With some high profile visitors yesterday, does this hurt Bama in anyway?
I believe that Vonn Bell had to be thinking, "Man, i could be making some of those plays to help this team win." So it could be a good thing in recruiting at least.
It won't hurt recruiting. It's not like we lost 63-21 in front of an empty stadium.
Didn't LSU have a couple of guys commit to them after we beat them the week before?
I doubt it hurts that much. The recruiting visit isn't so much about the game on the field as it is all the things around it. The campus, the stadium atmosphere, support structure and so on.
If you play DB you should think you have a very good chance to come in and start since we haven't been able to cover anyone 2 weeks in a row. Also we have zero pass rush. And unless your name is Amari Cooper, we don't have any WR's that can get open.

Like other have said....I think it actually helps. Seeing Alabama win every week makes kids think there isn't much room for improvement.
If Georgia's recruiting hasn't been hurt, by getting the least result with the most talent for years and years, I don't think dropping one game against a top 15 team is going to hurt ours. Same for Texas. Some recruits are going to pick against us for any number of reasons, just as they did against USC at the height of Pete Carroll's tenure there, and just as they did against Bama during Coach Bryant's era.
good call guys - doesn't hurt at all - Bama still hot ticket for recruits especially if we take care of business in games we have left
I think recruits handle losses much better than fans do. Most of them have played on teams that have lost several games during their time in high school, and I think they see it more from that perspective.
If losing becomes a trend, see across the state, then I think it becomes much more of a negative to deal with.
