Alabama ran away with the No. 1 spot in the “Oversigning Index” by CBSSports.com.No other team is even close to Alabama, which projects to have 95 players on scholarship for the 2013 season.The runner-up is Washington at 91, followed by Virginia at 90 and (surprisingly) Vanderbilt at 89.
Mash taters.Per NCAA rules, a college team can only have 85 players on scholarship before the start of the season.
Perhaps no other publication or media outlet in the southeast gets more red-assed than the prestigious Atlanta Journal-Constitution when it comes to how or why Alabama has risen to the top of the best conference in College football.
The original article at CBSSports.com--written by former Yahoo! Dr. Saturday blogger Matt Hinton--does a pretty fair job of assessing the Tide's football roster and explains that while criticism abounds, there's nothing illegal about how Nick Saban practices the art of roster management.
Edit to add: By the way, what team signed 33 players in the 2013 class? That would be Georgia.
