06:19 PM ET 05.16 | Alabama is the latest program to tout its ability to get players into the NFL, here done by director of player personnel Tyler Siskey via tweet. It's a picture of every player that Nick Saban has put into the NFL, but unfortunately for the #BuiltByBama narrative they're trying to create, a huge number of those players did not attend Alabama. There are players from Toledo, Michigan State, and LSU on there as well. The thing is, though, nothing on that poster is inaccurate. Nick Saban coached all of those players when they were in college, but the inclusion of #BuiltByBama is a bit disingenuous.

You call that cheating? I don't think it's the smartest thing ever, but you think it is cheating?

You remind me of the Andy Griffith episode when Barney was yelling at Gomer about littering and blew it all up into a huge mountain, so Gomer picks up a piece of gum wrapper and says, "I wouldn't want to start a crimewave."

Dear Alabama. Please don't claim NCs like the rest of us do. We don't like it because when you claim them the way the rest of us do, you have 15 NCs and we still only have 1 or 2.

That's spot on! I wonder if the posters are printed on money paper stock!

He's a Penn State guy. He supports the molestation that went on there, but hates Alabama.
