Saban spends 50% more annually on his program than Miles does


That's a whopping $12 million margin.

Also, Saban spends $3 million on 20+ recruiting staff that have no coaching duties.

That money has to come from somewhere. And I don't think it is feasible to raise ticket prices right now

Bama wasn't spending at those levels before Saban. But then again LSU's spending went way up under Saban also, to Miles's benefit.

bama is in a much better position financially.

Jindal gutted LSU. Athletics was forced to step up and help academics and that left athletics in a 2M deficit.

His players are also "spent" for the most part from their time served under his regime.

More so than coaching and recruiting, this is why Alabama's football program has surpassed the LSU football program in the last six years.

Serious question: where are they surpassing us? Ticket revenue? Sponsor money? Booster donations? merchandise sales?

My guess is all of it. Even though they have Auburn to compete against they still can out-resource us. They don't have a plethora a FBS and FCS programs in LA taking away money and resources from boosters, fans and the state. Every dollar spent on USL, SLU, McNeese, La Tech, NLU, McNeese, Nichols, and so on is less money for LSU. I would hope that Troy and UAB start to gain a following and alumni base that starts to take a trickle away from Alabama.

Plus, they have boosters who are more willing to bend the rules. Plus Alabama more than LSU has its identity tied to football. They spend more and give more resources to football than LSU because they have to.

LSU under the Longs had a great academic reputation. In the South among public universities in the 1940s it was Texas, UNC, UVA, and LSU.

Through the years the State has devoted fewer resources to LSU and there's less money, time and energy for football. If LSU could have kept it's academic reputation it had it would be better able to recruit. LSU could have been like a big ten school with the best academics in the SEC and great football players. It could still have a generous acceptance rate for instate kids and have great graduate programs that would have put LSU on par UNC, Texas, and UVA.

Being at the game yesterday, its apparent they are really whipping us in slutty broads wearing winter boots which is a far greater tragedy.
