I'm blown to bits, man.
Recruiting is not for the faint of heart. Been like this for years.
No it isn't. Easy to get caught up in it just to be disappointed and in some cases devastated when a kid doesn't choose your school.
You win some, you lose some. The competition in the SEC alone is beyond fierce.
That's why you can't build your happiness on the hearts and minds of 18yo boys. For me that is the one good thing that can out of the ArchManNardo era when we were in the depths of the abyss.
I get happy when we sign a kid we are after, disappointed but not sad when we lose one.
Yep. The one that sticks out on my mind the most is Joe McKnight.
He got his karmic justice.
He is one I had in mind.
Landon hasn't really panned out as the elite safety he was touted as at Alabama. I mean if you're that good you start as a true freshman (see Patrick Peterson). He only got to start due to injury as a sophomore.
I'd say the jury is still out on Landon, but he has been less than impressive so far.
I think Landon is a star and will have a huge year next year.
