stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Texas should have seen this coming when the player's name is A'Shawn. Maybe they will have better luck with players named Tee or T'Kevian.
"You will suffer humiliation when the team from my area defeats the team from your area." -- The Onion
Maybe they should try and recruit his younger brother B'Shawn, or perhaps his cousin D'Shawn.
made me LOL. Best laugh I've had all day!
I think B'Shawn is a Boise State lean, and D'Shawn is also 5-star hoops recruit likely to sign with Duke. Now T'Shawn, on the other hand...
(Hopefully there is also an AA'Shawn).
Mack Brown is losing the state of Texas.Who would of ever thought that.
"Are you an official here?Because you've officially given me a boner."
I can't imagine they normally pull in less than half of that group
OU usually plucks a guy or two out of there.
They lost to OU, K State, West Va, and TCU. We lost to bama, ND, Neb, OSU, and SCar. Do you not see a difference in quality there?
edit: this was supposed to be in response to the guy who said we're a dumpster fire solely because they had a better record than us. I guess Northwestern was better than us this year too?
Call Mr. Plow, that's my name, that name again is Mr. Plow
I think Northwestern was, than you Roy Roundtree...

Even if Texas fires Mack Brown after this year, it won't take long for them to get back. They have the money to hire whoever they want, and there's still a lot of elite recruits in that state who grew up dreaming to play for UT.
But if they have another mediocre year, and especially one where they get manhandled by Oklahoma again, I don't think they can afford to wait around much longer to make a move. UT are undoubtedly impatient, and A&M is quickly staking its claim for in-state talent.
It's been a lot. Its been a roller coaster that for some reason seemed like it would never get good. But you know what? We kept fighting. It's like that old saying goes, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." -David Molk
I believe they were predicted to get Dee Liner as well, that's quite an impressive haul (although not very surprising considering the on field success.)
Blank.....Blank......You're not looking at the big picture here.
I read that Liner is taking a surprise! visit to Georgia, so.... who knows.
You hear? Translation: feeling inadequate on a snowing Saturday and decided to troll boards for random Internet speculation and found a juicy thread with no concrete evidence to support said speculation.
Why don't you claim something based on a recruiting analyst and then say that it was you who actually knew first and rage that they are plagiarizing you!

Is Bama's run ever going to end? Seriously! Saban not bolting to the NFL after 3 championships in 4 years leads me to believe he will finish his career at Alabama. Kirby Smart could of probably had his pick of college head coaching jobs or NFL defensive coordinator jobs yet he stays at Alabama. It seems if he is being groomed to be Saban's replacement. The real question is how many more championships does Alabama win in the next 5 years? I will say 3.
See Saban leaving for only a few jobs in all of America...
And an NFL team that may call and is ready to win now, like New England, Houston (doubtful), and that's about it...maybe Green Bay.
Denard Robinson......They're not going to catch him!
why would Saban leave for Texas or USC?? there is zero recruiting advantage since he already picks who he wants. Saban isn't going anywhere till the NCAA steps in.
Can do the same thing at Texas at USC. Nick Saban doesn't stay forever anywhere...he'll go somewhere soon, Texas is a big time program that will have an opening soon, tons of talent in Texas and they can offer mucho money. USC? I don't think I need to say anymore. Saban will eventually leve Bama, he will want one other challenge. I think the NFL for a team that is close is probably the best bet, who knows though, the NFL didnt seem to be to his liking last time though, hence Texas or USC possibly.
again,what recruits will he get at texas or usc that he cant get at bama? money? yeah i think bama can match any offer texas or usc comes with. i do agree that if he leaves it will be for the nfl.
Follow Saban, it's not like Alabama itself brings in great players. My point is at some point he's going to get tired of Bama and if he wants to stay in college, I could see him being interested in Texas or USC because they are storied programs that could be fixed quick but need a little life currently.
If Saban ever leaves Bama it'll be for the NFL, and even then, it'd need to be for a top-flight organization like the Packers or the Pats. I wouldn't be shocked if Belichek asks Saban to take over whenever he decides to retire.
Why would Saban ever leave leave Bama for another school? He's built one of the greatest football dynasties ever and has his pick of the litter as far as recruits go. Besides, any school that could pay Saban what he'd want, Bama would match. It's not like that school would want to invest in much else.
This question is always asked of great dynasties. It was asked about USC, Miami, and Nebraska going back. It will be asked of Michigan someday. The answer is always: Yes.

The end is usually triggered by a coaching change or trouble with the NCAA.
i'll sell 3
Guy transfer back to Texas after next season when Saban is the new Longhorn coach? I only joke, but could see Saban going there after Texas offers like 10 million a year.
Muschamp supposed to be browns successor before Florida came a callin.
And you can bet if Texas is looking next season, Saban will get a call and could get between 8-10 million...
Saban isn't going to jump ship like that. If he ever leaves Alabama (which is very likely in the next year or two, imo) he is going to the NFL. Then, when he flames out again, he might go to Texas.
"Oh no, no, I'm not in the group yet. No, I'm afraid I just blue myself."
Heard Poogi is considering taking a greyshirt with Alabama
Nah, they're saving that for Ty Issac.
No one knows what Poggi is considering. The latest thing to pop up on the Bama boards was that Poggi was offered a grey-shirt and would get a full scholly if Bama doesn't get their #1 targets. The Poggi's haven't commented on anything so no one really knows what he's actually thinking of doing.
Any sources for this?? Just seems unlikely he would take a greyshirt anywhere.
Wow. Some people believe anything they read.
The swag is back.
If the coaches don't Perdue him, it's either because they feel our LB situation is fine how it is, or they're avoiding the whole drama situation around him. Plus, doesn't UM not have his desired major?
Aren't we pretty well-stocked as far as linebackers go?
Bama pulls top 3 classes basically every year.
Saban grinds to assemble great classes against some tough (and dubious) programs and sells the "play in the biggest games and become NFL ready".
I don't want him at UM, but his recruiting and winning dynasty is impressive.
"Everybody wants to be a hero, so to speak. But it takes everybody." - Charles Woodson
Winning 3 national championships in 4 years= top recruiting classes
Or top recruiting classes = winning 3 national championships in 4 years?
dumpster fire by destroying its league, and sending its arch rival to the SEC where they will out-recruit tu every year.
Et tu, tu?
Abort, Retry, Fail?
Seems like good news for Poggi. However, I won't stop panicking until he faxes in his LOI.
Full-on Decatur Clan. Whatever happens, GO BLUE!
I thought this kid was going to play OT at UT? Are we sure he’s going to play DE at Bama?
Also I thought Bama was recruiting Poggi to play H Back/ TE? Saban’s two gap 3-4 would be a horrible fit for him. He’s a one gap player.
A'Shawn? These names get weirder and weirder
"What" ain't no country I ever heard of. They speak English in What?
I really really really fucking hate Alabama.
That is all.
The Team, The Team, The Team
