Surprised to hear the suggestion of Alabama negatively recruiting against Texas. Pretty good info that solidifies Tim's prediction...
How will things finish with As Eyes of Texas breaks it all down with signing day now just two days away.
meh doesnt bother me. whether we want to admit it or not, our beloved crimson tide staff negatively recruits just like every other out there IMO
"Texas going no where fast" how is the truth negative recruiting?
Certainly they do. I think one of the distinctions is that Saban doesn't appear to do it. But he certainly has his minions make the facts known.
They don't recruit at all like most staffs out there.

Agreed. Take off the crimson blinders if you don't believe this IMO
Yeah I don't believe that horseshit for a minute. I'm sure the source for that article wasn't a butt-hurt Texas fan or anything.
Why do you believe this? Every interview I have read from recruits says we focus on what Alabama has to offer and not on other schools.
No flame intended, but I don't live in a fantasy world and know that recruiting/football is a dirty game. Maybe Saban doesn't negative recuit, but don't think the assistant coaches don't do this to some degree.
And now you know...the rest of the story.
Bama did not need to use negativity here. Nothing but sour grapes from his so-called source....pure butthurt. 3 BCSNC's in the last 4 years and our record of NFL ready talent to the league sells itself. A good look at the UTex program's current condition is all the negativity Robinson needed.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
That's not negative recruiting. That's pointing out an obvious.
you would be crippling yourself unnecessarily if they didnt point out what they needed to point out about other staffs and schools
The funny thing is if you read the entire article it is pretty much full of bad things.... recruits losing interest, 2014 prospects visiting other schools.
It reminds me of the old joke "It's not the clothes that make you look fat, it's the FAT that makes you look fat". It's not other schools talking negatively about you that makes recruits feel negative about you.... it's all the negative things about your school that makes recruits feel negative about you!!
add on to that the fact that Alabama is growing more awesome everyday...... tough to hang on to 5 stars for a year with a dynasty a couple states over.... just sayin.
Texas is the new Georgia. All your recruits are belong to us....
"The Alabama Mothership is calling all 5 stars home"
Considering all the over the top, just for the hell of it, "because we can" fauburning our staff does, why would anyone think we are too good to point out that you have a choice between Saban and another coach who sucks? Common sense IYAM.
because it helps you get a leg up
"negative" is only the name of it
as others have pointed out, its merely recounting the facts
