    Looks Like Alabama Won't Have the No. 1 Class. Does anyone care?

    I just checked Rivals and, because USC has had a monster day, they are now ahead of us by 32 points in the rankings.
    I'm just curious if this bothers anyone.

    Doesn't bother me, because I can go over to 247sports and see that we are still #1

    No. I've paid little attention to recruiting this year compared to previous years. Actually my interest in recruiting has been waning for the past few years. I'd much rather win a NC in early January than in early February.

    Slightly bothered by not getting another OT or TE that we wanted, but to complain would be silly considering another group that is loaded with talent and easily among the nations' best. Keyword: slightly.

    Consensus instead of unanimous...

    and at the end of the day (as the young people say), you still have to go out and play. All of this projecting is just that.

    Almost better not to be number 1 in recruiting. Fight harder next year.

    Thanks SJC. We obviously can say we had the #1 class. I appreciate that info and interesting to note the Barn moved up to #2 on Scout and the other services have them in the 6-9 range.

    It's a beauty pageant. As long as we finish in the top five, heck even the top ten, we're getting excellent talent.

    That's not really interesting - certainly not surprising in the least - considering the people involved with that site.

    You pretty much nailed it. People have pretended for a while that the talent gap between say Alabama, and Auburn, Florida, etc... was massive. As I said after the Florida game, it's not! They have been getting a lot of top tier recruits, Alabama might get a couple that are higher rated or what not, but in the end that might mean nothing. It reminds me of someone trying to explain the Alabama and Ohio State talent game, what it came down to was a couple 5 star recruits basically. That alone doesn't mean all that much.

    It's been proven that you need good classes to win championships, but if you're hanging around the top ten you'll have the talent pool required, the rest of coaching and really luck, just because a kid had the abilities doesn't mean he'll mature into a game changer.
