Didn’t A&M just recently gather the best recruiting class money can buy? By a pretty healthy margin at that I believe was the consensus among the people who actually know what they’re talking about on that topic. It’s not like they had a complete know-nothing as their HC at the time. Still though, opposing coaching overcame that NIL advantage. College may be more about the jimmys and joes than x’s and o’s, but the coaches themselves are jimmys and joes as well…..some are “men amongst boys” in the same sense that concept applies to the players. Saban, amongst a few others, is the coaching version of that premise. And I’m no Alabama fan.
