Just saw Orlando Brown committed to UT. I know we were after him and I hate that the Vols got another committ. I know we are being selective but I really wish our commitments would start flowing in.
I'd like to get laid. But if i take advantage of the first opportunity rather than wait for the right opportunity, i might end up with something I regret for the long haul, if you catch my drift.
It just can't ever be "I guess dude just liked another school better" with some folks.

Fantastic advice,appropriate on many different levels of life.
Afraid of competition IMO
I don't know what's harder to believe...OP getting insecure over one guy committing to Tennessee, or OP being worried about the state of our recruiting. Seriously, if Saban's recruiting hasn't earned your trust this early in the process, maybe you should just stop following recruiting.
Frankly I get sort of tired reading these types of replies. If a kid doesn't commit to us, he's either lazy, doesn't wanna compete and earn his spot against the best competition, or just doesnt want to be competing for championships. No disrespect but it gets old. I believe truly that our coaches tell these kids exactly what to expect if they are given an actual commitable offer. They value every opportunity that they lay out for these kids so much that it might scare a few guys away every now and then with our transparency approach, I don't know, but I also believe that most kids with big time D1A offers are also huge competitors. They have to be. Not every opportunity starts and stops in Tusc.

I don't make excuses when a kid chooses another school over Bama. But I do hate when the other school is UT or the barn
Never Gets Old
Brown is a three star OT who happens to have a famous name. He didn't have the ability to commit to us at this point.
I don't know if he does or if he doesn't have the ability to commit to us. I just know that we will get guys that CNS wants. What a luxury to have! I worry not about recruiting anymore, as I've stated since 2007. What we do is unmatched and frankly a little unfair for other schools lol. I'm enjoying this stress free ride. Never seen anything like it
i have learned brown is the worst offensive lineman in the history of recruiting ITT
cant believe saban wasted any time at all on him
Pretty obvious IMO.
YEAH.....I think we should just go ahead and get our commitments flowing as well. Just get them on board already. That way some can then complain about how boring the end of the recruiting cycle is and specifically how boring NSD is this year.
I wish our coach had a plan
Or if he even had any history of recruiting well. As fans, there is just so much to worry about relative to getting recruits and more...getting quality recruits. I have a bad feeling about how this cycle is shaping up. Hope I'm wrong but something just doesn't seem right.
Listening to BillbKing the other morning, he felt that the kid wouldn't contribute until year 3 or 4 or even at all. Long way to go for improvement.
We only have FIVE recruits for gods sake!!!! Tejas has 13. At this rate if we pull a full class that means Tejas will have 65. We shouldn't stand for this. How much would it cost to get Mack Brown out of Texas?
Could you imagine if we had the amount of talent that the state of Texas does? Zero reason for Mack Brown's team to suck. Ever.
