I really hate when people bring up bag men.  I'm sure every blue blood is paying players in some way.  Does anyone believe that OSU boosters have less money than Alabama boosters?  Here's an easy explanation:

We just need to win and the elite athletes will come.  We need a culture of merit based playing too.

This is the secret to the Bama recruiting machine.  He hires former head coaches with deep ties in those states for recruiting.  Maryland is a pretty hot area with talent.  He pays these analysts 18-28k that were previous head coaches still earning millions from their buyouts.  It's a win win for Saban because he gets the expertise for dirt cheap plus the recruiting.  Bama has one analyst dedicated to a recruit for the whole recruiting process.  They know everything about that player which is why they seem to be better in evaluating players than everyone else.

Reading the meltdowns on mogoblog, it seems like they hate Bama more than us.  It's like the Yin/Yang.  All that crying is just bringing me so much joy to balance it out.

One thing that's interesting with former Saban players is that he somehow keeps them inline but the NFL is more relaxed where some can not keep clean.  Rolando McClain was another example just like Reuben.  Lots of talent, somehow are kept inline at Bama but are in trouble in the NFL

I wish I knew more about him.  Will he make game time adjustments?  Will he be stubborn and keep the starters in there while getting blown out.  We don't know any of those things and he didn't need to do that in the first games.

My only beef with him is will he be like Urban where it's not a merit based system?  Will there be accountability for players or coaches when they under perform?  Those are two traits that I hope he didn't pick up from Urban.

The best thing they can do is keep ND out.  OSU and GA/OU get in.

Just read the espn votes

http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/25427784/college-football-playoff-picks-espn-experts

The only one that has OSU in the top 4 is McElroy who is a Bama homer.  The rest have OU with a few having GA

Comment 02 Dec 2018

It would be a blowout to Bama like the last time.  They should just leave them out and put OSU in.

Comment 02 Dec 2018

Interesting that if we had the BCS, the argument would be between the 3 unbeatens.  I would say GA as #4.  Their loss to LSU is better than our blowout to Purdue.  Even though they have 2 losses, I feel like if they played Bama again like that, they would win.  Bama was lucky in the end.  Tua will be healthy by playoff time so Bama will be different too.

Ideal case which would never happen would be

Bama

Clemson

Georgia

OSU

I think ND will get blown out by any of the top teams.

Comment 02 Dec 2018

I think it depends on how the coaches on the CFP committee view Georgia.  If it's like Tebow or Daniels then they are in.  I think it's between Georgia and OU.  ESPN playoff predictor has OSU in.  We'll see.
