Talk about sucking all the oxygen out of the room. It’s not just that ‘Bama has dominated recruiting in the SEC West. Most of the programs out there haven’t even managed to perform at a level commensurate with what they’ve pulled in. I can give something of a pass to Ole Miss because of circumstances, but Auburn and Texas A&M clearly haven’t been pulling their relative weight.
Again, Saban deserves some of the credit for the way the numbers are skewed, but you’d think with the West generally being considered to be the SEC’s superior division, some of those records would look a little healthier from feasting on cross-divisional games.
