Almost as good as Wydree Siever.
well that's just, like, your opinion, man
Almost as good as Wydree Siever.
Laquon Treadwell now wants to visit Bama
But word on the street is that Ole Miss offered a lot more than the going rate to reel in their class last year.
The NCAA will ignore it. They will sweep it right under the rug
Ignore what? A picture of a kid with money? What, exactly, is he guilty of?
Money can be exchanged for goods and services. This also provides the ancillary benefit of attracting the attention of the female gender.
I'm not saying he did anything wrong but the NCAA won't even look into it. A college kid doesn't just come up with that kind of money out if no where.
Well except for the student loans which pays out about 7 grand over tuition which is what the scholarship covers.
Oh come on. A freshman just got to campus, flashes about a thousand dollars in 20s on the internet, and adds the hashtag "#struggleoverwit"
It's sure as hell walking like a duck and sounding like a duck...
Plays at Alabama not Oregon. Sounds like a crimson tide, looks like a crimson tide??
And the sound is quite calming, as long as you try to ignore the fact that the waves are red...
Well he is black.
That's a crime right?
I knew people in high school that would take pictures like that and trust me they were not SEC athletes. Or athletes. It isn't the smartest thing to do or even a smart thing at that but it's not fair to say its BAMA money.
Their summer job paying a lot more than mine.
Counting the visibile bills that's around $800. All together it's probably a grand.
I mean, the picture is right there. Count what you see. I got 39 bill faces exposed and just assumed that he has 10 stacked in his left hand on the far right picture. At 6000 in mostly twenties, that's 300 (post revision now, you're down to 250) bills.
In regards to the comment that there's 100 dollar bills below, yes, there's one on top that I didn't count as 100. The majority appear to have "20" printed on them, from what I can tell from the small picture.
Past this, I've run out of attention span to care further.
Thats Banjamin Franklin not Andrew Jackson on those bills.
Spare change mister?
smallest thing I got is $100.
"Alabama F Dee Liner"?
Is this that versatile Forward position in basketball?
Forgot the r.. Fr..
Or maybe he has a good summer job, works a lot of hours, and makes decent money. Just a thought.
Get paid in cash, keep all that cash for the whole summer, and/or don't have a bank account? It still says a lot about who you are if you flash cash, instead of being quiet about it.
I agree that flashing cash is not the most mature thing to do. But with the kid's character (or lack thereof) aside, it's possible that the money could have been obtained legally, contrary to the opinion of TheGhostofChappui.
The summer before I went to college, I didn't have a bank account. My dad used to cash my checks for me and I kept it locked in his office drawer. I had almost two thousand dollars before I left and used to love to count it.
The summers during college, I worked for a moving company making $8-$10 an hour and worked a lot of hours to make over $7000 for school.
If I had to bet though, I'd say this was provided in an envelope under the door. Dolla dolla bills y'all
why do you still post here?
All they did is sell back their books. No big deal.
What do you propose they do?
I'd imagine that it is not the easiest thing to prove without a third party involved. Most of the major recruiting scandals have been because someone on the inside either screwed up and left a paper trial (like Oregon's on-the-books payment to Willie Lyles) or felt like they were wronged and wanted revenge (like SMU and David Stanley). As long as the two parties are happy with the arrangement and smart enough to not leave a paper trail, there is nothing that the NCAA can do without proof that that money was ill gotten.
Easier, more efficient, and better to just get rid of the rule making this a violation
Thats somewhere between 3 and 4 thousand. I am sure its from a legit job.
They found it in a shoe box
Notice there's not a picture with all of them together. I wouldn't be surprised if they all combined their money and each took a picture with it to try and look like hot shit.
All the ones who don't have a bank account and want to look like hot shit, which is more than you'd think. How do you think all those check cashing places stay open in downtown Detroit? Those places are criminal, but there's enough demand for one to profit on every block.
No my belief is that there's no indication one way or the other, because kids who don't play sports do this all the time as well. It might be from Bama, it might be drug money, it might be he saved up his money from a job and exchanged it for 100s just so he could take this picture that he's been dreaming about all summer, or it could be that he has a wealthy relative who gave him some money for a new computer and didn't realize he's an idiot.
Well I would hope you're not following very many young kids on instagram...
Better call Saul!
Bob Oedenkirk is the most under appreciated comic of our generation. I hope the Saul Goodman spinoff that's been talked about happens.
