    Yeah the real count at Trailerbammer was 50+ several years ago. Some estimates are 80. They hide the people, make them employees of other departments who just happen to spend all their time with the football team.

    Bama would be number one if you factored in the service department staff at the local Cadillac dealership.

    This 2012 ESPN article reported "There are 146 non-coaches who work in the university's athletic department."

    "Each has his or her purpose in the grand scheme of things -- what Nussmeier called coach Nick Saban's "organizational structure.""

    "The "system" is predicated on responsibilities. Each person knows his or her role and is accountable for seeing it through. While the games are being played on Saturdays, someone is cutting up game film for the next week's opponent, analyzing tendencies and strengths and weaknesses. Before assistant coaches ever lay eyes on some prospects, someone will have gathered film and packaged it into a highlight reel. Instead of having coaches work on responsibilities A through Z, the support staff is able to work ahead and cut down the to-do list, allowing coaches to focus on what's important."

    "Since Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa, the amount of money paid to the support staff and administration has risen steadily. From 2009-11, the salaries and benefits paid to support staff have gone up 31.7 percent, an increase of $4,366,308, according to figures obtained by ESPN."

    I remember a time when SOS was as deep in the heads of bama and aub fans as Saban is now in your heads. They had this call in show in the evenings for SEC football (back in the 90s) and those old boys ALL over the south wanted an offense just like the one we had down here in Gville. The envy for the SOS method was what Saban has now, Saban aint immortal and that pendulum is gonna swing back VERY soon,

    Yeah, I read that too and the number has risen since then, but some of those are video techs etc.

    I just know that Kiffen said he didnt know the names of everyone and that it was also said that the GAs have staffs of dozens of GAs. The number damn sure isnt twenty or whatever was listed in that article.
