    Rivals "Signing Day's winners and losers" but no Bama

    Ok, tell me what I'm missing here. Alabama just signed the #1 Rivals.com college football recruiting class, yet Rivals (via writer "Dallas Jackson") publishes an article entitled "Signing Day's winners and losers," that doesn't even mention Alabama. Auburn, Ole Miss, and TAM are listed as "winners," but not Alabama. I hope Alabama wins a NC in every year remaining in Nick Saban tenure at Alabama, just to further gall the national sports writers.

    He is missing something. My only thought to why would be we are accustomed to being the #1 class so he does not call that a winner.

    Same reason Coach Saban wasn't named Coach of the Year after winning his third national title in four years. It's expected.

    We're in a class of our own.

    We're expected to do well and we did. I'll take it. I wouldn't care so much about what some people on Rivals think. They've said Auburn's had good recruiting classes for many years, but obviously they were dead wrong

    ETA: At this point, we can only be disappointing or stay at the same level. There's really no improvement that can be made in our program.

    Most of the Auburn classes in the last 10 years looks good on paper. The problem with the barn is that by the fall, most of their commits are either in jail/ academic casualties/transfers or just didn't panned out. It's been that way down on the plains since Tubbs. I don't expect anything to change under Gus.

    Matters not -- just be satisfied with the knowledge that it is Alabama and then the rest of DIV 1.

    It is just an average year at Alabama; another national championship, another number one recruiting class.

    The way I see it, they'll learn one way or another.

    Perhaps he is implying that the winners are winners because this recruiting class will raise them to a higher level. Not sure that is possible with Alabama, but if it is...

    I still think we can go to a higher level of playing. We could beat TAMU and improve over last year. Until we get to the point that no one can score on us and we score every time we get the ball and all our seniors get drafted in the 1st round, we can still improve. That is what CNS is probably shooting for.

    That about sums it up, although I believe that CNS would take you to task concerning your last sentence (even though we know that as we speak it`s true).

    It's hard to be considered this years "winner" when you do this every year. It's status quo...our status is just better then the rest.
