Over the last four years Alabama signed more then 40 more players the Notre Dame. Keep the best and cut the rest seems like a plausible explanation for domination.
Does it feel that good knowing your winning with a stacked hand?

How many more underclassmen left early for the NFL?
How is it ignorant? Oversigning is a problem, and it does nothing but hurt the kids that get "processed".
It's ignorant when 40 isn't the difference in the last 4 years. We have signed 105, ND has signed 81. This is including resigns for Bama...Quinton Dial signed in 2009 and 2011 because he didn't qualify. same for Belue(2010 and 2012). We also have had at least a dozen players leave early for the Draft, we have had several JUCO guys who were 2 year guys, and we had a player die before playing a single game. Simply ignoring circumstances makes one ignorant.
The numbers always work out.
List of cut players, please.
I'll wait here because I ask for it in every oversigning thread and no one ever comes up with anything.
The one thing I wish the NCAA would do is make all teams obey the same recruiting rules, and not just the 85 limit, I mean everything including a yearly limit and how EE's work. I don't blame the SEC for working within the rules, if the other conferences don't want to do that stuff, fine, but lets take away the choice and even out the playing field, to an extent.
Sorry, not sure why I quoted you.

What about the medical hardships.
Bama just magically has way, way more of them than any other program in the country?
Oh, I forgot. They practice really hard.
There is no list of "cut" players because there are multiple ways to cull a roster.
The one thing I'll give you Dev, that's the one question I want the real answer to. How can one school have that many more medical hardships?
They practice really hard, bro.
What's the problem with medical hardships? The kids get to keep their scholarship and continue school while not playing football. More schools should do it.The unethical thing to do would be to toss them on the street and be done with it. Does Saban put a gun to their head and make them sign the waiver?
Nothing wrong with medical hardships. The question becomes, why does Bama have so many more? Like I said above, that's the thing that makes me pause, maybe it's bad luck and a 100% legit.
No. He tells them they will never play football at Alabama ever again, regardless if the injury may be career ending or not.
If these kids want a degree from Alabama they have absolutely no choice but to accept the waiver.
Accepting the waiver ends their collegiate athletic career forever. But hey, like you say, at least they aren't tossed out on the street.
They practice really hard, bro.
Mr. Kent St Alum---Are you in the office when all this happens or the kids call you right away to act like you know so much?
Bama can't give a medical hardship...only the NCAA can grant that. If someone has a problem with that rule, they shoudl take it up with the NCAA. They are the only authority for approving it. The onyl person that can initiate it is the player and it must be validated by a Medical Professional.
I honestly don't know why this isn't used more often by programs. There are kids who deserve to be on scholarship who aren't in a position to play football ever again. Does anyone really object to Tyrone Protho getting a medical hardship scholly? There are others that might be less known and their injuries not as severe but they qualify and it releases them from their obligation to football and alows them to complete their education. Oh the horror!!
That medical "professional" was employed by Alabama. There's no NCAA oversight in regard to reviewing the particular case. Basically, the NCAA rubber stamps it.
Or maybe, Bama just practices really hard.

No, you're right.
Bama just magically has way, way more medical hardships than anyone else in the country.
I'm not saying you're wrong, but don't ever use the NCAA to validate something is legit, nothing is more crooked than they are.
The whining that Bama does this and Bama does that its not fair gets really old. Dont worry, coach Urbs is just getting warmed up on how he opperates. Question--so when Urbs got to Ohio, why were there kids all of a sudden leaving or transfering or something? I guess god didnt speak to him about them???
And why do you care so much? Shouldnt you be worrying about the "Golden Flashes"?
God OSU fans are horrible. I pray we get to play them next year but I know they'll end up losing to some shit team like Purdue.
So are you saying that underclass man shouldn't be able to leave for the pros or transfer for playing time? In most cases attrition is about a player realizing he's not going to see the field much and he leaves.

I see where the OP has disappeared from this thread. Making his ass quit!
Ohio state was unbeatable. You scrubs lost to A&M.. Urban would have gave those bums work.
Braxton would run circles on Bama just like Manziel.
He honored all the scholarships from the class he inherited.
Guys left who wasn't a fit for his style. nick is still running guys off to make room.
Regardless, if you scrubs sign 25 or less every year. The ride is over. We're going to win titles on the level playing field. Y'all def wouldn't want to see Brax if we weeded guys out and kept the best.
Must be the hardest sprints ever lol.
