    Re: Early NSD Eve Thoughts

    We will still have a really good class, but Kirby is beating Saban head to head in recruiting. Whether that translates to wins on the field, I don’t know. But they’ve gotten very close twice.

    The problem of course is that that is completely irrelevant to us looking at whether we won our recruiting battles today...

    Recruiting battles only matter on the field. Therefore fretting over losing a kid is irrelevant if it doesn’t translate. Save your worries for later

    When it does not pay off on the field and Kirbyís lies about PT are seen, he will tail off. Besides, recruiting classes should be re-evaluates 2-3 years down the road. Look at BAMAís 2015 and 2016 classes. Half of the 2015 class either transferred, were tossed or have not been starters. Same thing for the 2016 class. Even our 2017 class, which folks drool over, looks like it will have 10-12 who are busts/transfer.

    Yes it sucks not being #1?but, at the end of the day Saban will do what he does so well, adapt and move on. I can also imagine Kirby, who is becoming a bigger dirt bag by the minute, dirty recruited big time and used the rumors of Pete, Gattis leaving coupled with BAMA is gonna have a new OC to his advantage.

    Is it negative recruiting? Is it not making promises from the get go?

    Re: Early NSD Eve Thoughts

    You don’t make promises to recruits. That’s exactly what got Kirby in trouble with Fields and probably Luke Ford as well. Doesn’t help your culture once they get on campus.

    My uninformed opinion is that people want to topple the giant. It could be promises though.
