gotta scratch your head at this quote from andy dodd, a friggin' huge OL we actually offered, but has committed to bama. when asked about saban's response to his commit, his quote . . .
“He liked it,” Dodd said. “Coach Saban talked to me about what commitment means, and explained how committing to them meant that my recruiting was over. Coach Saban wanted to make sure I understood what I was doing. I did, and I’m happy with making the decision.”
WTF??? obviously, andy's been living under a rock if he thinks nick saban is even remotely familiar with the word commitment!

What a load of crap to play on the kid's ego. Unless, of course, he meant helping the defensive starters get ready by being a live blocking sled for a year on the scout team."They believe I have a chance to come in and make an impact."
Apparently we were in his top 3 with Bama and LSU. From an interview prior to his 'commitment':
Strange bedfellows to say the least? I don't lose too much sleep when we lose one to the red elephants."My top three in no particular order is Alabama, LSU, and Georgia Tech."

The Tomlinson case is the norm. A guy who could have been "the guy" at GT and will probably settle for being one of the guys down the bench at Bammer.
