04:44 PM ET 01.11 | One day after BCS National Championship stars Eddie Lacy, Dee Milliner and D.J. Fluker announced they'll leave Alabama early to enter the NFL Draft, the Tide will host a collection of recruiting talent better than the entire classes of almost any other school. The biggest prospect (literally) is Laremy Tunsil, considered the nation's best offensive line prospect.

I'd have to say, if you based your belief of him on this picture, I could see people saying he is a used car salesman or something.

I like the picture of him on the sideline in the Alabama long sleeved shirt. The ESPN senior recruiting analyst, Jeremy Crabtree, said this morning that he fully expected Alabama to sign another #1 class this year. So, he must know things we uninformed unwashed public, do not know.

Nick walks in your talented kids home and lays all his rings on the table and rattles off how many high draft picks he has coached...then you sign the dotted line (and take the cash lol) Case closed

must be nice having unlimited room on your roster. the rest of us should be recruiting all the bama kids that get booted from the roster to make room for the new up and comers. seriously.

Do you have all the names of the kids that got "booted"? A reputable link? Any evidence at all of oversigning? Or have you told yourself that Bama oversigns so many times that you convinced yourself?

This pick reminds me of the "buddy Jesus" statue in dogma

George Carlin RIP

why would i have the names of the kids that got booted? fact is, math is math. 1 +1 always equals 2. there is an 85 scholarship limit. if you've got more than 85 come august, someone has to go. is it a secret that the sec uses over-signing? the sec in their annual conference meetings (2 years ago?) acknowleged it and "tweeked" the rules to address the issue. saban defends over-signing. fact is, all conferences have some form of over-signing. the sec just happens to have a very generous form of over-siging, and it shows on the field. we in the big 10 can over-sign by 3 above the number of graduating seniors on scholarship. as an example, your losing 23 senior scholarship palyers, you can sign 26 this recruiting cycle (and remain at 85). that's it, cut and dry. those are rules and we have to abide by them. the sec has their own rules, the big 12, pac 12...... i know over-signing is part of the game. the sec is just the king of the process and for some reason you've convinced yourself that you don't over-sign. that i don't get.
