Let's go! Fall camp means kickoff is nigh! As usual some people are already whining about Alabama's ranking, Coach Saban's existence, and how the Crimson Tide's recruiting is really ho-hum. Ho-hum, indeed.
Players are glad to be in Tuscaloosa working hard; recruits want to be in T-town making their name. It's the place to be, if you want to eventually join the 74 former Alabama players who are active in the NFL. Wow. The process pays off for those who are willing to devote themselves. Talent surrounded by talent times unrelenting effort is a winning formula.
