I don't care what they call our defense...if it locks down the opponents I will be happy
Alabama gave up 29 points to Texas A&M. What is your point? Good defenses have bad days. Good defenses can get their ass kicked by a well executed offense.
As for having southern recruits, we have had plenty of those and will continue to do so.
I think what you are looking for is XBox like dominance. That does not happen.
People bitched about this same stuff during the Tressel era (i.e. get those speedy kids...get those SEC kids...get those blah blah blah)....then we go out and kick Arkansas' ass, yet people still reference a game in 2006 that we suck on defense "compared to the SEC." I got news for you.....if you applied the same standards to Alabama, they lost to Lousiana-Monroe in 2006, got crushed by Utah in a BCS game in 2007, and blew a 24 point lead to Auburn in 2010. Does Alabama's defense suck? Do they need more southern players?
Take a look at Florida in 2010 and 2011 with a bevy of "southern players" on their roster. They were killed more times in 2010 then OSU was killed in an entire decade of football. Perhaps their defense is also "not elite" (they did just give up 33 points to Lousiville) and they should also recruit more "southern players."
