Saban will survive just fine, but I enjoy all dirt on Bama.

Bama seems to be able to buy their way out of anything.

the kids were reselling their free textbooks a few years back  -- nothing

how is that any less of an issue than trading trinkets for tattoos at Ohio State? I

fj- That Saban name carries weight. A few years he came to  Gilman HS in Baltimore to recruit Cyrus Jones(Pats took him in rd2), and my nephew, a sophmore there at the time, talked about it for weeks.

Yeah, but cheating is cheating no matter who does it.

Belichick's name carries weight and the press has had no trouble ripping him when his organization cheats.

fj- not making excuses- plus I detest Saban. Bear Bryant probably did similar things but he had more flair.

Fun times at Alabama with two new players being arrested.

Lots of jokes floating around about how Saban will handle this. One is a stud O lineman and the other a scrub. Guess which one will take responsibility and which one skates.

WTF-"I want to emphasize once again that the main reason I'm doing this is that I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning," district attorney Jerry Jones told KNOE-TV."

It's all crap. We all knew it would end like this.Jones took a nice check from a donor.

Saban will probably pat himself on the back mete out  discipline that involves sitting  him against some cupcake for a quarter.

This is in Louisiana, not Alabama. I can't find the DA's educational background. I'm inclined to think there might be some merit to the dismissal. I think though that his "I won't ruin the lives" comment is regrettable. Should have just stuck to the legal arguments.

"I won't ruin the lives"..... haha. Tell that to the Stanford swimmer who raped that women behind a dumpster. Sometimes, a single bad decision can wreck your life.

Bama's S&C coach just got a 100k raise. Now makes over 500k a year....as a S&C coach. That's more than 20 FBS coaches make

Evidently, Alabama has self reported quite a few  recruiting violations

http://www.timesdaily.com/sports/alabama_football/saban-cited-among-minor-rules-violations-alabama-self-reported-to/article_cdbe7d15-77f0-5949-937f-248a931a72f9.html 

22 violations is a lot for a team that employs a huge staff to educate and monitor these things. I'm having problems with all these  self imposed  sanctions.It seems like the benefits of bending the rules will outweigh the risks when it comes to certain activities , especially if the NCAA issues mild wrist slaps like it will likely do with Bama.

Agree FJ and it appears that Saban is learning from Rick Pittino, Louisville hoops master of self reporting.

The following sentence is a lie.

Interesting side note. Alabama is currently ranked around 50 in the team rankings for 2018 recruiting. Your Terps sit at 20, V5.  We all know Bama wont finish there but it would be interesting if they lost their team recruiting crown  this year given the violations. Of course one could also blame it on losing their better recruiters to different coaching opportunities.
