No problem. Ask anytime. I'm no guru but I do a better job than Yahoo! Answers.
Hmm. There may be some schools or coaches that do that, but I really doubt that kind of stuff goes on at Alabama. If a recruit wants to commit then Saban will make sure they announce it. Helps draw in even bigger names. If the recruit really wanted to keep it a secret I'd assume he would have a good reason, such as not wanting to catch hell from the locals, friends and family, etc., for his decision.
Interesting thoughts though, I hadn't considered it before.
Monty, believe it or not. NMSU Aggies finished undefeated in 1960 and won a bowl game. That is their last bowl appearance. El Lobo of UNM also had an undefeated season, I believe in 1982! Problem with the NM schools is that they cannot sustain this sucess in following seasons. Too bad. They apparently cannot keep the winning coaches on board.
