    Re: DE / ATH Robert Nkemdiche Updates

    If I could impart my accumulated wisdom to the young man, which of course is impossible to do, he would not go where his girlfriend enrolls.
    I guess maybe if she went to Bama then it would work out OK. Otherwise it won't.

    I completely agree, but I would still love to see what he could do in that Crimson jersey.

    I don't see where anyone said we wouldn't still win. He may be the top recruit in the country. This is a recruiting board.

    Given how few post he has, I can see how BET might be surprised how often people talk about recruiting on a recruiting thread.

    It sure would make it A LOT easier to reach those totals with him on board.

    the insatiable desire to improve is what makes champions champions. So, I don't see anything wrong with drooling over top recruits. yeah we'll probably win 11+ games without him... Heck we'll probably win another national title without him, but why be good when you can be great? and why be great when you can be legendary?

    It's not the drooling over recruits part that gets out of hand, but when folks act like a Robert Nkemdiche or a Jaboo Winston or a Keenan Allen type recruit will make or break the team. While all three are great athletes, none of them, or any other athlete that has caused one of the meltdowns, will determine the future of the Alabama Crimson Tide. When people act as though their lives depend on where a player signs or if a team should ever play football again because Player W didn't commit/sign with their school, the board gets ridiculous. That is what BET, others and myself get annoyed with. Folks feel the need to post because Player W tweeted that he farted in class, which obviously means he's not coming to Bama; that is when the recruiting process gets out of hand.

    With all due respect, I see folks wanting to win recruiting battles just as much as they do the games. I don't see many folks tying the fate of the program to individual players.

    I agree here and have said the same thing many a times with regards to certian recruits. Yes the players you mentioned would be great additions to our program but we will be fine without them. UA is not about 1 player it is about a team. People need to understand a program that recruits at our current level will miss on far more than we will sign. For every 5 star we sign we will probably miss on 10 more that many feel we have a legit shot at. The nature of the beast at this level.

    Re: DE / ATH Robert Nkemdiche Updates

    I don't think anyone has associated one recruit being the end of the dynasty in college football for any program but when you follow recruiting heavily like some you get emotionally invested in certain recruits that you think your program has a good chance at getting and when it doesn't happen some get upset. I don't think they see the end of winning days but they are upset. BTW... Nkemdiche is going to get great in UA
