had an opportunity to be the winningest class in georgia football history. That's quite a legacy. But because vanderbilt canceled out all they can do is tie that mark now and so the a piece of their legacy is gone understand. Covid nineteen is not controllable but in the case of vanderbilt its players that are quitting the team and in the case of vanderbilt they cancelled on december fifth rally the troops for their senior day on december twelve and then canceled on georgia again. After the fact so georgia couldn't even get an alternative game that was acceptable for the senior day. So there's a lot of of anger and frustration and disappointment and all george can do now is hope that they get a good bowl draw. I think they need notre dame to upset clemson. I think if that happens. And if chalk holds and ohio state beat the bad northwestern and alabama roles florida. You could see georgia clemson in the orange bowl and i think that could excite the georgia fan but as things currently project. You're looking maybe. Cincinnati georgia in which case. Maybe some georgia guys opt out and say you know what it's cincinnati. It's it's not a real game.

That's what I like. Are Artie's engagement slash angry? Yeah, right. I was going to ask what you know, already just brought it up. I mean, what do you make? I mean, listen, we're gonna have SEC teams that have played 56 games before the big 10 kicks off. I think up to six games, maybe even Mohr before the Pac 12 kicks off. What are you going to make of if we have Ah 78 no Pac 12 team and 19 0 it Big 10 team against, Say, a nine in two SEC team. I know it's impossible to say right now how everybody looks, But what do you make of these teams that are coming to the party so late when these SEC teams are playing 10 straight conference games? Well, I think you've got to be able to take that in consideration. If you're on the committee, you gotta like you're going to take a look at the strength of schedule. We've got a guy that we feature on the analytic side and he told us even before If you take eight SEC games, and you captain like that into a strength of schedule, that nobody's really even close, even though they play Maurin a lot of the conferences, then the SEC, So when you add that I asked the question about 10 and said, Give me the strength of schedule Metric. I think you've got to consider that you're sitting there. But what Clay Alabama wants to take what they admit They finished it in a note. They go to Atlanta? And they already beat George once. It's hard to be the team twice, because if they went on to phase that I'm here in Tuscaloosa, they go to Atlanta and they slip up and you've got a 10 and one team setting there. You know, but you got a you know, Pap 12 or a big 10 team. Ohio State runs the table. Marion. I mean, forget it. I mean that that's out of the bay, but I'm just sitting there saying, Okay, you got a team. It's a struggle, but kind of maneuver their way through. They've won seven games, but you only got to take a look at the strength of schedule. Everything's gonna get one team and But it's the goals of getting two teams in. You know the expectations here in this geographical region Big lucky with one. By the way, How did Alabama fans feel about the game today? Where I could tell they were all about it?

Hey I appreciate you taking my call I was listening to the interview with the author on the Mike pence thing earlier it got me thinking this hard hello I thank you. do you think that his his religion or his Christianity is apparently negative quality he has and then my next question thank you thank you that's a negative quality a candidate's religion overall would you say that the negative quality to them. yeah like I don't care I I I think that we have to respect people of faith that we need to respect people of faith that participating in politics and and and their views and the important thing though is that that people's faith in my view it should also be in our constitutional democracy and and liberal democracy and that's what Abraham Lincoln called the political religion but I I don't to question people's faith in politics Robbie in mesa Arizona you're on the congressman Condit. yes thanks have got a comment that my question the the comment is when you guys will all of these facts please include the time lines were ever your possible because that's where parks news and conspiracy theorists up take advantage they leave out the time lines and then the Biden son is a perfect example of like when you leave the time line out it looks pretty incriminating so that being said just make sure that the time line goes along with it the facts in the data points that are are going to be presented during this process my question is this now we start pretty people under oath to questions like William Barr are you can use a sergeant of arms to arrest these people when they don't answer questions. Dave I agree with you that we need to put the facts out we need to put them out simply and that we need to put a time line out that's a great suggestion in terms of the talking about arms that the speaker does have that power if someone is defying a subpoena to threaten to bring that person in for sergeant of arms I don't think that that the going K. in practice we use I think it's far more likely that we would just impeach the person or hold them in contempt and that's already been done in the oversight committee with bell bar yeah I I know we just have thirty seconds to the break here I noticed that the seven national security Democrats these freshmen who were all military or ex CIA FBI whatever is specifically mention inherent contempt in their op ed in The New York Times yeah you yeah in the Parilli there's inherent contempt criminal contempt in civil contempt criminal content has to run through bill Barr civil contempt can take years in the courts and and and there is other arguing for inherent in time just to get your content your thoughts. hello there been a game changer I mean when the seven national security Democrats.

"He's talented, and I think that his fit in Oklahoma will be probably perfect for him. I really think that he's going to have an opportunity to showcase. His talent there, and I really look forward to seeing him next year with Oklahoma. And I wish him all the success in the world. And I'll leave you with that. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you, very very much really nice to hear from you. John is up next in Huntsville, Alabama. Hello, john. All find bomb longtime listener longtime reader. Wow, the Rieger column in the post airlines only reason about that rag. Well, you know, no. I heard that a few times I act like it was a great newspaper. It was. Okay. The, you know, the afternoon paper, but you had a nickname that nobody has ever spoken that I've ever heard, and I'm gonna say it if you don't mind, I don't even remember what it was what what is a time bomb time bomb. Yeah. You're on that was a time bomb finebaum because you were not an Alabama lover back in those days. I think it was from the time that Ray Perkins was the coke. And he used the word prediction, est. And you got all over that word, and you got all over burqas to know that that's you know, people that have no me a long time. And this is before many many of you were were born have gotten the big chuckle out of all the pro Alabama monikers that have been attached to me. But back in the I mean there there was a time. John is you probably remember that I needed security to go to Tuscaloosa for a game ESE. Did you? Not well liked by. And I didn't like you were you were good rider. And I read your column every day. Thank you very much. I want an answer to questions that have been around since Barbara Dooley was on the air. The question was why does Georgia hate Alabama so much and the two word answer is Furman Bisher. Yeah. That's probably right. He was he wrote articles. He cooperated with the Saturday Evening Post trying to get a Bryant fired made all the accusations against he and Wally butts and just he hated the success of Alabama head and wrote that way, and he he stoked the fires of anti Alabama ISM. And enjoy you know, I don't remember maybe twenty years ago or something maybe longer we interviewed Furman Bisher, and even then we're talking about in the nineties he attacked he went after Bryant in a vicious manner. That's. That's just who it was. I don't I don't know. I don't think Furman still alive. I have narrow neuropathy idea. If he is he's very old. But he he was about as disliked as anyone that's ever stepped foot. He told his story about going to Tuscaloosa once and it was it was it was he's again people in Atlanta loved him people in Alabama hated him. Yes. Yes. And the second question was would Georgia Tech. Join SEC, and I can pretty much say that as long as Alabama is a member of the SEC, Georgia Tech willnot. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you very much. Appreciate the call. Brian is in Syracuse. Hey, brian. Hi, how you doing great Brian? Thank you. Hey, listen. I wanna thank you for putting me on the phone the other day.

But Secondly, you know, as far as football is concerned. I will tell you this. I love the fact that the SEC has so much passion. And and and you know, I look at I grew up I grew up here and love it. It's it's it's just it's just good stuff. Now anybody who hates Alabama hates greatness. Okay. So you oughta yada just figure it out. Like that. We're trying to do that in Syracuse.
