In this case does U stand for used up? Nobody else comes close to driving their talent into the ground before they can turn pro. Miles would be hung out to dry if he rushed LF for 48 carries.

I can believe Bama had the audacity to make this statement. The last time Bama had a successful running back in the NFL was Shaun Alexander. LSU punches out quality productive RBs every year. Hell we got more starters in the NFL and more players on NFL than any other school in the country. Majority of LSU guys are stars in the NFL. The only reason Bama has beat LSU these last few years is because of the coaching staff, which is far superior to LSU coaching staff. Saban only cares about winning titles, LSU produces winners at the next level. Joseph Addai (Ret.), Jeremy Hill (CIN), Alfred Blue (HOU), Devin Hester, Spencer Ware (KC), Kevin Fault, and those are just RBs. All these guys are/where. Major pieces of their team (Impact players). Bama got two starters at RB in the NFL, and both of them are only starters for lack of other options. Hell, most NFL scouts have graded Bama current RB a fourth round talent. Fournette is already being projected to be a possible #1 pick. Bama fans need to take of the crimson goggles for a minute and take an unbiased look. I don't have LSU goggles on. I give credit where credit is due ( see coaching comparison in earlier statement) and everything I have stated is facts not opinion. You can look it up. Bama has never been RBU. They never been a heavy producer of an position. They have a championship caliber "System". LSU has a better roster "By far". The system that is place in Baton Rouge handicaps the team. Bottom line, call yourselves whatever you want, it a free country. You say it enough, you might actually start to believe it (No guarantees though).

More like Offensive Line U. None of those guys are doing anything in the pros.

You can't beg everyone to look at you then claim they are obsessed because they stop and make fun. Bama fans should blame the school for saying something so dumb.

Calling yourselves RBU would imply that the RBs have excelled in the NFL after leaving Alabama.

Who has?

Ingram: Servicable
Richardson: Out of the league
Lacy: Started out well, but has dropped off a cliff in Year 3.

Really??? What about, Alfred Blue (Texxans), Kevin Faulk (Ret. Patriots), Collins (Miami), Kevin Hester (Ret. Chargers), Jeremy Hill (Bengals), Joseph Addai (Former Colts), Stevan Ridley (Jets), etc. Most common denominator, LSUUUU!!!!!!

Not a legit claim Bama. Lacy is the only one that's done a lil bit and he's been a little troublesome for Green Bay.
