The Johns move and the offense’s success in scrimmages this week portend at least some evolution of the Crimson Tide offensive strategy. With a converted quarterback and wide receiver both filling in spots on the tailback depth chart, even the less than creative can see the potential. Is it too much to ask for one halfback pass out of the wishbone? Even if it is against MTSU?
But evolution is a tricky thing. And changes based on circumstance rarely coincide with an ultimate goal. Over the eons, how many paramecia stretched forth their cilia only to be absorbed into the larger trichocysts of another? Seemed like a good idea at the time, I’m sure.
And sometimes imbalance may be preferable to natural selection. Current ecological thinkers posit it would be good for the long run to “re-wild” the

If one assumes the world is so complex that there must be someone (wink, wink) behind it all, then one would also assume, looking at the world’s savagery and brutal necessity to spill blood, that whomever this designer may be (nudge, nudge) he at best doesn’t care much for us poor slobs or at worst harbors a serious grudge. What happens to the creationists’ concerns then? Toto, we’re not in
In the long run, it may be best to redshirt Johns, make him listen to recordings of Kenny Stabler reading the playbook while he sleeps, and start him under center to see what happens when you put the ball in his hands 100% of the calls instead of 50%. But for right now, the coaches are at least humoring the short term gains (pun intended) he could rack up on the field now.
When Jimmy Johns turned 18, the federal government said he was old enough to be drafted into its military and state of
