    Congratulations Again To My Bama Friends On Your Recruiting Class

    CNS pulled in another great class, he's got it going on all cylinders.


    ND had a strong class and this is the first time in over 10 years ND FINALLY has a full 85 kids on scholarship. So hopefully we will finally be able to get a good rotation of players the way you guys do.



    God Bless and good luck!

    Thank you, and congrats on your class also. I'm not so happy about Vandeross but win some lose some.

    Well, you guys win a LOT more than you lose that's for sure. I know ND is going hard after a few kids from Ga, for 2014. The Williams kid who has been up to ND twice on his own dime with a teammate we pulled in this year Rochell. We will have a good shot with him. The other is the Macmillen kid (I think that's his name) ILB who right now claims the Buckeyes are his leader. We'll see on him.

    College Football is a better sport when Alabama and Notre Dame are at the top. Congrats on your signing class

    Hope you stay warm and toasty up there in the northern realms. I am so glad we get over our winter cold in just a few days each year.

    Sorry you guys got Eddie V. as I think he is a winner. However, really happy with the class we signed. Many had been long time commits so there was no pomp and circumstance on their signing.

    That is wild that a major program went a decade without a full compliment of players. Speaks to the turmoil they've suffered previous to Kelly.

    It was Tyrone Willingham who by far was the WORST coach ND EVER had. Lazy at recruiting. When Weis took over from Willingham, there were only 65 kids on scholarship. Can you imagine? Self imposed "sanctions". There were years when Willingham recruited a total of 2 linemen, that's for BOTH offense AND defense. Now couple that with ND's policy of NOT taking JUCOS's, higher academic core requirements than the NCAA requires and it has taken this long. Willingham also ran Washington into the ground too after ND.


    Talk about a program's purgatory.

    Well, at least you don't do "Faustian bargains" any more.

    And I like to think Kelly showed his confessional bonafides in the BCS halftime interview - and Father-soon-to-be-living-Saint Saban gave him only a small penance for being forthright.

    Hoping for you that another high tide stays away from the Shore this weekend.

    You guys had monster O&D line class, you'll be looking good in a couple of years.

    Congratulations Again To My Bama Friends On Your Recruiting Class

    The class ND brought in was pretty good. However, you won't be consistent until you add depth. So you'll need good classes in the future. But it was a pretty good class to build things on. Congrats and thanks.


    BTW, 42-14...

    Raekwon McMillan - He is high on OSU right now, but with Saban now personally involved in his recruitment, we are worried. A long way to 2014 NSD.

    The state go Georgia is absolutely loaded -- again. Will be interesting to watch if UGA changes it's approach, and launches a more effective defense of its borders, now that The Prodigal Bagman has returned home.
