08:16 AM ET 04.20 | If you're keeping score -- and if you're in SEC country, you probably are -- the scoreboard shows Alabama with a decisive lead. Thanks to a commitment over the weekend, Alabama is out to an early 11-3 lead over Auburn in college football recruiting, and the Tigers won't be able to tie things up with a touchdown and a successful two-point conversion. It's going to take a whole lot more work than that to pull even with the Crimson Tide. And honestly, along with leading the quantity battle for recruits, Alabama is also leading the quality battle. Seven of its recruits are rated four-star players or better by Scout.com, while Auburn only has one four-star kid. The weekend addition to Alabama's impressive class is defensive end Ryan Anderson, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound athlete out of Daphne (Ala.). He also reported a scholarship offer from Auburn, along with Illinois, Kentucky, South Florida and Tennessee.

In one case, the questions at some schools in the SEC are "Can you tell time?, Can you count to eleven? and Can you count to $180K?" ...sorry about insulting your avi Colonel.

It's cool DC, that was funny, I agree. You only got TN, LSU and Aubie, need to work on that and include the rest of them, like, learning how to scoop and score, etc. Ha Ha

Yea, I need some help with some of the others since I'm not an SEC expert and lack their speed!

Just knockin' the fact he wasn't sneaky enough to get by with it. He gets credit for trying it.

I've seen some teams that couldn't stop the other offense with that many on the field!

Alabama cheats. Alabama pays players, blah, blah, blah. Just getting it out there so you guys don't have to waste your time saying it over and over.

On a serious note, this is looking like possibly our best class ever on paper, so far. Easily a top 3 class again.

And yes, I know, it's because we cheat, blah, blah, blah.

Nah, everyone does that so we need to come up with something else. How about alleged tree poisoning?

You do realize that many of those players were Gene's recruits that took them to a title?
