You can keep your shirt on.

Let me share one more amusing note on recruiting that I came across today.

Perhaps you remember TE recruit Brian Vogler’s tale of crunk regarding the happenings on Tennessee’s Junior Day.  Something about coaches’ shirts coming off ring a bell?  It’s an event Vol fans have pumped up as an example of the energy and good times that Junior and Coach O are bringing back to Knoxville.  After all, everybody knows one of the most certain ways to attract top recruits to a program is to get them all excited about shirtless coaches.

Well, Vogler committed today.

Tight end Brian Vogler (Columbus, Ga./Brookstone) has committed to Alabama over Oklahoma. He made his announcement during a noon press conference at his high school.

“My decision came down to Alabama and Oklahoma and I am committing to the Alabama Crimson Tide,” Vogler said in a prepared statement.

No doubt it’s all part of the plan.

    You fools! Vogler’s commit to Bama was but a ruse to distract from Kiffin’s next major move! Everything is going exactly as he has foreseen it! BWAH, HA HA HA HA!


  3. Brookstone sux!

    My apologies, after 25 years, that is still me reaction.

    the strong rumor was that Vogler was going to pretend it was down to OU and Bama, but at the last second, he was going to pull off his shirt and reveal a big orange T painted on his chest.

    It almost worked, Lane. It almost worked.

    The real question is what did Saban take off to land the commitment?

    From the looks of it right now and considering who they are taking, it doesn’t look like UT is gonna clean up in recruiting this year. But, they did pretty good last year late. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
