    Bama Baseball signs Top 10 Class

    Bohannon going to work. Hopefully all these guys make it onto campus. The #1 SS and #6 overall player has not signed yet and would think he signs a contract.

    10th in the nation equals 6th in the SEC, as Florida (1), Vanderbilt (2nd), LSU (3rd), Mississippi State (6th), and Auburn (9th), all were ranked ahead of the Tide. Texas A&M is ranked 12th, giving the SEC seven of the top 12 classes in the nation.
    SMH. Steep hill to climb, but I think we have the right coach to lead the way.

    Lily (age 6): Daddy, I know what I want to be when I grow up: an artist.
    Bodhi (internally groaning): Yeah? What kind of artist?
    Lily: A balloon animal artist!

    Steep hill, but it'll be easier to climb if we're signing classes in the top half of the SEC instead of 12-14 (and hopefully getting them on campus)

    We can work with that and begin turning this thing around.

    When I played D1 a long time ago the studs got tuition, room and books and had to get their own food (75% basically) and this was rare. My nephew plays at UNA and they give him a check and he applies it to whatever. I really don't know how it is now done at SEC schools.

    They really need to fix this makes no sense not to give out at least 20 full scholarships.

    Current NCAA rules mandate schools can award 11.7 scholarships. They can be divided between a maximum of 27 players, with all players on athletic scholarship having to receive a minimum of a 25% scholarship. The 11.7 figure is valued on in state tuition. Therefore, an out of state kid awarded 25% is really getting like 10%.

    If BAMA would give in state tuition to all scholarship recipients like UGA and several other lottery state schools, we’d be able to compete more.

    I know a couple of years ago Goff gave 2 kids 100% and one was an out of state kid. So basically that kid took the $$$ equal to about 2.25 of our 11.7.

    I understand Title IX and the good it has done. However, it also hurt men’s athletes who are not football players. Women’s Gymnastics gets 12 full scholarships, women’s basketball gets 15 vs 12 for men. IMO, baseball should jump to 18 and level the playing field by telling teams like UGA, if you give an athlete in state, you must give every student in state.
