The kind of roster turnover Alabama has to maintain to sign that many recruits is borderline sickening. Every school does this to some degree, but none can compete with the ruthlessness with which it's done in the SEC. Student athletes are sold (or bought, if you will) the idea of going to those schools and playing in the SEC spotlight, but what they aren't told is clear: produce or get the hell out. Whether by hook or by crook, if they sign you to a scholarship and you don't live up to the expectations they had for you they're going to find a way to get you off of their books and bring in another full class of guys right behind you.
