Default Freshmen Contribution

Is it wrong to expect our freshmen to contribute on the field considering that I heard several different freshmen playing key roles mentioned by the announcers in Alabama's National Title win?

It all depends on which freshman and how much you expect them to contribute.

Maybe it's just my own misconceptions of a lot of the threads I've read, but it seems like it's widely accepted that we are in bad shape when we have to depend on freshmen to expect to have a good team. I get the whole "not all freshmen are created equal" argument but I was surprised to hear so many freshmen playing in the National Title Game. I know its Alabama and the 5* recruits, but as I think a lot of us agree, it's not all about the *'s.

In 2015 Bama had 11 four star recruits. This year they have 3 five star and 4 four star recruits. Anybody who thinks stars do not matter probably is the fan of a team with a bunch of two and three star players. The Stars do translate into success, look at Bama or the taters for that matter.

Who was our last five star player? Probably Clowney, who has been gone for three years.

Perhaps that is the biggest impact of the upper * recruits, the immediate contribution, which also adds the depth.

In 2015 taters had 3 five star and 8 four star recruits. The taters have been out recruiting us for several years now, and it does show. We really need to recruit well for several years to even be competitive with the taters. In the SEC we are way behind the top their in talent quality. We are years away from being competitive for any championship. At least we have better coaching to look forward to.

I'm not suggesting that *'s are the end all to recruiting but finding freshmen that as a team we can expect to contribute immediately.

Each time someone claims we lack talent just proves "fans" are generally dumber than a cow.

We have talent. Just a little light on experience and proven playmakers. If this staff coaches as hard as it recruits, we will all be pleasantly surprised next year.
