    I love Cecil’s work, but I’ve heard some pretty outrageous stories about how big a piece of shit he is :laugh:.

    I'm not sure he is tbh. He's always expressed these transfer/NIL/roster rules would benefit us. Rich getting richer etc. But he says this and no one seems to listen, and he's not going to let us fall even a quarter step behind so he'll play by whatever rules they set. I just feel like the way he's talked about it before, even going back offensive rule changes, he asks "Is this what you want football to be?" And it's not necessarily what Saban wants it to be. I believe Saban genuinely wishes there was a more level playing field.

    My point being is no one listens to the gospel when he speaks it, so now he's got to murder college football so that will go back to hyper regionalized, run the ball, and play defense blue collar ball.

    I mean if they questioned him before the portal….are they not entertained now? He was right. We’ve gotten loaded from it. If he decides to speak up on this rule change they may want to pay attention.

    We haven’t had starting QB issues since the portal. Wait until we start cherry picking elite QBs. Would’ve been nice a decade ago.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding it partially, but with the 85 limit remaining, signing an extra 7 guys based on transfers seems like a magic trick even he may struggle to abuse. We already have a pretty small expected group leaving for elapsed eligibility/early NFL exits after this season so we'd need a record number of guys hitting the portal over the next year for this to matter.

    About to add one myself. Looks pretty good for Alabama here.

    Just posted in Nick Smith thread that I still think they are the team to beat for Jarace Walker, give them a slight edge on Jaden Bradley with Arizona right there and then in a real dogfight with Arkansas for Nick Smith.

    What it’s going to do is allow Saban to expedite the processing in the off-season of guys who don’t pan out in favor of guys we have to put on the back burner now because of class limitations.

    My Cecil story, and I may have shared it before, comes during the Alabama Texas A&M game. Most everyone is writing game stories, columns, notebooks and etc. while the game is ongoing but Cecil is chilling reading a book. Then you read his stuff the next day and realize the man is a wizard.
    He also didn’t wash his hands after leaving the restroom stall at halftime before standing in line at the buffet, so kinda gross.

    another big time person on Twitter also said to take Alabama to the bank on Nick Smith JR. Imagine this class if we land 3-4 5 stars. Build this man his god damn arena.

    This is going to be a fun fall signing period. The info coming out on Jarace Walker and Nick Smith Jr from our side couldn't be more different, so someone is going to look really stupid.

    No idea if true, but the rumor was they expected an ACL/MCL sprain or a torn meniscus, it ended up being less severe than even that. Bruised bone seems to be the most common suggestion.
