Quote of the day about Alabama & Nick Saban

“Oh yeah, Alabama is definitely one of my favorite schools out of all of the teams that have offered. I mean, it’s Alabama, they are at the top of the college football world right now. It was awesome talking to coach Saban. He was straightforward and honest, you can see why he is the best coach in the nation. He told me that he has never seen anything like me before on film and wants me to be apart of The Crimson Tide.” —Devon Blackmon, a 6-foot, 175 pound wide receiver from Fontana, California in a conversation with ESPN’s recruiting site Crimson Confidential. Story is free at the ESPN link.

For those interested in a clue about recruiting in 2011, this should provide a clue. Think national.

    Sweet. Very sweet. We are getting back to being the National presence we used to be. Our brand is finally coming back just like USC, Florida & Notre Dame(yes .. even though Notre Dame sucks they still sell themselves). These programs sell themselves because of the name — BAMA IS BACK!!! Sports Illustrated got it right.

    Hell yeah!. Bama never left, just took a little break. Michigan’s on the same path now, but they’ll get it back together. Auburn’s back too don’t ya know, back to the middle, the highest they’ve ever been.

    As I look at the type of player Bama is courting and then I see that Auburn is right there 10 minutes after Nick Saban leaves the house. I am impressed with Auburn recruiting that much more.
    Who would have figured that to be successful in the college ranks all you had to do was follow the leader and promise more than he does.
    The competition is at an all-time high in the UA-AU recruiting wars. But I have to give the nod to the New guy Gene Chizik after the 2010 recruiting day KO he put on the Sabanator.
    Every move, every word, every motion has been utterly…. perfect.
    The University of Alabama coaching staff is nervous….and rightfully so.
    Talk around the water cooler here at the Birmingham News is not IF Auburn will be in the title hunt, but HOW SOON AND HOW MANY Championships Auburn will be winning. The office is abuzz.
    And it seems like only good things keep happening at Auburn. There has not been ONE negative bit of news to report since Gene Chizik officially took over. Its time for Mr. and Mrs. Average Joe Auburn fan to buy those season tickets. Because this will be the season to remember. ATLANTA HERE WE COME!!!!

    Come on Bammerturds. Yall know that Nick Saban will be leaving as soon as a better job opens up. Okay. I was wrong about the Notre Dame job. But its only a matter of time begore he is gone. He has had like 5 jobs in the last 20 years. And if he doesnt leave for another job he will retire. And if he doesnt retire quick enough, he will die outright and then yall Bammers will be our servants again.
    Think 27 in a row.
    By the way there Bammers. You know who is hip and Cool?
    Trooper Taylor and Chris Luper. Thats who.
    Yall bammeriods might think that Nick Saban is cool but he aint. He is a nerd. High school recruits (the good ones who pick Auburn) can see Saban’s nerdiness and they are turned off of the University of alabammerturd in Tuscaloosa.
    Its all about this new age gangster wrap music with the blingitty bling and the hoes and the pimped out rides and the baseball caps worn anyway except the way they were intended. Young recruits cant get enough of seeing older football coaches who try to cash in that image and have those street cred thingamajiggys.
    Stereotypes? Remote control CD players with 5000 watt amps and 64 subwolfers.

    That is the new Auburn man. tons of street creds and has earned his respect with the G’s ( Alright I dont know who the G’s are, but they are some bad mofos from what I keep hearing….).
    Auburn is off the hizzle for shizzle and will win a championshizzle!!! And me and my homies Troop and Loop will crack open a 40 and pour some down on our homey Shug Jordan’s grave.
    There top that Bammers. I got street cred and I am jiggy. And yall are all jank. yeah I said it. I dont know what it means. But it sounds like it is really messed up.
    In conclusion.
    Trooper and Looper————Balling out of control.
    Saban———nerdy. should change his name to melvin.
    Auburn Tiger Fan.———-Keeping it real.

    I love it. We go to DC and Auburn fans still have their butt cheeks clinched because of Bama’s #13. Sorry you have to be so bored.

    In response to Kevin Scarbinsky, who by the way is so out of touch with reality the mere fact that he is able to print his rubbish just goes to show you that human kindness still exists. Let me refer back to his own comment for a moment, the fact that he mentioned that AU was like following the leader just reiterates my point that AU is right back where nature intended them to be. Behind Alabama. I for one, do not follow what Auburn does, only that the “PROCESS” is working in Tuscaloosa and has brought Alabama back to it’s rightful place. On top!! Cheezit is a long way from the ranks of a Nick Saban type caliber coach. When he proves it on the field, we can discuss this again at a later date and time to be determined. LET’S SAY NEVER!!!

    I guess that this perpetual pissing contest is entertaining for some. I have gone beyond that. My school is an National Power and Recruits Nationwide to fill specific needs.
    As far as what goes on in Lee County – I just don’t care. As the late Clara Peller screamed…. WHERE’S THE FUCKING BEEF ?

    so let me make sure I understand this correctly, because the barn finaly had a single comparable recruiting class to Alabama they are now going to be removed from one hundred plus years of mediocrity and win a National Championship, LMAO, this just can’t be made up hahahahahahahaha!!
