Do you think nick Saban and staff go nuts in a war room after each big get? The ole miss reactions look Busch league to me and remind me of fsu last year. How did that work out? Oh yeah they still lost to Boston college. You still have to coach EM up and we got the best in the biz.
You know the saying, act like you've been there before..well...they haven't.
Saban is too busy watching film of Texas A&M and calling 2014, 2015 prospects.
Ole Miss is busch league. Getting these guys to sign is the easy part. Now you have to develop them, keep them in class, and keep them out of trouble. Something Ole Miss has had a lot of trouble with over the years.
I see the AU troop a lupe espn signing day show case of 2 years ago...... And we see how that worked out.
It's obviously planned, and now they're stuck. They have to do it with each guy now, and with each one it'll look worse.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
More like Budweiser league or Coors league, imo.
Saban eats another oatmeal cream pie and moves on
Natty Ice league, if you ask me. Definitely not Chimay league.
They haven't been there in a long time so I'm sure there is some legitimate excitement over landing these top guys and some recruits probably like to see it. I remember when we got Julio and several in that class i was pumped as heck and now when a 5 star commits or signs I'm like that's great now who is next, what does 2014 look like and when does spring practice start so we can work on 16!
AU did this too. I will also add that there is no to compare what CNS and staff do when they get a surprise because they are rarely surprised IMO. Complete control of the recruiting game is why this happens.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
I'd imagine our staff's "td celebration" looks something like this....
AJ McCarron throws 19 yard touchdown pass to Amari Cooper to put Alabama up 42-7. McCarron's 4th TD Pass, and Cooper's 2nd TD Catch of the game.
I dare say getting them to sign is the EXPENSIVE part
It is staged, you saw the reporter earlier say he Tunsil came in and signed LOI, faxed it in and left. All for ESPN.
