La has more talent than alabama, thus they come here more often.
Who has more talent Texas/Florida or Alabama?
Its easier to pull kids from huge states like Texas, and Florida than it is from Bama.
This makes sense - If I take emotions out of the picture (i.e Sabama), it is logical to not expend 90% of your time to get 10% returns instead it makes more sense to go after the low hanging fruit, especially when they are of equal worth.
Name me some game changers that are playing for Auburn and Alabama that are from Louisiana.
You got Lacy, who wasn't offered by LSU. Then..who?
I mentioned perceived game changers , instead I should have said high profile and/or recruits in positions of need - the few that I can think of are - Landon collins, Lacy,Kenny Bell,Sylve, Denzel Devall, Greg Robinson, Trovon Reed.
It just seems that head to head, there seems to be enough number of players that choose to go out especially in the last few years.
But the flip side of the argument is that LSU does the same thing to teams in Florida and Texas and other places - but
dangit , I look upon that as being only natural.
