"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
Maybin, North, Jenkins, and Carr are all 4-star recruits (and Maybin is an EE), so Coach Jones has already landed more than one 4-star recruit. It's fine to bring up that point about competitiveness versus the SEC as a whole, but at least build it off the actual situation.
Carr and Maybin were solid to UT before Butch Jones was even a glimmer in Dave Hart's eyes. North had already taken an unofficial and official to TN as well as early as October, but credit is due to Jones for closing him, although we were competing with UNC and that position has essentially immediate playing time due to losing Da'Rick, Hunter, Rogers, and Patterson. Jenkins is a composite 3* therefore I didn't include him.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
I do understand that those stars matter but it seems like not always there were 7 3* recruits on the all sec squad I think coaching can do alot granted you need talent but I don't think the evaluation is always there some kid dont have much film
Some kid plays at a small school some kids work harder then others when they get to
College some kids pick up football juinor year and hve the body but havent been coached I think external factors go into this more then the stars indicate granted I think most of this doesn't apply for those select few player in the class each year the top 30 or so I'm just saying I don't know how much I trust the rankings when we get to players 150-600
We got here from them lane kiffin hire it absolutely got us in a hole and then the Dooley hire he was a great guy just in over his head. Everything will be alright though it comes in cycles we have been here before and got back to the top and I promise we will get to the top again!
