I see we’re recycling one of Tuscaloosa’s greatest hits.
“It feels very calculated by Kirby Smart,” Suttles says. “It’s not the first time he’s done subterfuge with Alabama. He famously took a picture of their recruiting board when he left Alabama to work for Georgia and sent it to recruits to show them, hey, you’re not that high on Alabama’s recruiting board.”
Suttles mentioned how Alabama is in the middle of its Fourth Quarter program of offseason training, which was led by Cochran. He also noted how spring practices start soon.
You know, it’s hard to believe. After all, Kirby had a reputation for being one of the gentler souls on the recruiting trail when he worked the ‘Bama beat. It’s got to be a real shock for them to see such a different personality emerge once Nick stopped making him play nice.
Football recruiting, like politics, ain’t beanbag. Then again, I suspect the pearl clutchers already know that.
