He did have solid recruiting but each year after the national championship they got worse with better talent. he started recking up bad losses. how bad do you have to be to have 3 conference losses in the ACC. His last year he had 5 conference losses With exceptional talent.
one player, one group of players. It does not make a difference. Just like with Ed Orgeron and Gene Chizik. They could coach for the next 30 years and never have the same success as they did that one year that it all came together.
I agree, I am not a big fan of Jimbo. He won at Florida state because of one player. Every year after was a little was a little worse than the year before with his last year being 5-6. I don't see Kirby or Nick letting that happen.
The last for classes are ranked as follows. 1, 8, 6, 4 in the nation according to the 247 composite. The average of those is 4.75 but that is not the same as 4 top 5 classes in a row.
Jalen Hurts for Alabama? 4 Heisman trophy winners, dozens of 1st round picks and Jalen is the most valuable guy? Pot must be legal in whatever state the author is from.
These are 4 teams without a real starting QB. They might by the end of the year. Bennett is the only one with experience and they won the title in spite of him, not because of him.
Dabo is a nice guy and a decent coach. He did however make a major tactical error with the transfer portal. Clemson has lost 30+- players to the portal and replaced them with O. He is trying to prove a point to recruits but it will not lead to better classes. They are in trouble for the foreseeable future with the only bright spot being an easy schedule that will allow them to appear good.
One of the changes that needs to be made is that there needs to be full accounting of all deals made. Jimbo is playing word games. They might not have signed but the deal is made.
Saban never should have called out individual coaches or schools. It is one of his few PR miss steps. Jimbo's issue is much deeper. He is trying to pretend that NIL did not make a difference in this years recruiting. He is like a guy who won a $280 million powerball lottery but is trying to convince the world that he has all of the money because he is a really good business man.
Cite one thing that is not true. Take one step back and look objectively at the situation. I have not once criticized A&M as a school or a football team. I did not accuse Jimbo of cheating. All I said is that they are not consistently at the top of football in either recruiting or in the standings. They only have 4 top five finishes in their history.
I know that A&M has deep pockets. They also have a fan base that is desperate to win a title before Texas can be "Back". Dont underestimate the size and financial resources of the old big Ten teams. Ohio state, Michigan and Penn state have had 65,000+ students for 50 years. Lots of CEO's. Lots of Business owners. Lots of money.
It is and average of 9 for the last 4 years. There is a massive jump from 9 to far and away the number 1 class ever. I don't think he cheated. He used NIL to secure a much better class than his on the field performance should have warranted. He should just own up to the fact. Saban isn't the only one who has said this. EVERYONE in college sports has said the same thing.

over the last 15 years their average was 14.8 with 5 top 10 finishes. That is consistent with lots of others schools who never came close to winning in either recruiting or a championship. Jimbo's performance on the field has been just above average other than the one year with Winston at FSU. He has a 34-14 record at A&M despite being the highest paid coach in history.
When it comes to perceptions in the football world A&M is a 2-3 tier program. They have never competed with the top level of programs. They are an extremely large school when it comes to enrollment. It is a very good school but it has traditionally lacked importance on the national stage. In other words "small time"
Texas A&M does not have better booster support they just have a lot more of them. Enrollment is massive at A&M. More than double that of Alabama. If you listed to what he said he was critical of the collective system. It is not sustainable. In that, he is correct. A&M won this year. How are you going to feel when big money schools like Texas, Ohio state, Penn State, Michigan, USC that have had huge enrollments for 100 years get in the game then small time schools like A&M with be back to where they are now.
NIL as we know it will change within the next year. Limits will be placed on collectives and how it will be used. I don't think Saban should have called out Texas A&M but he is also not lying. He did not say that they cheated. He said they used NIL money in their recruiting pitch. A&M has NEVER been a strong recruiting school and to all of the sudden get the best class ever is a little out of normal. Jimbo just needs to own what they did and say that they followed the existing rules and used NIL to secure his class. By trying to get people to think that it played no part is just silly.
How exactly is first round drafted relievers year after year after year qualify as a disaster?
Hall is one of those players with an immense amount of talent but no desire to be coached. He wants to just get on the field and let him do what he does. That kind of mentality works in high school. It will work at a smaller school that cannot afford to not put him on the field. It will not work at a big time school.
There is absolutely NO rumor he is leaning towards Georgia
You are a sad, sad, sad little man. Your the kind of guy who beats his kids to feel better about himself.
We don't need alcohol sales. I am fine with bringing in miniature bottles like I have since the 80's.
He didn't call out Jimbo about the Portal and NIL. He said that they were not a good plan for college football. He is correct. there are around 2000 kids in the transfer portal. Most will never get another scholarship. The 5star who isn't starting at his current school will be fine but the majority are being hurt. As for NIL, having kids skip their senior season in high school to potentially earn NIL money is a dangerous slope. Lane Kiffen was the coach who claimed that Jimbo was using large amounts of money to bolster his class, NOT Saban.
80% of NFL players are broke within two years of leaving the league. He might be Tom Brady. He might be Colin Kaepernick. Only time will tell.

The stat means nothing for the future but shows how ready a team is to take care of business against a lesser opponent. Alabama was at 100 when they lost to A&M. The prior record was around 72.
It will not be the power 5 that break away. It will be the power 4. Once the big 12 loses Texas and Oklahoma the TV revenue will dry up and it will be another version of the AAC. Only the SEC and the Big 10 have any real power.
You settle the case not based on guilt or innocence but on politics. Now is not the political environment to put on a defense against a black person claiming racism.
