What an idiot...
Former Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley had perhaps the best description of how Alabama recruits under current head coach Nick Saban in the week leading up to the matchup between the two teams in 2012 in Knoxville...

It could have been an accident, but up voted to balance it out.

Fixed it for you.
+1 for you sir!
Probably a wanna be Bama fan in denial ... +1
One poster even said Bama would be double digit favorites over everyone but A&M. I guess we should just not even show up. Give me a break.
I mean with their schedule, they really on have 2 games to worry about... A&M and LSU. And everybody thinks that we are going to suck next year because of all the defections.
I can definitely see Bama being 10+ point favorites in all of their games except us (and it could be 10+ if we struggle in the beginning of the year) and A&M... that says more about their crappy schedule than their "awesome" team

Why can't he hold down his own state then?
I love how the media just ignores the fact that bama had no right to play lsu again last year. There is no dynasty because of that IMO. 2 SEC titles in 4 yrs is impressive but urban won 2 in 3 years. Without a legit playoff, save the word dynasty. Should say he's so good he gets illegitimate rematches and favorable scheduling. This sport needs a deep playoff to offset the biases.

ALL SCHEDULES ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL
2013 BAMA GETS KY & TN; LSU GETS FL & GA. SEEMS FAIR (ROLLING EYES)
LSU = MOST SEC WINS SINCE 2010
The Saban lovefest will continue until he is dethroned. But until then...

FWIW, my Bama buddies think that if Nicky wins the Title again in the next 2 or 3 years, then he will slide into the Athletic Director position and let Kirby be the HC. They told me that Kirby has not left Bama for any other HC job because he is the "silent HC in waiting" at Bama, and once Saban becomes the D, then Kirby will be the HC. Kirby's name has been briefly mentioned for a few HC openings, but nothing ever really materialized (I'm not even sure if he has been interviewed by anyone). I cant see any schools thinking that Kirby doesnt have the resume to be a HC, so it may make sense if he's just holding out until Saban leaves.
If they are right, we may have to suffer though another Bama Championship or 2 before Saban steps down.
I agree with most of this but have to admit I am cringing at your use of the word "defections".Those LSU personnel losses are normal, and for the most part useful, even expected, attrition.
The Bleacher Report isn't the greatest football or sports rag and Sallee hardly researched his article. In fact, I'd argue the article was written for Gump consumption.
It's way too early to cough up lines on next year's schedules. For sure, Bama has another "awesome" class but I'm not sure I'd trade theirs for LSU's. JMO
