Last year the staff pulled off a major coup by getting Collins from a rival state's backyard. and I think he does the same this year with Conner.
I don't think Liner signs with the good guys, so I go along with a few others who think we get Reed, EV, or Robinson. I think we sign two of them.
Foster was never going anyplace but the Barn.
If we don't get Tunsil I think we sign Poggi(I know he's a DL, but there has been a lot of talk about him switching to the OL).
As usual, there is nothing to worry about.

Why is everyone all of a sudden thinking we don't sign Liner?
People love to panic, overreact and just assume the worst. It's okay I do that sometimes, too. It's not healthy but I do it.
Obviously there is som interest there if hes taking a visit to UGA, But hes been to bama like a million times in the last month alone. In the end Liner will sign where he knows he can win AND is the most comfortable and thats at Alabama.
Actually if we don't sign Liner and get 2 of Vanderdoes, Robinson, Poggi, Reed, some would say it's assuming the best. I'm good either way.....no flame
No panicking here. The BOL staff is great at analyzing and it seemed to me with us 'trending' with Robinson and EV has a surprise pic, I just think that we have a great shot at both. DLiner going visiting UGA doesn't bother me.
We've been after Liner for a long time and I thought he would've committed already. Maybe he needs to be shown a lot of love, and shown it repeatedly, maybe Liner is 'silent commit.' If we could get an commit from one of the three other DL it might be expedite DLiner to commit as well. There are a whole lot of possible scenarios, but we will get two out of the four DL.
Thats based on getting those 2 of those players if we dont land Liner. Not landing Liner doesnt automatically mean we sign 2 of the other guys. The statement was about losing Liner to UGA. To assume he chooses UGA over Bama when he's been to Bama several times in the last month and been considered a heavy Bama lean by the mods is assuming the worst.

Well I feel like our coaches have gotten to the point where almost every scenario has a backup plan. Of course Liner choosing UGA doesn't automatically 100% guarantee we get two of the 4 guys I mentioned in a post on a message board. Will you be pissed if Liner goes to UGA last minute and we close with EV, Robinson, Poggi, Conner, Kamara? I'll be OK with it. It's just so unpredictable. However, I stand by losing Liner is not "assuming the worst" with the number of guys we're still in on.
I agree with you. Assuming Alabama can get some studs to replace Liner in the event he dosen't sign with UA it won't affect me one bit. Players ought to be lined up wanting to play for us at this point.
I agree. No inside info, but I have a gut feeling we get both Robinson & EV.
I will say, however, the UCLA fans seem very confident on EV.
I'll wait until after Vanderdoes visits Alabama this weekend before drawing any conclusions. Distance from home isn't a top priority for him.
If it is, then clearly he will go to UCLA. But if he decides to leave the state it becomes a heads up battle between Alabama and Notre Dame. If that's the case, then I like our chances a lot.
sure would be nice to have hung on to walker, although vanderdoes is better.
I will be shocked if we get Connor. Difference with Collins was LSU does not have the "tire man". Hope I am wrong, but as much as I think Connor might like Bama, too much pressure for him to stay at Ole Miss.
