Junior’s new sales pitch

Come to FAU, or as he refers to it, the University of Alabama Lite.

In fact, Kiffin expects to use Love’s time at Alabama working under head strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran as one of his recruiting pitches.

“To me now when you come to FAU, you’re getting Alabama’s program,” he said. “As a high school kid you’re saying ‘Okay I want to go to Alabama, but I don’t have an Alabama offer,’ I can go there and get the same training to prepare me for the NFL and prepare me for my college seasons.”

Hey, if he sells that to recruits who never actually get an invite to step foot on Alabama’s campus to compare, who knows?  It might work.  At least it’s a more positive message than warning them about alternate careers if they don’t choose to play for him.

    He will not see too many 4 and 5 star recruits without the Bama offer. I guess he wants to coach up the 3 star guys.

    The sad thing? It’ll probably work. And I imagine he won’t have to worry about pissing off the donors by putting up pictures of all the talent he coached at other places like he did at UT.

    Lot of attractive options between Bama and Florida Atlantic. Guys in Florida grew up watching the FSU, FU, and Miami programs on their home screens and have heard their friends and relatives speak of them all their lives. Junior ain’t that good of a salesman but he will get some tasty crumbs that fall through the cracks. If he can put up a couple of decent seasons quickly, he will be leaving them for brighter lights quickly, imo. I think he has matured enough, but he needs quick success to not get lost in the shuffle.
