Merry Christmas Bama fans! Rivals.com has the Crimson Tide ranked Number 2 in their college football Recruiting Rankings. Notre Dame is Number 1.
More good news. Julio Jones, Wide Receiver from Foley, Alabama, is ranked the Number 2 overall recruit in the country by Rivals (Number 1 at ESPN), and Bama is on his short list. If we could get him, it would be Happy New Year, too.
Alabama Coach Nick Saban seems to be living up to the hype when it comes to recruiting.
On a related note, Rich Rodriguez, former West Virginia coach who pretty much accepted the Alabama job last year then changed his mind, accepted the head coaching job at Michigan. Why would he take the Michigan job instead of the Alabama job? John Adams has a thought:
...Why would he say "no" to Alabama and "yes" to Michigan.
Obvious answer: Because it's easier to win in the Big Ten than the SEC.
