Alabama Football: June 17, 2013

Recruiting Never Stops.

Since the beginning of the month, Alabama has gotten 6 really good commitments for the Class of 2014.

I'll start with my favorite of the bunch.

Cornwell is 6'5" 230 lbs, from North High School in Norman, Oklahoma. This is what happens when you talk shit about us, Bob Stoops. We take the top player in the country right out of your back yard. 

David's HS coach Wayne Standley had the following to say:

"Coach Saban runs a first class organization. They do things the right way. David is a very quick learner. He is constantly striving to get better. It's a good situation for him and the University Of Alabama"

Cornwell's biggest strengths are his size and arm strength. Those are things that can't be taught. His weaknesses are easily teachable things, accuracy and consistency.

He said the he is very happy to be done with the recruitment process and that he will be back on visits to Tuscaloosa to help recruit other top players to join his class to Bama.

It's gonna be an unbelievable battle to see who takes over for AJ McCarron next spring. Alec Morris will be returning with the most experience but he will have to compete with two other 4 star QB's, Cooper Bateman and Luke Del Rio, as well as Cornwell.

I think a couple of guys are gonna transfer before or after next season and either way we will have a couple of great options to carry on with as we learn to deal with life without AJ. 

Kief is 6'5" 200 lbs, from Cincinnati, OH. Nick Saban is STILL taking Urban Meyer's lunch money. 

If you can watch that video and not IMMEDIATELY fall in love with this kid, then you need to go root for Auburn or something. Derek said he was tired of cold weather and wanted to play down here and not in Ohio. He spurned Ohio State! That's always awesome, now that Urb is up there.

Julio Jones wasn't the end of superstar WR's at Bama. He was the beginning.

  • One of the top 10 Offensive Centers in the nation, JC Hassenauer.

JC is 6'3" 295 lbs, from Woodbury, MN. We got players all over AMERICA wanting to come play for the Tide!

6'3" 285. Corona, CA

Denver, CO. We bad. We nationwide.

Anytime a team offers a scholarship to a kicker, you know he's good. And Saban has made a point of giving scholarships to top kickers and it's worked out so far.

6'3" 295, Rochelle, GA.

Yet another player that cited being comfortable and winning as his reason for loving Alabama. 

News And Notes

Alabama has put a waterfall in their locker room. Because NOBODY ELSE HAS IT, DO THEY? 

Recruits are eating it up. So I'm cool with it. It does sound pretty awesome and it's just another example of how Nick Saban will stop at NOTHING to continually appeal to younger recruits year in and year out.

Texas A&M AD, Eric Hyman, cracked a joke at a booster event: "What does the moon and Texas A&M have in common? We control the Tide".

Apparently this man has not read his history books. He did see what Saban did to Timothy Richard Tebow in 2009, after losing to Tebow the year before. 

He must not have seen what Saban did to Auburn in 2011 and 2012 after the epic 28-27 loss in 2010.

He must not have seen what we did to LSU in the BCS Championship Game rematch after losing in a BS field goal game, 9-6, in the regular season. 

When your last name is the same as a female body part, you probably should shut the hell up and not poke a stick at the lion of the jungle when you are a tiny pussy cat.

If I were head coach Kevin Sumlin, I'd be pissed that my boss is adding this offseason clutter and pressure on my program. 

And no favors are being done for Heisman celeb QB Johnny Football. The weight of the world is on his shoulders to win it all this year, and the athletic director is fueling the enemy for you.

And Johnny is cracking under the pressure!!

Nobody knows what caused it to happen, but Manziel tweeted, "Bullshit like tonight is a reason I can't wait to leave College Station. Whenever that may be."

No matter the reason, he should know better than to put that out to the public.

He then deleted that tweet and followed up with, "Don't ever forget that I love A&M with all my heart, but please please walk a day in my shoes."

Poor Johnny. I don't know how he'll ever survive.

Danny Sheridan said some ignorant garbage criticizing Nick Saban's utilization of his backup QB's. But nobody cared, so no reason to repeat it here.

Seriously, Alabama has won 3 out of the last 4 BCS national championships with Nick Saban calling the shots. I'll just continue to trust his judgment. 

Tim Brando released his Top 10 for the season. He has Louisville No. 1. Alabama's isn't Top 5.

Brando has Ohio St No. 2

Texas A&M, who he says will beat Alabama again this year, is No. 3

Stanford is No. 4

Georgia, who Timmy boy thinks will beat Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, is No. 5.


Alabama is No. 7. 

Brando is an attention whore. And he can no longer hide his disdain for the Crimson Tide and the people of Alabama. 

Go here to see an AWESOME video that will get you punped for this upcoming season. It's so easy to see that we have the greatest program ever right now.
