Either one would be wonderful, but both would be freaking off the charts. I don't think it's completely out of the realm of possibility either. Definitely a better chance now!!

The thing with McCullers is that he only has 3 to play 2 years. So we need another freshman DT for depth purposes.

Great blanket statement. Bama has 27 commits, they are pretty much done.

Nope no even close to be honest. We have 27 verbally commited. But we have 2 that look to be headed to JUCO and one yesterday that was interviewed and stated because of his knee surgery he will not enroll until Jan 2013. So currently we have 24 if all that transpires and our sites since Nov said we could sign up to 29 because we make 4 EEs midyear exemptions with the new SEC rule. So we have room for 4 or 5 more. Even if the 2 with academic concerns do sign and get in we still can take 3 more. But I do think those spots are for specific targets and if we do not get those recruits those spots will remain open for next year aloowing us to have midyear exemptions for the 2013 class.

Does Saban kick 10 guys off the team every year? It seems like you guys are always signing 25+ each year.

When you have a bunch of dudes leaving early for the NFL every year, you don't need to kick as many off.

UT fans have forgotten about this over the last few years, unfortunately.

Nick Saban to Atlanta RB: You can’t sign with Alabama until next year | AJC College Sports Recruiting

just a little difference in the take

Okay, who's the idiot who gave him the wrong number.

At least it's a recruit we don't seem interested in

How the hell can Bama sign 29 when the new SEC rule in place only allows for 25? EEs count against the 25 last I checked, your numbers don't add up.

This has nothing to do with the 25 recruiting limit.

Saban does it and everyone talks about how smart he is. Dooley tells 2 to look elsewhere and the negavols and hysterical media raise the roof. Even though one of the 2 probably won't make it academically. Rebuilding is hell, I guess.