Just a heads up, they are planning a Spin Off of BB with Saul as the main character
I thought it was Tyrone
Rocks a bottle of Dom in a club he's just another rich kid. When a recruit posts a picture with the tag, "struggleoverwit," after stepping onto campus, it's slightly more nefarious.
Eventhough I think Manziel is on the verge of blowing everything (he just had another incident), he definitely has one hell of a great gig/lifestyle.
I understand why kids take pictures with money, but I don't understand why prominent college athlete kids haven't caught on that it immediately raises immense suspicion when you do it
Most of your comments are pretty stupid too.
Not all of these kids come from broken, poor, families. Perhaps Mom and Dad have college funds that they no longer need because stud athlete son just had his college paid for due to his athletic prowess. Could be a little bonues fun money from Mom and Dad. Maybe.
(sp) bonus and use of commas
sorry grammar cops
Mine would have. That's why I just thought maybe every kid with cash in hand isn't handling "dirty money."
When in this thread did it become $5, 000, any damn way? Last I saw it 1G tops.
Is this the price is right?
I took some pics like this with my direct deposit pay stubs, but it just didn't look as cool.
Tremendous savers these SEC guys are. Good for them.
can't speak for the guy in the middle, but the other two are clearly holding a bunch of Franklins.
I took a closer look at that last night after I saw a few people people mention that. The kid in the middle has a bunch of twenties for sure on the bottom of that stack, and in one of the other photos (I think the left one), you can definitely see that the first few bills are hundreds before the denominations get shorter (presumably aslo twenties if the kids are holding the same stack, which they probably are).
Anyway, none of this means anything if we can't actually prove that cash was not procured in an illegal fashion.
I don't have enough points to post a topic, but Demetrius Knox just committed to Ohio State.
His face says it all..he has the "oh shit" look like he is holding a NCAA violation
Give them a citation for their pants hanging off their asses too.
there is that racism I was talking about...
Those pictures are obviously fake. Alabama players and recruits get paid a hell of a lot more than that.
My head and ass are right where they belong. I'm not naive enough to think that cash gifts don't go down at a lot of places...perhaps most. Unfortunately, that's just the way it is. I don't believe every kid driving a BMW or Benz is receving illegall benefits. Some kids just have families that can provide that. I do like to think that Brady Hoke and company do it "the right way" and I honestly believe they do.
Well, for what it is worth, "The Capstone Report" (an Alabama blog) is already musing about this particular incident (HERE).
The author defends Liner to a point, assuming that Liner probably didn't think that this photo would get much airplay beyond his friends and family (he certainly wasn't being thoughtful regardless), but then they end it with this passage:
"Pictures like this make the statement that some kids need the discipline college athletics and education brings a lot more than the programs and institutions need them, and if Liner doesn’t get that message quickly, he’ll be sitting with Brent Calloway up in the stands on Saturdays."
He does also mention that it may make some Alabama fans uncomfortable to see something that even sniffs of a violation, but he also points out the likelihood of the NCAA doing something to satisfy the schadenfreude of opposing fans might be slim.
Not sure why you referenced manziel. His family is loaded. There is no question as to the source of his funds.
Is so good right now. Being that its summer and all. So much grass....
I just figured that he successfully robbed a local 7-11.
"Look everybody, I just got paid!"
One of these days posing with fanned cash bills is going to go stale and lame, as it should have over 10 years ago. Yet for whatever reason it still seems to be considered a hip thing to do by young men. Most kids gaze upon these photos and laugh, mainly because they are ridiculous and stupid.
Interestingly, tuition at Alabama undergrad is $5K resident, $12K non-resident.
When are these kids going to get with the times? US Dollars?! Show us your bitcoin balances!
student beating up and robbed on campus, roll cash tide
He better hope Brett Calloway, DJ Pettway, Tyler Hayes, and Eddie Williams aren't still hanging around campus. If they are, he better hide that money or just put it in the bank.
But one thing that is possible - maybe he took out the max he could for student loans knowing that for one, his school is already paid for and two: he could pocket the cash thinking it's easy pay back when he gets to the NFL?
I had scholarships cover my tuition freshman year and took out 5k to live off as well with my part time job. Can athletes do that as well?
They can take out the difference in full cost and the scholarship. They can also get credit cards and car loans so could live a nice life if they didn't mind the debt.
they took the photos in some facility bathroom.
