According to ESPN's Paul Finebaum, Ole Miss and Texas will attempt to raid Alabama's roster as the transition from Nick Saban to Kalen DeBoer happens...

“There’s no doubt that those two guys who are … I’ll say Lane Kiffin probably knows as much about what’s happening in Alabama right now as Nick Saban and Kalen DeBoer,” Finebaum said on McElroy and Cubelic on Monday. “Because that’s just the way Kiffin operates. So I mean, that’s what I would be doing. And it’s one thing to do it if Nick Saban was a coach, they would still try to do it. It’s another thing dealing with somebody who doesn’t really know how nasty it gets.”

Finebaum added that it's a "rare" opportunity with this elite of a roster potentially being recruitable for transfers.

“But you’ve got a rare opportunity now if you’re an elite SEC coach, to maybe get that one player, maybe maybe two players who can make a difference in one game which might be the difference between winning and losing a national semifinal," he added.

According to the guys at Jimbob's bait, tackle and sandwich store the NIL money will hurt the Tide the most.

Lazy take because Sark and Kiffin coached with Saban. Norvell and FSU are actually raiding Bama’s roster. Ole Miss has zero Bama transfers. Texas has one. FSU has 5.

So with DeBoer prolly bringing over his OC from W...does BK go after Rees and possibly lose Sloan &/or Hankton in the process?

This is the same Tommy Rees that ND was trying to fire for being too conservative.

If he is willing to risk losing Sloan and probably Hankton, not to mention the possibility of Underwood decommitting, just to bring in his BBQ buddy, then he's Les Miles level stupid.
