    I dont think we have to worry about Coach Saban stooping to this level. Actually, its pretty pathetic when you have to beg a 17 year old kid to come play for your program.

    What an entertaining read!

    Some quotes from it:

    "Nebraska, Stanford, Texas Tech, Baylor, Oklahoma State ... they all want him pretty badly. I get at least one call a week from each school, but probably three or four a week from Nebraska."

    "One that caught my eye," Britton said, "was when I got hand-written notes from every position coach at Nebraska."

    Britton Sr. said Callahan has resorted to "begging."

    "He said in one letter, 'I am not playing around ... I'm begging,' " Britton Sr. said. "He signed the bottom of the letter, 'Please, please, please, please ... ' "

    That is funny. Did you see that he just increased his bench to 205lbs. That isn't very much considering the pounding he takes at running back
