The same (or nearly the same ratio of signees applies to Bama/UGA. In fact, UGA started the season with 68 scholarship players. However, a tipped pass on the last play is the only reason ND was not playing UGA in the BCSNCG.
After the SEC's new signing max rules have had time to level the field, the SEC non-oversigners (UF/UGA) will be the national objects of derision. We are looking forward to it.

So you're signing 35 to catch up.

I am going to need to see the numbers showing that Bama has more medical hardships. Without numbers you are just talking out of your ass.
Aren't you a USC fan?
If so I guess the lovefest with Kiffin is over for you guys?
You might want to bump that thread. It's not on the front page b/c nobody GAF.
I don't know where this came from but whatever.
You might be the biggest fvcking crybaby on this entire site and that is saying something.
I used to think Auburn had the worst fan base but after visiting this board for over a year my opinion has changed.
OSU by far has the most delusional, ignorant fan base in all of college football. OSU plays in the weakest of the 4 big conferences yet they have managed to accomplish absolutely nothing in the past 10 years.
The MNC they won against Miami was the result of a horrid call by a ref and should not even count.
Yet their fans would lead you to believe they matter, that they are a threat to win a championship.
They are an average football team playing in the shittiest state in the union with the absolute worst fans.
My new order or worst fan bases after my time on TBB:
You absolutely did not see me make that argument. You have me confused. I'll make a one week ban bet with you that you can't find me saying anything like that. Shouldn't be hard since it was just supposedly last night.
I also wasn't trying to argue with you. Why would I care about Lane Kiffin? We don't play USC and he's just not that good of a football coach. He's the least of my worries. I'm calling you a crybaby because you are constantly bitching about the SEC. I mean you don't even play us. It makes no sense.

I didn't pick up the sarcasm until your response to my question. It honestly doesn't bother me at all. Whatever floats your boat.

This article provides some numbers, just saw this for the first time a few days ago.
Here's the thing though, as some Bama fans have pointed out Saban hasn't had many, if any at all, medical hardships for a few years now. Frankly, I think he's cut back on stuff like that for two reasons. One, he doesn't need to b/c he's now got that program built into a well oiled machine, and two, he was starting to get criticized for it with articles like this, although I think the first point was the main reason.
What I would really like to see is the same recruiting rules across the board. First, every conference adopts the 4 year guaranteed scholarships with a few outs, such as a player getting into trouble and what not. From there I say you keep the 85 limit, and only allow a max of 25 commits per year, including early enrollee's with absolutely no wiggle room. And to curb this crap of taking more commits than you have room, I say you're also restricted to only accepting as many commits as you have room for. Wanna take a chance on a kid who might not qualify academically, that's fine but if that kid doesn't make it then to bad. Any level headed thoughts on my recruiting ideas?
Our team hits harder than others which results in more injuries.
Mane OSU is 6-3 in BCS bowls. We relevant dog.
Ironic that a Bama person is calling Ohio the shittiest state in the union.
The conference that is barely staying ahead of the ACC.
Good possibility. I do think Saban is as good as they come in identifying players for his system.
Northern Illinois could make a BCS bowl 9 times if it played in that sh*t conference. If Bama played in the Big 10 they would be undefeated and in the NC game every single year.
Lol purdue says hey.. Lol that tough schedule was so amazing. Luckily for the buckeyes Purdue can't stop a deep ball with just seconds on the clock. It's hilarious why weren't you guys able to play in a bowl game?
Hell at least we had John L Smith for an excuse you guys excuse is they cheat but are complaining about "over signing", even though the SEC has a 25 per year rule? If players go pro, transfer, quit, or get hurt why wouldn't a team be able to replace them? Oh the horror

The question is why not let them transfer to another school, even another SEC school, and play? Why are their choices only to sign the waiver or transfer and sit out?
Where do you guys get this bullshit?
You think they are ahead of the ACC? Big 10 2-5 in bowls this year. While the weak @$$ ACC was 4-2.
Big 10's two weakest bowl eligible teams at least won though. That top end of the conference is so good. 7-5 winning the conference makes that conference barely ahead of the Big East.
Doctor's cleared him. Coaches wouldn't.
LULZ, congrats on beating Purdue in OT and squeaking out a win vs Indiana.
Where do you people come up with this stuff? Did you not have a highly-recruited Bama signee on your roster this year that our staff allowed to transfer without obligation?
There were former Saban signees at multiple major schools this year that were allowed to transfer out, whether it was JUCO or straight to another college. Texas, Tennessee, Auburn, etc.
Yea but Northern Illinois couldn't win 6 of them
