This new Bama Hammer series was originally conceived as a content substitute for the interval of little hard news. Alabama Crimson Tide fans are still interested in Alabama football content. Without much current information, looking at the past made sense.
The BH staff quickly embraced the idea. Concerned two or more might choose the same player, a certain player was excluded. When all the staff members and I made our selections, it turned out none of us would have chosen that player.
The purpose of the above explanation is to highlight how, really, really hard it is to pick one player.
