When Brian first brought to light Saban's Alabama over-recruiting, I, like most, vociferously criticized Saban, for al the reasons we know. But after reading Misopogon's wonderful series, and given that for whatever reason we seem to have a higher than average attrition rate that is only continuing, the question I pose is, should we partially re-evaluate this position? I mean, for years we've recruited fewer players than we needed, and more left than we could afford. I sure wish we could add a couple of guys to this years class--that is if the recent struggles haven't turned off any prospects.
