    Alabama is in a heap of trouble, they are down at 127th!

    In all seriousness, we are losing Tua and 2 of our best receivers, and 2 of our starting db's, but we started 4 freshmen on defense and 2 of our experienced linebackers are coming back, Najee Harris is back and 2 starting linemen are back. Many of our non-starters got significant playing time last.season. I was optimistic until I read that article. I mean those guys are the experts right?

    I would venture Kp that Bama's new players next year are head and shoulders above those returning players of teams with way more returning production.

    MCG, I used the term "experts" with a little sarcasm intended, but I really think Alabama is in better shape with returnees than in some years past with the exception of.quarterback.

    Not sure what that list really says, but I'm moved to ask, Does experience alone for players on a mediocre team enable that team to rise above mediocrity? In the case of teams who consistently recruit at the highest levels (Alabama, Clemson, OSU, etc.), it's more a case of reloading vs. rebuilding. So says Captain Obvious.

    Sid, I guess the upcoming season will be the proof in the pudding. It would be interesting to compare the records vs this article next January.

    I'll take team # 126 (LSU) and #127 (Bama) and their inexperienced players all day long over any team in the top 20 of this list. Although Texas A&M is in that top 20 so maybe Jimbo will finally start earning his keep this year.
