    So yes us winning it last year did prevent LSU from doing it.

    So his pitch sould be,,,, " if you come here, in four years there's an outside chance you could be in the first Alabama class I've ever had NOT to win the championship.
    Long odds but,,, anything can happen.

    Re: How's this for a powerful recruiting argument and that no other program can make.

    Someone count up how many years straight we will have a team with someone on it with a national championship ring. I'm confusing myself. You can take a 5th year Sr. in 09 and go back to his true freshman year and go forward to this year's redshirted freshmen's Sr. year. I think. That's quite a few years straight with teams with someone sporting a national championship ring.

    You can probably file this under dumb stats...but I thought it was interesting.
    I've read the end of The Book and I know who wins!

    No other teams 2011 class could have won a national championship since we won it this year, therefore as of now we are the only team in the nation that could make the claim that everyone of our recruiting classes has won a national title. That was my point.

    Still an awesome thought. But at this point I'm not sure how much selling he has to do about or on field performance, that speaks for itself. Heisman winner, finalist, Butkus winner, two finalists, Outland Trophy winner, Thorpe finalist, All Americans all over the place, Doak Walker winner, 2 National Championships, 3 out of 4 BCS bowl games. All Saban has to do is explain why he wants them and how they fit in with what he wants to do, then make them feel comfortable with the support they will get in Ttown and it would be hard for many kids to turn down.

    I expect this years class to be sporting rings before they leave Bama as well.

    Only 9 combine invites is embarrassing. Still embarrassed by 21-0 too. Anything short of 25-0 is like a loss.

    if i recall correctly, since Coach Saban started coaching in the SEC, no other coach has had as many 1st round draft picks than he has.
