    This made me smile:

    The Crimson Tide signed 10 players ranked a perfect 10.0 on the NARCAS rating scale, one more than a year ago. Alabama’s class carried an overall ranking of 9.84, one of the highest ever recorded in NARCAS’ 16-year span of tracking recruiting, but slightly lower than last year’s 9.86 average.
    One of the highest EVER... but, um, not quite as high as last year's.

    Man, it's great being a Bama fan
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    Could someone please explain the NARCAS rating scale? I've never seen it referenced anywhere but Tidefans/JessN, and I have no clue what it means or what goes into it. Thanks

    One thing that really jumps out at me is that CNS believes we have enough depth to use a schollie on a long snapper. Of course, he is right.

    Jess, what makes you think A'Shawn plays DL? Can't he play either side of the ball?

    According to my initial dyslexic reading, it meant NASCAR, which got me more confused than a termite in a yo-yo.

    Hey Jess,

    You said that Carson Tinker decided to forego next season......do long snappers/special team only players usually do that? Did he grade out good enough to depart for a possible NFL career? For some reason I thought he was a graduating senior. thanks!

    Im pretty sure he used up his eligibility too, but I may be wrong.

    Well, after 24 hours, my guess is that no one here really knows what it is.

    According to the roster we had at the beginning of last season, Tinker was a RS junior in 2012. However, I notice the rolltide.com roster now has five years of participation listed for him (one redshirt year, one squad year, three playing years), so it appears he did exhaust his eligibility. I will refrain from my soapbox about rolltide.com rosters. (g) But I will edit the article to reflect the change.
