    • I have not heard a lot about William Green lately and we may have actually cooled a bit on him.
    WOW... thanks for the update RTO... if we're cooling on guys like Green and Jordan.. i guess that tell you what the coaching staff feels about our current commits... which can only be a good sign but i sure would hate to lose those two to another SEC school.. especially Green since it looks like Jordan may be headed to Clemson if not Bama...

    I think we should be able to give out like 35 schollies! lol...

    That's exactly what I thought too.

    Who was the knucklehead that asked a few weeks ago why Reggie Ellis would want to go to Illinois since their coach didn't know how to coach?


    Looks in mirror.



    Oh yeah, that was me. Shows what I know. The Zooker is looking like a coach these days.

    To anyone in the know:

    What is the status of QB, are we done? Every week I see Casey Kelly's stats and wish we had room for 1 more QB. Our rep in Sarasota is a HS back judge and says the kid is better than Robert Marve by a long shot.

    To piggyback on your question ... I've wondered if our recent QB struggles have made the coaches feel a little less "set" at that position for the near future ... and what are the chances we go after another signee?

    We don't have the room, plus we feel really good about getting a great one in 2009. Kelly also may be a pro baseball prospect.

    If we get Star this year and McCarron next year, then I think the staff will be pretty happy with where we sit at QB.

    you are right. i think AJ McCarron is a definite Tide commit. i think he's been a long-time bama fan so he's a shoo-in to tuscaloosa.
