Do you think USC currently has the QB to bring it back to prominence?


USC will always have a qb. Max browne is already here and they'll always have one of the top qbs ready to go there

The way I look at it, when you have a good recruiting base like Alabama, USC, Texas, Florida St, Ohio St, etc, then you just have to bring in competent coaches to develop and coach these young players.

Alabama wasn't mediocre before Saban (Crimson Tide is a historic college football team); the RECRUITING had dropped off that's all.

You look at the few years before Saban came to town (January '07)

2004: 19th ranked recruiting class
2005: 16th ranked recruiting class
2006: 18th ranked recruiting class

Now look at '07 and beyond:

2007: 22nd ranked recruiting class
2008: 1st ranked recruiting class (Julio Jones, Mark Barron, Marcell Dareus, Courtney Upshaw, Dont'a Hightower, Mark Ingram)
2009: 2nd ranked recruiting class (Trent Richardson, Eddie Lacy, Dre Kirkpatrick, Chance Warmack, DJ Fluker, AJ McCarron)
2010: 4th ranked recruiting class (Dee Milliner, CJ Mosley)
2011: 7th ranked recruiting class (three 5 stars/twelve 4 stars)
2012: 2nd ranked recruiting class
2013: 4th ranked recruiting class
2014: 1st ranked recruiting class

*Scout rankings

In essence, I'm agreeing with you...I was just harping on your "do/don't" contradiction.



I didn't mean Alabama was mediocre all time before saban

I meant they were mediocre during the mike Shula years

You gotta beat Auburn if you're an Alabama head coach

Chip Kelly can go back to college football, but his hiring needs to be approved by the NCAA.
