Alabama is investigating whether Marcel Dareus violated NCAA rules by attending agent's party in Miami Beach:
OT - Alabama Investigating Player's Attendance at Agent's Party in South Beach
Lane's got another career ready and waiting.
It could be argued somewhat persuasively that major college coaching is as much about getting recruits as anything else. This might be the reason that some coaches are phenomenally successful when they get to choose their players (college) and marginal when there's a more level surface (NFL). I won't be shocked when a super college coach gets busted and decides to go "legit", using his persuasive schmoozing talents as an agent, and making a healthy buck doing it.
are parasitic cockroaches.
i don't think that rob pelinka represents a full 1% of the agents out there, so you might want to try something like 99.9% or 99.99%.
I'd bet that the decent, honest agents—like Pelinka—amount to about 1% or so.
they warned me that I didn't intend to breed him, we should probably get him fixed. They said things would be okay until he figured out what he could do with those dangly bits, at which point he would try to hump everything in sight.
I feel like, thanks to USC and others (including, unfortunately, us), the NCAA is finally figuring out what its dangly bits can actually do... So it is trying its damndest to try to hump anything it can, and the local bitches are doing their best to protect their asses.
I'm trying to figure out if that was the best or worst metaphor I've ever heard.
I'm leaning toward best though.
I'm going to be taking my talents to South Beach.
LMAO. USC, USC, UNC, Michigan, Florida, Bama... anyone else ready to join the show?
I think you left off Tennessee for the "VIP at bar turned brawl" incident.
After all, they had to deal with Lane Kiffin.
But... that's because they intentionally hired Lane Kiffin.
I will never feel bad for Tennessee. I'll consider this karma from 1997.
How does Michigan fall into this category? Our "allegations" are a little bit different than USC, UNC, UF.
How can you possibly attribute extra practice time to payoffs?
You mean to tell me that the mighty SEC's shit does stink. Ha nick saban, the victim, what a joke.
but I always thought that SEC teams looked at violations with a "if you ain't cheatin' you ain't tryin'" attitude.
"rubbin' is racin'".
Not getting caught is where the academic side of the "student-athlete" really shines through. You must be smart enough not to break the rules in an obvious enough way to get nailed. It seems like folks might have to step their game up a little on that front now that the NCAA has decided to show that it means business.
First of all, I would suggest that Casey Close be added to the list of ethical, non-parasitic agents.
Secondly, this makes me happy. With all that is going on in serious violations, it should provide a perspective in which Michigan's violations are seen as roughly equivalent to "spitting on the sidewalk," as they should be.
Wow is it me or has their been alot more NCAA Violations handed out this past off season than their has been in recent years.
You're joking with that syntax, right?
A 20 year old took advantage of an opportunity to party in South Beach? Holy shit!
This is the only problem with being good--lots of players coveted by people that will hurt the program.
But what kind of leverage does Saban have over the NFL? Is he going to steer his players to the CFL instead?
Maybe Saban will prove to be a renaissance man and send them all to Europe, instead.
