Urban is smarter than Saban. No worries dude.
Believe it or not, they gave Mizzou and aTm PERMISSION to oversign this year.
As buckeye warrior said TAMU was given an exemption for two years. They can't be used as an example. The other teams cannot sign more than 25. Unless there is another example of the other long time SEC school breaking this rule and the SEC doing nothing, nobody can claim that is happening. Bringing in 25 every year and getting to 85 by nudging kids to move on by making it clear they will never play is not oversigning. Meyer has done it here with Bobek and most recently Reed. I hate the SEC as much as anyone. But claiming they still oversign makes us look like we don't know what we are talking about.
I will believe the SEC is no longer hugely oversigning when I see the likes of LSU and Alabama taking classes with 16 or 17 kids do to numbers. I said in my post above everyone oversigns, when you hear OSU insiders say if this kid or that kid wants in you find a way, it means someone else isn't gonna be here next year. But the SEC does this on much higher level. By the way Georgia the last I checked still plays in the SEC, they have 30 commits right now and they are favored with Reuben Foster. Laremy Tunsil and at least 2 other recruits.
If Meyer was nudging kids to move on as you suggest, neither Rod Smith nor Carter would be on the football team. If a kid isn't producing (i.e. Bobek, Reed), Meyer has admitted to sitting down with the family to find out what the hell is going on (like he did with Rod Smith) and to discuss options. This is entirely different than the published article about the kid in Alabama who was told that he will be taking a medical hardship waiver....
