Thanks for the correction, my mistake.
I certainly would love to believe you, but until we get to our first ACC championship game we're grasping at straws here. I just hope we dont end up in a perpetual cycle of suckage like Tennessee.
I think a lot of it has to do with where they go. Upshaw was one of the lesser heralded linebackers/ends at 'Bama but he was drafted by the Ravens and will likely turn into a pretty solid player...
One theory ( I have heard) is that Saban players are players that train to fit his system and max out athletically at Alabama. Do not translate to the NFL that well.
