Spurrier says some B1G coach is recruiting dirty

“We don’t run into much of any negative recruiting around here as SEC coaches,” Spurrier said. “We were involved with a player who was being recruited by a Big Ten school. They got negative a little bit with ‘There’s a lot of crime in Columbia, the big city. They don’t graduate their players,’ which was completely untrue. They searched for a little bit of everything but the player came with us anyways.”

I don't have a problem with "negative" recruiting. That being said I am really curious about this incident. I am guessing Urban but that could just be me hating Urban.

The main issue is the age of coaches. I don't know how much age plays a role in recruiting or negative recruiting but I see how the coach being your Granddad's age could make you wonder if e is retiring soon.

Per Mike Farrell in this video: LINK

He also says he's not even sure who is contending with Michigan right now. I haven't done more than exchange one word texts with Derrick pretty much since his official visit, but it shouldn't be a surprise they're leading. 

Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year.

Remember the 5 star at the UA AA Bowl who chose Alabama despite his mom sitting next to him, who wanted him to go to LSU? According to the mom, Saban closed the deal by offering the recruits girlfriend a job. Bama of course can't comment on any prospective student athlete until after a LOI comes in. But this, while dirty as all hell, isn't actually against NCAA rules. It only is for basketball recruiting. The NCAA makes zero sense. If we were worried about Saban finding new loopholes after the SEC "cracked" down on oversigning, here's one he found.
