Three chairs on the stage as we wait ...

Fluker, Lacy, Milliner?
Is this streaming anywhere?
Not that I know of.
Usually the way this works is Saban comes in with the players and one-by-one they make their announcement.
Lacy and Milliner are sitting at the front with Saban.
Do you expect any surprises Chris?
"You don't always get what you want, but you always get what you deserve"
Saban: Neither of these guys have been in my office for not doing the right thing. Have done well academically. Both are very close to graduating. Have promised to finish at some point. Both are successful players and have been part of successful teams. Good teammates. Set good examples.
Both have made a good business decision. Saban says he supports both of their decisions.
Both went about things the right way in making their decision(s).
(Burns just stuck into the back room)
Lacy announces he's going pro.
good for him, smart.
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
"It's been an amazing experience here." Looking back, in four years he's accomplished all of his goals, and now is the right time to make the move.
Milliner announces he's going pro.
Adam Kramer @KegsnEggs
That sound you hear is the entire SEC fist-pumping RT @Andrew_Gribble: RB Eddie Lacy confirms he's entering the NFL Draft.
Thanks a lot of people, including family for their love and support, teammates.
To cap it off with another championship was one of the best feelings ever. It's been a great experience.
Fluker? Is He there as well?
Saban: Excited about the players who have decided to stay. All made good choices.
Fluker could not be here today, is going pro
I'd love the Falcons to pick up Lacy. Probably won't happen but I think he would fit in that scheme very well.
On Lacy - Saban said he thinks there's a lot of bad info out there about his draft status.
Durability is a factor with his position, too.
Saban said he told him he wants him to stay, but understands his situation and "I think you have to make this decision." Said he fully supports him, but his situation is a little unique.
Any other juniors? We may have other guys, but "hopefully" this is pretty much it. Can be surprised on occasion. Usually when that happens it's based on emotion more than a business decision.
