Never was much of a fan of Alford. He and Ash were at 3Bag for a recruiting class thing where they showed us clips and talked about the guys they recruited for that class. That was Parker's class actually. Anyways they took questions at the end and Alford especially kept his answers very vague but his reaction to my question was priceless. I think our punter the season before had just graduated and this was right after Shaggy had missed one of his big kicks at the end of the season so I asked how come no kickers in this recruiting class when it was a weak area for us? Alford almost immediately rolled his eyes, had a strange grin on his face and turned his back to the crowd almost as if he was saying to himself "great, not this question." Ash kinda smiled then stepped up to the plate with a preface "neither of us are in charge of special teams or recruiting for them so take this answer for what it is" and gave a very PC answer about how they still had confidence in Shaggy and they realize the kicks he misses have been costly but they thought he'd grow from them and be a better kicker because of it. The entire time Alford was shaking his head with a grin on his face which made me think he wasn't too happy that I asked that question but I thought at the time it was fair game, they can't all be easy questions.
