Good move on Saban's part, but I still hate him.
OT: Tide Clear Scholarship Room by Punting Thieves
and coached at Mississippi State, no one would care. Not to mention, holding up Saban as the posterchild for oversigning is like making Andy Pettite the posterchild for PEDs. The only evidence that Saban has forced anything onto anyone is the NYT article that had very questionable integrity. He's easy to hate, I get it. I'm no fan of Saban, but following every roster decision he makes to try and uncover some dirt on him is silly. FTR, I realize that this thread was created at least partially for humor and the OP likely doesn't think Saban kicked the players off the team to clear roster spots. This is just something that has been annoying me for a while.
he still has 6 more players to get rid of to get to 85.
i will just put out this torch and lay this pitchfork over there, where i found it.
for anyone else, the 4 dudes trey speaks of will not be asked back for a 5th year.
Like picture - very funny
Saban didn't do crap other than follow along with the University's Judicial Review ruling (as if he had a choice). The fact is that the University kicked them out and, of course, Saban is just spinning it like he did something disciplinarian. He didn't do squat.
mgoblog has gone downhill if my half-assed, .5 second title that doesn't even ignore WHY the kids were kicked off receives more commentary than the actual topic.
I'm sure that this helps Saban's cause, but booting a couple of guys guilty of robbing doesn't strike me as repeatable "roster management." Now, when a third-string LB gets pinched for missing curfew by 10 minutes, then we'll have something to complain about.
Fact that the school kicked them out means saban just followed what already was directed by the school.
Oversigning...well it's roster management and what needs to be addressed isn't the 25 per yr limit but it needs to be 25 plus 3 in a yr or 85 total plus 3... that way if you only have 15 available scholarships and you can't still sign 28 something the sec is still doing.
If you want to define a position of luxury this is an example of it. These guys are mostly well recruited guys, who couldnt make the two deep. Their dismissal means nothing probably and allows them to reload.
That said. That is the luxury of being the best and getting who you want. This would not be something we could afford.
However our coaches would do the same thing. So dont think you can fault Saban.
This is what sec does, they take chances on recruiting, sometimes the recruit will work just fine sometimes he will show its true colors as a thug.. How do u play representing the student body and then you go and beat up students and steal their stuff... Gangsta fooo life LOL
