Let’s see how that “Stick a fork in Nick Saban, he’s done” narrative did yesterday.
Oh, right. Bama finished with the No. 1 class, getting back to a perch it occupied seven years in a row before slipping slightly in 2018. The Tide lost two blue-chip commitments on Wednesday, and it didn’t come close to taking them out of the No. 1 ranking.
In particular, take a look at the defensive line class Alabama signed for 2019. It’s outrageously good. Overall, the Tide signed 27 kids and only one of them, a kicker, had fewer than
three four stars from the recruiting services.
All this in the face of a second straight year of enormous staff turnover. And it didn’t matter. Yeah, he’s really done.
