Cat fight!

Best of the SEC Blogs notes a recent dustup between Brian Cook (he of Mgoblog and AOL Fanhouse) and two ‘Bama bloggers over Nick Saban’s very large, very highly rated 2008 recruiting class.

The origin of the spat is an article about the size of the Tide’s class and the roster moves facing Saban to comply with 85/25 limits. Brian riffs off that combined with some irritation he feels over the criticism that’s been recently directed Rich Rodriguez’s way – none of which has anything to do with oversigning, which makes its inclusion in his post puzzling, to say the least – to go on a diatribe about honoring the 25 man limit in deed as well as in word.

Needless to say, ‘Bama fans are a bit sensitive about harsh words sent in Saban’s direction.

I’m not sure who’s gonna get the last word in all of this, but it should be noted that it’s not the first time Cook has slammed oversigning in the South.

UPDATE: You had to figure an Auburn blogger would want to get his two cents in. Jerry at The Joe Cribbs Car Wash makes some honorable points (which means that he’s being somewhat critical of Saban). But don’t miss the update at the end of his post.
