I love how EVERYBODY, especially Dinardo), screwed over poor little Craigypoo. Yet, no one mentions Nick Saban. If Saban had been a failure here, Saban would be at the top of the Nall Homer's hit list. But, because Saban was a success and is generally regarded as a great coach, you hear nothing about Saban.
BUT, it was Saban who determined Nall was the third stringer. And, it was under Saban that Nall transferred out of LSU. And, it was under Saban that LSU won 2 SEC Championships, 2 Sugar Bowls, and a National Championship. And he accomplished this all withuut the services of the great and soon-t0-be-perennial All Pro ( )Craig Nall whom he considered to be a THIRD STRING COLLEGE quarterback.
You Nall homers sound like Tulane fans -- "all our players would be NFL All Pros if it weren't for such-and-such deliberately trying to hold him down for political reasons."
If someone in the NFL thought Nall (OR ANYONE ELSE) could win them football games, he'd be playing and they would have traded a 7th round pick for him LONG ago. Instead, he'll be DAMN LUCKY to sign on for league minimum as a third stringer.
I was on the football coaching staff at Bolton when Nall was a QB at ASH. He had a great arm and is a good football player. He also is a good guy, but I feel he isn't a franchise QB and will be nothing more than a backup. I could be wrong, and wish him all the best, but while at Bolton we beat them for the district title my last year there. On one occasion, a coach at ASH came down to our booth and started talking about how good craig was and how he changed the play at the line of scrimm for a TDpass. It was sweet when we came back and whipped that ###.
I grew up playing with Craig from little league to Dixie Majors. We won a state title when we were 13 and I have always thought he was over-rated. He was a media darling while he was at ASH yet he never completed 50% of his passes. If it wasn't for his dad, Malcom, kissing butt to everybody then he wouldn't have been on a football scholarship anywhere. I was very surprised that he made it to the NFL just like everybody else from Alex. He will never be a starter in the NFL but he will make a ton of money just by being another Doug Pederson. Good for him and his family on that one but honestly he should never sniff playing time
