Just read that Ryan Kelly who Bollman didn't offer out of West Chester at Lakota West is penciled in to be the starter at Center for Bama. He was named to the SEC All Freshman Team after RS. I remember during the recruiting many people were yelling for Kelly to be offered but they decided to take Bobek instead who is no longer with the program.
Kelly was only rated a 3 star coming out but had offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Tennessee, NC State
I bring this up as Bama has offered 4 Ohio kids early, people are saying that Saban is doing this to Troll Urban Meyer. Fact is Alabama will have 2 kids from Ohio that will be key starters for them this year in Depriest and Kelly. Saban and Bama is to the point that they don't need to Troll other coaches.

Bobek was no slouch. He was a hard worker and didn't end up transferring because the staff didn't like him. He was complimented by the staff during winter workouts last year. He just didn't fit the model and they had the talk with him. It sucks and I hate it when this happens. But it did.
Regardless, everyone assumes Saban has nothing but 5 stars on the team. But as you have illustrated, his staff does an outstanding job of talent evaluation.

The bigger abortion was not offering Taylor Decker.
That is a fireable offense.
Or perhaps evidence of something more sinister like a "scorched earth" tactic.
What about Decker did he not like?
The fact he was 60 minutes away, a buckeye fan, tall & athletic, good student.
the fact that he wasn't a fatass maybe?
Maybe he was too busy eating than watching film....
How many more times are we going to beat the Bollman dead horse?
Piling on Bollman never gets old. He deserves it.
Every damn chance we get....just to remember what happens to the "whole" when one of the "parts" is fucked up by a lazy, give-a-shit-less coach!!
So now bollman is being criticized for when he landed more highly regarded players? And going after his center evaluations after recruiting and coaching nick mangold? Think its time to let it go
Until people stop asking
