This list is horse shite. So, Saban take credit for recruiting players Miles coached. Miles could compile his list and would end up with most of the same players at LSU. I guess Miles should take credit for Brandon Weeden, Dez Bryant, etc...Bama claiming more things they don't deserve...Shocking

Demetrius Byrd came in with LSU's '07 class. How is he claiming him?

Ricky Jean-Francois, Brandon Lafell, and Trindon Holiday all signed after Miles was hired and never played a snap for Saban. Taking credit for them is a stretch, at best.

I love the fact that his picture states "Including 33 players from the University of Alabama." Should also say "and 46 players from LSU - half of which never played under him"

I can't believe he's claiming some of these guys. I can name 5 that he's never even met.

I'm surprised they didn't include every drafted player on the Miami Dolphins roster from '05-'06.

How about listing the 53 NFL players Saban did NOT coach in Miami?

If just "recruiting" a player that makes the NFL counts, every SEC coaches list should be in the thousands.

The he never signed or coached Trindon, Demtrius, and RJF yet has them on here is ridiculous. All early reports were that Saban wasn't going to give Trindon a scholarship and Miles came in and did.

It is a good recruiting tactic however. I think other coaches should emulate it. Miles' won't be too shabby either.

Not Stupid at all adawg. He's (they) are selling Saban as the ticket to the NFL pay day. He just happens to be at Bama. Even the title line read:

"Pics of His NFL Players" not:

"Pics of Alabama NFL Players."

Great recruiting tool in a day where kids are more likely to choose where they can play sooner and who can get them to the NFL over academics, tradition, etc. JMHO

Demetrius Byrd is an outright lie, unless he literally counts "recruited" –I have no idea if Saban ever spoke with him. He came to LSU in 2007. I don't care to look at any more.

A better study would be: how many actually got 2nd contracts with the same team

What is really stupid is that it says "recruited". Hell if you use that criteria you could list every single player he ever talked to or sent a letter. No matter if he signed or not.

I guess I understand why some are miffed, but this seems like a pretty smart thing to do to me. He's taken some license here, but I wouldn't call it dishonest.

A couple of things

Wheres the list of "Medical" discharged for the kids that were culled?


And its must be $abuns fault that McClain washed out of the NFL. I mean if you take the credit for things you were not involved in than you should take the blame also.

"all signed after Miles was hired and never played a snap for Saban"

They covered their arse at the top by saying "Coach Saban has coached or recruited 111 NFL Draft picks."

Don't bash them for being "creative". Hell, the only thing that pisses me off about this is that someone at LSU didn't think of something like this for recruiting. Today's recruits respond to this stuff why not use it?

So who is going to do the same thing for Les Miles? We could count all of his Ok. St. players.

Saban def had a solid few from his Michigan State days. Dunno about Toledo.
