Poor bastards getting off the bus in Tuscaloosa will probably feel like those dumped on Omaha Beach - Unknown Vol's fan
That kid is walking down a path so boldly blazed by Robert Marve.
Another recruiting bust, but I remember when many a Bama fan loved this kid.
I know it is almost played out, but trust in Saban. It is his job. He is proven. He is better at identifying talent than you.
as I recall we offered Kiel and recruited him hard. what's you're point?
You do realize that Saban (you know, the guy who is so much better than us) REALLY wanted to sign this kid right? He is actually the one who put his eggs in the G. Keil basket and we missed. So your post actually doesnt make any sense. Are you trying to say that Saban passed on Keil? Because no, he did not.
I remember all the G. Keil fallout on the board because I was disappointed also. I hate to say it but it looks like he is a bust. I hope I'm wrong because he is a very talented qb.
Probably will end up at Indiana, isn't his brother there?
I don't see this as him being a bust, necessarily. He just got beat out by another young, athletic QB that had an extra year under his belt. If he was looking for an easy road to becoming a starter, you have to question his decision to go to ND where there were several young QBs on the roster, but he's still a talented player and could very well make a splash somewhere.

I'm making a general statement that Saban knows what he is doing. I think he showed that in the handling of Keil. I'm sorry the Saban love upsets you.
I'm cool with a Marve joke, but I don't see it. Marve decommitted and went to Miami. He got in trouble, and wanted a transfer. He wanted to go to USF to be near his sick dad, but Shannon said no to any Florida schools. But Marve did play at Purdue.
Kiel switched an absurd number of times, just to transfer a year from when he signed.
You mean he showed that he knows what hes doing by throwing all his eggs in one basket to get Keil, didnt land him, and by doing this we lost Winston? What youre saying makes no sense because Saban didnt pass on Keil. He wanted him bad enough to slow play another 5 star and lose him. You really dont understand this? for real?
Have you sent your resume into Mal Moore yet?
We do not know what actually happened. We have message board postings and conjecture. I am sorry you think Coach Saban screwed up the situation. Like I said, I am sure you are a much better coach and Alabama will be happy to hire you.
Never Said Saban wasnt great at his job. Im just trying to understand how youre using this situation as an example of how awesome he is. Your original post doesnt really make sense in this thread. Also, FYI i never said i thought Saban screwed up the situation. All i did was state what happened. It was pretty obvious at the time that our staff was hard after keil, and if you say they werent youre just an idiot. All im saying is that you cant just throw out a "See, you all are idiots and saban is awesome" in any thread. It just doesnt make sense in this situation. Nobody is bashing Saban so calm down.
