Roy is probably committing to LSU.

Maybe if you are a gump.


Why would UA fans get upset about where Roy may or may not end up. Just a another recruit that if commits to LSU(most believe he will) another will fill it in no time.

UA has never had an empty spot in recruiting due to a recruit going elsewhere. We miss on more we get and it has yet to hurt us.

That’s a bad way to look at it IMO. Roy is good enough to be a significant loss for either School.

Did you see the defensive line haul we signed last year? We aren't hurting for D-Line talent. Missing out on Roy would be a much bigger deal for LSU than Alabama.

Um, it's pretty well known on this site that the difference between Alabama and LSU the last 8 years has been in the trenches.

Therefore, saying it would hurt LSU more to lose Roy than Alabama is an accurate statement.

I still think Roy signs with Alabama.

I’ve read this a lot from bama posters and am curious why y’all feel this way. If he commits to LSU for a second time, why would he all of a sudden jump ship to bama? Why not just commit there now?

Oh it would certainly hurt us more. But saying it wouldn’t really affect y’all at all like the guy I was responding to is just silly. I’m not gonna day I would be shocked if Roy goes to Bama, because it’s Bama, but I’m thinking about 80% LSU. If he is planning on going to Bama he is masking his true intentions very well.

do you have an ounce of proof these are actual lsu fans. Do also believe recruits when they say they didn't receive money? Do you think Bill Clinton never had sexual relations "with that woman"?

Do you think those posters on LSU boards (TD and G247) who still believe Ricks and his family already moved to Baton Rouge aren't really LSU fans? Do you think they're all fake LSU fans?



ETA: The Clinton line was pretty clever and funny though.

I posted this on the SEC Rant a couple of months ago in regards to the gap between Alabama and LSU's OL/DL recruiting last year:

quote:

Using only offensive and defensive line recruits for both teams from the Class of 2019, they end up with this:

Alabama's Composite score is 259. That alone would have been the #15 ranked class OVERALL.

LSU's Composite score is 161, good enough for 72nd overall.


It's not silly to say missing out on Roy wouldn't really affect us. It's the truth.

You are the only one still obsessed with this. I take it as a sign that your are butthurt about Bama not flipping Ricks as you had hoped. Stay salty, Bubba.

I hope Bama's coaching staff feels the same way.

Definitely not as much as LSU,that’s why the gap in the trenches needs to be closed.So if Bama is already stacked on the DL the goal here is to keep LSU from closing the gap,sounds like fear of competition to me.

I'm not obsessed, butthurt or salty. That's all in your own imagination. I merely pointed out a poster's remarks that were so illogical and silly that I literally laughed out loud when I read them.

I enjoy following recruiting and I do feel good when a recruit chooses Bama, but I don't get upset if a recruit chooses another school. Bama isn't for everyone and I respect their right to decide if it's the right place for them.

Btw, Ricks hasn't signed with LSU yet.

Well the better question is why haven't the insiders on both sides of the bammie/lsu fence made their predictions? It appears none of them share the absolute certainty coming from the lsu fanbase. Especially shea dixon.

Well now that we know the bammie cookout and the date of roy's commitment are not the same (Roy commits the 26th and the cookout is the 27th). It's painfully obvious he could commit to bammie with friends and family, as he's planned all along. Have his moment of trolling and local fame and then head to Tuscaloosa shortly thereafter for the cookout.

Now I believe LSU gets Roy, but all that shite in the above paragraph is squarely on the table. Especially when you consider the tradition of Louisiana recruits comically trolling the LSU fanbase. In fact, it's an annual thing now. Would anyone really be surprised if Roy and his family wanted in on the joke?

Oh and by the by. Shea dixon, your number one insider. The guy who won't yet make his prediction. Well he's the same guy who either heard what he wanted to hear about the Ricks' and their residence or he outright lied to all of you.

When his crystal ball finally drops for Roy, how much will it really be worth?

Your behavior suggests otherwise. It's actually pretty amusing.

Actually, you made it seem like there several posters on this board who still believe Ricks is living in BR, which is, as you said "stupid." Congrats on being the stupid one.

quote:

Btw, Ricks hasn't signed with LSU yet.


Glad to see you think Bama has a shot at flipping him. That'll keep you salty, butthurt, and amusing here.

Or Alabama wants to add to it's already stacked DL group?

Your "theory" of Alabama recruiting kids solely to keep them away from LSU is ridiculous.
