    One issue with the article - L8U has lost eight in a row, not six.

    There's a negative vibe to the article. It's perhaps written in the subtext -- but there is a "Bama will do whatever it takes to win" -- but it's not presented as a "good thing". At least that's my perception of the article.

    Lot's of anonymous quotes -- never seems to sit right with me.

    I disagree. I read it as here's a program that has done everything to make a successful program. Perhaps first and foremost, they have trusted CNS, given him total control of the program and all the resources he needs to make the program successful. That bodes well for the future. There is a successful system now in place, not just one successful individual.

    Gotta agree with you here. The title says it all:

    "Alabama’s dynasty will never really be over

    After one of the Tide’s highest-rated recruiting classes ever, it’s clear their dominance goes way beyond Nick Saban."

    After re-reading, I get your point when it went into the BOT and power structure biz.

    Spencer is a Michigan fan. You gotta expect some degree of sour grapes. I think it is more convincing coming from a fan of another program having to watch this happening. No homerism here.

    It is what it is, but it's not negative. Not one fan base in all the land would turn down the option to be Bama right now.

    You are right. He is a Gator and his colleague is the Michigan guy. But he is not a Tide fan.
