    Live 10 minutes from Nease so have watched him play a few times and know a few who know him.
    The kid will surprise many, don’t sell him him short

    It's never just about the QB. The people our staff recruit and develop to play around him means a lot. Can anyone see a reason he wouldn't be about as good as any decent QB Alabama has had in the Saban era?

    Possibly because the other QB's you listed were all Uncommitted at the time unlike stokes who was committed to Penn St. Surely you always try for an Uncommitted guy before trying to flip ones commitment?

    So what’s this video online circulating today about him that has Gator fans upset with him? Anyone seen it?

    edit: sounds like he may have used the N word…rut roh

    Fake account, real video of him singing a song and using the n word. Not a good look, but the kids today do say it a lot more openly regardless of race.

    Will be interesting to see if this pushes him out of the class “gracefully.”

    What a bunch of crap. The song says it but white people aren't allowed to sing along?

    I think the older crowd has an issue with it. His teammates probably don’t care and he probably needs to not do that if he’s gonna be in the spotlight unfortunately.

    I am the older crowd (51) I couldn't care less who throws it around. Sick of the double standard and cancel culture.
    Will be pissed if we lose a recruit over nonsense and weakminded people

    If you dont want that word to be said then dont put it in your lyrics. otherwise all people are going to "sing"it regardless of race if they like the song

    Listening to the spaces now. I’m sure the kid was not being malicious (have not seen the video) but that was a big mistake. There will definitely be consequences from it but hopefully he gets out in front of it.

    Why people listen to music that if they sing the lyrics to it their life is over….is beyond me.

    Then get mad when people repeat it.

    Reminds me of that time Kendrick Lamar invited a white girl on stage then kicked her off when she sang his song.

    What??? After Thursday night football on Prime Video for the whole world to watch Amazon Prime presented "Megan the Stallion" live to the nation. Most vile songs I have ever heard let alone on tv. Her hit song was "We need to bring back all the real N'Words(replaced)" . 80% of the audience was white and shouting out all the lyrics. YOU NEED TO TRACK THOSE 1000 whites down and punish them!!! Megan the Stallion was encouraging the audience to sing along with her. You need to go after her!!!

    Until 1... ONE... A SINGLE... African American comes out on TV and leads the charge that it is wrong for African Americans artists to use N'Word(s) in songs, there is nothing wrong in singing a song that they are playing for millions of people on Amazon Prime and the African American artists are encouraging everyone to sing.
