Consider the talent Bama is able to put on field. They only get better with good talent to compete with. Assuming they are Wither's type of guys, I would expect hard work and love football or they won't last long.


please tell us more about the Alabama football talent pool


Thanks FLT for answering ahead of me.

Prataliscious...
You can say "Consider the talent ______ (any good program) is able to put on the field." You can say UH, Boise State, Washington, and on and on that is not the National Champions. It doesn't change the fact that their depth on practice squad is very good too. Maybe not great enough to start at those schools but at a TXST, yeah... they're probably just as good as CURRENT roster.

Here is some A&M examples for you over the last 10 years:
-A&M beast #1 Bama with Johnny Football. A&M's defense says two transfer RBs helped them prepare for Eddie Lacy because they were on their practice squad (sitting out their transfer year).
-Billy Gillispie starts 3 walk-ons in A&M's first game (over Acie Law NBA lottery pick 3 years later) under him; one of those walk-ons earned a scholarship and was a big part of Gillispie's 3 year career there.

So... yes... walk-on and their talent may not be seen on Saturdays but talent is important to really help 1st team and 2nd team get better. Beating up easy or less talented players doesn't help anyone, most importantly the starters.
