Rumors were swirling that Coach Burns would spurn Alabama for FSu. Those appear to be false.
Interesting that Lucky is the one breaking that scoop. So much for the claims that he isn't involved with the Bama program.
Anyone that thinks his affinity for Bama doesn't impact 247 Sports is kidding themselves. The same was always true at Rivals when he still ran that shop.
IDK if he ever claimed not to be involved w/ the bama program, but there's no doubt he's a bama guy first and doesn't hide it

He is the majority owner of Bama On-Line, i don't know if that reflects his rooting interest or purely a financial interest, or a combination of both?
Well guess what guys. I look at BOL (read-only) of course and I see 5,000 members online. I look at Geaux247 and see 500 to 700 online. We need to get off of our collective butts and get people signed up. Can we sway some people over from TOS, BBI or The Rant (do we really want them)?
Why is it that LSU people don't want to pay for information? Louisiana and Alabama have roughly the same population but the Barners and the Gumps literally beat us down in membership. Why? Are we that cheap? Of the members here most of us are from out of state. We have some of the best beat writers in S&S. We get both team news and recruiting info. Of course most of us here are in it for the recruiting.

I have had a bad taste in my mouth with him and the rest of the BOL Mods when they closed off the site after they lost to A&M. What a disgrace that was. Take your loss like men, so quick to dish it but shut it down when it was their turn to take it.
Outsiders could not post on BOL. Yea you must have missed it.
Outsiders still can't post on BOL...
I've never worked for anyone dedicated to the greater good than Shannon Terry (Lucky). He's never backed away from Alabama ties other than to say in the world of recruiting rankings and building these team sites and 247, he doesn't have a dog in the fight.
Given all the behind the scenes work I see him slave over, I will take his back in saying that there isn't any bias here. When Bama is getting top classes, it's because they are grabbing elite players. The 247Composite shows that those guys are elite across the board.
Just my two cents
