Even the author of the article said that IF.....Saban had violated a rule (and the author doesn't appear confident in that) that Saban wouldn't be the only one doing. That's not to say that if everyone is breaking the rule then that makes it ok, but this is reaching. This is petty BS and how in the world do you enforce something like that? I mean, at what point is it considered a rules violation to talk to a player? It's too broad.
well, saban allegedly talks to someone and reggie bush gets a couple hundred thousand dollars. seems like there is something else to be talking about. the ncaa has all but swept that under the rug, i wouldnt be surprised if they try and make something of this. :roll:
It will be until Saban has been around for a couple of years. I have posted (not here) before that Saban to Alabama is a bad thing for the schools that have been cleaning up on recruiting because of the past (unagressive) coaching staffs. The easy wins over Alabama are gone also. Saban is a coach. The can call him a cheater, liar, etc.... It doesn't matter. Like others have said, IF by chance he did this, so what? He is one among every big time college program doing it. Saban is not stupid, he will not violate the rules. If he did this knowingly, there is a reason and I think that reason is because they all do it. But he knows Alabama's past and I do not think he would jeopardize anything knowingly.
I am really curious how this Barn issue is going to work out since they are under the "Repeat offender" status. I suspect they will do nothing to the cow college, but we'll see. :wink:
