Doubt it with the playoff coming. Y'all wouldn't have beat a unbeatable OSU team this year.
Alpha sux at trolling.
Haven't said anything that was true. OSU was unbeatable this year and over signing helps the SEC. When you have a larger talent pool and can weed out guys. It helps.
Did you see that outside the lines story on how LSU and Bama cuttin guys?
So they give kids that will never play anyway a free ride for the rest of their career, and they still get to hang around a top football team and wear their jerseys on the sidelines? In what universe is that a bad thing?
Lmao, yea right. Bums lost to a team that Louisville beat. Get real. Like I said, OSU 12-0== unbeatable.
Nobody could beat OSU. Just like 2002 when we barely beat bad teams then beat one of the best teams ever.
You can ask Jarvis Jones why SoCal's doctors wouldn't clear him and he turned into a badass at UGA.
I'm ok with everything we do as long as it's within the rules. We have won 3 out of 4 championships and will be right there for another one next year. You can't tell me you wouldn't be in favor of OSU over signing if it led to that kind of success.
Not if we have a competitive advantage like that. All things definitely not equal. It's cool tho. That's why it's referred as the MNC.
Not this crying crap again
Bama hasn't had a medical hardship in three years and Bama averages three transfers a year for the last four years. Last time I checked, the Fighting Heart-attacks had just as many.
Ohio St. fans should be thanking Saban and Alabama, instead of bitching and moaning. He's the only reason why Urban is currently your coach. Did Urban win two Natty's while at UF? Yes. However, won one before Saban arrived and his second in Nick's second year, while Bama drastically over-achieved in year two. Saban dominated Urban's best UF team in year three and Meyer saw the writing on the wall, hence the heart-attack. When Saban dominated his ass the very next season, Urban knew he wasn't going to win the SEC like he had before Saban got there. Congrats on having a leader that runs away at the first sign of adversity.
So on behalf of Alabama and Nick Saban, you're welcome.

Or like Notre Dame that barely beat bad teams and then got embarrassed on national TV
That buttocks....it hurts.
This always cracks me up. Urban is 1-1 vs. Saban. You people act like Saban has beaten him repeatedly and Urban just couldn't take it any more. Meyer just needed to get his life back together, and that had nothing to do with NIck.
Does Sumlin own Saban just because he beat him once?
Posts like this crack me up, especially when they're wrong. Saban is 2-1 vs Urban and beat him 63-19 in the last two games. Muschamp was stuck cleaning up Heart-attacks's at UF last season.
I don't ignore it, I embrace it.
Keep the studs, cut the scrubs
Here are the numbers. Go ahead and spin them anyway you like.
Over the past five years Bama signed 142 players.
Here's what some other schools signed during the same period...
ND, 106 (36 less than Bama)
Florida, 109 (33)
Georgia, 110 (32)
Ohio State, 113 (29)
LSU, 125 (17)
We are not Notre Dame. The Ohio State University is a whole different beast. Come on now.
12-0 speaks for itself.
Exactly.... Thanks for keeping it real. It gives Bama the advantage which should be put out there.
One thing for sure, we're kicken y'all ass and the SEC isn't near as good without oversigning. But at least you admit it which I gotta show you some love for.
Fair enough. I forgot Urbs was still at Florida in 2010. That was a pretty bad Florida team in general, so it's not surprising Bama throttled them.
Lulz at you thinking you can beat us
Yes it does. Next question.
I just wanted to quote you, so if tOSU fans missed it the first time, they wouldn't the second time around.
CUM is a quitter.
Saban is 2-1 against CUM. The last two meetings were beat downs, and Tebow cried.
How many of those players made it on campus and actually enrolled? LULZ for using five years.

But...but...the REC controls the NCAA
