I was on vacation for the last nine days and I did a wonderful job of staying off my phone, so I’m a little behind on everything that happened in the world during that time. In catching up on all the fun I missed, I saw the photo of Justin Rogers with Butch Jones on Rogers’ official visit to Alabama and holy cow the replies are incredible.

The best responses are from Tennessee fans (for good reason), most of which are .GIFs of people laughing. It seems Rogers was able to do what I never thought was possible: bringing Kentucky and Tennessee football fans together.
On a serious note, Josh Helmholdt of Rivals makes it sound like Nick Saban made a solid pitch for UK’s coveted commitment. Helmholdt wrote, “I have been told it was an eye-opening visit for the five-star. One of the keys to this past weekend being a successful official visit was the personal time Saban spent with both Rogers and his mother. Alabama, like Kentucky, is recruiting the two-way player as a defensive tackle, which is the position he prefers.”
BACK OFF SABAN
