This is what I had in mind but since i have been [drinking]
No time to bicker... only time for shots
"I Am The One Who Knocks.." - WW
Then Alabama should be the answer. 3 BCS titles in a row leaves no doubt.
Means nothing. Put a list together of a starting lineup of all players from any university in alabama. Compare that to a starting lineup of a team full of florida university, california university, or texas university all stars.
I don't drink. Outside of Pouncey(who was born in Oklahoma), there isn't a current NFL or college OLineman from Florida who is starting or seeing significant time on the California or Texas teams. Currently UF, FSU, and Miami have absolutely deplorable offensive lines and the one halfway decent QB between the three is from Virginia. USC alone has a top 3(nationally) QB and OL, not to mention pretty decent skill players(all from California). Outside of Seantrel Henderson(from Minnesota), is there a single player on offense from any of the Florida Big 3 who is seeing the field at USC?
QB? would you like Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Matt Barkley, Drew Brees, Andrew Luck, RGIII or....? Don't know about you, but I like my football teams to have a QB and offensive line. The discrepancy between Cal/Tex and Florida in QB/OL talent is way way way way way way way bigger than the discrepancy between Florida and Cal/Tex skill position talent.

Wait the statement was "Combine the best players from each school in your state " In your case (Bama).
We know your the best at the moment but where do most of your players come from?
31 from your state:
I guess the rest come from?
QB - Andrew Luck - Stanford
RB - Curtis McNeal - USC
TE - Colby Fleener - Stanford
OL - Matt Kalil - USC
OL - David DeCastro - Stanford
OL - Khaled Holmes - USC
OL - Mitchell Schwartz - Cal
OL - Jonathan Martin - Stanford
WR - Robert Woods - USC
WR - Marqise Lee - USC
WR - Keenan Allen - Cal
DE - Nick Perry - USC
DT - Aaron Tipoti - Cal
DT - George Uko - USC
DE - Ben Gardner - Stanford
LB - Mychael Kendricks - Cal
LB - Chase Thomas - Stanford
LB - Dion Bailey - USC
CB - Isiah Wiley - USC
S - TJ McDonald - USC
S - Delano Howell - Stanford
CB - Nickell Robey - USC

Replace Moala and Uko with Aaron Tipoti and Juicy Harris, maybe Wes Horton with Ben Gardner from Stanford. That team is absolutely DESTROYING the Florida squad.

I can respect that answer.
I will get back to you on that one though. I need to do some research.
I feel its unsafe to post unfactual info when drunk.
Matt Barkley feels slighted by this depth chart and he's signing as an unrestricted free agent with team Florida.
Right forgot about Tipoti, but I think Uko is better than Juicy right now.
Crazy how offensive heavy that squad is though.
Lmao only if you give us Timmy J in return Andrew.
I tried to get a Bruin on there but couldn't. Owa maybe? Damn.
Owa is a bust as of now. If Datone Jones doesn't get injured, he is the one replacing Horton.
If it is players at a school in your state, I'd say Cal then Texas. After that, maybe Florida.
If you go back to 2010's rosters though, I'd put a Bama/Auburn combo over the state of Florida in the #3 spot easily.
Cam, Ingram, and Trent in the same backfield. The OL would be crazy as well. Fairly and Dareus lining up together on the DL.
11 first round draft picks after this draft on that team would be tough.
This is what I was thinking as well. Also the team has to be coached to win. Texas would have problems as well as Florida.
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
-George Petrie (1945)
Not really getting into coaching, but don't forget about a few UNA guys that could be put on that team as well. Jenkins could possibly make it 12 first rounders.
You're asking for at best a push. The real determinant is who's doing the coaching. If your answer isn't Bama, I'd like to hear your argument vs. Saban + talent.
"[Desert Tider is] not appropriate at all, but everyone wasn't raised well." --BamaJan
Top three of Fla, Cali and Texas. No question about it.
No, no its not. I'd like to see how your defense is going to stop Andrew Luck going Peyton Manning on Saban's defense at the LOS, then throwing to three 1st round WR's and a 1st round TE behind a wall of 1st round offensive linemen. What are you going to press and play man? Cloud like Luck won't read your safeties? Play eight in the box? Disguise your blitzes?
That offense doesn't need a coach when Luck reads your defense on every play. Luck was created by the best coach in CFB bar none in Jim Harbaugh, and if you think Saban is better than him you are out of your mind.
What is AJ McCaron going to shred the secondary? Lmao your best offensive weapon is a running back, which is dime a dozen. You can find RB's anywhere.
This has to be the most retarded post I've ever seen.
First of all, they stopped the Florida vs Cali HS games after Fl mopped the floor with Cali like 7 of 9 years or something.
Second of all...maybe you should go look at all the Florida OL that get drafted. You might be surprised.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
Saban's coaching would be immensely degraded if we disallowed him over signing the best players from OOS.
This simulation eliminates recruiting.
No it doesn't. Its just combining all universities in a state into one. He can recruit, but he sure as hell doesn't have a talent advantage.
Negative. In case you missed SportsCenter ust this morning, it featured Chucky exposing Luck's ability to check down. Therefore, take your 3 1st round WR's & 1st round TE to one each per readable play. All your following points are without point. IOW, pointless.
Not sure where you're getting your "wall of 1st rd OL," but Bama pretty much has that on its own.
Harbaugh has shown awesomeness at developing QB's, so I won't specify him in pointing out the rest of the team's need of development in your...argument.
When you look at last year's draft and a mock draft it gives us a small hint. Sure, it doesn't give you a starting lineup, but it does tell you how many top quality football players comes from each state's schools.
Although Alabama schools are loaded with more top talent than the other 3 (11 1st rounders to Texas having 6, Florida 2, and Cal 7 and 15 1st and 2nd rounders to Texas 11, Florida 7, and Cal 11), the other schools in the other states add more depth in the later rounds.
It is a closer than I expected though.
