BREAKING NEWS: ALABAMA HAS TALENTED PLAYERS AND PEOPLE PUT THEM ON A LIST

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Look, I'm all for celebrating anytime an Alabama player is being mentioned for an individual award, but outside of giving us something to talk about, these pre-season award watch lists are rather meaningless. Also, I've become a tad numb at seeing Alabama players listed among the nation's elite. #BamaProblems

But, again, it's the off-season and these lists being released shows us that football is well its way.

T-minus 23 days till August...

Wait.....Coker? Is this real life? The guy has never started a game at the college level and is coming off knee surgery, yet is placed on a watch list for the Maxwell Award? At this point, the dude has no shot at living up to the expectations unless he's the 2nd coming of.......AJ McCarron,
