NSD wrap-up and current roster analysis

With National Signing Day officially in the books – even though December's Early Signing Day has eclipsed NSD as the real signing day of note – Kalen DeBoer and his staff can finally begin the work of actually getting its roster into fighting shape for the upcoming 2024 season. Alabama's 30-day transfer portal period, which kicked into being following Nick Saban's retirement, will be ending soon, and we do not expect to see any further entries. Alabama was hit hard in the days immediately after Saban's departure, but portal entries quickly dried up over the last two weeks, and Alabama was able to add three former Washington players: QB Austin Mack, WR Germie Bernard and C Parker Brailsford. Still, because of the significant losses to the post-Saban portal – especially a total of eight solely from the ranks of the defensive backs, including three expected starters and four others that were expected to break camp in the two-deep – TideFans.com is bringing you an updated roster analysis. More importantly, this will be our first attempt to project a depth chart using Kalen DeBoer's preferred offensive (Air Raid) and defensive (4-2-5 Swarm) systems.

The CFP Selection Committee was formed to thwart situations like this, but it abdicated its responsibility

Now that the dust has settled on the total embarrassment that was the 2022-2023 College Football Playoff, the only question that remains is whether the CFP Selection Committee chooses to learn from it. If you tend to get twisted up by reading statements you feel are outrageous, do yourself and your diastolic blood pressure reading a favor and back out now, because this is going to be a column full of them – and none of them are embellished for shock value.
