    Can’t be too hard on Junior for this one. Richt did something very similar by mentioning Josh Harvey-Clemons on TV before the LOI arrived.

    Saban is such an a-hole. He has the nerve to demand Taylor give him an answer b/c he “wanted to go after some other people”.

    And why is that so urgent anyway? He already knew he wasn’t going to sign Taylor this year. How would his decision on next year impact Alabama’s class this year?

    Not a single O-lineman in Tennessee’s class? Dayyum. Whatever happened to Lacey Pearl Earps and the other hostesses?

    Senator, may I recommend this article on top recruit DBG. Take note of the characterizations of the coaches and OU’s staff: http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefootball/story/Dorial-Green-Beckham-inside-the-chase-for-nations-top-recruit-020112?m_n=true

      Great read and thanks. The data and presentation lets you know how zany (and sometimes innocent) events occur during recruiting. No eye-openers, but the human interest side is compelling. The dignity of the family is captured as well as honesty of some coaches thought not-so-honest at times. The underseam of recruiting flows right through the article as well. It would have appeared well alongside human interest articles written by New York Times writers.

    I prefer not to throw stones from inside the glass pocket.

    Words I never want to read on this blog again: “In Tech’s defense…”

    Gee. Stanford signed some big O-linemen. I wonder if any of them can pass, catch or run with the ball, too. It might take another year or two but look for Stanford to fall back to earth with a thud now that Coach Harbaugh is gone and Luck is a pro. Besides, they never even won their conference. Talk about being over-hyped.

      Yeah, but with a line like that (where the QB can do his homework after the snap) you don’t need Luck. All you need is a running back who can walk forward upright.

    We all know why Clem$on didn’t sign any GA talent this year. They $pent all their energy last year on $ammy Watkin$…
